SMITHVILLE — Smithville soccer won its second straight game and fourth in six games with its 1-0 victory over Platte County Thursday, Oct. 15 at Platte County High School.

Senior Wes Pryor scored the winning goal in the second half as Smithville (8-8-3, 5-3 Suburban Blue) pitched its fifth shutout of the season. Platte County (7-4, 7-2 SB) had not lost a conference matchup since its 3-1 loss to Raytown South back on Sept. 8. The Warriors also earned some revenge against a Pirates team that beat them in the district final last season.

The Warriors beat Ruskin 2-1 on the road Oct. 13 to recover after losing two games in a row against Raytown South and Kearney. Before that, the team had rattled off four straight wins in strong fashion.

Smithville will go on the road to face Ruskin 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20 before the Warriors turn around to host Grandview 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22 at Smithville High School.
