Let’s kick it, PV. Because we are at the nucleus of high school soccer awesomeness.
Defending 1-4A state champs Kansas City Christian beat Baldwin in a penalty kick shootout Tuesday, earning a spot in the quarterfinals. KCC, 9-6-4 on the season, will meet 15-3-1 Tonganoxie in the northeast quarterfinals.
KCC and Baldwin were scoreless through the first half, and Baldwin took a 1-0 lead with roughly 26 minutes to play in the second half on a Nick Joslyn goal. But KCC’s Patrick McEldowney found the goal with 8:26 to play, tying the game.
The teams played thirty minutes of scoreless overtime soccer before heading to the line for a penalty kick finale.
KCC scored on all three of its tries, and blocked all of Baldwin’s shots.
