  • Lee’s Summit North wrapped up the Suburban Big Six boys soccer title Monday night.
    Hunter Pickering and Cody Hoffman each scored two goals to lead the Broncos to a 4-1 victory at Blue Springs South.
    “Hoffman is one of the best finishers I’ve seen in a long time,” South coach Jon Grice said. “We have to do a better job of responding in critical situations.”
    The Broncos led 2-0 at halftime and were ahead 4-0 when Jacob Gowan’s penalty kick accounted for the Jaguars’ lone goal.
    North, which has won 15 in a row, is 16-2-1 overall and 9-0 in the conference. South dropped to 13-9-1 and 7-2.
    Blue Springs South’s junior varsity claimed a 1-0 win.
    PARK HILL SOUTH 6, TRUMAN 2: The visiting Panthers rushed out to a 4-0 halftime lead on their way to a Suburban Middle Six victory. Truman finished 3-7 in conference play and fell to 4-16 overall.
    “We didn't show up ready to play and it showed first half,” Truman coach Jared Byrne said. “We defended much better in the second and put some offense together to make it a game. Two long-range shots put the game away.”
    Park Hill South got goals in the first 10 minutes from Ryan Dansloy and Dylan Kintner, and Jordan Lindsey and Kintner added goals for the big halftime lead.
    Truman’s Christian Villa scored in the 47th and 57th minutes, with an assist from Landon Rogers on the first tally, to pull the Patriots within 4-2. But South got goals from Josh Hall and Matt Breen down the stretch.
    Alex Villa made 14 saves in goal for the Patriots.
    TRI-CITY CHRISTIAN: Tri-City Christian finished the season 11-7 and took fourth in the Missouri Christian Schools Athletics Association. Forward Seth Sanders (31 goals, 8 assists) and senior goalkeeper Alex Anderson (100 saves, three shutouts) were named first-team all-state, while junior sweeper Conner Hill (3 goals) was a second-team honoree.
    Eighth-grader David Ruiz was the team’s second-leading scorer with 14 goals and four assists. Sophomore Grant Guinn and freshman Alex Ruiz (9 assists) added five goals apiece.
