NBAA Soccer Week
Chill, Crossfire: Team Crossfire handed in another all-around team effort against a well coached very talented Chill team. Zachary Baniel, Claire Jastroch, and Annabelle Shaw used their skills to spread the ball around opening up the offense that was highlighted by multiple goal performances from Jonah Kopischke and Matias Krammer. Matthew Griffith added a goal as well. Team Crossfire wants to thank the Chill for a great game.
Fury, Lightning: Team Fury’s third was easily the coldest of the season (to this point). It was just above 40 degrees and had barely finished raining when the 8:45 game started. The kids were cold and I think it helped them run a little harder. This week’s snacks were well deserved. Zohaib Syed and Andrew Rivedal scored goals for Team Fury. Great game everyone!
Hammerheads, Quakes: Team Quakes started the game great. Drew Weis scored the 1st goal of the game followed by Sami Rikkola scoring the 2nd goal. Marcus Intravaia and Conner McCoy Williams showed great defensive moves. And Daniel Serra used great teamwork while playing offense. Timmy Graeve has been a solid goalie for our team. Jack Rikkola and Gabe Stephens had some really close goal attempts. Go Quakes!
The Hammerheads played a great team game on the offensive end topping the Quakes 8-2. The Quakes jumped out to a quick lead notching two early goals to put the Hammerheads back on their heels. The Hammerheads settled in with some nice passing by Drew Davis and Evan Rinzel that led to a breakaway goal by Sam Batchelor to finally put their team on the board. The Hammerheads used that momentum to net three more goals by Sam Batchelor and a great Ian Kolp pass that led to Evan Rinzel scoring a goal to close the scoring in the first half. Alexander Diamantopoulos played solid goalie and Kevin Liu played lock down defense for the Hammerheads the rest of the first half giving up no additional goals. The second half was highlighted by stellar goalkeeping from Evan Rinzel and defense by Kevin Liu, Owen Schaar and Jackson Konlock as the Hammerheads shut down the Quakes. Sam Batchelor scored two more goals and Drew Davis added another to close out the scoring for the Hammerheads.
Impact, Piranhas: Matthew Nestor, Luke Nemoir, Caden Schmear, Will Markofski, and Aidan Fuerst all hit in goals for the Impact. John Williams and Evan Brazaitis did a great job in goal.
Crossfire, Fever: The game was 0-0 after the first half. Then the crossfire scored six goals in the second half. Baily Betlinski score 3 goals, Natalie Leupi scored 2 goals, and Joanna Wick scored one.
Chill Cougars: Great defense played by both teams. Isabella Kramer scored her first goal of the season for the Cougars. The Chill tied up the game shortly after. Late in the second half Alexa Loomer scored the go ahead goal to give the lead to the Cougars for good. The Cougars two outstanding goal keepers for the game were Rachel Zautis and Rebecca Przybysz.
Rage 5, Stampede 0: It was a high energy game between the Rage and the Stampede. Logan Burgmeier and Andrew Kubiak had some great assists to Matthew Ewens, Ethan Wentz, Aaron Bertsch and Jameson Stoltmann who scored the goals. Vinny DiMotto played an awesome defensive game. The entire Rage team worked together making passes to each other to win the game.
Surge 7, Voltage 5: The Voltage suffered its first loss of the season to a very good Surge team. Even though the Voltage had a lot of goals from Ty Deckert and Bill Dowling, thanks to the constant running and passing of Matthew Schultz (one of our game ball winners) the Surge’s offense was just too strong. The only reason the game was so close is due to the fantastic goal keeping efforts of our other game ball winner, Jake Berenz, who caught, deflected and stopped over a dozen shots on goal.
Piranhas 1, Phantoms 0: The young Piranhas withstood an early barrage of shots on goal from the very talented Phantoms and then landed an arching over the shoulder kick that landed in goal, taking a first half 1 to 0 lead that they never relinquished. The Phantoms seemed to be everywhere at first and at the end of the day out shot the Piranhas 16 to eight. However, great goal and defensive play reined the Phantoms in giving the Piranhas their first victory of the season. Anastasia Hoeg scored the game’s only goal with an assist from Megan Habermehl. The Phantoms took 16 shots on goal only to have them smothered by Anastasia Hoeg with 9 saves and Brianna Duszynski with seven. The Piranhas took control of the center of the field with great defensive play. Danielle Nyenhuis led the way stopping 10 Phantom drives followed by Megan Habermehl with 9; Jayme Ewens, Grace Lopez, Isabel Meza, Natalie Sampson, and Becky Wyco all with 7 apiece; Lily Hill, Anastasia Hoeg, Chloe Moran and Nirali Patel each with 5; Tiara Perkins stopped 4 drives and Brianna Duszynski, stopped three. Molly Austad, Rainie Briski, Alyssa Mallmann and Zoe Spilker were not available for the game.
