Pershing Captures Middle School Crown

Pershing Generals celebrate game-winner

The Pershing General’s returned to the winner’s circle this evening, following a three year absence, by defeating the Nixa Eagle’s 2-1. The Eagles opened the scoring in the 8th minute when #43 pounced on a loose ball that was mishandled by the goalkeeper. Unlike the last meeting between these two teams in early May, when Nixa won 3-2 after opening a 3-0 lead, the General’s comeback did not fall short.

Pershing’s first goal was scored Kasey Opfer on a second chance opportunity, when an initial shot hit the upright and came back out into play. That goal in the 21st minute sent the teams to halftime tied and drenched as a cold rain became coming down midway through the half. It was beginning to look like overtime, especially when with 7 minutes remaining Allie’s direct kick from the right side of the penalty area was somehow kept out by Pershing’s keeper.

The decisive blow was struck by Olivia Wolfram in the 68th minute (70 minute games). A diagonal ball from Pershing’s defensive end sent Wolfram towards goal in a foot-race with Nixa’s defense. Two key decisions by Wolfram, first a simple cut back towards goal that turned her defender and created space just outside the box and more importantly, a simple controlled shot to the far post that hit the upright and bounced into the back of the net. A lesson well-learned in patience after I saw her miss 4 or 5 similar opportunities the previous week in the semifinal win over Cherokee. A quick celebration, two minutes of frenzied defending as Nixa pushed for the equalizer and the game was over.

Tonight’s loss was the third straight for the Eagles in the Championship game. The results of that consistent level of play can be seen in their older ‘sisters’ results at Nixa High School. The next step will be finding it in themselves to get past Pershing/Glendale. They accomplished that with Catholic and Kickapoo the past two years. One more larger goal to achieve.

In the JV1 Final that preceded this game, the Bolivar Liberators won 8-0 over the Willard Tigers on six goals scored by #19

Middle School Final Will Feature Nixa vs Pershing

Cherokee vs Pershing, Middle School semifinal
Cherokee vs Pershing, Middle School semifinal
UPDATED – The semifinals of the Spring Varsity Middle School Girls playoffs were held Monday evening.

Cherokee Indians – 0
Pershing Generals – 2
The General’s scored a pair of goals in the first half and they were able to hold the lead in the second half against a spirited Cherokee team that has already learned the importance of beating their East side foes. Should bode well for future meetings as the girls graduate to Kickapoo and Glendale.

Nixa Eagles – 5
Catholic Fightin’ Irish – 1
In as strong an example as you can get regarding the changing of the guard (I’m listening to Steely Dan!), it was Nixa that came out on top in this match.

UPDATE – as Bob Jordan notes in the comments, the loss ends two streaks for Catholic. The first is their 3 year run of Championships, which included beating Nixa in the Final the past two years. It also ends their longer 11 year run of playing in the Middle School Final. Check out the Middle School History Page here.

The Final between Pershing and Nixa will be played Friday night, 7:30 pm at the Greenwood Stadium Field. Nixa won 3-2 over Pershing in early May, scoring 3 in the first half and giving up 2 in the second half but holding on for the win.

Nixa Middle School Sits Atop League

Nixa vs Pershing, Middle School Girls
The Nixa Middle School varsity squad held on for a 3-2 victory last Tuesday night at the Greenwood Stadium Field. A 3 goal lead almost didn’t stand up as the Pershing Generals fought back with a pair of late goals to narrow the gap. It was the first goals the Eagles had given up this season.

Pershing has a fine website where they offered this view

After a sloppy and uninspired first half where the girls found themselves down 3-0 they roared back in the second half only to come up short 3-2. Goals were scored by Teiera Clancy and Kasey Opfer. What would have been the tieing goal by Olivia Wolfram on a breakaway was blocked the Nixa goalie and resulted in a slightly separated shoulder for Olivia. She’s on the mend and plans to be back on the field for the playoffs.

RESULTS as of May 9th
Nixa (6-0-0) GF 29, GA 2 (they gave up two to Pershing)
Pershing (3-3-0) GF -22, GA – 13
Lebanon (2-3-0) GF – 12, GA – 19
Ozark (2-3-1) GF – 7, GA – 15
Catholic (2-3-1) GF – 12, GA – 23
Cherokee (0-4-2) GF – 9, GA – 19

Pershing Generals – 4
Lebanon – 1
Lebanon struck first as the Lady Generals straggled in from the Track Meet but that was all. The Lady Generals rattled off 4 unanswered points to win 4-1. Kennedy Graves scored a goal and Kasy Opfer had a hat trick. The score would have been much higher had it not been for the Lebanon goalkeeper.
