A successful penalty kick late in the game is all Blue Valley North High School needed to defeat the Gardner Edgerton High School soccer squad 1-0 the regular season soccer finale last week.
“We played outstanding defense again and created good scoring opportunities, but just could not score,” said GEHS Coach Andy Weber.
The game remained scoreless until North made a controversial penalty kick.
Now 8-8, GEHS begins regional play this week.
The Blazers regional roster includes seniors T.J. Gaither, Alex Garcia, Jordan Peralez, Anthony Smartt, Dakota Steuber, Kilmer Torres, and Ashton Vega. Sophomores on the squad are Dylan Mars, Austyn Hatton, Tanner Peine, Zach Mitchell, Tanner Richardson, and Aaron Van Vleet. Rounding out the squad is freshman Tavita Ploetz.
