The Truman boys soccer team got the win it needed Tuesday.
After scuffling toward the end of the season with three straight shutout losses, the Patriots picked up an important 2-0 win against host Raytown South.
The two teams will meet again in the first round of district play at 5 p.m. Monday.
“It was sloppy,” Truman coach Bryan Schmitt said. “Their field is very small. We were able to put a couple of moments together, and that’s where we got our goals.”
Josh Felz scored an unassisted goal in the 31st minute to put the Patriots ahead for good. Cameron Wallace added an unassisted goal in the final four minutes as Truman concluded its regular season with a 10-14 record.
The Cardinals (10-12) play Fort Osage Thursday night before meeting Truman again Monday.
VAN HORN 7, HICKMAN MILLS 2: Six more goals for Yacine Hamchaoui helped Van Horn grab another one-sided win Tuesday.
Carlos Borders-Roa, who had an assist, added the other goal for Van Horn (13-10-1) on an assist from Hamchaoui. Ricardo Sanchez assisted on two as all seven goals came in the first half.
“Our reserves didn’t play a great second half, but will have to step up for next year,” Falcons coach Chris Corrie said.
The Falcons will close the regular season at 4:30 p.m. Thursday against Center at Truman High School.
OAK GROVE 4, EXCELSIOR SPRINGS 3: Oak Grove had an apparent win taken away Tuesday and then got it back again.
Pedro Ramirez scored in the third minute of the second overtime, appearing to give Oak Grove a 4-3 win because of the golden goal – or sudden victory – overtime rule.
But the officials told both teams to keep playing, and the host Tigers scored a pair of goals in the final four minutes to grab what they thought was a 5-4 Missouri River Valley Conference West win.
“It’s pretty frustrating, especially knowing that it’s supposed to be golden goal,” Panthers coach Calea Bourne said of the rule formerly referred to sudden death or sudden victory before the decision was reversed today. “But we had so many chances to finish it in regulation.
“But they worked hard for more than 20 minutes. That’s what I like to see. I felt this was our best game of the season.”
Ramirez finished with two goals. Zach Leamon had a goal, and Eric Barker scored in the final minute of regulation to send the game into overtime for the Panthers (7-11-2, 1-3 MRVC West).
Panthers activities director Bob Glasgow called the Missouri State High School Activities Association offices this morning and said the result was overturned, giving the Panthers the win.
Oak Grove won the junior varsity game, 1-0.
STALEY 1, FORT OSAGE 0: A goal in the final minute of the second overtime sank the visiting Indians Tuesday.
Blake Owens scored in the 100th minute, preventing the game from going to a penalty-kick shootout.
“It was a good game to watch,” Indians coach Andrew Fletcher said. “It was an unfortunate loss, and we had our chances, but I’m not disappointed.”
Fort Osage falls to 10-10 with the loss, and will play host to Raytown South Thursday in the regular season finale for both teams.
The Indians won the JV game, 1-0.
