    “It was another solid performance,” Fort Osage coach Andrew Fletcher said. “We created a lot of scoring chances, and Summey had another good game in goal.”

Platte County pulled within 2-1 by halftime, but Kai Miller put Blue Springs (4-6) back up by two early in the second half when Brandon Shipman’s long-range shot was mishandled.
