Tuesday Girls High School Soccer Report

Bolivar Liberators – 4
Marshfield Blue Jays – 0
The Class 2 and Central Ozark Conference foes square off in the Liberators first game of the season. Jodie McFarlen, Sarah Magana, Olivia Buer, and Jordan Halbrooke all scored for the Liberators who improved their record to 1-1 on the young season.

Hillcrest Hornets – 6
Carl Junction Bulldogs – 0
Goals by Alicia Otero (2), Courtney Busby (2), Kamay Freeman and Sarah Rodriguez pushed the Hornets to the win over the small school Bulldogs.

Greenwood Blue Jays – 4
Central Bulldogs -1

West Plains Zizzers – 0
Poplar Bluff Mules – 8

Springfield Catholic – 6
Logan-Rogersville Wildcats – 0
The Wildcats, with a perfect 2-0 lifetime record, play their first ever home game against Catholic. It goes to the Irish however as Shelby Hatz scores three goals and Erin FitzGerald, Emily Ortega, and Bekah Bade scored one each as the Lady Irish win their first ever Central Ozark Conference match

MV-BT Liberty Lady Eagles – 4
Pleasant Hope Pirates – 2
A Class 1 District 6 match up

Nixa Eagles – 1
Parkview Vikings – 0
Nixa’s home opener, also an early D11 match up

Joplin Eagles – 7
Carthage Tigers – 1
The Tigers welcome their Western neighbor and District foe. The Carthage Press has the story: It was almost a one-woman show against Carthage as Joplin’s Kelsey Sanders scored the first three goals of the game and ended with four. In the second half, when Joplin’s Yasmin Ulloa scored, Rogers said, “well, at least No. 13 (Sanders) didn’t score.”

Ozark Tigers – 4
Waynesville Tigers – 0
It was a hat trick for junior forward Alicia Collard (with three goals on three assists from teammate Megan Gunnels) that paved the way to a 4-0 victory for the Ozark Lady Tigers in the varsity match. Sophomore Jackie Wacha volleyed the fourth goal in on a ball served to the back side of the 6-yard box by Collard.

Neosho Wildcats – 6
Joplin McAuley
– 3
From the Neosho Daily News: The Lady Wildcats, sparked by the scoring barrage of goals by Shelby Murray, defeated Joplin McAuley, 6-3, Tuesday at Dover Hill Soccer Complex in Joplin. Neosho came out and set the tone early in the game, scoring four goals 20 minutes into the contest and that allowed the team to give coach Steve Schnackenberg his first win as the head girls soccer coach.

Melanie White also scored for Neosho while Arielle Santillian had 2 goals and Jae Stephens had a goal and an assist for McAuley. Former Southwest All-Star goalie Scott Bartkoski’s little sister Ashley Bartkoski earned the win in goal for the Wildcats.

St James Tigers – 2
Laquey Hornets – 1
Dave Roberts offers an excellent piece on the Class 1 programs early season test: In the district tournament championship game last season the St. James and Laquey squads battled to a near-standoff. The game was tied after regulation and, after two overtimes, the contest was still tied and went into shootouts. Finally, St. James edged Laquey in the shootout to capture its second consecutive district title.
The Laquey Lady Hornets return the major portion of that ‘08 squad this spring and they came to the St. James Tuesday for a rematch.
As expected the two teams again locked up in a tight one. As it turned out all the scoring came in the first half, and sophomore forward Amanda White ended up scoring the game-winner on a direct kick with just seconds left in the first half.

This Week In Ozarks Soccer

2010 WC LogoThe US Men’s team continues their pursuit of a place in World Cup 2010, facing off against Trinidad and Tobago in Nashville on Wednesday, April 1st. The game is being broadcast on ESPN2 at 6:30 pm. I’ll be at Quincy Magoo’s at 900 E Battlefield for the game, feel free to come out and join me. Hopefully the result, and the quality of the game, will be better than what was exhibited Saturday in El Salvador.

I’m still in St Louis, meeting with a new client Monday. Tuesday I’ll be lobbying in Jefferson City, in my role as President of the Missouri Film Alliance of Springfield, promoting the business generation that tax credits offer our local businesses. If you’re a fan of independent films, or a business interested in learning about how to use video in sales and marketing, check out the website I’ve created and sign up for our newsletter.

I may have an opportunity to cover the Jeff City Jays game on Tuesday, as they host the Camdenton Lakers. I’m hearing some very positive things about the Jays, who are now part of District 10 with Camdenton, Rolla and Lebanon. Based upon early results, that District is beginning to look like a real dogfight which will make this a key early match up.

Thursday marks the start of the Christian County Tournament, jointly hosted by Ozark and Nixa High School. A very large slate of games through Saturday day that will get my attention. I’ll have more details later this week and there will be game reports, photos and video interviews to offer.

Coca-Cola Cup Logo Friday will bring the 4th anniversary of this website and I’ll be celebrating by covering the Kickapoo vs Catholic game, the first game covered by and a regular stop for many fans in the region due to it’s competitive nature. The Greenwood Blue Jays will be hosting their Classic on Saturday, which includes Carthage and two other teams I’m still trying to identify. More on that to come.

Time to also gear up and be kind to the soccer tourists who will be visiting Springfield. Lake Country Soccer is hosting the 9th Annual Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Cup at the facilities on the Eastside and we’ll have a large crowd in town. If you have a team participating (Boys U9 up to U18, and girls U9 up to U14) let me know the schedules so I can try and make it out for a game or two. Hopefully the weather will cooperate better than it did here in St Louis where I’m aware of teams who didn’t play a single game.

drury-logo-miniAh, and for the fan of the college game, the Drury Panthers will be playing several games on Saturday at Harrison Stadium. The Women have the Central Missouri State Mules and the Missouri S&T Miner’s visiting for a pair of games while the men will be hosting Mid-America Nazarene which includes Matthew Gow (Lebanon/Springfield Demize). There will be a second team announced as well.

The Missouri State Lady Bears are traveling this week for a pair of games at Oklahoma State while the Men will be in St Louis to take on the SLU Billikens. Both teams are playing on girls in karachi

Lady Pirates Win Their First Game

Good news from Conway Arkansas where the Branson Pirates were participating in the Wampus Cat Invitational. I’ll let Coach Brenner offer the play-by-play:

Logan-Rogersville Wildcats Win OT Thriller at Branson PiratesThe Lady Pirates broke through in the second match of the inaugural season winning 3-1 over Van Buren, Arkansas. Playing in the opening round of the Wampus Cat Invitational in Conway, AR the Lady Pirates scored early and controlled play throughout the match. Neva Raschel, #13, scored her team-leading 4th goal 2 minutes into the match and then assisted on the eventual game winner 4 minutes later. Her cross in the 7th minute found Emily Joplin, #10, open in front of the goal and the senior captain made the most of the opportunity. That ended the first half scoring but not the dominate play. Coming out of half time the Pirates gave up a goal in the 44th minute after the defense allowed a Van Buren forward to stand in the area unmarked. That woke the Pirate offense and they moved the ball well feeding a ball through to Raschel in the 50th minute for the final tally. The Ladies have little time to celebrate with two matches tomorrow (vs host Conway and a team from Oklahoma). “I am very proud of these ladies, everyone had a part in this win and they continue to improve everyday.”

The second day of the Wampus Cat Invitational was not as kind to the Lady Pirates. Playing in the cold they fell to the host Conway 0-4 in their first match. The second match against PC North from Oklahoma was just as hard as the Lady Pirates lost 1-7. There were several bright spots in the young season as Kate Fulton slotted home a loose ball mid way through the second half against PC North to tally her second goal of the season. What we saw this weekend really will help us prepare to play the other COC big schools and gave us valuable insight into what it will take to be successful this season. Although the ladies were cold by the end of the day they were upbeat and came away with a new respect for themselves as soccer players. The future of Branson soccer is definitely brighter after these three matches.escort servce
