LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 2, LEE’S SUMMIT 1: With just under 7 minutes left, Broncos forward Kaylie Rock received a pass from Joanie Westcoat and was able to dribble through the Tigers’ back line and placed her shot past the Lee’s Summit goalkeeper for the game-winner during Thursday’s Suburban Big Seven contest.
Late in the first half Jaymie Coon found Sydney Allen, and she made a run in the back side of the defense and finished her shot for a 1-0 lead. Lee’s Summit tied it in the second half before Rock’s game-winner. North improved to 3-2 overall and 1-0 in the Big Seven.
BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 5, RAYMORE-PECULIAR 2: Brie Severns paced the Jaguars offense with a hat trick in the first half and Logan Abernathy scored two of her own in the second half to lead their team to a Suburban Big Seven win Wednesday over the Panthers.
Abernathy, Kaylee Connors and Morgan Wallace all had one assist each for South (5-2, 2-1).
“The challenge was to find our energy after a double overtime, penalty kick victory over Lee's Summit (Tuesday),” South coach Todd Findley said. “This was our best attacking soccer thus far as we continue to bond and learn to play together as a team. Now, we're starting to feel more balanced with our defense and goalkeeping.”
