First win for Shady Lady

ANNA MARIA – After two halves of youth soccer action, team AMI Coconuts could not put a point on the scoreboard against The Intuitive Foundation squad in the 8- to 10-year-old recreational soccer league at The Center of Anna Maria Island.

The Coconuts team put up a strong fight and played hard, but they were not strong enough to beat the top-ranked team in the 7-0 game last Tuesday night.

Initiative’s Parker Svoboda, Gunnar Maize and Bailey Shenbaum lit up the field with their strong play. Maize added to his stats with two assists in the game.

Defensively, Silas Whitehead continued his strong play in the goal with seven saves. Teammate Sawyer Leibfried had four big stops of his own in week six soccer action.

Game two ended in a 0-0 tie between Solid Rock Construction and Isola Bella Italian Eatery. The game was a defensive battle with the goalkeepers earning their stripes as experienced players.

Isola’s Carson Long had six stops in the game, while his counterpart Elijah Roadman made five nice saves for the Solid Rock team.

Despite a yellow penalty card assessed to Ismael Guerrero, the Shady Lady Horticultural Services team won its first game last week against team Emily Moss Design. In the 3-2 victory, Leo Tyler scored two goals and teammate Joseph Caballero put a point on the scoreboard for the hardworking team for the W.

Shady Lady’s goalie Easton Knock made five solid stops against the Emily Moss offense.

Titus Moss and Aden Mould each scored a goal for the Emily Moss Design team. Defensively with eight saves, Miles Moss helped keep his team in the game.

With one regular season game to be played on Tuesday, May 14, the season championship match-up remains up in the air. Tuesday’s results in the last three games leading up to the first round of playoffs will determine the single elimination bracket.

The Intuitive Foundation will challenge Shady Lady Horticultural Services after their first win of the season. Isola Bella Italian Eatery faces Emily Moss Design and Solid Rock Construction plays team AMI Coconuts.

Six teams have their eyes on the prize to be awarded to the winner on Tuesday, May 28 at the end of the league’s championship game.
