STATE CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!

Oct 29th, 2016 (10:00 pm)

The University High School Men's Soccer team are your 1A IHSA State Champions!!! It took some work and a lot of concentrated defense, but the Pioneers were able to overcome St. Joseph's High School from Westchester, 3-1. After a scoreless first 30 minutes, the Pioneers found themselves controlling the game and pressing St. Joe's into their own end. Nate Clay then found the ball in the middle of the field and tried to slot a pass through St. Joe's defense. The ball took a deflection and landed right on JD Kelley's foot. Kelley blasted the ball into the back of the net and the U Crew fans went nuts. Within minutes of Kelley's goal, Matt Mier played a ball across goal into the path of Nate Clay. Clay stretched for the ball and poked it onto the bottom of the crossbar and down into the goal, making it 2-0. With only a minute remaining in the half, Nate Clay again found himself in an excellent position. JD Kelley chipped a ball into the box and Clay outraced a St. Joe's defender and their goalie to touch the ball past the keeper. The score at halftime was 3-0.

In the second half, UHigh worked hard on defense to keep St. Joe's at bay. The defensive back four of Matt Mosele, Matt Mier, Ryan Poland, and Jason Lenz (seen above) had several blocked shots and big tackles. Christian Lopez made the biggest save of the game when a St. Joe's player had a close in shot that was destined for the top of the goal. Lopez stretched for a big save. With 10 minutes left, St. Joe's scored a goal but it was not enough as UHigh was victorious and won their FIRST EVER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!

SEMIFINAL WIN!
NEXT MATCH: STATE FINAL!

Oct 28th, 2016 (10:00 pm)

In a heated affair, the Pioneers faced off against the Waterloo Gibault Catholic Hawks for the IHSA State Semifinal match on Friday night. The game was back and forth in the beginning with both defenses unwilling to bend to each teams potent offenses. Several chances were missed by UHigh including a Gibault clearance off the goal line in the opening seconds of the match. UHigh outshot the Hawks 6-1 in the first half but could not open the door. In the second half, UHigh pushed the tempo earlier and had another shot cleared off the line by a Gibault defender. In the ensuing scramble for the ball, a Gibault player cleared the ball off his teammates hand 3 yards outside the box. Mason Wittman quickly grabbed the ball and placed it on the ground after the ref blew his whistle. Wittman touched a quick pass through to Cayden Redd who buried a shot into the upper corner for UHigh to take the lead.

After holding the lead until the 10 minute mark, a flashpoint happened in the match. UHigh goalkeeper Christian Lopez collided with a Gibault player and had to sub out of the game to check his injuries. Michael Napolitano checked into the game and was quickly tested. A scramble in the box found a Gibault player 1 on 1 with Napolitano. Napolitano tipped the shot onto the crossbar and over the goal, preserving the shutout. The final couple minutes were hectic and physical, with both teams exchanging blows. The Pioneers were able to hang on to the win, 1-0, and their first trip to the state final match on Saturday at 5pm!
