August 27, 2013Bishop Brossart High School
Dr. Drew Berkemeyer gets his first hat trick of his varsity career against the Boyd County Lions tonight. The Mustangs scored early and often in Scott County Tournament as the Lions had no answers for the Big Green.
The Mustangs got all that they would need in the 5th minute when Drew Berkemeyer got the game winner and the first goal. Jon Henn sent a perfect corner kick that Drew found with his back heel and slid the ball past the keeper for the 1-nil lead. The fans were excited in the 11th frame when Senior, Eli Nienaber checked into the game. Eli has been recovering from a serious knee injury and was cleared to play for tonight’s contest. Eli didn’t disappoint the crowd either as he struck a nice ball from the left corner that found Drew’s head for the Geico Insurance Goal of the Game.
In the 17th minute Drew Berkemeyer completed his hat trick as he again took another ball out of the air and off his head that sailed past the keeper and into the net. Eli Nienber picked up another assist almost from the same spot as his last assist came from. Then in the 25th minute the Mustangs found nylon again as Jon Hen sent a nice corner kick to a streaking Mark Goller who sent one low and hard that left burn marks on the turf for his first varsity goal of his career. The route was on.
Mitch Parnell closed out the scoring in the first half when he followed a deflection off the keeper on a strong shot from Nick Dierig. Mitch sent the ball into the net for the 5-0 lead with 6 minutes to go in the period.
The Mustangs got one more score in the second period when Dutch Graus blasted the ball off another deflection that Joey Hickman had shot at the Lion’s keeper.
The defense put up another great showing. Luke Ridder led the D with his aggressive play. Andrew Erickson and Jeff Paulin combined for the shutout.
The Mustangs had 26 shots to only 9 for the Lions. The Mustangs keeper’s had 4 saves on the night. The Mustangs had 7 corner kicks to only 1 for the Lions.
The Mustangs are now 4-0 on the season and will play Thursday in the finals of the Cardinal Cup against the winner of Simon Kenton and Scott County.
