Jon Aldorff’s first Tonganoxie High boys soccer team earned a top regional seed.

THS (14-0-2) earned the top spot in the Northeast Regional at a seeding meeting Saturday.

In Regional No. 1, THS takes on No. 13 Eudora (5-12) Tuesday at Chieftain Park.

Tonganoxie defeated Eudora, 6-1, on Sept. 18 in Eudora. The No. 13 Cardinals advanced to the match after defeating No. 12 Hayden, 2-0, Monday in Topeka. The winner of Tuesday’s match takes on Maranatha Christian Academy at 6 p.m. Thursday. Maranatha, the No. 6 seed defeated No. 7 Bishop Seabury (7-7) by a 6-1 score Monday in Shawnee. THS outlasted Maranatha, 4-3, in overtime in a late match played Sept. 22 in Shawnee. The winner of that match is regional champion and next would play this coming Tuesday.

In Northeast Regional No. 2, the No. 2 seed Bishop Miege (13-1-1) plays No. 11 Bishop Ward (7-10) and No. 5 Piper (11-5) takes on No. 8 Kansas City Christian (8-7-1) on Tuesday.

That tie on KCC’s record came this past Thursday when the Panthers played to a scoreless tie against the Chieftains. It was Senior Night for Tonganoxie at Chieftain Park.

And in Northeast Regional No. 3, the No. 3 Basehor-Linwood Bobcats (12-2-1) played No. 10 Heritage Christian (7-9) after The Mirror’s deadline. No. 4 Sumner (11-2-1) defeated No. 9 Bonner Springs (7-8-2) by a 3-0 score Monday in the other regional semifinal.
