LIndbergh wins 22nd Annual Joe Carenza Memorial Tournament
The 22nd Annual CYC Joe Carenza Girls High School Tournament had plenty of big saves. None bigger than those provided by Oakville, Mehlville and CBC high school. The tournament was originally scheduled to start on Monday, April 25th, with all games being played at the Soccer Park. However, at 2pm on that Monday, we got a call from the Soccer Park saying they had to pull up their turf fields because the Meramec River was rising! So we had no fields to play on, and even if we could get grass fields, those were too wet. Becky Czuppon (with a big assist from Dave Robben), Bob Kern and Mike Bartoni were contacted Tuesday, and made their fields available for the tournament to proceed. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Not only from the folks at the CYC but from the 9 teams and coaches in the tournament.
Once under way, most games were very competitive, including 3 overtime games, 2 of those were decided by penalty kicks. In the end, the Lindbergh Flyers defeated Collinsville 3-0 in the championship game. Oakville took 3rd place over Webster Groves. On the consolation side, Rosati Kain scored with less than 2 minutes in the final game to tie the score. Then scored the game winner 1 minute into the first overtime period. Congratulations to the champions and thank you to all teams that participated and endured rain, last minute changes and rising flood waters.

If you like soccer and want to continue playing in the fall of 2011, have you considered playing in a CYC High School Soccer league? Each fall the CYC has a number of high school girls and boys teams compete in various leagues throughout the city and county.
If you are interested, here is all you need to know:
- Teams composed of all freshmen and sophomores would apply to play in the Juvenile division.
- Teams with juniors and/or seniors would apply to play in the Junior division.
- The season runs from mid-September to mid-November, with playoffs in late November. Most games are played on Sunday afternoons, with occasional games on Saturdays.
- Teams should be parish sponsored, but maybe made up of players from many different parishes. Often times, high school teams are made up of friends from the same high school. Many teams are formed after high school tryouts have been completed.
- Boys who play for their school team (C-team, B-team, JV or Varsity) are not eligible to play. However girls that play for their high school team may participate, since their high school season is in the spring.
- Players do not have to have a CYC ID card, but do need a photo ID. That could be a CYC ID card, drivers license or school ID, if it has a photo.
- Each team is required to have an adult coach on the bench at all times. This adult must have attended Protecting God's Children class, signed the Code of Conduct, and have had a Missouri Background check. This will be verified when you present your roster to your sponsoring parish for signature.

The next two games were 1-0 affairs, Collinsville over Washington in regulation, and Oakville winning in the first overtime against Trinity.

The Pioneers got the equalizer early in the second half, on a penalty kick. Granite City netted the winner with only nine minutes left in the contest. Granite City will play Rosati-Kain in one championship semifinal, while the other features Collinsville and Oakville, both games will be played at 7:30 Wednesday night.

Saturday's championship final had to be postponed, the new date and time has yet to be determined.
Saturday May 1st - After lightning and thunderstorms cancelled two games Friday night, teams returned to play in beautiful weather Saturday afternoon at the soccer park. Washington scored three first half goals and held Seckman to only one goal in the second half to post another victory for the Jays. In the third place game Oakville scored it's first goal at the 8 minute mark. The Tigers then got a second goal but saw Rosati-Kain score early in the second half.
