Indoor soccer heats up Island Center

As always, the action at the 12th annual Anna Maria Island Community Center Christmas Indoor Soccer tournament is fast and furious as 21 teams battle it out in four age-gender divisions for their respective titles.

The Braden River Rage look to be the team to beat in the U12 female division after thumping the Island Strikers 16-0 in their opening game. They await the winner of the Lemon Drops and the Snow Angels with the winner needing to defeat the Rage twice to capture the trophy.

The U10 Rage also advanced to the winner's bracket finals by defeating the Blue Dolphins 7-2 to open the tournament. They followed that win with a sound 5-0 win over the Mini-Hurricanes in the semifinals. The Mini-Hurricanes, mostly 7-year-olds, won their opening match 5-0 over the Sparkling Lady Bugs. The Mini Canes will need to defeat the Blue Dolphins for another shot at the traveling Rage squad.

The U14 boys competition has the Braden River Yams taking on IMG United in the winner's bracket finals. The Yams defeated the Island Girls 4-2 in their opening match and followed that win with a 4-2 victory over Purple Haze. IMG United put the Mash Unit in triage thanks to a 17-4 blitzkrieg in round one. United followed with a 10-1 victory over the Bangers in round two.

The Mustangs, 7-1 winners over the Islanders in their opening game, await the winner of the Manatee Magic versus the Patriots in the winner's bracket finals. The Magic defeated the Rage 6-0 in their opening game, while the Patriots advanced to the second round via a bye.

Champions will be crowned by Wednesday, Dec. 21, so look for final results in next week's Islander sports.

Good 'great' in horseshoe competition

Norm "Six Pack" Good and Tom Rhodes emerged from a four-team playoff to capture the Dec. 14 horseshoe competition at the Anna Maria City Hall park. Good and Rhodes defeated Art Kingstad and Carl Sheatle in the finals, thanks to a "six pack" - consecutive ringers for six points - from Good that ended the game.

Good closed out every match with a six-pack to help his team to victory. Good and Rhodes bested the team of Bruce Munro and John Johnson in the semi-final match, while Kingstad and Sheatle advanced to the finals by defeating Bill Bartlett and Jerry Disbrow.

Play gets under way at 9 a.m. every Wednesday and Saturday in the park at Anna Maria City Hall. Warm ups 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

Nancy Grimme and Penny Williams each shot a four-over par 36 to finish in a tie for first in Dec. 13 flight AA golf competition at the Key Royale Club.

Roswitha Fowler, Nancy King, Dorothy McKinna and Grace Sayles each shot 34 to tie for first in flight A, while Mary Pat Swamy's 31 was three shots better than Marty Noakes and Jane Winegarden's 34 in flight B. Flight C winner was Sally Keyes with a 29 that was two shots better than Markie Ksiazek, who shot 31, and Eunice Wards, who finished in third with a 32. Terry Westby shot a 35 to win flight D by three shots over Pat Weingart and four shots ahead of Teddy Morgan.

Nell Bergstrom, Roswitha Fowler and Nancy Grimme won the team low-net competition with a score of 35, which was one shot better than the second-place team of Theresa Schuett and Marty Noakes.

Sara Falk, Sally Keyes, Teddy Morgan, Mary Pat Swamy and Penny Williams earned some bragging rights on the day with chip ins.
