Hays' two high school soccer teams clashed Thursday at the McPherson Invitational, and Hays High School stepped away victorious.

The Indians defeated Thomas More Prep-Marian 4-0, scoring all their goals in the second half.

The win moved Hays High into the championship game. It's the fourth year in a row the Indians will play for the tournament title.

Hays High was first in 2009 and 2010 and second last season.

"I thought we played even a little bit better than we did on Tuesday," said Hays High head coach Chris Michaelis, comparing the match Thursday to Tuesday's 11-1 victory against Independence. "We passed the ball well through the midfield area."

This was the two schools' fourth meeting, and Hays High now is 4-0 against TMP. However, this was the biggest margin of victory the Indians have had against the Monarchs.

The previous three matches were close, with two decided by one goal and one decided by two goals.

"These boys play together during the summer," Michaelis said. "They are really familiar with each other. There is a great camaraderie between the kids on the field and even off the field."

After junior forward Jordan Windholz set the Indians' single-game goals record with six on Tuesday, Windholz showed his charitable side against TMP, producing two assists. In the 76th minute, he also added the Indians' fourth goal.

"Jordan did a really good job with (passing the ball)," Michaelis said. "With his outburst on Tuesday, I thought they were playing him a little more focused, and being the unselfish player that he is, he was willing to distribute the ball and did a really good job of finding those people."

Junior Shawn Herrman started off the scoring for Hays High five minutes into the second half on an assist from Windholz.

Senior Kellen Griffin scored the next goal in the 51st minute on an assist from sophomore Kyler Leiker, and junior Lane Clark produced a goal in the 64th minute on an assist from Windholz.

Windholz added the team's last goal on an assist from Griffin.

Hays High senior goalkeeper Josh Johnson finished with two saves, while TMP junior goalkeeper Collan Lawson had eight.

Though the Indians managed to get a significant lead in the second half, the two teams went into halftime tied 0-0. Hays High had six shots on goal in the first half and seven in the second half.

"We were just able to find our shots in the second half better than we did in the first half," Michaelis said.

The Indians will play McPherson in the championship game at 2 p.m. at McPherson Stadium, and the Monarchs will play Salina South in the third-place match at noon.

Hays High played McPherson on Aug. 30 and lost 1-0 at HHS Field.
