Jacob Williams is emerging as one of the best goalkeepers in the Eastern Jackson County area.
He proved that Thursday when he notched a shutout in goal to help the Blue Springs boys soccer team improve to 6-8 overall after a 1-0 win against Pembroke Hill.
The Wildcats got their lone goal on a header by Muhammad Refaat off a long throw in from Adam Fencl.
“That was a beauty of a goal,” Blue Springs coach Michael Palermo said. “It was a back-and-forth game with the Wildcats playing well on both sides of the ball.”
On Wednesday, the Wildcats couldn’t muster any offense as they fell 3-1 in the Suburban Big Six after a loss to the Raymore-Peculiar Panthers.
WILLIAM CHRISMAN 2, RUSKIN 0: The Bears had two different players score a goal and that’s all they needed in a Suburban Middle Seven Conference win against the host Eagles Thursday.
Braxton Saye scored a goal in the 17th minute and Marco Sagastume scored in the 75th minute. Brandon Kuhlman and Javier Merino combined for the shutout in goal.
BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 2, PARK HILL 1: Blue Springs South scored a goal early in the second half and made it stand up for a Suburban Big Six win Thursday.
Dylan Shuker scored on an assist from Brett Vaughn in the 49th minute to put the Jaguars ahead. Thomas Froholt scored in the fifth minute to put the Jaguars ahead, but the Trojans tied it in the 44th minute.
TRUMAN 1, ST. JOSEPH CENTRAL 0: Johnny Contreras scored a goal in the 65th minute and that’s all the Patriots needed to improve to 4-6 overall and 1-4 in the Suburban Large Seven in a win Wednesday.
