At the Riverhounds Spring Invitational:
Though weather interrupted the schedule in a few divisions, the RDA’s first Spring Invitational and their final tournament of the 2021-22 competitive season was a success with 16 champions crowned across the various age groups for boys and girls. Nine of those winners came from the RDA, with another six Hounds teams posting runner-up finishes.
• The 13 Boys had to avenge an opening-match loss to Beadling in the final, which the Hounds took 3-1. Roman Salsi scored twice and Stefan Gaidos had the first goal in the final victory, but the team was tested throughout. Musa Touray and Caden Lenart scored in the 3-2 opening loss; Touray scored twice with Gaidos, Lenart and an own goal adding to a 5-0 win over RVSC; and Niko Barisic scored the game-winner — his second goal — late in a 4-3 triumph over MSA to reach the title game, as Salsi and Lenart also found the net.
• The 13 East Boys were in command for much of the weekend, winning all four of their games by a combined margin of 25-3. But they needed to produce a strong performance Sunday to clinch the top spot against title contenders Beadling East, and the Hounds emerged 3-2 winners.
• The 12 East Boys nearly posted a clean sheet weekend, conceding only once in their 4-1 championship game victory over Beadling. Team defending was the difference in the final game, as Roman Salandra, Jacob Nguyen, Nick Bosnic, and Ridge Brunton shared Man of the Match honors. Jacob Mickinak posted three shutouts during pool play.
• The 11 Boys came out on top in the only all-Hounds final, topping the 11 East Boys by a 4-2 score in the deciding game. Emi Vasquez scored twice, and Beckett Leahy and Keller Gilson added the other goals in the final for the city side, which finished second in pool play after the East team came out on top in the first meeting, also by a 4-2 score. Evan Sherer, Josh Bondra and Rocco Cicci were a solid back line supporting Macklin Cantwell, as the only goals conceded on the weekend by the city side were scored by the well-organized and dangerous East team.
• The 11 East Girls romped to their championship, topping River Valley SC, 7-0, on the way to a perfect weekend with a 24-1 goal margin. The team’s toughest match was a Saturday win over MUSC that was tied at the interval, but the Hounds turned it on in the second half for a 4-1 victory in an impressive weekend by all players involved.
• The 11 Girls showed age is nothing but a number, as they played up in the second flight of the age group above them. That didn’t stop the Hounds from taking the top spot with a 2-0 win over MUSC in their second match of the day Sunday. The same two teams battled to a 2-2 draw to end pool play and finish with matching 2-0-1 records, setting up the tightly matched title game.
• The 10 Girls were another runaway winner in their division, outscoring the opposition 24-1 and finishing with a 6-1 win over Empire FC. Hannah Tannert came up with a few good saves to keep Empire from inching closer, while the weekend’s scoring highlight was a six-goal game by Claire Karsman in a win over Beadling North. Liliana Meehleib also had a hat trick and five total goals on the weekend.
• The 08 East Girls battled to a 1-1 draw with the 08 Girls in their opening match, with a Mackenzie Kubistek free kick canceling out Molly Baker’s opener for the city side. That result would be pivotal later on — the East girls defeated BVB Academy 1-0 on Sienna Ali’s goal, while the city side was held to another 1-1 draw by BVB, handing the top spot in the round-robin group to the 08 East Girls with a 3-0-1 record, ahead of the city’s 2-0-2 mark.
• The 07 Girls didn’t post the lopsided margins of some of the younger teams, but they comfortably swept through their division, finishing with a 5-0 win over Empire FC on balanced scoring from Helena Walker, Robin Reilly, Isabella Costa, Sierra Dupre and Elin Bash. Costa posted a pair, and Dupre and an own goal accounted for a 4-1 win over Penn FC; and Dupre, Simone Sharpless and Maddie Barr scored in the opening win, a 3-1 comeback over an Allegheny Force team that surprised the Hounds with an early goal.
• Apart from the 11 East Boys in their aforementioned final and the 08 Girls, other Hounds teams with runner-up finishes were the 12 Boys, 10 Boys, 13 Girls and 12 Girls.

Sunday, May 1
In ECNL matches at AHN Montour:
• The 03/04 Girls led at halftime through an own goal and pulled away from FC Alliance (Tenn.), 4-0. Tessa Dellarose scored from the penalty spot and with a worldy from 25 yards out, and she helped set up Jayden Sharpless for her headed goal in the win.
• The 05 Girls dropped a 5-2 match to FC Alliance. After trailing by a goal, the Hounds went ahead through goals by Lola Abraham and Lucia Wells, but three massive errors were punished and led to the unflattering final score.
• The 06 Girls were beaten 4-1 by FC Alliance.
• The 07 Girls battled through a disjointed match due to lightning delays but came out ahead of FC Alliance, 4-1. Maddie Marcotte had a pair of goals, and Isabella Costa and Sierra Dupre also scored in the victory.
• The 03/04 Regional League Girls got a gutsy 1-0 win over FC Alliance after being reduced to 10 players after just 27 minutes on a disputed handling call. Manon Prokesch headed in the winner from a Jocelyn Gratchic assist, and Aleah Parison recorded the shutout.
• The 05 RL Girls played better than the score reflected, as they were topped 4-1 by FC Alliance. Sarah Ripley headed in the goal for the Hounds, who created their share of chances.
• The 06 RL Girls also had a strong outing despite the score going FC Alliance’s way, 3-1. Maria Pasquinelli scored from an Angelina McGrath corner, and the Hounds also struck the bar and had other missed opportunities.
• The 07 RL Girls never got going in their own weather-interrupted match, a 5-0 loss to FC Alliance.
• The 03/04 Boys ran into the class of the conference, undefeated Louisville City FC, and the guests were clinical in dishing out a 7-0 scoreline that was a bit more harsh than the Hounds’ performance deserved.
• The 05 Boys picked up a resounding 7-1 win over Louisville City.
• The 06 Boys battled Louisville City to a 2-2 draw.
• The 07 Boys were beaten in the final minutes after a great battle with Louisville City, 3-2.

• The 08 Boys fell 6-1 in their contest with Louisville City.
• The 09 Boys hung tough and kept the game close for most of the match, but Louisville City pulled away for a 4-0 win.
At the Nike Cup in Columbus, Ohio:
• The 10 Boys were full of confidence and booked their spot in the final with a resounding 7-0 win over Club Ohio to top the group. In the final, they faced an even matchup with Ohio Premier. After being unlucky to concede from a free kick, Ryan Perez tied the game for the Hounds. Despite a late chance to win it, the match finished 1-1, but Ohio Premier took the title on penalty kicks, 4-2.
• The 13 Boys also pushed through to the final with a 5-4 win over a very good Barca Academy team. Niko Barisic scored four in the win, and Stefan Gaidos added the other goal. The championship game was another tight match, but Bridge City took the top spot, 4-3.
• The 12 East Boys closed the weekend on a high note, doing quite well in possession on the way to a 6-2 win over Sporting Columbus.
• The 08 RDA II Boys were short on substitutes and narrowly beaten, 2-1, by Canton Akron United.
In GLA matches:
• The 11 East Girls picked up a big win over top-of-the-league Internationals SC, 3-1. Zoe Bell, Madeline Peifer and Reese Regelski scored, as the team controlled play from the beginning and only conceded a single, late own goal.
• The 10 East Girls gave up an incredibly unlucky goal to not get something from their match, a 1-0 loss to Worthington United. Still a very good effort from the group.
• The 10 East Boys split a pair of results, losing 5-2 to Manta United but beating Croatia Juniors, 2-1. Caleb Hart and Steele Brunton scored in the first game, and Nolan Ptakiewicz and Gaven Rummel scored in the second, a win which likely will put the boys into the playoffs.
• The 08 East Boys gave a valiant effort with an ill goalkeeper and no subs, falling 2-1 to Chili SA. Cole Radcliffe scored, and the Hounds nearly grabbed a tying goal at the end while down to 10 players. All-in-all, an excellent shift by the group.
• The 10 RDA II Girls suffered a pair of defeats to Cobras and Internationals.
• The 06 RDA II Boys took a two-goals lead, but they struggled with the pace of the opposing team’s striker and fell 5-2 to CAPS.
Saturday, April 30
In ECNL matches at AHN Montour:
• The 03/04 Girls got mired in a midfield battle with Tennessee SC that ended as a 1-1 draw. The visitors nearly took home the victory, but Makayla Mulholland scored the tying goal for the Hounds in stoppage time by heading in a Jayden Sharpless corner kick.
• The 05 Girls fell 2-1 to Tennessee SC. The Hounds fell behind by two goals through a counter and a mistake in the back, but Minah Syam cut the lead back to one with 20 minutes to play. Despite chances, one goal was all the team could muster.
• The 06 Girls were beaten late after a very even game, but Tennessee SC scored the winner with seven minutes remaining in a 1-0 match.
• The 07 Girls knocked off Tennessee SC, the first-place team in the South Division, 2-1. Robin Reilly scored just a minute into the match, but the guests made it 1-1 just before halftime. Simone Sharpless struck the winning goal from a free kick, as the Hounds scored a great result.
• The 03/04 Regional League Girls fell 3-2 to Tennessee SC. Anastasia Crisante scored the Hounds first off the underside of the bar, and Sara Powell tied the game 2-2 before Tennessee won it on a long dribbling run from their right back.
• The 05 RL Girls fell 7-0, while the 06 RL Girls were beaten in the final four minutes, 1-0, in their games against Tennessee SC.
• The 07 RL Girls got a headed goal from Sydney Towers but couldn’t manufacture more offense in a 3-1 loss to Tennessee SC.
• The 03/04 Boys gave up a couple sloppy goals but pulled out a 4-2 win over Ohio Elite. Luke Lenz scored a brace, and DD Flowers and Sam Farner also hit the net in the win.
• After a scoreless first half, the 07 Boys got the job done for a 2-1 win against Ohio Elite. Sami Malkamaki tapped in the tying goal after OE went ahead, and Roman Agostoni got the game winner with his shot that deflected in off the goalkeeper.
At the Nike Cup in Columbus, Ohio:
• The 13 Boys had a mixed bag on their first day, beating Club Ohio, 4-3, and losing by the same score to Columbus United. Nike Barisic scored twice, while Musa Touray and Stefan Gaidos tallied in the win. Barisic, Touray and Caden Lenart scored in the second game, but the Hounds couldn’t recover from a flat start and a 3-0 deficit.
• The 12 Boys had chances but let one slip away in a 4-2 loss to Team Challenger, which came after falling to Club Ohio to open the day.
• The 12 East Boys started out with great possession and movement but need to shore up the team defense after a 4-4 tie with Worthington United in which Nate Brown stood out with a strong performance. The team couldn’t keep that flow going in their second match, unfortunately, falling 2-0 to Canton Akron United.
• The 11 Boys were outscored by a very good Michigan Jaguars side, 5-4. Keller Gilson had 2 goals, Emi Vasquez scored a first-time finish on Ethan Evans’ corner, and Mattox Everhart did the same on a corner from Vasquez. The second game got away from the side, as Club Ohio pulled away with a big second half.
• The 10 Boys were double winners on the day, defeating Club Ohio, 4-0, and Northwest Orange, 8-2. The opening match saw the Hounds take over after a scoreless first half, and that momentum carried through to the second contest.
• The 08 RDA II Boys were a little bit unlucky and needed to do more with their chances, as they were topped by Team Challenger and Club Ohio in a pair of 1-0 defeats.
In GLA matches:
• The 11 East Girls played two very competitive matches on the day. The team had a chance to tie late but lost 2-1 to Empire United despite a goal from Taylor Gladkowski, but the girls bounced back for a 2-1 win over Cleveland Force thanks to a free kick by Kennadee Richardson and second goal by Maxi Mitchell.
• The 10 East Boys recorded matching 3-1 wins over Cleveland Force and Barca Academy. Caleb Hart handled the scoring with a hat trick against the Force, and he scored along with Jake Gaudi and Nolan Ptakiewicz as the team played well and pressed the opposition into errors.
• The 10 East Girls played well defensively but were finally beaten with 15 minutes left by a single Cleveland Force goal in a 1-0 loss. The team continues to grow and play better but needs to find some scoring.
• The 10 RDA II Girls also needed to do more with their attack, as they were bested 2-0 by North FC and 3-1 by Cleveland Force. Mackenzie Abbs scored for the Hounds, but the team got too reliant on the long ball at times.
• The 09 East Girls started strong and took a lead through Angelika Dent, but a stronger Columbus United side fought back and beat the Hounds despite a positive effort, 3-1.
• The 08 East Girls came up short by a 4-2 score against Ambassadors FC. The defensive play needs to improve, though goalkeeper Laurel Rummel had an excellent game.
• The 06 RDA II Boys controlled play from start to finish in a 4-1 win over CVCA. James Jayamohan scored twice for the Hounds, and Noah Hutter and Andy Cosnek also put one in the net.
• The 05 RDA II Boys were put behind the 8-ball due to an early red card and were defeated by Beadling, 2-0.
• The 03/04 RDA II Boys also faced playing down a man, but a missed penalty cost them a chance at getting a result from a 1-0 loss to Liberty.
Sunday, April 24
In ECNL matches in Rochester, Mich.:
• The 09 Boys piled on the goals in a 6-0 win over Vardar SC. Dylan Shallenberger had two goals and two assists, and Cole Celedonia and Warren Agostoni each had two goals and an assist in the win. Connor Heliger recorded the clean sheet in goal.

• The 05 Girls pulled off a 1-1 draw with the first-place Internationals. Lucia Wells put the Hounds ahead, but the hosts tied the match on a set piece before half. The Hounds could have won it in an end-to-end second half, but a great effort by the girls secured a four-point weekend on the road.
• The 06 Girls worked hard but didn’t have enough in a 7-0 loss to Internationals.
• The 07 Girls were also in a top-of-the-table clash, but Internationals came out on top, 2-1. Sierra Dupre tied the game after an own goal, but the home team got the winner before halftime.
• The 03/04 Regional League Girls got a brace from Manon Prokesch and held on for a 2-1 win over Internationals. The Hounds had chances to extend their lead further, but the back line led by Lindsey Pawlawski and Maria Viega helped make two goals enough for the win.
• The 07 RL Girls probably deserved a better outcome, but the top-of-the-table Internationals came out on top, 3-1. A Sydney Towers header off an Emilie Oslosky cross accounted for the Hounds goal.
At the Nike Cup in Columbus, Ohio:
• The 10 East Girls advanced all the way to the final, where they were stopped for the first time all weekend by a Zanesville Arsenal side with a tough-to-stop striker in a 6-1 match. To win the group, the team mounted a furious comeback to beat Century, 4-3, after trailing by three goals. The Hounds played poorly in the first half but got things straightened out after the break, limiting Century to one second-half shot.
• The 12/13 East Girls played their best match and got to close the weekend on a deserved victory, 7-3 over Pride SC.
• The 10 Girls couldn’t grab a Sunday win, but they gave Total Futbol Academy side everything they could handle in a 1-0 defeat. Even playing on a poor field with one sub, the players produced their best of the tournament in the last game.
• The 11 Girls showed heart to come out with a 4-3 win over Cuyahoga Valley. Addyson Brown scored a hat trick, including the game-winner from a Mackenzie Carpenter cross, and HB Wolski scored the Hounds’ other goal.

• The 07 Boys snagged a 4-2 victory over the Michigan Wolves.
• The 08 Boys won a hard-fought 2-1 match over the Michigan Wolves. Calder Mahan scored a penalty kick for the Hounds, and Colton Yonker netted the game winner with an excellent header.

In ECNL matches in Euclid, Ohio and at AHN Montour:
• The 03/04 Girls won resoundingly over the Cleveland Force, 6-0. Mary Kate Lape posted a hat trick after Tessa Dellarose opened the scoring with an individual effort. Jayden Sharpless from distance and Abby Weis rounded out the scoring, while the back line of Makayla Mulholland, Gwen Howell and Sydney Lindeman was stout. Emma Van Meter made two key saves in the first half, as the game was just 2-0 at the break.
• The 05 Girls traveled with just 12 players and were outstanding to get a 2-0 road win over Cleveland Force. Lucia Wells put the Hounds ahead, and Lola Abraham doubled the lead before halftime. The Hounds settled into a more defensive posture after the break and saw the game out well.
• The 06 Girls held out until the end but lost 1-0 to the Cleveland Force on a set piece with two minutes remaining. The team had chances to score in the first half, but not getting the first goal proved costly.
• The 07 Girls went ahead but ended up falling 2-1 against Cleveland Force. Emma Schupansky scored the opening goal, but the Hounds squandered chances for a second before halftime and wore down in the second half.
• The 03/04 Regional League Girls used possession in the heat to wear down the Cleveland Force for a 2-0 win. Claire Gerard flew down the left side to open the scoring from close range, and Sarah Powell finished the second after Manon Prokesch beat her mark to serve a cross. Aleah Parison made five saves in the shutout, and Lindsey Pawlawski nearly bagged a goal making a run out of the back when she struck the crossbar.
• The 05 RL Girls were only down a goal after hitting the bar and forcing some good saves, but Cleveland Force pulled away late for a 4-0 win after the Hounds missed a penalty.
• The 06 RL Girls succumbed to the heat and a deeper Cleveland Force team after a promising start, as they fell 6-0.
• The 07 RL Girls conceded goals early in each half, and came up short against the Cleveland Force, 3-1. Emilie Oslosky pulled a goal back to make it 2-1, but the team couldn’t find a second goal.
At the Nike Cup in Columbus, Ohio:
• The 10 East Girls had a good opening day with a 2-2 draw against Northwest FC and a 7-3 win over Olimpia USA. Gloria Kovscek and Faith Stuart got the goals in the early draw, and the team did very well to spread the ball around and possess in the second match, despite a less-than-ideal surface.
• The 12/13 East Girls had some good spells of play but were topped by Cincinnati United and Canton Akron United.
• The 13 Girls were on the wrong end of an opening loss to Ohio Premier, but they rebounded well and controlled play in a lopsided victory over Club Ohio.
• The 12 Girls played quite well in stretches but were missing some players, and that might have taken a toll in a 6-3 loss to Ohio Premier and a 6-5 loss to Barca Academy. Lucy Kline scored twice and Lillian Kandrak also had a goal in the opener, before Devyn Greggs netted a hat trick and Mackenzie Linder also scored in the second match.
• The 11 Girls were scoreless in the first half but didn’t play well enough in the second half of a 6-0 loss to Ohio Premier, but they bounced back with a 2-2 draw against BSA Celtics. After trailing 2-0, Genevieve Droe provided the first goal from top of the box, and Mackenzie Carpenter tied it in the final seconds on a through ball from Gianna Marts.
• The 10 Girls fell in the opener, 6-1, with Claire Karsman getting the consolation goal on a free kick against Ohio Premier. The Hounds battled hard to earn a 3-3 draw with DSX Fire, and Karsman again was the set piece specialist with a hat trick of two free kicks and a penalty.
• The 10 RDA II Girls came up just short, 3-2, in a comeback attempt against Legend SC. The girls were a little too hesitant in their second match, falling 7-1 to Ohio Premier.
In GLA matches:
• The 06 RDA II Boys battled the heat and the NY Rush to come away with a 2-2 draw. The Hounds trailed and then claimed the lead, only to give up a tying goal from distance with seven minutes remaining in a competitive battle.
• The 12 Boys dropped a pair of matches against a very good Columbus United team. Miles Voight got the Hounds on the board in the second game.
