Action cycle controls indoor soccer action

After last week’s indoor soccer action, it’s pretty much game, set and match in the battle for first place in the Anna Maria Island Community Center’s summer indoor soccer league. Action Kawasaki Yamaha won two more games in easy fashion, defeating Ross Built 11-2 Aug. 2 and following that up Aug. 4 with a 15-4 thrashing of Sparks Steel Art.

The two blow-out wins give Action a 6-1-1 record and 19 points in the standings. After a pair of losses, second place Sparks Steel Art is 2-3-3 with 9 points, only 1 point ahead of Anna Maria Oyster Bar and Ross Built, who are tied with 8 points and a 2-4-2 record.

The action got started Aug. 2 when Anna Maria Oyster Bar defeated Sparks Steel Art 4-1 behind single goals from Gillian Cassidy, Seth Katzenberger, Shelby Morrow and Sydney Morrow. Gavin Sentman notched the lone goal for Sparks in the loss.

The second game of the evening saw Action K-Y roll past Ross Built with an 11-2 score. Javier Solgado, Nico Colacci and Michael Latimer each scored three goals, while Dylan Jospeh added two goals in the victory. Jean-Paul Russo and Sarah Quattromani each scored one goal for Ross Built in the loss.

Action K-Y rolled past Sparks Steel 15-4 to open Aug. 4 indoor soccer action. Latimer scored six goals and Colacci added four to lead the way. Joseph added a pair of goals for Action, adding to goals from Morgan Burns, Ben Conners and Solgado in the victory.

Carter Remelin led Sparks with two goals, while Lane Bowers and Sam Bieker each added one goal in the loss.

Ross Built edged Anna Maria Oyster Bar 4-3 in the second game of the evening behind three goals from Andrew Ross and one goal from Aiden Grumley. The Oyster Bar received single goals from Brooke Capparelli, Katzenberger and Morrow in the loss.

Playoffs loom in flag football

The regular season of the adult flag football season at the Center ended with three games played Aug. 5. Next up are playoff games Aug. 12 and Aug. 19, which will be followed by a Super Bowl game Aug. 20.

The Bills, having dropped four straight games, somehow held onto the top seed in the AFC where all three teams finished with 4-4 records. The Broncos will take on the Jaguars in the first playoff game Aug. 12 with the winner set to take on the Bills Aug. 19 for a chance to get to the Super Bowl.

The Giants will play the Bucs in the NFC playoff Aug. 12 with the winner taking on top-seeded Vikings Aug. 19.

The action Aug. 5 saw the Bucs overcome a slow start to defeat the Jaguars 19-6 behind a tremendous defensive performance by Bobby Gibbons. Gibbons scored two touchdowns off interceptions for the Bucs, which also received a pair of interceptions and three flag pulls from Scott Eason and an interception from Billy Malfese. Shawn Kaleta added four pulls and Heidi Johnston chipped in with a quarterback sack. David Johnston led the Buc offense with 148 passing yards and one touchdown pass to Kaleta, who finished with 34 receiving yards. Eason added an extra point, while Robbie Bennett and Gibbons both finished with 44 receiving yards in the victory.

The Jaguars received 162 passing yards from Jason Sato and 104 receiving yards from Dustin Swain on offense, but five interceptions helped keep them off the scoreboard. The Jaguars’ only touchdown came when Clay Orr intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown. Other defensive standouts for the Jaguars included Sato’s eight flag pulls and a quarterback sack from Monica Simpson in the loss.

The Broncos evened their record at 4-4 thanks to a 36-18 victory over the Bills. Robert Cornell completed four passes for 112 yards and three touchdown passes to lead the Broncos, which also received touchdown passes from John Pace and Mike Walter in the victory. Kevin Austin led all receivers with 94 yards and two touchdowns, while Brent Moss added 52 receiving yards and a touchdown. Cornell and Pace both added touchdown receptions for the Broncos, which also received extra points from Shandi Austin, Denise Brigg and Pace in the win.

The Bills were led by Scott Dell’s 133 passing yards and one touchdown pass to Ryan Hogan, who finished with 76 receiving yards. Nate Talucci and David Bishop both had interception returns for touchdowns, while George Imes added an interception to go along with a team-high four flag pulls in the loss.

The Vikings outlasted the Giants 38-26 in the final game of the evening behind 242 passing yards and five touchdown passes from quarterback Paul Kurtz. Phelps Tracy was on the receiving end of four touchdown passes and finished with 109 receiving yards. Todd Zawistoski added 98 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the victory. Jordan Pritchard with three flag pulls and an interception and Chris Joseph with three flag pulls led the Viking defense.

The Giants received 198 passing yards and four touchdown passes from quarterback Tyler Bekkerus. Former Manatee High School soccer player Emily King led all receivers with 113 yards, including a pair of touchdown receptions and an extra point. April Jonatzke added a touchdown reception and 23 receiving yards, while Mark Anderson added a touchdown and an extra point in the loss. Bekkerus and Jeremy Jackson led the defense with four flag pulls each in the loss.

Islander travels with national team

He doesn’t wear a team uniform and his view of the game is always from the sidelines, yet Island resident and Coastal Orthopedics & Sports Medicine president Arthur Valadie, M.D., plays a vital role in the Bradenton-area’s U.S. Soccer success.

The U.S. Soccer U-17 and U-16 men’s national teams are part of a full-time residency program at the IMG Soccer Academy at IMG Academies in Bradenton.

Dr. Valadie travels as team physician for U.S. Soccer, responsible for treating sport-related injuries, as well as educating athletes on how to avoid them.

Valadie is with the U.S. U-17 men’s team this week in Columbia, South America, for a tournament.

 "It’s essential to nurture the athletic development of these young athletes,” said Dr. Valadie. “It is the priority of the medical team to keep these athletes healthy and on the field so they can continue to develop world-class skills.”

Dr. Valadie’s credentials also include service as sports medicine physician to the Pittsburgh Pirates and Manatee Community College, as well as maintaining a large practice in Bradenton.

He specializes in sports medicine, arthroscopy, knee reconstruction and total joint replacement.

With the help of Dr. Valadie as injury-prevention goalkeeper, the U.S. teams plan to outlast and outplay their opponents, as they keep their eye on the prize — a chance to compete in a FIFA World Cup Championship.

Volunteers needed

The Longboat-Lido-St. Armands Keys Chamber of Commerce is planning an inaugural Longboat Key Triathlon. It will be Oct. 24, and they’re looking for volunteers — eight captains to supervise in either the running, biking or parking areas.

If you want to get an up-close and personal view of the race itself, then volunteer as a running or biking captain. As a captain, you will be responsible for the volunteers who help direct the athletes to stay safe and on course.

The parking captain will be in charge of volunteers that direct and manage vehicles, athletes and audience members. This is a morning-only job and once the cars are all parked, this captain can enjoy the race, or assist in other areas.

If you would like to be a captain or volunteer, e-mail Rhonda Coblentz at financialcoach1@verizon.net, Dawn Mims at dmims@longboatkeychamber.com, or visit the event website at www.longboatkeytri.com.

Horseshoe news

Only two teams managed 3-0 pool play records during Aug. 7 horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall horseshoe pits and were left to battle for the day’s bragging rights. The team of Larry Livrago and Tom Pechous defeated Jay Disbrow and Hank Huyghe 24-17.

Two teams came out of pool play with undefeated records and battled it out for first place during Aug. 4 horseshoe action. The team of Tim Sofran and Larry Livrago edged Sam Samuels and Hank Huyghe 22-17.

Key Royale golf news

The ladies of the Key Royale Club played a nine-hole, individual-low-net golf game Aug. 3. Joyce Brown took home the top score in Flight A with a 3-over-par 35. Four shots back in second place was Diane Miller, while Penny Williams finished in third place with a 40.

Frankie Smith-Williams grabbed the top spot in Flight B with a 1-over-par 33. Jane Winegarden, Markie Ksiazek, Sue Wheeler and Lois Biel were all one shot back in a four-way tie for second place.
