Tuesday 4:00pm: MANHATTAN SC AJAX (NYE) vs SPRINGFIELD SC 94/95 I (MO)

A report from the game from a reliable source: We won 2-1!…they were a good team…ranked third in country by GotSoccer. But we are tough to break down. We got goals from Nic Bauer in First half and by Mitch Moncada in second. Evan Garrad had a PK saved. We dominated the first 20 then they bossed the rest of the half. They started strong in second and we looked for a counter and got one. They scored with about 10 to go making for exciting finish. Thanks for the props, Steve! U know we miss you!!!!

Bob, Sara and Emily Jordan, Senior Night 2009 with Frewins

RIP Bob Jordan

Bob, Sara and Emily Jordan, Senior Night 2009 with Frewins

I lost a friend and a mentor on Monday when Bob Jordan passed away due to a heart attack. Bob, and his efforts on behalf of first the Pershing Generals and later the Glendale Falcons, was the impetus for my efforts here. Without his support and assistance, I would not have been able to pull it off. That early effort blossomed into a friendship that now brings tears to my eyes as I consider not only my loss but that of his family and the others he has touched. Goodbye Bob.

Services will be held at Gorman-Scharpf Funeral Home in Springfield. Visitation is this evening, Thursday December 15th, from 6-8pm. The Memorial is Friday at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Robert Jordan Memorial Fund may be made at any Empire Bank location or are accepted at Gorman-Scharpf.

From his obituary

In 2000 Bob agreed to assist with the Pershing Middle School soccer team and coached the JV team. His success led to a 6 year run as head coach where his teams won 5 Varsity City Championships (3boys/2girls). Coaching was his gift and he strove to make certain that players both enjoyed and learned from their athletic experience. In 2001 Bob began to administer the Glendale soccer website, a duty he happily continued to perform long after his children left the program. He was a passionate believer in the benefits of sports, rivalries and traditions and he found great satisfaction in his membership in the local soccer community.

Bob was just one of the many people it takes to make a community prosper. Soccer was not the only one he supported and to each he brought his understated personality and desire to be the best. He succeeded and more importantly, he offered to many the support they needed to do the same. I thank you Bob.
