western-pennsylvaniaWestern Pennsylvania 4 First Baptist Christian 3

Playing in three tough road games in three days - ouch! We lost the first two road games 2-1 and 3-1. On the third day, traveling to First Baptist, our goal is to make sure that they do not clinch the second seed and host the first round of playoffs. We found ourselves down 3-0 at the halftime but we are not about to wave the white flag. We clawed and scratched our way back in and scored four goals to their none, winning this game, 4-3. With this victory, we ended up .500 in the league play and forced First Baptist to travel in the first round of playoffs. We have a week of "rest and recuperate" before embarking to Marie Philip School for the third annual ESDAA Division I Soccer Tournament. (Contributed by Head Coach Val Wojton)

stmarysChristian Academy of Western New York 3 St. Mary's 0

The Bison travelled to North Tonawanda yesterday afternoon to face off against the Eagles from the Christian Academy of Western New York (CAWNY). This was our first of two meetings against CAWNY this season. Once we arrived to the game it was clear that the boys were going to get a little dirty. The field was completely water logged with giant standing puddles all over. The conditions were borderline non playable but with no other dates on the calendar to make up a postponed match we were forced into action.

Both teams seemed to struggle in the first half of the contest. Any time an attempt was made to advance the ball into the other team’s offensive zone, it would sink into the ground and not move. The Eagles as well as the Bison couldn’t dribble or make any type of fluid pass to set up scoring chances. The score was 0-0 at halftime and both benches were trying to figure out a strategy that would help get their squad on the board.

In the second half of play, both teams spread out the field in an effort to keep the ball out of the middle where the majority of water was. The Bison had some solid chances to score but all of our shots either went wide or over the cage. Unfortunately, our opposition took advantage of their opportunities and were able to sneak a few past our keeper. As the game wore on, we were forced to take some more offensive risks by pushing up the field and adding an extra offensive attacker. That however left our defense exposed to some odd man rushes by the Eagles which in turn resulted in a 3-0 loss. The Bisons will learn from this experience and use it when we play CAWNY again next week Tuesday at our house. This will be our last tune-up before we host the D2 ESDAA soccer tournament next weekend. (Contributed by Head Coach Bryan Booke)

rochesterRochester Rapids Homeschool 7 Rochester 2

Powerhouse Rapids took on RSD on our pitch for a non-league game. The Rapids had a copious amount of substitutes compared to our two. With 80 minute games, we knew this may be trouble.

The first half was extremely even as both teams were playing aggressive. For the first time this season, Rapids was able to score against us first. However, within just a few minutes later, off a free kick by Bode Aggas, Walshvelo was able to tie the game 1-a-piece. We were looking to go into halftime at a tie, but Rapids was able to sneak a beautiful shot in our net during the waning minutes of the first half.

In the second half, Rapids were able to pull away. RSD battled tough and was able to tack on one more goal, but it was not enough. We had several opportunities to make the game competitive, but we just couldn't finish on goal.

This was an ugly game for our team as we had five offsides, too many missed opportunities to score, we shot ourselves in the foot and did not focus on the game. We finally got it together for the last 10 minutes of the game for a win. Today, we will play against Lexington. (Contributed by Head Coach Curt Hayward)

marie-philipMarie Philip 3 Covenant Christian 1

Marie Philip School made a trip to Peabody to face our league opponent, Covenant Christian Academy. The last game, we lost to them so we played with a different formation hoping to have a good game. We got two nice goals in the first half. We played really well, especially with our goalkeeper Dakota Rochette. He made a lot of amazing saves. MPS defensive lines had done a splendid task stopping CCA offensive lines, frustrating them as they tried to seize a goal. We got an opportunity of having a nice goal from a penalty kick to finish the game with a 3-1 score. (Contributed by Head Coach Jason Cserny)

stmarysSt. Mary's 2 Rochester 2

The Bison played host to our Western New York I-90 rival Rochester School for the Deaf Tuesday afternoon. Our team started off the match looking a bit lethargic having had a four-day Columbus day weekend break from soccer. Unfortunately, it took us about 15 minutes to truly find our feet. Luckily, Christian Lawrence had one of his best games of his career in goal and was able to limit the damage to just one goal from the Wildcats in the first half of play.

Once our boys were finally able to shake off the rust, we began to gradually spread out the field and establish a counter attack. That said, no matter how much effort you put forth, sometimes its having a little luck on your side that can sway momentum in your favor. In an effort to clear the ball out of our defensive zone, Ryan Brzezinski launched a kick that covered three-fourth of the soccer field. Although the kick wasn’t intended to be a shot, it found its way over RSD’s goal line to knot the score 1-1 at halftime. Both teams and the officials stopped for a solid minute just to appreciate what everyone had just witnessed. The official said in all of his years he has never seen a goal from that distance.

In the second half, the Bison used that spark of luck to take it to the Wildcats. Another goal by Nick Barrus gave us a 2-1 advantage on the scoreboard. With five minutes remaining in the game, it was clear that Rochester was playing with more sense of urgency and with the help of an extra attacker on offense, they were able to even up the score at 2-2 with a head ball off a corner kick. Both clubs had a few more chances to try and win the game but both the teams defenses were up to the task and didn’t allow another goal. The game ended in a 2-2 tie. After the match, both teams walked away knowing that in a few weeks they have the opportunity to play one another again at the annual ESDAA soccer tournament. It will then be determined who has the better team this season. (Contributed by Head Coach Bryan Booke)

Ryan Brzezinski: 1 goal

rochesterSt. Mary's 2 Rochester 2

As always, this game turned out to be a great game for the fans. It was a barn burner to the entire end. RSD dominated the entire game in regards to time of possession, shots on goal, and opportunities on goal (e.g. Penalty Kicks).

However, SMSD were stubborn individuals and were in the game the entire time. RSD came out firing first and was able to score relatively quickly with some great give and go passes between Bode Aggas and Alexander Michalek. Michalek found the back of the net from Aggas' pass.

Few moments later, SMSD's defender, booted a shot 70 yards that somehow found the back of our net to tie the game 1-1. RSD failed to capitalize on a penalty shot before halftime and we stood at a deadlock, 1-1 when time expired in the first half.

In the second half, RSD was again, the aggressors and was controlling the ball and rhythm of the game. Midway through the half, RSD was awarded another penalty kick, but failed to capitalize. A few moments later, their star player, Nick Barrus took a shot 40 yards out that found the back of our net. With RSD down 2-1 with only a few minutes left, we were in trouble.

However, Thomas Coates who was playing an exceptional game on defense was also playing exceptionally well playing offense too. He was literally playing the entire field (and since it was a small field, he was able to do this). He helped us earn a corner kick near the end of the game. Bode Aggas sent a beautiful shot in front of the goal, and Michalek was able to earn his second header of the season to tie the game 2-2. The game ended 2-2. (Contributed by Coach Scott Lipitz)

stmarysFalk 3 St. Mary's 2

The Bisons took on the Stanley G. Falk school in another NFCAA league battle. Our goal was to have a better showing this time around against the Falcons who dominated our first match. The coaches preached hard work all week during practice and the boys efforts paid off with a competitive game.

We started off quickly by striking first and second with a few blasts from Adnan Abdi to take a 2-0 lead. It was clear that we had caught our opponent a little off guard in the first half and showed them that we weren’t the same team they had played against prior. At halftime, the Falk school made some necessary changes which included replacing their keeper and moved some players into different positions.

Unfortunately, the Bison didn’t adjust well and were put back on our heels for the majority of the second half. It wasn’t long before the Falcons had tied the game and were threatening to take the lead. We were able to weather Falk’s attack for the most part with the help of Steven Bajdo who was able to get into his first game of the season. However, with 4 minutes remaining in the match, our opponent was able to break the tie and take a 3-2 advantage. With barely anytime remaining, we were unable to counter on the scoreboard and ended up losing by a goal. (Contributed by Head Coach Bryan Booke)

Oregon School for the Deaf cuts football, but new soccer program keeps Panther pride strong

By Nick Krupke

oregonSALEM, OR (KPTV) - Due to dwindling numbers of players and escalating miles for road trips, the Oregon School for the Deaf had to let go of football. The school gained soccer, though, bringing Panther Pride to the pitch.

OSD traded out eight-man football for co-ed futbol in 2016. After nearly 70 years of pigskin, Friday night lights are missed in the Panthers Lair, but the students are finding the new excitement in the new sport.
