U17 Girls St Louis Scott Gallagher, Jan 2011

Molly Brewer Headed To Nationals

U17 Girls St Louis Scott Gallagher, Jan 2011
Molly Brewer (Glendale 2012), last seen suffering a knee injury while clearing Megan Melugin’s shot off the line in OT during the Falcon’s loss to Kickapoo in the District 12 semifinals in May, has fully recovered. Molly and her teammates on St. Louis Scott Gallagher became the second National League team to earn a spot in the 2011 US Youth Soccer National Championships as they claimed the U-17 Girls Blue Championship Sunday in Florida.

Molly (2nd from left, front row in the photo) scored the lone Scott Gallagher goal in the 40th minute of the teams first match in Orlando, usually the most important game of any tournament. The 1-0 win, combined with another shutout win in the 2nd game, meant their 0-0 tie in the third game of the tournament, guaranteed their spot in the National Tournament in July.

The US Youth Soccer National League competition is for the nation’s top teams in the Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 boys and girls age groups. The National League offers additional exposure to collegiate, professional and U.S. National Team coaches and offers top notch competition. National League teams earn slots via success in the US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues and the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series.

The 2011 US Youth Soccer National Championships are being held in Phoenix July 26-31. Congratulations to Molly. She joins Chelsea and Skyler Russell as players from this region to compete at Nationals. Chelsea was a member of the U15 National Champions with St Louis SC in 2006. filipino escort in dubai

Thursday Ozarks Regional Soccer Report

Glendale Falcons Outscore Kickapoo ChiefsGlendale Falcons – 4
Kickapoo Chiefs – 1
The Falcon’s set a high bar in the traditional derby this evening, winning easily by comparison to the history of this series. The game-winner was scored in the 6th minute (I subscribe to the goal that establishes a lead that is not relinquished when measuring game-winners) when Brandon Baum buried his 28 yard direct kick into the upper 90 over the outstretched hands of Kickapoo keeper Tyler Moses. Only 4 minutes later freshman Austin Hart scored as he ran onto a loose ball in the 6 yard box, following Patrick Baltz’s run into the box and shot that was parried by a diving keeper.

Kickapoo had opportunities in this game as twice in the next 10 minutes Baum and then Cameron Dugan were called upon to clear balls from behind Glendale keeper Jordan Pitt. A lack of bodies in the right place meant that the only goal the Chiefs would score this evening would come in stoppage time of the 1st half. Substitute Sean Marren first won a 50/50 ball in midfield before slotting a diagonal pass that sent Skyler Russell into the box between a pair of defenders. His shot from 15 yards brought the Chiefs back within 1 entering the 2nd half. Rumor has it that this is the first goal Russell has ever scored against either the Falcon’s or the Pershing Generals.

The Falcon’s extended their lead in the first 10 minutes of the second half. First Baltz once again got into the 6 yard box, this time burying a shot from Alec Martinez’s short pass. Later Dugan buried a shot that came after a scramble in the box, sealing the victory.

Charles Renken Signs With 1899 Hoffenheim

Scott Gallagher SC vs St Louis SC - Jun 12 U14 Soccer by Ives has reported that former Scott Gallagher player Charles Renken has signed with German-side 1899 Hoffenheim

Two of the best players in the U.S. national team youth system will be taking their development to Europe.

ESPN.com’s Justin Rodriguez is reporting that Charles Renken and Joseph Gyau will be joining the 1899 Hoffenheim youth academy. The story mentions multi-year contracts for both, but it should be noted that FIFA bylaws do not permit players younger than 18 to sign binding professional contracts outside of their home countries.

The agreement will mean that Gyau and Renken will split time between the Hoffenheim academy and the Vancouver Whitecaps residency school for the next year.

Gyau, 16, and Renken, 15, are two of the best players on the current U.S. Under-17 national team and have been hotly pursued by several European clubs.

Charles, pictured above playing in Springfield as part of the 2006 Missouri State Cup, was a 12 year old playing as a member of the U14 State Championship squad in 2006 that included Skyler Russell, who is a senior at Kickapoo and will play at Syracuse next year AND Jordan Pitts, a senior goalkeeper at Glendale. Skyler is center row, 3rd from left while Jordan is top row, far right.

By the way, the video is from Thursday nights 8v8 Kick Around at Kickapoo High School. The Chiefs, Falcons and Ozark Tigers were playing a series of 30 minute games with each school fielding a pair of teams. Two of the Chief’s 3 seniors this year are shown, with Skyler Russell bringing the ball down the left side with a square ball to Ian Kennedy who’s one-timer is blocked by senior Jordan Pitt, with the goal line save coming from senior Brandon Baum.
