Island soccer season off to strong start

The Anna Maria Island Community Center recreational fall soccer season is officially under way and several league players already appear to be in mid-season form.

Panoramic forward Morgan Burns cuts in toward the Surf Shop goal despite an untied shoelace during soccer action at the Center.

Chandler Hardy has played two fall games and already has six goals to lead the Premier Division, while Trevor Bystrom managed to notch a hat trick in his only game to date. Sydney Cornell scored a hat trick of her own in Division I, while Aiden Grumley, Ethan Bertrand, Tyler Pearson and Emma Moneuse each had two-goal games in Division II action.

Speaking of Division II, Panoramic got off to a good start on the season, edging West Coast Surf Shop 2-0 on Sept. 22. Panoramic and the Surf Shop both had a fair share of scoring opportunities, but the Surf Shop was unable to cash in.

Panoramic was pressuring the Surf Shop defense early with some good passing. Brook Capparelli and Morgan Burns worked a give-and-go to perfection to spring Capparelli into a space where she found Dylan Joseph open on the right side. Unfortunately, his shot went wide of the goal.

In the 15th minute and with the Surf Shop scrambling on defense, an attempted clearing pass was picked off by Capparelli. She carried it up the right side before passing it inside to Joseph, who poked it past the Surf Shop goalie for a 1-0 lead.

Two minutes later, it looked as though Panoramic was going to add to its lead when Joseph picked off a goal kick, but his rocket went off the post for another Surf Shop goal kick.

Late in the half, Bertrand found some space for the Surf Shop before passing into the box to Clayton Wilkinson, but his shot was saved by the Panoramic goalie to preserve the 1-0 lead.

The second half saw the Surf Shop teammates push forward and carry the play a bit more, but in doing so they left themselves more vulnerable on defense. That strategy cost them in the 40th minute when Joey Altuchoff stole the ball and started a quick counter attack. He passed outside to teammate Pearson, who crossed it back inside to Altuchoff, whose shot beat the Surf Shop goalie near post to give Panoramic a 2-0 lead that would not be relinquished.

Grumley had a breakaway late in the game that looked promising, but Panoramic goalie Capparelli came off her line to clear the ball away and preserve the shutout victory.

In other Division II action last week, Sandbar defeated Sparks Steel Art 3-1 on Sept. 22 behind single goals from Christian Daniels, Jason Partridge and Leo Tilleli. Emma Monuese notched the lone goal for Sparks in the loss.

The same threesome was at it again on Sept. 23 when Sandbar edged Panoramic 3-2. Daniels, Partridge and Tilleli again notched a goal apiece in a match up of two strong teams. Pearson scored two goals to lead Panoramic in the loss.

West Coast Surf Shop defeated Sparks Steel Art 4-3 on Sept. 23 behind two goals apiece from Grumley and Bertrand. Monuese scored two goals and Nicole Sewall notched one to lead the Sparks in the loss.

Autoway Ford opened its Division I season on Sept. 24 with a 3-1 victory over Mr. Bones BBQ. Michael Latimer scored two goals and Nicco Calleja added one in the victory. Cooper Hardy notched the lone goal for Mr. Bones in the loss.

Ross Built rolled to a 6-0 victory over Wash Family Construction on Sept. 25 behind a hat trick by Sydney Cornell. Jake Ross added two goals, while brother Andrew also chipped in one in the victory.

Mike Norman Realty rolled past Wash Family Construction 6-2 in Premier Division action on Sept. 21. Chandler Hardy paced Norman with three goals, while Helio Gomez, Hunter Parrish and Logan Reiber each added one goal in the victory. Wash Family Construction was led by Garrison Clark’s two goals in the loss.

Harcon Corp. edged Mike Norman Realty by a 5-4 score on Sept. 23 behind three goals from Trevor Bystrom and two from Julian Botero. Norman was led by Chandler Hardy’s three goals and one goal from Hunter Parrish.

Horseshoe news

Three teams advanced from pool play during Sept. 26 horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall horseshoes pits. The team of Hank Huyghe and Jeff Moore drew the bye and watched as Sam Samuels and Norm Good thrashed Debbie Rhodes 23-6. Samuels and Good then turned their attention to Huyghe and Moore and came through with a tense 22-17 victory to claim the trophy. Good ended the match with a “six pack” double ringer.

The Sept. 23 games saw Sam Samuels draw Steve Grossman as his playing partner. It paid off as they were the only team to go 3-0 in pool play and thus were the day’s outright champs. Jeff Moore took second place with a 2-1 record.

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 men played an 18-hole, low-net-of-partners game on Sept. 23. Bob Kral and Vince Mercadante matched the 9-over-par 137 carded by Bob Jorgensen and Don Ledford to tie for first place.

The Key Royale Club women played a nine-hole, individual-low-net golf game on Sept. 22. Joyce Brown grabbed flight 1 bragging rights with a 1-under-par 31 to edge second-place finisher Cindi Mansour by one stroke.

Flight 2 winner was Dorothy McKinna who carded a 3-over par 34 to edge Frankie Smith-Williams, Sue Wheeler and Lois Biel by one shot.

The Sept. 18 coed game was a wacky, throw-out-the-worst-hole game. The team of Joyce Brown, Terry Westby, Gordon McKinna and Larry Fowler carded a combined 108 to claim bragging rights for the day.

The men played a nine-hole, individual-low-net game on Sept. 14. Larry Fowler carded a 3-under-par 29 to win first place by one stroke over second-place finisher Vince Mercadante.
