Alanna Dunks

From the Coach: Alanna has been a field player majority of the time she has been on my team, but this past week she stepped into the goalie position for us full time. Alanna had many incredible saves throughout our 6 games this past week. Alanna made three diving saves in our tournament that helped us advance to the championship!

Christian Knauss

U12 Boys

From the Coach: Christian stepped up to the plate by playing solid defense for the team instead of his usual forward position.  He's always ready to play any position to help bolster the team in the best possible way during any match.  His versatility creates an awesome attacking force while also providing the stability in our toughest fights.  Christian never gives up, even in a lost cause, and he plays to the final whistle giving his all in every game. 

Eli DePouw

U12 Boys

From the Coach: We were missing Mycah as our center back and captain of the defense and very quickly I knew we needed to make an adjustment on defense.  I moved Eli from his normal outside mid-field position to a center back where he played extremely well.  We solidified the defense and  provided both the physicality and aggressiveness that we needed back there.  He stayed very organized and understood the concept of pressure and support very well and supported his teammates to take away many opportunities of our opponents.  Eli had an excellent game, especially not normally playing this position.  He stepped in and played so well you would have thought this was his normal position.  Great job Eli and way to help the team where it was needed.

Evan Capelle
|
U13 Boys

From the Coach: Evan has consistently been our best wing defender this year.  After playing in an attacking role primarily in the past, he embraced the defensive role this year and has thrived at it.  I am constantly moving him to face the teams best winger, who is usually a lot bigger then Evan.  That does not matter, his ability to read the play and intercept passes is unique.  When his opponent does get the ball, rarely do they get around him.  His speed, tenacity and body positioning put him in position to steal the ball.  Then he initiates our attack with effect passes.  Finally, his offensive back round allows him to make great attacking runs from the back and whip in some amazing crosses.  Great job Evan

Brady Lambrecht

U15 Boys

From the Coach: Brady has taken ownership of the back line for the defense of the team.  He is able to spot patterns of attack from the opposition and quickly warns the rest of his teammates of the dangers.  He commands his other defensive comrades to retreat for overhead balls and to march forward when they have the attacking advantage.  His ability to take notice of whats going on around him has help solidify his teammates assurance of stability and proven to be a huge asset.

Sam Perry

U11 Girls

From the Coach: Sam does an incredible job managing the back line. She stepped up in our game to shut down a few of the opposing teams very quick players. Sam never fails to step to the ball and win it! She created quick transitions in our game with distributing the ball out of the center. Sam made a huge impact in our last game with her quick thinking and work ethic.

Michael Turriff
U17 Boys

From the Coach:  Michael did a great job in helping us play out of the back this past week across five total games played. He was very strong in defense down the left hand side in each game, while also maintaining great composure on the ball to help us build into the midfield and create chances going forward. Great work Michael!

Cassidy Baciak
U11 Girls

From the Coach: Cassidy played the full 60 minutes in the goal and had an amazing diving save to keep us ahead and give us the win. She is a player that doesn't like to spend an entire game in the goal, but she is always willing to STEP UP when we need her and Tuesday she did!

Max Page
U16 Boys

From the Coach:  Max did a great job for us at left back this weekend, making it difficult for opposing wingers to develop any rhythm going forward due to his solid 1v1 defending, as well as his willingness to get forward and join the attack; the latter of which helped him score two fantastic goals in our first game against Rush Chicago. Congrats Max! 

Colton Setzer
U12 Boys

From the Coach: During the Allouez game, we had Colton follow their best player to either side of the field.  He completely shut him down and took them out of their offensive rhythm.  He knew it would be a tough challenge against a good player and Colton was up to it not giving any opportunities to them to get going.  Excellent defensive effort and locking down our defense in a shutout victory.

Keegan Lindahl
U11 Boys

From the Coach:  Keegan played nearly the whole game for us at sweeper this past week, and was the anchor of the backline that stopped a ton of opposing counter attacks throughout the game. He also did a great job of playing balls into the midfield to start our attacks, which made it a lot easier for us to keep the ball for longer periods of time. Way to go Keegan!

Liz Walton
U11 Girls

From the Coach: Liz stood out in our game by shutting down the quickest player on the opposing team. She did an excellent job of denying the player the ball. Liz also did a great job communicating and helping the team transition.

Javier Barajas
Payton Woldt
U11 Boys

From the Coach: Liam and Brayden were rock solid once again for us last week. As our center back, Liam was calm and collected the entire match, and was in complete control of his back line. Liam distributed well, and wasn't but once caught out of position. He challenged the aerial balls well, and won his challenges when he engaged. Brayden, as a defensive mid, was outstanding as well. He held his position, won his challenges, and consistently played out of pressure. Brayden and Liam have risen to every task that they have been presented with this season, and we are very impressed. Keep up the great work, Liam and Brayden! 

Garrett Schneider
U17 Boys

From the Coach: Garrett was the anchor of the back line this week, and did a great job of keeping everything organized both at the back and in midfield. He made some timely tackles to stop opposing counterattacks and was able to find the forwards' feet with his play out of the back on multiple occasions. Nice job Garrett!

Ryan McNerny

U11 Boys

From the Coach: Ryan is our GK. I nominate Ryan as co-defensive MVP for this week because of a sequence of events which occurred in our league game. Ryan, who is always  solid for us, made an unusual mistake which resulted in the other team scoring to even the score 1-1. Last week, there was a lot of discussion about mental toughness, and releasing frustration on the fly so that we can always be 100% focused while the game is being played. Ryan demonstrated this practice perfectly and his decision to do so was the difference between winning and losing this game. Ryan quickly refocused and made two tough saves, then distributed a perfectly placed punt into space which resulted in our game-winning goal. Very impressive, Ryan! Keep it up. 

Isabella Logue
U12 Girls

From the Coach: Bella has always taken the pitch with a aggressive defense in mind. The past few games she has been focusing on not only winning the ball but also distribution afterwards. Wednesday she was able to put all the pieces together. Bella was challenging on 50/50, air balls and anyone that came into her area. Bella also supported her teammates which resulted in only having 3 shots against. Bella was assisted by Adah, Gabby, Dubs, Mallory and the rest of the team. Congratulations Isabella

Mycah Beckett
U12 Boys

From the Coach: Mycah player outstanding defense all season and especially in our game this past week. He is our captain on defense keeping us organized and leading the communication. It allows me to interchange players as needed and we stay composed and play equally as well no matter who I put alongside Mycah. He is a difference maker for us making many critical plays even if it doesn’t show up in all the stats. 

Liam Husmann
U11 Boys

From the Coach: Liam has been learning the center back role this year without a minute of experience back there prior. Last week Liam played the full 60 minutes from that position, and he made it look easy. He stood tall, made low-risk decisions while playing out of pressure and led by example. Both Coach Nick and I thought he was really outstanding. Great job, Liam

Nathan Piotrowski

U13 Boys

From the Coach: Nathan plays the 6 for us and this weekend he did a fantastic job in that role.  He was constantly breaking up the opponent’s attacks and trigger our own attacks.  His ability to win the ball and quickly play the ball wide with either foot allows us to be unpredictable in our attacks.  This position Nathan plays does not get the headlines, but is a key component to any good squad.  Keep it up Nathan!

(TOP PERFORMER)
Gabby Courtois

U12 Girls

From the Coach: Gabby has been a part of our strong defensive unit. Only allowing 4 goals in 6 games this season. Gabby is able to give support along the back line giving confidence to the other defenders as they know Gabby has their back. She has developed the ability to take the ball out of the air and spark our attack with an accurate distribution or on the dribble. Gabby has been able to turn fouls in the middle of the field into scoring opportunities with her long services. Gabby stays calm cool and collected to play smart and aggressive. Her ability to be patient and win the ball rather then just poking away has been a stable for our success this far. I look forward to Gabby's development as we continue our season. Congratulations Gabby!

Brady Shanda
U11 Boys

From the Coach: Yes, this is the same game he's been nominated for offensive MVP. After netting two goals up front as a striker, Brady was moved to the center back position for the remainder of the game. It was here where he had the most impact on the game, in my opinion. He stifled the opponents consistently, held a high line, communicated with his teammates, played simple in possession and won high-pressure balls out the air. Great week Brady!

Cassidy Baciak
U11 Girls

From the Coach: Cassidy really stepped up for the team in the goal in our championship game against Neenah Avalanche! As our keeper she was solid with 9 saves in the game and 3 in our shoot-out! She also was our end kicker to give us the win!! Cassidy likes the goalie position, but also loves to play the field so it was great that she was willing to step up and play the keeper role for the entire game!! WAY TO GO Cassidy!!

(TOP PERFORMER)
Joel Rosner

Logan Nycz
U12 Boys

From the Coach: Several of our players had outstanding defensive efforts through out the Flatgrass tournament and made this nomination difficult in a good way. But with our team going to a penalty kick shootout in both the semi-final and championship games, I need to nominate our two goalies who played fantastic and each held our opponents in check. Both Joel and Logan made some incredible saves and helped transition our team into offense in every game. They rotated games played, each playing a significant role in our success in the tournament. Great job keepers.  

Carter Seaborn
U11 Boys

From the Coach: Carter did a great job in goal for us this weekend, making some fantastic saves in goal to keep games close in crucial moments. He also created a lot of chances when playing on the field, and gave a great assist with a free kick on our goal against Norski!

Liam Husmann
U11 Boys

From the Coach: Liam got tossed into the outside back and center back position based on how Coach Nick and Coach Andy evaluated his skill set. He stepped into the task confidently and it showed. You would never have known it was his first few games playing that position. He was organized, held the correct positioning, won his challenges, communicated with his teammates and made the right decisions when the ball was on his foot. Great job, Liam! 

Simon Zulewski
U16 Boys

From the Coach: Simon did a great job at right back this weekend where he was very rarely beaten 1v1, and really helped us create width in possession going forward. He also was constantly getting into the box to get on the end of crosses, which eventually paid off for him when he scored in our victory over Neenah!

Brandyn Brozek
U17 Boys

From the Coach: Brandyn was part of a goalkeeping team that allowed just one goal through four games this weekend, and came up with a crucial save in the PK shootout during our championship game to help us win the title over Oshkosh!

Brady Paul
U15 Boys

From the Coach: Brady really stepped up to the plate by playing goalkeeper.  He was nervous at first but soon played a vital role in keeping his team in contention with tough opposition.  His teammates soon recognized his ability as goalkeeper and praised him on his spectacular performance on helping us get a clean sheet in one of our games.  


DEFENSIVE Player NOMINATIONS 4/29/19 - 5/5/19

(WINNER)
Chase Solem
U16 Boys

From the Coach:  Chase stepped up for the team to play goalie.  Unfortunately, we do not have a goalkeeper for this team.  Chase volunteered to take on that role moving forward and in his first two games in goal for us this weekend did a fantastic job.  He made some key saves in both games that allowed us to compete with the teams.

Carter Bona
U13 Boys

From the Coach: Carter was the glue to our defense this weekend.  His willingness to chase down runners and long balls allows others to move into offensive positions quickly.  In our 2nd game, he did a wonderful job challenging the opponent’s creative player and making it difficult on him all game.


Defensive POTW Nominations 10/22/18 - 10/28/18

Alexis Burkel

U19 Girls

She also showed versatility defensively and played well both in the center and right/left back. She stopped several fast breaks and through balls to help ensure our success defensively.

Katelyn Stadmueller

U14 Girls

From the Coach: Playing as a center back and defensive mid, Katelyn was an incredible asset for us this weekend. There were very few 50/50 balls that she was unable to get to by using her speed and physicality. She was constantly out battling the opponents, and making crucial tackles on the ball to stop their attacks. The best part of her defending this weekend was being able to win the ball, and then complete the next pass to an open teammate. She helped start numerous attacks for our team, and communicated specific instructions that helped the players around her the whole weekend.

Ashley DeCleene

U14 Girls

From the Coach: Playing the majority of the year as an outside mid/forward, Ashley stepped up and played a lot of minutes as an outside back for us this weekend. Her knowledge of the game really showed as she was always in a great position defensively, and was able to read the situation well in advance. Using her ability and tendencies of an attacking player, she was also able to be a part of our offense throughout both games and contributed to our ability to possess the ball and go forward.

Eli DePouw

U12 Boys

From the Coach: Oshkosh has a very strong center mid-field and Eli played very well throughout our game on Sunday.  He looked for ways to control possession and create opportunities for his teammates.  Many of the little things that Eli did throughout the game do not show up in the stats, but there were absolutely critical to how well the team played this weekend.  Eli was a consistent presence that played aggressively to challenge and win the possession while also being quick to support our offense.  Eli played very well this weekend and should be proud of how he helped the team.

Braden Kelnhofer

U13 Boys

From the Coach: Braden has continued to grow as an offensive player this season.  His ability to get behind defenses with timely off the ball runs continues to improve game by game.  A hard thing for forwards to do is receive the ball with back to goal and be able to turn and connect with others.  As Braden has continued to improve this facet of his game our offensive ability as a team has improved.  Finally, his ability to beat players one on one is a testament to how much time he puts in on his own at home doing ball work!  Keep it up Braden!

(TOP PERFORMER)
​​​​​​​Bailey Bartlett
U11 Girls

From the Coach:  Bailey came to play on Tuesday!! She scored her first goal of the night 3 minutes into the game from a great cross from Madi Hacker.  She really turned it up in the last couple games and it is great to see!! She also had an assist for Madi Hacker and another goal later in the game.  ​​​​​​​

U11 Girls

From the Coach: Ruby stepped up in our tournament this weekend! She created many opportunities on goal by winning the ball. Ruby also created many opportunities for teammates. She kept high spirits throughout the whole tournament and lead by example! 

Owen Fergus
U12 Boys

From the Coach:  In the last few games I have moved Owen from our lone striker to an outside midfielder where he has played more aggressive and created a lot of great opportunities.  He has also been able to use his fantastic shot in space to create some outstanding goals.  It has been great to see Owen really excel and have it pay off with a 2 goal game on his only two shots on goal.  Outstanding performance Owen and keep up the great play.

Carter Borley
U15 Boys

From the Coach:  Carter has become the capital factor for his team.  His dominance in midfield creates stability, versatility, and dept for both the offense and defense.  It's become a natural instinct for Carter to instantaneously charge forward when he's spots scoring opportunities and to retreat when he detects potential threats from the opposition.  He makes the difference by being in position where his team needs him the most and Carter gladly offers his best for his team.

Andrew Cartier

U13 Boys

From the Coach:  Andrew scored both goals for us on Saturday in our 2-0 win.  Both goals were a result of his relentless effort on the field and pressuring the opponent.  All weekend, Andrew made early diagonal runs that allowed us to get behind the opponent’s backline.  He trusts his teammates will play the ball on time and makes the proper run in anticipation of this action.  Great job all weekend Andrew!

Amelia Hoff

U11 Girls

From the Coach:  Amelia typically plays defense for our team, but we needed an aggressive player to help our attack. Amelia stepped up and helped put a lot of pressure on our opposing teams defense. She did an incredible job attacking down the line and getting the ball across the field to set up her teammates for opportunities on goal. 

Cooper Witte
U12 Boys

From the Coach:  Cooper is a very powerful forward and creates a lot of chaos for the opposing team's defense.  Every time he has the ball, the other team is quick to surround him but does little to slow him down.  Along with his ability to strike, he is mentally aware of his teammate's location on the field and distributes the ball to the players with the best chance to help the team score.  He is capable of scoring all the goals, but his selfless acts quickly puts him as the player to count on from the rest of the team.

Owen Spang
U16 Boys

From the Coach:  Owen had himself a weekend at the Puma Illinois College Showcase, scoring seven goals and chipping in two assists across four total games played. He was too much for opposing teams to handle with his driving runs from the midfield, and was the focal point of our attack as we looked to build play down the width and back across goal. Nice work Owen!

Teya Bordini
U11 Girls

From the Coach: Teya had a goal and an assist for us in a big game.  She did a great job of staying wide, cut around the left defender and crossed the ball to Brooke for a great goal! Earlier, Teya played great positional soccer and was in the right spot when Brooke battled for a ball in the box.  Teya stayed in her position and was able to knock it in the goal when it popped out of all the chaos! 

Max Skurka
U12 Boys

From the Coach:  Max has the opportunity to create chances for his teammates.  He has been so focused on providing those great assists that he has been in a small slump of scoring himself.  Max never complains and is always willing to help his team to succeed and this unselfish play was rewarded with a great goal against a very good Allouez team.  Max played well putting pressure on the defense and finding gaps to make good quality runs, ultimately scoring a great goal to get us on the board.  Great game by Max.

Kaidyn Hillesheim
U17 Boys

From the Coach:  KP's work rate in each game he played last week was fantastic, and was one of the driving forces behind our success. In addition, he tallied five goals and two assists this weekend at the Puma Illinois College Showcase, and was very difficult to handle for opposing backlines with his play in attack. Nice job KP!

Sophie Smith
U12 Girls

From the Coach:  Sophie stands out every week in our games. She created many opportunities for our team helping us get the goal we needed to win the game. Sophie made a huge impact in our game by attacking the defense from the outside of the field and sending multiple balls through their defense to create opportunities for our forwards. 

Tam Baenen
U11 Boys

From the Coach:  Tam started at forward for us against Neenah and made an immediate impact by getting on the ball and helping us get forward. He made it difficult for the defenders to play out from there own half, and took some great shots as the game went on that really tested the goalkeeper on multiple occasions. Nice job Tam!

U11 Boys

Javier Barajas
Payton Woldt

U11 Boys

From the Coach:  Javier and Payton offered a 1-2 punch in our league match last week.  From the center midfield role, Javier did an excellent job of getting the ball to the outside while using minimal touches.  As an outside midfielder, Payton consistently got around his marker and was able to serve in multiple crosses. Both of these tactics were focal points of our training sessions last week, and it was nice to see it demonstrated in the game.  Javie finished with two goals and Payton one.  Great job, boys! 

Charlie Eggers
U17 Boys

From the Coach: Charlie usually starts at center back for us, but he moved up to forward after we went down 1-0 and made an immediate impact. He was always working to get on loose balls and really helped us pressure their back line, which eventually led to them scoring an own goal and getting us back into the game. Charlie always leads by example with his willingness to work for the team, and it showed again this past week!

Josie Smerchek

U12 Girls

From the Coach: Josie provided the assists we needed to win this week. Josie stood out as she was able to control the entire right side of the field. She was chosen as the offensive player because of her unselfish play. Josie was able to take on defenders to gain position and serve the ball on a platter for the rest of the team. Her relentless efforts caused many scoring opportunities and drew countless fouls. Josie was supported by the rest of the team with a highlight on Rylee Spindler whose calm cool approach turned into one of the best decisions I have seen on the field which earned he an assist as well. Josie and Rylee both show that offense is a team effort!

Anthony Garcia

U12 Boys

From the Coach:  Anthony had an outstanding game in Oshkosh. Our team has a small offensive struggle so I moved Anthony to forward where he scored three goals and created a lot of additional opportunities for his teammates. He immediately made an impact and put pressure on the opposing defense giving us an immediate advantage. Anthony had a great game and certainly led us in our win over Oshkosh. 

Zoe Fenlon
U11 Girls

From the Coach: Zoe always comes to practice ready to give 110% effort. She leads by example. Zoe had two impressive goals in our last match! 

Brady Shanda
U11 Boys

From the Coach:  Brady was a workhorse for us yet again this past week. He netted us two more goals, including a late game winner. What we are seeing is an improvement in Brady's movement. His work ethic has always put opponents under pressure, but now that he is utilizing diagonal runs more frequently he is finding himself in spaces behind the defense where he can really thrive. Keep up the good work, Brady!

From the Coach: Natalie has 11 goals so far this season along with a hand full of assists. She has a great work ethic on the field and takes on additional responsibilities to help her teammates. It would be enough for a player to have the most goals to earn a player of the week honor, but Natalie does more by making the players around her better with communication, support and encouragement. Natalie has set a high standard as we start the spring season and is still not satisfied with just maintaining. I look forward to the continued development this year! Congratulations Natalie.

Danika Apple

U14 Girls

From the Coach: Playing as a center or outside forward, Dani was always giving the opposing defenders something to worry about. Using her strength, and speed she was able to hold up plays allowing her teammates to join the attack, and also able to get in behind the defenders and get chances for herself and teammates. She battled both games this weekend against tough physical opponents and was rewarded with a goal with a beautifully timed run and excellent finish into the bottom corner.

Shannon Walsh

U19 Girls

She was consistently finding space to help her teammates find an easy passing option to get out of pressure, and combined incredibly well with the players around her. Her determination to be first to every loose ball, and composure on the ball helped us to build out of every situation she found herself in. Her patience and adjustments as the game progressed paid off as she was able to play a perfectly weighted and angled pass to get an assist for her team.

Dan Squire

U12 Girls Team Manager

From the Coach: As our fall season comes to a close with a 2nd place finish in the Ice Age Tournament I reflect back through the season and all of the accomplishments we have been blessed with. Our team finished the league play with only 1 goal against. We scored 37 goals in 8 games with 13 different players scoring. The most remarkable thing is the ability of our team to comprehend the game. From high pressure to support defense, from switching the point of attack to committing defenders we excelled in so many ways. Trying to pick an individual player this final week is next to impossible. Everyone contributed so much to this success, so in place of an Individual player player I would like to nominate our beloved manager "EL CAPITON" Dan Squire. Dan worked miracles working with my difficult schedule and the players needs to put everything together. He kept everyone informed of time and location changes, arrival times, Jersey colors, team dinners, hotels and availability. Dan was the most organized manager and biggest supporter of the team. It is because of all his hard work behind the scenes that we as a team were able to focus on the beautiful game and succeed. Thank you Dan for a wonderful fall season and look forward to the spring. The U12 Girls join me in awarding you the offensive and defensive player of the week! Congratulations Dan, and congratulations ladies with an amazing season!
