MCS Blue Devils advance to sectional semi-finals

By John Bernhardt
For all but one of the Southern Delaware County soccer teams, postseason play was “The Great Vanishing Act of 2011.”

The lose-and-go home finality of the Section IV playoffs seemed to shrink the size of the goals to the point where it was impossible to score. The Roxbury boys’ and girls’ teams and the Margaretville girls failed to score a single regulation time goal between them as each disappeared from the playoffs after opening round play. Only the Margaretville boys remain in action.

All aboard! The Section IV soccer playoff train is ready to depart. For the first time in memory, all four local high school soccer teams will be making the trip. Both the girls’ and boys’ teams from Margaretville and Roxbury will begin their quest for a Section IV soccer championship this week.

Syn-er-gy. (n) Also called synergism. The working together of two or more things, people, or organizations, especially when the result is greater than the sum of their individual effects or capabilities.

Something special is going on with the Lady Rockets in Roxbury. It’s not complicated. It’s not unreachable. It’s not dependent on raw athletic ability or extraordinary playing skills. Yet, finding it and putting it to work is rare.

Devils need help to win title

By John Bernhardt
The Margaretville boys’ soccer team has posted a help wanted sign. A 2-2 tie with Davenport last week leaves the Blue Devils needing outside help to have any chance of winning their fifth straight Delaware League Upper Division championship. With their title hopes dimming, Margaretville can’t catch Davenport without help from another Delaware League team.

He already has over 500 wins on the basketball court, but Davenport coaching legend Ray Preston is not done yet. Preston won his 399th girls soccer game when his team edged Margaretville, 2-1, in a game played in Davenport last week.

The Blue Devils used an unassisted Amy Filupiet goal to carry a 1-0 lead into the second half, but Davenport rallied. As she has so many times this season, Sarah Haight had a hand in the turnaround. The high-scoring sophomore used a Sam Maidens pass to beat Margaretville goalie

The Roxbury Rockets’ girls’ soccer team is on a roll. The Rockets edged Gilboa, 1-0, Monday night running their win streak to four games.

The steak puts Roxbury in the thick of the Delaware League’s Mountain Division title chase. Roxbury’s league record stands at 3-1-2. Downsville is the only other Mountain Division team with fewer than two league losses.

Four Named Post 216 All-Stars

MCS boys rebound in soccer play

Like a Las Vegas table dealer, Margaretville boys’ soccer coach Jeremy Marks reshuffled his Blue Devils’ deck. Exchanging personnel back and forth between lines, Marks gave his team a new look. The Margaretville mix and match dealt Marks and his Blue Devils a winning hand.

It was like a step back in time. Watching Elia Tanzer launch her Margaretville varsity soccer career was like reversing the clock several years to watch another Margaretville freshman, the Blue Devils’ prolific scoring threat of years gone by, Claire Cella.
