SOC Outlook

Post by juanmorales » Mon Aug 01, 2016 9:44 am

What's the SOC looking like this year??

I'm sure Valley takes a hit. Don't know about the G men from Glenwood or Clay. I know SW still has the Zimmayman kid.

On the other side.. What does Waverly and Burg have this year. Minford have anything??

I look for Waverly to be much improved this year. They were very young last year (only 1 senior?) with a first year coach. With more experience returning plus some nice Freshmen, they will be much more competitive. A parent I talked to said they looked good at the Rio Grande camp. Have not heard any reports from the Albany showcase this past weekend.

SW should win their 16th straight SOC1 title with ease. The SOC2 should be a tough fight. Burg, Minford and Waverly all have a shot. Minford and Burg both lost a lot to graduation, but Burg has 11 seniors this year, so I give the edge to Burg just based on experience and being the defending champs, but I don't see it being decided until October.

Webster easily wins SOC1 with Zimmerman winning offensive player of the year, and Dutiel who is all over the place winning defensive player of the year.

I agree that it will be a battle between Burg and Minford in SOC2. ChrIstian Hughes as offensive player, and either Tolle or Gullett from Minford winning defensive player of the year.

Big game for both Northwest and Wheelersburg today. Loser may be out of the SOC talk and winner is right up there putting pressure on Minford.

Good luck to both teams and injury free game

I really thought Northwest would have won or been closer to at least a tie. How did the game go if anyone was there?

NW played 6 in the back the whole game and had a few breakaway chances for #11, but other than that NW really didn't have many scoring opportunities. It was a struggle for Burg to penetrate the packed box on the NW end, but Burg did possess the ball much better.

Closer game than score showed. #11 would have had more breakawawy chances but kept getting grabbed as he ran by the defenders. Northwest also had a direct kick taken away as both teams setting up for it, opposite side ref called for a drop ball given. All in all, I would say both teams are equal. Northwest had shot on goal that hit side post and ricocheted off top post, if it went in they would have took 1-0 lead.

Waverly at Burg tonight. Is this the game that gets burg some momentum for the second half of the season? Another if you lose, your SOC hopes may be over early.
Waverly wasn't fast enough to contain Northwest speed so I don't see them stopping Hughes tonight.

3-1 Burg

I would think Waverly adjusted after Northwest game. I would be shocked if they let speed get behind them again. Waverly has some scorers and good possession skills. I would say whoever scores first will probably win.

That may not be necessary in 3 or 4 years. Northwest is on par with Minford, Burg and Waverly, and West's youth system has caught up and is producing some good players. They're expecting 12-15 freshman next year who have had several winning seasons in a row and has a few players who could be stars.

Agree with the last statement to some extent. I've heard west has a few huge classes coming up and even with just more numbers it will help, let alone a few kids who are really skilled. Minford, Burg, and Waverly have always been decent year in and year out it seems. Northwest has really improved the past few years and is competing/winning games with these top teams now as well. Waverly is mostly underclassman this year and will be even better next I would think. Northwest will as well, only losing 1 or 2 guys after season. BIGGEST issue as always is Webster...Obviously if you have won the league back to back to back to back to back...and so on....that's what needs looked at. I like the idea of what the premier league does and the winner of SOC 1 moves up each year and last place of SOC 2 down...sounds cool at least...i'm sure scheduling would come into play

Minford 2 Waverly 1

After one official tried to clear the stands before resuming play because a fan yelled something, Minford scored 2 goals in the final 8 minutes to win. One Minford fan was ejected but the ref wasn't able to clear the stands.

Anyone ever seen this before?

I think to threaten to clear the stands because of the actions of one fan is a little much. If the issue was addressed and the fan was removed, why even consider that? I have seen crowds being a little rowdy and usually when someone gets tossed things calm down to a reasonable level.

Every time you go out to watch a soccer game at minford this always happen. Some of the minford fans act like they have no sense.

At the midpoint of the boys SOCII season, Minford is 4-0 and Wheelersburg is 3-1. Big game next week between the sprinkler trenches in Muletown. Hughes will be back in action and nobody seems to be scoring a lot of goals, so it will be a close one.

On the girls side, Wheelersburg is 4-0 and Minford is 2-1-1. Minford needs to trip up the Lady Pirates and then get some help to stay in the race.

I am sure if you watched a Burg game where 2 of your players are obviously fouled and injured on plays in less than a minute with no calls from the officials, I would believe you would express your displeasure as well. So practice your superiority complex somewhere else.

Was Hughes out against West on Tuesday? 1-0 result seems odd for Burg?

Interesting stat about the first half of SOC 2 play. 5 games decided by 1 goal and 4 games were 1-0. Tough matches with all teams in the league. I don't think Minford makes it out undefeated and I would bet somewhere in the second half of league play we will see a tie or two.

Yes, he was dinged up from the Waverly game, but is possibly back tonight for Valley and will be back next week for sure.

I state an opinion, in which you do not deny, and your response is that I'm one of those snobby burg people. Sounds to me you are more concerned about the people of burg instead of acknowledging that some of your fan base act cooky", which they do. Again in context of the original post I said SOME fans ACT, but your reply suggest that the entire community of wheelerburg are arrogant.

The Minford fan that was tossed must have been the ref singling out someone he knew, because the fan was primarily quiet throughout. The only things he yelled was encouragement to the players. How the ref can single him out from across the field is beyond me.

Nobody in the crowd said anything derogatory to the official. They disagreed with 2 obvious no calls in which 2 players were injured. As I stated above, any fan in that situation would do the same.

You had to use a stereotype to criticize our fans and try not to generalize your comment by inserting the word "some", You still made a comment that was an obvious put down towards Minford fans, and I called you on it. In addition, you tried to say my comment was towards all of the Wheelersburg community. No, my comment was meant for you and you only. I am friends with many in the Wheelersburg community, and wouldn't generalize a statement like that to the whole community.

I feel your your comment was basically an attempt to paint Minford in a negative light. That game was the first game all season we have had a major disagreement with the officiating, and the officiating that night deserved it. The officials this season has done a very good job. A lot of the new, younger officials have helped better the officiating in the area. Romanello is another very good official, and hope he is one of the officials in all our games.

I am as honest as it gets, and will apologize for my jab towards you. However, you shouldn't make comments like you made to begin with.

Hughes will be back in action this week against Minford and Webster, and after the first two defeats I'm sure him and The Pirates are ready to step up this second half of the season, thoughts?

Not sure how wet the field will be with the rain we have got. If it's a sloppy and a scrappy game I think burg has advantage. If it's not to bad and Minford can spread out and pass around burg for the second time this year, Minford wins and clinches the Gold Ball.

I know when I drove through on Tuesday, the sprinklers were running full blast, so I would imagine with this rain the field will be pretty sloppy
