St Louis Lions Capture Second Shutout Win Over Demize

Springfield DemizeWith three games in eight days, these two teams who know each other so well will be left wondering if if absence might make the heart grow fonder. At least that appears to be the case for the Springfield Demize who fell for the second straight game via a shutout at the hands of the Lions. Saturday it was a 4-0 blanking in St Louis.

Tonight the Demize came out strong with a pair of early chances that boded well for the home squad. It was not meant to be as midway through the half the Lion’s slowly began to gain control, creating chances in the offensive end. The breakthrough came in the 36th minute following a foul just outside the box near the team benches. Tad Kreamalmeyer lined up his shot and laced his ball to the back post where it ended up in the far side netting, Lion’s 1-0.

The second half opened with a flurry of Lion attacks blunted by quality work by Stephen Conner (Drury Panthers) including a stop on a breakaway by Jarius “Juice” Holmes. The Lions broke through in the 67th on a counter-attack, with JJ Bilyeu (Missouri S&T) collecting a ball deep in his own end and finding Dan Meagher headed towards goal near the midline. Meagher stayed in front of his defender before burying his shot after entering the box, hammering it off of Conner’s hands and into the net. Final 2-0 for the Lions.

The teams meet again on Saturday in St Louis. The Demize will get one final shot at their regional rivals on July 9th in Springfield as well.

Des Moines Menace Claim Heartland Conference Crown

Demize LogoWith a 3-2 win at Kansas City last night, the Des Moines Menace claimed 1st place for themselves in the Heartland Conference. The game-winner was scored by Ben Taylor (Drury) on an assist from Garrett Webb. Taylor is now the leading the scorer for the Menace with 13 points.

The win ensured that the Menace would take sole possession of first regardless of the result here in Springfield, where the Demize were hosting the Colorado Real Foxes, the other potential contender. The Demize wrapped up their season with a 0-2 loss to the visitors. Colorado travel to Kansas City in hopes of finishing third now, ahead of the St Louis Lions who travel to Des Moines for the regular season final game. If the Foxes win, they claim second and Thunder Bay finish third. A tie at KC will ensure the 3rd place spot, behind the Chill. St Louis needs to defeat Des Moines, while Colorado loses to KC, to have a chance to go through.

This is the second division crown in the Menace’s 16 seasons. Des Moines makes its ninth postseason appearance, preparing to host the division’s second- and third-place teams, who will face off at Valley Stadium on July 24. The winner of that opening-round match will play the Menace the following night. That includes the 2nd place Thunder Bay Chill and either the Foxes or Lions.

The Demize finish their season with 7 points from 16 games, a record of 2 – 13 – 1, with 10 goals scored and 43 allowed.
