West Coast Air ends Mr. Bones undefeated soccer season

West Coast Air Conditioning cooled off Mr. Bones BBQ with a 4-3 victory Nov. 9 in the last Anna Maria Island Community Center soccer league’s Division I game of the season. Mr. Bones came into the game having already clinched the Division I title so the only motivation left was for them to secure victory for an undefeated season.

Early on, despite liberal substituting of players, Bones surged to a 2-0 lead. Its first goal came in the 19th minute when Ally Titsworth threw the ball in to Cory Wash along the right sideline. Wash carried the ball past one defender before unleashing a rocket from 18 yards that found the far corner of the goal for a 1-0 lead.

A few minutes later, Nicole Botero almost extended the Mr. Bones lead when she got loose up the right side, but her shot clanged off the right post to keep WCAC within a goal.

Sean Edwards got into the scoring act for Mr. Bones in the 23rd minute when she picked off a weak goal kick and took it right up the middle to score and give Bones what seemed like an insurmountable 2-0 lead that it took into halftime.

The second half saw West Coast Air "kick it up a notch," which produced some good scoring chances right away. Max Marnie got loose up the left side, cut in and hit a promising shot, but Mr. Bones goalie James Hall dove to his left to make a strong save to deny Marnie. Broderick West finally broke through for WCAC when he beat one defender up the right side and blistered a shot from an impossible angle just inside the far post to pull to within 2-1.

Sarah Howard and Martine Miller teamed up to halve the score in the 45th minute. Miller received the ball along the left sideline 50 yards out. She then dribbled through and around three Bones defenders before passing inside to Howard at the right edge of the 18. Howard carried the ball forward before deftly sliding the ball past Hall to tie the score at 2-2 with time winding down.

West Coast continued to apply pressure, resulting in a throw-in deep in the Mr. Bones end. West took the throw-in and heaved it into the goal mouth where Miller headed it into the goal for a 3-2 lead.

West Coast extended its lead in the 53rd minute when Miller picked off a weak clearing pass and carried the ball in from the left and "roofed it" with a hard scoring shot for a 4-2 lead.

Titsworth gave the Mr. Bones faithful some hope with a goal in the 57th minute. She picked off a weak goal kick 25 yards out along the right sideline. She touched the ball once and launched a high shot that found its way into the upper left corner of the goal to pull Mr. Bones to within 4-3 with three minutes to play.

Unfortunately that was the last scoring chance for Mr. Bones, ending its hopes of an undefeated season.

Mr. Bones finishes the year atop Division I, joining Division II Island Real Estate and Division III Air & Energy as champs.

Next week: All-star results and final standings.

Congratultions to all of the players, parents and coaches for another great season of soccer at the Anna Maria Island Community Center.
