Lady Highlanders Win Play-In Game; Advance to Region Semi-Finals
October 25, 2010

The Forest Park women’s soccer team defeated Meramec 2-1 in the opening round of the Region XVI Tournament on Saturday Oct. 23.  The Lady Highlanders got goals from Katie Morris and Carrie Stone to defeat the Magic and move to the semi-finals which will be played at MCC-Blue River Oct. 29, in Independence, Missouri.

The game was the third meeting between the schools this season with each team earning a 1-0 victory during the regular season. Forest Park’s victory in the regular season meeting gave them a conference win, while Meramec won the regular season match that counted towards the region standings. With Meramec’s win in the regional contest they became the four seed, thus hosting number five seeded Forest Park in the opening round.

The first half was a tightly played contest where each team had numerous chances. Meramec had a goal called back as the referee ruled that the Lady Highlander goalkeeper, Beth Hatley, had been fouled. The score was 0-0 heading into halftime.

Meramec struck first in half number two, as Magic forward Amy Gaurino snuck behind the defense and scored giving the Magic a 1-0 lead. Forest Park answered back quickly and within seconds, the Lady Highlanders were on the board as freshman Katie Morris poked a loose ball passed the goalkeeper to tie the game 1-1. With the game tied, the play returned to the tightly played match it had been throughout the first half of play. With 25 minutes left to go, the 2009 Co-Region Player of the Year Carrie Stone, beat the last defender and calmly finished the Lady Highlanders second goal of the game. Hatley made some key saves down the stretch as Forest Park held on for the 2-1 win.

Stone has now scored in all four regional games the Lady Highlanders have played in the past two seasons (all victories). In 2009, the Lady Highlanders also played in the play-in game and won the tournament from the four seed. St. Charles and Forest Park met two times in the regular season with St. Charles winning both games 2-0. The regional semi-final will be played at MCC-Blue River in Independence, Missouri at 7:30 p.m.

Forest Park Men's Soccer Captures Conference Crown
October 18, 2010

 

For the first time since 1996, the Forest Park Highlanders sit alone atop the standings at season’s end in the Midwest Community College Athletic Conference. Forest Park finished the 2010 campaign with a 4-1 record inside of conference play.

The Highlanders put themselves in a in a great position on October 12, with a 2-1 overtime win at East Central to record their fourth conference win. On Saturday October 16, Lewis and Clark, the only team to defeat Forest Park in conference, had a chance to also reach 4-1 with a victory over reigning conference champion Jefferson College.

While the Highlanders knew Saturday was a potential day of celebration, they had their minds set on other goals as they traveled to Crowder to play for a number one seed inside of the Region XVI tournament. After a hard fought 1-0 loss to Crowder, Coach Greg Henson and his squad learned they were the 2010 conference champions, as Jefferson defeated Lewis and Clark 4-0. “It was a bittersweet feeling,” Henson said. “We set lofty goals for ourselves this pre-season to win our conference as well as our region. We would have liked the number one seed, but get back to work this week to prepare for Saturday’s quarter-final match.”

Although the Highlanders did not capture the number one seed in regional play, they still have their sights set on the regional championship.  The year of the last conference championship, 1996, was also the last time the Highlanders won the Region XVI crown and was the last time that Forest Park men’s soccer made a National Championship appearance.  

The Highlanders will begin their regional journey Saturday October 23 at 2 p.m. against St. Charles on the road. The women are also away, playing at Meramec at 1 p.m.

September 27, 2010

The teams met at the Midwest Soccer Academy for the 7th annual Hall of Fame Game which is part of the lineup in the St. Louis Soccer Hall of Fame induction weekend. The meeting with the Cougars was the second of the year for Forest Park, who defeated St. Charles 2-0 on the road on September 9.

In this contest, the Highlanders were able to get out to an early 1-0 lead when Joey Tibbles netted his third goal of the season at the three minute mark. The Cougars then tied it 1-1 with 20 minutes left in the half. Forest Park went back on the attack and were able to capitalize with a goal by sophomore Luc Wells, who scored his team high fifth goal of the season. Wells took a pass from freshman Matt Wood, beat two defenders before slotting the ball in the side netting for the eventual game winning goal.
