In Midwest Conference action Tuesday, in the Premier I 2006 division, Sporting STL Goddard and JB Marine McKeon played to a scoreless draw. An evening when I had to pull out my gloves and stocking cap for the first time this season, the play kept the participants plenty warm.
Sporting STL are the defending Cup champions and reached the semifinals last Summer in their first trip to the Midwest Regionals. That qualified them for the Premier Division where they have started slow, losing their first three but they are now 1-3-3 having won against Midwest United followed by three draws, including last night. They’ll finish Midwest Conference play this weekend with games on Saturday and Sunday.
JB Marine McKeon have a similar record but sit just above Sporting STL due to a -3 goal differential in their seven matches compared to a -7 for the boys in black. They also finish their MWC schedule with a pair of games this weekend.
