After finishing the fall 2011 MRL season in second place, the U18 SSM girls set a goal to win the spring 2012 MRL season. As a team this meant to finish undefeated and untied. So over the course of four weekends playing 9 games the U18 girls accomplished their goal of finishing the MRL season 9-0-0 and Champions. The first weekend (March 24-25) was a long bus ride to Lexington, KY to play three games in less than 24 hours. Game 1 SSM 4:1 Lexington with 4 goals from Darian Powell. Game 2 SSM 4:0 Indiana Fever with goals from Darian Powell (2) and Karina Fredette (2). The shutout was earned by Skyllar Hughes. Game 3 SSM 2:0 Greater Toledo with goals from Darian Powell and Karina Fredette. Stos Behle and Skyllar Hughes shared the shutout. Game 4 was a rare single game weekend at home (March 31) with SSM defeating Pacesetters of Ohio 3:0. Goals were scored by Amanda Goulet, Karina Fredette and Kaelyn Korte. Stos Behle and Skyllar Hughes again shared the shutout. The second weekend of (April 13-14) was another rare weekend of home MRL games. Game 5 on Friday the 13 th SSM defeated Dakota Rev 4-1. After going down 0-1 in the 16 th minute of the game, the Sabres fought back scoring four unanswered goals – Powell on the stroke of half-time and Civanni Moss, Powell and Patterson finished in the second half. In game 6 SSM then defeated Eagan Wave 3:0 with three second half goals from Fredette, Patterson and Powell. The final weekend (April 21-22) of the season was a trip to Hebron, IN. On a cool breezy Saturday morning Game 7 was SSM 3:1 Ohio Elite. All goals were scored in the first half by Darian Powell, Kennedy Ulrich and Ashley Boitz. Game 8 which was the second game of the day SSM 6:0 Evansville SC saw another 4 goal performance this time from Kennedy Ulrich. Moss and Powell rounded out the scoring. Game 9 was a very early 7:30 am start on a cold and breezy morning. SSM’s opponent St. Francis Fusion (IN) came into the game fresh not having played the day before. St. Francis proved to be the strongest opponent during the spring campaign. SSM went up 1:0 in the 22 nd minute on a Justy Linton header from a Civanni Moss corner kick. The joy was short lived though as St. Francis equalized 3 minutes later from an indirect free kick from 12 yards out. Karina Fredette scored the winning goal from a solo run in the 68 th minute. For the last 20 minutes of the game SSM’s superior play and fitness proved too much as they created several additional chances to put the game out of reach. “It was great to finish the spring MRL season as undefeated champions” exclaimed Head Coach David Linenberger. “The girls really rose to the occasion in this last game and showed we are a class above the rest. Their attitude and play was outstanding this whole campaign!” “This is the momentum we need to carry us into our State Cup run” said an excited captain Dani Patterson. “We’re going all the way this year!”

U18 Girls 2012 Spring MRL Champs
Both the U18 and the U17 Shattuck St. Mary’s Girls teams departed school earlier this week for their participation in the Jefferson Cup in Richmond, Virginia. The players and coaches came back early from their spring break to have a few training sessions before their 24 hour bus ride. The teams departed on Tuesday evening in order to get to Virginia with enough time to recover before their first game on Friday afternoon. Coach David Linenberger said “Traditionally we are a bit rusty coming off of our schools three week long spring break, but we always improve with each game at the Jefferson Cup.” The Jefferson Cup is a great event for the girls program, “last year we did very well as U17’s, so I hope that it will be the same this year.” This tournament holds even more importance because it is the first step in the preparation for State Cup in May. Despite the long bus ride, traveling to the Jefferson Cup gives the Shattuck teams the opportunity to face opponents outside of Minnesota and the surrounding area. According to Coach Linenberger, it is always a plus for the players to see the level of play through out the country from teams in different states. The coaching staff is excited to see where they are at this point in the year and how they stack up against the teams in the Jefferson Cup. Jefferson Cup U18 schedule: Group A 3/16/12: (4:20pm) SSM vs. Jersey United Spartans White (NJ) 3/17/12: (1:00pm) SSM vs. Arundel Vipers (MD) 3/18/12: (11:20am) SSM vs. Oakwood (CT) Jefferson Cup U17 schedule: Group B 3/16/12: (12:40pm) Ashburn SC Premier Gold (VA) vs. SSM 3/17/12: (2:40pm) Bethesda SC Storm (MD) vs. SSM 3/18/12: (9:30am) South Central Premier Select (CT) vs. SSM
