Rain ends, soccer season kicks into high gear
Finally, there was a full week of soccer action at the Anna Maria Island Community Center following two weeks of abbreviated play owed to a deluge of rain. With makeup games scheduled, the other football season is now full steam ahead.
Youth soccer games are played weeknights at the center, 407 Magnolia Ave., Anna Maria.
The standings are tight in the 8-10 age division with Beach Bistro and Island Pest Control sporting 1-0-1 records at the top, followed by Tyler’s Ice Cream and LPAC, both sitting at 1-1, while American Marine brings up the bottom at 0-1.
The Feast is in control of the 11-13 division with a perfect 3-0 record — five points ahead of second place Waterfront Restaurant at 1-1-1. LPAC follows at 1-2, while Jen Crady Massage is looking up in the standings with an 0-2-1 record.
The 14-17 division only two teams, and thus far Wash Family Construction leads the back-and-forth action over Jessie’s Island Store, 2-0-1 to 0-2-1.
Last week, Jessie’s and Wash battled to a 4-4 tie. Nico Calleja scored three goals to lead WFC, which also received one goal from Carolyn Culinan. Jessie’s was led by Yuri Pereira, who notched four goals in the match.
The Feast made a strong statement Oct. 4 in the 11-13 division, dominating 9-4 over LPAC. Michael Latimer scored six goals to pace The Feast, which also received three goals from Joe Rogers in the victory.
The second game of the evening saw Jen Crady and the Waterfront battle to a 3-3 tie. Cameron Pasco scored all three goals for Crady. The Waterfront was led by Silas Banyas’ two goals and one goal from Hannah McCracken.
Beach Bistro and Island Pest Control battled Oct. 3 to a 2-2 tie in 8-10 division. Sean Rodriguez scored both goals for the Bistro, while Julius Peteriet and Javier Rivera each notched one goal to lead Island Pest in the tie.
Adult soccer continues
The center’s adult soccer league continued action Oct. 3 with four matches played. Sato Real Estate and Florida Discount Signs won their games and they share the top of the standings with 3-0 records. They’re followed by Slim’s Place and Agnelli Pool & Spa, both 2-1. Island Pest Control and Wash Family Construction are 1-2, while Island Gourmet and LaPensee Plumbing are still looking for a victory.
WFC earned a 3-0 victory in the first match behind two goals from BJ Grant and one from Aaron Parkin.
Agnelli Pool & Spa rolled past LaPensee 5-0 behind four goals from Omar Polar. Tyler Krauss added one goal and Lynn Clarke had an assist in the victory.
Florida Discount Signs shut out Island Pest Control 2-0 in the third match of the night. Brent Moss and Greg Moss scored one goal each, while David Moss made 15 saves in goal.
The final game of the night saw Sato record a 5-3 win over Island Gourmet. Josh Rio led the way with two goals, while Chris Circharo, Leslie Rio and Cory Wash each scored. Adam Bujarski, Tim Tedesco and Erin Vogel scored one goal each in the loss.
Steve Grossman and Dom Livedoti were outright champs during Oct. 2 horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall horseshoe pits after posing the only 3-0 record in pool play.
Oct. 5 action saw three teams garner 3-0 records in pool play, forcing a playoff. Hank Huyghe and Josh Slagh drew the bye into the finals and watched as Jerry Disbrow and Sam Samuels rolled past Tom Skoloda 22-4. Huyghe-Slagh then dismantled Disbrow-Samuels 22-11 in the finals.
Play gets underway 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.
