NBAA Soccer Week 1
Blitzz (Price Chiropractic), Eclipse: Our 5 year old coed team did a fantastic job for their first game.
Cougars, Crossfire: Team Crossfire played very well in their season opener versus a well coached and very talented Cougars team on both sides of the field. In a total team effort, Team Crossfire saw scoring from Matthew Griffith and a multiple goal performance from Jonah Kopischke. Claire Jastroch also proved to be a strong force on the offensive side. Zachary Baniel, Annabelle Shaw, Matias Krammer, and Zachary Schrom contributed to an outstanding defensive effort for the Crossfire.
Fury, Piranhas: Team Fury had a great first game of the 2012 season. It was the first soccer game for Aidan Prusinski and Ben Radish. They both played very well. All boys got a chance to play different positions. Great plays were made me each player and everyone had fun. Joey Prei and Jacob Kaldor scored goals for Team Fury. Great job everyone!!
Force, Quakes: The Quakes put in a strong effort for the first game of the season. Goalies for the game were Sami Rikkola, Tyler Demshar, and Timmy Graeve. The whole team made solid defensive and offensive attempts as everyone was able to rotate through both positions. Great job Team Quakes!!
Hammerheads, Kings: In the Hammerheads first game of the year they used good passing and solid defense. The Kings jumped out to an early lead, but Sam Batchelor responded with three quick goals. Kevin Liu also scored in the first half. Evan Rinzel tacked on the Hammerheads fifth goal and Drew Davis closed out the scoring finding the back of the net twice. Evan Rinzel and Sam Batchelor split goalkeeping duties in the first and second halves, respectively. Both players turned away several goals and quickly punted the ball forward leading to a number of advantages on the offensive end. The goalkeepers were supported by the aggressive defense of Jack Rogutich, Owen Schaar, Ian Kolp and Jackson Konlock.
Impact, Invaders: The game was highlighted by constant offensive pressure by the Invaders, backed by efficient defensive play and outstanding goal keeping. The offensive charge was led by Ryan Anderson, scoring two goals in the first half. Charlie Cefalu scored the team’s third goal in the second half. Also providing consistent offense pressure and multiple shots on goal were Jack Pawlowski, Jordan Kopp and Aidan Vetter. On the defensive side of the ball first year player Noah Schick provided outstanding play. High energy hustle by Jack Pawlowski, Ryan Anderson and Jordan Kopp kept the Impact off the Invaders side of the field and fed the team’s offensive attack. Charlie Cefalu and Luke Hartman combined for the shut out with multiple saves and great goal keeping.
Crossfire, Eclipse: Tasha Davis scored 4 goals and Rachel Leupi scored 3 goals for the Crossfire. It was lots of fun!.
Cougars, Express: This was great game to start out the season. Very tough defense by both teams. Lexi Loomer scored the first goal of the season to give the Cougars an early lead, but Team Express fought hard to tie the game up before half time. Kaiya Goff scored the winning goal mid way through the second half. Outstanding goalie play by both teams, Cougars first half goalie Izzy Kramer was diving all over the place stopping would be goals, and in the second half Samantha Baniel shut out the Express. Both teams played a great game.
Rage 4, Riptide 1: It was a good team effort by the Rage. Our two goalies, Dawson Loebel and EthanWentz, had many awesome saves. Vinny DiMotto and Andrew Kubiak had several assists. Aaron Bertsch and Matthew Ewens each scored two goals.
Force 10, Fury 2: An epic battle! Brooke Bluhm scored 4 goals, Madison Hegarty 3 goals, Katie Melski 2 goals, and Audrey Flanders 1 goal. Solid defense by Grace Rades and Mallory Devinger.
Voltage 6, Wave 2: The Voltage had a great start to the season on goals by Carter Kullaz, Ty Deckert and Bill Dowling, and fantastic goalkeeping by Jake Berenz and Joey Tarantino (one of our game ball winners). The defense was further anchored by Jaeden Phillips and our other game ball winner, Nick Sadowski.
Quakes 1, Piranhas 0: Piranhas go on a shooting Frenzy but can’t score—lose to Quakes 1 to 0. The Piranhas brought in a young untested team that refused to be shaken by the Quakes but was unable to score in what was a frustrating 1 to 0 loss. Showing great team work and fearlessness, the Piranhas battled to a 0 to 0 halftime tie and had only one breakdown in the second half that led to the Quakes’ only score. The Piranhas out played the Quakes taking 23 shots on goal versus their 10. So many shots were so close, yet none connected frustrating the Piranhas’ offence. Strong defensive contributions by everyone allowed only 10 Quake shots on goal. Jayme Ewens led the Piranhas by stopping 15 Quake drives followed by Becky Wyco with 10; Megan Habermehl with 8; Chloe Moran with 7; Molly Austad, Brianna Duszynski, Anastasia Hoeg and Isabel Meza each with 5; and Lily Hill, Alyssa Mallmann, Danielle Nyenhuis, Tiara Perkins, Natalie Sampson and Zoe Spilker each stopping three. Anastasia Hoeg had 5 saves in goal while Danielle Nyenhuis had four.
