Physical? Check. Insurance Form? Check? High School Practice – Only A Week Away?!!

If you haven’t been keeping an eye on the countdown timer, than Monday August 10th will sneak up fast. A week from Monday High School sports will begin in the state. If your son, or daughter, are playing Fall sports there are a few items that need to be in place. You’ve got next week to complete them so your child can be on the pitch from the beginning.

1. A completed physical form.
2. A completed proof of insurance form.
3. Completed citizenship form.

By the way, the video is from Thursday nights 8v8 Kick Around at Kickapoo High School. The Chiefs, Falcons and Ozark Tigers were playing a series of 30 minute games with each school fielding a pair of teams. Two of the Chief’s 3 seniors this year are shown, with Skyler Russell bringing the ball down the left side with a square ball to Ian Kennedy who’s one-timer is blocked by senior Jordan Pitt, with the goal line save coming from senior Brandon Baum. Feels like mid-season already!hotel room sex

Missouri State Bears Change Game Times Due To Lighting Failure

bearhead_125.jpgThe Missouri State Bears have announced that while all Fall sports that play in Plaster Stadium, including Men’s and Women’s Soccer, will remain at the Stadium the start times have been changed to address the loss of four lighting standards. The University had a light pole, located at the northwest corner, fall unexpectedly on July 14. No one was injured. Following a review by a structural engineering firm, the University decided to remove the remaining three poles as a safety precaution.

Here are the games that are affected. Oh, and they hope to have the lights replaced by October 17th for the Ozarko Band Contest, so games after that date are currently shown at their original times.

How Was Your Weekend?


I ask that question as a prelude to sharing Andy Wilkinson’s weekend with you from last week. As you can see in the photos, he covered a lot of bases. He started his road trip with a drive from Joplin up to Kansas City to enjoy the KC Wizards game against the LA Galaxy on Saturday. From there he headed to St Louis where he participated in the St Louis Athletica game against the FC Gold Pride. The Women’s Professional Soccer match was held at the A-B Soccer Complex, was broadcast live on Fox Soccer Channel and included Andy as AR2.

Congrats to one of our region’s up-and-coming referee’s, as Andy is actively pursuing his National license. Thanks for the photos Andy. Oh, and to address any questions… That’s Jack Jewsbury in the first, Beckham in the second, Andy’s on the far left in the third (not the little girl, the ref!) and that’s Hope Solo bending over in front of Andy as he check’s the nets prior to the start of the game. Apparently his buddies were a bit enamored of Hope and so most of his photos are of the US goalkeeper!

Missouri State Bears Men’s Soccer Update

Three members of Missouri State men’s soccer team played in the U19 Boy’s title match Sunday at the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship in Lancaster, Mass. Gerard Barbero, III, (So., Marietta, Ga.), Cameron Miller (So., Woodstock, Ga.) and Thomas Vania (So., Kennesaw, Ga.) are members of the North Atlanta Soccer Association (NASA) U-19 squad that lost to the Baltimore Bays 2-0 after earlier tying them 0-0 in the opening game at the Championship.

Barbero, a midfielder, played in 19 matches for the Bears a season ago, scoring one goal and assisting on two others. Miller, also a midfielder, got on the pitch in 17 matches, starting twice for the Bears. Vania, a defender for the Bears, played in 20 of 22 matches a season ago and received the starting nod from head coach Jon Leamy 11 times.

Ryan Hennessy (North Kansas City HS/KC Pace) and Brian Wurst (Park Hill South/KC Pace/Drake) finished the regular season leading the KC Brass in games played and played the full 90 minutes on defense in the KC Brass’ 2-1 win over Real Colorado Foxes on July 18, 2009 at William Jewell College.dubai escort couples
