at Maur Hill, Kansas 6 Chillicothe 3
The Chillicothe Hornets jumped out to an early lead but
couldn't hold on, falling at Maur Hill, Kansas 6-3 in the first-ever
Hornet Boys Soccer Game. Levi Barton scored the first goal in the
9th minute off an assist by Zach Truesdell and two minutes later, Chase
Bonderer gave Chillicothe a 2-0 lead. Maur Hill scored on a penalty
kick following a miss played ball, closing the gap to 2-1. It was a
costly mistake for the Hornets, according to head coach Bill
Allison. "The Hornets let down some after that and allowed
three more Maur Hill goals in the first half."
Chillicothe closed the gap in the 2nd half after Jacob Rockhold
sent it to Zac Truesdell, who outran the
defenders to close the gap to 4-3. The Hornets were pushing for a
late goal when a pair of Hornets went down to leg cramps, allowing
two late Maur Hill scores in the final three minutes. Allison was proud
of his team in their first game. "The score does not reflect on how
close the game was and how evenly matched the two teams were."
Allison had praise for Chase Bonderer and Colton Allen at midfield,
as well as Brady Sensenich, Jeff Bowman and Weston Baker on the backline.
Freshman starter Chris Kleinschmidt played well along with Zach
Colvin and Levi Barton, according to Coach Allison. Caleb Buckmaster
made nine saves at goal. .
St Joseph Lafayette 4 at Chillicothe 2
St Joe Lafayette scored two goals in the
first seven minutes of the game and beat Chillicothe 4-2. After the
initial onslaught, Chillicothe answered with a Jacob Rockhold goal
from an assist by Levi Barton. Lafayette scored again but Rockhold
scored his 2nd goal on a feed from Chase Bonderer. In the 2nd half,
Lafayette scored again to end the game 4-2. Caleb Buckmaster at goal
had 16 saves for the game.
Chillicothe 7 at Cameron 2
September 6th might now be called "Jacob Rockhold Day" in
Chillicothe. Rockhold scored four goals and had one assist to lead the
Hornets to their first ever soccer win, beating Cameron 7-2 at
Danner Park. Cameron scored first, but Chillicothe answered with two Rockhold goals and one from Zac Truesdell to lead 3-1 at the half.
The second half started the same as the 1st with a Cameron goal from
penalty kick, but the Hornets responded with two goals again by
Rockhold, one from Chase Bonderer and one from Zach Colvin. Brady
Sensenich had two assists, Truesdell and Colton Allen with one assist
each. At the goal, Caleb Buckmaster had 6 saves for the Hornets.
Coach Bill Allison had plenty of praise for his team. "The whole
team played their hearts out to secure their first victory." Allison
pointed to the team defenders Jeff Bowman, Weston baker, Brady
Sensenich and Mahonri Reyes and the midfielders of Zach Colvin,
Chase Bonder, Colton Allen and Levi Barton. Chillicothe is now 1-2
while Cameron falls to 2-3.
Chillicothe 4 at St
Joseph Benton 1
Chillicothe jumped out to an early lead and never let up, beating St
Joseph Benton 4-1 in St Joe. The Hornets Zach Colvin scored in the
7th minute off an assist by Chase Bonderer. Jacob Rockhold took
over, scoring an unassisted goal in the 36th minute then off a
Bonderer assist 2 minutes later on a corner kick to lead 3-0 at the
half. Benton responded early in the 2nd with an unassisted goal but
Chillicothe iced the game with a Zac Truesdell unassisted goal in
the 67th minute for the Chillicothe 4-1 win.
Coach Bill Allison praised the group he calls the fab
four. "They are the Hornet's defense of Jeff Bowman, Weston Baker,
Brady Sensenich and Mahonri Reyes. These four young men are starting
to gel as a unit and have the never give up attitude." Allison also
praised midfielder Zach Colvin and Colton Allen. Goalkeeper Caleb
Buckmaster had seven saves. "Caleb definitely played his best game
of the season and is starting to mature as the Hornets Goalkeeper"
Maryville 4 at Chillicothe 3
A sluggish first half was too much for
Chillicothe to overcome as the Hornets fell to Maryville 4-3. The
Spoofhounds jumped out to a 3-0 lead, which disappointed Hornets
Coach Bill Allison. "The Hornets seemed to start the game without
the intensity that has been shown in the four previous games. Three
crucial mistakes cost the Hornets the three goals, which included a
bad pass in defense, not staying with a marked player on a corner
kick and a misguided throw by the goalkeeper."
Trailing 3-0 at the half, the Hornets responded in the
2nd half with a
Jacob Rockhold unassisted goal in the 41st minute, a Zac Truesdell
goal in the 44th minute with an assist by German Foreign Exchange
student Kevin Thomschke, and a Jacob Rockhold unassisted goal in the
68th minute, his 10th of the season, to tie the game. Maryville's
Klay Talmage found the net with less than a minute left in the game
for the Maryville 4-3 win.
Coach Allison said this was a tough loss for his team.
"This has definitely been the hardest loss to take after seeing this
new Hornet team pour their guts out onto the field and battle back
the way they did against a Maryville team that has already played 11
games and has a well established program." The Hornets fall to 2-3
on the season
at Kirksville 4 Chillicothe 1
Kirksville exploded for
three goals in the
2nd half to beat Chillicothe 4-1. The Tigers scored first which was
answered by a Jacob Rockhold goal with the assist to Kevin Thomschke.
The game was tied at 1-1 going into the second half when Kirksville
turned things up with goals by three different players.
Chillicothe's Goalkeeper Caleb Buckmaster had six saves while
Kirksville had one save on goal. Chillicothe falls to 2-4 while
Kirksville improves to 4-6.
Platte County 9 at
For the first half of the contest,
Chillicothe played right with the Platte County Pirates, trailing
just 2-1 at intermission. However, Platte County exploded for seven
goals in the 2nd half to win 9-1. Chillicothe scored first in the
game, with a Colton Allen goal in the 3rd minute off an assist by
Chase Bonderer. Coach Bill Allison says his Hornets squad will
bounce back from this disappointing loss. "This team will rebound
and gather their wits about them, even though we are struggling
through injuries that has hampered some of the players and their
effectiveness. The season is young and the Hornets are still ready
at St Joseph Lafayette 4,
They say football is a game of inches. For
Chillicothe, the same can be said about soccer. The Hornets lost to
St Joseph Lafayette 4-1 in St Joseph in a game that saw several
Hornet shots miss the goal by inches. "The Hornets were so close to
scoring several goals in the first half that definitely would of
made the outcome closer or totally different." commented Hornets
coach Bill Allison. "The Hornets had seven shots on goal by Colton
Allen, Levi Barton, Zach Colvin and four by Jacob Rockhold in the
first half and many of these just inches away from the goal as the
Irish Goalkeeper was beat." Instead, it was Lafayette that found the
goal to lead 1-0 at the half.
Lafayette's Nick Edwards gets the tough man award.
"Unlucky comes to mind in the second half as their leading scorer,
Nick Edwards, arrived from his cross country match and played with
the same talented play that he showed in the first match up between
these two teams" Edwards scored twice in the second half to
give Lafayette a 3-0 lead before Chillicothe's Zac Truesdell found
the net with an assist by Colton Allen. Lafayette scored their final
goal late in the game. At the net, Caleb Buckmaster had nine saves for
the Hornets, who fall to 2-6 overall and 1-2 in M.E.C. play.
Marshall 8 at Chillicothe 2
Chillicothe tried battling through injuries and illness but came up
short in an 8-2 loss to Marshall at Chillicothe. Jacob Rockhold
scored first, getting his 12th goal of the season off an assist by
Zac Truesdell in the 15th minute. The Owls responded with three
goals in seven minutes to lead 3-1 at the half. Marshall continued
the onslaught in the 2nd half, building a 6-1 lead before Zac
Truesdell nailed his 6th goal of the season off an assist by Jacob
Rockhold. Marshall had two more goals to round out the scoring,
"There were a number of positives that came
from this game" stated Hornets Coach Bill Allison. "Zac Truesdell
played his heart out and showed why he is a team leader. Jacob
Rockhold with his all out effort." Allison says they are playing
with a make-shift line up due to illness and injury. "Weston Baker
played his first game as a goalkeeper, Zach Colvin started in
defense, Chase Bonderer and Colton Allen battled some illnesses
to give the team several good minutes plus Mahonri Reyes had a sore
ankle." Baker had seven saves on goal, which pleased Allison. "He
showed why he wears one of the captain's bands; because of his
unselfish play and willingness to help the team out anywhere he is
needed." Chillicothe falls to 2-7 and will have five games in ten
Maur Hill Kansas 6, at Chillicothe 2
Rough plan and key mistakes were the keys to a
6-2 Chillicothe home loss to Maur Hill, Kansas. "The Hornets
definitely went to battle tonight" stated Hornets coach Bill
Allison. "The Hornets fell prey to the Raven's very hard play and
sometimes questionable play as the Hornet players were swung at,
spit at and shown a lot of disrespect with language and hand
gestures from the Raven's players." Allison says that type of play
caused the Hornets to make some mistakes they generally don't make.
Maur Hill started the scoring in the 18th minute,
but Chillicothe's Jacob Rockhold tied the game in the 27th minute
off an assist by Zac Truesdell. Maur Hill didn't let up, leading 3-1
at the half and continued the scoring into the 2nd half. Rockhold
scored Chillicothe's final goal in the 2nd half unassisted, his 14th
of the season. Caleb Buckmaster had eight saves for Chillicothe.
at Smithville 10, Chillicothe 0
The Smithville juggernaut was too much for
Chillicothe's young soccer team, falling at Smithville 10-0. The
game was stopped after 70 minutes due to the 10-goal rule. "It was
very evident that the Smithville players have a lot of soccer
experience at the club level" commented Chillicothe Coach Bill
Allison. "That definitely makes them into a good high school team.
After facing a team like Maur Hill on Tuesday that would rather beat
you up than play soccer against you, it was great to see a team that
knew how to play the game."
Smithville scored seven goals in the 1st half and three more in
the first 30 minutes of the 2nd half. "The Hornets knew going into
this game that it was going to be a tough one as Smithville's two
leading scorer's had 37 goals between them and shutting them down
would be a tough task" stated Allison. At goal, Chillicothe's Caleb
Buckmaster had 13 saves. On offense, the Hornets managed just three
shots on goal.
at Chillicothe 3, St Joseph
The Chillicothe Hornets
picked up their 2nd conference win on the season, beating St Joseph
Benton 3-2. Chillicothe's scoring came late in the game, in the 53rd
minute on a free kick by Brady Sensenich, in the 68th minute on a
Colton Whiteside kick with the assist from Zac Truesdell and in the
73rd minute by Truesdell with an assist by Jacob Rockhold.
Chillicothe is now 2-3 in the M.E.C. and 3-9 overall.
at Maryville 3 Chillicothe 0
The Chillicothe Hornets lost 3-0 at Maryville
to fall to 3-10 in their inaugural season. "We headed to
knowing that it was going to be a tough team" stated coach Bill
Allison. "Maryville is an experienced and skilled team that was
ready to play from opening whistle to ending one." The Spoofhounds
Jon Rogers had a pair of scores in the 1st half to take a 2-0 lead
at intermission. It was an active first half with Maryville having
11 shots on goal and Chillicothe five shots on goal. The second half
was more balanced with each team limited to just three shots on
goal. Maryville scored their final goal with just two minutes left
in the 2nd half.
One of the bright spots was Goalkeeper Caleb Buckmaster
who had 10 saves. "One of the referees applauded Buckmaster's play
in goal and was impressed by his efforts" commented Allison.
Chillicothe 2, at Savannah 0
The Chillicothe Hornets earned their first
shut-out of the season, beating Savannah 2-0 in St Joseph.
Chillicothe's Caleb Buckmaster earned the shut out with three saves.
Hornets Coach Bill Allison says the shut-out was a team effort. "The
heads up play by Weston Baker in the first half kept the ball out of
the net, as Buckmaster was out of position when the shot was taken,
to help secure the shut-out.".
Chillicothe scored in the 16th minute on a Zac
Truesdell unassisted goal, and on a Jacob Rockhold goal in the 63rd
minute with an assist by Truesdell. Savannah's Goalkeeper Zak Konyha
had a work out, notching 13 saves. "The Hornet's had the upper edge
on the number of shots on goal with 15 and 11 corner kicks
compared to Savannah's four shots on goal and five corner kicks"
commented Allison. Chillicothe ends the regular season at 4-10 and
conference season 3-4. They play Hannibal on the 27th at 2:00pm in
Moberly in the first round of District competition.
Chillicothe 0 Districts at Moberly
Hannibal needed a full game to edge the Chillicothe Hornets 3-0 in
the first round of District Tournament. "Throw out the score on this
one." commented Hornets coach Bill Allison. "Let us talk about the
best game of soccer that this team has played all season." Both
teams were held scoreless in the first half with both teams having
chances to score. Chillicothe's Brady Sensenich had two shots on
goal from free kicks, Colton Allen with a breakaway that was saved
by Hannibal's goalkeeper and Zac Truesdell and Jacob Rockhold with
Hannibal started finding their mark midway thru the 2nd half,
scoring in the 58th, 63rd and 74th minutes. "It was amazing to see
the looks on all these players when they came off the field at
halftime, knowing they had just played a great half of soccer
against one of the best teams in the state in Class 2" stated
Allison. The Hornets Caleb Buckmaster had 8 saves on goal, while the
Pirates Kyle Bowman had 7 saves on goal.
