Enjoyable evening of Futsal last night at the Shrine Mosque on St Louis Street. The Springfield Demize put on an exhibition game that included a number of former MSU players with a nice mix of high school players who showed well. In particular, Ozark Tiger keeper Jason Taylor manned one net and helped his Storm team earn the win when he blocked two of the three PK’s taken in an Overtime Shootout. Also standing out were Willis Zirsky (Marshfield), Justin Bowenschulte (Catholic) and Lane Chapman (Kickapoo) who contributed in the close confines and tight control called for in modern futsal. That’s Chapman going up against Andy Cooper, MSU’s center back last Fall.
The weekend of games, which includes 14 teams across three brackets, will wrap up this evening with the championship games. The Open Bracket, which includes an SMS Bears squad, final begins at 4pm with the remaining games completing by 7:45pm this evening.
