Springfield SC U23’s Host NWA Lightning Tonight


UPDATE – the Springfield SC U23’s won the inaugural Ozarks Challenge Cup Wednesday night on aggregate goals 6-1.

The team got a pair of late goals, in the 75th and 79th minute, to win the home leg of the series 2-0. The first goal came as the team slowly wore down their opponent and maintained possession in the offensive end. Winning a 1v1 battle on the far left side of the box allowed x to slot a ball to Justin Alford (MSU/Poplar Bluff) in the six yard box where he confidently buried a one-touch ball into the roof of the net. The second goal came on a corner kick by John Duncan (WashU/Joplin) with Heath Melugin (MSU/Kickapoo) rising above the defense to nod it home.

Springfield Soccer Club The game is the final leg of a home-and-away series initiated this year between the two clubs, with the winner earning the Ozarks Challenge Cup hardware.

Game time is 7:05 pm at Cooper Soccer Complex, Field 1.

As a few folks have pointed out to me, it could be the last opportunity to see All-American Patrick Carver (Parkview 2005) play in Springfield prior to the end of his collegiate career at Emory University. Emory will visit Washington University on October 12th when he’ll face off against high school teammate Joshua Florez (and John Duncan, Joplin and Bryson Tombridge, Kickapoo) but that will require a Sunday drive.

The boys are unbeaten in their 7 games this season and really gelling. It will be an enjoyable game. Come out and join us and support the local boys!escort agency los angeles

Springfield Soccer Club U23 Team Opens Play Saturday

Springfield Soccer ClubThe Springfield Soccer Club has initiated their Under 23 Men’s Program, which will open their season with a pair of games in St Louis this weekend and one in Bentonville on Sunday. For the 2008 season the team will play six away matches and three home matches at the Lake Country Soccer Complex.

The objective of the program is to provide a professional soccer environment for college age players. The program will offer many highlights for the college player; later start date so players can relax after the college spring semester is over, 6-8 matches so players have an appropriate level of training-match ratio. Additionally, players will participate in a 7 v 7 League which will allow for weekly opportunities to play during the summer.

“Having been a former coach in the PDL with the Chicago Fire Reserves (currently Chicago Fire Premier), I look forward to this program starting. We look forward to providing a professional environment, where college players can develop their game during the summer months. Players will also be taken care of like professionals, both when we travel and train.” said Jeremy Alumbaugh Director of Soccer Operations for Springfield Soccer Club.

Highlights of the match schedule will see the team traveling to Chicago for a weekend series of three games.

“After visiting with college coaches, many of them feel that too many of the current summer soccer programs place too much emphasis on games and not enough on training. We are going to try and provide a professional training environment with enough games to keep players sharp.” said Alumbaugh.

The team is made up from both local outstanding college players and significant Springfield Soccer Club Alumni, including 2007 NSCAA All-America Patrick Carver from Emory University as well as Alex Palmer, Danny Collins, Adam Peterson, Taylor Stacy and Stephen Conner from Drury; Alex Riggs, Kyle Windmueller, Brian Collins, Justin Alford and Nick Dryden from MSU; Ross Chaffin (Greenwood) from Denver University; John Duncan (Joplin) from Washington University; Nate Evans (Cassville) and Jesse Clevenger (College Heights) from MSSU; Heath Melugin (Kickapoo/MSU), Zack Hay (Kickapoo/ M S&T), TJ Martin (Webb City/Rogers State) and Michael Handley (Webb City/Ashford) as well as Springfield SC
