Shelby Stewart And Ian Kennedy – Springfield SC Players of the Year

Springfield SC Players of the Year
Springfield SC Players of the Year - Ian Kennedy and Shelby Stewart with Eric Sorlie
Springfield SC announced their Players of the Year for 2009 at their annual banquet last night. With an attendance of well over 500, the club recognized Ian Kennedy (Kickapoo) and Shelby Stewart (Parkview) as their Players of the Year. Chosen for their performance, team impact and sportsmanship, the two join a select group of players who have developed in the program.

Shelby Stewart has signed to play soccer for the Missouri State Bears next Fall. Shelby was featured here early in a report on her signing. Stewart heads into her senior year with the Vikings, where she will be a three year Varsity starter after not playing her freshmen season due to transfer limitations. Stewart scored 25 goals to go along with 11 assists her junior year at Parkview. Her speed and leaping ability are top-tier and will be critical elements in her development as a college player. She just wrapped up the basketball season where she was a starting forward for the Vikings, who lost to District finalists Branson Monday in the first round.

Ian Kennedy has signed to play soccer for the William Jewell Cardinals, a team that is moving from NAIA to Division II in the Fall of 2010, effectively trading Evangel and the HAAC for Drury and the Great Lakes Valley Conference. Joining his former teammate from the two-time State Championship squad, Ryan Squires, Kennedy will likely play a similar role for the Cardinals as he did for SSC. Ian is coming off of the Quarterfinal run the Chiefs made in 2009 where he was the emotional leader that made Kickapoo the top team from the region. He will hone his play this year as a member of the defending MRL Premier Division champions this Spring.

UPDATE: as Prof Richard Garrad notes in the comments, “William Jewell will hopefully be provisionally accepted to Division II during the 2011-12 academic year, and become an active Division II program in 2012-2013”. He’s keeping a closer eye on the program then I since there is another Falcon playing for the Cardinal’s, his daughter Megan. A conversation on Monday with the coaching staff at MO S&T indicated that they are still working on the Fall 2010 schedule because it will include Wm Jewell. escort in dubai

9/9 Ozark Conference High School Soccer Report

Kickapoo Chiefs host Camdenton Lakers

Kickapoo Chiefs – 2
Camdenton Lakers – 1
In a hard fought battle, the two Conference rivals went toe-to-toe and both came away disappointed tonight. The Chief’s goals were both scored by junior Skyler Russell as Kickapoo’s new 4-3-3 formation brought them the offensive output needed to win the game. Russell’s first goal was scored in the 25th minute as he moved across from his wing forward position and challenged for a ball. Upon winning it, he quickly turned back before unleashing a 25 yard shot that skipped past the GK’s outstretched arms.

The Laker’s surprised the Chief’s as well, coming out early in the 2nd half and getting a game-tying goal in the 49th minute from senior forward Jeff Moffitt. It stayed knotted at 1-1 as both goal keepers played very well, with junior Ryan Moriarty for the Laker’s making some fine reaction saves in the box including one against Ryan Moses from 6 yards out. Kickapoo’s Chris Tombridge patrolled 40 yards beyond the endline for the Chief’s in blunting several counter-attack efforts by Camdenton as well as a point blank shot by Rayder Bennett.

The game winner was a beauty, scored in the 53rd minute when senior Ryan Moses sent a 50 yard ball into the Laker’s goal box. Russell ran under the ball, shielding the defender as he positioned himself to control the ball. Or so the defender thought, as the left-footed volley blew past the goal keeper from 15 yards out. Russell also attempted a bicycle later, as the Lakers were caught napping on a throw-in, but the keeper responded to the challenge.

Parkview Vikings – 5
Hillcrest Hornets – 1
Bryce Collier scored unassisted for Hillcrest, earning them the early lead. Parkview came back however with five goals to earn the win. Tim Griffin had 3 and Jared Moore and Vance Marlow each added a goal.

Lebanon Yellowjackets – 2 (PK’s)
West Plains Zizzers – 1
In a game that went to PK’s following two OT’s, the Yellowjackets prevailed at home. Ethan Hunt scored for the Zizzers, #7 for the Yellowjackets – Lebanon Senior Kyle Strief, defender, scored on a header off of a corner, also scored the winning PK.

Rolla Bulldogs – 3
Joplin Eagles – 2
Rolla scored first with a goal from senior Tyler Sinnott. Sinnott, who was assisted by senior Andrew Chism, scored in the first minute of the game. They paired up again in the 22nd minute before Max Duncan got Joplin within one in the 55th and Samuel Yount tied the game. Rolla’s Cody Martin got the game winner in the 65th minute. From the Joplin Globe story:

“Rolla is one of the best teams in the conference,” Miller said. “You have to play with them every minute of the game. We just weren’t there in the first half.”

Meanwhile, the Glendale Falcons were on the road to Kansas City where they are taking part in the Kansas-Missouri Classic where they defeated the Washburn Rural Junior Blues, 2-1. Devon Newport (1G/1A), Ryan Squires (1G), Graham Basecke (1A), Patrick Baltz (1A).arab tranny

Springfield Soccer ClubThe Springfield Soccer Club 90/91 (Under 17) Boys claimed their second consecutive Missouri Youth Soccer Association State Cup Championship by defeating Lou Fusz-Popovic in penalty kicks 5-4 at the Scott Gallagher Soccer Complex in St. Louis, MO May 10th. By winning the MYSA State Cup Championship the team has earned the right to represent Missouri at the US Youth Soccer Region II Championships in Rockford, IL June 20-25, 2008. Sixteen teams will compete in pool play to determine the Regional Champion and advance to the US Youth Soccer National Championships July 22-27, 2008 in North Little Rock, AR.

The MYSA Championship game was a tightly contested affair with Springfield S.C. 90/91 taking the early lead off a Ryan Moses free kick from the top of the eighteen yard box. Moses delicately bent the ball over the wall into the upper ninety of the goal. Minutes later Lou Fusz would answer to make the game even at 1-1. A thirty minute lightning delay extended the first half and the game remained tied 1-1 going into halftime. The second half saw opportunities for both teams with Springfield S.C. 90/91 having a few good looks at the goal.

Still tied at the conclusion of regular time the game went into two fifteen overtime periods. Having the better of play during overtime Springfield S.C. 90/91 was unable to find a goal. The game then went to penalty kicks where both teams made three of their five kicks, forcing the game into golden goal penalty kicks. Both teams made their first kick and Springfield S.C. 90/91 made their second attempt, while Lou Fusz missed their second one and that secured the MYSA State Cup Championship for Springfield S.C. 90/91.

Having achieved their second MYSA State Cup Championship the team is now looking forward to improving their 2007 Semi-Finalist status at Regionals. “Without a doubt this victory was a tremendous statement by the players. They have stayed committed during the past several months at it paid off today. It was a total team effort, but when it got to penalty kicks Christopher Tombridge our goalkeeper took over.” said Cory Carr Head Coach.
