The Truman girls soccer team got goals from three different players in a victory over Suburban Big Six Conference for Raytown Tuesday.
Charley Burton, Merci Lessard and Alize Becerra each scored a goal to help the Patriots improve to 6-7 overall and 3-4 in the conference.
“We did well in both halves, even with a strong wind,” Truman coach Manny Tovar said.
BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 2, RAYMORE-PECULIAR 0: All season long, Jaguars coach Todd Findley said goalkeeper Alaina Werremeyer and forward Brie Severns are the bread and butter of his team.
The duo proved that once again Tuesday in a Suburban Big Seven win over the Panthers.
Werremeyer recorded her seventh shutout, while Severns scored both of South’s goals.
“Ray-Pec is an aggressive, hard working team, so to get them 2-0 at their place is a nice compliment,” said South coach Todd Findley, whose team improved to 11-6 overall and 5-3 in the conference. “Alaina was spectacular in goal. Alaina and Brie have done that all year, one saving goals and the other scoring them. Combine that with some great defense and a hard working midfield, we have a good formula going for us. The work rate and positive team play continue to be the key.”
KANSAS CITY CHRISTIAN 9, VAN HORN 0: Van Horn was unable to overcome a 4-0 halftime deficit in a Crossroads Conference loss Tuesday at the Olathe District Activities Center.
The Falcons fell to 9-9 overall with the conference loss to Kansas City Christian Tuesday.
WILLIAM CHRISMAN 2, OAK PARK 0: William Chrisman scored a pair of goals in less than a minute for a conference win Tuesday.
Celeste Cummins scored a goal off an assist from Adreal Bell and that was enough to help the Bears improve to 10-7 overall and 4-4 in the Suburban Middle Six Conference with a win against the Oakies Tuesday. Katie Laughlin added a goal less than a minute later to help put it out of reach.
LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 2, BLUE SPRINGS 0: Lee’s Summit North coach Ryan Kelley said he didn’t like the way his team started during Monday’s Suburban Big Seven matchup with Blue Springs.
But thanks to the effort of the Broncos back line and goalkeeper Madison Baker, North earned a victory against the Wildcats.
The game was tied at 0 going into halftime. Five minutes into the second half, Emma Willard made a direct free kick from 40 yards out that went over the head of Blue Springs keeper Desiree Barajas for a 1-0 North lead.
With about 22 minutes left in the game, Halle Hill tucked a shot into the lower corner following an assist Kaylie Rock for the second goal.
“The first half was another slow start for us tonight,” said North coach Ryan Kelley, whose team improved to 6-9 and 4-5 in the Big Seven. “We seemed out of sync and lacked a composure to get our style of play going. In the first half, Blue Springs had the better attacks and played with much more energy and desire to get to goal than we did. They were able to get behind our back line a few times but never really threatened the goal. Our back line of Katie Shatzer, Hailey Englund, Emma Willard and Harper Manley did a good job of recovering and keeping the Wildcats away from the goal. In the net Madison Baker was confident coming off her line to clean up longer passes for our defense.”
The Wildcats fell to 3-11 overall and 0-8 in the Big Seven.
