Girls' soccer district champs!

The girls' soccer team won the district championship yesterday with a 3-2 victory over Fenwick at Bellbrook.

Michelle Jolson scored the first goal of the game.  Meghan McAllister later headed in a shot to make it 2-0.

Fenwick came back in the second half to tie the game 2-2.

With 14.8 seconds to go Michelle was fouled in the penalty box and scored the game winner on a PK.

Football team defeats Indian Hill 41-6

The football team travelled to Indian Hill Friday night to face the CHL rival Braves and came home with a 41-6 victory.  The boys are CHL champs and finish the regular season at 9-1, 7-0 in the league.

It was another big night for Kyle Seyfried, who was 16-23 for 321 yards and five touchdowns.

Jonathan Tighe hauled in eight of those passes for 208 yards and three TD's.

Also catching TD passes were Chris Dolle and Drew Perry.  Drew also rushed for 108 yards.

Max Kadish scored the remaining TD, returning the opening kickoff of the 2nd half 84 yards to paydirt.

Football playoff picture

The CHL website says that the football team has clinched a spot in the playoffs.

Jim Barre says that we will play away at Jackson (2 1/2 hours), Eaton (1 1/2 hours) or Roger Bacon (10 minutes).  The game will be on Saturday, November 6th so no concerns about needing to leave work early in case of a long drive to the game.  Plus - we "fall back" that night so no worries about losing sleep after a late night either.


Alex Kamphaus, WHS '08, records second shutout for Otterbein

From the Enquirer:

Otterbein junior Alex Kamphaus [WHS Class of 2008] recorded his second shutout of the season, including totaling five saves, in a 2-0 win against Baldwin-Wallace.

Make plans for Sunday...

because Friday night and Saturday are taken.

Friday night the football team takes on arch-rival Indian Hill. It's away, but well worth the trip.

On Saturday you're not going to be able to see everything, unfortunately.

Things start off with cross country. The regional meet is at Troy Memorial Stadium, 151 Staunton Road, Troy, Ohio. The boys run at 11:50 and the girls at 2:05.

Next up is volleyball at 1:45. The match is at Kettering Fairmont - 3301 Shroyer Road, Kettering, Ohio 45429.

Finally it's girls' soccer at 5:30 at Bellbrook - 3737 Upper Bellbrook Road, Bellbrook, Ohio 45305.

Pack the cooler, fire up the GPS and enjoy a day of outstanding Wyoming sports.

Girls' Cross Country 2nd, Boys' 1st at District Meet

OK - these are actually the results I reported on earlier (here and here - since corrected), but I was under the impression that it was sectionals, when it was in fact Districts.  Sorry for the error.

Girls' soccer beats Mariemont 3-2

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times - it was a tale of two halves.

In their tournament game last night at CHCA against Mariemont, the girls stormed to a 3-0 lead toward the end of the first half.

Hailee Schlager put in a corner from Michelle Jolson that Nikki McKee had kept alive in front of the goal with a header.

Later Michelle drove down the right side of the field and launched a hard shot that the Mariemont keeper was able to get both hands on but only enough to slow it down.  It meandered lazily into the net.

Finally Carly Levick put up a moon shot from pretty far out and to the left side of the goal.  It took a large turf-field bounce (after yesterday's weather it would never have done so on grass) and went over the keeper's head.

So we went into halftime with a 3-0 lead and all the momentum. 

During halftime, Jim Barre explained that it's a soccer axiom that the worst lead to have is 2-0, so he was especially glad for Carly's goal.  (Apparently 1-0 isn't enough of a lead to induce you to let your guard down.  3-0 gives you enough of a lead to be somewhat complacent and get away with it.  2-0 induces you to be overconfident but doesn't give you enough cushion to get away with having done so.)

His words turned out to be prophetic.  Mariemont scored two goals in the second half before we stiffened our defense and allowed them no more.

The girls are now 12-4-3 on the season.

They advance to play Fenwick, Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at Bellbrook.

Boys' soccer loses to McNick

The boys' soccer team lost a heartbreaker to McNicholas last night at Madeira.

McNick came in as the #1 seed in the bracket (we were #2).

They dominated play early and had at least five corner kicks in the first 15 minutes of the game, putting in the last to go up 1-0.

Wyoming came to life after that and the teams played pretty evenly the rest of the way.

Aaron Linn put in a long direct kick to even the score late in the first half.

The second half was scoreless.

The first 15 minute sudden death overtime was scoreless.

The second 15 minutes sudden death overtime was scoreless.

Thus the game came down to penalty kicks.  We missed one.  McNick made all of theirs.

The boys played very well.  As I said, McNick came out strong and had us on our heels, but we came back and the game could have gone either way.

This is the third straight tournament exit by PK for us, as both the boys' and girls' teams went out that way last year.

Coach Steve Thomas said:
I am so proud of every Varsity and JV player who wore the Wyoming uniform this season. You represented your teams, your school, your parents and the community with class and I appreciate you all very much! 

Yes, I am sad that the season is over but what a great season for both teams.

I believe that we are blessed to have some of the best coaches in the city. Thank you Coach Hartke, Coach Fitzpatrick and Coach Panos for your commitment to the soccer program and for the countless hours of preparation you put in this season.
The team ended the season 13-6 and tied for 1st in the Enquirer Coaches' Poll.

Football defeats Taylor

The football team went to Taylor Friday night and came away with a 42-13 victory.

The halftime score was closer than expected - 14-7, but the team pulled away in the third quarter with 21 unanswered points.

Kyle Seyfried led the way in his second game back from injury.  He was 16 of 25 for 390 yards and five touchdowns.  TD passes went to Drew Perry (5 yards), Max Kadish (70 yards and 30 yards) and Jonathan Tighe (33 and 99 yards).  Unless Ohio goes to Canadian football rules so the field is 120 yards long (please direct questions to Jim Leish or Claude Potvin), that record will never be broken.

Drew had the one rushing touchdown for the game.  Joe Panos was 6-6 on PAT's.

The defense had another good night, allowing Taylor just 5 first downs during the first three quarters.  They also took the ball away three times on interceptions by Phillip Schuholz, Chris Campbell and Tyler Cornelius.

What is 12 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs 529 pounds and you really want on your side?  Wyoming football alum's Jeff King, WHS '07 and Ohio University D-lineman, and Jibreel Black, WHS '10 and Michigan D-End.  No stats on the future Cowboy star with them.

Next up: regular season finale at Indian Hill Friday night at 7:30.
