District 12 semifinal - KHS vs NeoshoIt’s official folks. The St. Louis Soccer Club U15 girls, including Kickapoo midfield Chealsey Russell, shown in a District semifinal match at left, won the national championship for their age group today.

Update from National Championship site – For the Under-15 Girls of the St. Louis Soccer Club, Amelia Beger jumped higher than the pack for the header in the 80th minute to claim the Kristine Lilly Cup over PDA Power, 1:0.

From the bulletin board at STLsoccer.net is the following information:

Congratulations to the STLSC U15 girls for winning the USYSA National Championship 1-0 vs PDA Power from New Jersey. Blake Miller scored the winning goal in the first over time period to give STLSC their 14th National title. Blake won the Golden Boot award which is given to the most valuable player in the tournament. Claire Levercheck won the goal keeper of the tournament award. The team is coached by Blakes father Gary Miller.

Tournament results show three Midwestern teams winning championships with the IL Eclipse Select U17 girls and IL Sockers FC U19 boys joining the Missouri girls. Of the 12 championships contested, five were won by California teams, two by Texas teams and two by MA teams (you try and spell that on a Sunday evening).

Soccer Blogging

For anyone out there who has wondered how this site is set up and kept up-to-date, I’d like to invite you to attend a session I am presenting at the Springfield – Greene County Library Center on South Campbell Monday evening at 7pm. I am a member of the Ozarks Genealogical Society and the topic for the monthly Computer Special Interest Group is “How to use Weblogs (Blogs) in Genealogy”. The subtitle could be “How Ole created SGFsoccer.com” and I will be presenting information on the tools that I use and the sites I have set up for my family and for OGS.

The meeting begins at 7pm and is held in one of the community rooms on the left when you enter the Library. Come join us and learn more about blogging and how you can set up a similar site for you high school or club team. Special note – you can do it all for free 🙂scort service

MLS All-Star Game Today at 3:30pm

Don’t forget about today’s match featuring the MLS All-Stars taking on Fulham FC of the English Premier League, live on ABC beginning at 2:30 pm. The Fulham squad features two American MNT players in Brian McBride and Carlos Bocanegra. The game is being played in Columbus where Brian was a member of the Crew for eight years. I’ve been a big fan since his days at SLU and he made an impact on Columbus as well where Thursday was Brian McBride Day!escorts dubai independent

PDL Update

The Des Moines Menace are hosting the Central Conference Championships this weekend, a four team round robin featuring the Boulder Rapid Reserves, Chicago Fire Reserves and the Michigan Bucks as well as the host team. The Michigan Bucks defeated the Rapid Reserves 4-1 in OT while the Menace shut out the Fire Reserve 3-0, leading to tonight’s matchup in the final. The winner goes to the Final Four next weekend.

The games should be good preparation for the Menace who also face the KC Wizards on Wednesday evening as the final PDL team standing in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup tournament. KC are the defending champions and enter the tournament with this match having earned a bye until now. best escort site

US vs Mexico September 3rd

The US Men’s team takes on Mexico in a World Cup Qualifier on September 3rd. Two days remain in a special ticket sale under an early availability program open to US Soccer members. The game is in Columbus, OH and I highly recommend it as a location for a soccer match. The match will be held at the Columbus Crew’s home stadium which was the first site built for soccer in the MLS. I got to see Sweden take on Germany in the Women’s World Cup two years ago and while the drive was a little bit long (9 hours at my old man pace) it was easy getting in and out and hotel prices are lower then in the larger cities. My buddy and I ended up hanging out with a coed team that was doing some partying in the parking lot early and late. If you are looking for a final trip before the Fall season gets completely out of control, consider this as a great choice!escorts on call
