Blueger Dazzles … Quietly Minnesota State Freshman Came to U.S. Via Latvia by Ryan Lund/CHN Reporter At a glance, Minnesota State freshman Teddy Blueger may not be the most noticeable Maverick on the ice. Officially listed at 5-foot-11, Blueger is hardly the most intimidating specimen on the Mavericks’ roster, nor is he out to dazzle

Sagel and Melong On Team of the Week
It was a successful weekend back for both the boys and girls soccer programs at Shattuck-St. Mary’s. Two of the boy’s teams traveled to Milwaukee and Chicago to play in two Development Academy games, while the U18YS team had two friendly home games. The girls competed in the Jefferson Cup in Richmond, VA over the weekend.
Girls Review: Jefferson Cup In their opening game of the 2012 Jefferson Cup, the U18 girls took down Jersey United in convincing fashion, winning 5-1. After a three week spring break and four weeks since their last game, Coach Linenberger was very pleased with his teams performance. “We did well keeping possession and created numerous goal scoring chances. We could have easily scored 10-12 goals” said Linenberger. In their second game of the tournament, SSM came out against the Arundel Vipers and won another convincing game 4-0. According to Linenberger, “The second game of a three game weekend is always the most difficult and we were slow to start. We kept the ball and scored on the chances we created. We did well to get a shutout.” Playing a third game in three days, for the time since January, the Shattuck girls came out against Oakwood a bit tired and heavy legged. Oakwood, a strong team who won both of their first two games, put the pressure on Shattuck in the first half. “We had a good talk at half-time and really responded to play a very good second half. Though we lost 0-2, we played well, kept care of the ball, showed good fight, spirit and intensity” said Linenberger. Game #1 : 1-0 Powell (22. Graybill, M.); 2-0 Fredette (30. Moss); 3-0 Ulrich (49. Sparrman)3-1 (60.); 4-1 Powell (69. Lundberg); 5-1 Powell (79. Goulet) Game #2: 1-0 Powell (20. Ulrich); 2-0 Powell (37. Graybill, S.); 3-0 Patterson (62.); 4-0 Powell (80. Moss) Game #3: 0-1 (42.); 0-2 (50)
Boys Review Saturday: The U18DA and the U16DA teams traveled to Milwaukee on Saturday to take on FC Milwaukee in their first Development Academy games of 2012. In the U18 game, Shattuck went down 0-1 early on, but soon responded with a goal from sophomore standout Ricky Lopez . Shattuck put the game out of reach at the end of the first half, with two goals coming in three minutes for Patrick Barnes and John Lujano . The game finished 3-1. In the U16 game, the trend continued with Shattuck going down 0-1 to FC Milwaukee, but storming back to finish the game 6-2. Three players doubled their goal tallies in this game. Heath Honold , Steve Eneme , and Neal Usry all netted a pair of goals. In the U18YS game, Shattuck took on Valley United from Minneapolis in a friendly game at home. The game started off with much of the possession going to the home team, although Valley United put loads of pressure on Shattuck two outside-backs. The teams went into halftime tied at 0-0. Substitute, Karl Frisk scored a back-post header ten minutes into the second half. That was the game winner, as Shattuck won 1-0. Sunday: The U18DA traveled to Chicago to take on the Chicago Sockers in their second DA game of the weekend. Not much to tell from this game as it was even across the board, with Shattuck edging the Sockers in scoring opportunities, but never converting. The game finished 0-0 with Dary Dewalt getting the shutout for Shattuck. The U16DA team was not as lucky to come out of Chicago with a point, as they lost to the Sockers 0-1. In a well played game, Shattuck gave up a goal about halfway through the second half. Shattuck had their fair share of scoring opportunities, but failed to convert. The best two chances came from Jose Ojeda in the 30th minute, who saw his shot sail over from close range, and in stoppage time of the second half Corey Cadeau just missed a diving header at the back post. Back in Minnesota it was a different story for the U18YS team who took on a weaker opponent in CC United, in their second friendly of the weekend. The scoring was opened up halfway through the first have and didn’t stop until the final whistle at 7-0. Next up for the the U18YS squad is a friendly this weekend against Minneapolis United, and then it is on to the 2012 Dallas Cup.
Weekend Review: March 17th-18th
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

U18DA First game vs. FC Delco SSM jumped off to a quick start with a goal in the first minute of the game. FC Delco tied the game on a 30 yard shot midway through the first half. Several minutes before the half ended FC Delco got a second goal after winning a ball off a pass back to a SSM defender. Half ended 2-1.

SSM got in behind the defense and sent two crosses in from the right side but was unable to make anything of the cross. Game ended 2-1. Second game vs. Seacoast United SSM controlled the game from the start, as several players who didn’t start of Saturday made the starting 11. The ball movement and mobility of the SSM players created numerous opportunities and forced Seacoast to spend most of the half inside their defending third of the field. The teams went into halftime 2-0 in favor or Shattuck. Seacoast started the second half strong, stepping up to try and pressure SSM in their defending half of the field. However, even with the pressure SSM held off Seacoast and kept a clean sheet on the day. Third game vs. FC Greater Boston SSM entered this final game wanting to complete the showcase with a win. SSM again dominated possession in the first half but each team traded off penalty kicks with Christian Foust making the save to keep FC Greater Boston scoreless in the first half. John Lujano, whose penalty kick was initially saved put away the rebound to score for SSM. The half ended 1-0. Twenty-seven seconds into the second half Jacob Gandarilla stole a ball from an opposing player, wins in a 1v1 situation and then beats the goalkeeper on a shot from the top of the box, 2-0 for SSM. FC Greater Boston has a man ejected for serious foul play but responds positively minutes later by scoring a goal to make the score 2-1. For the remainder of the game FC Greater Boston tries to push forward in search of the tying goal while SSM looks to counter. SSM gets into the opposing penalty area four different times on counters but cannot get the ball past the opposing goalkeeper to put away the game. The final few minutes of play are frantic as SSM has to deal with long balls into the box and long throws to the near post. The game ends 2-1. BU18 DA completes showcase with a 2-1 record. Overall record for BU18 is 4-1. All games played so far are out of conference games. U16DA First Game vs. FC Delco SSM came out in and played a solid game that was even matched with an FC Delco side. In the first half, Corey Saurewine put SSM on the board with a slashing goal around the 21st minute. In the second half, Akeem Ward put Shattuck on the board again with a goal off of a corner kick. Although the game was evenly matched, FC Delco did not have many quality chances on goal. The game finished 2-0 for SSM.

Third Game vs. Greater Boston This game was tough for the SSM side. From the start of the game they struggled to connect enough passes to make any quality scoring chances. In the first half, Greater Boston scored two goals midway through. The second half, didn’t see much change with the game ending 2-0 to Greater Boston.

The U18YS team comes home from the CASL Showcase in North Carolina with a win and two loses. The squad learned a lot from the weekend playing in an older U19 age group. The boys dropped the first two games against SAC Premier and Dixie Lions Athletic, but finished the weekend with a win against host CASL Elite. On Friday the boys took on SAC Premier out of Maryland. Right off the bat the game was not in the sabres favor. They had three starters go down with injuries in the first half. They snuck out of the first half only being down 1-0. The second half was a different story when SAC capitalized on three quality chances, finishing the game 4-0. The next morning, the sabres took on Dixie Lions Athletic out of Canada. Playing in the U19 division, the sabres were clearly the younger team according to size. The Canadian team came out strong, but the Shattuck players were up for the challenge. Dixie Lions scored right before halftime off of a corner kick. With the sabres not finding many chances in the second half, that is how the game ended at 1-0 in favor of Dixie Lions Athletics. Sunday ended up being the best day for the Shattuck St. Mary’s team so they continued to get stronger throughout the weekend. They took on a CASL Elite team out of North Carolina, and the host’s of the showcase. The game was evenly matched from the start, but the sabres had more of the ball and better chances on goal. Late in the second half, with four minutes left, top goal scorer, Neal Usry came up big for the sabres, slotting home a through ball from newcomer Geoffrey Dee . Next up for the U18YS team is the Shattuck St. Mary’s College Showcase in Faribault, MN.
