Indoor soccer keeps kids cool, competitive
Indoor soccer action continues at the Anna Maria Island Community Center with three games Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
Though Mr. Grout is clearly the top team in the 10-12 age division with a 5-0 record, Pink & Navy Boutique — the only all-girl team — is tough competition.
The Boutiques tied LaPensee Plumbing 3-3 July 19 in an exciting game that went down to the last second. Both teams battled hard throughout the game. First-half goals by Ryan Fellowes and Carlos Cruz matched goals by Brooke McIntosh and Sydney Morrow for a 2-2 tie after 25 minutes of action.
The second half was more of the same with good scoring opportunities for both teams. Emma Monuese was outstanding in goal, especially in the 10th minute, when she blocked a Robbie Fellowes shot, only to have to come off her line and smother the rebound that went straight to Cruz on the left side of the goal.
Ryan Fellowes gave LaPensee Plumbing a 3-2 lead 5 minutes later, when he got loose up the right side and finished with a strong right-footed shot.
With time winding down, Pink & Navy took advantage of a three-line violation by LaPensee to tie the score at 3-3. Gillian Cassidy hammered the indirect kick on goal where it deflected off a LaPensee Plumbing defender for a goal.
Both teams continued to battle to the end when with 35 seconds left to play, a three-line violation by LaPensee Plumbing occurred. The Boutiques hustled to set up the indirect kick and Morrow managed to unleash a rocket that appeared to graze LaPensee Plumbing goalie James White’s hand, but the referee ruled no contact as the final buzzer sounded on an exciting game.
Other members of Pink & Navy Boutique include Shelby Morrow, Morgan Burns, Grace Bowers, Brooke Capparelli and Jessica Schafer.
