Surviving and advancing in the soccer postseason pushes the blood pressure with an oh-so-close goal and trims the nails with a nervous bit. Tonganoxie had one of those matches against who else — Maranatha Christian Academy — Thursday in a Class 4-1A regional at Chieftain Park. MCA pushed the Chieftains earlier this season in Shawnee. THS finally won, 4-3, in overtime that night. It would be another overtime night in Tonganoxie. The game finished with 2:12 left in overtime when Bowan Jones’ kick from 23 yards out sailed into the net. THS won the regional title, 3-2.
