After a loss to open the season, the Truman boys soccer team has found itself on quite a roll.
The Patriots won their fifth straight game, a 3-0 victory over the Liberty North Eagles in their Suburban Big Six Conference opener Wednesday night.
Korby Ring scored to put the Patriots ahead 1-0 before Austin Montoya scored off a Raul Romero corner kick. Andre Guzman added the final goal for Truman, which improved to 5-1 overall and 1-0 in league play.
OLATHE NORTH 2, LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 0: The Lee's Summit North offense was unable to muster a goal as it came up short in a loss to Olathe South Wednesday in the semifinals of the KA-MO Classic tournament at Blue Valley North.
The Broncos (6-2) got some scoring chances early but were unable to convert. That included a cross from Mitchell Petersen that found Brennon Larsen, whose shot went just wide of the goal.
“After that the Falcons were able to start containing our penetrating passes and we struggled to solve their defense,” North coach Ryan Kelley said. “In the second half we started to generate better possession and started to create some attack.”
OAK GROVE 7, SAVANNAH 1: The Panthers opened the Kansas City Cup tournament with a win against Savannah Tuesday in pool play.

The Panthers outshot the Savages 17-2.
"That was a well-rounded game for us,” said Oak Grove coach Zach Herzig, whose team improved to 5-3 overall. "We looked good on defense and offense. Gael Perez was a standout. It looks like we have some continuing momentum from last week.”
