It might not have been Tonganoxie’s prettiest victory, but they all count just the same. Tonganoxie High needed late scores to pull away from winless Ottawa, 31-13, Friday in the regular-season finale at Ottawa. Tonganoxie led, 13-0, when Ottawa scored with 1.8 seconds left in the first half on a quarterback scramble. Trailing, 13-6, in the third quarter, OHS scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass, as Ottawa’s Brandon Carlson was wide-open in the left corner of the end zone. With the extra point, but the upstart Cyclones tied the game. Tonganoxie, though, scored three unanswered touchdowns on its way to the victory. It was Tonganoxie’s sixth-straight victory after starting the season 0-2.
