Rhode Island soccer

Rhode Island School for the Deaf’s soccer team played host to Friends
Academy for a 8v8 soccer game on a nice Tuesday afternoon. Our coaches
were looking for improvements from our team from the last two games as
signs of progress as we continually strive to get better in preparations
for the ESDAA Division II Soccer Tournament at NYSSD-Rome next month.

Friends was able to get a nice goal about 10 minutes into the game on a
nice lob over our goaltender, who was playing a little aggressive. Our
star forward Jayden E. was able to knot the game up a few minutes later on
a nice goal. Friends Academy responded with another goal shortly
afterwards, followed by Jayden’s second goal. Friends Academy played very
well with their passing game as no player held on to the ball for too
long, keeping our defense on the move all game long. The first half ended
with a score of 4-2 in Friends Academy favor.

Our coaches provided feedback and tips to our team in hopes of putting
together a better second half. We came out with energy – both teams would
trade goals early on on the second half to bring the score up to 5-3 with
Jayden recording his second hat trick of this season. Our team, just 9
player strong, started to show signs of fatigue, especially on defense as
Friends Academy’s passes opened up more scoring opportunities for their
forwards and the game ended in a 9-3 win for Friends Academy.

Rochester soccer

On Wednesday afternoon we travelled the I-90 to take on our rival, St.
Mary’s School for the Deaf (SMSD) in what would go down as an incredible
match
between two highly talented teams in the ESDAA as both were in the
Championship Game last year. Who would win bragging rights this year? The
up and
coming Bisons or would the Wildcats continue on with their ongoing
I-90 winning streak?
This is why we play the game. The only true way to find out. It was a
beautiful day for some fall ball, the sun was shining, the temperature was
cool, and the
bleachers were at capacity with standing room only. We were at full force
and ready to see what we were made of in our first true game of the
season. No
better way to start off than to play the #1 seeded Bisons for the upcoming
ESDAA Tournament.

As the players took to the field, they understood the magnitude of this
match and what it means to the entire RSD Community. There was a lot at
stake for this
first game of the season, but our student-athletes were poised and ready
to battle.

GAME ON! SMSD came out aggressive, with a few of their new recruits
impressing the Wildcat coaching staff. We were very well aware of a couple
of their
veterans, but some of their younger talent surprised us a bit. Before you
know it, we’re down 0-1 in front of a rambunctious home crowd. Do not fret
as this
was exactly how last year’s championship game went and we all know how
that ended.

Just four minutes later, SMSD made another spectacular play and scored
again to take a dominating 2-0 lead. Could this be the end of a dynasty?
Was there a
new sheriff in town? C’MON PEOPLE!!!! You know who we are! We are
WILDCATS! We don’t back down from a challenge, we don’t give up, we
persevere, we fight
tooth and nail til the bitter end. Why? Because We are WILDCATS! Down 0-2,
we were now fired up and we weren’t going to go without a fight.

Our midfield was finally stepping up, playing both sides of the field,
making solid passes, but SMSD defense was tough, preventing us from
getting any shots
on goal. We were starting to get frustrated. Approaching the end of the
first half, it looked like we were going to be down 0-2, and looking to
make some
serious adjustments at halftime.

However, with time dwindling down, a little scurry erupted at the endline
on their side of the field that resulted in a penalty kick in our favor.
Exactly the
kind of break we needed going into half-time. We put our trust and
confidence in our very own Bode Aggas to get us on the board. He lines up
the shot,
approaches the ball, shoots, DEFLECTED…
SMSD’s goalie makes contact…..but deflected back into the goal!!!!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOL. Still down 1-2, but momentum was now on our side. With
only two minutes
left to go, we were quite satisfied with where we’re at with this game,
considering everything that has transpired this first half.

With a quick steal, and time dwindling down in the first half, Alexander
Michalek took it upon himself to make one last crack of trying to do the
impossible….with Coach Lipitz yelling to shoot the ball as the ref
counted down from 5……4……3……..2……Michalek gets off a toe
kick just past
the center line…..no way……..it’s floating, it may have a
chance…….it’s still going……..its passed all the defenders….still
in the
air….drifting….moving erratically in the air……can it
be……..still going…….approaching the goal……on
target………say it ain’t so…..IT
JUST SNUCK PAST THE GOALIE’S HAND….we’re at 2-2 at HALFTIME!!!!!
Michalek ties the game for RSD!!!!!!! RSD fans go nuts!!!! Jaws drop to
the floor, and
we’re back in this game!

During halftime, the coaching staff kept encouraging RSD to take shots on
their young goalie and to continue to test him. With a small field , you
can take
shots deeper than your standard field. We don’t need to be inside the 18′
to score, we can score from outside [WAY OUTSIDE]. We have the talent and
skill to
do so. Believe in yourself, in your teammates, and take it from the
coaching staff, if you keep firing, they will eventually find the back of
the net.

As our players left to the field, the coaching staff had a great feeling
about this game. With momentum on our side, and SMSD looking a little
deflated, we
knew we had to capitalize early in the half if we wanted to put this game
away. 6 minutes into the second half, Bode Aggas does just that and takes
a shot
outside the 18′ and RSD takes their first lead of the game. From there, we
went on to dominate the second half and control the entire second half
with Radez
earning a half-bagel (allowing no goals in the second half), winning 5-2!

Bode Aggas earned a hat trick and Michalek also piled on one more goal for
RSD. It was a great team effort against a very talented Bisons team. We’re
fully
aware they weren’t at full strength, and we will not overlook this fact
and we look forward to seeing them again at the ESDAA Tournament. We tip
our hats to
the gracious hosts, but leave Buffalo with our heads up high as we now
focus on WPSD for our first homecoming game and our “second” game of the
season!

What….a……game! Thank you to all the fans that made the trek to see
this epic game. We hope to pack the stands this weekend, as we’re going to
need all
the excitement and energy from our “12th man!” First game at 3:30 against
WPSD!!!! LET’S GO ROCHESTER!!!!

Final score:

RSD: 5
SMSD: 2

Goals:

B. Aggas (3)
A. Michalek (2)

St Mary’s soccer

The Bisons soccer team had their home opener this afternoon against their
thruway I 90 rival, the Wildcats from Rochester School for the Deaf.  This
week we all
celebrate deaf awareness week, which made this match even more special for
both schools and their fans! The Bisons were looking to improve on their
play from their
game last week. We started the game fast scoring the first 2 goals. Farhad
Gorbani & Nick Barrus were able to offer up beautiful assists to Ethan
Antone who
capitalized on both shots giving us the lead. Despite some steady play by
keeper Saul Alvira, the Wildcats battled back and closed out the 1st half
with only
seconds remaining by getting the equalizer to knot the game 2-2. Although
the Bisons had their fair share of scoring opportunities in the second
half, it was RSD
that made their shots count and drove up the score to take control of the
contest and ultimately gain the victory 5-2. The Bisons don’t have much
time to dwell on
the loss because we’re right back at it today, in our first NFCAA matchup
against Chesterton. Continue to support our team as we look to get into
the win column.

Overall Record: 0-2

Individual Stats:

Saul Alvira: 5 saves

Ethan Antone: 2 goals(3rd & 4th of the season)

The Bisons soccer team played in their 2nd of back to back games
yesterday.  It was our first contest in our NFCAA 8v8 league.  In past
years, there has been parity
between  all of the teams and games are typically very competitive.  Our
match against the Chesterton Wildcats was no exception.  In the first
half, the Bisons team
looked a little sluggish having just played the night before.  Luckily,
our defense led by Isa Habeeb and Magdi Mohammed were able to keep our
opponents in check
while our mid-field and strikers “found their legs”.  The score at
halftime was only 1-0 in favor of Chesterton.  We discussed that the
deficit could be overcome if
we put in the necessary effort for the next 30 minutes.  That said, the
2nd half looked remarkably different than how we began the match.  The
Bisons were able to
raise their level of intensity and out-worked the Wildcats.  We were
rewarded with a goal by Farhad Ghorbani who has been knocking on the door
to score all season.
With the game being tied, both squads had their share of scoring
opportunities and exchanged the lead twice thanks to a goal from Michael
Norris who came in as
substitute off the bench.  It’s always nice to get some secondary level
scoring.  With the match tied at 2-2 and only 1 minute remaining on the
clock, Nick Barrus
was taken down in the box and he was awarded a penalty kick.
Unfortunately, he missed the shot wide left and play resumed.  With time
winding down, our opponents
put together one last attack that resulted in a great shot that Saul
Alvira could never have saved.  Now with :30 left in the match, the Bisons
attempted one final
comeback but it was too late.  We lost the contest 3-2.  Although
disappointed, the team responded well afterwards knowing that it was the
best half of soccer that
they’ve played so far this year.  Next week, we will be getting back a few
veterans who didn’t play this week and begin preparing for our next match
on October
3rdrd against CAWNY.  Please continue to come out and support your Bisons.

Thanks,

Coach Booke & Coach Leroy

The Lady Bisons took on the Rochester Wildcats yesterday in their third
game of the season. The girls struggled against Rochester’s strong servers
and quick plays
and fell in three straight sets. Julia Bronneberg had two aces while
Aleyshka Rivera had one at the serving line. Cami Cole had two strong
attacks and Elise Watson
and Aleyshka Rivera each chipped in one a piece. Hopefully the girls will
bring the fire back into their next game which happens today at 4:30 in an
attempt to pull
of their first win of the season.

The Lady Bisons took on the Global Charter Gators yesterday afternoon in a
late game. After a disappointing game the day before, the girls had a
little bit more to
prove and set out to do just that. Julia Bronneberg came out on top in all
three sets with an impressive 16 point, 9 aces, and 4 attacks at the net.
Emma Foster and
Kearah Kelly made some impressive saves and showed off their improved ball
handling skills throughout the whole game and racked up another 3 and 2
aces
respectively. Aleyshka Rivera continues to come out of her shell adding 6
points and 2 aces and some great assistance in the front. Cami Cole,
Brionna Zuppa and
Elise Watson chipped in on the floor and helped to achieve our first set
win of the season. We lost in 2 out of 3 sets but definitely showed that
we are here to
play. Our next two games will be away games next week. Please wish the
girls luck as we take our season on the road.
