AMICC Division I soccer race tightens up

The race for first place in the Anna Maria Island Community Center Soccer League Division I got more interesting thanks to a pair of victories by Autoway Ford Oct. 22 and Oct. 23.

Division I’s second-place team, Autoway Ford, took on last-place Wash Family Construction Oct. 22, but Wash hardly looked like a team that had only garnered one win on the season. The players were passing crisply, and defenders Skyler Sculco and Alexia Yavalar were playing strong defense in front of goalie Keegan Murphy.

Tyler Yavalar benefited from both facets of the game when a strong tackle by Alexia Yavalar was followed by a couple of passes strung together. The ball eventually found its way to Tyler Yavalar, who deposited the ball into the back of the net for a 1-0 lead.

Both Yavalars were at it again in the 20th minute, when Alexia again came up with a defensive tackle and passed ahead to brother Tyler. Tyler Yavalar dribbled up the right side before cutting inside and firing a shot that found the back of the net for an improbable 2-0 lead.

It appeared that Autoway Ford halved the score two minutes later when Michael Latimer made a nice run up the right side and passed inside to Mikey Ellsworth, who poked it past the Wash goalie. However, the goal was disallowed when Ellsworth was ruled offsides, which kept the score at 2-0 in favor of Wash.

Late in the first half, Nico Calleja found some space up the left side and ripped a shot that Murphy couldn’t stop to halve the score.

Autoway Ford came out on fire in the second half, determined to get back into the game. A nice tackle by Sibella Glavan got things started for Autoway. She passed ahead to Ellsworth, who found Latimer up the right side. Latimer hit a rocket that caromed off the right post, but Latimer pounced, ripping it into the goal with his left foot to tie the score at 2-2.

Three minutes later, Ellsworth again found Latimer on the wing and this time Latimer’s shot kissed just inside the far post to give Autoway Ford its first lead of the game.

But Wash Family Construction bounced right back when Blaine Jenefsky picked the pocket of an Autoway Ford defender and toe-poked the ball into the back of the net to tie the score at 3-3.

The two teams continued to battle it out until the 40th minute when Ellsworth pushed the ball up the left side. The ball went too far, so Murphy came off his line in an attempt to clear the ball, but Ellsworth made a strong tackle and came up with it. He then passed the ball into the open goal for the game-winner.

In Division I action Oct. 23, Autoway Ford made the race rather interesting with a 2-0 win over previously undefeated Ross Built. Michael Latimer paced Autoway with a pair of goals to help his team pull to within two points of first place with three games remaining, including a Nov. 3 head-to-head contest that could decide the division.

Wash Family Construction captured its first win of the season when it defeated Mr. Bones BBQ 1-0 Oct. 19. Jacob Talucci scored the lone goal of the game to give Wash the victory.

In Division II action last week, Panoramic rolled past West Coast Surf Shop by a 5-0 score Oct. 23 behind four goals from Dylan Joseph. Tyler Pearson completed the scoring for Panoramic with one goal.

Panoramic defeated Sparks Steel Art 2-0 Oct. 21 behind a goal apiece from Joey Altuchoff and Tyler Pearson.

Sandbar edged West Coast Surf Shop 3-1 Oct. 21, getting three second-half goals, including two from Jason Partridge. Olivia Graham added the other goal for the Sandbar. Ethan Bertrand notched the lone goal for the Surf Shop in the loss.

Harcon Corps. rolled past Wash Construction in Premier Division action Oct. 22. Julian Botero and Trevor Bystrom scored three goals apiece, while Max Miller added two. Austin Wash led Wash Family Construction with a pair of goals in the loss.

Harcon Corps. edged Mike Norman Realty 4-3 in Premier Division action Oct. 21. Julian Botero, Trevor Bystrom, Michael Duffman and Reina Glavan each notched goals for Harcon in victory. The realty team was led by a goal apiece from Helio Gomez, Chandler Hardy and Hunter Parrish in the loss.

Norman Realty got past Wash 5-4 Oct. 19 behind four goals from Chandler Hardy. Hunter Parrish added a single goal for Norman in the victory. Austin Wash led Wash Family Construction with two goals while Jake Parsons and Danny Krokroski each notched one goal in the loss.

Horseshoe news

Three horseshoe teams emerged from pool play Oct. 21 at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. The semi-final saw the duo of Jay Disbrow and Tom Skoloda narrowly defeat competitors Norm Langland and Herb Puryear 21-16.

In the finals, Norm Good and Jeff Moore edged out Disbrow-Skoloda with a final tally of 21-17.

Three teams also emerged undefeated from pool play Oct. 24. The semi-final saw the tandem of Jeff Moore and Hank Huyghe dismantle Herb Puryear and Tom Skoloda 21-5, which was highlighted by a pair of six-packs from Huyghe. The final was a see-saw match pitting Moore-Huyghe against Deb Rhodes and Langland.

Rhodes tossed one of her trademark “flops,” but was unable to overcome an early deficit, and a ringer from Moore wrapped up the match. The final score was 22-15 for a 5-0 match.

Play gets under way at 9 a.m. every Wednesday and Saturday at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Warm ups begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by random team selection. There is no charge to play and everyone is welcome.
