Mustangs go Dutch, then fall to Bluebirds
October 3, 2013Bishop Brossart High School
The Bishop Brossart Mustangs celebrated the accomplishments of the Seniors last night at Northern Kentucky University. It was a very large crowd on hand to watch the Seniors play. It was good to see so many former players and all the students at the game. It was a wonderful night for a soccer match with perfect weather.
This group of Seniors have a lot to be proud of. As part of last year’s team they have the most wins in Brossart history. Hopefully with a great state run they can beat that win total. They have a 14-3 record this year, many shutouts, many goals, and assists. They won the ALL A State Championship this year, they won the Scott County Tournament for the second year in a row as well as the Harrison County Tournament. The individual players have made many milestones that we will write about when the season is over.
We would like to thank the Seniors for their 4 and some 5 years of service to Bishop Brossart.
Andrew Erickson, Dutch Graus, Jake Jennings, Eli Nienaber, Mitch Parnell, Drew Miller, Drew Berkemeyer, Jon Geiman, Luke Ridder, and Josh Kueper
These guys all contribute to the team and as you watch the games you see the hustle, the dedication, and hard work that they give the Mustang Program and to Coach Goller.
I don’t talk about the defense that much as it is always about the goals, but this defense has really played well all season long. They have given up very few goals and the Senior leadership of Luke Ridder, Josh Kueper, Jon Geiman, and Andrew Erickson in the back has made those important stops at critical points in the game. Offense gets the glamour, but defensive wins championships. Not to mention the outside mid positions of Dutch and Mitch.
As for the game, in the 4th frame, Dutch Graus got the first goal of the game on a nice corner kick that found its way right in front of the posts. Dutch showed off his incredible hops as he sent the ball, himself and the keeper into the net for the early 1-0 score.
The Mustangs had many chances again this night, but 5 games in 5 days can take its toll even on high school players. The Bluebirds got the equalizer early in the 51st minute and then an own goal with 8 minutes to play gave the Bluebirds the 2-1 lead.
These Mustangs wouldn’t quit. With two minutes to go in the game they made a final push with lots of shots on goal, but couldn’t find the net and the Cake Eaters sneak away with a victory.
The Mustangs fall to 14-3 on the year and have a week off to heal themselves before their final game on Sataurday October 12th away at Russell and then Districts the next week. Thanks to the Junior parents who put together Senior night. It was very special and always something to look forward too.
