Blue Springs South’s Nina Stine is picking up right here she left off during her all-state junior campaign.
She has now scored 10 goals in four games and scored two more to help lead the Jaguars to a 4-1 non-conference victory over Kearney Monday.
Stine got things started with goals in the second and eighth minutes to put her team up 2-0 early. Brie Stevens and Kaylee connors picked up the assists on those two goals. Mallory Kroencke then scored during the 13th minute off a Bulldog defender for a 3-0 edge. Kearney scored a first half goal to make it 3-1 before Katie Poertner finished of the scoring with a goal off a Stine corner kick.
Megan Swanson tallied six saves in goal for the Jags (4-0).
“The early start has been working well for us and gives us confidence,” South coach Todd Findley said. “The Nina/Mallory combo is a force for us with their speed and strength. We’re happy to get another nice win early over a quality opponent. Kearney is a fast, aggressive team and certainly will do well in their conference.”
South’s JV team won 4-0.
GRAIN VALLEY 6, MARYVILLE 0: The Eagles had little trouble dispatching the Spoofhounds during a non-conference victory. Freshman Avery Brady led the Eagles (4-2) with two goals. Marissa Schmitt, Rylan Childers, Kailey Boyer and Kailey Larson each had one goal. Childers paced the team with four assists.
Raegan Beeding notched a shutout in goal for Grain Valley.
On Saturday, the Eagles were shutout in a 1-0 loss to Webster Groves Saturday.
“Good game to test ourselves against one of the top class three teams in the state,” Grain Valley coach Tyler Nichol said. “Very even game that could have gone either way. Webster had just beaten defending class 4 state champion St. Teresa's the day before 2-1. These are the types of games that are going to make us better and prepare us for what is coming down the road.”
LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 4, BLUE VALLEY NORTHWEST 0: Alexis Mitchell had two goals and Sarah Peters did the rest by earning a shutout in goal as the Broncos rolled to a victory over Blue Valley Northwest Monday.

“Mallory Lepper did a great job or helping organize our back line and helped Sarah Peters earn her first shutout of the season,” North coach Ryan Kelley said.
