energized Field House crowd.

Gallaudet (17-16) won the first two sets by the same 25-22 score before it
dropped the third set 14-25 to the Wildcats (14-17). The match came down
to the fourth set where the Bison won 25-16.

Kansas football

*Football Story 2018*

*Kansas School for the Deaf*

*William Richard Ward Head Football Coach*

On Saturday, October 27, the KSD football team played  their last home
game
of the season against Arkansas School for the Deaf. This football season
has
been amazing with six wins and one loss.  Our seniors had a great season
and will be missed next year. They include: Zander Syamnsky, Tayte
McCaskey, Tyler Mayfield, Joshua Brodie, Troye Johnson, and Donnie
Hallmark.

ASD’s Head Coach and I had agreed prior to the game, that the time clock
would run continually from the beginning of the game until the end, with
12
minutes each quarter.  A normal game has 10 minutes each quarter.  I
wanted
both KSD and ASD to enjoy game. The final score was 38 to 16. I want all
schools to feel competitive and comfortable with the results.

The weather was nice and warm on Saturday with temperatures hovering
around
70 degrees at 2:00 PM when we started the game. KSD played very good and
demonstrated great sportsmanship.  After the game, I met with the KSD
boys’
football team then later asked the ASD football team to join us.  I told
both teams how proud I was of them and that they showed good sportsmanship
by playing fairly.

I want to thank all of the staff and students for supporting our football
program. I am looking forward to seeing the boys for our upcoming
basketball season.  Basketball is more challenging than football as it is
a
very  mental sport.  I am looking forward to coaching our boys in
basketball!

Marie Philip School Volleyball tournament report.

Date: Tuesday October 30, 2018
Location: Montrose School, Medfield, MA
Result: Montrose 3, MPS 0 (25-22, 25-16, 25-16)

Today the #5 seeded Marie Philip School Lady Ghosts traveled Montrose to
take on the #1 seeded Montrose Mavericks in the Independent Girls
Conference volleyball semifinals.  It was a rematch of last year’s
semifinals where Montrose came to our school and won 3-0.  It pains me to
say so as a History teacher, but history repeated itself.  Once again
Montrose’s senior MVP, #17 Isabelle Heron, starred in receiving, digging,
blocking, and especially attacking.  Our players and coaches have a lot of
respect for her and we knew as long as she played well, Montrose was going
to be very hard to beat.  Well, she brought her A game today.  However,
her teammates were very good too and they and made her job easier.

We tried everything to prepare for the match.  Our unbelievable manager
Christine Vargas put down very meticulous data of our two previous matches
against Montrose this season.  I came to their home match on my afternoon
off last week to scout them and their opponent.  Our girls studied and
discussed scouting reports together on the bus ride to the match.  We fine
tuned ourselves in yesterday’s first round victory to bring momentum to
Medfield the next day.  All that preparation just wasn’t enough.  Our team
is still very young (half our players are middle schoolers) and our
individual players are still progressing towards being great volleyball
players and towards being a great volleyball team.  In the meantime we
wish Montrose good luck as they host #2 seeded Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall in
the championship match Thursday afternoon.

Oh yes, the match itself.  We started well and lost the first set by a
close score of 25-22. We were hoping we could continue to make
improvements for the rest of the match and pull off the same comeback win
we achieved yesterday.  Unfortunately the Mavericks improved much faster
than our Lady Ghosts improved!  Montrose were always a step ahead of us
and won the next two sets by the score of 25-16 for a 3-0 sweep.  It was
an emotional match for the Lady Ghosts but they were very mature about the
result and understanding of our need to improve ourselves to be contenders
next year in the IGC and in future Deaf school tournaments.

We end the 2018 fall volleyball season with a 16-12 record (7-7 IGC).  The
coaches are very proud of our girls for adapting to a new offense and
playbook, for all improving their individual skills, for giving our school
a second consecutive winning record, for winning the Deaf Awareness Week
tournament last month, and for being wonderful young women who always
brightened the coaches’ afternoons and evenings!  We thank the MPS and
volleyball communities for always supporting us over the seasons.

Fremont football

away playoff game against Fort Bragg, Friday night November 2nd

This game is a part of the NCS/Les Schwab Tires Football
Championships – Division 5″ tournament.

Fremont is seeded #13 in the 16-team playoff bracket

Fort Bragg is seeded #4

……………………………………………….

Fremont sports

After a great Senior Night game, the Varsity Football and Cheerleading
team is back in the NCS Playoffs and will travel to Fort Bragg on Friday
in an attempt to continue our great season.  The Volleyball team ended
their season in a loss against Berean Christian completing a memorable
season in which they won a school record 26 games!  Many female athletes
will begin with basketball tryouts this week and we will release the
schedule in due time when it is ready however the first game will not be
until after the fall break.  Finally, the Cross Country team has their
final league meet tomorrow before heading into the BCL Championship and
the NCS.  Good luck everybody!

Athlete of the Week – HAN MYAT.  This young man has never been late to or
missed a practice this year.  He signed up the year to be a manager but
then began to show up in his helmets and pads.  Since he is also one of
our hardest working player.  He deserves to score a touchdown at the
recent game.

Athlete of the Week – JADA AND JADE DAWSON.  The love of the game is seen
often through the sisters. Our season ended earlier than we thought and we
can’t let the opportunity to recognize the sisters who has given it all.

Our senior, middle blocker, Jada Dawson wears her love for volleyball on
her sleeve and always ignites passion in games.  Her commitment to the
game is always apparent, she usually is the last one to leave practice.
Desire to understand more about the game, has higher understanding which
gives her ability to coach her teammates. She has evolved to a leader and
consistent force this season. Jada holds 14 top ten records in volleyball
and it is due to her work ethics and commitment to the game.

Feisty yet steady describes her game, her killer service aces have given
us some nice cushion in our games. Jade Dawson is also often the last one
to leave the gym, practicing with her sister. The setter, who hit her 1000
career assists this season has the hands. Her hard work in improving her
service and defense and accommodating different style of hitters among her
team has delivered some beautiful plays this season. Jade has 12 top ten
records in volleyball as well.

The sisters have given us great four years and is deserving of this honor
for all their commitment and service to the volleyball program.

Marie Philip School Volleyball playoffs report.

Date: Monday October 29, 2018
Location: Landmark School, Beverly, MA
Result: MPS 3, Landmark 1 (20-25, 25-18, 26-24, 25-16)

Today the #5 seeded Marie Philip School Lady Ghosts traveled to the #4
seeded Landmark School for the first round of the Independent Girls’
Conference playoffs.  We were missing three players today but our players
put the team first and refused to give up on the match.  We knew Landmark
had a very strong home court advantage and we also knew if we could win a
set there then we would have a chance to win the match.

In the first set we committed 5 service errors and several
miscommunication errors that ruined great passes and gave the Vikings free
points.  A comeback attempt fell short and Landmark won the first set
25-20.

Between sets the coaches told the girls that we couldn’t give them free
points through service errors.  We also reviewed our defense and how to
counter Landmark’s attacking and free balls.  Our players were perfect in
their serving for the rest of the game – we made zero errors in the final
three sets!!!  Our consistency surprised the Vikings in the 2nd set and we
took it 25-18.

We swapped to the same side of the court we struggled with in the first
set for our third set.  Landmark had an early lead, but to their surprise
the Lady Ghosts became more consistent and slowly chipped away at their
lead.  We were able to outlast them 26-24 to take the 2-1 lead.

Our digging defense and hustle play starred in the fourth set.  We won it
25-16 to win the match 3-1 for our first ever IGC playoff match win.

Everyone starred in today’s game.  Freshman Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn, 7th
graders Rita Child and Chloe Martin, and 6th grader Faith Kirlis all
played their BEST games of the season!!!  Zora had 11 kills and 2 blocks,
Rita had 13 service points, 2 kills, and 3 digs, Chloe set her season high
with 9 assists, and Faith had 3 receptions and her left side defense was
impenetrable.  The other five players were all superb and supported each
other on the court and from the bench to put the team first and help us
win today.  This was the best match I have coached in my five years for
MPS.  Our girls were incredible today.

Our IGC league semifinals is tomorrow at 4 P.M.  We will visit the #1
seeded Montrose School, where we defeated them earlier this season 3-1.
This season has been a great ride so far and we will do our best to extend
it for as long as possible.  Our overall record is 16-11 and our league
record is 7-6.

TEAM STATS
19 Kills and 16 Assists
19 Aces, 88% serving, and 60 service points

random deafsports thoughts

for one deaf football player for the past three seasons,
it was fun for him.

Two years ago – played 8 man football

Last year – played 11 man football

This season – played 6 man football

He transfered two times, meaning full exposure
to different types of football

His current coach said:

more fun for him!

ESDAA 2018 Volleyball – MPS team report.

FRIDAY 10/26 – Pool A Round Robin

St. Mary’s – won 25-14

NYSD – lost 25-24

Delaware – won 25-16

Lexington – won 25-17

Record: 3-1, 1st in Pool A (Western Pennsylvania won Pool B with a 5-0
record)

SUMMARY – St. Mary’s Bison showed improvements from last year in the
opening match and would eventually qualify for the Gold Bracket.  The
Fanwood Tornadoes played their best match of the tournament and defeated
us for the first time in two years fair and square.  The Delaware Hawks
had all middle school players, I believe, but they hung with us for the
first half of the match before we pulled away.  The fourth match was our
highlight as we beat the Lexington Blue Jays, who also finished the day
3-1, to win the pool on tiebreakers and secure a first round bye for the
Gold Bracket.

SATURDAY 10/27 – Gold Bracket (for top 6 of 11 teams from pool play)

Semifinals vs. Rochester – lost 2-0 (26-24, 25-11)

3rd place vs. Lexington – lost 25-21

SUMMARY – In the semifinals, the Lady Ghosts rallied from a big first set
deficit to lead 24-23 before errors did us in.  Our girls felt like they
gave that set away to #3 seeded Rochester, and couldn’t recover for the
next set.  The Wildcats became the clear second best team of the
tournament with a dominant 2nd set win over our young Lady Ghosts.  For
the 3rd place match, Lexington played more consistently than we did and
they were able to beat MPS for the first time in three years to earn the
trophy.  Congratulations to WPSD for winning the championship match over
Rochester 2-0 for the Lions’ 3rd consecutive ESDAA title.  Congratulations
as well to Sabrina Rodrigues and Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn for being among
the tournament all-star winners.  Finally, we would like to thank the
NYSD-Fanwood personnel and community for a very successful ESDAA
tournament.

We came into the tournament seeded #1 with the aim of winning our first
ESDAA championship.  Yesterday watching WPSD and Rochester was a good
reality check that we still have a ways to go to be championship
contenders.  What both coaches are most proud of from the tournament is
the youth of our players.  The other five schools in the Gold Bracket had
a total of 4 middle school players in their rosters.  We alone had six,
and none of them were satisfied with our end result.

Our Lady Ghosts will use what we learned from the victories and defeats
this weekend to prepare us for the less intensive IGC league
single-elimination playoffs on Monday, where we ended the regular season
in 5th place with a 6-6 record being the only school with middle
schoolers.  Our overall record currently stands at 15-11.

Gary Klingensmith

part of newspaper story

MILLERSBURG — In a game Juniata coach Gary Klingensmith was worried the
team would be flat, it instead dominated the line of scrimmage on both
sides of the ball in a 55-7 win over Millersburg in Tri-Valley League
football Friday night.

Juniata (2-7, 2-6) made it apparent that it wanted to establish the
running game early and often and it paid off big.

Juniata closes out the season with a home game against Newport Oct. 26.

note:
It is Klingensmith’s 301st career win. This deaf coach steps down
after 50 coaching seasons as the game with Newport will be his
last coaching game.

random deafsports thoughts

Does DeafDigest Sports editor trust maxpreps, which ranks
all high school teams in common sports such as football
and basketball?

Yes and no.

Yes, only that it is a reasonable estimate of strength
of a high school team when compared with their own
opponents. Reasonable estimate, yes, but an exact
estimate, no way!

No, because some leagues do not permit games outside
of their own league play. As an example, New York
City’s Public Schools Athletic League do not allow
outside games in football. This being said, how can
one compare the strength of a New York City football
team with the strength of a high school team, say in
California – if there is no common basis of comparison?

Enough said!

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team closed out its
2018 season with a 9-0 shutout against Trinity Washington University under
the lights at Hotchkiss Field on homecoming weekend Saturday night.

Gallaudet’s seniors shined on Senior Day as the duo of forward Brittany
Mallach (Milton, Ontario) and midfielder Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.)
combined to scored seven of the nine goals. The pair also assisted on two
goals each. Mallach, the all-time leading scorer in Gallaudet history,
left her mark as she scored five goals and two assists in her final game.

Gallaudet dances past Alfred State to victory on homecoming

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University football team and 3,185 alumni,
students, faculty, staff and supporters danced the afternoon away on a
cold, wet and breezy Saturday as they celebrated a 13-9 Bison victory at
Hotchkiss Field over Alfred State College in an Eastern Collegiate
Football Conference (ECFC) game on homecoming weekend.

Gallaudet (3-3, 3-1 ECFC) took the lead for good from Alfred State (0-8,
0-4 ECFC) late in the third quarter, when junior slot Damonte Bray
(Clinton, Md.) scored on a 14-yard run into the end zone. Bray’s score
capped off a five-play, 75-yard drive that took just over two minutes.

The Bison defense stepped up in the fourth quarter and kept the Pioneers
out of the end zone. Alfred State’s first possession in the fourth quarter
was a quick three-and-out followed by a six-play drive that covered nine
yards. Senior linebacker Demontrai Lewis (Trinity, Texas) sacked Pioneer
quarterback Carter Harman for a loss of four yards on that drive.

Georgia football, we player a very good Louisiana team Saturday. Due to

looked back. Hats off to the players and coaches of both teams, it was a

Lost to the Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf today, 50-8.  It started
out pretty good, we only trailed 8-0 after the first quarter.  The second
quarter, too many mistakes led Minnesota to run off 22 points to take the
30-0 lead at the half.  We were able to score in the 3rd, but more
mistakes
enabled Minnesota to pull away and get the clock running (35 point rule).
We had 4 turnovers, 3 by fumble and an interception.  One fumble led to a
Minnesota touchdown. We also turned it over on downs a couple of times.

Jayden Kohl led us on offense with 15 rushed for 76 yards and the
touchdown.  He also added the 2 point PAT.  Damien Holste added 53 yards
on
9 carries.  Our passing game was nonexistent, going 0 for 9 with the
interception.

Defensively, Holste led us with 6 unassisted tackles, 8 total, and 2 pass
knockdowns.  Gregory Musinde-Kazeba added 5 unassisted tackles, 7 total,
and a pass knockdown.  Angel Torres added 4 unassisted tackles, including
a
QB sack, 8 total, and forced a fumble.

We finish 1-6.  Three players played their last game for ISD today: Ben

The lady Bisons traveled to Fanwood this weekend for the annual ESDAA
volleyball tournament. Friday they participated in round robin play that
set them up for bracket play on Saturday. The girls finished 5th overall
in the tournament and Cameron Cole was named to this years allstar team.
Congratulations to all our players on a great tournament and season.

Game break downs are as follows:

SMSD v. Fanwood
The lady bisons came out strong in the competitive match. Elsie Watson
lead the team with 4 service points in this one set match. Emma Foster had
3 digs and Cami Cole had another two which helped the girls win 25-23
against Fanwood.

SMSD v. Marie Phillips
The lady Bisons took on the number 1 seeded team in their second match.
The girls struggled to stay in their groove against MP and ended with a
14-25 set score.

SMSD v. DSD
in their third set, the girls took on a very young Delaware team.  Due to
their inexperience, the lady Bisons had an easy time taking on DSD and
showed great sportsmanship by ?missing? a few key plays and serves to give
them more of a fighting chance. Julia Bronnenberg had an impressive 8
service points in a row before her first ever attempt at over hand
serving. The lady Bisons won 25-16 for their second win of the round
robin.

SMSD v. Lexington
For their final match up of the day the lady Bisons took on Lexington
school for the deaf in a very close battle. After some long volleys and
some great teamwork the girls fell in an impressive 19-25 game. Cameron
Cole had 2 attacks and one kill while Julia Bronnenberg added in 2 attacks
and 2 kills of her own. Emma Foster had 3 great digs but it just wasn?t
enough to get past Lexington.

Saturday morning, the lady Bisons took on their rivals, the lady wildcats
from RSD in a best of three matchup. The girls new this would be a battle
as they?ve already faced the wildcats twice this year. The first game the
lady Bisons came out ready to play. And held RSD to a 19-25 set.  Julia
Bronnenberg was a sniper at the service line and managed 3 service points
and 2 aces. Cameron Cole racked up 3 attacks and another 2 kills at the
net. Emma Foster Elise Watson and Kearah Kelly all contributed to some
amazing volleys with over passes and saves that kept the girls alive.

Thank you,
Coach Chuba & Coach Daley

random deafsports thoughts

Gallaudet homecoming day football games means a lot
to players, alumni, administration, parents, friends
and the administration.

Yesterday’s win over Alfred State was made possible
by a last ditch defensive stand that prevented them
from scoring the winning touchdown in the dying
seconds.

DeafDigest Sports never forgot the 25-14 homecoming
day win over DC Teachers College in 1970.

Gallaudet was leading 19-14, when DC Teachers
College was marching down the field in the dying
seconds. At that time DC Teachers College was a
bitter cross-town rival of Gallaudet and both
teams loved to beat each other in football.

Anyway, the DC Teachers College attempted a pass;
middle linebacker Tom Bastean, smelling a pass,
dropped back and intercepted it – and ran about
75 yards for the touchdown that put the game
out of reach. It was Gallaudet’s second win of
the season. Next week, Galladuet defeated American
University in the last game of season to make it
a 3-win season. It was Gallaudet’s most wins in a
season since the great 6-1-1 record in 1930!

DC Teachers College? It was absorbed into the
University of District of Columbia system.

newspaper story

Bear-Hornets rip SC 58-18 for 1st win

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Alfonza Robinson accounted for six total touchdowns,
and the combined North Carolina Schools for the Deaf eight-player football
team responded to an early deficit by scoring the next 30 points en route
to a 58-18 rout of South Carolina School for the Deaf on Saturday.

There was no punting in the contest as the Bear-Hornets  amassed 324 yards
rushing. Robinson accounted for 236 of that total on just 10 carries,
scoring on runs of 50, 58, 28, 25, 40 and 49 yards.

After South Carolina struck first on a 45-yard pass from quarterback
Andrew Bibbs to Cole Haywood, NCSsD went on a four-touchdown spree.
Robinson had three scoring runs in that span, and Jeremiah Deans added a
58-yard interception return.

In the second half, Robinson tacked on three more long TD runs before Saw
Ka Lu Taw returned a fumble 38 yards to complete the scoring.

Deans rushed seven times for 48 yards and had two interceptions, both in
the first half. The Bear-Hornets led 30-12 at halftime and expanded the
lead to 50-18 after three quarters.

I don’t think I expected us to play as well as we did,” NCSsD coach
Leonard Baker said.  “There really was not very many flaws. I was
pleased with our effort, focus and overall play. We had important
contributions from all of our players. We are a good team when everyone is
there.”

Malik Brayboy had nine tackles for the Bear-Hornets. Robinson added eight.

The Bear-Hornets will face Georgia School for the Deaf on Saturday, Nov. 3
on the campus of Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf. It will be
the only game on the campus this season and will serve as homecoming, in
addition to the season finale.

Fremont football

There was a great display of sportsmanship at the Varsity Football Game
last night between Harbor High School in Santa Cruz and California School
for the Deaf Fremont.  First of all, they willingly added us on their
schedule on a short notice on their bye following our third forfeit of the
season so that we could have a Senior Night on their campus.

During a timeout, the California School for the Deaf players were
surprised when coach Warren Keller instructed them not to tackle Harbor
High School’s #52, their hard working senior linemen and he then galloped
for a long touchdown.  On the following drive, the reaction from the
players and fans were priceless when they figured out what was happening
as CSD’s #34, Han Myat, a junior Alternative Curriculum student with
cerebral palsy checked in the game and scored a 82-yard rushing touchdown!

Han is an inspirational student-athlete who has been on the team since day
one and has insisted on leaving his football gear during camp on when
actually signed up as a manager.  After 100% attendance and punctuality,
he deserves this touchdown and a smile from ear to ear on the trip back.
Han and this display of sportsmanship from Harbor High School is exactly
why we play, watch, and coach sports!

The Luck of the Hearing Aid!

There have been some “luck” stories of
deaf coaches looking for hidden and overlooked
deaf athletes.

A Gallaudet coach saw a deaf athlete put on
a hearing aid. He approached that athlete.

It was the first time the athlete heard of
Gallaudet and enrolled at the university.

That athlete was one of the better players
on the team!

After 50 years, Klingensmith says it’s time for a new coach

part of newspaper story

MIFFLINTOWN — Gary Klingensmith joined an elite fraternity this year
when he coached his 300th high school football victory — in his 50th
season, no less, all at the same school.

Juniata’s coach, who has been on the sideline for 520 games to date,
will be part of a less exclusive club when he wakes up Saturday morning:
retired high school football coach.

Klingensmith told his players, his coaches and the school district earlier
this week that Friday’s home game against Newport will be his last.
Family and friends are encouraging former players to attend.

He said it wasn’t an easy decision, nor one he’s been keeping under
wraps.

It’s not a lack of interest in football. It’s a greater interest in
family. Klingensmith wants to spend more time with his grandchildren.

“I still have a lot of gas in the tank,” he said. “It’s just the
fact that I have six grandchildren playing sports and I don’t get to see
them. That’s big. They’re all playing fall sports, too.”

note:
Gary is deaf, played football at Penn State and coached Gallaudet
football three seasons in the 1960′s before moving on to
Juniata HS.

His Gallaudet football wins were big:
– defeated DC Teachers College to snap a 25-game losing streak
– defeated Frostburg for the only Gallaudet victory over them in modern era
– defeated Shepherd (ditto as with Frostburg)
– defeated Lorton for the only win in short series against them

His best Gallaudet player was Eddie Gobble who played one season
with Virginia Sailors in the Atlantic Coast Football League,
at that time, a NFL’s “farm league”

random deafsports thoughts

A former basketball coach at a deaf school said that his
team would play its first game of season against a school
that has already played 10 games! He wasn’t too happy about
the scheduling issues – but the athletic director told him
that weather gets pretty much bad between December through
March, hence the reason for these numerous November games!

*Football Story 2018*

*Kansas School for the Deaf*

*William Richard Ward Head Football Coach*

On Saturday, October 20, the KSD football team finally played at our home
game at Kansas School for the Deaf football field from the “road
killer” in
the three games in a row. KSD played football game against Iowa School for
the Deaf on KSD homecoming.

The weather was nice and cool here with temperatures hovering around 60
degrees at 2:00PM when we started the game. In the first quarter, KSD
quickly scored 34 points against ISD. I decided to tell the referees to
run
time clock from first quarter to the ending of quarter. I don’t want to
humiliate them. Also I told my boys not to rush ISD offense. The final
score was 48 to 16. I never let my team beat any deaf schools by more than
around 40’s points. It should beat them by between 30 and 40 points. We
must respect any deaf schools.

I am impressed with Iowa School for the Deaf players and coaches whom I
always chatted with them. ISD players worked hard and won’t give up till
the final game. ISD players and KSD players enjoyed at Homecoming party.

The last home game will be on Saturday, October 27th KSD will play
football
game against Arkansas School for the Deaf. ASD has winless season, because
they have a team first time, last year they had no football team. Iowa
School for the Deaf beat ASD, 36 to 28. I am not planning to crush ASD, I
always respect ASD coaches, especially Tommy Varner.

random deafsports thoughts

Deaf school coaches have complained that mainstreamed
programs take deaf athletes from their schools.

It works the other way around in some schools. Few
mainstreamed athletes, frustrated at lack of playing
opportunities in their high schools, have joined
deaf school athletic teams over the years.

One of them quarterbacked the school football team.

Another one became the sixth volleyball player on
the deaf team, saving the season from being
cancelled.

Wisconsin volleyball

Last night was a bittersweet night. The first time we faced RCCS this
season we lost to them 0-3; 5-25, 18-25, 19-25. After playing in two
tournaments and qualifying for state quarterfinals and facing number one
seed the girls picked up on new skills and improved their own playing as a
team. It was an amazing night showing true Firechick pride. Extremely
proud
of the team, they played their hearts out. It was a bittersweet night for
me because we have four seniors who were getting ready to take flight and
was the last night that I would be able to have them under my wings as
their Volleyball Coach. Comparing them between their Freshman year to now,
they have grown tremendously with their level of play and their skills.
Okay, I’m rambling on here now…. We lost a great fight 2-3; 25-22,
25-22,
18-25, 21-25, 16-18. Season record is 22-10 which is an improvement from
last year’s record of 11-16. Good luck in the paths you choose in your
future Seniors, will miss you girls!

Season record 22-10

6-man football rules, continuing issues

from another GPSD member school

The coaches didn’t vote on GPSD going to 6-man next year.
The AD’s did.

The only reason they came to the agreement was because we were
getting tired of the inconsistency of going back and forth
between 6-man rules and 8-man rules, as a couple of our
schools were playing only by 6-man rules at their home games.

6-man rules have changed a bit since the eighties and nineties.

The player receiving the snap (the quarterback for the most part)
can either hand off the ball or pitch it out.  That player simply
cannot advance the ball until he has done so.

Iowa, as one of the GPSD teams, does not have 6-man football
in the state. The referees assigned to Iowa games may have a hard
time following the rules. As a result they messed up on a couple
of calls due to their lack of 6-man experience.

……………………………………..

American soccer

American School for the Deaf Tigers hosted Hebrew High School of New
England on a cold afternoon Tuesday for the final game of the season.
Briefly before the game we honored our lone senior Dylan Mallach and
recognized him and his parents for four years of commitment to the team.

  The Tigers started fast as Dylan Mallach scored on a header in the 2nd
minute of the game for his 5th goal of the season. It did not take long
before Dylan struck a second time in the 18th minute with a kick finding
the back of the net. The Tigers dominated the ball throughout the first
half but HHNE was able to fend off the attack throughout the remainder of
the first half.

  The second half was highlighted by both teams being aggresive on
offense. HHNE was able to capitalize on an ASD defender missed kick near
the box as the ball found the lower right back of the net. Tigers
maintained the 2-1 lead. Sophmores Matthew Beltran and Omar Shariff
remained aggressive on offense, both missing shots just over the crossbar
from 35 yards away. HHNE weaved through the Tiger defense and had a wide
open shot to the goal however Dylan Mallach (who moved back to his
defensive position in the second half) alertly prevented the goal by
heading it out. HHNE nearly struck again as the ball bounced off the cross
bar. With 8 minutes to play Omar Shariff made a beautiful ankle breaking
play that sent the HHNE defender to the ground untouched but alas the shot
on the goal went just wide to the left from 25 yards out.

  Game ended 2-1 and the Tigers ended the season on a high note. Record on
the season is 3-8-2. Johan Garfalo finished with the team best 7 goals,
Dylan Mallach notched 6 goals. Both players played mainly defense. Several
other sophomore players notched their first career goals this season and
the future looks bright with the sophomore and freshman classes.

Location: Marie Philip School, Framingham, MA

Result: MPS 3 Cambridge School of Weston 1 (25-19, 21-25, 25-10, 25-9)

Today we hosted the Cambridge School of Weston for an IGC match.  It was
seniors’ night and during the 2nd-3rd set break, we honored Amabelys
Cordero and Naralee Perez for their contributions to our MPS volleyball
community.  Our starters adjusted to playing on a Monday and got a feel
for the Gryphons in the first two set and we split those sets 1-1.  Our
serving and attacking location was much stronger for the 3rd and 4th sets
and our set wins were much more convincing.  We will end the IGC regular
season in 5th place out of 7 teams with a 6-6 record and qualify for the
6-team league playoffs next Monday.  We will visit the #4 seeded team for
the quarterfinals.

However, first things first.  We have the day off tomorrow and after that
we will practice hard to be at our best for the ESDAA tournament this
Friday and Saturday.  Our season record is now 12-8.

Rhode Island soccer

10/19

The ESDAA weekend has come! The very tournament that we have been
preparing
and building up our team toward all season long is finally here — our
team
was pumped up and ready to defend our home field against six other schools
at the 4th annual ESDAA Division II Soccer Tournament!

We opened our tournament as the #5 seed, which meant we would be going up
against #4 Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf. Our team was ready to go
and the energy level was high. We started out the game on an aggressive
note, trying to get on the scoreboard first to get our school’s crowd
fired
up. MKSD put two of their best players on the defensive line, which gave
us
some challenges. The Colts was able to convert twice on counter-attacks
where our goalie did not come out to challenge the ball, which has been a
weakness for us all season long if our team didn’t get fully back on
defense.

We were looking at a 2-0 halftime deficit — but our team was not
deterred.
We had come back from two-down in the past and we knew that we could do it
if our offense played together and wear down their defense. We executed
our
gameplan to perfection, but had a tough time pushing the ball past their
goaltender… until with two minutes remaining in the game, we were
finally
able to find the back of the net! The score was 2-1 now and MKSD was
having
a hard time containing our attack… we knew we could do it, but we had to
make good use of time. We had two more opportunities, but couldn’t tie the
game up and lost 2-1.

We would move on to the consolation bracket and into the 5th/6th place
game
— where we would eventually draw up a rematch with NYSSD.

Timothy J. – 1 Goal

—–

10/20

We had a rematch with NYSSD in the 5th/6th place game. We’ve played them
twice last year and once this year — all games where we were either
leading or tied at halftime, only to end the game on the losing end. Our
team was determined not to let this happen again.

We switched our midfielder with our sweeper in order to stir up more
offense like we were able to accomplish in the second half against MKSD –
and it worked to perfection. Our sophomore forward Jayden was able to earn
a hat-trick, scoring three goals against NYSSD in the first half alone.

In the second half, we decided to move around players in our formation so
our two players (playing in their last game) could have a chance to score
a
goal — and they were able to do so! It was a wonderful game all-around on
both sides of the field and we were able to come out victorious, 6-0 in
our
last game of the season!

Our team finished the ESDAA Division II Soccer Tournament in 5th place out
of 7 teams – and most importantly, wrap up our season with our first win
of
the season.

Jayden E. – 3 Goals (10 Goals this season)
Timothy J. – 2 Goals (10 Goals this season)
Juan F. – 1 Goal (3 Goals this season)

St Mary’s soccer

The Bisons hit the road this weekend for our 4th annual ESDAA Division II
soccer tournament at Rhode Island School for the Deaf(RISD). This
tournament is the culmination of all the hard work that our team and the
other division 2 soccer programs from around the north east have put forth
this season.

1st GAME : SMSD vs WVSD (qualifier)

After a 7.5 hour drive that included a pit stop in Central NY, we took on
West Virginia School for the Deaf(WVSD) in the 1st round. Although WVSD
didn’t appear to have very many athletes, our coaching staff continued
to remind our players that you can “never let you guard down” against
any opponent. We started attacking immediately and Nick Barrus scored
within the first minute of play. We never looked back and never
relinquished the lead. We had 5 other goal scorers that contributed to our
win including seniors Christian Lawrence and Tyler Mondo-Goodrich who have
been playing goalie and defense for their entire high school careers. It
was nice to see them both enjoy the personal accomplishment of scoring
their 1st goal in their last tournament. The final score was 12-0. We now
move on to the semi finals where we will play against Pennslyvania School
for the Deaf (PSD) who won last years ESDAA soccer championship.

2nd GAME: SMSD vs PSD (semi-finals)

Although the Bisons were prepared, we came out a little tentative and
allowed PSD to dictate the pace of the match. Fortunately, our defense was
able to withstand our opponents initial pressure long enough to allow our
top goal scorer, Nick Barrus, to blast a shot past PSD’d keeper and give
us a 1-0 advantage. That goal gave the Bisons the confidence they needed
to pick up their intensity and instead of playing on our heels, push
forward and attack. In the 2nd half, our defense was able to shut down any
offensive pressure from PSD and rookie midfielder, Ethan Antone, was able
to give us more of a cushion by scoring his 6th goal of the season.
Christian Lawrence collected his 2nd shutout of the tournament and the win
earned us the opportunity to play in the championship game for the first
time since 2007. Tomorrow we will be matched up against long time rival,
Rochester School for the Deaf(RSD).

3rd GAME: SMSD vs RSD (championship)

The ESDAA championship turned into a I-90 classic between the Bisons from
Buffalo, NY & the Wildcats from Rochester, NY. The ironic thing is,  both
teams traveled together on the same bus for 7.5 hours to play against one
another, yet we only live 45 minutes apart. That said, we were greatly
anticipating this matchup seeing is the Wildcats had just defeated us the
weekend before by a 5-2 margin. All the planning and motivational speeches
were over with. If they didn’t know what they needed to do by now, they
were never going to know it. The Bisons opened up the scoring with Nick
Barrus making a beautiful cross and Givon Blackwell doing what he has done
all season which was “finishing” or as we like to call it “picking
up the trash” to give us the lead heading into halftime. Rochester
responded in the 2nd half with back to back goals that were 1 minute apart
giving them the 2-1 edge. Despite some quality opportunities for the
Bisons to even the score, RSD was able to
  hold on to win this year’s championship. Trying to win a championship
is a “process”. It doesn’t happen overnight. Three years ago  our

random deafsports thoughts

Volleyball is a great sport for girls at deaf schools.

Just always wondering about volleyball seasons not being
the same at many deaf schools.

For some schools, the season starts in mid-August. And
for some other schools, the season starts in latter
part of September.

What this means is that some early-starting schools may
have already played as many as 20 matches by the
time late-starting schools have their first match!

Sophomore receiver Todd Honas walked on at Nebraska out of
Aurora, where he set numerous Class B receiving records.

He has now appeared in six of Nebraska’s seven
games this season.

He is deaf and apparently his deafness does not bother
new head coach Scott Frost!

Same policy as always in past years. Schools
that do not turn in their game results for
DeafDigest Sports will not be invited to
nominate their best athletes for Deaf All-
American honors.

6-man football rules

The football coaches in the Great Plains Schools
for the Deaf voted to follow real 6-man rules
for the 2019 football season. It was a majority
vote.

This means no more 6-man football with 8-man rules

What this means is that the quarterback must pitch out
the ball instead of handing off the ball (which is
allowed in 8-man and 11-man football).

Also, 6-man football rules allow linemen to catch
forward passes, which is not permitted in 8-man
football.

Other rules are:
– 15 yards for a first down
– QB can catch the forward pass after pitching out the ball
– a PAT kick is worth 2 points
– a field goal is worth 4 points

One of the Great Plains schools said his state
does not have 6-man football, meaning referees
in the state may not understand 6-man rules!

Gallaudet men’s soccer

Second-half goals propel Gallaudet to victory over Cazenovia

CAZENOVIA, N.Y. – Gallaudet University shut out Cazenovia College, 2-0,
here Sunday afternoon in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men’s
soccer match at a chilly Christakos Field.

Gallaudet (6-9, 4-6 NEAC) scored two second-half goals after the teams
played a scoreless first half.

Freshman Dylan Christoffels (Methuen, Mass.) got GU on the scoreboard with
his third goal of the season at the 51:39 mark in the second half. Fellow
freshman forward Chad Johnson (Gardena, Calif.) headed home his 13th goal
of the season, off an assist from freshman defender Julien Cano (Avondale,
Ariz.), at the 78:38 mark to give the buff and blue some breathing room.

Cazenovia (3-12, 2-8 NEAC) held the edge in shots, 14-9, and took more
shots than Gallaudet in the first or second half but could not get a shot
past Bison goalie Shane Angel (Mechanicsville, Md.), who made five saves

Bison tripped up on the road at Cazenovia

CAZENOVIA, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team lost, 3-1,
to Cazenovia College here Sunday afternoon in a North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) match at a chilly Christakos Field.

The two teams scored goals early in the first half before Cazenovia
(11-4-1, 7-2-1 NEAC) netted a go-ahead goal in the 76th minute and an
insurance goal in the 83rd minute to put the game away.

Gallaudet (6-8-1, 4-5-1 NEAC) is still in the conference playoff hunt but
sit in seventh place, currently, and need a win in its last NEAC match on
Wednesday to have a chance to move up. The top six teams in the conference
standings will make the playoffs.

Sophomore midfielder Sharon Castillo (Dallas, Texas) scored her second
goal this season off an assist from senior midfielder Sabina Shysh
(Tucson, Ariz.) in the 19th minute to tie the match at 1-1.

Cazenovia scored the game’s first goal in the 12th minute on a Cassidy
Rattray goal.

The teams remained tied at 1-1 at the half even though Cazenovia held a
12-5 advantage in shots.

In the second half, Gallaudet had limited scoring opportunities and only
got off one shot. Cazenovia logged 16 shots and scored twice off the foot
of Michael Breeze in the 76th minute and Rattray, again, in the 83rd
minute.

Junior goalie Silvya Levesque (Ballston Spa, N.Y.) made 12 saves in the
loss.

American soccer

Soccer ESDAA Results – American School for the Deaf

ASD traveled to Lexington School for the Deaf on Friday morning to
participate in the annual ESDAA soccer championships. ASD was in pool A
with MPS and WPSD – Very strong opponents.

In the opening game, Johan Garafalo struck first with his fifth goal of
the season (plays mainly defense/sweeper position all year). Tigers
dropped back on defense for remainder of the game, however MPS was able to
get past several defenders and tie the game. Both teams went to a shootout
with MPS taking game one by a score of 1-1 (4-0) over the Tigers.

The Tigers were deflated from the opening game shocking loss and never
gained any traction against an excellent WPSD team losing 3-0 in the
second game of pool play on Friday.

On Saturday the Tigers were placed in the 5th place game by virtue of
finishing 3rd in their pool. Tigers took on NYSD at 11:30 am. The Tigers
displayed a dominating outing with a 4-0 victory over NYSD. Sophmore
sensation Omar Shariff notched a brace (two goals), Johan Garafalo added
his 6th goal of the season and Senior Dylan Mallach capped the scoring
with his third goal of the season.

Johan Garfalo took home an All-Star nod. The team was not sastified with a
5th place finish but they recognized that MPS and WPSD finished 1st and
2nd! Congratulations to all the teams and Thank you to Lexington School
for the Deaf for being a great host!

On Monday October 22 it will be Senior night and the team will recognize
their only senior this year in Dylan Mallach who continues to have an
excellent season as the defensive anchor of the team.

Friday, October 19
We played our first game against American School for the Deaf as it was
the first opening game of tournament. Anyway, we were down by one and we
got tied 1-1 as Luke Florio scored the goal that led to the shootout. We
were so confident in the shootout as we got two balls into the net and our
goalkeeper Dakota Rochette stopped four shots.

MPS 1
ASD 1
(MPS won in the shootout 2-0)

MPS played next game against Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. It
was quite difficult for us to obtain the controlling of the ball as WPSD
kept controlling the possession during the whole game.

MPS 0
WPSD 3

However, we were qualified for the semifinal because our record for the
robin round was 1-1 while ASD has lost two games in the pool play.

Saturday, October 20 -
Marie Philip School played the first game of tournament against Lexington
School for the Deaf in the semifinal. We kept pressuring on Lexington
defensive lines, however, we struggled to get the ball into the net. We
had missed quite a lot of opportunities in scoring. Suddenly, Lexington
scored a goal within 6 minutes before the end of game. We refused to give
up as we kept pressuring and our senior player, Kacey Mohanan made a nice
goal from free kick with 2 minutes of the game. We were forced to get into
the shootout again as we did great job in the shootout. Our goalkeeper
Dakota Rochette stopped 3 out of four shots. When he stopped the last shot
to wrap up the shootout, MPS players were overexcited and celebrating as
we had officially entered the ESDAA championship game for the first time
in school history!

MPS 1
LSD 1
(MPS won in the shootout 2-1)

We played the championship game against Western Pennsylvania School for
the Deaf again. We played with our hearts out and put all of our effort in
the whole game. We’ve improved our possession, better than the first
game against WPSD. WPSD led 1-0 in the halftime. We worked hard to stop
WPSD offensive lines from scoring. We tried to score but unfortunately for
us, time had ran out so quick. I can’t lie that WPSD had a good
acceleration. Coaches are very proud of our team as we are very happy to
get 2nd place!

Congrats to Kacey Mohanan, Dakota Rochette and Slavik Sukhotsev for being
selected as members of All-tournament team. Also, our goalkeeper Dakota
Rochette was selected as Goalie of the Tournament.

1st: WPSD
2nd: MPS

Rochester soccer

Since we were seeded first, we had a bye to the semifinals
(only 7 teams). Our first match was against the winner of RISD
and NJSD. NJSD prevailed by pulling off a 2-1 win against the
host team. We were quite confident in our abilities and knew if
we played our game we would end up on top. However, NJSD had
other plans. Since last year, when we met them in this same
exact game, they have been working hard in the off-season and
it clearly showed during our recent contest. Right from the
whistle, both teams were playing aggressive, offensive minded
soccer. Both teams were battling the middle, working hard to
get shots on goal. Each team had their opportunities outside
the 18, but with experienced goalies in each net, nothing was
getting by for both teams.

Thomas Coates had several shots from far, but none found the
back of the net. However, we were content with the pressure we
were having on them, and knew with patience, and due diligence.
we would break the seal. Near the end of the first half, lo and
behold, Thomas took an outside blast that found the upper 90
and we were ahead 1-0 going into halftime. Even though the
coaching staff was not content with this lead, we knew we just
came off a long car ride, haven’t practiced in a few days, but
as we saw at the end of the first half, we know we were turning
the corner.

We wanted to stay with the same mindset, aggressive Wildcat
soccer. Keep the ball on their side of the field. Don’t sit
back and just defend, defend, defend. That’s how problems
occur. In the second half, we started to see true Wildcat
soccer, the soccer we’ve been working on all season. The
Give-N-Go’s that we’ve been preaching since day 1. We had some
beautiful opportunities in the second half with Alexander
Michalek feeding to Bode who would then pass to Coates, who
would quickly pass back to Aggas. These plays would lead to
some great scoring opportunities. Within a few minutes in the
second half, there it was, a great Give-N-Go by Bode to Thomas
who easily scored on NJSD.

RSD wins 2-0. Radez earns RSD our second bagel of the year, a
team goal we set forth on Day 1. We were back in the
Championship game, something we’ve been working for all season.
Our Ultimate Goal, winning the ESDAA Championship was well
within our reach.

Now, we just sit back and see who we face. Would it be last
year Champions, PSD or our I-90 rival, SMSD?!?! Their game was
next.

Final Score:

RSD: 2
NJSD: 0

Goals:
Coates (2)

Assists:
B. Aggas

Saturday afternoon, a mixture of clouds and sunny blue skies
with a cool temperature of 60 degrees. You couldn’t ask for
better weather in Providence during this time of the year. It
was only fitting that our charter bus companions, SMSD was
going to be what stood in our way from bringing home the
Championship. In our recent match against them, we won pretty
handedly, however, they were missing a few marquee players at
the time. We did not underestimate them one bit as we saw them
take apart PSD in their semifinals game. We knew this game was
going to be a barn burner without a doubt.

Two very well-coached teams with a slew of athletes going at it
with the same goal in mind. SMSD has not won this prestigious
honor in well over a decade, so they were starving to bring it
back to the 716. After last year, we were chomping at the bit
just as much, if not more. We knew both teams would leave it
all on the field this afternoon in front of s standing room
only crowd.

Here we are, 365 days since our loss to PSD in last year’s
championship going against our cross-town rival, SMSD, the very
team we have to drive 8 hours home with.  Again, a mixture of
jitters, nerves, and bad luck (or good luck depending on your
perspective) lead to a standstill for a majority of the first
half.  However, with just under 9 minutes left, SMSD caught us
on our heels. SMSD wingman was dribbling up the side of the
field and was one on one with one of our defenders, and before
we could get in a good position, SMSD sends a beautiful cross
in front of the net, and another SMSD was right there to take a
jumping kick at it which he somehow connected on and found the
back of the net to take a 1-0 lead. DEJA VU! RSD, for the
second straight year is now down 0-1 in the Championship game.
We still had 40 minutes of soccer to play roughly. We don’t
give up. We are Wildcats. WE ARE WILDCATS! When our backs are
against the wall, we RISE UP to the occasion and play even
harder. After a few more missed opportunities on net, we walk
off the field down 0-1 going into halftime.

Coaching staff’s main concern here is to keep the students
optimistic, and understand there is still 30 minutes of soccer
still needed to be played. We needed to focus on what we’re
doing right. We were moving the ball around, winning the
middle. At the same time, we needed to fix the little things,
play our position correctly, trust one another, and play with a
little more urgency in this second half.

What separates a great team from a championship team is a team
that is relentless, gritty to the final minute, and most
importantly, receptive to feedback from their teammates and
coaching staff. If you have a team that is willing to do all
those things, good things are going to happen. We needed to
come out of the gates in this second half with aggressive, RSD
Wildcat Soccer if we wanted to stand a chance against this SMSD
team.

The second half begins and we were just looking better as a
whole. Within 4 minutes into the second half, we were awarded a
corner kick. Bode Aggas shoots a beautiful shot right in front
of the goal, chaos ensues, Gentzke gets a touch on it, pinball
ensues from there as the ball bounces off a couple SMSD
defenders before it finds the back of the net. RSD TIES THE
GAME 1-1! The team is pumped up and the adrenaline is running
on full throttle at this point. The seal is broken. Hopefully,
this one goal would open the flood gates.

A few moments later, Thomas takes a shot 30 yards out, a
beautiful rainbow that clears their goalie’s hands, but would
it drop under the post, and it does!!!! Just like that RSD
takes a 2-1 lead in the championship game. RSD has battled back
ad has put them in good position but there will still plenty of
time left on the clock.

At this point, RSD was playing a little more cautious , so our
attempts on net were not as abundant at this time, but we were
keeping the ball in the middle of the field, not the best
place, but as long as it’s out of striking distance from our
net, the coaching staff was content. With time dwindling, SMSD
made some on the fly adjustments as we expected, since they
needed to score. They were pressuring us a lot more, but our
defense stayed poised and was able to clear out anything that
got within striking distance. On one last attempt by SMSD, it
was only fitting that Thomas Coates steals the ball, and clears
it out of bounds where the clock finally hit 0:00.00. RSD
became ESDAA DIVISION II CHAMPIONS AGAIN !!!!! A huge weight
was lifted off the shoulders of all our players, and RSD was
back on TOP! It was a great weekend for all involved. Our
students not only played hard, but played with class and
represented RSD very well. We tip our hats to SMSD who also
played a great game and we wish them the best of luck as they
move on to basketball.

Final Score:

RSD: 2
SMSD: 1

Goals

Gentzke
Coates

ESDAA DIVISION II CHAMPIONS!

RSD also went on to win the Shooting competition as well.
Earning All-Star honors were Courtney Gentzke and Benjamin
Radez. Earning MVP honors was Thomas Coates

Good luck and Godspeed (as we move on to basketball),

random deafsports thoughts

What is the rarest skill in football as played
in deaf schools?

It is placekicking.

Maryland has a placekicker and it seems he just
almost never misses his points-after-touchdowns
kicks!

Years ago, Maryland had another placekicker,
primarily a soccer player – and he eventually
played soccer and also kicked extra points
at Gallaudet.
