Tonganoxie 61, Eudora 50

Tonganoxie — A terrific start to the fourth quarter took an unexpected turn for the Eudora High boys basketball team Friday night.

After the Cardinals took a lead on host Tonganoxie for the first time in three quarters, the Chieftains responded with an incredible run fueled by an exuberant home crowd and earned a spot in the Tonganoxie Invitational championship game.

EHS (6-4) trailed by seven entering the fourth quarter, but went on a 9-1 run (featuring six points from Justin Ballock, plus an and-one from Joel Lauer) to open the period and take a 40-39 lead.

However, in the next 4:43, Tonganoxie (5-4) went on a 20-3 run to seal the victory.

“It shows our poise and our confidence we’ve developed,” THS coach Shawn Phillips said.

Tonganoxie shot 55 percent from the floor Friday, in large part because of Jeremy Carlisle (11 assists) setting up teammates for easy looks.

Keaton Schaffer scored a game-high 21. Dane Erickson had 18 points, and Ballock had 18 for EHS.

The loss put Eudora in the third-place game of the invitational against De Soto.

The Chieftains will play for the championship at 6:30 p.m. today against Silver Lake.

Tonganoxie — An early lack of offense cost the Chieftains in the Tonganoxie Invitational.

THS coach Randy Kraft had a serious conversation with his players at the half.
