Chieftain soccer falls at Lansing
Each of Tonganoxie High’s last two games evolved into tough, back-and-forth affairs, but unfortunately, the Chieftains came up on the short end in both contests.
Coming off a 3-2 loss Oct. 1 against Perry-Lecompton, THS dropped a 1-0 decision Monday at Kaw Valley League opponent Lansing.
Both teams struggled to gain an edge in Monday’s contest, battling to a scoreless tie at halftime. The Lions ended the stalemate with a goal off a corner kick midway through the second half, and the Chieftains (3-8, 0-5 KVL) weren’t able to respond down the stretch.
Coach Brian Kroll said THS had scoring opportunities, noting his squad had about 10 shot attempts in the contest, but Lansing held on to preserve the shutout.
THS will try to get back on a winning track Thursday when it travels to Bishop Ward. The junior varsity squads will play at 4:30 p.m. and the varsity game will immediately follow.
