Springfield SC 96-97 Boys Promoted to MRL Premier Division

Springfield-SC-9697-MRL-Premier-2012
The 96/97 I boys have become the 4th SSC team to gain promotion into the Midwest Regional League (MRL) Premier Division. SSC has garnered Elite status within the 13 state Region with 3 teams in the Premier division next year with the 95/96 girls and 94/95 I boys. Congratulations to the the entire club for the reward and recognition!!

The 96/97 Boys (U15) earned a seed in this years State Cup tournament and are part of Bracket C in the U15 division. They’ll open play on Saturday June 9th at 8:00 am when they take on St Louis Scott Gallagher Black on LCS #04.

The 94/95 Boys (U17) are the Defending State Champions, the third such title earned by Springfield SC. They open play on Saturday with a 4:30 pm game against Lou Fusz Weber on LCS #10.

The 95/96 Girls (U16) are part of one of the most interesting Age Groups and Springfield got good news and bad news in this years draw. The bad news is they are in the same group with the defending champion KCFC Futura squad, a nationally ranked squad that is very talented. The good news is that SSC will not have to play their first game of the tournament against them as they did last year. That was an 0-3 loss followed by a pair of wins that wasn’t enough to get out of the group and into the knockout rounds. They’ll open instead at 8am Saturday against Avalon FC Premier.

If you get out to one girls game this weekend, come out Sunday morning at 8:00 am and cheer the local squad on as they face the defending champs. LCS #15 against KCFC/Futura Academy.top dubai escort

Springfield SC 94/95 at Region 2 Championships

Springfield SC Win Opening Match

Springfield SC 94/95 at Region 2 Championships by JT Adams

Springfield SC – 2
Waukesha Pumas (WI) – 0
A pair of goals in the first half held up for the win in their first Regional game. Goals were scored by Jakob Neidig (Ozark) from Dallas Moses (Catholic) free kick and by Evan Craig (Catholic) from Mitch Moncada’s (Catholic) assist.

The boys will play against Galaxy (IL) on Sunday. Galaxy is the 12th ranked team in Region 2 and they defeated the #5 ranked Everest Black (OH) squad 1-0 this morning. SSC faced the Galaxy May 7th in Muscatine IA. The Galaxy won that game 2-1 enroute to a 1st finish in the Midwest Regional League Premier Blue Division with a 6-1-0 record. Springfield SC finished 3-3-1, finishing 4th. Galaxy’s one loss was to Vardar (MI) in their opening match April 8th. SSC defeated Vardar 2-0 two weeks later at a game in Rockford.

Looking at scenarios (is it ever too early?) would indicate that a tie Sunday and a win over Galaxy could put the boys through to the semifinals. Goal differential would be the key then, a dangerous place but a better alternative then a loss but the same scenario holds true for the Galaxy, a Chicago-area squad that made it to Regionals as a wildcard choice following their 3rd place finish in the MRL.

Molly Brewer and her teammates had a strong opening game. They face off against the MN Thunder squad tomorrow. The Thunder won 1-0 over Cincinnati United (also known as CUSA).

The Springfield Soccer Club hosted the Blue Valley SC (KS) this afternoon at the Greenwood Stadium field at the Cooper Soccer Complex. The final game of the regular season, the local boys needed a win or a tie to ensure they would remain in the top-flight of the Midwest Regional League for a second straight season. They ensured that with a shutout win today.

Springfield SC 94/95 – 1
Blue Valley SC – 0
The game was scoreless at halftime with limited opportunities as the teams played conservatively and controlled. That changed in the second half as both teams came out in a more aggressive attacking mode. SSC came close in the first five minutes when Nic Bauer (pictured) snapped off a quick shot from close range that the keeper was able to push over the crossbar. Soon after, a simple ball to the left side sent Bauer deep into the offensive end where he was able to beat his defender on the endline and move towards the box. As the defenders converged, his square ball was touched and redirected through the six yard box by his teammate ?. As the ball rolled across the face of the goal, all the BVSC GK could do was watch as Andrew Schenk (Nixa 2013) ran onto the ball and buried it at the far post for the game-winner.

The result was not ensured as BVSC pushed forward and were especially dangerous on set pieces but GK Evan Loyd (Greenwood 2013) was up to the challenge as was his defense.

The team, who are ranked 1st in Missouri in their age group, are ranked 21st in Region II. They advance along with the Eclipse Select (IL) who are ranked #4 in Region II and reached Regionals last year, Galaxy Blue (IL), MN Thunder Academy 95 Blue (MN) who were State Champions and Regional Finalists as well as Madison FC Gold (WI) who were State Champions, in the top flight next year.

The final challenge this season will be to take their ranking into the Missouri State Cup, scheduled for June 11-15, and win only the 3rd State Championship for a team from this region. They would join the SSC 90/91 squad that won two titles and included Devon Newport and Graham Basecke (SLU), Ryan Moses (Missouri State) and Ian Kennedy and Ryan Squires (Wm Jewell) among others.

Springfield SC will be holding Tryouts June 20-22 this year.

MRL 9596: Tucker Brown, Springfield SC ((Logan Rogersville 2015) rises high

Springfield SC Hosts Midwest Regional League Games

MRL 9596: Tucker Brown, Springfield SC ((Logan Rogersville 2015) rises high
MRL 9596: Tucker Brown, Springfield SC ((Logan Rogersville 2015) rises high
UPDATED with game reports, photos and video – As the High School season comes to a close, so is the Club season. There are effectively three levels of competition now in the US with the highest level being the US Soccer Development Academies such as the JR Sporting KC program in KC. The next level are Regional Leagues such as the Midwest Regional League that is invitation-only, and has a promotion/relegation model similar to the English Premier League. Springfield SC is represented in the Premier level in the U16 age group and also has several teams that play in the First Division.

Teams that compete in the MRL are eligible to compete in State Cup Tournaments (unlike US Development Academy teams) and the League is seen as the primary method for preparing teams to pursue success in the State Cup – Regional Championship – National Championship competitions.

This weekend the U15 Boys (95/96) will be hosting three teams for their final weekend of games in the MRL 1st Division Blue West group. Here are the current standings. The Top two teams are promoted to the Premier Division next season.

Team | Wins – Losses – Draws | Points
St Louis Scott Gallagher Elite (MO) | 5 – 0 – 2 |17
Campton United Navy (IL) | 4 – 1 – 1 |13 (one game remains)
Springfield SC 95/96 I (MO) | 3 – 0 – 4 | 13
KCFC Celtics 95/96 (KS) | 3 – 4 – 0 | 9
St Louis Scott Gallagher Premier (MO) | 3 – 1 – 3 | 12
KC Legends World Cup 1 (KS) | 1 – 4 – 2 | 5
Kansas City Premier 95/96 Boys (KS) | 1 – 4 – 2 | 5
Inter FC (IL) | 0 – 6 – 0 | 0 (one game remains)

With an opportunity to earn promotion to the Premier Division with a win, the boys took the lead in the 5th minute via a penalty kick. The early game opened up play as Gallagher needed a tie to ensure promotion while SSC needed the win. Midway through the second half, forward Mark Segbers (Vianney 2014) was fouled in the box which led to a tying PK, well taken by Jacob Erwin (St Francis Borgia 2014). More important was when on the ensuing restart, Gallagher quickly regained control and Erwin’s run down the left took him straight into the box, allowing him to score from the edge of the 6 yard box less than a minute later, giving Gallagher the lead.

The boys were able to tie the game (see video below) despite significant off-field challenges but it wouldn’t be enough to gain promotion to the Premier Division.

A game with no impact on the standings following the mornings tie against Gallagher, the local boys were unable to generate enough interest in their perfomance to achieve anything more than a scoreless tie.

All of the games are being played on the Greenwood Stadium Field at the Cooper Soccer Complex. Come see some of the best 15 year olds (freshman and sophomores) in the region. The photo is from 3 years ago, of current U16 players.

Midwest Regional League – Springfield SC U17 Fall To KC Blaze

Springfield SC – 1
KC Blaze Velocity – 2
In the final weekend of play for the MRL First Division, the local boys fell to the KC squad that is currently in the middle of the table with them. After a scoreless first half, the Blaze got a pair of goals in 10 minutes early in the second half from Conner Parrish (St Pius X) to gain the lead on the hosts. Springfield pushed up and scored a goal midway through the second half, by Austin Hart (Glendale) as he collected a loose ball in the box following a throw-in and dribbled across the face of the six yard box before slipping it inside the far upright. The team was unable to get a tying goal and only avoided a larger margin due a pair of quality saves by goalkeeper Levi Millsap (Catholic).

The team is made up of boys from Glendale, Kickapoo, Catholic, Carthage, Joplin, New Covenant, Marshfield, Willard from the names I recognize. Coached by Mike Seabolt (Missouri State), the league is invitation only and offers a high level of competition against teams from Chicago, St Louis, Kansas City and Springfield, IL.

There are three more games on Sunday for anyone interested in seeing the level of play, all at Cooper Soccer Complex at Lake Country Soccer.
9:00 am – KC Blaze Velocity (MO) vs Lou Fusz-Red (MO)
9:00 am – Springfield SC 92/93 (MO) vs KC Fusion Dowling (KS)
2:00 pm – Springfield SC 92/93 (MO) vs Lou Fusz-Red (MO)

The games against Lou Fusz are always entertaining, considering a 2pm afternoon in the beautiful weather.
