Ties show competitive nature of soccer

Sydney Cornell flies up the court with the ball during indoor soccer action at the Anna Maria Island Community Center.

Three out of the four indoor soccer league games played last week ended in ties, showing just how competitive the teams are in the 9-12 age division of the Anna Maria Island Community Center Summer Indoor Soccer League.

The only victory of the week came when Action Kawasaki Yamaha defeated Anna Maria Oyster Bar 3-1 in the second game of the evening July 19.

Sydney Cornell opened the scoring in the fourth minute when she found some space up the left side and found the back of the net with a nice left-footed shot for a 1-0 Oyster Bar lead.

Action tied the score in the 12th minute when Javier Solgado cleared the ball up the middle to Michael Latimer. Latimer carried the ball right at Oyster Bar goalie Seth Katzenberger, who came off his line to deny Latimer. Unfortunately for Katzenberger and his teammates, Ben Connors swept in and deposited the loose ball into the vacated goal to tie the score 1-1.

Action Kawasaki Yamaha took the lead late in the first half when Dylan Joseph toe-poked a soft shot that scooted underneath the Oyster Bar goalie for a 2-1 lead.

The teams battled back and forth in the second half, but Action was the only team that managed to find the back of the net in the second half. It occurred in the 32nd minute when Solgado picked off an attempted clearing pass at mid-court and finished far post to complete a 3-1 victory for Action Kawasaki Yamaha.

The opening game of the night saw still undefeated Sparks Steel Art forge a 2-2 tie with Ross Built. Ryan Fellowes notched a pair of goals to lead Sparks, while Aiden Grumley and Andrew Ross scored a goal apiece for Ross Built.

Ross Built and Action Kawasaki Yamaha battled to a 4-4 tie July 21. Ross Built, which played most of the game with the minimum five players, took a 2-0 lead, but couldn’t hold onto it.

Jake Ross led all scorers with three goals, while twin Andrew Ross added one goal. Action was led by Javier Solgado’s two goals and a goal each by Nico Colacci and Zach Stewart.

The second game of the evening saw Sparks Steel Art battle to a 2-2 tie with Anna Maria Oyster Bar. Ryan Fellowes and Robbie Fellowes each notched single goals to lead Sparks, while Gillian Cassidy and Sydney Cornell scored for the Oyster Bar.

Adult playoffs loom in flag football

With only two regular season games left to play, playoff seedings are still up in the air in both the AFC and NFC divisions of the AMICC NFL adult flag football league. The Bills currently lead the AFC, but with two straight losses and an upcoming game against second-place Jaguars, first place is not exactly set in stone.

The Vikings hold on first place in the NFC is also up for grabs, but it’s a little more complicated than the AFC race. The Giants would need to defeat the suddenly hot Bucs in their July 29 match, and follow that with a victory over the Vikings Aug. 5 to take the top spot in the division.

Speaking of the Bucs, they opened their season with four straight losses, including a 53-6 loss to the Jaguars July 7. Since that embarrassing loss, they’ve won two straight games, including a 25-13 victory over the first-place Vikings July 22. Quarterback David Johnston had a huge game, completing 18 of 27 passes for 238 yards and four touchdown passes. Two touchdown passes went to Robbie Bennett, who finished with 88 receiving yards, while Bobby Gibbons finished with 84 receiving yards, a touchdown and an extra point. Heidi Johnston completed the Buc scoring with one touchdown reception in the victory.

The Vikings were led by Paul Kurtz, who threw for 131 yards and a pair of touchdowns. One went to Jordan Pritchard, who finished with 74 receiving yards and an extra point. Lance Plowman added 39 receiving yards and a touchdown. Plowman and Pritchard paced the Viking defense, finishing with six and four flag pulls respectively. Pritchard added an interception in the loss.

The second upset of the evening came when the Giants rolled past the first-place Bills 21-7 behind a defense that produced three interceptions, a safety and three quarterback sacks. Emily King led the Giant defense with three flag pulls and an interception that she returned for a touchdown. Jimmy Thomas also had three flag pulls to go along with a safety and three quarterback sacks, while Tyler Bekkerus had a pair of interceptions and three flag pulls in the victory.

Bekkerus played a big role offensively for the Giants, completing 14 passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns. Jeremy Jackson was on the receiving end of one touchdown and finished with 66 receiving yards, while Mark Anderson added 48 receiving yards, a touchdown and an extra point in the victory.

The Bills were led by Scott Dell’s 128 passing yards and one touchdown pass to Chris Jones, who finished with 54 receiving yards and an extra point. George Imes led the Bills on defense with four flag pulls, while Brian Moorhead and Jones each finished with three pulls.

The Broncos got back on the winning track with a 25-6 victory over the Jaguars behind a total team effort that saw four players complete at least one pass and there were touchdowns by another four players. John Pace completed seven passes for 59 yards and one touchdown, while also scoring an extra point. Mike Walter completed five passes for 47 yards and a touchdown, while Robert Cornell completed three passes for 50 yards and one touchdown, while also adding a touchdown reception. Brent Moss led the Bronco receivers with 47 yards and a touchdown, while Denise Brigg added 37 receiving yards and an extra point. David Zaccagnino finished with 31 receiving yards and a touchdown and Shandi Austin added 12 receiving yards and a touchdown to round out the Bronco scoring.

Cornell paced the Bronco defense with a pair of interceptions and one flag pull, while Moss and Zaccagnino each added an interception in the victory.

The Jaguars didn’t mount much of an offensive attack, finishing with 51 passing yards and 53 rushing yards. Clay Orr led the way with 25 yards on the ground and 23 receiving yards, while Dustin Swain added 30 rushing yards. Orr scored the only touchdown for the Jaguars when he returned an interception for a touchdown.

Flight B winner was Kris Landkammer with a 2-under-par 30. Terry Westby and Meredith Slavin tied for second with matching 34s, while Dorothy McKenna finished alone in third place with a 35.

Three teams emerged from pool play during July 21 horseshoe action. Jerry Bennett and Tim Sofran eliminated Steve Grossman and Sam Samuels 21-8 to advance to the finals. In the finals, Bennett-Sofran defeated Bob Heiger and Norm Good 21-14.
