SBU Bearcats Spring Soccer Update

Molly Marcotte prepares to hammer a shot into the roof of the net against Quincy

The Southwest Baptist Lady Bearcats opened their Spring season in late March, as part of the Parkway College Showcase tournament. Facing off against the GLVC Champion Quincy Hawks, the Bearcats came out focused on continuing the strong improvements shown in the second half of 2012. The Bearcats gave up a 1st half goal on a set piece, with the final shot deflecting beyond the reach of starting goalkeeper Paige Hemphill (Ozark/MO Elite), a member of the 2010 Southwest All-Stars. They went on to control the majority of the play in the second half en route to a 1-1 tie.

SBU’s goal was scored by Molly Marcotte (Republic/MO Elite). A corner kick seeking Ashley Creason (Lees Summit), the Bearcats playmaker, found her on the far edge of the six yard box. Her header fell to teammate Taylor Schmidt (Liberty) who’s shot was parried by Chapie. Two more shots, by Karla and Kate Jamison respectively were also rejected but as Karla Jamison fell into the box, Marcotte hammered the loose ball into the roof of the net (pictured).

The Bearcats have a home game Saturday. At 2pm they host Missouri S&T. They travel to Springfield on April 27th to play at Missouri State and later against Butler CC, times to be determined.

As Head Coach Robert Podeyn noted “We played well this past weekend against Mid America Nazarene and Missouri Valley. We won 4-0 and 7-1. The one goal was scored with no time remaining and we were up 7-0. Spring has gone pretty well for us and I think we’ll do well in the Fall.”

One thing I’ve learned in 10 years of Spring games is not to put too much weight on the results. Too many variable as teams are more focused on development and experimenting with players in different positions. Regardless, they’ve got a strong junior class led by Creason with her two Southwest Missouri teammates. With a pair of teammates (Nicole Billmeyer and Brittany Marino) from the #1 St Dominic team coming in this Fall, there’s a good recruiting class as well.

This is a game I always look forward to and with the large recruiting class of local players that Head Coach Rob Podeyn has brought into the Bearcats roster, there’s an even stronger pull. Still an exhibition game for both teams, its a nice measurement for the Bearcats (MIAA) and Panthers (GLVC) as they complete preparations for their D2 seasons.

Game time is 6:00 pm Saturday at Harrison Stadium.

The Bearcats recruits for 2010 from the region include Paige Hemphill (Ozark), Rachel Haden (Ozark), Molly Marcotte (Republic), Amy Coffey (Rogersville), Erin Boschen (Hillcrest), Megan Melguin (Kickapoo) and Chelsea VanHook (Camdenton).

Southwest Baptist opens their season on September 2nd when the Quincy Hawks visit. Quincy is ranked #2 in the GLVC while Drury is ranked #6 which means the results of tonights game and next weeks game will offer an early assessment of the quality of the GLVC coaches prognostication skills.

The Panthers hit the road for three games next week, at Ashland, Tiffin and Lewis over the Labor Day holiday weekend. They visit Quincy on September 10th. la vip escorts
