Soccer season settles in at Center field

The 2010 recreational soccer season is officially under way at the Anna Maria Island Community Center with games being played every night of the week and some Saturday matches.

Though it’s early to track trends and prognosticate which is the team to beat, it’s apparent that the Premier Division for ages 14-17 is going to be a dog fight. That age division got off to an exciting start Sept. 20 with a back-and-forth battle between Wash Family Construction and the Beach Bistro. WFC outlasted the Bistro by a 9-8 score behind Austin Wash’s four goals and three goals from Daniel Pimental. Elijah Clay-Chapman chipped in with two goals in the victory for WFC.

Beach Bistro was led by Julius Gomes, who matched Wash with four goals of his own, while Max Miller added two. Samantha Latimer and Hunter Parrish completed the scoring with a goal apiece.

The second Premier game of the week also was decided by one goal, but was contrasting in style. The Sept. 23 contest between Beach Bistro and West Coast Surf Shop ended in a 2-1 victory for the Bistro as Julius Gomes scored a pair of goals to help the Bistro even its record at 1-1. Chandler Hardy notched the lone goal for the Surf Shop in the loss.

Autoway Ford jumped to an early lead in Division I (ages 12-13) standings on a pair of victories. Autoway opened its season with a tight, 5-4 win over Mike Norman Realty Sept. 22 behind a pair of goals from Sydney Cornell. Francesca Parkin, Neil Carper and Henrik Brusso each notched single goals for Autoway in the win.

Lauren Sapienza led Mike Norman with two goals while Logan Reiber and Michael Duffman each added one in the loss.

Autoway Ford took on The Gathering Place Sept. 23 and came away with an easy 5-1 win behind three goals from Henrik Brusso and two from Neil Carper. The Gathering Place received its goal from Blaine Jenefsky in the loss.

Division II for ages 10-11 looks to be competitive with three of the four teams earning victories in the first week of action. The game of the week had to be the 7-7 tie between Sparks Steel Art and Southern Green Sept. 22. Southern Green was led by Michael Latimer’s five goals and two goals from Reese Helvey.

Tyler Yavalar’s four goals paced Sparks Steel Art, which also received two goals from Dylan Joseph and one goal from Brooke Capperalli in the tie match.

In other Division II action, Mr. Bones BBQ opened its season with a 6-4 victory over Wash Family Construction Sept. 20 behind two goals apiece from Ben Connors and Jake Miller. Leo Rose and Nicole Sewall completed the scoring with one goal apiece in the victory.

Wash Family Construction received a goal apiece from Gavin Sentman, Madison Gunn, Michel Datolli and Nico Colleja in the loss.

Sparks Steel Art earned its first victory of the season Sept. 24 in a 3-1 decision over Mr. Bones. Tyler Yavalar notched a pair of goals and Dylan Joseph added one goal in the victory.
Willow Cooper scored the lone goal for Bones in the loss.

Southern Green kept its division pace with Sparks, thanks to a 6-3 win over Wash Family Construction Sept. 24. Michael Latimer was unstoppable, scoring five goals to lead Southern Green, which also received one goal from Jean-Paul Russo in the victory.

Wash Family Construction received a goal apiece from Nico Colleja, Madison Gunn and Gavin Sentman in the loss.

Jessie’s Island Store earned its first of the season victory when the team rolled past Connie’s Landscaping by a 4-0 score in Division III action Sept. 24. Hannah McCracken, Jack Barnes, Daniel Sentman and Gerardo Serrduo each scored a goal for Jessie’s in the victory.

Connie’s Landscaping was led by goalie Corbin Greg, who made several strong saves to keep Connie’s within striking distance in the loss.

Fran Maxon Real Estate defeated Jessie’s Island Store Sept. 22 behind two goals apiece from Taro de Haan and Josh Class. Allie Connelly added a single goal to complete the scoring for Maxon.
Jessie’s was led by Gerardo Serrduo’s single goal in the loss.

Horseshoe news

Two teams emerged from pool play with the required three victories Sept. 25 and were left to battle it out for the championship during horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Tom Skoloda “walked” all over the team of Jeff Moore and Jay Disbrow by a 21-6 score.

Sept. 22 horseshoe action saw only the team of Barb Dudley and Norm Good emerge with the prerequisite three victories and they were the day’s outright champs. The team of John Johnson and Sam Samuels took second place on the day.

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 everyone is welcome.
