The William Chrisman boys soccer team used a balanced scoring attack to help itself improve to 3-5 overall following a 4-0 win over Grandview Monday.
Michael Palomino scored in the fourth minute and Braxton Saye scored 10 minutes later to give the Bears a 2-0 halftime lead.
Adam Hamilton and Joseph Salazar scored goal in the 63rd and 68th minutes, respectively, to seal the non-conference victory. Brandon Kuhlman recorded the shutout in goal.
LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 1, PARK HILL 0: After losing in the third-place game of the KA-MO Tournament, the Broncos bounced back with a close win against Suburban Big Seven foe Park Hill Monday.
In the 2nd minute, Kyle Rock flicked a throw in to Mitch Petersen who drove his shot past the Trojan goalie for the only score of the match.
“After that it was a game that saw both sides have limited chances as the defenses played tough and did not give much space,” said North coach Ryan Kelley said whose team improved to 7-3 overall and 3-1 in the conference. “Park Hill pressured our midfield and that kept us from getting much of our possession going. Their forwards gave us some issues by helping clog the midfield. In goal, Colon Dooley made some critical saves to keep the shutout.”
On Saturday, North fell to Shawnee Mission East 3-1 in the KA-MO Classic Tournament. Kyle Rock scored the lone goal for the Broncos on a penalty kick.
VAN HORN 3, LINCOLN PREP 2: The Falcons continued their winning ways and won their second tournament this season, the Kansas City Cup, thanks to a game-winner from Angel DeAvila in a win over Lincoln Prep Saturday in the championship game.

Van Horn’s Favian Valenzuela scored the game’s first goal to put the Falcons up 1-0. Lincoln Prep scored two to take the lead before Julio Rios made a 25-yard shot to tie it.
