Whitefish's Xander Burger is 406mtsports.com Athletes of the Month

Burger, a team captain, scored a state-record five goals in leading the Bulldogs to a 6-2 win over Polson for the Class A boys title. His scoring output alone matched the highest by any team in a state final, matching the five goals scored by Billings Central in 2009.

The five goals gave Burger 17 for his senior season, to go along with three assists. He was an all-state selection as a junior and this year led Whitefish to a boys record sixth state crown.

Billings Central girls soccer returns to the top with shootout championship win over Laurel

Billings Central defeats Laurel in championship shootout

 

BILLINGS – Tess Hansen knows a goalkeeper can put the weight of the world on her shoulders during a penalty-kick shootout. Never mind a shootout to decide a state championship.

So just before Hansen’s Billings Central Rams and the defending Class A champion Laurel Locomotives embarked on just such an occasion Saturday afternoon, Hansen, a center back, walked over to senior classmate Maggie Lyle and spoke a few words.

“No matter what, we’re not going to blame this on you,” Hansen told Lyle, the Rams' keeper.

Turned out Hansen needn’t worry because Lyle seemed the calmest player on the field when it was most crucial. Lyle made two saves in the shootout, and the Rams were successful on their first three attempts to regain the state title with the PK victory over Laurel at Wendy’s Field at Rocky Mountain College.

Lyle was Central’s regular keeper last season, but missed the title match due to injury. So the role she played in the Rams returning to the top was extra special to her.

“This is the first state championship that I’ve gotten to play in in my four years,” said Lyle, who had several key saves in regulation and overtime – as did Laurel’s Mya Hansen – to keep the score 0-0 until the shootout. “And, I mean, I don’t think it could have been any better.”

While Lyle was stopping Laurel’s PK attempts – the Locos also missed their first one – Morgan Ferestad, Zoie Althoff and Annika Varga made their shots in succession. The shootout ended after three of the five rounds because of Central’s 3-0 lead.

“I’m very, very proud of these girls, they gave it their all, even to the bitter end,” said Laurel coach Aloma Jess, whose team was trying to win its third title in the last five seasons. “If we had to lose, then this is probably the best way possible. Nobody gave up, nobody rolled over and let Central score, which I’m very, very proud of.”

Laurel went first in the shootout, and Lyle’s second save put the Rams on notice that one more goal and the championship was theirs. When Varga slipped her shot into the right corner ahead of a diving Hansen, the rest of the Rams ran from midfield to mob Varga and Lyle in the 18-yard box.

The Rams are state champs for the third time in the last four years and they've won nine of the last 11 titles. It was the last match for Rams coach Didier Ndedi, who announced earlier this season that he’s moving to the East coast after spending the last four seasons with the Central girls and the last six with the boys’ program.

“This has been amazing, I can’t explain it,” said Ndedi, who said he and his family are leaving Billings on Wednesday. “There’s really no words for this type of situation. This game I’m going to take with me. This is even better than all the rest I’ve ever had.

“They played wonderful. They played like they never played before. They wanted it so bad that they played amazing football. For us to win it in the PK, we can take it.”

Despite the 0-0 score at the end of overtime, there was plenty of up-and-down action, enough so that many of the players seemed gassed at the end. Center backs usually don’t tire, but Hansen admitted that even she had to put in some extra work in a game where both back lines were stressed.

“I think it’s amazing that both teams came out to fight as hard as they could,” she said. “I’ve never been a part of a game where’s it gone back and forth, back and forth like that. I think that makes this win that much more sweet, even though it went to PKs, because we fought for it.”

Whitefish Wins State Soccer Championship

 

 

Behind Xander Burger’s historic five-goal effort, Bulldogs fend off Polson, win state-record sixth boys soccer title on home field

Minutes after the final match of his high school career came to an end, Xander Burger was lifted off the ground and tossed into the air, bounced playfully by a swarm of jubilant teammates and coaches.

It was the least they could do for the senior forward.

Burger scored an unprecedented five goals, including the eventual match-winner early in the second half, and the Whitefish Bulldogs won the Class A state boys soccer championship with a 6-2 victory over conference rival Polson in front of a large contingent of fans from both schools at Smith Fields Saturday afternoon.

“Never mind that it was his last game or it was the state championship,” Whitefish Head Coach John Lacey said after the match. “Five goals, that’s a special game if it’s the second one of the season.”

“I’m so proud of him,” Lacey continued. “He’s been an outstanding player for our program and in this state forever and today he really showed a lot of people. I’m glad he had this stage.”

Burger scored in the 27th, 30th, 41st, 71st and 76th minutes, and scored as many goals in a state championship match as any team has in the 28-year-history of Montana high school soccer. Only one team — Billings Central in 2009 — had scored five goals in a title match before Saturday.

Burger earned all-state honors as a junior and will likely receive the same again this year after finishing his senior season with 17 goals and three assists. The Bulldogs lost 4-0 to Belgrade in last year’s state title tilt, a game Burger missed after suffering a fluke head injury in practice the day before the match.

“I don’t know, I guess I was just saving up the goals,” Burger said with a smirk after Saturday’s win.

Whitefish (14-0-1) controlled play in the opening minutes, generating a handful of early chances before Burger took a feed from Ian Lacey and put the Bulldogs on the board from inside the box in the 27th minute. Three minutes later, Casey Schneider streaked down the sideline deep into the Pirates zone and delivered a nifty pass perfectly to Burger’s feet, and the senior striker calmly one-touched the feed inside the near post to make it 2-0.

Polson (13-2-1) would not go away quietly, however. The Pirates found their legs midway through the first half and started generating chances of their own, denting the scoreboard in the 33rd minute when Nico River beat the keeper from around 15 yards out.

In the second half, it didn’t take long for Burger and the Bulldogs to get started again. Just one minute into the period, Burger raced a defender to the front of the goal and deftly snuck his foot into position to poke the ball past the keeper and make it 3-1, but again that lead would not last long. Robin Erickson scored just three minutes later, and the Pirates nearly found the equalizer in the 50th minute when Mack Moderie weaved through the Bulldogs midfield but could not get the ball past the last line of defense.

In the 58th minute, Whitefish’s Joshua Gunderson was set up in the box on a Bulldogs attack but fired wide. Moments after the errant touch, however, Gunderson was tackled hard by a Polson defender and Whitefish was awarded a penalty kick, one Lacey converted to put the match out of reach.

“A little hard-done by the penalty,” Polson coach Adam Fansher said. “I think that was kind of the turning point there, when it was 3-2 we were pushing hard but credit to Whitefish, they got the goals.”

The championship capped an undefeated season for Whitefish and gave the Bulldogs their sixth title in program history, more than any other school in the state. Whitefish and Polson were matched up in the state final for the third time, and for the third time the Pirates fell short of claiming their first championship.

Polson put together an otherwise outstanding season in their own right, losing twice to Whitefish and tying the Bulldogs once but otherwise winning every one of their matches. Moderie finished his senior year as the state’s leading scorer (27 goals, eight assists) and classmate Erickson (15 goals, eight assists) was right behind him.

“These were some of my freshmen when I first took over as the high school coach,” Fansher, who assumed the head job in 2015, said. “We would have liked a different ending to their story but I think, in terms of wins and being one of the best programs in the state over these last four years, I think we established ourselves and I’m really proud of that.”

Whitefish, meanwhile, started only one senior (Burger) on Saturday and picked up key contributions in the title match from sophomores James Thompson and Brandon Mendoza, and juniors Schneider, Lacey and Sam Menicke, all of whom will return next year, likely with the expectation that the season ends the same way this one did.

The only question will be who gets tossed in the air after the final whistle.

2018 'A' STATE SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEWS

October 25, 2018

 

Boys Class A State Championship Match

The Whitefish Bulldogs are the most storied program in Montana soccer’s 27-year history. Entering the season, Whitefish had played in more championship matches (10) and won more titles (five) than any school in the state, and Saturday will mark the second year in a row the Bulldogs will compete for the crown. Expectations entering the year were enormous in and around the program, and to this point the season has been no disappointment. Whitefish (13-0-1) is the highest scoring side in the state (5.0 goals per match), has allowed a total of nine goals the entire year and has earned the right to host all three of their postseason matches.

Polson, meanwhile, has been nipping at the Bulldogs’ heels throughout 2018 and, frankly, a few years longer than that. The Pirates (13-1-1) have reached the Class A state championship match just twice in their history, losing in both 2002 and 2011 to, you guessed it, Whitefish.

“If there’s any team we know really well, it’s Whitefish,” Polson Head Coach Adam Fansher said. “Even in the club season these guys play against each other … I don’t know if there are going to be too many surprises.”

Fansher and his Whitefish counterpart, John Lacey, were both hired prior to the 2015 season and both are chasing their first titles as head coaches, although Lacey was an assistant with that 2002 Whitefish team that knocked off Polson. This year, the teams met twice in the regular season with very different results.

Both sides came into their first matchup, Sept. 22 in Whitefish, with unbeaten records, but the Bulldogs ran away with that one, routing the Pirates 5-0. Two weeks later, Oct. 4 in Polson, they played to a 3-3 draw, the only blemish on Whitefish’s season to this point.

“We’re a different team from that 5-0 game in Whitefish,” Fansher said. “Frankly, I’m glad that happened, because it showed us how much improvement we needed to make. I don’t think we beat Belgrade (in the state semifinals) if that hadn’t happened.”

Last weekend’s semifinals were a redux of the 2017 season, except Polson avenged its 2-0 loss a year ago with a 1-0 victory in Belgrade. For Whitefish, meanwhile, a 1-0 home win against Frenchtown felt a whole lot different than last year’s 3-1 triumph on the road.

“I’m looking forward to turning the page,” Lacey said. “Because the best part about (last) Saturday is that we got out of it.”

The Bulldogs were pressured from the start by an aggressive Broncs team, and needed some timely saves by keeper Colter Upton and a perfectly placed second-half strike from leading scorer Casey Schneider to escape. The win moved Whitefish into the match it’s been focused on all year, a chance to wipe away last year’s 4-0 loss to Belgrade in a title tilt that saw the Bulldogs start seven freshmen and sophomores.

That returning experience would figure to give Whitefish a bit of an edge, but the Bulldogs still boast a relatively youthful roster with just three seniors. Polson, meanwhile, is led by a pair of spectacular seniors in Mack Moderie, the leading scorer in Class A with 27 goals and eight assists, and Robin Erickson (15 goals, eight assists) who can go goal-for-goal with Whitefish’s high-scoring trio of senior Xander Burger (12 goals, three assists), and juniors Sam Menicke (10 goals, three assists) and Schneider (17 goals, 11 assists).

The two coaches do not expect many surprises from the other side in the title match, which is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

“We know them and they know us, and it’s going to take each team’s best effort to beat the other,” Lacey said. “We’ve played them a lot over the last few years, and I think it helps to know some of their tendencies. And it helps, in this case, to know that if we don’t play well they can exploit us.”

Regardless of the outcome Saturday, the Northern A conference will be taking home another state title, something the league has done an astonishing 10 times in just 17 years of Class A soccer. This year’s match will also be the sixth time two Northern A schools have faced each other with a state championship on the line.

“The best part about it is it’s a testament to soccer up here in the north,” Lacey said. “I’m excited that somebody from our conference is going to win; I hope it’s going to be us.”

The Daily Inter Lake

WHITEFISH — Whitefish coach John Lacey asks a lot of forward Casey Schneider, the Bulldogs’ lone striker up top.

On Saturday, Lacey’s trust in Schneider paid off.

The junior forward scored a sensational deciding goal as Whitefish (14-0-1) survived Frenchtown 1-0 in the Class A playoff semifinal at Smith Fields.

In the 58th minute, Schneider outran and outmuscled two defenders after receiving a long ball from goalkeeper Colter Upton. He gave himself space in front of the goal and fired a laser strike toward the far post, off the desperate goalkeeper’s fingertips and into the net.

“His shot was fantastic. No blame at all to the keeper on that one. That was just a great shot,” Lacey said.

“His [Schneider’s] work rate on the day was very high. We rely on that energy.”

The goal came after both teams had multiple chances to break the deadlock early in the second half.

In the 42nd minute, the officials awarded the Bulldogs a penalty kick when sophomore Brandon Mendoza was fouled in the box going for a header. But Frenchtown keeper Dawson Leishman made an excellent save on Sam Menicke’s powerful penalty shot.

On the other end, the Broncs (11-4-0) couldn’t capitalize on numerous opportunities. In the 52nd minute, Frenchtown’s Jeff Jacobs — a menace on the wing throughout the match — lobbed a perfect cross to Caleb Stanicar at the far post. But Stanicar failed to get a solid touch on the ball, poking it wide.

A few minutes later, Stanicar’s cross from the goal line grazed the near post and caught the Bulldogs off guard, nearly deflecting off goalkeeper Colter Upton and into the net.

But it was Schneider that finally broke the tie.

“Sometimes playoffs are about just getting a result. And that’s what today was. We just gutted out a result,” Lacey said.

“Frenchtown definitely played well ... They had plenty of chances in the box, and didn’t finish it. It could have been more than 1-0 easy, could have been multiple goals for each side. But the one that counted we were lucky enough to get.”

The Broncs pushed everyone up in the final 10 minutes and came agonizingly close to a tying goal. But multiple open shots rolled right to Upton or ricocheted off Whitefish defenders packing the space in front of goal.

Upton saved a strong shot by Jacobs in the 75th minute white protecting the near post. It was one of a few excellent blocks — in the 26th minute, Upton made a diving save to stop Stanicar’s blast from outside the box.

“There were long periods when he was not asked to do much, but he stepped up when he could,” Lacey said.

“Any time it’s a clean sheet, that’s a credit to the keeper.”

A year after falling 4-0 to Belgrade in the Class A championship, the Bulldogs get another shot, hosting Polson in next week’s all-Northern A title clash.

The teams met twice in the regular season. On Sept. 22, the Bulldogs took control of the conference by crushing the Pirates 5-0. But the Oct. 4 match in Polson was a thrilling 3-3 draw.

“I’m excited because I think there will be a lot of people out here, especially if we can get another great, beautiful day like this,” Lacey said.

He is glad the Class A champion will be a Northern A team.

“We play some good soccer up here,” Lacey said.

Polson 1, Belgrade 0

BELGRADE – Robin Erickson’s late goal propelled Polson to a win over Belgrade in a Class A playoff semifinal.

Polson (14-1-1) avenged last season’s semifinal loss to the Panthers (9-3-3), while ending Belgrade’s quest for a third straight state title and sixth consecutive title appearance.

Belgrade was on the attack from the opening whistle. But the Pirates’ defense stifled goal-scoring chances with several last-second tackles, and goalkeeper Kaden Nelson made some critical saves.

Polson coach Adam Fansher was proud of his defense for eliminating mistakes that plagued the team in recent weeks.

“They shut out a really good Belgrade team,” he said.

Belgrade had 15 shots on goal to Polson’s eight.

Polson recovered after a slow offensive start and tightened up the match. Fansher called the second half a “back-and-forth” battle with “both teams trading punches.”

The Pirates found a game-winner in the 62nd minute. Senior Mack Moderie had the ball and drew Panthers defenders toward him, giving Erickson space in front of goal. Erickson received the ball and finished with a low, hard shot into the net.

“Nothing fluky about it, just a good quality goal,” Fansher said.

The Panthers almost managed to send the game into overtime, but knocked a penalty kick wide in the 78th minute.

Next Saturday, Polson will visit Whitefish for a state championship battle between Northern A heavyweights.

“It’s gonna be a great showcase for soccer in Northwest Montana,” Fansher said.

“I feel like we’ve been the two best teams all year.”

BILLINGS – The Rams’ offense was too much for Whitefish (9-7-0) in a Class A playoff semifinal.

Central (13-1-1) entered halftime with a 1-0 lead. Then Morgan Ferestad — the leading scorer in Class A — scored twice in the second half to put the game out of reach for the Bulldogs.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Rams will face Laurel in the Class A state championship game. The two teams have combined to win the last 10 state titles.

Polson tops Belgrade boys in State A semifinals

 

BEGLRADE — The Polson Pirates boys soccer team is heading to the Class A state championship match after beating Belgrade 1-0 on Saturday.

This was a rematch of the 2017 semifinals when Belgrade beat Polson for a spot in the title game..

Saturday’s game was scoreless until the 62nd minute when Polson’s Robin Erickson found the back of the goal to put the Pirates up.

Both teams had shots on goal the entire game, but it was Polson advancing to the Class A state championship against Whitefish.

Billings Central girls soccer reaches 4th consecutive state title match

 

BILLINGS – Zoie Althoff can’t explain how she knows, or how she sees what she sees, but when the soccer ball needs to be put somewhere right now – even if a teammate isn’t there yet – she puts it there.

Althoff’s prescience was on display again Saturday, as she assisted on goals from Morgan Ferestad and Solei Elletson to help Billings Central defeat Whitefish 3-0 in a Class A girls soccer semifinal Saturday at Wendy’s Field at Rocky Mountain College.

The Rams (12-1-1) reached the state championship match for the fourth season in a row, all against Laurel (12-1-1). The Rams will host the defending champion Locomotives, a 1-0 winner over Belgrade, next Saturday at 11 a.m., also at Wendy’s Field.

Laurel and Central have combined to win the last 10 state titles.

“It’s an awesome feeling, we’ll definitely have to work for it,” Althoff, a junior, said before knowing the outcome of the day’s other semifinal. “It’s fulfilling making it every year. It’s nice.”

Ferestad scored twice, and improved her Class A single-season goal tally to numbers 37 and 38. She, like Elletson, was aided by Althoff, who, from her position as an attacking midfielder, unlocked the Whitefish defense.

Elletson got the Rams on the board first when she sent an Althoff pass into the net in the 32nd minute. A minute into the second half, Althoff put a shot on goal that forced Whitefish keeper Sam Galbreath into a diving save. Galbreath couldn’t control the rebound, however, and Ferestad was there to pounce and send the ball home.

Central’s third goal came when Althoff put the ball directly at the feet of Ferestad. Ferestad, with her back to the goal and pinning her defender, made one touch, spun, and quickly put the ball past Galbreath from inside the 18-yard box.

The duo made it look as easy as 1-2-3.

“We’ve been playing together since we were really young,” said Ferestad, who, as only a junior, has 98 career goals, just three shy of tying Whitefish’s Elizabeth Pittman (1998-01) for the all-class state record. “So, we always look for each other and we have a tendency to know where each other is.”

Last season, Althoff played more up top in the Rams’ formation, and scored 29 goals as a result. Playing more on the wings now, she has nine goals this season, but her two assists put her at 13 for the year.

Althoff likes being the engine.

“I like to run,” she joked, and she certainly does more of that on the wing. “And getting the through balls and making assists is fun for me.”

How does she see the field so well?

“Ummm … I don’t know how to explain it,” she said.

Whitefish coach Roland Benedict had a ready explanation for how his team’s season ended. The Bulldogs (9-6-0) had good possession time, he noted, they just lacked the finishing capabilities that the Rams possess, though Central keeper Maggie Lyle was forced into a leaping save just moments after her team scored its second goal.

“When you play a team with Morgan Ferestad and Zoie Althoff and Elletson, they’re goal-scorers,” Benedict said. “As good as you want to defend, you have to score goals to win and you have to create chances to win.

“And I don’t think we put Billings under enough pressure to make it hard for them, to ask questions of their back line and their keeper, which alleviates the pressure on our back line defending against them. Honestly, I think that was the one difference.”

Maeson Cotter direct kick sends Laurel to state championship match against Billings Central

 

LAUREL – Maeson Cotter connected on a direct kick from about 20 yards out with a minute to play, giving the Laurel Locomotives another dramatic playoff win and a chance to defend their Class A soccer championship with a 1-0 semifinal victory over Belgrade Saturday at the Laurel Sports Complex.

Laurel reached the championship match for the fifth consecutive season, and the Locomotives will play Billings Central for the fourth straight year. The title match is scheduled for next Saturday at 11 a.m. at Wendy’s Field at Rocky Mountain College.

“Here we go again,” Laurel coach Aloma Jess said.

Laurel appeared headed for overtime for the second weekend in a row when Belgrade keeper Abbey Cady stymied Aspen Cotter on a penalty kick late in the match. A few minutes later, however, Maeson Cotter got her chance when Belgrade was whistled for a foul, and she sent the ball over the Panthers’ wall and into the net in the 79th minute.

“She punched that in and it was really a sigh of relief,” Jess said. “And then it was quickly get back, get organized on defense, and make sure Belgrade doesn’t score on us because they’re very good at that.”

The tying goal never materialized, however, and the Panthers ended their final season in Class A at 9-3-2. Billings Central, Laurel and Belgrade, Eastern A teams all, comprised three of the four semifinal berths this season.

“I’ve been worried about Belgrade the last three or four years and they’re very strong,” Jess said. “I know that they’ll do well moving on to AA, but they’ve been scaring me for a while now. The Eastern A is just super strong.”

It hasn’t been the smoothest playoff run for the Locos, and Jess has called her team the “Comeback Kids,” because of it. Laurel went into overtime in last week’s quarterfinals before emerging with a 2-1 win over Columbia Falls. Then came Saturday, when Laurel won late again.

“I’m actually very thankful that we drew a challenging playoff schedule because that keeps us on our toes,” Jess said. “We’re playing at a level of soccer that helps develops us and improves us.”

Billings Central and Laurel have played twice this season. The Rams won 2-0 on Sept. 20, and Laurel won the return match on Oct. 4, also 2-0. Both teams are 12-1-1

Late goal lifts Locos past Belgrade in semis

Cotter blasts in free kick with less than a minute remaining in 1-0 victory

 

Diving Save

Belgrade's Abbey Cady dives to make a save against Laurel during the second half of the match on Saturday.

Celine Valentin didn’t mince words. She thought it was a bad call that cost Belgrade the match.

After battling defending state champion Laurel to a scoreless draw through 79 minutes Saturday afternoon, the Panthers were whistled for a hand ball just outside of the box with overtime looming.

The Locomotives (12-1-1) scored on the ensuing free kick by Maeson Cotter with just 30 seconds remaining to escape with a 1-0 State A semifinal victory.

Consolation

Belgrade's Mariah Morgan (10) and Shaina Smith (8) comfort each other after losing to Laurel on Saturday.

“It was a really frustrating call to make with 30 seconds left in the game. Just an unintentional hand ball,” Belgrade’s coach said. “The girl who took it just kind of struck it hard right at the net and it went in.”

Belgrade (9-3-2) appeared to have the momentum heading into overtime after senior keeper Abbey Cady made a huge save on a penalty kick.

“Right after the PK the whole team was real fired up because that was a real questionable call as well to have the PK,” said Valentin. “So she made a stop, everybody was really fired up, and we had a ton of momentum.”

Needless to say, it was a devastating loss for the Panthers, who were also beaten by the Locomotives two years ago in the semifinals.

“At the end they were super pissed off because this obviously is a really talented team. I think we could have had the game, especially if it was going to go into overtime,” said Valentin. “But we talked about if you’ve done everything you’re capable of doing, and you prepared as well as you could prepare, you can walk off the field knowing that you gave it your all.

“They played super hard and they left it all out there. It didn’t go there way and sometimes the better team doesn’t win.”

Class A soccer

playoffs

Semifinals

Saturday

Boys

Frenchtown (11-2-0) at Whitefish (12-0-1), 2 p.m.: One of two heavyweight battles in the semifinals. These two sides have allowed the fewest goals in Class A, with Whitefish giving up just nine goals and Frenchtown 12 (Belgrade has given up 13). All 12 goals allowed by Frenchtown came on the road.

Polson (12-1-1) at Belgrade (9-1-3), noon: Polson is the only non-division winner in the field, but that doesn’t make the Pirates a pushover. They’ve scored the second-most goals in the state (65) behind top goal scorer Mack Moderi. Belgrade, the two-time defending Class A champion, is trying to reach the title match for the fifth straight season — and has six shutouts this year.

Girls

Belgrade (9-2-2) at Laurel (11-1-1), 1 p.m.: Belgrade’s Mariah Morgan scored three goals last week to break the school’s single-season school record. She has 21. These Eastern A rivals tied 3-3 on Sept. 15 before Laurel won the return match 3-1 two weeks later. Defending champion Laurel used an overtime goal from Morgan Maack to advance out of the quarterfinals.

Whitefish (9-5-0) at Billings Central (11-1-1), noon: Whitefish’s balance means teams can’t mark on any particular player, but the concern when playing Billings Central is keeping the Rams out of the net. Even in less-than-ideal conditions (snow), the Rams scored five goals in a quarterfinal win over Corvallis.

Belgrade blanks Broncs in State ‘A’ quarterfinals

 
Acrobatic Shot

Belgrade’s Kanon Tebo tries to score on an acrobatic shot after leaping into the air Saturday afternoon against Hamilton.

 

Veteran keeper Luke Turner caught the attention of Kanon Tebo with a quick holler of his name and then booted the ball nearly the entire distant of the pitch.

Tebo sprinted under it following a high bounce with a pair of defensemen in tow, gathered in the ball, and then scored on his ensuing shot.

It was the last of four goals Belgrade scored Saturday afternoon on a snow drenched field at the Belgrade Youth Sports Complex, and sealed a 4-0 state Class A quarterfinal victory against Hamilton.

“Not a lot of teams are ready for the big ball, especially when you get the back spin on it and it’s pretty straight and accurate,” Turner, who picked up his third assist of the season while also posting his state record 16th shutout in goal, said. “Get a lucky bounce, and it goes the right way, you get a goal.”

The two-time defending state champions advanced to the semifinals for a sixth straight season and will host Polson (12-1-1), a 7-3 winner against Missoula Loyola, next Saturday.

“Six years, yeah, we’re pretty happy about that,” longtime Belgrade coach Ric Plante said. “I don’t know who we have. I’m guessing it will be Polson. We played them in the semi here last year and they’re going to be really, really tough.”

Tebo scored twice in the victory, including a goal less with less than four off the clock. EJ Dewell sent a cross into the box in front of the right post and keeper Daniel Schlender was unable handle the save. Once it squirted loose, Tebo scored easily.

“You ask any coach and say, ‘Will you take a goal the first three minutes? You bet,’” said Plante. “Obviously the conditions were horrible. Their keeper mishandled it a little bit and we were able to poke it in.”

Belgrade (9-1-3) added goals in the 25th and 28th minutes by Nicolas Buendia and Tyler Monlux to stretch the lead to 3-0. But it was the Broncs who were controlling the match early on.

“A lot of credit to Hamilton. I thought they played really well,” said Plante. “First 15, 20 minutes they controlled the possession, but when we got the second goal things started to turn our way.”

The Panthers also clamped down defensively, limiting Hamilton to just eight shots en route to posting their sixth shutout of the season.

“Nathan’s (Haycock) doing a great job at the holding midfield position. You take those four guys, and Nathan and Luke, that’s six solid guys back there that we feel really confident about,” said Plante. “They had a few chances, but I don’t think they had anything that was real dangerous.”

While Belgrade has reached the past four championship matches, players know they’ll face a stiff challenge in the semifinals against the Pirates.

“I think we’re going to have Polson coming in and we took them out in the semifinal last year, so they’re going to be coming in with some heat,” said Turner. “But if we want to get back to the final we have to take it one game at a time.”

BHS, Morgan top Missoula Loyola

It wasn’t until after the match that Mariah Morgan was informed of the accomplishment Saturday afternoon.

The Belgrade senior not only scored a hat trick in a 5-1 state Class A quarterfinal victory against Missoula Loyola, but she broke the program record for goals in a season as well.

Morgan scored goals in the 15th, 51st and 67th minutes, and her second goal broke the record of 19 set by Shelby Erdahl in 2011. She now has 21 and counting as the Panthers advance to the semifinal round of the playoffs.

“I didn’t know about it, but I just figured that if I try my best and then maybe I could get something like that,” said Morgan. “I know my freshman year I had some record happen for freshmen goals, so it was really exciting to hear about that.”

Belgrade (9-2-2) will travel to defending state champion Laurel next Saturday. The Locomotives (11-1-1) rallied to beat Columbia Falls, 2-1, in overtime Saturday.

Hayden Cade scored a pair of goals for the Panthers in the victory, while Sarah Marshall assisted on all three of the team’s second half scores.

But fourth-year coach Celine Valentin noted it took a while for her team to settle into the contest.

“We actually didn’t have a great first half. I think we were lucky to escape with a 2-1 lead going into halftime,” she said. “What the scoreline didn’t show is that Liz (Gilbertson) had two goalline clearances in the first half. The ball was literally there on the line and she was there at the last second, which definitely saved us.”

On the first clearance, a Missoula Loyola striker beat a pair of defenders and then got off a soft shot past keeper Abbey Cady. Gilbertson cleared it off the line to maintain Belgrade’s 1-0 lead.

“Usually if it gets tied or we get down that changes the morale of the game,” said Gilbertson. “But because of it it really pumped everyone up and we kept playing our game.”

On the second clearance, Cady tipped the ball up in the air on a cross by the near post and then Gilbertson headed it out of danger.

“Then we got it up and we got it to our forward,” Gilbertson explained. “We held it and then we kept them on their half for a while after that.”

At halftime, Valentin instructed her team to posses the ball, find feet and make good decisions.

“Once we got into that rhythm they couldn’t catch us,” she said.

Billings Central girls weather conditions, Corvallis for quarterfinal soccer win

Billings Central defeats Corvallis, 5-0; heads to semifinals

Billings Central's Sophia Bohl (4) and Corvallis' Frances Carrasco (7) fight for the ball in the first half of the playoff game at Wendy's Field at Rocky Mountain College on Saturday. Billings Central defeated Corvallis, 5-0, to advance to the semifinals.

BILLINGS -- Solei Elletson scored three goals to help Billings Central defeat Corvallis 5-0 in the quarterfinals of the Class A girls soccer playoffs at Wendy's Field at Rocky Mountain College on Saturday.

Morgan Ferestad also found the net for the Rams (11-1-1), who won for the first time in their last three matches. A Corvallis own goal accounted for Central's fifth goal.

Early-morning snowfall covered the field and forced about a 45-minute delay until Central school officials, parents and other volunteers could shovel the snow off the field. The contingent began removing the snow about 11 a.m., and were still at it more than two hours later. Snow continued to fall throughout much of the match but the field stayed in playable condition.

The Rams will host a semifinal game next Saturday against Whitefish. Corvallis ended its season at (3-9-1)

Whitefish boys roll into semis

The Daily Inter Lake

WHITEFISH — For 30 minutes, it looked far from certain that the undefeated Bulldogs would advance in the Class A soccer playoffs.

But Sam Menicke changed the game with one powerful strike, helping send Whitefish to a 4-0 victory over Livingston in the quarterfinals on Saturday at Smith Fields.

In the 30th minute, senior Xander Burger’s crafty footwork gave him space in the right corner to send a cross into the penalty box. The ball ricocheted off a defender to the feet of Menicke, who slammed a shot into the left side of the goal, well out of the reach of Livingston goalkeeper Brandon Smith.

“They were defending well and they started the game with more energy than us. It took us a little bit to get that playoff energy going,” Whitefish coach John Lacey said.

“When we eventually found that goal, I think the team really got a boost.”

Whitefish scored again in the 37th minute to take a 2-0 lead into halftime. Menicke sent a perfect long ball to senior forward Ammann Koch-Ford, who outran the Rangers defense and poked a first-touch shot into the goal.

The second half was all Whitefish.

The Bulldogs calmly maintained possession and created numerous chances, while stifling the Rangers experienced attack.

In the 64th minute, sophomore James Thompson put the game out of reach. Thompson attempted a cross from the goal line that evaded the defense and snuck in front of the near post before finding the back of the net.

The Bulldogs padded their lead two minutes later. Burger won the ball on the right wing and was knocked over by a defender, but Burger quickly jumped to his feet, reclaimed the ball and played a perfect cross that junior Ian Lacey pounded into the net on one touch.

“He [Xander] had a very strong game. We look to Xander to really give us that dynamic energy that really pushes us through,” coach Lacey said. He also pointed out the work rate of junior Casey Schneider from the forward position.

Lacey held Menicke out in the second half after Menicke picked up a yellow card, but Thompson and sophomore Niath Edland held strong in the central midfield. Working with the Bulldogs’ back line, they kept Livingston from threatening the goal in the second half.

“They’re a bigger, stronger team. I think we held our own,” Lacey said.

“We don’t want to go and bang against guys; we want to be able to move the ball and keep it.”

The Bulldogs will host a semifinal battle on Saturday against Southern A champions Frenchtown, a 2-0 quarterfinal winner over Laurel.

Whitefish 2, Hamilton 1 OT

WHITEFISH — The Bulldogs came from behind to take down Hamilton in extra time in the Class A quarterfinal play at Smith Fields.

Anxiety spread throughout the home crowd after the Broncs took a 1-0 lead in the 55th minute. Hamilton’s Rylee Wiediger buried a penalty kick, following a controversial foul called on Whitefish goalkeeper Sami Galbraith.

But the Bulldogs — refusing to panic — pressed forward and created numerous chances, finally breaking through in the 65th minute. Junior Anna Cook dribbled through the Broncs defense and found the space to hit a strike that leveled the match.

Whitefish coach Roland Benedict said his team’s response to the second-half deficit was “a true testament to a team that can have a run in the playoffs.”

“All year we’ve had the majority of the ball, but can you go down 1-0 at home, dominating play, and respond? And I think that’s what we did,” he said.

Junior Olivia Potthoff nearly had the game-winner in the 76th minute, but Hamilton goalkeeper Maddy Martin made a tremendous save on a shot from a few yards out.

Whitefish dominated both periods of overtime. Though Hamilton escaped the first 10-minute period unscathed, the Bulldogs scored less than a minute into the second period.

After receiving a pass from Anna Akey, Potthoff hit a high shot from the left side of the box. It went off the keeper’s fingertips, over her head and landed softly in the goal.

Whitefish shut down Hamilton’s attack, led by the duo of Wiediger (19 goals on the season) and Class-A assist leader Olivia Zepeda (18 assists).

Benedict said his team’s defense took Zepeda out of the game, making it harder on a goal-scoring threat like Wiediger.

“You shut down the supply line, and they can’t hurt you,” Benedict said.

“It shows how good we are. We didn’t put a man-marking thing on her [Zepeda]. We just played and knew where she was and knew that’s their threat.”

Whitefish will need to convert more of its chances to defeat a team like its semifinal opponent, Billings Central. The Bulldogs managed 32 attempts on goal on Saturday.

“We’ve got to be a better finishing team if we want to keep advancing. We’re going to score chances, but when you start getting teams where you only get 10 chances, you need to have a better return rate,” Benedict said.

“But you’ve always got to be able to dig out a win, anything you can do to get the result. And we did that [today].”

Whitefish plays at Billings Central on Saturday. Billings Central crushed Corvallis 5-0 in quarterfinal play.

Quarterfinals

Saturday

Livingston (7-2-3) at Whitefish (11-0-1), 11 a.m.: Whitefish is the only team to allow fewer than 10 goals (9) on its way to being the lone team without a loss. Livingston ended the regular season with a loss to Laurel.

Laurel (4-7-1) at Frenchtown (10-2-0), 2 p.m.: Laurel and Frenchtown opened the season with the Broncs coming away with a 1-0 win. Now, one team will end the other’s season.

Hamilton (6-5-1) at Belgrade (8-1-3), noon: Two-time champion Belgrade begins its final postseason in Class A before moving up to AA next season. Hamilton will look to contain Kanon Tebo, whose 22 goals is second-best in the state.

Missoula Loyola (5-6-1) at Polson (11-1-1), 2 p.m.: Polson needed a shootout win to overcome Columbia Falls in Tuesday’s play-in match. The Pirates won an earlier match-up this season 6-1 over Loyola.

Girls

Saturday

Laurel (10-1-1) at Columbia Falls (9-3-0), 1 p.m.: Defending champion Laurel lost out to Billings Central on goal differential for the top seed in the East, and gained a tough draw as a result. The Wildkats’ Josie Windauer has 28 goals, second-most in the state.

Belgrade (8-2-2) at Missoula Loyola (8-3-1), 11 a.m.: Belgrade is coming off a 3-3 draw with Eastern A champ Billings Central. Freshman Lani Walker has scored 27 of Loyola’s 50 goals.

Corvallis (3-8-1) at Billings Central (10-1-1), 1 p.m.: Led by Morgan Ferestad (a Class A single-season record 34 goals), the Rams have scored 84 goals as a team and given up a state-fewest 10. Corvallis has 19 goals on the season.

Hamilton (10-2-0) at Whitefish (8-5-0), 1 p.m.: For these teams, their hopeful road to the state title match begins with a look back at history. These two programs won the first two titles in Class A history: Whitefish in 2001 and Hamilton in 2002.

C-Falls, Polson, Whitefish home for soccer playoffs

Last season, the Whitefish boys twice came tantalizingly close to a soccer title, finishing second in Northern A and falling in the state championship match.

But for the 2018 Bulldogs team, it’s about this season and this season alone.

“We’ve been spending the whole season looking forward, not at where things didn’t go our way last year,” Whitefish coach John Lacey said.

The focus is paying off, as the Bulldogs (11-0-1 overall, 7-0-1 Northern A) enter today’s quarterfinal playoff match today at 11 a.m. at Smith Fields versus Livingston (7-2-3, 2-1-3 Eastern A) as the only undefeated team in Class A. Whitefish is also Class A’s highest-scoring team, with 65 goals.

A few of last season’s standout players lead the Bulldogs’ well-balanced attack. Senior Casey Schneider is third in the state in goals and assists, with 17 and 11, respectively. Senior Xander Burger has 12 goals and junior Sam Menicke 10.

But the Bulldogs’ defense could be the difference-maker in its hunt for a championship. The team allowed just nine goals this season, the fewest in Class A. One of its numerous shutouts included a 4-0 victory over Livingston on Sept. 1.

But the Rangers were competitive against tough opponents late in the season.

“Livingston is a senior-heavy team,” Lacey said.

“They have a strong physical aspect to their game and we have to match their physicality.”

Lacey said the Bulldogs need to emphasize possession of the ball and patience on offense – in other words, just continue what they have done all season long.

“We’re excited to be here and looking forward to continuing the same kind of play.” he said.

 

Polson

The Pirates nearly shipwrecked their promising season on Tuesday in a play-in game against Columbia Falls.

But Polson (11-1-1, 6-1-1) salvaged a goal in the dying minutes to force overtime, then won 6-5 in the ensuing penalty shootout.

“We felt fortunate to escape against Columbia Falls,” Polson coach Adam Fansher said. “It was a good lesson for us ... you can’t take anything for granted.”

Still, seeing his team “stay calm” and find a way to respond leaves Fansher confident going into today’s quarterfinal playoff test against Missoula Loyola (5-6-1, 4-4 Southern A).

It helps to have a player of Mack Moderie’s caliber on the team. The senior led Class A with 27 goals in the regular season — well over two goals per game — and had eight assists.

“What Moderie’s done is pretty impressive, I’ve never seen a better high school player in five years of coaching here,” Fansher said.

Senior Robin Erickson joins Moderie in the Pirates’ impressive attack. Erickson led all of Class A in assists with 16, while adding 15 goals of his own.

Polson already faced Loyola, defeating the Rams 6-1 on Sept. 1. Loyola struggled to put the ball in net this season, scoring just 20 goals, but its solid defense (28 goals allowed) helped guide it to a second-place finish in a competitive Southern A.

“We beat Columbia Falls 6-0 early in the season,” Fansher said, “so you throw those early results out the window. Everyone steps up their game in the playoffs.”

Fansher said the Pirates are plenty prepared for the occasion, but to win they need to “eliminate mistakes.”

“A couple of mistakes almost cost us against Columbia Falls,” Fansher said.

Girls

Columbia Falls

The Wildkats’ reward for winning the Northern A is a date with defending champions Laurel.

But Columbia Falls coach O’Brien Byrd could hardly be more confident in his team’s chances.

“We’ve done everything we possibly can to prepare” over the last week, Byrd said. “The girls feel battle-ready.”

The Wildkats (9-3, 6-2) are led by junior Josie Windauer up front. Windauer scored 28 goals this year, the second-highest total in Class A.

Freshman Maddie Robison is also an imposing threat in the attack, especially since being moved to the forward position. She tallied 13 goals and 11 assists on the season.

“We couldn’t be happier with where we are at. We’re 100 percent healthy, and our confidence is at an all-time high after winning the conference,” Byrd said.

All three Wildkats seniors play on defense, after Byrd moved Kaylee Ashe back from the midfield, and Byrd is happy with the results. But the veteran back line’s performance will have to stifle a Laurel (10-1-1, 4-1-1 Eastern A) attack that scored 64 goals this season.

The key to the game will be scoring first and setting the tempo of the match, Byrd said, so look for the Wildkats to be pressing early.

Byrd hopes the chance to host gives his team an edge.

“Home-field advantage is so big. Playing in front of hometown fans is a huge advantage,” he said.

The Wildkats will look to take down the Locomotives today at 1 p.m. at Columbia Falls High School.

Whitefish

The Bulldogs hope a title run begins today when they host Hamilton at 1 p.m. at Smith Fields.

Whitefish (8-5, 6-2) finished atop the Northern A with Columbia Falls, but the goal-difference tiebreaker meant a single goal dropped them to second.

Whitefish dispatched Polson 4-0 on Tuesday in a play-in game for the chance host a first-round quarterfinal playoff match.

No Whitefish players are near the top of Class A in goals or assists, but that speaks to the talent and well-balanced approach of the team’s attack. Senior Saylor Schlauch leads the charge at forward, with eight goals and two assists on the year, and junior Annie Cook has six goals to go with seven assists.

But Hamilton (10-2, 7-1 Southern A) is a difficult draw, led by the dual threat of Olivia Zepeda and Rylee Wiediger. Wiediger has 19 goals on the season and Zepeda leads Class A in assists with 18. In fact, she is two short of the state record for assists.

Dynamic duo: Hamilton's Wiediger, Zepeda

Dynamic duo: Hamilton's Wiediger, Zepeda have Broncs surging into state soccer

Hamilton's Rylee Wiediger

WIEDIGER--

The regular season finale for the Hamilton girls soccer team Saturday saw somewhat of a role reversal for two of the Broncs biggest stars.

On the third goal of the game for Hamilton, in its eventual 5-0 win at Stevensville, senior Olivia Zepeda and junior Rylee Wiediger teamed up to score.

That's nothing new. The duo are Hamilton's leading point scorers, as the Broncs (10-2-0 overall, 7-1-0 in conference) take the Southern A's No. 2 seed ahead of the State A quarterfinals on Saturday.

But the fact that it was Wiediger who dialed up a short crossing pass to Zepeda, who then finished with the score, was a bit unusual.

"She's been setting us all up all season long," Wiediger said of Zepeda. "It's really nice to finally be able to set her up."

That's not to say Wiediger doesn't know her way around an assist, it's just that Zepeda might very well be the best Montana has ever seen at handing out goals to her teammates. 

The 5-foot-2 Zepeda is among state soccer giants.

Entering the regular season finale, Zepeda sat at 18 assists, according to leaguelineup.com/nwmta. That's just two away from the state record for helpers in a season, according to the Montana High School Association (20; Anna Valentine; Libby; 2009).

Both girls, and their coach, Angie Fett, had it in the back of their minds to see if they couldn't help Zepeda set the record Saturday.

"...Going in to (Saturday's) game we're like 'let's just go out there and keep doing what we're doing. Olivia, get it to Ry and let's go,'" Fett said of Saturday's pregame discussion.

Which made Zepeda's eventual three-score game kind of funny. It was Zepeda's first hat trick of the season, and it came when she was hoping for a hat trick in assists.

"It's kind of a bittersweet thing, but I guess I just wanted to score the goals today," Zepeda said, chuckling.

Fortunately for Zepeda, the assist record is still attainable. Postseason stats accrue toward season totals, meaning a deep run in the playoffs for the Broncs — or a particularly dominant game — might just help see Zepeda break the bar.

Wiediger, meanwhile, didn't score a goal Saturday. It was the first time in at least the last eight games she hadn't personally sent the ball to the back of the net. She's also had three hat tricks across those eight games.

Her 19 total goals headed into the playoffs is tied for the fourth most in the state, according to leaguelineup.com/nwmta, as the junior has elevated her game to become one of the most lethal goal scorers in the state.

Saturday's quirkiness aside.

"(Wiediger is) such a selfless player and such a smart player, so it's nice to see them switch (scoring) roles (sometimes)," coach Fett said.

If anything, the performance by Wiediger and Zepeda in the regular season finale show that Hamilton isn't just a one-trick pony, which is a scary thought for the rest of Class A come this weekend.

***

The offensive prowess between Hamilton's leading point scorers reflects the Broncs' surge on the offensive end from 2017 in general.

Last year, the Broncs marched to a state semifinal appearance with steady offense and strong defense. The team's two-leading points contributors, since-graduated Tessa Della Silva and Wiediger, combined to finish with 47 points.

Wiediger alone has 45 points (19 goals, seven assists) this season. After Zepeda's hat trick Saturday boosted her season goal-scoring total to eight, the senior now tacks on another 34 points.

Obviously, that's meant a team-wide point differential increase. The Broncs have improved to plus-47, up from plus-28 a season ago. Their 2018 goal differential is the third best in the state and actually 39 goals better than Loyola Sacred Heart, which takes the No. 1 seed from the Southern A.

"We have such a strong attack — we changed our formation, so we have three forwards up top instead of two," Zepeda, a midfielder, said. "Our attack is more aggressive and harder to stop."

But the Hamilton tandem means more to the Broncs than simple statistics show.

"This year is really the year they connected on the field," said Fett. "They're growing and maturing into their roles, and they both love soccer. They love the sport so much and they both love this team."

It was a relationship that was personified post-game when Zepeda and Wiediger laughed and joked with each other on the field. 

"Next year's not going to be the same without here," Zepeda said of the underclassman Wiediger.

Fortunately, the two get a playoff run together, as the Hamilton girls search for their first state title since 2002. The Broncs will play Saturday at 1 p.m. and travel to face the winner of Tuesday's Northern A play-in game between Polson and Whitefish.

Polson 6, Columbia Falls 5

POLSON — The Columbia Falls Wildcats’ season ended with a loss to Polson in penalty kicks in the Class A playoff play-in match.

“Our season’s over and our boys had their greatest performance of the season,” Columbia Falls coach O’Brien Byrd said. “One of the gutsiest performances I’ve seen in a Wildcat jersey in a long, long, long time.”

Jason Albin scored in the 17th minute for Columbia Falls’ first lead, assisted by Payton Fisher. Polson’s Robin Erickson tied it in the 33rd minute and the Wildcats bounced back for a 2-1 lead with Fisher's score in the 69th minute. Erickson scored his second goal at 76 minutes, sending it to overtime. After two overtime periods, Polson pulled out the win 6-5 in penalty kicks.

“The first time we played Polson they beat us 6-0, then they beat us 3-0 and then to go into this game where we were ahead twice and then overtime and penalty kicks, it’s the reason why I coach,” Byrd said. “Young men playing with absolutely everything they have and making memories like tonight.”
