October 9, 2010, 1:30 p.m.: U10 Killer Whales Vs. Green Fireballs
Reported by Matthew and Cristal Vivirito

After a long morning in which they were beat by the E-Lemon-aders 4-0, the Killer Whales (coached by Matthew and Cristal Vivirito, sponsored by Fish Care Unlimited) entered their final double-header game hungry for a win against the Green Fireballs (coached by Joe Flores and Chris Vaughn, sponsored by Frazier Park Market).

Playing a man down, the Fireballs came out strong in the first quarter with Lucas Flores and Mikayla Tondreau attacking the Whales’ goal, but the Whales’
defense, headed by Sedona Vivirito, Kelly Stegeman, Aden Wiebers and Adam Snover, was just too strong. The two teams battled hard and Killer Whales forward D.J. Kimbrough was determined to score. He slammed three balls into the net, giving him a hat trick and ending quarter one Killer Whales-3, Green Fireballs-0.
In the second quarter, after pulling Kimbrough back into defense,Whales midfielder Sedona Vivirito scored her first goal of the season making it Killer Whales-4, Green Fireballs-0 at the half.
AThe Green Fireballs were more determined than ever after the half. They attacked their opponents’ goal repeatedly, but Killer Whales goalies Adam Snover and Aden Wiebers might as well have been a brick wall, because nothing passed through them. In the third quarter Killer Whales Macalah Bierman scored an awesome goal, her second goal of the season. Sisters Kelly and Angela Stegman worked together to score the sixth goal for the Whales. Mikayla Tondreau was doing an awesome job as goalie for the Fireballs, blocking many shots.

Killer Whales Sedona Vivirito was very persistent in her attack on goal and ended up scoring the final goal for the Whales, making the final score of the game. Killer Whales took the win, 7-0.

October 9, 2010: U12 Rebels Vs. Burgundy Beasts
Reported by Matthew and Cristal Vivirito
It started out on a cold Saturday morning at the El Tejon Fields. The Burgundy Beasts (coached by Neeley & Schillig, sponsored by Mountain Auto Body) came out strong and attacked the Rebels (coached by Matthew and Cristal Vivirito, and sponsored by La Sierra Mexican Restaurant) when John Masud scored the first goal of the game for the Beasts in the first quarter.

The Beasts were fierce with a strong offense and scored yet another goal by Alex in the second quarter making it Rebels-0, Beasts-2.

As the tempature started warming, up so did the Rebels. Michael Stegeman got the ball rolling for the Rebels and scored a sweet shot out by the 18-yard line. On the very next play for the Rebels, Michael Stearnes put one in the back of the net with the equalizer! Within two minutes? Score: Rebels-2, Beasts-2.

Michael Stearnes didn’t stop there. They got two more goals before the half, giving him a hat trick! Score at the half? Rebels-4, Beasts-2. The Rebels came out in the second half with a different line-up and Midfielder Lily Hallmark(in the game as a forward) slammed one into the net. Mid field was consistently controlled by Rebels Brianna Edwards and Cesar Camacho. The Beasts’ defense lead by Maria Caldrone, Dylan Forester and Kolbe Gameros fought hard, with many great stops, but the offensive attack of the Rebels was just too much.

Michael Stegeman came alive with fury in the third quarter, burying 2 more in the goal, to give him a hat trick for the day, too! The Beasts kept fighting on, making many shots at goal and playing tough. Rebels defense held strong in the fourth with Michael Stearnes in as goalie and Rachel Hallmark, Joey Bizzinni and Alvaro Molina back in on defense. Rebels defenseman (playing up in as a midfielder) Thomas (Tommy) Paniagua caught himself in the right place at the right time and knocked in a goal to end the game in a Rebels-8, Beasts-2 decision.

October 2, 2010: Diablos Rojos vs. Ninja Turtles
By Jacob Lien
On October 2, at 2 p.m, Frazier Park’s AYSO Region 382 Diablos Rojos played Bakersfield AYSO Region 73 Ninja Turtles. Each team fielded 7 players. The first quarter ended with no scoring, but several attempts on goal by the Diablos.

The refreshing fall rain made the game much more enjoyable, although many players watched fearfully for lightning. Even without their top scorers, Heriberto (Eddy) Reyes and Cody Bauer, the Diablos pulled out a victory for Region 382.

One Turtle earned two yellow cards and was sent off the field. Max Arteaga received one yellow as well. The Turtles scored a penalty kick for an unintentional handball by the Diablos in the penalty area.

The final score was Diablos 8, Turtles 5. The leading scorer for the Diablos was Alex Gonzales with 4, followed by Jeremy Harris with 2, Max Arteaga with 1 and Forest Csulak with 1. Way to go Diablos Rojos (aka “Sexy Tomatoes.”)!

October 2, 2010: U-10 E-LEMON-ators vs. Green Fireballs
By Tara Heisig

The mountain thunderstorms didn’t reach the soccer fields on Saturday morning, so the U-10 E-LEMON-ators (sponsored by The Bear Claw Bakery, and coached by Paul Heisig) and the Green Fireballs got to play their game as scheduled. The weather conditions during the game were hot and humid, and both teams were in for a tough game, as both were without substitute players.

The E-LEMON-ators and the Green Fireballs started the game strong, with solid defensive play on both sides. Their efforts left the first quarter of play scoreless for both teams. Then, in the second quarter, Isabella Sanchez scored the first goal of the game for the E-LEMON-ators, with an assist by Derek Heisig. Other scores for the E-LEMON-ators in the first half of the game, came from Tavin Heisig, with an assist from Reece DeYoung.

After a well-deserved half-time break and snack, both teams came out eager to play in the third quarter. There were some close shots for both teams, some great stops by the goalies, and a few tumbles, but, thankfully, no injuries. Additional scores for the E-LEMON-ators came from Otto Jensen, with an excellent pass from Ryan Rea, and Derek Heisig, who scored in the fourth quarter with an assist from Carlin Collins.

Overall, the play of the E-LEMON-ators was marked by strong passing and unselfish play. Both teams played hard. The final score was E-LEMON-ators – 7, Green Fireballs – 0.

U-19 Prime Time vs The Cool Guys
By Tonya Zorich

This was an exciting, intense, physical and nerve-racking game. Penalties, injuries and nonstop action kept both sidelines on the edges of their seats. It was a pivotal match, as it unofficially decided who has the best chance of going to playoffs.

Matt Mendoza kicked it into high gear Thursday evening for The Cool Guys (coach Alan Gotts, sponsor Ranch House Restaurant) scoring the 1st goal in this pivotal match against Prime Time (coach Tom Farrar, sponsor Mike’s Pizza Co.).

Prime Timer Troy Durkee tied it up with a nice follow-through shot. Issac Shillig fired a shot to the lower corner of the net, Cool Guy keeper Cesar Galvez had a foot on it, but to no avail.

Cool Guy Alec Gotts tied up the game, followed shortly by Luis Enciso’s goal, making it 3-2 Cool Guys halftime.

Second half both teams were playing hard and fast for a victory. Shillig scored for Prime Time tying it up again off a corner kick from Cody Draa. A PK was awarded to Prime Time, Draa took the kick placing it well out of the keeper’s reach putting Prime Time ahead! Incredible defense by lightening-fast sweepers Gregory Kirk and Orion Zorich. Tenacious goalkeeping by Carlos Gotts, Cesar Galvez and Chase Hawes kept this intense match under control. Final 4-3 Prime Time. Great Soccer!!

U-12 Burgundy Beasts vs. Rebels
By Sandy Sprio

Saturday, Sept. 25 the Burgundy Beasts (coached by Jeff Neeley and Señor Shillig, sponsored by Mountain Auto Body ) took the field against the Rebels (coached by Matt and Cristal Vivirito, sponsored by La Sierra Restaurant).

An ambitious first shot attempt by Ericka Steere and an amazing goal were made by Gabino Pinida off the tips of the goalies highest reach over outstretched fingers into the goal!

Elliana Schillig had 4 goal attempts but the Rebels were not letting anything else into their goal.

In the second quarter, Isabella Spiro had a defensive header that looked painful but she kept on playing. The Rebels made their first goal. Alex on the defense had a front layout, but jumped up onto his feet like a professional, followed by several goal attempts.

An amazing half field kick by Maria Calderon and hustle by Kolby Gameros were memorable. Gabino Pinida took 2 defensive headers straight in the face but shook them off and the Rebels scored 6 more goals. The final score: 7-1 Rebels.
