NWSL Champions And The Victory Tour Moves On

KC Score 2015 ChampionsNWSL Champions and the victory tour moves on as

women’s soccer grows in fan base across the country.

FC KC claim their second title in two years with a 1-0 victory

over Seattle Reign Oct 1st in Portland OR for the NWSL

championship. Nicole Barnhart and the KC team defense

dialed up a shutout against the number one team in wins

for the 2015 NWSL regular season, what a strong way to end it.

 

Amy Rodriguez knocked in the only goal, just passed Hope Solo, from a great placed cross

from Heather O’Reilly who received a nice through ball from Lauren Holiday just seconds

earlier. Both teams battled all game up and down the pitch. Seattle had a 70th minute blown

call for a possible pk but the ref must have been out of position. Megan Rapinoe rattled the post

with a nice shot in the second half. Give credit to the head coach Vlatko Andonovski,  his staff set up

a great team defense model to shut down Kim Little and the high powered Seattle Reign. Many great

players on both sides, and many small battles, Solo vs Barnhart, Holiday vs Rapinoe, Rodriguez vs

Barnes, Sauerbunn vs Little, and Coach Laura vs Coach Vlatko. Evenly matched clubs, flip a coin

and you’ll pick a winner 55/45 after 100 flips, it’s only inches in a championship game. The 2015 NWSL

season ends with many awards given out and many reflections of highlights of each club across the

country as they all now get ready for 2016. Golden Boot award goes to Crystal Dunn of the Washington

Spirit being the top goal scorer for the 2015 season. Becky Sauerbunn from FCKC got the defender of

the year award. Michele Betos of the Portland Thorns got the best goalie award. Danielle Colaprico of

the Chicago Red Stars got the rookie of the year award. Seattle’s Laura Harvey pulled in the Coach of

the year award and the Reign received the “supporters shield” having the best record in the league.

Here are some links to videos about each teams highlights through out the season.

U9,U10,U11,U12,U13 Girls Watching World Cup Team USA

USA Womens Team WC 2015

U9,U10,U11,U12,U13 girls watching world cup team USA taking

care of business verses Australia 3-1, Sweden 0-0, and Nigeria 1-0, with two US

wins and only one tie, winning the grp D “group of death”.  Now the US is up against

 

the up and coming Colombian team who beat France, the third ranked women’s team in the world

and with one win, one tie, one loss, they made it through to the next round on June 22nd meeting

team USA. The US squad is very defensively solid. Hope Solo and the defensive four in the back have

only given up one goal in 3 matches and shutting out two tough teams in Nigeria and Sweden.

The USA old coach Pia Sundhage is now coaching Sweden and gets the highly favored Germans on

June 20th. Our US coach today is Jill Ellis who many think is doing a great job modeling this new

squad with the solid veterans team USA is fielding. Offensive is alittle shaky still,  Alex Morgan is

just know coming back from a tough injury and Abby Wambach is trying to work with the new

midfielders and support strikers. Megan Rapinoe saved the day in the first match with two goals

and Christen Press add one to put USA up 3-1 on Australia, and Hope Solo had many amazing saves.

Sweden match was all defense, the midfield and forwards for team USA could not put anything together,

but atleast defense saved the point. In the Nigeria match, PLEASE COACH ELLIS,

STOP WITH THE SHORT CORNER KICK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have Wambach, Press, Rapinoe, Sauerbrunn, Johnston, Holiday, AND LLOYD !!!!!!!!

Put the ball on goal between the 12 yd and six yard marker and let them take it out of the air….

We all screamed at the TV during the Nigeria match, someone in Canada heard us,

next play Wambach scores……   GOALLLLLLLLL…. What a concept. PUT THE BALL ON GOAL

The short corner kick play works .000001% of the time, it puts everyone out of sync

and CREATES NO DANGER. On the flip side, a ball put 6 to 15 yrds from goal, has a 6% scoring finish….

Pull up 100 corner kicks taken by our US women’s team,  6 GOALS over 100 tries, do the math.

PLEASE, stop the short corner!!!! USE OUR HEIGHT Advantage….

The U9,U10,U11,U12,U13 girls watching world cup team USA want to see their team

bring home the CUP.  Go USA



FIFA Scandal 2015 And The Women’s World Cup

US Womens Defender Players

FIFA scandal 2015 and the women’s world cup starts June 6th in Canada.

What a week, Wed May 27th only two days before the FIFA organization

votes for a new president, six people were picked up at the FIFA hotel by

 

Swiss police on behalf of the US Attorney General’s office and the FBI. Update at end of this article..

Later 10 others were nabbed across the world to make it 16 in total that were arrested for corruption with

bribery charges. On Friday May 28th Sepp Blatter was again voted in as the president of FIFA for the

fifth term. Can you imagine? Russia has a world cup coming up in 2018, now is that in the balance?

Is there proof of any wrong doing on how they landed that event? How about Qatar, people dying in

building the stadiums, and the event moved to the Nov 2022 for high summer heat and religious

reasons given. Sepp Blatter is in the hot seat right now, soon more people will fall in the FIFA scandal

as more turn on the others who took more than $110 to $160 million in kick backs from what Loretta

Lynch US Attorney General and FBI James Comey have released to date. The real question is how

does this affect the Women’s World Cup kicking off June 6th in Canada? Will the highly favored US

squad finish with the cup after losing to Japan in 2011 on penalty kicks? The US team looks very

focused as Abby Wambach many be playing her final matches for the red, white, and blue kits after

an amazing career and record breaking achievements. The squad for Canada WC 15 looks like Shannon

Boxx, Morgan Brian, Lori Chalupny, Whitney Engen, Ashlyn Haris, Tobin Heath, Lauren Holiday, Julie

Johnston, Meghan Klingenberg, Ali Krieger, Sydney Leroux, Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan, Alyssa Naeher,

Kelley O’Hara, Heather O’Reilly, Christen Press, Christie Rampone, Megan Rapinoe, Amy Rodriguez,

Becky Saurbrunn, Hope Solo, and All World Abby Wambach. Coach Jill Ellis has a high powered

offense with Wambach and Leroux while Alex Morgan hopfully recovers from an injury. The defense

looks strong with Solo, Saurbrunn, Klingenberg, Johnston, Krieger, O’Hara, and stronghold master

Rampone. Midfield is scrappy and quick with amazing over lapping runs from Rapinoe, Lloyd, Press,

Heath, Holiday, Engen, Brian, and Boxx all these players are all over the pitch.

Hopefully the FIFA scandal 2015 and the women’s world cup doesn’t mess up the US team from

playing June 8th in Canada, because we have a huge chance to bring home the hardware…..

GOOD Luck Ladies, can’t wait to celebrate with you… Great videos below

Fast skills and best drills U10,U11,U12,U13,U14 helps the youth players build a foundation of

simple skills to use in game play. Setting up your base moves and working on your footwork is

something you can do everyday by yourself. Learning to move the ball back n forth and side to side

is the base moves needed to learn as you get more feel and touch for the ball. Small touches and

movements can make all the difference when trying to keep defenders on their heels and guessing

where you are going. Learn to touch the ball side to side and use a pull back move the get the

defenders leaning the wrong way. Turn your back to the defender and shield the ball to buy

some time for other player support to gather, but many times you may just have to move the

away from pressure and move into a clear space as you buy time to regroup. Cutting the ball

hard and using the outside part of your foot is always a great skill to master, as you always need

to learn how to keep the head up to view the field. Another tip is the always move towards a ball played

to you, if you wait for a ball to get to you, 70% of the time a defender will pick it off, and just moving

to the ball cuts off that half of a second of a defender making that play. Watch these videos for some

fast skills and best drills U10,U11,U12,U13,U14

Indoor soccer rules and 3 great indoor goals showing how crazy fun watching and playing indoor can be.

In the indoor game the boards are so important to use as another player or a quick redirection to get

a goal. Goalies work hard getting the angles narrowed down and using their feet to deflect and set up

other field players quickly. Defenders push the play towards the side boards to keep the angles of

scoring to their advantage. Goalies rules in the indoor soccer game can differ when it comes to picking

up the ball. More shots on goal, so goal scoring is much higher in an indoor game. The Pro Indoor

Leagues are finishing up their seasons, in the PASL Chicago, Detroit, Hidalgo, Dallas, Las Vegas, and

San Diego all had a great season in 2013-14. Out of 20 teams in the league the Chicago Mustangs went

16-0 and now the final 4 are fighting it out in the PASL playoffs. Over in the MISL / USL, the final 2 are

playing right now to crown the champion, Missouri Comets have a one game lead over the defending

champs Baltimore Blast. Comets went 14-6 this season, just beat the hot Milwaukee Wave to get into

the finals, Blast went 17-3 in 2013/14 schedule. Watch these videos and see the links for indoor soccer rules and 3 great indoor goals, it will encourage you to get on the turf.
