An early goal from Titans of Illinois Wesleyan University was not enough to take down the Eagles of Emory University today in Atlanta, Georgia.

Illinois Wesleyan features two players from Springfield in Tim Griffin (Parkview) and Tom Marlow (Parkview). Marlow’s minutes were limited as he is coming from a pair of injuries that kept him out a week of pre-season. Griffin played for most of the game and looked dangerous with the ball at his feet, especially in transition. The goal from Sam Peniak of Illinois Wesleyan came in the 17th minute after a lovely through ball and a burst of speed to outrace the Emory defender.

Emory got back in the game in the 39th minute with a fabulous goal from Senior defender Adam Waxman. The pace and frequent substitution of Emory’s attackers seemed to take a toll on the Titans towards the end of each half. Despite this, Emory still struggled to put the ball in the back of the net but clearly looked more dangerous than last year’s squad. Set piece goal machine Jake Graetz scored the game winner in the 67th minute off an indirect kick from Zach Samuels. Sophomore defender Andrew Natalino finished the scoring in the final minute of play with a tremendous run from the back and exchange with right side midfielder Chris Howie.

A constant threat when on the field for Emory was Springfield Greenwood product Chris Aiken. The freshmen used his pace and size to his advantage, creating a number of dangerous opportunities for the Eagles. If he can find a way to convert some of the chances he’s creating for himself, he could have a real impact on the success of the team going forward.

The final two games of the tournament are tomorrow.

Springfield SC U18 Boys Open Midwest Regional League Season With 3 Shut Outs

With April showers comes the start of Midwest Regional League (MRL) play for the 2-time defending state Champion Springfield SC U18 boys squad. The boys will face three familiar foes this weekend in St Louis, and I hope to see one or more of the games while also enjoying Easter weekend with Mom.

MRL Soccer: U18 Premier - Springfield SC vs Chicago Sockers

Sockers FC Chicago U18 (IL) – 0
Springfield SC 90/91 (MO) – 3
Sunday saw the third straight shut-out for SSC as they defeated the Sockers through the air, on a fine run and finish (pictured above) and from the penalty spot. The first goal was scored by Ryan Moses as he rose above the defense to nod Tyler Bennett’s cross from the right side into the goal. That was in the 7th minute, shortly after Tim Griffin sent him in alone on goal and a shot that went just wide left. Late in the half, Devon Newport’s direct kick from 25 yards out went off the left upright but shortly afterwards, Griffin took it upon himself to expand the lead. Collecting a ball 40 yards out, he turned and beat his first defender. Continuing his run straight down the middle, with teammates making diagonal runs and calling for the ball, Griffin slid between two defenders as he ran into the box and calmly slotted his shot to the far side netting (pictured above) to make it 2-0.

SSC expanded their lead late in the 2nd half when Devon Newport was pulled down in the box. The PK was taken by Ryan Moses who buried it underneath the keepers diving attempt to stop the ball.

Saturday 3pm – Springfield SC 90/91 (MO) shut out their opponent, United 1996 International (KY) by the score of 2-0. Goals were scored by ?

Springfield SC 90/91 (MO)
– 2
Fort Wayne Fever (IN) – 0
The boys look well prepared for their MRL season as the unspoken, and spoken, teamwork was working at a high pace this evening. Facing a familiar foe (I still remember that 1st game win against the Fever at the Region II tournament in Des Moines in 2007) they came out fast and hard. It led to a direct kick from 30 yards out in the 17th minute that was converted by Ryan Moses (SLU/Kickapoo) as shown in the video above. Ian Newport (SLU/Glendale) scored from the spot in the 61st minute for the final margin.

A good weekend results-wise for the boys but I know Coach Cory Carr would have liked to see more. I’m going to dig into the USSF Academy program sometime in the next few weeks. This was not the same team I saw in June 2007 when the boys beat the Sockers 3-1 to get into the Regional semifinals, as the Sockers have moved many of them into the Academy team. And if the boys are going to go beyond the Regional semifinals this year, they can’t be pulling back now. I’ll have more photos, including a Socker’s album, later this evening. For now it’s time to go enjoy Easter with my family. Happy Easter to all!

All games are played at the new Scott Gallagher facility in Maryland Heights. Other scheduled games include:
United 1996 International (KY) v St Louis Scott Gallagher
Sockers FC Chicago U18 (IL) v St Louis Scott Gallagher
Fort Wayne Fever (IN) v St Louis Scott Gallagher

A Shout Out to the Parkview Vikings Nurnberg and Griffin

Kickapoo Shootout: Parkview Vikings vs Rockwood Summit Congratulations to Coach Clint Nurnberg who earned his 200th career win Monday evening against Branson (guys and girls combined). The Vikings were 19-7-0 going into tonight’s game, meaning he and the team are 20 game winners this season.

UPDATE – Oops. It’s still at 189, the ladies are going to have to win 11 or more this Spring

And congratulations to senior Tim Griffin (pictured being congratulated after his OT winner against Rockwood Summit) who broke the Parkview Vikings career scoring record in the game against Branson with two goals, taking him to 93 total. He was tied with Patrick Carver, now a D3 All-American at Emory University, going into the game. He also broke Carver’s single season scoring record of 36, reaching 37 this season with his two goals. Well done Mr Griffin. scort girls

    Willard Tigers Tournament

Willard Soccer Fall Classic: Bolivar Liberators vs Hillcrest HornetsBolivar Liberators – 2
Hillcrest Hornets – 1
Elation for the Liberators as Bradley Stillwagon (pictured in white, defended by Radu Mariuta) scores 2 goals in the final 3 minutes of regulation to defeat the Hornets. The Hornet’s took the lead in the 53rd on some brilliant combination play, with Ballhorn winning not one, but two 50/50 balls, a quick no look pass into the path of Bryce Collier who’s run and shot was deflected, with Michael Freeman following the play and finishing the rebound.

The initial goal by Stillwagon was from Kyle Slagle’s free kick from the left side, headed down and deflected past the keeper off of a defender in the 77th. In the 78th, a long flip throw by sophomore Matt Magana gave Stillwagon a second opportunity he finished confidently. The assist by Magana gave him 35 in 1 1/2 years and ties the career record at Bolivar.

Willard Soccer Fall Classic: Cassville Wildcats vs New Covenant WarriorsCassville Wildcats – 3
New Covenant Warriors – 0
These two teams met September 6th, with the Wildcats earning a close 3-2 win after which the Warriors ran off a string of 8 straight wins until losing by a goal to Warrensburg last week. So there was plenty of pride at stake in this burgeoning rivalry. The difference today was the play of goalkeeper Michael Rush (pictured, stopping Jeremy Weimer) who stopped anything that came into his box today, regardless of the hazards. The Wildcats got a pair of goals from Uziel Franco, one of the top forwards in the region, as well as a PK goal by Omar Valenzuela.

Monett Cubs – 4
Webb City Cardinals – 2 (at halftime)

Saturday’s schedule has Bolivar vs Cassville as well as Hillcrest vs NCA at 8:00 am. At 10:00 am Willard vs Monett and Logan-Rogersville vs Webb City (I”m guessing on these last two, based upon the half time score of the Cubs vs Cardinals). 3rd place game at noon, Championship at 2:00 pm.
