SMN_Cross-CountryTiny Kansas City Christian upsets second-ranked 6A Blue Valley West. Kansas City Christian’s boys soccer team notched a marquis victory Monday night with a come-from-behind victory against the second-ranked team in the state. KCC entered the game against Blue Valley West ranked fifth among Kansas 4-1A teams, and it looked like they would walk away with an unsurprising loss after Blue Valley West got out to a 2-0 lead. But KCC fought back, benefitting from a poorly kicked ball by a Blue Valley West player that resulted in a goal for KCC, and then two more scores from Joseph High and Arthur Beck for a 3-2 victory. The win put KCC at 5-2-1 on the season. The play at Lansing today.
