On a beautiful fall Wednesday afternoon, the Chaminade sixth grade soccer players squared off against the Parkway Central seventh grade squad. The game ended up being more like a St. Louis Steamers vs. New York Arrows game from the old MISL days of the early 1980's. The fans were listening to "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" music and looking for Captain Steamer, fog machines, Steve Zungul, Kai Haaskavi, Tony "The Pocket Rocket" Glavin, Eric Delabar, and Steve Pecher. After watching his team turn a 3-0 halftime lead into a 4-3 deficit after the first 8 minutes of the second half, the Chaminade coach was frantically looking around for legendary coach Pat McBride to help him right the sinking ship. The young CCP lads quickly regained control of the match and put a few in the back of the net themselves for a 7-4 lead. The clock became Chaminade's best friend as time expired with a 7-6 Chaminade victory. The statistician for the game did his best job to record goals, assists, shots, saves, and important segments of the game, but the action was fast and furious for the entire 60-minute match. Please forgive the stat person if any names are missed, but players have reported that CCP goals were scored by Isiah Shepherd, Justin Carmody, Trey Cunneen, and two goals apiece from Alec Yalavarthi and Lucas O'Neal. Strong performances were turned in by Harry Malloy, Harlan Sheehan, Hunter Michalak, Blake Pacifico, Hayden Falb, and McEwen "Q" Scully. Scully controlled a good portion of the match from the center of the park and distributed many passes to players who scored some spectacular goals. The next contest for the Chaminade "Steamers" will be Wednesday, Sept. 20, on the pitch at Chaminade's baseball outfield stadium. If the "Old Barn" Arena still existed down on Oakland Avenue, this writer is quite certain that the sixth graders would draw 20,000 fans per game with their exciting brand of play.
Chaminade got back to their winning ways and came out with a lot of energy. After two goals in the first five minutes, Chaminade kept the pressure on. Several players chipped in with goals. Shutout shared by Will Latta and Cameron Gegg.
A fine offensive and defensive, complete-game performance by the 6th grade soccer team against a bigger and older Bayless team. Many players had great games, and the heat did not deter the 21 CCP players from putting forth their best effort. Goalkeeping duties were split by Charlie Haas and Hayden Falb. Several assists were dished out by midfielders "Q" Scully, Lucas O'Neal, and Blake Pacifico. Trey Cunneen held down the duties in the backfield. Goals were scored by Justin Carmody (2), Isiah Shepherd, Alec Yalavarthi, Palmer Cerko, and John Maynard. Next game is Tuesday, Sept. 26, vs. Parkway Central. No practice on Wed. 9/27 due to early dismissal. Thank you for your efforts, boys. Mr. TG
A better result against an always tough JBS team. The Red Devils worked hard all game and were almost rewarded for their efforts, but the crossbar and JBS goalie had other plans. Fantastic team effort by all players.
A great game and team effort by the Red Devils. A back and worth game the first half with score being tied at 3-3 at halftime. The Red Devils took control second half with a couple of quick goals. Goals by Skorubskiy (2), Maurice, Allen, and Clarke.
The Red Devils got off to a slow start as MICDS struck first. Chaminade got on the board moments later with a Jackson Allen strike from distance. Mike Anthon would find the net later in the first half with a skillful prep touch and finish. With the weather changing for the worst, the boys pressed for a security goal, which Ted McNulty scored with a nice low shot to the far corner. In the final minutes of the game, Barry Xu found scored his first goal for Chaminade after some great build up play. Overall, a solid performance from the Red Devils.
Great game at home against a really good team of 7th graders from John Burroughs School. The younger, faster, and more creative Chaminade sixth graders played very well and had several chances to even the score or take the lead. Jack Temporiti and Harry Malloy had stellar games in goal, and Trey Cunneen, Alec Yalavarthi, and "Q" Scully controlled the middle of the park for most of the match. The lone goal for CCP was scored by Justin Carmody.
A very fun game to be in attendance for as energy levels from both teams were high. Chaminade got on the board in the first ten minutes with some swift build up play and through ball from Teddy McNulty to Max Skorubskiy who buried it in the upper 90. Mike Anthon scored Chaminade's second off a free kick curled around the defensive wall. Chaminade was disappointed not to get the win, but will keep working for their final two games.
The Chaminade sixth graders went with a different starting line-up on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon at Henderson Fields in Fenton, MO. The new starters did not disappoint as they controlled most of the early portion of the game and helped set the tone for the rest of the team against a formidable CCLS squad. Jack Temporiti and Hayden Falb split time to share the shut-out in goal. Timmy Dolan and Charlie Haas were all around the goal area and had several good chances throughout the match. Blake Pacifico, Lucas O'Neal, Hunter Michalak, Colin Hugge, Brendan Bordeaux, and Jason Rea played key roles in dictating the pace of play from the backfield and midfield positions on the pitch. Goals were scored by Isiah Shepherd (2) and Alec Yalavarthi.
Chaminade scored very quickly after a shot from distance by John Adamitis. Mid-way through the first half, Mike Anthon won a loose ball in the middle and scored another goal from distance for Chaminade's second. The third goal came from some nice passing down the left flank to Teddy McNulty who found Joe Gill for Chaminade's third goal. Max Skorubskiy scored Chaminade's fourth with a fantastic volley off a corner kick. The boys will be back in action for their final game next Friday against Westminster.
Another thriller against Westminster. Chaminade got on the board from a Joe Cavanaugh strike from distance. Westminster would score two back to back goals midway through the first half. Chaminade came out on fire for the second half, dominating possession and creating many chances. Mike Anthon would get the tying goal off a corner kick. Overall, a very solid performance from Chaminade against a big and physical Westminster team. With the tie, Chaminade 8th grade team went the last ten games unbeaten, which is no easy feat.
Another classic ... on a brisk, windy, blustery fall day, the Chaminade sixth grade soccer team locked horns with the 7th grade boys from Burroughs. Jack Temporiti made several big saves throughout the game to allow the boys enough time to muster one final, game-tying attack in the final 3 minutes of the match. McEwen "Q" Scully scored an impressive goal on an individual effort as he deked and dipped his way past 3 defenders and slipped a sneaky shot past the goalkeeper. Chaminade pressed and dominated for most of the second half and nearly scored the go-ahead goal with 8 seconds left as the Burroughs goalie made a good save on Justin Carmody's shot. Thanks for a great season!
