Updated: Bobcats win back-to-back behind two Kincheloe hat tricks, Braves fall in O.T.
Basehor-Linwood improved to 6-7 after a pair of road victories powered by hat tricks from senior Trey Kinchelo.
The week got off to a winning start on Monday with an 8-1 victory at Immaculata. Like in their previous meeting last month, senior Trey Kincheloe recorded another hat trick. Sophomore Zach Ferguson also added a pair of scores with additional goals coming from seniors Caleb Wilson and Cameron Kennedy and sophomore Tanner Brown. Kennedy, the Bobcats' starting goalkeeper, scored his first career goal after entering the game at forward.
Seniors Gage Zumbrunn and Sammy Seaton each notched a pair of assists in the victory as the Bobcats piled on to a 3-0 halftime lead.
"I thought we moved the ball very well in the first be just couldn't connect anything on goal," BLHS coach Austin Knipp said. "We didn't do a very good job of getting the ball outside which in turn caused the middle to cluster. We did a better job in the second half of spacing the ball out wide to open up the middle, which created easier scoring chances for us."
The Bobcats won their second game of a three-game road trip with a 5-3 victory at Perry-Lecompton on Tuesday. In what's been a familiar story this season, Kincheloe notched another hat trick. He was joined in scoring by Sean Potter and Sammy Seaton.
Basehor-Linwood will next visit Turner on Thursday.
