Drury Panthers, 2009 GLVC Champions

Drury Panthers Ranked 9th In Division II Preseason Poll

Drury Panthers, 2009 GLVC Champions
Drury Panthers, 2009 GLVC Champions
The NCAA Division II preseason poll was released Tuesday and the Drury Panther’s were included in the Top 10. The defending GLVC Champions (pictured) are coming off of their most successful season ever, finishing 21-2-0, losing 0-1 to Lewis University in the second round of the NCAA tournament following two straight shutout wins over Northern Kentucky in the GLVC Finals and NCAA 1st Round, avenging the only regular season loss that year.

The team returns a core of seven starters from last years team including the entire defensive corp, starting with senior GK Stephen Conner (Glendale). Conner had 14 shutouts in 2009, giving up only 11 goals overall and was named the GLVC Defensive Player of the Year while also earning 2nd Team All-American status.

His defensive line is a quartet of seniors, led by Ben Taylor (pictured holding the trophy), also a 2nd Team All-American and the second leading returning scorer on the team with 7 goals and 5 assists. Taylor plays outside left and handles many of the teams set pieces. The central defenders will be Blake Wilson and Conner McClellan while Grant Bowden will be the outside right back. This battle tested defensive crew will be relied on to keep the Panther’s close while the team identify’s who will step up to replace the 26 goals, including 11 game-winners, scored by Steve Wilczewski and Andrew Bordelon in 2009.

The midfield will be led by senior Peter Higgins, who will move into the play-making position vacated by Ben Nabers. Nabers was the unsung hero of last years team, with the ability to reliably hold the ball in tight situations before starting the Panther’s attack. Higgin’s is very talented, earning Honorable Mention All-American recognition last year, and one of the hardest workers on the team but is the only returning starter in the midfield. A pair of Springfield products, Danny Collins (Glendale) and Adam Peterson (Kickapoo) played in 20 or more games each last year and will work to earn starting positions this year. Collins scored 3 goals and had 3 assists from his outside position while Peterson scored 2 goals while earning minutes at both midfield and forward. One incoming freshman, Brendan Langford (San Antonio, TX) spent the summer in Springfield playing for the Demize PDL team. Langford showed good technical skills during the minutes he played and should earn playing time but likely won’t be prepared to start.

Micah Whorton returns up top following a highly successful season in 2009, scoring 15 goals and providing 15 assists and 45 points, tops on the team. Whorton earned 3rd Team All-American recognition for his efforts and will be expected to continue his fine form in his senior season. Sr Dave Emnett played in 18 games last year and will challenge for a starting position.

The recruiting class this year is 12 players strong, coming from 4 states, and includes Catholic’s Justin Bowenschulte. A few I think can make an impact this year include this trio of Scott-Gallagher players from St Louis:

Alec Nagel, 5-11 midfielder, Jefferson City High School: Alec was a First Team All-Region, First Team All-State and Central Region MVP selection who’s speed and strength could pair well with Whorton.
Matthew Hutchison, 6-0 forward, CBC High School: Matthew helped CBC and his Scott Gallagher club team both to state championships in 2009. He was named to the First Team All-Conference, All-Metro and All-State squads, and is playing club this spring with the Gallagher Academy.
Michael Yuede, 5-8 midfielder, St. Dominic High School: He was the Class 2 state player of the year after leading his team to a state championship, earning First Team All-State and Second Team All-Metro honors. Yuede also was a number of the ’09 Missouri state champion Scott Gallagher Soccer Club team.

The Panther’s open regular season play on Friday September 3rd at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio before traveling to Chicago for a Sunday September 5th game at Lewis University. Lewis reached the NCAA Final 4 after beating Drury in the 2nd round so this game will be an early season grudge match.

The first home game will be Friday September 17th against Truman State University, the other ranked Missouri team, coming in at 24th in the preseason poll. hot massage dubai

Coming off the most successful season in the program’s history, the Drury men’s soccer Panthers have added a dozen new faces – all from the high school ranks – to begin play in the 2010 campaign.

Thursday Ozarks Regional Soccer Report

Glendale Falcons Outscore Kickapoo ChiefsGlendale Falcons – 4
Kickapoo Chiefs – 1
The Falcon’s set a high bar in the traditional derby this evening, winning easily by comparison to the history of this series. The game-winner was scored in the 6th minute (I subscribe to the goal that establishes a lead that is not relinquished when measuring game-winners) when Brandon Baum buried his 28 yard direct kick into the upper 90 over the outstretched hands of Kickapoo keeper Tyler Moses. Only 4 minutes later freshman Austin Hart scored as he ran onto a loose ball in the 6 yard box, following Patrick Baltz’s run into the box and shot that was parried by a diving keeper.

Kickapoo had opportunities in this game as twice in the next 10 minutes Baum and then Cameron Dugan were called upon to clear balls from behind Glendale keeper Jordan Pitt. A lack of bodies in the right place meant that the only goal the Chiefs would score this evening would come in stoppage time of the 1st half. Substitute Sean Marren first won a 50/50 ball in midfield before slotting a diagonal pass that sent Skyler Russell into the box between a pair of defenders. His shot from 15 yards brought the Chiefs back within 1 entering the 2nd half. Rumor has it that this is the first goal Russell has ever scored against either the Falcon’s or the Pershing Generals.

The Falcon’s extended their lead in the first 10 minutes of the second half. First Baltz once again got into the 6 yard box, this time burying a shot from Alec Martinez’s short pass. Later Dugan buried a shot that came after a scramble in the box, sealing the victory.

Springfield Catholic Fightin' Irish vs Greenwood Blue Jays

Catholic Fightin’ Irish – 1
Greenwood Blue Jays – 0
For a rivalry that’s only two years old, at least on the soccer pitch, this game is quickly establishing itself as a key derby locally. The stands were packed at Cooper Soccer Complex this evening and these two teams went at each other like a pair of middle-weight boxers, working the ball around and picking their moments to attack. As is often the case in situations like this, the goal came from a defensive breakdown when Justin Bowenschulte was given time for not one, but two attempts on the cross into the box. After whiffing on his initial effort, his second effort slipped past the goalkeeper 7 minutes into the second half and changed the complexion of the game.

Update – you can see the goal here

Both teams had opportunities, particularly in the second half as things opened up, and the goalkeepers each made important saves. Hawken Thieme faced down a point blank shot that kept the Jay’s close while his counterpart, Levi Millsap, pushed a ball out in the final 5 minutes of the game that seemed destined to send us to overtime.

There’s been plenty of chatter on this site trying to establish bragging rights in Class 1 District 5. What tonight showed us is it’s way to early to try. Each of these teams will tell you there’s still work to be done. It won’t be until November 5th before we’ll be certain. Unlike in the National League Central division, where certainty now reigns πŸ™‚ Even Eddie Vedder is a fan.

As a side note, I wonder if the crowd at this game matched or exceeded the attendance at the Catholic football game Friday? And in my opinion, the Greenwood support section won the 12th man battle, providing cheerleaders, a much more organized effort and plenty of vocal support tonight.

9/15 Southwest Missouri High School Soccer Report

Springfield Catholic vs Waynesville Tigers

Catholic Fightin’ Irish – 1
Waynesville Tigers – 0
In a game that could have gone either way, the result hinged on a few key plays. The goal was scored by junior Justin Bowenschulte in the 48th minute, as he took Adam Entrup’s square ball from the right side before side-stepping a defender and slotting his shot to the far post. Add sophomore goalkeeper Levi Millsap’s diving save of a shot in the 64th minute that seemed destined for the back of the net, and the difference in the result was found in those few seconds.

The differences between the two teams are significant. Catholic started a lone senior (Cullen Barr) along with a pair of juniors, six sophomores and a freshman central midfielder (Luke Strauss) while Waynesville has 4 seniors, 6 juniors and a lone sophomore (Gehrig Haberstock) starting. Despite these differences, both teams have to feel confident about their opportunities at the District level this year. Waynesville will battle Rolla and Camdenton for supremacy in Class 3 District 10 while Catholic is looking towards New Covenant and Greenwood in Class 1 District 6. I’ll be certain to keep you up-to-date on the progress both teams are certain to make towards there common goal. UPDATE – as Pat Taggart notes, Reid Harbach is a freshman and I missed him in my initial count that only had ten total. The Catholic flyer has Dahlberg listed as a sophomore. So 1, 2, 6, 2 is my current count πŸ™‚

That’s Catholic’s midfield general, sophomore Taylor Arens, winning the head ball in front of junior Ben Moore.

Willard Tigers vs Central BulldogsWillard Tigers – 5
Central Bulldogs – 0
The Bulldogs continue to impress as they worked hard the entire 80 minutes. The Tiger’s were unable to open it up like last year’s game but they have the team speed that allowed them to get down the wings, creating opportunities in the box they were able to capitalize on. Junior Tyler Sevon was the primary recipient, scoring the first three on assists by seniors Parlie Shikany (2) and Marian Lup. Lup and Jonah Nadeau also scored, Josh Lindsey with the shutout and 11 saves against the Bulldogs. Shikany is pictured turning the corner.

New Covenant Warriors – 3

Kyle “Toad” Slagle scored on a PK in the second half to give the Liberators a 2-1 lead that they never relinquished in the battle with their former district foe. The Tigers came into the game undefeated (6-0). Goals by Bradley Stillwagon (2) and Matt Magana.
