High School Soccer

Post by soccerSD » Sat Oct 28, 2017 8:05 am

Now that the soccer season has ended for all local teams, I had to have a post on here. I have been shocked that this is the first post of the season, I should say, after the season. I checked every day throughout the season to find nothing. I checked other sports to see if they were posting, and they were, so it must not be that it has fallen out of favor for other social media. I believe that I know one of the main reasons this forum died, but would be interested to know what others think the reasons are, if you can now break the silence.

For a long time it was me and a bunch of ND supporters. As they faded away I just stopped posting. I still go to many games a year and still can't believe ND didn't tie it at 3-3 last night. They did everything but put it in the net, with about 4 chances from within a couple feet.

Sorry, after ND coaches comment on looking forward to better competition after beating Morton 3-1, I lost all respect for the program. However, today he now has criticized the official who gave a player a red card, making him ineligible for next game. Officials must have seen something to make that taunting call. Probably my last soccer post.

A shame if what he said was a slam- I didn’t happen to hear it.
If it was more along the lines of “looking forward to playing teams that can run the whole field with us”, then I can believe that. In PND’s best years, at least in the past, all the central Illinois teams against Peoria ND would play a complete defensive shell with occasional counterattacks, hoping for a 0-0 or 1-1 tie and PKs.
A legitimate strategy but boring as hell to watch.
Once they get to the state semifinals, both teams almost always attack and play the whole field, which is much more fun for both players and fans, win or lose.
So I can certainly believe that that topic came up, but it’s poor form if it came out as a put down. But not a total surprise- Bare seems like a pretty blunt speaker in public.

Sounds like the red card was given for celebrating as they ran back after a goal- was labeled taunting but was not seemingly any type of taunt directly at the other team.
I’m a bit surprised that any soccer goal celebration short of flipping the bird would get a red card, since they seem to totally ham it up at all levels of play, including World Cup, after scoring.

And you could be right. I heard it twice, then again I don’t know the coach. Just thought it was like as if no one else here can compete with then. However, successful coaches can be like that.
