Emily Griffin racked up four goals, all in the first half, as Blue Springs South’s girls soccer team cruised to a 10-0 win at Raytown South Monday.
Sarah Freiermuth notched two goals for the Jaguars, who improved to 3-1 and led 9-0 at halftime. Abbey Widick, Brooke Herald, Mallory Kroencke and Nina Stine also had goals for the Jaguars, with Stine’s coming in the 43rd minute to produce the mercy-rule win.
Griffin now has nine goals on the season. She and Freiermuth had unassisted goals, and eight different Jaguars recorded assists.
“It was a good chance for us to spread the field, work on our passing game and use a lot more of our bench and get them valuable experience,” Jaguars coach Todd Findley said.
“I know they have a tough schedule,” Findley said of the host Cardinals. “I’m good friends with their coach, and I know he’ll have them ready for their conference.”
KANSAS CITY LUTHERAN 7, VAN HORN 0: Van Horn was no match for visiting Kansas City Lutheran.
“They are a solid team,” Van Horn coach Matt Tracy said of Lutheran after the Falcons fell to 2-6.
BLUE VALLEY NORTHWEST 1, LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 0: The Broncos fell 1-0 despite playing with some limitations in the third-place game of the Mo-Kan Challenge at St. Thomas Aquinas. Kara Priest scored the game’s lone goal.
“The girls played hard in a tough match,” North coach Ryan Kelley said. “We had a few girls out and limited due to injuries, so we had girls playing in new and unfamiliar positions. We had some players step up in their roles and give solid performances. Our goalkeeper, Bailey Doerflinger (12 saves), had her best game of the season and had help from other players in the back, namely Addie Merrick.”
Merrick and Laken Tedrow were named to the all-tournament team for North (1-2-2), who lost 3-1 to nationally ranked Aquinas in the semifinals.
