Springfield SC U11, Gateway Classic 2004
Champions U11, Gateway Classic, September 2004. 1st tournament after merger of United, Soccer Select, and Cobras.

An opportunity to look back while looking forward. First, check out this early Springfield SC U11 squad with their Gateway Classic championship trophies from September 2004. This was the first tournament they played as U11’s after the merger of three Springfield teams; Springfield United, Springfield Soccer Select, and Todd McCutcheon’s Cobras. Thanks to Duane Moses for sharing the photo and Debbie Loyd for helping me pull this together. Now I need some more help, let’s complete this roster.

The three Evan’s of the SSC 94 Red Team… Evan Garrad, Evan Craig and Evan Loyd will all be playing next year in the GLVC. Garrard at UMSL, Craig at Rockhust, and Loyd at Bellarmine. They began playing together on a U8 Team, coach by Rich Garrard and Tim Flavin, known as Springfield Soccer. Then on and off for years together on the SSC 94 Red team.

Evan Craig, who joined the #1 ranked Raytown Billy Goat squad after helping Springfield SC win the State Title in 2011. The team lost to SLSG Elite in the 2012 Final but as noted go into this season ranked first in the State, as the defending champion SLSG Elite squad has joined the NPL and will not compete in State Cup this Spring/Summer.

He was named to the Class 1 All-State 1st Team and 1st Team All-Ozarks in 2012 .Evan is also a member of the Region 2 ODP Team. He was named to the Region 2 roster for the 2012 Boys NCAA Interregional which took place in Birmingham Al, in December 2012. He is still using the trophy pictured to hang the many medals he’s earned.

Evan Garrad joins the UMSL Tritons from Glendale and Springfield SC. A captain for the young Falcons, he moved into a central midfield role this year following three years on defense. The Falcons earned a District title before falling to Kickapoo in the Sectional game. Evan was named to the Class 3 Southwest Region 1st team and All-Ozark Conference 1st Team as well.

The Tritons reached the GLVC Championship last year, falling to Rockhurst. I know he’s got some academic chops and UMSL offers a nationally recognized school of optometry that is being considered.

Evan Loyd, goalkeeper for the Greenwood Blue Jays, also earned a State Championship with Craig and Garrad with Springfield SC. He’s since moved to Total Demize SC where he’s been honing his craft, including the recently competed Futsal Regional Tourney. Evan was named to the Class 1 All-State 2nd Team along with Southwest Regional honors.

He joins the Bellarmine Knights, who finished 4th in the GLVC in 2012 on a team with a large St Louis influence. Bellarmine is located in Louisville, KY.

All three players have been named to the 2013 All-Star game roster as well.

Robert Neathery Establishes New Career Goal and Scoring Marks at Nixa

Robert Neathery, Nixa Eagles
Robert Neathery, Nixa Eagles (2010)
UPDATED – With a hat trick in the Eagles 4-0 win over the Ozark Tigers, Robert now owns the career goal-scoring record at Nixa as well as the overall career scoring record. He recorded goals 54-56 in the win, while adding his 46th career assist, extending the scoring record to 158 and counting.

The Eagles next game is Friday in Creve Coeur against St Dominic’s, the #1 ranked small school in St Louis. SGFsoccer will be on hand for that game (weather permitting) so look for live reports, photos and video this weekend.

From September 19 – As reported by the Nixa Soccer website, senior Robert Neathery is now the all time leading scorer with 138 points 48 goals and 42 assists. He surpasses Kaleb Romero’s 136 points. Kaleb went on to play for Northeastern OK A&M (a two year program) and now plays for the Southwest Baptist Bearcats on their inaugural men’s team.

Robert’s ‘coming out party’ was in the District 11 semifinal two years ago. How many of you remember that match at Cooper Stadium? Here’s what I had to say about that game, and Robert.

#2 Glendale Falcons – 5 (PKs)
#3 Nixa Eagles – 4
The Nixa Eagles discovered some mojo tonight and his name is Robert Neathery. Scoring three goals for the Eagles, before going out late in the match with an injury, it appeared the boys team were destined to repeat the heights reached by the girls program in the Spring. It was not to be however as the Falcon’s clawed their way back into the game, equalizing in the 77th minute on sophomore Evan Garrad’s 30 yard blast that found the upper 90.

That was one of the more remarkable playoff games that I can recall in my 10 years of following the game in Southwest Missouri. Check out the video of Evan Garrad’s game-tying goal and a photo gallery from that evening.

Robert and Evan, both senior leaders on their squad, will face off on October 15th at Glendale.
