The Blue Springs South girls soccer team suffered a loss to a surging Lee’s Summit North team last week.
The Jaguars turned the tables Monday, scoring three first-half goals and holding on for a 3-2 victory over the Broncos at Larry Stewart Memorial Stadium.
Brie Severns had a hand in all three goals, scoring the first two and assisting on the eventual game-winner.
“We just didn't have the energy last week and couldn't stop their attack. Tonight was a different story,” Jaguars coach Todd Findley said. “Abi (Carino) played great in goal, and our backs Courtney (Cook), Mady (Geren), Khiara (Cox) and Jayme (Opdahl) played tremendous team defense. In the attack, speed was the key.”
Kaylie Rock put the Broncos on top with a goal in the seventh minute.
Severns tied it in the 18th minute on an assist from Logan Abernathy. Severns then gave South the lead in the 31st minute on an assist from Khaliana Garrett.
Kennedi Hooks finished off a cross from Severns to make it 3-1 just a minute later.
“Our attackers really played with speed and energy tonight,” Findley said after his team improved to 10-4 overall and 3-2 in the Suburban Big Six. “It's fantastic to see how we are playing with speed and energy right now with consecutive wins over Blue Valley West and Lee’s Summit North, both perennial powerhouses.”
Madelyn Robinson scored on a long shot off a pass from Sydney Allen in the 72nd minute to make it 3-2, but the Broncos (5-10, 3-5) couldn’t get the equalizer.
