Nina Stine will go down as one of the best girls soccer players in the history of the Blue Springs South program.
She broke the record for most goals in a season last year and she conquered another one when she scored her 61st and 62nd goals, breaking the career goals record previously set by Sharaya Sidebottom in a 5-0 win over Park Hill South Thursday at Larry Stewart Memorial Stadium in the Blue Springs South Invitational.
Blue Valley West won the tournament while the Jaguars finished second.
Stine scored both of her goals in the second half.
Megan Swanson recorded the shutout in goal. Katie and Madi Poertner both scored goals in the first and Abi Carino also had a goal for the Jags (10-4).
“Mallory Kroencke was very dangerous attacking tonight, AnnMarie (Orlando) was our consistent possession midfielder, and Nicole Nelson is awaiting her return from injury to her starting defensive position,” South coach Todd Findley said. “We couldn't do it without them. The younger players got us going tonight.”
South’s junior varsity won 4-0.
WILLIAM CHRISMAN 7, ST. JOSEPH LAFAYETTE 0: Tierra Lopez and Celeste Cummins scored two goals each to help lead the Bears to a 7-0 victory over the Irish Thursday.
Rylee LaRoche, Kayli Perez and Cassie Simpson added a goal each. Cummins added two assists and Abby Baughman had one.
LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 2, BLUE SPRINGS 0: The Broncos bounced back from a tough loss to St. Teresa’s Tuesday to earn a 2-0 shutout against Suburban Big Seven rival Blue Springs Thursday.
North scored in the first 8 minutes when Alexis Mitchell took a pass from Kaylie Rock in the middle of the box, made a cut and curled a shot past Blue Springs goalie Desiree Barajas.
“After that we let up some and got away from what makes us successful.” North coach Ryan Kelley said. “The Wildcats did a great job of being organized defensively and they did not give us many good looks. The Wildcats had a few counter attack opportunities and came close to breaking through our back line on a couple of occasions. In the second half it took us a few minutes to start getting at the goal again.”
Keelie Fothergill scored the team’s second goal in the final minute. Kaylie Rock and Keely Adams both had one assist. Sarah Peters earned the shutout for North (8-3, 3-1).
Blue Springs fell to 3-8 overall and 0-5 in league play.
