Soccer's Bones take 'Panoramic' view at first place

It was an early-season match Oct. 3 of the Anna Maria Island Community Center Soccer League’s unbeatens. Mr. Bones, 3-0, and Panoramic, 2-0, battled it out for first place in Division II.

Mr. Bones won the game by a 3-2 score, though the game didn’t seem quite that close. Mr. Bones completely carried the play in the first half, but had trouble putting the ball past Panoramic goalie Joey Altachoff, who played a stellar first half between the pipes.

Michael Latimer put pressure on the Panoramic defense from the start, dribbling past several defenders before deftly laying the ball off to teammate Ben Connors, who ripped a shot that had goal written all over it, only to see Altachoff make a diving save.

Moments later, the Bones received a corner kick, but the Panoramic defense had some trouble clearing the ball away from its goal. The ball eventually ended up at Latimer’s feet and he ripped a rocket from 15 yards, but again Altachoff was there to make the save and keep the game scoreless.

Mr. Bones finally broke through in the eighth minute when Ellie Leibe passed ahead to Latimer. Latimer dribbled to his right before cutting back to his left, where he unleashed a rocket that found the back of the net for a 1-0 Mr. Bones lead.

Mr. Bones added to its lead five minutes later when Latimer picked off a Panoramic clearing pass and dribbled up the right side, drawing three defenders with him. Latimer smartly crossed the ball to a wide-open Ben Connors, who one-timed the ball into the back of the net for a 2-0 Bones lead.

Panoramic halved the score in the 18th minute when Leo Rose won a 50-50 ball deep in the Mr. Bones end, dribbled left and found the back of the net with a nice left-footed shot to pull to within 2-1.

Panoramic, spurred on by Rose’s goal, raised its game and started pressuring the Bones defense. Tyler Yavalar found some space up the middle and dribbled in towards the Mr. Bones goal, but defender Gabby Gallo stepped in with a great tackle to deny Yavalar as the half came to a close.

Mr. Bones added to its lead early in the second half when Connors threw the ball in to Latimer, who unleashed a rocket that was blocked, but Latimer followed his shot and poked in the rebound for a 3-1 Mr. Bones lead.

Yavalar tried to answer for Panoramic on a breakaway, but Mr. Bones defenders Gabby Gallo and Kayla Thiel combined to tackle the ball away from him.

Mr. Bones almost added to its lead three minutes later when Cortni Wash threw the ball into Latimer. Latimer carried the ball in and fired a cannon of a shot that clanged off the crossbar. He chased down the ball and crossed it to Connors, but his shot was just wide of the goal.

Yavalar found some space up the right side and fired a rocket that caromed off the near post. Rose pounced on the loose ball and put it in the back of the net to pull to within a goal, but the final whistle blew 30 seconds later.
