Liberty North soccer clinches Suburban Gold conference title

Liberty North during a girls soccer match Tuesday, April 27 at Liberty North High School.

LIBERTY — Liberty North girls soccer closed out the regular season with a 3-0 shutdown of Lee’s Summit West to earn a share of the Suburban Gold conference title with the Titans.

The Hinnenkamp sisters did all the scoring for the Eagles, when sophomore Megan got the team started with a goal midway through the second half before senior Lauren scored two goals in a little more than six minutes of game time.

The Eagles became co-conference champions on the strength of two long winning streaks, first to start the season and then to finish it. Liberty North won six straight games after a three-game losing streak ended the team’s 8-0 start to the year. The team outscored its opponents 20-2 during that stretch.

Liberty North will face Liberty 7 p.m. Monday, May 17 at Liberty North High School. The Blue Jays also enter the matchup with a six-game win streak. The two teams split the regular season matchup with Liberty North winning 2-1 on March 29 and Liberty winning 2-1 in double overtime on April 20.
