DEFENSIVE PLAYER NOMINATIONS

Mycah Beckett
U13 Boys

From the Coach:  Mycah has always been a strong leader on this team and a player that the boys will always watch and follow what he is doing.  He has a hardworking and positive attitude at every practice and game, which makes him very coachable.  I tested that this fall, by moving Mycah to multiple positions throughout the season and within games.  Mycah always responded well and did exactly what was asked of him.  That was fully demonstrated in our last game this weekend, where I started him as mid-fielder and he played very well, but then moved him to defense to shore things up and preserve a shut out.  Mycah played both roles extremely well and was vocal and communicated to his teammates his vision of the field.  Great job Mycah on a great game and fantastic season!

Connor Grochowski
U13 Boys

From the Coach: Connor through out the year has been working to develop as a goalkeeper. This weekend he demonstrated that growth as a keeper in a very exciting game where his team took the win. Connor at several important times in the game showed great sacrifice to keep the ball out of his goal. At one point Connor took his skills and made two blocks in one play after being shot right off a rebound. It was truly exciting watching you play in the goal this past weekend, nice job Connor!

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

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.

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

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!

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.

David McKenna

U14 Boys

From the Coach: During a match where our team had most of the possession early in the game, David was key taking advantage of this possession. He created opportunities on the wing again and again that would help us get into the final third which David then used to go one on one with his opponents beating them and then playing the ball inside the box for our team to be set in front of goal. Making the right decisions with the ball is critical to scoring when inside the final third and David accomplished this well every time he was on the ball. David's effort and work during the weeks practice showed this game, nice job David!

Blake Empey

U11 Boys

From the Coach: Throughout a battled game in this weekend’s tournament, Blake never stopped working for his team. When the ball was on his foot he constantly looked for options and when it came to making the decisions he did it confidently whether it was finding his teammates or having a run at goal himself. If he did end up making a mistake and losing the ball he always made sure he was the first to recover it. He continued this the entire game and even got a goal as a reward. Congrats Blake, on two great games this weekend and your goal!

Landen Arnstad
U13 Boys

From the Coach:  Landen played outstanding all weekend.  Controlling the middle of the field for us and distributing the ball to his teammates.  He controlled a lot of the attack and maintained possession for our team to help us play our best games of the season.  Landen has proven himself as a leader on the field and was rewarded with two goals in two games this weekend before our tournament was cut short due to weather.  Excellent job Landen!

Braden Kelnhofer
U14 Boys

From the Coach: Braden as a striker in this weekend’s tournament game was able to show his skills on the ball as well as off the ball. Braden at times was seen comfortably receiving the ball under pressure and finding a way to turn forward and attack. He kept his cool on the ball and made decisions quickly. Braden more importantly, was continually making unselfish runs and giving his teammates options to move up the field either by losing his marks and using him as a target or using the space created to move forward. Thanks to Braden the team was able to constantly have more clear attacking opportunities. Well done!

Natalie Squire
U13 Girls

From the Coach: Natalie was on top of her game all weekend long scoring 2 game winners. 1 against a top State team and another against a top MRL qualifier. She was also able to tack on assists to continue building an amazing season. Natalie scored the game winner in our final game. She was able to win the ball at midfield when she started to transition into the attack. With players making runs Natalie maintained her dribble taking on the first defender then the second and the third and fourth. Natalie took on and beat 7 MRL qualifier defenders and beat them all in a single attack but did not stop there. She then was able to compose herself take a peek at the goal and strike a shot from the top right corner of the 18 into the far left side net. After battling all weekend I did not know where she was able to summon the energy and effort to accomplish this feat

Defensively Andrew also did his job and supported on pressure to win the ball back early when needed. Good work all the way around Andrew.

Gabby Courtois

U13 Girls

From the Coach: Gabby plays our 6 or defensive midfielder. She has migrated to this position as we moved to the big field. Her tenacity and skill have trapped our opposing teams on their half. Gabby not only controls the gap but also takes our set plays as she can already consistently serve an accurate 30yd ball. This weekend Gabby was able to step up the field and play through a strong tackle that took her to her knees, keep control and strike a shot that looked like Carley Loyd. It was the game winner that she was able to tuck in the upper left corner from 25yds out. Gabby has been instrumental in both sides of the game a true double threat. Abby and Kira were able to score in our second game to keep our 1st place standing in state league.

Kiera Washington
U12 Girls

From the Coach: Kiera is by far the most flexible player on our team. She can move through many positions and make plays on and off the ball. Kiera created multiple goal scoring opportunities for us this past weekend while playing forward. She has a drive that makes her coachable and exciting to watch. She took a leadership role on this weekend helping her teammates through the warm up and by being vocal during our game. 

Veronica Decker

U14 Girls

From the Coach:  Veronica was all over the field in our attack this weekend.  Over the two games she scored 4 goals and assisted on 2 others.  She also applied pressure to the opponents back line and caused them to turn over the ball in both games.  Their were several other girls that helped contribute to our success this weekend, but Veronica finished her opportunities and passed the ball to the far post when under pressure.  This allowed her to contribute on 6 of our 8 goals this weekend.

Natalie Squire
U13 Girls

From the Coach: This weekend we were able to win both of our State league games with an unwavering offensive attack. This was an amazing team effort that made it hard to select an individual. Natalie made a huge impact by winning the ball in the offensive half and distributing it to start the attack. Natalie was a part of the play in each of our 4 goals either directly assisting or starting the play off a turnover. Congratulations Natalie she was supported by our entire team with key mention of Olivia, Abby, Lacey with goals.

Kyler Havlik
U11 Boys

From the Coach: Kyler scored two goals for us this weekend, and was a real threat going forward in both games! He did a great job running at the back line with the ball at his feet and put in some dangerous crosses that created a lot of scoring opportunities for us. Nice job Kyler!

Erin O’Connor
U12 Girls

From the Coach: Erin has made a major impact in our offense since joining our team this season. She does a wonderful job opening up the field and creating opportunities on goal. She denies the opposing team opportunities to attack. I can move her through many positions and she adapts quickly making her a great asset to our team. 

Alina Harnowski
U11 Girls

From the Coach: Alina works so hard out on the field. She does an excellent job creating chances and making smart decisions going forward in our attack and is always the first one back to help support on defense.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Danika Apple

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.

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!
