BLUE VALLEY NORTHWEST 1, LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 0: Lee’s Summit North couldn’t convert on several strong scoring chances and fell to Blue Valley Northwest in the Mo-Kan Invitational Tuesday at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park.
“We played well but still have struggles around the goal,” Broncos coach Ryan Kelley said. “In the first half we created many chances but did not convert.
“Kaylie Rock has a good opportunity after beating a couple defenders and getting into the box, but her shot went just wide of the far post. Carly Dwyer had a couple looks from outside the box but the Northwest goalkeeper was there for the saves. … In the second half we came out strong from the kickoff and nearly got a goal a couple minutes in. Hallie Martin hit a shot from 30 yards out that the goalkeeper was just able to tip over the crossbar.”
The Broncos, who dropped to 0-4 overall, will play its final tournament game at 9 a.m. Saturday against an opponent to be determined.
