The Fort Osage nine-game boys soccer winning streak ended in dramatic fashion.
After two 10-minute overtimes, host Staley outpaced Fort Osage 5-4 in a shootout to post a key 2-1 Suburban Middle Seven victory Thursday night. The teams share first place in the conference at 5-1.
Career scoring leader Richmond Forbis scored the only Fort Osage (9-3) goal, the 97th of his career.
“It couldn’t happen to a nicer young man,” Fort Osage coach Andrew Fletcher said of Forbis' career record set earlier in the week. “I am really proud of him and how he has handled himself and helped the soccer program at Fort Osage.”
Fletcher said it was a terrific game with two good teams.
“I enjoyed the game,” he said, but not the loss.
Staley took the junior varsity game 2-0.
