AURORA | The Smoky Hill boys soccer team put the finishing touches on its third straight Centennial League championship Wednesday, but made this one stand out above the others.
The Buffaloes’ 6-0 victory against visiting Overland at The Swamp gave coach Kersten Mullan’s team a perfect 7-0 run through the league and pushed them to 13-2 overall.
Walter Prince scored a pair of goals and had an assist and Zach Clemons, Kevin Del Mazo, John Herrmann and Mitchell Khoshdel — also seniors — also had goals as Smoky Hill rolled on Senior Day.
Senior Andrew Franceschi posted his ninth shutout of the season to beat the Trailblazers, who dropped to 7-6 overall and 2-5 in the Centennial League.
Smoky Hill now awaits its seeding in the upcoming Class 5A playoffs, which is expected to be somewhere in the top five in the 32-team field.
