It’s no secret that the Shawnee Heights boys’ soccer team has been rolling through the United Kansas Conference this year.
The Thunderbirds advanced to 6-0 in United Kansas Conference play after a 3-0 shutout over Piper Tuesday night at the Bettis Family Sports Complex.
The six wins in the conference have all come in a row and Shawnee Heights has looked like a force to be reckoned with.
In the six-game win streak, Heights has shut out four opponents and has outscored its United Kansas Conference foes, 17-3.
Offensively, Shawnee Heights had stellar production from Jordan Garvin and Jack Martin in the win versus Piper. Garvin had two goals while Martin had a goal and an assist. Going into the contest, Piper had only allowed three goals in the previous four games.
“We knew coming into today that Piper was going to be a solid team with a dangerous attack,” Shawnee Heights coach Nic Simons said. “Piper at times made us look silly defensively in the first half. I think we did a good job of adjusting in the second half. Our center backs and outside backs did a great job in particular with making those adjustments.''
