Regional Championship Well Earned

Oct 20th, 2012 (8:00 am)

The Pioneer soccer team earned another Regional Championship on Friday night by beating higher seeded rival Bloomington High School. In the intercity tournament earlier this year, Bloomington got the better of UHigh by beating them 4-3. The Pioneers got revenge on Friday by winning 1-0, ending Bloomington's season. UHigh's pressure started early in the match with several chances and some good sustained possession throughout. 13 minutes into the match, Piers Hunter found the ball on the left wing, deep in Bloomington's half. Hunter played a cross into the box which skipped onto Brad Dulee. Dulee settled the ball and struck it past the Bloomington goalkeeper, putting the Pioneers up. With about 5 minutes left in the 1st half, Bloomington had a great chance just outside the box. The shot was seemingly going into the upper corner before Andrew Kamischke stretched out and got his hand on the ball. The 2nd half stayed the same as the game swung back and forth, with descent chances for each side. The score ended 1-0 (Kamischke's 6th shutout of the year) and UHigh will be moving on to play Tuesday night against the winner of the Champaign Central vs. Urbana match. CONGRATULATIONS PIONEERS!

UHigh Turns Away Springfield HS

Sep 30th, 2012 (10:00 am)

The Pioneers did not let an early goal discourage them from their plans on Wednesday night. They answered quickly when Hunter Somers slipped around a defender but was taken down in the box, drawing a penalty shot. Brad Dulee capitalized on the opportunity and tied the game. Quickly after Dulee's goal, there was a scramble in the Springfield High School penalty box, and Basheer Becerra finished the chance, making it 2-1. The drama continued immediately after that when Springfield was given a penalty shot. UHigh goalkeeper Andrew Kamischke was up to the challenge. He made a diving save to his left and then a diving save to his right to stop the rebound and keep the momentum for the Pioneers. With 10 minutes remaining in the half, Brad Dulee received the ball in the middle of the field and hit a through ball to Hunter Somers. Somers smoothly touched it around the keeper and finished the opportunity into the open net. The 3-1 advantage was tested in the second half as Springfield scored late to make it 3-2.
