PDL Soccer: Springfield Demize Lose Another Tough One

PDL Soccer: Springfield Demize host St Louis Lions Springfield Demize – 2
St Louis Lions – 3
Despite taking an early lead on a 6th minute goal by Brett Thomas, from Danny Foerster, the Demize once again fell on a late goal by an opponent. The team played a man down from the 21st minute when Ous Senghore was given a second yellow, and the resultant red card ejection, for a hand ball in the box. The Lions captain, Deno Merrick (MO Baptist Head Coach), calmly slotted the PK into the lower left corner to tie the game. The Demize fought back however to take the lead again on Thomas’ second goal of the game, and the season, after Foerster’s run into the box saw his shot parried by a diving keeper but the rebound fell to Thomas. He calmly lifted the ball over the keeper and into the far side netting as the team continued to fight.

The lead held until the 77th minute when the Lion’s leading scorer, Tom Heinemann (Rockford University) took a ball from Mike Utley and broke into the six yard box before sliding his shot to the near post. Heinemann scored again in the 82nd as the Demize pushed forward in an attempt to earn their first win of the season and spoil the Lion’s efforts to remain in the race for the Heartland Division crown. The goals were Heinemann’s 6th and 7th of the season, leading the Lion’s. He was denied on a couple of early attempts as goalkeeper Chris Hanlon fought to keep his team close but it was once again to no avail.

I’ll have video of the game in the next day or two (it’s the holiday’s after all) the final 4 goals and other action from the game.

The Springfield Demize finish the season with an away game at St Louis on Saturday and their final home game of the season is Thursday July 10th when the Des Moines Menace visit. The Menace are in third at the moment, with a pair of games this weekend against the leaders Thunder Bay that will determine their fate. The game next Thursday will feature the return of Drury Panther players Cody Reinberg and Marco Cherisma who are both playing key roles for the Menace.

PDL Soccer: Rapids U23 Get Late Winner vs Demize

PDL Soccer: Springfield Demize host Colorado Rapids U23Colorado Rapids U23 – 3
Springfield Demize – 2
The game opened quickly Saturday night, when the Rapids Jacob Schmoker snuck a quick one past the Demize inside 5 minutes. The Rapids struck again in the 27th minute when Jeremy “JT” Howlan responded to being dispossessed in the offensive end by pursuing the defender and winning the ball back. His quick pass to his fellow front runner created a 1v1 opportunity for Schmoker who buried it to the far side.

The Demize were creating opportunities of their own although only one was on goal versus five for the Rapids in the half. Springfield escaped late in the half when Howlan was taken down in the box for a penalty kick, a shot he pushed wide just before the whistle for the half.

The PK led to the ejection of Eduardo Conde leaving the Demize a man short to start the second but 2-0 leads can be hard to maintain. Springfield came back to tie the game on goals by Israel Bisoni and Danny Foerster, both on assists by Omar Shoucair. Unfortunately, they went down another man when Javier Melon Gil was ejected for conduct. That opened the way for Sam Charles’ goal in the 80th minute, from a scramble in the box, that gave the U23s the win.escort servies
