WICHITA, Kan. (Catch it Kansas) - Holy war on the Stryker pitch on Thursday night, Bishop Carroll and Kapaun Mt. Carmel boys soccer keeping it a scoreless game for most of regulation.

Bergen Loveless got a late side-shot off as he ran out of bounds but Branden Lummus was there to scoop it up. That was one of the few legitimate shots on Kapaun’s goal.

Coming back from halftime, Kapaun earned a free kick off a Carrol foul. Abe Vargas put the ball up in the air and Holden Schaefer got a head on it right inside the box, front and center. The ball takes a turn wide right of the goal and it ends up being a lucky break for Carroll.

Several free kicks within the eighty minutes of regulation during a chipy rivalry game. Vargas taking another free kick but this time it was Landon Burrus who put a head on the ball and sent it up to Justin Brokaw. Brokaw’s shot bounces straight into Keagan Lewis’ arms for the Golden Eagles save. It remained a scoreless game.

Winding down in the game with 7:30 left to play, a little pinball action between the Kapaun offense and Carroll defense. Isaac Lager tried to clear it but his own teammate sent it right back into traffic in the middle of the field. Spencer Zachgo pulled ahead and gained control of the ball. He made a beat line to the goal and found the back corner of the net, beating the keeper.

That would be the only goal of the night as Kapaun went on to beat Carroll 1-0.
