David Denney’s Turquoise team (2) battled Carl Dobbs’ Red team (0). Coach Denney summarized, ìIt was a battle from the start with two evenly matched teams fighting to advance in the tournament. Both sides saw numerous scoring chances destroyed by the other team’s defense. Almost every scoring chance turned into a counter-attack for the other team. This was the pace of the entire game. At the end of regulation time, the score was still nil-nil. It was then that two 5 minute overtime periods began with an even more fevered pace. The break finally appeared about 4 minutes into the first overtime period when a cross from Tyler Steen was expertly chested into the goal by Winston Sandifer. The ball found the net a second time with less than a minute to play by Tyler Steen coming in from behind the goalie to tap in a ball that had gotten loose. No scoring for red was reported. Coach Dobbs added, ìThis team has played really well this season and I am proud of them all. Micah Schanel, Caleb Anderson, Kendrick Carter, Gabe Johns, Dylan Turner, John Griffith, Shawn Kemp, Rachel White, Drew Pharis, Mary Meador, and Ethan Phillips all played great today.

Coach Dallas said, This team has played fantastic for me this season. I am proud of each and every one of them. UNDEFEATED CHAMPS! Coach Denney again summarized, Turquoise started this match energized from the win in the last match but also exhausted from the competition. The team worked well with a new formation meant to blunt Tangerine’s attack even though we hadn’t practiced it. This new formation left us somewhat weak in offense so we didn’t get a lot of scoring chances. Towards the end of the first half, we hit a bit of bad luck. Winston Sandifer picked up his second yellow card, resulting in a red card and was sent off the pitch. The rest of the team transitioned to a new formation and kept fighting to the very end. Our only goal in this match came from Tyler Steen late in the second half. We ended the season in second place with first going to a very strong team. Before I list players who played well, I would like to say goodbye to this team’s players that have played their last season with our league. Most will be too old to sign up next season. Amanda Denney, Tonya Michael and Ryan Tucker, you will be missed. Both Tyler Steen and Jesse Denney had a good showing today in the goal, Derrick Lau, Jonathan Pinzur, Hunter Sullivan, and Travis Carver played well in defense. Cody Lau, Amanda Denney, Samuel Thomas, Samantha Matthews, Tonya Michael, and Meredith Carr kept the pressure up in the midfield. Winston Sandifer, Ryan Tucker, and Moses Pinzur had a good day in the offense position.
The MCSL, players, and parents thank’s everyone for supporting the league this season.
