Because the Mexico varsity boys soccer team didn't play Father Tolton during the regular season, it was never going to know exactly what this squad had going on no matter how much film it watched prior to its Class 2, District 9, head-to-head matchup on Monday in Ashland.

Considering the Bulldogs also sported a record of 4-17 overall for 2017 against 14-8 overall for Father Tolton and the teams potential outcome was getting gloomier by the moment. Mexico didn't go down without a fight, though, before eventually getting eliminated from the Missouri State High School Athletic Association high school championship tournament 6-1.

In the other initial round contest of this district on Oct. 16 Fulton, 3-19 overall, lost to Southern Boone, 14-7-2 overall, 4-0. Father Tolton and Southern Boone were next slated to play for the title on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
