Friday, the Chieftains will host Bishop Miege in the sectional round (quarter-final) of the 4A state playoffs. Friday’s game pits the 10-0 Chieftains against the 8-2 Stags from Shawnee Mission. The two losses for Miege come from other private schools in the KC area, St. Thomas Aquinas (5A) and St. James Academy (5A).
The Chieftains are rolling along in their season at 10-0, but will face a challenge with Miege coming to town. The chieftains are averaging 45 points a game with a defense giving up just 10 points a game which includes 3 shut-outs. The game is expected to have a large crowd, so please get to Beatty Field early and show our Tongie Pride to the EKL visitors.
This is a KSHSAA post-season event, so no passes are accepted. Entry is $5 for Students (K-12) and $7 for adults.
