There were goals aplenty Monday for the Tonganoxie High boys soccer team. The Chieftains won, 10-0, on the road in Atchison against Maur Hill. The game ended about halfway through the second half when THS stretched its lead to 10. That’s the magic number to force the mercy rule. The game ended with about 26 minutes left in the match.
Season results for the 2017 Tonganoxie High boys soccer team:
Tonganoxie High boys soccer keeps on rolling. The Chieftains held off a rally from archival Basehor-Linwood this past Thursday, eventually prevailing, 4-3, and keeping the team undefeated at 3-0 overall and 2-0 in Kaw Valley League play. Chandler Caldwell, Javier Barbosa and Isaiah Frese all scored in the first half, as THS went into intermission with a 3-0 lead. But the Bobcats would battle back.
A new era in Tonganoxie High boys soccer got off on the right foot last week. The Chieftains improved to 1-0 with a 4-2 victory against Baldwin on Friday at the THS soccer complex. The victory obviously was the first of the year, but also marked the first for coach Jon Orndorff, who replaced longtime THS coach Brian Kroll in the offseason. Orndorff said he wasn’t sure how that first game was going to play out following the preseason, but he was pleased with the results.
