THS suffers homecoming loss
Homecoming night turned into a rude awakening for the Chieftains as Osawatomie pulled off a 36-33 victory following a Tonganoxie High turnover in the final minute.
THS (1-1) was in position to run out the clock in the final few minutes but a penalty on third-and-one and a snap over the head of punter Jeremy Wagner on fourth down allowed the Trojans, trailing by five at the time, to get the ball on the Tonganoxie six-yard line with 39.2 seconds remaining.
It took two plays for OHS (2-0) to score as quarterback Seth Jones threw for a touchdown and two-point conversion.
The Chieftains started their final drive with just 25.3 seconds remaining and were able to advance the ball 24 yards in three plays before a would-be hook-and-lateral on a completion from Jeremy Carlisle to Justin Jacobs ended up on the turf and Osawatomie recovered its fifth THS turnover of the evening.
Senior DJ Lindsay had two touchdowns — one running, one receiving — and 187 yards rushing in the loss. Carlisle threw for 137 yards and a score and rushed for 167 yards and two more touchdowns on the ground.
Next up for Tonganoxie is a home game with Perry-Lecompton on Friday.
