Also, Lindbergh defeated Mehlville in district soccer.
Deja vu would be a good thing this week for the Lindbergh girls soccer team. The Flyers were seeded fourth in last year's district tournament and won the title with victories over Mehlville (1-0), Cor Jesu (in penalty kicks) and Rockwood Summit (in a come-from-behind overtime thriller). Lindbergh is once again seeded fourth in the Class 3 District 8 Tournament and the Flyers took the first step toward what it hopes will be a repeat with a 2-0 victory over Mehlville in the first round Saturday at Mehlville. The game was scoreless at half before senior Kate Campbell scored for the Flyers. Mehlville had a tremendous scoring opportunity while down 1-0 after a corner kick. But Flyer goalkeeper Nina Tzianos made the initial save and back …

Mehlville defeated Parkway North at home on Senior Night.
The Mehlville seniors led the team by scoring all but two goals in a 9-0 rout of Parkway North Friday. Lauren Guerrero had two goals, with fellow senior Katie Rapisardo and sophomore Kayla Hezel giving the Panthers a 4-0 lead in the first half. “They did a good job and the seniors led the scoring and that’s what’s fun about it,” Mehlville coach Tom Harper said. “This is the way we’ve been playing and this is the kind of streak we’ve put together and this is the time you want that culmination of that skills set to come together and we’re starting to see that from this group.” Senior Abby Presson scored to start the second half, and Allison Wade made it 6-0 with 21 minutes left. Guerrero took another shot with 16 minutes left, but the …

The Panthers defeated the Northwest Lions Tuesday at home.
The Mehlville Panthers earned their fourth straight win as senior Haylee Thibodeaux scored two goals in the second half against the Northwest Lions Tuesday at home. Not only was it her first two-goal game of the season, it was the first time the senior scored by kicking, rather than heading the ball in. “It takes a senior like Haylee in games like that to step up and score two goals, to put you on her back and propel the team to a win,” said Coach Tom Harper. Fellow senior Claire Steward was in goal for the victory, making it her fourth shutout in six wins. “With Claire back there, she’s going to give us the big save when we need it, when the game is on the line,” Harper said. “When she’s in the line-up, Mehlville has a chance to win.” …

Also, Ashley Burton scores the game-winner in a 3-2 Tiger victory over the Flyers.
A couple of familiar foes stepped on the field Thursday night at the Anheuser-Busch Center for the championship game of the Joe Carenza-CYC Soccer Tournament. And this time it was Oakville that came home with the championship trophy (for the second time in the last four years). The Tigers defeated Lindbergh 3-2. The two teams had played earlier in the season with Oakville coming out on top 1-0. "It was a typical Oakville-Lindbergh game," Tiger coach Dave Robben said. "Those games are always hotly-contested and this one was back-and-forth." The Tigers led three different times in the game, the final time after Ashley Burton broke a 2-2 tie with a goal with about 10 minutes remaining in the game. "We played well throughout the tournament," …

Lindbergh baseball also has a big week.
Depth has been a strength for the 2012 Oakville boys tennis team. Tiger coach Linda Gebauer was confident that her team would do well at the bottom half of their order in Wednesday's rivalry match against Mehlville. The Tigers did sweep the bottom matches but also did well at the top of the lineup in an 8-1 victory. Oakville improved to 5-4 for the season. "We have been competing well all season," Gebauer said. "Two of our losses have come by 4-3 scores. We used a 6-3 district format against Mehlville and knew they would be good in that format with players able to double back. Mehlville has a couple of pretty strong players at the top of the lineup and we knew those matches would be critical." Oakville senior Alex Bergman won the match of …

The Tigers bested the Panthers at home on Saturday.
It almost goes without saying that when the Oakville and Mehlville girls soccer teams meet up at any point during the season, area soccer fans are going to see a clean, yet hard fought game between the two district rivals. Saturday afternoon was no different as Oakville pulled out a 2-1 win at home in overtime. “What can you say, I mean its Oakville versus Mehlville,” Oakville head coach Dave Robben said. “It was a pretty intense game.” Mehlville (1-2, 1-1 Suburban West) took a 1-0 lead early in the first half on a goal by Kaela Luna. The goal for the senior forward was her first of the season. “Kaela’s been struggling here at the beginning of the year,” “She’s not a little known secret for us anymore and teams have been keying on her a …

The decision forces athletes to choose between playing for their high school and academy teams.
High school and club soccer coaches are still reeling from United States Soccer’s decision to force athletes to decide between playing for their high schools and the U.S. Soccer Development Academy (USDA). U.S. Soccer announced Feb. 10 it was going to adopt a 10-month season running from September to July starting this fall. High school athletes cannot play on two teams at the same time, forcing players to choose between high school and academy teams. The Scott Gallagher Metro Program is the only USDA program in the St. Louis area with four teams for boys ages 15 to 18. The team’s purpose is to develop the nation’s top players to improve the country’s professional team. Earlier this month, Patch hosted a live chat with local coaches and …
