St Mary’s soccer

In dramatic fashion, the Bison’s beat Central Baptist in a #2 seed vs #3
seed semi-final match-up yesterday to advance to our first ever NFCAA
championship.  Both
teams played cautiously throughout the entire match and were very
deliberate when choosing their opportunities to go on the attack.  Mobin
Abdollahi continued his
recent hot streak by netting his 5th goal of the season off a left footed
shot just outside the 18 yard line that gave our team the edge on the
scoreboard.
Unfortunately, our lead was short lived as the Lions were able to strike
back with a shot that was just over the head and out of the reach of Isa
Habeeb to tie the
game 1-1 at halftime.  In the 2nd half, both teams had their fair share of
chances to score and put the game away, but in the closing minutes it was
clear that this
match was not going to be decided in regulation.  NFCAA league playoff
rules require a double 5 minute sudden death overtime period.  If neither
team can score
after the overtime periods, the game will proceed to a 5 player shootout
to determine the winner.  The Bison’s game plan for overtime was to make
sure our players
kept their emotions in check.  When you get too emotional on the field,
you begin to do things tactically that you wouldn’t ordinarily do.  Both
teams were careful
to not allow any defensive breakdowns and after 10 minutes of overtime the
game remained knotted 1-1.  In a strategic move, the Bison’s changed
goalies for the
shootout and opted  to go with Nick Barrus in between the posts.  The
Bison’s won the coin toss and elected to shoot first in a calculated plan
to put the pressure
on our opponent that if we had scored on our first attempt, Central
Baptist would feel the extra burden to answer.  Brady Bartell, Ryan
Brzezinski, Farhad Ghorbani,
and Magdi Mohammed each stepped up for a goal while Nick Barrus was able
to make a few saves to give the Bison’s the victory .  Our players and
fans were excited to
see us come out on top and look forward to participating in the
championship game against #1 seed Chesterton Academy on Thursday at home
at 4pm.  Please wish the
our team congrats and good luck.

Overall Record: 8-5

NFCAA Record: 6-3

ESDAA Record: 2-2

Individual Stats:

Mobin Abdollahi: 1 goal(5th of the season)

Brady Bartell: 1 goal(5th of season)

Ryan Brzezinski: 1 goal(2nd of the season)

Farhad Ghorbani: 1 goal(2nd of the season)

Magdi Mohammed: 1 goal(2nd of the season)

random deafsports thoughts

When a deaf team (in any sport) is #1 in the
nation, DeafDigest Sports always calls it as
the Team of the Year.

These excited schools make the announcement
that they are national champions.

This is not correct. National champions
survive elimination tournaments. The
Team of the Year is hand-picked.

Two different things.

But if these schools still call themselves
National Champions, DeafDigest Sports is
not going to make it an issue!
