Tonganoxie High boys soccer ties KC Christian on Senior Night, finishes regular season unbeaten

October 20, 2017

Tonganoxie High boys soccer has finished the regular season without a loss.

THS celebrated many upperclassmen with Senior Night on Thursday against Kansas City Christian at Chieftain Park.

The two teams then battled for two halves and two overtimes before finishing in a scoreless tie.

Now 14-0-2, Tonganoxie is two wins from matching the school record for victories in a single season as THS enters the postseason.

The 2012 team that finished as state runner-up went 16-4-1.

Seeding for regionals will take place at 9 a.m. Saturday at Olathe East High School.

Class 4-3-2-1A regionals will run Monday through Friday. State quarterfinals are Oct. 31 and state Nov. 3 and 4.

It's possible Tonganoxie and KCC will have a rematch in the playoffs, as both are in the same regional.

There's also a good chance that, if the Chieftains can keep advancing, they'll play teams they've already seen in the regular season. Tonganoxie's regional also contains eight of its regular-season opponents.
