Playing in Saturday’s championship game of the MoKan Invitational tournament at St. Thomas Aquinas (Kan.), the Lee’s Summit North’s girls soccer team yielded an early goal and couldn’t recover in a 3-0 loss to Blue Valley Northwest, ranked No. 22 in the TopDrawerSoccer.com poll.
North (5-1) had beaten third-ranked Aquinas in Wednesday’s semifinals.
“Blue Valley Northwest scored less than five minutes into the match,” LSN coach Ryan Kelley said. “We had a few opportunities through the first half with the wind at our back but were unable to find the back of the net.”
Addie Merrick, Keelie Fothergill and Madison Chapman made the all-tournament team for the Broncos.
LEE’S SUMMIT 4, FORT OSAGE 0: A dogged Fort Osage squad couldn’t hold up against the visiting Tigers in Monday’s non-league contest.
“Much better effort tonight from the team as a group,” Fort Osage coach Andrew Fletcher said after his team fell to 3-4. “We were able to cause Lee’s Summit some problems and defended well, only losing to some really nice goals from the Tigers.”
RAYMORE-PECULAR 8, TRUMAN 0: The host Patriots trailed just 2-0 at halftime before the Panthers erupted in the second half Monday at Bingham Middle School.
Kennady Orlick and Emily Johnson had two goals apiece for Ray-Pec (3-3), each getting one in the first half. Johnson’s goal in the 39th made it 2-0 at halftime.
“We played well in the first half but allowed two goals that we shouldn't have,” Truman coach Jared Byrne said. “We completely shut down in the second half, though, and that was disappointing. We have to learn from this quickly.”
Truman (1-4) did not have a shot on goal or a corner kick. Kirstin Huber and Jessica Curtis combined to make 11 saves.
