Free State soccer loses to SM East

Tied at halftime Thursday, Free State’s girls soccer team couldn’t hold off Shawnee Mission East in a 2-1 loss at Shawnee Mission Soccer Complex.

Emma Yackley scored the Firebirds’ lone goal in the first half, assisted by Sydni Beeley. But the Lancers (3-1) scored the game-winning goal with less than 20 minutes left.

Free State (5-2) will travel to Shawnee Mission Northwest on Tuesday.
