Sure it may be a soccer team that the Great Bend High School Panthers sees twice a year, but tonight’s matchup at Cavanaugh Field will be anything but a regular-season game.

With the elimination of bouth Salina Central and No. 2 seed Bishop Carroll, which lost 1-0 in penalty kicks to Newton, Great Bend has emerged as the highest seed remaining in the South Central quarterfinal games.
