Rain puts damper on links, horseshoes, soccer, more
Players in the youth soccer league at the Anna Maria Island Community Center pressed on last week, albeit in a limited fashion due to almost 7 inches of rainfall Sept. 23-25.
Two games in the 11-13 age division managed to get played Sept. 27. The first contest saw LPAC cool off Waterfront Restaurant by a 5-4 score behind two goals each from Ryan Fellowes and Tyler Pearson. Jack Barnes added a goal to round out the LPAC scoring in the victory.
Hannah McCracken notched three goals to lead Waterfront, which also received one goal from Alex Rodriguez in the loss.
The Feast Restaurant remained undefeated and atop the division standings thanks to a 5-1 victory over Jen Crady Massage. Joe Rogers and Michael Latimer scored two goals each and Abbey Achor notched one to lead The Feast to victory.
Jack Groves scored the lone goal in the loss for Jen Crady Massage.
After two weeks of play, the standings in the AMICC adult soccer league are balanced. Three teams — Sato Real Estate, Florida Discount Signs and Slim’s Place — are undefeated and tied for first in the standings. Agnelli Pool & Spa and Island Pest Control are at 1-1, stuck in the middle of the table, while Wash Family Construction, Island Gourmet and LaPensee Plumbing are 0-2 and tied for last place.
The season is young, the players are not and the games are unpredictable, so anything can happen.
The fields dried out sufficiently to get in three adult soccer matches Sept. 26.
The opening game of the evening saw Island Pest Control slip past Island Gourmet 4-3 behind two goals from Teddy Louloudes and a goal each from Greg Ross and Steve Oelfke. Dave Greene made 19 saves in goal and Tony Frudakis added an assist in the victory.
Adam Bujarski scored twice and Tim Tedesco added a goal to lead Island Gourmet, which received 10 saves from Nate Talucci in the loss.
Florida Discount Signs defeated Wash Family Construction 5-2 behind three goals from Brent Moss and a goal and an assist from Ryan Moss. David Moss made 11 saves in goal and Ed Moss — yes, the Rev. Ed Moss of Crosspointe Fellowship — added an assist in the win.
Aaron Parkin and Mike Brusso each scored one goal for Wash Family Construction, which also received an assist from Chris Yavalar and seven saves from Will Case in the loss.
Slim’s Place rolled to an easy 7-1 victory over Agnelli Pool & Spa in the evening’s final game behind two goals from Josh Petit and a goal and two assists from Eric Pullen. Scott Eason, Robbie McLaughlin, PJ Smargisso and Nate Coleman each added single goals for Slim’s Place in the victory.
Joey Ciasullo scored the lone goal for Agnelli Pool & Spa on an assist from Lyn Clarke, while Frank Agnelli made nine saves in the loss.
Center basketball continues
Much like the adult soccer league, the basketball standings are balanced. Southern Greens and Beach to Bay Construction are on top with 2-0 records, while the Sun and Waterfront Restaurant are both at 0-2. Bowes Imaging Center and Gator Man Pools are in the middle with 1-1 records at this early juncture in the season.
Southern Greens opened up Sept. 24 action with a 75-70 victory over Bowes Imaging Center behind the scoring of Brandon Hartwig, who knocked down five 3-point shots on the way to a game-high 27 points. Joe Combs added 13 points, Justin Jones scored 11 and Brittany Hartwig finished with 10 points in the victory.
Antwaun Jackson had a monster game for Bowes Imaging Center, finishing with 25 points, 20 rebounds and seven assists. Matt Ray added 22 points and 10 rebounds while Jason Mickan finished with 11 points.
Gator Man Pools defeated the Sun 73-63 behind the one-two scoring punch of Scott Eliso and Aaron Dudukes. Eliso scored 25 points, while Dudukes finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Brandon Osmond chipped in with 17 points and 10 rebounds in the victory.
Andrew Turman scored 23 points and Eric Gledhill added 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Sun, which also received 15 points from Caleb Earhart in the loss.
Sean Hubbard scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Beach to Bay Construction to a 55-38 drubbing of Waterfront Restaurant. Robert Serrano scored 12 points and Jordan Demers added 11 points for Beach to Bay in the victory.
Brandon Kern scored 13 points for Waterfront, which also received 9 points from Richard Fosmore and 8 points from Matt Dwyer in the loss.
Sept. 25 horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall horseshoe pits was rained out, but Sept. 28 was dry and the team of Hank Huyghe and Dom Livedoti earned a come-from-behind 24-20 victory in the final match of pool play to earn the day’s only 3-0 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 all are welcome.
Key Royale golf news
Rain washed out golf plans on the links at Key Royale Club, but the club women were undaunted. They managed to get in some action— Wii competition at the home of one of the players.
Kris Landkammer had a chipin, while Tootie Wagner and Fran Barford each managed birdies in Wii play.
