A look back and forward in the soccer calendar. First up, the last week in matches of local interest.
May 15th KC Courage 2-1 Sunflower State FC – WPSL
May 15th Sunflower State FC 1-2 KC Courage – WPSL
A well-played game with two teams led by good coaches. Back-and-forth battle with a tight defense until the end.

Former SKC Academy player Collin Innes with the loan goal for Sunflower State FC at Des Moines.
May 20th Sunflower State FC 3-1 Club Atletico St Louis – NPSL
Sunflower State won at home and was the only team to beat St Louis over the weekend with goals by Bryce Dickerson (23’), Caden McLagan (28’) and Tim Smith (15’)
May 20 Kansas City Sol 2-2 Demize NPSL
Sol took the lead twice with goals by Anthony Rangel (52’) and former SKC Academy player Roman Knox (75’). A red card in the 58th minute on Sol midfielder Sean Brooks made it difficult for Kansas City in their first home game.
May 20th Sunflower State FC 5-0 AFC Columbia – WPSL
May 20th Sporting KC 0-4 St Louis MLS
SKC lost in the first round of the Dead Armadillo Derby, a little embarrassing for SKC and the referees. Tip of the hat to St Louis City SC (Square cuts?), they wanted it bad.
May 21st KC Courage 1-1 Saint Louis Scott Gallagher- WPSL
May 21st SKCII 2(4)-2(5) City 2 = MLS Next Pro
Feilhaber’s squad took the lead and showed how to play a St Louis team in the first half, but they let the “City 2” boys into the game in the second half and eventually fell in the penalties.
Looking ahead. Every local team playing on Memorial Day weekend as well as both U.S. U20 teams.
