PASL: Springfield Demize Host KC Kings Sunday

The defending Midwest Division Champion KC Kings visit Springfield Sunday to play the Demize. The home boys will have returned from a late game on Saturday in Springfield, IL against the Spirit. UPDATE – the Demize win 5-4 in IL. That won’t make their chances any easier as they hope to narrow the distance between the current front-runners and our second place squad.

Game time Sunday – 2:00 pm
Location – Lake Country Soccer Dome
I’ll see you there!

PASL Premier: KC Kings at Springfield Demize What a show today. The Demize, a first year team, faced off against the defending Divsion champions and lost 8-2 or something like that. It was a fun game, as the Demize worked hard to stay with their opponents but even a long-time Demize player commented to me on what a quality opponent they were facing. It was a great lesson for anyone watching today’s game, and hopefully for the Demize.

There are 3 players that seem to have an understanding of how to use the boards and passing angles that are available (Emnet, Gow and Temple) but when Taylor Stacy is running square with Adam Peterson on a 2 v 1 break and he attempts a square pass rather than putting the ball off of the end boards, allowing Adam to run directly onto a ball, then you know there is some work that needs to be done acclimating the team to the indoor game.

The Kings team included Nick King (#6) who is listed as a member of the US National Arena Soccer Team and he showed why, his last goal coming when he received a ball moving left to right, flipped it up slightly and blasted a ball into the upper right hand corner before the defense had a chance to react. Lot’s of nice goals from the Kings as they moved in circles and looked like Duke running the option offense. It was also good to see Brett Thomas continuing his recovery from knee problems, creating a goal for himself this afternoon off of a short-handed situation.

One last chance to see the Demize, on Valentine’s Day at 7:00 pm. See you there!

Pulaski County FC

Just speculation at this point but the Waynesville Daily Guide had a recent article describing steps being taken by a local group that is interested in increasing the opportunities for competitive soccer in the community:

On Jan. 21, Moore and David Lowe presented the Community Recreation Board with their proposal to take Pulaski County soccer into the next phase.
“Basically, we want to start a competitive soccer club,” Moore told the board, citing the team’s growth over the years and sharing that there are players from other cities on the team.

While those teams are currently recreational, Moore said if a competitive team is formed, then those players could have the potential for playing both recreational and competitive.

Moore and Lowe shared that the group currently has three choices before them: To go on as they have been, establish a club under the Missouri Youth Soccer Association and work through the local area for field space, or the third, which Moore said he thinks is the best option.

“I think the best thing to do would be to have a competitive club that’s part of the OMSF,” he said.

We’ve had our share of experiences in the growth of club soccer locally. What would you recommend Pulaski County, and the Ozark Mountain Soccer group do?

Total Shriner Futsal Classic Champions Announced

I’m afraid I was at home sick most of last week so I was unable to get out the the Total Demize SC Futsal classic held at the Shrine. Sam Blair, Marketing Director, is filling the gap for me however.

The Shrine Mosque was filled with non-stop futsal action again this year with 32 teams competing in 6 different divisions. After over 33 hours of intense futsal, the six divisions finally crowned their champions.

In the Exhibition Youth division, the Total Demize U8 boys took first place. The Total Demize U12 boys swept the Boys Youth division winning all three games convincingly. In the Girls Youth division, the Magic Soccer U12 girls took the crown in their first ever Futsal tournament. The Intermediate division saw the Total Demize 2012 U13 boys walk away with the championship. They will now be competing in the Super F Futsal tournament in Shawnee, KS. The TDSC U16 girls took the High School division and will also be looking to the Super F National Championship on February 13th, 14th and 15th. The Total Demize Prodigy U16 girls posted a winning record in the Super F league, finishing with a 4-3-1 record.

The Men’s Division saw many exciting high school and college players playing various styles of Fustal. The crown went to Wu Tang FC, which featured past Demize PDL player Ryan Hambach and present PASL players Andrew Vorce, Daniel Ortega and Micheal Gow.

The feature match of the tournament saw the Springfield Demize battle the Rogers State University Hillcats. The Demize were scored on first in the early stages of the match, but once the Demize started clicking there was no stopping them. They stormed back scoring 6 unanswered goals, beating the Hillcats 6-1.

Brett Thomas, back from Oklahoma for the weekend, scored two goals and had two assists and will be joining the Demize PASL team on February 1st when the Demize take on the Kansas City Kings at Lake Country Soccer Dome at 2:00pm.

Stephen Gorton, the Head Coach of the GCCC Broncbuster’s Soccer team, also came down for the weekend and played for the Demize versus the Hillcats. He brought a few of the Miami, FL native Broncobuster team members who originally hail from Argentina, including Mario Ojeda who has recently signed with the Harrisburg City Islanders in the United Soccer League’s 2nd Division and Alexis Dominguez who is a current MLS prospect, to compete in the tournament and they certainly turned some heads.

The Total Shriner Futsal Classic proved to be a huge success and plans to bring even more exciting futsal action to its participants in 2010.
