The Tonganoxie High boys soccer team has put together another winning streak. Tonganoxie now won its third straight match Monday with a 3-1 victory at home against Maur Hill-Mount Academy. The teams were scoreless in the first half. Tonganoxie scored first in the second half on a Daniel Zest goal. Maur Hill answered with the equalizer, but Tonganxoie was able to pull ahead and defeat the visiting Junior Ravens, thanks to goals from Javier Trujillo and Aaron Bitler.
Back-to-back victories this past week helped the Tonganoxie High boys soccer team move to 6-3-2 on the season. THS defeated Ottawa, 3-2, Thursday on the road. Tonganoxie had three different players score goals against the Cyclones, as Abel Mendoza, Grayson Sonntag and Aftin Boone all got the ball in the net for the Chieftains.
Tonganoxie High soccer players put themselves in position to extend their winning streak this past week, but opponent rallies prevented the Chieftains from picking up two more victories. THS played Oct. 1 in a Frontier League clash on the road against Louisburg at Wildcat Stadium. Tonganoxie senior Javier Trujillo helped the Chieftains build a 2-0 lead in the first half with two goals. LHS, though, responded with a goal in the first half and another in the second half. The Wildcats scored again in overtime for a 3-2 victory.
Tonganoxie High boys soccer has not lost since dropping the season opener. THS improved to 2-1-1 after back-to-back victories last week. THS defeated St. Mary’s Academy, 2-1, in double overtime on Tuesday and then outlasted Piper, 2-1, Thursday. Both matches were at home at Beatty Field.
