The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) announced the matchups and schedule for the semifinals of the CONCACAF Women’s Championship USA 2014, to be played at Philadelphia’s PPL Park on Friday, October 24.

Host United States navigated the group stage with a perfect record, and is set to take on perennial rival Mexico at 7:30 PM EST on Friday night, with a ticket to the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 on the line. That match will be preceded at 4:00 PM by the first semifinal, as Group B winner Costa Rica takes on Group A runner-up Trinidad and Tobago, with both sides in search of their first-ever trip to the Women’s World Cup.

The winner of each semifinal match earns a chance to play for the regional crown in the Championship match, scheduled for 6 PM on Sunday, October 26, also at PPL Park. The semifinal losers will play off on Sunday at 3 PM, for the region’s final direct ticket to the Women’s World Cup.

In all, the CONCACAF Women’s Championship will qualify its top three finishers directly to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, with the fourth-placed team earning the right to face Ecuador – South American qualifying’s fourth place finisher — in a playoff later this year for an additional World Cup bid. As host of the Women’s World Cup 2015, Canada has already secured its place in next year’s tournament.

Via AC Porta Via – We are proud to announce our partnership with the city of Valley Park to build a sports complex that will be the new home for AC Porta Via Soccer Club. The rendering above shows the layout of our new complex. 3 of the 6 fields will contain lighting, all fields will be irrigated, and 2 of the 6 fields will be SAND BASED HYBRID TURF (NO RUBBER PELLETS).

acportavia-logoXtraGrass is a natural grass turf reinforced with artificial fibers to give a winning formula of great natural grass playability and a surface that is much more resistant to wear. It is a network of synthetic turf fibers woven into a strong backing material and laid directly on a standard pitch base. XtraGrass is carefully in filled with a special root zone mix and sown with grass seeds. Within days, the grass seeds germinate and grow between the synthetic fibers and through the backing. This creates an incredibly strong natural grass surface which is resistant to sliding and tackles. As the grass grows, the backing material partially biodegrades, leaving more room for the roots to grow through, while still retaining a strong support structure for the grass. The synthetic fibers take some of the pressure and wear and tear off the natural grass shoots, allowing much greater usage than would be possible with a standard natural grass surface. Divots become a distant memory as the XtraGrass structure continues to hold the turf in place.

USWNT Scores 5 in shutout over Guatemala in WWCQ at Toyota Park

Megan Rapinoe celebrates Tobin Heath’s game-winner


The U.S. Women’s National Team moved a step closer to securing a spot in the semifinals of the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship with a 5-0 victory against Guatemala in Group A play at Toyota Park.

A resurgent USA squad scored four second-half goals. Tobin Heath led the way with two goals, while Carli Lloyd, Megan Rapinoe and center back Whitney Engen each tallied a goal. Of note was Alex Morgan re-injuring her left ankle in the 37th minute. She did not return.

The USA moves to the summit of Group A with a 2-0-0 record. Earlier in the day in Group A action, Trinidad & Tobago defeated Haiti 1-0. At 1-1-0, both Trinidad & Tobago and Haiti are fighting to also move on from group play, while Guatemala has been eliminated with a 0-2-0 record.

The U.S. wraps up Group A play against Haiti on Monday, Oct. 20, at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. (6:30 p.m. CT; FOX Sports 1). A victory or draw would guarantee the USA first place in the group and a top seed to face the Group B runner-up in the semifinals. The U.S. can also win Group A with a loss against Haiti if it retains superior goal differential. Read more at USsoccer.com

Meet the St Louis Soccer HOF Future Stars http://soccerstl.net/2014/10/18/meet-the-st-louis-soccer-hof-future-stars/ http://soccerstl.net/2014/10/18/meet-the-st-louis-soccer-hof-future-stars/#respond Sat, 18 Oct 2014 07:08:33 +0000 http://soccerstl.net/?p=9146849 The St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame Induction Banquet and Ceremony is tonight. The event is being held at The America’s Ballroom at the America’s Center (call Larry Donovan at 636-671-7147 to join them).

Beginning in 2008, the HOF began recognizing High School Juniors going into their Senior year for their accomplishments on the soccer field. 2 Men and 2 Ladies are chosen based on individual All-Metro honors with team accomplishments also taken into account. The Hall also talks with coaches, referees and in some cases, college recruiters.

Future Stars have gone on to college with some receiving All-American honors. 2010 recipient Alec AJ Cochran is playing for Houston Dynamos and is on the Under 23 Mens National Team and Robert Kristo, SLU stand-out forwards, is on the Hermann watch list again this year.

The Future Soccer Star Honorees for 2014 are Maddie Pokorny, Madeline Cowell, Sam Peterson and Kyle Weinrich. More details on each player can be found at the St Louis Soccer HOF website.

Kyle Weinrich St. Charles West Warriors

A four year starter for the Warriors in the center midfield, Kyle has helped lead the team to a pair of Gateway Athletic North Championships.

He has spent 10 years as a member of the Tony Glavin Soccer Club and the past two years has been part of the St Louis Lions USL Premier Development League (PDL/U23) Reserve Team with a memorable stint with the full team that includes becoming the youngest goal scorer in league history. In addition to competing for the Club’s USL Super Y squad, he was invited to the National ODP Camp (IMG Academy – Bradenton, FL) this Summer .

For school, he was recognized as the Overall Metro St Louis High School Scoring Leader (97 Points – 33 goals / 31 assists) as a junior while earning Missouri Class 2 All-State First Team and being named to the 2013 All-Metro Team. He is a Scholar Athlete the past two years at St Charles West High School. He has not made a college playing decision yet although a November decision is likely as he focuses on finishing his senior season with the Warriors.

Sam Peterson Eureka Wildcats

The Eureka Wildcats are defending District Champions, advancing to the Sectional finals (Elite 8) in 2013. En route, they defeated a pair of Top 20 nationally ranked teams and finished as the #6 Large School. Sam was recognized as Class 3 2nd Team All-State as well as the STL/SE MO Region Class 3 GK of the year and Suburban West Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

For Club with Scott Gallagher, the team were MDL Regional Runner-ups earning an 11-1-3 record and Gateway Division Championship. He allowed 2 goals in 12 games with 10 shut outs.

Madeline Cowell Duchesne H.S.

Madeline Cowell is a 4 year starter for Duchesne. She was primarily a midfield player in her first two years. She was moved to a wing back as a junior, where she still has a dangerous offensive presence.

She is the daughter of Dave and Judy Cowell, sister of Allison, Ben, and Ethan. Her father, older sister, and younger brother all play/played soccer for Duchesne.

Madeline is without a doubt our fittest player in the entire program (girls or boys). She is a very skilled player with both feet, and is always a threat on set pieces. Her switch to defense is a credit to her high skill level and knowledge of the game.

Madeline has been a key ingredient to the 2013 and 2014 State Champion Teams. In 2014 she was recognized as First Team All Conference, All Region, and All State. She will wear the captains armband in 2015 for Duchesne, a role she is more than qualified for. Madeline has committed to play soccer for Chad Edwards at Missouri Western University.

She follows Cristina Rodriguez in establishing herself as one of the most dynamic attacking players in Missouri, being recognized as a Future Star and next year, joining Rodriguez on the pitch at St Louis University.

Duchesne comes back to win 3-2 at District rival St Charles West

Sr Kyle Weinrich, SCW pushes forward against Duchesne


A late season match up that featured a local derby as well as Class 2 District foes, the Warriors opened well Thursday night. A foul 30 yards out near the far touch line offered a direct kick opportunity for senior Kyle Weinrich, one of five boys scheduled to be feted on Senior Night at halftime. Kyle, who is being recognized Saturday at the St Louis Soccer Hall of Fame Banquet as a “Future Star”, offered an example of the talent he has to offer by putting his kick into the top left hand corner of the net to open the scoring in the 5th minute.

On a side note, Madeline Cowell of the Duschesne Pioneers Class 1 State Championship team last Spring, is also being featured as a Future Star along with Madeline ‘Maddie’ Pokorny (Webster Groves) and Sam Peterson (Eureka).

Duchesne, recently seeded first in District 6, just ahead of the Warriors at #2, fought back as outside right Adam Pundmann offered some senior magic of his own, getting forward to finish in the 12th minute with his first goal of the season. St Charles West grabbed their second lead of the game via Logan Gonce, Weinrich’s partner in the central midfield. I was told by @StephenatKSDK who was on hand for the game, that a feature was coming on Logan.

Duchesne, as noted, fought back in the second half with a pair of goals to earn the comeback win. Goal scorers were Jimmy Choinka and Daniel Fink. Blake Goewert in goal played a key role yet again for the Pioneers. Midway through the first half he denied Weinrich a second by tipping the shot over the crossbar.

The Warriors, 2013 GAC North Champions, and new Head Coach Matt Dwyer now prepare for their opening District game against Lutheran St Charles on October 27th at 7pm. Duchesne will face North County Tech at 5pm. Lutheran St Charles is the host. Class 2 District 6

St Charles West face Ft Zumwalt East Saturday in a make up game and have Zumwalt South and Troy remaining next week, all larger schools to prepare them for the second season.

USWNT Open CONCACAF Qualifying with 1-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago at Sporting Park

The U.S. Women’s National Team earned a 1-0 victory against Trinidad & Tobago to open Group A play at the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship at Sporting Park, home of Major League Soccer’s Sporting Kansas City.

Trinidad & Tobago managed to withstand the USA’s heavy attack with plenty of defenders behind the ball, but the U.S. eventually found the back of the net when all-time leading goal scorer Abby Wambach scored her 171st international goal in the 54th minute.

After the tournament’s opening day, the USA shares first place in Group A with Haiti as both teams earned 1-0 wins. In Wednesday’s earlier match, a shorthanded Haiti side defeated Guatemala at Sporting Park as Lindsey Zullo scored the game’s only goal. Haiti goalkeeper Cynthia Chery was given a red card early in the first half.
