AMICC soccer standings remain tight
The battle for first place is going to go down to the wire in all divisions of the Anna Maria Island Community Center Soccer League except Division III, where undefeated Fran Maxon Real Estate holds an eight-point lead and is the only team with a winning record.
Connie’s Landscaping and Jessie’s Island Store played Oct. 13 with the winner escaping last place and moving a step closer to a winning record.
Early on, it appeared that Jessie’s was going to earn its second win on the season as they forged a 2-0 first-half lead. Hannah McCracken got Jessie’s on the scoreboard in the 10th minute when she pounced on a rebound and knocked it into the goal for a 1-0 lead.
Five minutes later, William Bernet dribbled around and through the Connie’s defense to give Jessie’s a 2-0 lead that they took into the half.
Connie’s came out in the second half determined to get back into the game and it didn’t take long. Jaclyn Schlossberg found some space up the left side of the Jessie’s defense where she passed inside to Clayton Wilkinson, who knocked the pass into the back of the net to halve the score.
Jessie’s brought the ball right back at Connie’s defense and almost scored when McCracken fired a shot from the penalty spot, but Corbin Greg made a nice save.
Schlossberg again found some space and came in for an up-close shot, but Daniel Sentman made the save to deny Schlossberg and keep the score at 2-1.
With time winding down, Adra Dupuis passed the ball ahead to Schlossberg, who fired a shot that snuck inside the far post to tie the score.
McCracken gave the Jessie’s faithful fans hope when she got loose up the middle, but Greg came through with a kick to preserve the 2-2 tie.
