The boys soccer team defeated Bonner Springs on Monday, Sept. 16 in a 5-1 win, making their record 4-1.

After numerous attempts by the Jaguars, senior Daniel Gray scored the first goal of the game with 18 minutes left in the first half. The minimal activity in the next 15 minutes was broken when senior Jack Lopez scored with two minutes left in the first half making the score 2-0.

In the first three minutes in the second half, Bonner scores its first goal of the game.  Head coach Arlan Vomhof was not worried about the Braves scoring so early in the second half.

“I wasn’t nervous, it made me frustrated. It was a total breakdown of the team,” Vomhof said. “We were the better team. We just had to do things right, which we weren’t at that moment.”

Senior Colton Chapman then scored with 14 minutes left in the game, making the score 3-1. After the ball had been kicked out by Bonner, Lopez proceeded with a corner kick. As the ball was in the air, junior Bailey Weeks headed the ball in for a goal with 11 minutes left in the game.

This was Weeks’ first goal of his high school career.

“It was good to finally get [my first goal] out of the way,” Weeks said. “I was running the back side of the goal, and it came to me so I scored with my head.”

With the Jaguars taking a significant lead, a goal off another corner kick by junior Teddy Gillespie sealed the victory.

This was Gillespie’s first goal of the season.

“It made [my first goal of the season] even better because it was off of a corner kick which doesn’t happen very ofter,” Gillespie said. “I would like to win league, go to state, but first beat Shawnee Mission East.”

The Jaguars will play Shawnee Mission East at home on Friday, Sept. 20.
