NBAA Soccer Week 2
Blast, Eclipse: We had one player score 6 goals. Jacob Ausprung had a great game, scoring 6 goals.
Fury, Phantoms – Team Fury’s second game of the season went well, but with only 1 extra player, the kids got tired quickly. Everyone improved from last week’s game and put in a great effort. Joey Prie scored for team Fury this week.
Hammerheads, Invaders: The Hammerheads and Invaders played a hard fought game that was not decided until the final few minutes with the Hammerheads coming out on top 3-2. Evan Rinzel, Drew Davis and Sam Batchelor anchored the Hammerheads office early with a number of shots on goal. Evan Rinzel finally found the back of the net for the team’s first goal giving the Hammerheads the early lead. The Invaders responded with a goal of their own to leave the score locked at one at halftime. Alexander Diamantopoulos anchored the Hammerheads defense in the first half as goalie while Kevin Liu played very aggressively in the field turning away a number of Invaders attacks. In the second half Evan Rinzel scored his second goal of the game for the Hammerheads (while playing goalie) on a booming kick that found its way into the net. Again, it wasn’t long before the game was tied again. After the Hammerheads were whistled for a hand ball the Invaders used the free kick to their advantage knotting the score at 2-2. Jackson Konlock, Jack Rogutich, Ian Kolp and Kevin Liu continued to play great defense for the Hammerheads turning away a number of threats and pushing the ball forward. After several near misses, Sam Batchelor was finally able to get one past the Invaders goalie scoring the winning goal for the Hammerheads in the final few minutes of the game.
Impact, Quakes: The Quakes really hustled out there today. Drew Weis and Gabe Stephens played awesome offensively and had several great scoring attempts. Brayden Demshar had some great defensive blocks. Team Quakes are showing lots of improvement!
Matthew Nestor led the Impact in scoring with 3 goals. Dylan Holschbach, Aidan Fuerst and John Williams each slammed in a goal to complete the scoring. Michael Winter and Caden Schmear played great in goal for the shutout.
Cougars, Fever: This was a very close defensive game. Kaiya Goff scored both goals for the Cougars one in the first half and one in second half. The Fever scored one in the first half, but tough defense and goalie play by the Cougars to keep the Fever from scoring in the second half. The Cougars two outstanding goal keepers for the game were Gabrielle Patterson and Grace Wollmer. Hard played game by both teams.
Rage 4, Spitfire 2 – The Rage captured their second win this year. It was another great team effort. Vinny DiMotto had some great saves as the goalie. Andrew Kubiak had a lot of assists. Jack Wendt played top notch defense along with Ethan Watry and Logan Bergmeier. Ethan Watry and Matthew Ewens scored the goals.
Tornados 2, Voltage 2: The second game for the Voltage was a very hard fought match. After being down by 2 goals, we battled back to end in a tie on goals by Ty Deckert and Bill Dowling, thanks to some great assists by our left-footer, Kenny Wokatsch (one of our game ball winners). The defense held strong thanks to Isaac Sem and our other game ball winner, Nick Bonneville.
Quakes 5, Piranhas 2: The Menace schooled the young Piranhas on proper spacing and teamwork in the first half taking 10 shots on goal compared to the Piranhas’ one. As a result, the Piranhas found themselves behind 3 to 0 at half time. However, the Piranhas learned well as they turned the tables, scored two quick goals, and had a third careen off the goal post across the center of the goal and out of bounds that would have tied the game. The Menace was able to score two break-a-way goals at the end of game as the Piranhas pressed the action. Molly Austad led the comeback scoring both goals with assist from Tiara Perkins and Anastasia Hoeg. The Menace took 15 shots on goal compared to the Piranhas’ five. Anastasia Hoeg and Danielle Nyenhuis each had five saves in goal. Jayme Ewens led the Piranhas defensively by stopping 11 Menace drives followed by Becky Wyco with 9; Megan Habermehl with 8; Brianna Duszynski, Lily Hill, Grace Lopez, Alyssa Mallmann and Natalie Sampson each had 4; Anastasia Hoeg had 3; Molly Austad, Isabel Meza, Chloe Moran, Danielle Nyenhuis, Tiara Perkins, each stopping two.
