The Truman boys soccer team added another win Thursday.
The Patriots made it three victories in their last four games by trouncing host Ruskin 10-0 in a Suburban Middle Six match. The game was stopped with four minutes remaining because of the mercy rule.
Christian Villa posted a hat trick and an assist, Aaron Mendoza had two goals and an assist and Jewlian Cordry scored two goals to power the Patriots (3-13, 3-5).
“We are getting closer to full strength and are looking forward to a big week,” Truman coach Jared Byrne said.
Mario Menjivar, Landon Rogers and Marcus Martinez each added a goal as the Patriots outshot the Eagles 22-1 and scored seven second-half goals to break it open. Goalkeeper Alex Villa made one save to record the shutout.
VAN HORN 1, WINNETONKA 0: Angel Delgado’s unassisted goal in the 76th minute was all Van Horn (8-9-1) needed for the victory.
“It was a nail-biter,” Van Horn coach Greg Millick said. “We scrapped and clawed, got a goal and held on to win. It was a nice result.”
FORT OSAGE 2, RAYTOWN 1: Richmond Forbis scored two second-half goals on assists from C.J. Chavez and Pier Cassiraghi to help visiting Fort Osage (12-4, 7-1) remain alive in the Suburban Middle Seven title chase.
“It was a tough game,” Fort Osage coach Andrew Fletcher said. “Raytown played really well. We struggled at times, but it was nice to get the win.”
Raytown posted a 3-0 junior varsity victory.
PARK HILL 4, BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 1: All of the scoring came in the first half as Park Hill defeated Blue Springs South (11-6-1) in a nonconference game at Park Hill South.
“In the first half we had some unfortunate breaks,” South coach Jon Grice said. “The kids rallied around and scored late and we held them even in the second half. We are looking forward to getting back in conference play.”
Sam Leech scored off a Coby Roark assist for South’s lone goal.
