The MCC represented the Monsignor Meyer Division by having all three participating squads go undefeated in pool play and advance as three of the four semi-finalists. In the first semi-final, Chaminade met SLUH for the second time this season and SLUH came out on top, with a goal in the first half from Clark Conway and one in the second by Elliot Boerding in a 2-0 victory (shutout by Albert Reinwart).

In the second semi-final, CBC took on Webster Groves and it went to the second OT before the Statesman tallied the game winner in a 2-1 victory for Webster Groves. The Cadets goal was scored by Jake Meyerkord.

SLU Billikens Atlantic 10 Conference Action About to Open http://soccerstl.net/2014/09/28/slu-billikens-atlantic-10-conference-action-to-open/ http://soccerstl.net/2014/09/28/slu-billikens-atlantic-10-conference-action-to-open/#respond Sun, 28 Sep 2014 13:26:16 +0000 http://soccerstl.net/?p=9146693
SLU Billikens defeat Omaha 4-2 in NCAA Division 1 Womens Soccer

Danielle Manning, SLU Billikens


Via SLU Billikens – Livi Logan-Wood scored two goals, and Saint Louis out-shot Omaha 29-6 in a 4-2 Billiken victory Saturday afternoon at Robert R. Hermann Stadium.

The Billikens evened their record at 5-5 as they prepare to begin Atlantic 10 Conference play next Saturday at preseason favorite and defending regular-season champion Dayton. Omaha, a member of the Summit League, slipped to 2-8.

Saint Louis established season highs of 29 total shots and 15 shots on goal while tying its season bests of four goals and four assists. It was the Billikens’ third four-goal game of the season. Omaha’s six total shots tied the season low by a Saint Louis opponent.

In recording the first two-goal performance of her collegiate career, Logan-Wood became the second Billiken to find the back of the net twice in a game this season. Lindsay Elking hit the target twice at Illinois-Chicago. Read more about the game at SLU Billikens

Now the hard part starts as Conference play begins. As noted, the Billiken’s reached .500 with Saturday’s win. The problem is they have been fattening up on programs that will not match the level of play they’ll see in the Atlantic 10 Conference. Both Omaha (formerly Univ of Nebraska-Omaha) and UIC are brand new Division 1 programs, UNO moving up from D2 while UIC began play this year.

It did offer a chance to see players that could offer some value before the season is out or in the coming year as only three players – GK Benben, center defender Mary Wright along with central midfielder Tori Marshall played 86 or more minutes. That meant we saw new players like Danielle Manning (pictured above) who has a deft touch, pace and some real passing chops. She created the final goal when she beat her defender to a ball in front of the GK who was 10 yards out of the box, sending Jordan Catalano in for her first collegiate goal. Catalano has been pulling short stints at forward fairly consistently and offers nice composure around the box. She works well with Manning and the two offer a different style if scoring opportunities don’t continue apace as the Conference season develops.

SLU currently checks in at 207 on the NCAA Ranking list Evansville (a 4-1 win) is at 165 but otherwise the wins have come against teams below them. The losses – Iowa State is at 86, Northwestern is at 88, while UT-Martin is at 105 in the NCAA rankings, the best OVC program. Western Michigan comes in at at 136 but Murray State, an 0-1 loss, is only at 244. So one upset win and one upset loss.

The Conference schedule opens with a three game road trip – Dayton (#97), George Mason (#249) and Saint Joseph’s (#144). A 1-2 record before returning to host Fordham (#174) and La Salle (#50) in mid-October could make for a tough start. The team is going to need to get a pair of wins in these five games if they want to qualify for the tournament and continue the slow but steady steps forward they have been making.

One other factor I’ll be watching is the move of Lindsay Elking into the attacking midfield role, while Tomais and Rodriguez are outside her. Elking is the most important player on the team and while I generally argue for central roles for those players, the defensive challenges in Atlantic 10 play may pull her away from the offensive third too much. That’s where a rotation of players that starts with Tolmais with Shaney Sakamoto, Lauren Tondl and Lauren Merlo getting minutes may be more important to challenging the best players in the A-10 while ensuring Elking’s offensive skills are focused.

Webster Groves Faces SLUH in CYC Meyer Final http://soccerstl.net/2014/09/27/webster-groves-faces-sluh-in-cyc-meyer-final/ http://soccerstl.net/2014/09/27/webster-groves-faces-sluh-in-cyc-meyer-final/#respond Sat, 27 Sep 2014 16:45:23 +0000 http://soccerstl.net/?p=9146687 2014-09-26-WebsterGroves-CBC-CYC-soccer-3
The Final in the CYC Msgr. Louis Meyer Division Saturday will feature the SLUH Jr. Billikens against the Webster Grove Statesmen. The game will be played at 8:00 pm on Field #1 at the St Louis Soccer Park. SLUH will wear home whites.

The CBC Cadets took an early lead when Senior Jake Meyerkord finished his chance in the 14th, from service provided by Kurt Gerteisen. Webster tied the match in the first half when Antoine Givens touched a ball past the goalkeeper from Mick Hanrahan’s dead ball service. Hanrahan would deliver again in the 2nd overtime when Trey Paloucek got his head onto a 35 yard ball to the back post. I chatted with Paloucek post-game, you can hear it below.

SLUH came out with a desire to show that the opening game loss to Chaminade was not how their team would be measured. They accomplished that with a 2-0 win over the Red Devils that saw a pair of late goals send them through. The first was scored by Clark Conway on an individual effort in the 37th minute, with a bending shot from the top of the box. Elliott Boerding got the second in the 83rd as he flicked a ball over the keepers head for the final margin.

HOW DID THEY GET HERE
SLUH opened with a tough 2-1 win over Kirkwood before clobbering Oakville 7-0 on Wednesday. The 3-0 win against Belleville West sends them through with 14 points.

Webster Groves won 4-3 Monday against St Mary’s in a back and forth affair before seeing Rock Bridge come back to tie them 2-2 on Tuesday. Wednesday’s shutout of Collinsville (2-0) sends them through with 11 points while Collinsville finished second with 6.

Timberland vs Waterloo in CYC Walsh Division Final http://soccerstl.net/2014/09/27/timberland-vs-waterloo-in-cyc-walsh-division-final/ http://soccerstl.net/2014/09/27/timberland-vs-waterloo-in-cyc-walsh-division-final/#respond Sat, 27 Sep 2014 16:11:56 +0000 http://soccerstl.net/?p=9146677
Timberland holds on for 2-1 win over Columbia in CYC Tournament semifinal, 26 Sep 2014

Timberland kept this ball, from a throw-in, from tying the game


The Final in the CYC Msgr. Larry Walsh Division Saturday will feature the Timberland Wolves against the Waterloo Bulldogs. The game will be played at 6:00 pm on Field #1 at the St Louis Soccer Park. Timberland will wear home whites.

Timberland advanced with a win over previously undefeated Columbia (IL) in Friday’s semifinal by a 2-1 margin. Updated – Jack Kilz scored the 1st goal for the Wolves. In the 15th minute on a header that he hit to the ground where it skipped past the GK before finishing in the roof of the net. From a corner kick. The second, by “Kousha” came in the 49th minute when he got to a cross from the right before the keeper, touching it past him before finishing into the empty net. Columbia scored in the 52nd when following a corner kick, Logan Cannon collected the clearance before calmly slotting a low shot thru the crowd into the far corner from 30+ yards out. My interview with Timberland Head Coach Kyle Austin, post-game, is below (along with info on Waterloo so keep scrolling).

PHOTO GALLERY – Timberland vs Columbia

The Waterloo Bulldogs stunned Triad with a pair of early goals before going on to fight off two comback efforts by the Knights before prevailing 4-3. Waterloo’s Adam Shelby scored in the 4th and 9th minutes to open the match. The second was a rocket by Clay Mentz, from outside the box back across to the far post. The Knights fought back, with Will Deatherage scoring a header from a corner kick in the 13th followed by Will Powell’s goal in the 25th when his midfielder drew defenders before dishing off on the left to give Powell a 1v1 with the GK that he finished well. Mentz got his 2nd in the 54th to restore the lead for Waterloo, as he wove between defenders before finishing in the box. Deatherage knotted the score for Triad yet again, another headed goal from 8 yards out as Justin Carpenter flicked a corner kick over his defender into his path.

The game-winner came in the 61st as Sean Kirkpatrick finished service from Cain on a square ball through the six yard box. This is the second straight win over Triad for Waterloo in 10 days. I discuss the game and the rivalry with Head Coach Chad Holding below.

PHOTO GALLERY – Waterloo Bulldogs vs Triad Knights

One topic I neglected to discuss with Coach Holding was the great save his keeper made in the final five minutes as Triad got loose on the left and a shot from the edge of the box looked headed for the far side netting until … made a diving save that pushed the ball just beyond the far upright. Big time stuff.

HOW DID THEY GET HERE

Timberland opened with a 5-0 shutout of Alton Marquette before winning 7-1 against Trinity. A 2-0 shutout of Clayton Thursday sends them to the semifinals with 14 points. The 5 points from the win meant Alton Marquette wouldn’t catch Timberland but 2nd place was a possibility. Goal differential for Alton Marquette was -1 entering the match Thursday while Columbia finished +7 in three games to advance.

Triad opened with a pair of shutouts, 1-0 against Ft Zumwalt North in a very tight match, followed by 2-0 against Pattonville. They finished with a 1-1 tie against a tough Columbia Eagles squad that earned them the group win, 12 points to 10 for Columbia. Waterloo had shutout wins over Ladue (3-0) and Granite City (4-0) before finishing with a scoreless tie against Kennedy, easily winning the group with 13 points, ahead of Granite City and Ladue with 7.

Northwest wins CYC Soccer Tournament semifinal over Affton, 26 Sep 2014

Northwest challenges in the box against Affton


The Final in the CYC Msgr. Lloyd Sullivan Division Saturday will feature the Seckman Jaguars against the Northwest Lions. The game will be played at 7:00 pm on Field #5 at the St Louis Soccer Park. Seckman will wear home whites.

The Jaguars advanced with a 3-2 win over Fox in the semifinals. Goals were scored by Buechel, who had a brace, and Trigg. Assists were credited to A, Berhorst, Buol and Kramer.

Northwest – 3, 1 – Affton: I joined the action right after Affton came back to tie the score at 1-1 midway through the 1st half. The Lions got the lead back late in the first half from Guiga Tiexiera, who also scored the first. It turned out to be the game-winner as Affton was unable to fight back again. Logan Christopher got the final goal in the 75th as the Affton defense opened up while trying to get forward.

Seckman opened 6-0 against Civic Memorial (Bethalto) and followed that with a 2-2 draw against St Pius X. A final match against Class 2 DuBourg finished 3-1. The 11 points was matched by Fox who tied 1-1 against St Pius X in the final group game Thursday. St Pius X finished with 9 points on a shutout win and a pair of ties, both to Class 4 Seckman and Fox. The best second place team is Fox by goal differential. While tied in points with Seckman the goal difference was +6 vs +5 in Seckman’s favor.

Northwest opened with a pair of shutouts, 3-0 over Lutheran South and 4-0 over Mascoutah before finishing against St Clair. They advance with the maximum 15 points. They face Affton who shutout Highland (IL) 1-0 Monday followed by another 1-0 win Wednesday against Washington. Thursday against Bayless they finished 2-2 for 12 points

2014-09-06 WUSTL wins in OT against Rhodes in NCAA D3 womens soccer

Lillie Toaspern shoots for WUSTL vs Rhodes


I’m not prone to superlatives on this site, preferring a more understated approach to promoting the game and the players here. There is no denying however that the only college teams to truly compete at the National level from this region reside on the edge of Forest Park, on the Washington University campus. Saturday is your opportunity to see what that means. I can’t recommend it more highly.

For the second consecutive season and the third time in school history, the Washington University in St. Louis women’s soccer team is ranked No. 1 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Top-25 Poll. They opened in that spot and have remained there while going 8-0 to open the season, giving up only one goal (to Webster, go Gorloks!) Washington U. has outscored its opponents 27-1 in that period.

The Bears face their stiffest competition of the 2014 season Saturday, Sept. 27, when No. 10-ranked Wheaton College (Ill.) visits Francis Field for a 1 p.m. kickoff. Wheaton has a 7-1 overall record in 2014, and have handed Washington U. its last three losses dating back to the 2011 season.

The team is led by Senior forward Lillie Toaspern, who’s goal in the fourth minute against Principia this week, made her the fifth member of the 100-point club at WUSTL.

Toaspern, the reigning Disney Soccer/National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Division III and University Athletic Association (UAA) Player of the Week, has five goals and seven assists for a team-high 17 points this season. She ranks fifth in school history in assists (29) and points (101), sixth in goals (37) and seventh in game-winning goals (nine). I talked to her following the team’s win against Rhodes earlier this month.

Rock Bridge Comes Back to Tie Webster Groves in CYC Boys soccer

Sheriden Smith holds the ball in traffic


The 60th Annual CYC/Bob Guelker Tournament will be held the Monday, September 22nd through Saturday, September 27th. This years tournament features 41 teams competing in 3 different divisions.

The Msgr. Louis Meyer Division represents the large schools in the region. Teams include: Belleville West, CBC, Chaminade, Collinsville, Duchesne, Howell Central, Kirkwood, Lindbergh, Mehlville, Oakville, O’Fallon, Parkway West, Rock Bridge, SLUH, St. Marys, Trinity, Webster Groves. Meyer Division Schedule updated 9-8-14

The teams will compete in four divisions, providing for group play at the beginning of the week. A single Division champion will then advance to the Semifinals on Friday with the Final on Saturday evening. The Divisions are identified below with tables tracking their results during the week. I’ll add game detail as it’s available.

The games are being played at St. Louis Soccer Park except for a few exceptions – a pair of games Tuesday at SLUH and a single game Thursday at Chaminade and at CBC. The Home Team is listed first. The Point system is detailed at the bottom of this post.

THURSDAY PREVIEW – Webster Groves has advanced to the semifinals Friday at 8pm by winning their group C with 11 points. They’ll face the Group B winner which I’m projecting to be CBC. The Cadets face Class 2 Duchesne Thursday and any points (2 for a draw) will move them beyond Melhville’s reach.

For Group A, Chaminade will face Francis Howell Central at 4:30 pm at Chaminade for the group title. Both have a pair of shutout wins and 10 points. It’s where I’ll start my day. The winner will face SLUH I believe. The Jr Billiken’s have a pair of wins and face Belleville West who have been shut out twice. Kirkwood and Oakville will play at 4:15pm at Soccer Park, the same time as SLUHvBellevilleWest so the answer will come early.

Triad GK save in 1-0 win over Zumwalt North


The 60th Annual CYC/Bob Guelker Tournament will be held the Monday, September 22nd through Saturday, September 27th. This years tournament features 41 teams competing in 3 different divisions.

The Msgr. Larry Walsh Division includes the following Teams: Alton Marquette Explorers, Clayton, Columbia, Fort Zumwalt North, Granite City, Kennedy, Ladue, Pattonville, Timberland, Triad, Trinity and Waterloo. Walsh Division Schedule updated 8-26-14

The teams will compete in three divisions, providing for group play at the beginning of the week. The semifinals will be contested between 1st Place Pool A vs Best 2nd place team among the three Divisions. The second semifinal game is 1st Place Pool B vs 1st Place Pool C.

The Divisions are identified below with tables tracking their results during the week. I’ll add game detail as it’s available.

The games are being played at multiple locations from Columbia IL to Chesterfield. The semifinals and Final will be played at St. Louis Soccer Park Friday and Saturday. The Home Team is listed first. The Point system is detailed at the bottom of this post.

THURSDAY PREVIEW – Only Group A have games remaining and Timberland control their destiny. A tie against Clayton and they are through with 11 points. Marquette will likely win against Trinity but need a shutout for five points to move past Timberland, or Clayton. We could see a three-way tie at 9 points apiece.

The Group B winner is Triad with 12 points following a pair of shutouts and their tie with Columbia Wednesday evening. Columbia finishes with 10 points and could advance depending on Group A results.

The Group C winner is Waterloo with 13 points from a pair of shutout wins and a scoreless tie today against Kennedy.
