  • The Grain Valley girls soccer team has advanced to the championship of the Summit Christian Academy’s SCA Cup tournament.
    Samantha Berg and Kali Carson each posted two goals and an assist and Reighan Childers scored twice as the Eagles posted a 7-1 victory over O’Hara Tuesday to win Pool B.
    Nathalia Barr scored the other goal, Sianna Aumua and Morgan Clark each contributed two assists and Kiley Wagener added an assist as the Eagles improved to 2-0 in the tournament and 3-1 overall.
    Childers scored the first two goals to spark the Eagles to a 4-1 halftime lead. The defense held O’Hara to only five shots on goal.
    “This is the first time that Grain Valley has beaten O’Hara,” Eagles coach Aleana Balistreri said. “(We) took advantage of some of their defensive mistakes and we created goal-scoring opportunities in front of their goal. The girls are excited to play in the championship game on Friday.”
    FORT OSAGE 3, RAYTOWN SOUTH 0: Leigh-Anne Bartlett scored all three goals and goalkeeper Lydia Calderon didn’t have to make a save for the shutout as Fort Osage (3-1) blanked visiting Raytown South Tuesday.
    “We did well,” Fort Osage coach Andrew Fletcher said. “We dominated the game and kept the ball well. We managed to score three second-half goals.”
    Fort Osage posted a 4-0 junior varsity victory.
    PARK HILL 3, TRUMAN 0: The Suburban Middle Six opener didn’t go well for host Truman.
    Two first-half goals were all Park Hill needed to post the 3-0 victory Tuesday. Truman (1-1) managed no shots on goal against a tough Park Hill defense.
    “We are a young team, and we are improving each game,” Patriots coach Jared Byrne said. “We played tough and will look to learn from the mistakes we made tonight.”
    Maya Coen made 19 saves for the Patriots.
    RAYTOWN 3, WILLIAM CHRISMAN 2: The visiting Bears suffered a tough Suburban Middle Seven loss to Raytown Tuesday.
    Melody Olvera’s goal in the first minute of the first 10-minute overtime carried the Blue Jays to a 3-2 victory Tuesday.
    “I did a poor job of communicating at the break, which led to the winning goal,” Chrisman coach John Straub said. ”The girls did a great job of coming back from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits.”
    Ciera Perez scored both goals for Chrisman (2-2, 0-2). Jessica Spradley scored the first two Raytown goals.
