Autoway Ford remains undefeated with 5-0 win

There were no major changes in any of the division standings during the last week of regular-season action for the Anna Maria Island Community Center Soccer League. ReMax Gulfstream Realty held onto its slim lead in Division I over LaPensee Plumbing, while the Sun maintained its lead and an unblemished record in Division II. Autoway Ford’s bid for a perfect season in Division III ended with a tie, but it still holds an insurmountable 10-point lead on second-place Air & Energy.

In other matters, the Center is hosting a Veterans Day weekend soccer tournament to close out the season Nov. 11-12. Teams will be seeded according to how they finished the regular season. In addition, all-star games will also be played over the weekend, including a 6-7 age group and a 7- year-old all-star game for instructional leaguers. Look for the complete schedule in next week’s Islander.

Autoway Ford defeated second-place Air & Energy 2-1 on Oct. 27 behind one goal apiece from Neil Carper and Robby Officer. Kalif Mora notched the lone goal for Air & Energy in the close loss.

Division II Cannons earned its second win on the season when it defeated West Coast Surf Shop 1-0 on Oct. 26. Hunter Parrish scored the lone goal of the game to lead Cannons to victory.

Ooh La La! Bistro continued its strong play as of late, earning a 2-0 victory over Americo Title on Oct. 25 in Division III action. Kiley Aldefer and Diana Pimental each notched goals for Ooh La La in the victory.

Island Real Estate received one goal apiece from Chris Pate and Daniel Pimental during its 2-0 victory over West Coast Surf Shop in Division II action on Oct. 24.

Division III leader Autoway Ford avoided its first loss on the season when the auto-team edged Ooh La La 2-1 on Oct. 23. Neil Carper notched both goals for Autoway Ford in the victory. Josh Zawistoski scored the lone goal for Ooh La La in the loss.

Anna Maria Island Little League news

A community organizational meeting for the Anna Maria Island Little League will be held at 6 p.m.

Friday, Nov. 3, at the West Manatee Fire Rescue Station No. 1. The meeting is open to all adult Little League enthusiasts residing on Anna Maria Island and the Manatee County portion of Longboat Key.

The primary agenda of this meeting is to vote in the new Little League board of directors.
Mark your calendars and plan on attending this important formation meeting. For more information, contact Center athletic director Andy Jonatzke at 778-1908.

Horseshoe news

Tom Rhodes and Herb Heesch were the outright winners of the Oct. 25 horseshoe competition at the Anna Maria City Hall pits as they posted the only 3-0 pool-play record. Herb Puryear teamed up with Sam Samuels to earn second place with a thrilling 22-20 victory over Cathy Stoltzfus and Steve Doyle.

Only two of eight teams advanced from pool play during the Oct. 21 horseshoe competition. Doug Yox and Jessie Brisson defeated

George McKay and Ron Pepka 23-19 to capture the duck-shaped trophy and bragging rights for the day.
Play gets under way at 9 a.m. every Wednesday and Saturday at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Warmups begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by random team selection. There is no charge to play and everyone is welcome.

Key Royale golf news

The Key Royale Club held its “stag day” nine-hole golf tournament on Wednesday, Oct. 25, with two shotgun starts in a two-best-balls-of-partners game.

The team of Ernie Hauser and Vince Fanton finished in a tie for first place with the team of Web Cutting and Ed Havlik after both teams shot a combined 54. Three shots back in a tie for second place were Quent Talbert and Bob Sayles and Gordon McKinna and Lew Winegarden. Winegarden also captured closest-to-the-pin on No. 8, while Larry Fowler earned that distinction on hole No. 3.

A record seven golfers chipped in, including Chris Collins, Don Ledford, Chuck Reed, Talbert, Sayles, Winegarden and Havlik. John Atkinson captured the individual low net with a score of 29.

The second shotgun start was similar to the first, in that there was a crowd at the top. Merritt Fineout and Russ Olson fired a combined 62 to tie George Hieber and Bob King for first place. Art and Bob Reppenhagen finished in a four-way tie for second place with Bob Dickinson and Omer Trolard, Gordy Lindstrom and Ralph Bassett, and last, but not least, Hugh Holmes Sr. and Adam Ksiazek with identical 65s.

Bassett won the closest-to-the-pin on No. 3, while Bob King got closest on No. 8. Bill Melvin and Jim Finn each had chip-ins, while Melvin also captured the individual low net with a score of 30.
