On a rainy Sunday morning, the U18YS boys sealed their place in the Minnesota State Cup Final. This group of players will be defending their U17 State Cup Championship against the same St. Croix team that they beat in the 2011 finals. The Sunday morning State Cup Semi-Final game started out slow against a well organized MTA squad. Both teams were feeling each other out and trying to get used to the conditions. Shattuck’s Neal Usry had a quality change ten minutes into the game, but saw his effort just go wide of the post. MTA controlled the last ten minutes of the first half, but were unable to score and the teams went into halftime tied at 0-0. After talking over a few tactical changes at halftime, SSM came out in the second half dominated from the beginning. After a handful of unsuccessful corner kicks, and chances on goal, Emil Gonsalvez broke the deadlock in the ’75 minute. Gonsalvez shot out of the midfield crowd to get his head on a lofted ball from Lenny Kusina. Gonsalvez was able to flick his header past the on rushing MTA goal-keeper. After defending hard for the next six to seven minutes, Neal Usry was able to put the game out of reach with his goal in the ’82 minute to put Shattuck up 2-0. Jose Ojeda finished off the scoring for Shattuck in the ’89 minute with his right footed bending shot. The U18YS team will play in the State Cup final for the second year in a row in Isanti, MN. They will be facing a St. Croix team that also went undefeated in group play and scored the same amount of goals as SSM did in their group games. The State Cup final is scheduled for June 2nd at 9am.
