Perfect no more.
Blue Springs South's undefeated season came to a screeching halt Friday night. Its crosstown rival served as the culprit.
Blue Springs upended the Jaguars 67-59 on South's home floor Friday, utilizing a 25-point effort from senior point guard Taysean Goodwin.
Goodwin scored 23 of his 25 in the second half, including a string of seven straight points that countered Blue Springs South's 8-0 run, which had cut the lead to two points.
Never miss a local story.
"He was unbelievable," Blue Springs coach Adam Jones said. "He had a huge game."

"It was working, so we rode it out until the end," Jones said. "They busted their tails. I was really proud of the way they defended."
