Tonganoxie High soccer opens 4-1A regionals as No. 4 seed

October 24, 2016

The Tonganoxie High soccer team has been a squad of streaks this year.

THS won seven in a row before dropping five consecutive matches.

The Chieftains hope the trend can continue on the positive side, as the team has started a two-match winning streak. THS defeated Bishop Ward, 5-0, at home and then blanked Immaculata, 10-0, in Leavenworth, improving to 10-6 on the season.

Tonganoxie will open the postseason as the No. 4 seed in the Class 4-1A Northeast Regional.

The Chieftains will play Heritage Christian Academy (6-8-1) at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Chieftain Park Sports Complex.

The winner takes on the winner of No. 3 Maur Hill (11-4-1) against either No. 10 Eudora (4-12) or No. 15 Immaculata/Pleasant Ridge (0-14) at 4 p.m. Thursday, most likely in Atchison. Tonganoxie and Maur Hill played a tight contest earlier this month. Maur Hill won, 2-0.

Eudora and Immaculata compete in a play-in match Monday.

Other play-in games Monday are No. 12 Bishop Ward (2-14) vs. No. 13 Maranatha Christian Academy (1-14-1) and No. 11 Bonner Springs (3-13) vs. No. 14 Atchison (1-15).

Play-in winners will take on the top seeds — No. 1 Basehor-Linwood (15-1), No. 2 Bishop Miege (13-2-1) and No. 3 Maur Hill — on Tuesday.

Other Tuesday matches are No. 6 Piper (9-7) vs. No. 7 Bishop Seabury (6-7) and No. 5 Kansas City Christian (9-6-1) vs. No. 8 Hayden (7-9).
