Missouri State Wins Spring Exhibition Game At SLU

Beautiful night on a beautiful pitch at Robert E Hermann Stadium in St Louis Wednesday. Missouri State and St Louis University, last seen battling for the opportunity to advance to the second round of the NCAA tournament, renewed acquaintances for a Spring exhibition match. As a player and a coach, once you reach this level you never want to lose but I’ve also learned to take these games with a grain of salt. It’s a good opportunity to try things and in the case of new SLU Coach Mike McGinty, learn more about your team under game conditions.

All this to preface a result that was a positive one for our local boys as Jordan Hoffman, as promised at half time, scored for the Bear’s in the 66th minute. The young man was also removed from the game before the ensuing restart when his ‘banter’ with SLU forward Mike Roach reached a level that the referee felt warranted a red card. So much for a simple Spring match between these two teams.

For the Billikens, both Devon Newport (Glendale/SSC) and Ryan Moses (Kickapoo/SSC) were in the starting line up and played the majority of the match. Good stuff tonight which you can see in the photos and I’ll throw up one or two videos tomorrow.

Missouri State Bears At St Louis University Billikens

SLU Billikens host Missouri State BearsSLU Billikens – 2
Missouri State Bears – 0
A pair of goals by a pair of St Louis products gave the home team another win against their in-state rival. A goal in the 8th minute by Mike Roach (Chaminade 2007, pictured being defended by Ryan Hennessey) and Jimmy Holmes (Priory 2006) who was sent in alone in the 74th by Roach, was enough to hold off an improved Bears squad. Tonight’s game included a start by #24 Devon Newport (Glendale 2009, Springfield SC) and minutes in both halves for him and #25 Ryan Moses (Kickapoo 2009, Springfield SC) who also played in both halves.

While unable to break the winless streak against SLU, this MSU squad looks like it should do well in the MVC as noted by the Coaches poll.

Missouri State opens the regular season on Tuesday, September 1, at Tulsa. The Bears and Golden Hurricanes kick off at 7:00 p.m. at Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium.

Game time is 7pm tonight, I’ll be in attendance with my niece. I’ll have a few photos along with a report later.

It’s the first exhibition match for the Billikens and you can catch it via live streaming if you are interested.

All Billiken exhibition and regular-season home games are video streamed live through Billiken All-Access at www.slubillikens.com. Subscriptions are available for $79.95 annually or $9.95 a month.

In preseason rankings, the Billikens come in at No. 21 in the NSCAA coaches’ poll and No. 24 in the CollegeSoccerNews.com poll. The Billikens return six starters and 15 total letterwinners from last year’s club that finished 12-5-5 overall and 6-3-0 in the Atlantic 10 Conference.
