            The Teutons now stand 18-3 on the season and will get a familiar foe in the sub-state semi-final on Thursday when they will tangle with county rival Moundridge (18-3). The winner will then play the winner of top seed Ellinwood (20-1) and Sterling (16-5) on Saturday for a shot to play at the state tournament next week.
