Sayonara Regular Season

Glendale Falcons at Kickapoo ChiefsGlendale Falcons – 4
Kickapoo Chiefs – 2
The Falcon’s earned their second win of the season over the Chiefs this evening on the strength of a pair of goals in stoppage time at the end of the first half. Both goals were opportunistic, with fortunate bounces in the run of play that were difficult reminders of the challenges the Chiefs have faced this season. The first, the ultimate game-winner, was scored by Falcon’s sophomore Lindsey Sprouse. An attempted clearance was deflected and “Sprousie” picked up the loose ball and went into the box unmarked before burying her shot. Less than a minute later, season assist leader Jeni Frewin found space on the left side and lifted her shot over the on-rushing keeper to the far post for a 2-0 lead.

The Chiefs imposed themselves on the visitors in the second half, only to see senior Rachel Duckworth deny them in the 49th minute when she some how found the length necessary to push the Chief’s shot wide. A minute later freshman McKenna Adams found the crossbar for the second time in the game before setting up senior Katy McLain for a goal in the 51st. Adam’s was a challenge for the Falcon’s all evening and on this occasion as she drew a pair of defenders on her run down the right side, she slid a square ball into the path of McLain’s parallel run down the left. Chiefs within one.

Glendale Falcons at Kickapoo ChiefsThe rivalry always brings the best out in these ladies however and the Falcon’s attacked with renewed energy. Frewin saw her shot in the 57th go off the right upright with goalkeeper Shannon Johnson covering the rebound in the face of a hard challenge. A corner kick in the 64th was somehow sent over the crossbar, Johnson covered another Sprouse breakaway, but in the 68th senior Lorin Opfer buried a corner kick from Emilee Williams to increase the margin yet again.

The Chiefs got a penalty kick goal by senior Chealsey Russell in the 73rd minute after a push in the box. It required two attempts as senior Rachel Duckworth guessed correctly and blocked the initial shot but Russell didn’t miss the rebound opportunity. The final margin came late on yet another corner kick, this time Frewin running onto Emily Cline’s driven ball.

The Chief’s finish the regular season 10-10, losing their last two games but showing a renewed attack with the return of Russell, Blotter and Anderson from injury. Their District 12 opponents should be forewarned. The Falcon’s finish 17-5, 8-1 in the Ozark Conference, and have a group of seniors who remember well both the joy of District victory as sophomores and the disappointment of last years failure in the semifinals. Someone needs to buy some fireworks for the games in Lebanon next week.

Kickapoo Chiefs Stake Claim For Top Seed

Kickapoo Chiefs vs Ozark TigersKickapoo Chiefs – 2
Ozark Tigers – 0
In a season of surprises and new contenders, a traditional power sent a message this evening that they are not to be counted out, despite losing a fourth starter to injury. On the strength of a pair of goals in a six minute span, the Chiefs evened their record at 8-8 and positioned themselves for the top seed in the upcoming District playoffs. Sophomore Mallory Williams (pictured, in brown) took advantage of a loose ball and an open net in stoppage time at the end of the first half to give the Chiefs the lead. Her game-winner was followed in the 44th minute by fellow sophomore Megan Etter, who found space between a pair of defenders and tapped in a wonderful square ball from Kiley Huslig on the right side of the box.

The Chiefs, who have lost four starters this season -seniors Chealsey Russell, Paige Blotter, junior Abby Anderson and now sophomore Megan Melugin – to significant injuries, have somehow found a way to overcome these hurdles and slowly fight their way back into contention. Slowly but surely they have integrated new players into the system and have found a way to win. That seems to be the key difference for the Chiefs – when they need to win, they have. While not dominating on the scoreboard, they have achieved the necessary results and barring anymore bad luck, have established themselves as the team to beat in District 11. Photo Slideshow

Big Weekend Of Soccer

A pair of tournaments and sunshine forecast all weekend – or at least through Saturday?

The Kickapoo Chiefs host the annual Kickapoo Shootout. I’m looking forward to seeing St Teresa’s (#2 from KC), Liberty (#6, KC) Lafayette (#7, STL), Jeff City (#12), Jackson (#13, Cape ), and Oakville (#14 STL) along with Class 1 powers Springfield Catholic (#6) and Notre Dame (#7, STL). The Glendale Falcon’s are also participating. Games begin at 4:30 pm with a pair of games at Kickapoo while Catholic hosts Parkway West at Cooper #2.

In the meantime, some fond memories for the Chiefs in advance of their tournament – the video features senior Paige Blotter after her game-winning PK against the Rogers Mounties (AR), who return for the Shootout this weekend. What do you think of my new experiment?

The Christian County Tournament is also scheduled for this weekend, hosted by Ozark Tigers and Nixa Eagles. I’ve updated my Calendar to reflect all of the games.

CANCELLED – see Jeff’s comment Saturday, the Missouri State Bears will play the Missouri Science & Technology Miners at Plaster in a Spring exhibition game. Start time is 6:00 pm.

Ozark Conference Soccer Will Rock You

Kickapoo Chiefs – 2
Rolla Bulldogs – 1
Chealsey Russell scored on a short shot assisted by a header from Paige Blotter off a Katie McLain corner for a 1-0 lead in the first half. The Chiefs extended their lead when Megan Melugin scored on an assist from Russell. Her shot came from near the 18 yard line and was sent to the keeper’s upper right. Rolla cut the lead to 2-1 when freshmen Ellen Spooner connect on a long throw into the 18. As at least one Chief’s player noted on their Facebook page – finally! We clicked and WE KILLED 🙂 Goodbye Rolla! 🙂

Lebanon Yellowjackets – 3
Parkview Vikings – 2
First half goal by Stephanie Fore. Parkview scored first in the 2nd half, by Emmy Dale from Jessica Maerz, to tie the game. Hanna Winkel scored for Lebanon to regain the lead. Parkview answered again, by Maerz from Melanie Allen, and the game remained tied until the final minutes when Lebanon was awarded a PK for a foul in the box. Winning PK made by Hanna Winkel. Field was not sloppy, but very slick. Both Parkview goals occurred when Lebanon was pushed up, the ball got through the defense, and Lebanon didn’t recover well.

JV tied 1-1. Tying goal made on a PK in the final minutes by Lebanon Freshman Brayli Hall.

Joplin Eagles – 3
West Plains Zizzers – 1
From the Zizzer website – Joplin opened the scoring in the 34th minute. After a Joplin corner kick, West Plains failed to clear the ball.

Kickapoo Chiefs Beat Rogers Mountaineers in PKs

Updated – I’ve added the Post Game Interview, Paige Blotter. In Windows Media Format.

Kickapoo Lady Chiefs host Rogers (AR) MountaineersSenior Paige Blotter calmly slotted her PK into the top of the net as the fifth shooter to give her team the much needed win this afternoon. The Chiefs went down 0-3 in the first half before getting a pair of goals late in the half to get back to 2-3. Freshman McKenna Adams tied the game (pictured) when she was waiting on the back half of the goal beat her defender to the loose ball that popped out of the goalkeepers hands on Chealsey Russell’s cross. Her tap in gave the Chiefs their first tie of the season. Her energy on the left wing also created the only lead the Chiefs have had this season when she followed teammate z intowon a ball deep in the left corner. Her back pass was then crossed into the box by Erica Freiert. Russell’s intelligent run allowed her to redirect the ball into the net in front of the GK in the six yard box.

The Mounties tied the game in the 70th minute on a wonderful run by their captain, who slipped past two defenders before slotting the ball to the near post late in the game. The Chiefs threatened but were unable to get the winner in regulation while Jessica McCutcheon withstood several significant challenges in the second half.

After winning Friday by netting 3 of 5 PK’s, the Mounties got goals from the 1st, 2nd and 5th shooter, only to see the Chief’s bury 4 of the 5, including Blotter’s final effort. Pictures and a video interview with Paige will follow.

From the NWArkansas paper

The Lady Mounties (10-3 ) jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead after the first 10 minutes but the Lady Chiefs rallied. Megan Dougherty had three goals during regulation and Liza Eppley scored the other in the nonconference loss.
