There was a moment early in the second half of Thursday's game where it looked as if the Thomas More Prep-Marian boys' soccer team could match the intensity of Hays High School.

TMP freshman Eldemiro Julio, a mid-season addition from Rwanda, scored three minutes into the half to cut Hays High's lead to 2-1.

Then, seven minutes later, senior Jordan Windholz scored the first of his two goals for the Indians and the unraveling began.

"The last 20 minutes was just chaos," TMP coach Shawn Lawson said. "People were looking at each other like, 'What are we supposed to do?' "

Hays High (6-10) would score five goals in the second half en route to a 7-1 win over TMP (3-12-1) on senior night at HHS Field.

The win ended a six game losing streak for Hays High, one in which the Indians were outscored 21-1. The seven scored against TMP was the most since their last victory, an 8-0 rout of Junction City on Oct. 1.

For TMP, it extended its losing streak to six games, its last win coming on the road against St. John's Military School 4-3 on Oct. 5.

"Eventually one of us has got to say enough is enough," Lawson said. "I think we wore down emotionally and physically. We've got so much talent; we just don't have the endurance emotionally or physically. We lack the discipline that they have."

The game started slow for both teams before Hays High became the first to score, an unassisted goal by junior Graydon Olson in the 16th minute. The Indians added another just before halftime, an unassisted goal by senior Eirik Legernes in the 38th minute.

Hays High led 2-0 at the break.

TMP opened the second half with an important goal by Julio, only to have Windholz answer back a few minutes later. After that, Hays High dominated the game.

"We calmed down and everyone did what they were supposed to do," Windholz said. "I'm pretty speechless. The team coming together -- there was so much energy out there. It was just an amazing feeling getting that win."

The final four goals came in a flurry for Hays High. Sophomore Jared Thom scored in the 65th minute, and a mere 18 seconds later Windholz added his second goal to make it 5-1 in favor of the Indians.

Senior Lane Clark found net in the 76th minute on a perfectly executed header off a Shawn Herrman corner kick, and Herrman, also a senior, put the final touches on the game with an unassisted goal in the 77th minute.

"Just being able to have a goal on my last home game, it's just great," Clark said. "Knowing that we are done here in our hometown -- it still hasn't hit me yet, but when it does I'm going to feel it."

Now both teams will turn their focus toward regionals, which take place Monday and Tuesday. Locations and matchups for the regionals will be announced in the next few days.

"That 'W' definitely gives us some energy," Windholz said. "Now we have a better, positive outlook going into (regionals)."
