The Blue Springs South girls soccer team took a trip to Columbia, Mo., over the weekend and came away with a pair of wins against Columbia Rock Bridge and Columbia Hickman.
Against the Kewpies, the Jaguars came away with a 3-1 win Saturday. Brie Severns scored in the third minute off an assist from Khaliana Garrett and she scored again in the 17th minute off an assist from Kennedi Hooks to make it 2-0. That score held until halftime and Hickman narrowed the gap to 2-1 with a goal in the 45th minute. But the Jaguars (7-1) scored the final goal as Emma Robinson scored on Severns assist.
“After beating Rock Bridge on Friday, we were fortunate to have a deep team and I played 18 players to save our legs and stay fresh,” South coach Todd Findley said. (Goalkeeper) Alaina (Werremeyer) came up with some hue saves and our defense led by Courtney Cook keeps getting stronger every game.”
Against the Bruins, the Jaguars overcame a 2-1 deficit to take a 3-2 victory. Garrett scored the game-winner in the 76th minute off an assist from Braylee Childers. Hooks scored the tying goal in the 75th minute off an assist from Abigail Carino.
Severns scored the team’s other goal off an assist from Logan Abernathy in the 25th minute.
“To see the girls come back from adversity was very exciting,” Findley said.
LIBERTY NORTH 1, LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 0: The Broncos fell to 1-7 overall following a loss to the Eagles Monday.
“We lacked the energy we needed on the night and in the end it cost us,” North coach Ryan Kelley said. “Through the first half we played slow and did not pressure the ball enough.”
