Friday-Monday, Jan. 20-23
At ECNL Florida:
• The 2007 Boys completed a clean sweep of their three matches — a feat accomplished by only 6 of 61 teams in the age group — kicking things off with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Virginia Development Academy. Maddox Andrea and Michael Miller put the Hounds up 2-1, and Garrett Chandler scored the winner with 15 minutes left after VDA tied the game. The Hounds wouldn’t allow another goal on the weekend, as they next defeated Florida Kraze, 1-0, with a Aedan Costa setting up Roman Agostoni for the winner and Andrew Schedlbauer stopping a penalty kick. The weekend ended with a 2-0 win over the Utah Avalanche, as Nathan Katari made a big run to the end line to set up Costa for the first goal, and Andrea picked out Agostoni for a goal on the second ball in from a corner kick.
• The 2006 Boys ended the weekend on a high note, knocking off Maryland United FC, 2-0. Jackson Suski and Tresz McLeod scored in the first half for the Hounds, and the team played a smart, compact second half to not allow Maryland any good looks at goal. The good ending came after two challenging matches to start the event — a 3-1 defeat against Florida West FC and a 3-2 loss after a lead slipped away against S.C. Surf.
• The 2004/05 Boys began things with a 5-0 loss to the Charlotte Independence, a game that was only 2-0 before things got away from the Hounds in the final eight minutes. The team couldn’t find the net in a much tighter contest, a 1-0 loss to Arlington Soccer (Va.), and then the weekend ended with a 3-2 setback against Solar SC (Texas) in which Alex Hauskrecht headed in an Oliver Daboo cross, and Colin Lazzara and Ari Johnson combined to make it 2-2 before Solar took the win on a penalty kick.
• The 2004/05 Regional League Boys were the 1-0 wonders, winning all three of their contests by that score against Connecticut FC, FC Stars (Mass.) and Orlando City SC. Justin Lia off a corner kick, Anthony Vendetti from the penalty spot and Ryan Shantz in the run of play scored the goal, as the Hounds were among four teams (out of 41) to win three matches and one of just three to post three clean sheets.
• The 2006 RL Boys took their lumps but got some good exposure in their three matches, starting with a 3-1 loss against Charlotte SA (N.C.). The team couldn’t find the net as the weekend wore on with losses to Concorde Fire (Ga.), 5-0, and Tennessee SC, 4-0.
Saturday, Jan. 14
In ECNL matches at AHN Montour:
• The 2009 Boys started their new year the right way with a 3-2 win over Cleveland Force in a make-up match from December. Dylan Shallenberger scored a pair of goals for the Hounds, and with the game tied in the closing minutes, Warren Agostoni scored from a free kick to secure the three points.
• The 2010 Boys lost a close one against Cleveland Force, also finishing with a 3-2 score. Matteo Pacienza and Niko Dejesus scored for the Hounds.
Friday-Tuesday, Jan. 6-10
At ECNL Florida:
• The 2004/05 Girls swept through their weekend with a pair of 2-1 wins over PDA White (N.J.) and Carolina Elite (N.C.) before capping the trip with a 4-0 victory over Florida Krush. Kate Friday and Fiona Mahan scored in the opener, as the Hounds had to dig in defensively to see out the match, while Ella Bulava scored a stellar goal from 30 yards after assisting Lucia Wells for the first goal on Day 2. Bella Vozar, Bulava and Mahan twice found the net to close out the weekend in style, ending an impressive weekend all around.
• The 2006 Girls kicked off their weekend with a 3-0 win over Eclipse Select (N.C.), as Ava Kovseck pounced on a loose ball to break the deadlock in the second half, and Jadyn Coy scored two late goals to put the game to bed. Aris Lamanna had the clean sheet; Caroline Liptak and Stephanie Tovar were very good on the day, and Atleigh Ciprich was energetic with an assist. The team came up short, 2-0, against a Loudoun SC (Va.) side that won the midfield on the day, but the Hounds bounced back for a 2-2 draw, replying from two goals down with strikes by Lucille McCargo from distance and Abbi Rosser off a corner kick.
• The 2007 Girls started with a physical matchup that ended as a 2-1 loss to Alabama SC, despite a goal from Maddie Williams and strong defensive play from Alessia Padalino and Mikayla Canzian. That was the only setback of the week, as the Hounds took down Charlotte SA (N.C.), 2-0, and FC Delco (Pa.), 4-1, in their remaining two matches. Sierra Dupre posted a brace against Charlotte, including a strike from 25 yards, and Dupre, Melina Gill and Emma Schupansky had the Hounds ahead 3-0 in the final match before Robin Reilly provided a goal in response to Delco finding the net.
• The 2004/05 Regional League Girls had an up-and-down weekend, falling 1-0 to a late winner by Sporting Blue Valley (Kan.), winning 1-0 over Florida Premier, and running out of steam in a 7-1 loss to Space Coast United (Fla.). Riley Kumar was outstanding in goal with a strong first game and a clean sheet in the second. Emilie Oslosky netted the winner on the second day, and Ava Barton scored a nice consolation goal from 25 yards out in the finale.
• The 2006 RL Girls were tripped up in a pair of matchups with old USL clubs, losing 2-1 to the Wilmington Hammerheads (N.C.) and 3-2 to Orlando City before a 3-0 loss against FC Bucks (Pa.). The team fought well and deserved to get a result from the early games, the second after nearly rallying from three goals down, but the girls raised their level of play with more than 40 college coaches looking on during the Orlando match.
• The 2007 RL Girls also suffered some near misses with a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay United, a 4-0 defeat against Space Coast United and a 2-1 setback against Alabama FC. Mia Nardo scored in the opener, and Maddie Williams nearly got the team a result with her tying goal in the final match, only for the Hounds to concede with six minutes remaining.
In ECNL matches at AHN Montour:
• The 2004/05 Boys started slowly but came through with an excellent second half to beat the Cleveland Force, 3-1. Logan Mackey, Ari Johnson and Alex Hauskrecht scored the Hounds goals.
• The 2006 Boys came up a goal short against the visiting Cleveland Force in a 2-1 defeat.
• The 2007 Boys rallied from two goals behind to get a 3-3 draw with Cleveland Force. Michael Miller scored with a quality left-footed finish, and Nathan Katari scored twice, once from the penalty spot and then by redirecting a Brayden Davin cross.
• The 2008 Boys were locked in a low-scoring battle, but it was the visiting Cleveland Force who got the only goal in a 1-0 contest.
