The Forecast

Unsettled weather should be behind us, looking dry and 80 plus at kick off.



Rainy Days and Coed Cancellations are Always on My Mind

Well, it finally happened. We had a rain out. We have had smoke outs and lightning bolts and now finally a rain out. I know, I know it probably be would have been OK but the county closed the fields at North Valley. Oddly, I am sure the fields were not as wet as the week the county left the sprinklers on! However, I will say I was close to the NV valley location and it did come down in quite quantifiable amounts. For the sake of simplicity I decided to postpone all the games. Apologies if you did not get notification in time; a valiant effort to reach everyone was made. Whenever, you are suspicious of conditions it is worth giving your email a final check before leaving.


Last week’s postponed games will be played this week. Options to avoid losing a round of games are being explored. Adding an extra game on weekday evening is on the table as is sneaking in a Sunday morning affair. Stay tuned on that.



Do You Remember? Do You Recall?

The collective amnesia of your captains prompts me to ask members of the yellow and white team this question: Did you score in your last game (May 14th)? Our records are incomplete. Be honest!


Sports Illustrated – The Old Soccer Outfit Edition

Would anyone like to send me a picture or two of themselves (or fellow league members) in soccer gear from years gone by? I was thinking it would be good opportunity to scan old pictures into your computer. Be a sport, email a picture or two to me at tolleyfoggy@earthlink.net.


Help Wanted

Looking for that big chance to coach in the big leagues? Well, McQueen High School is looking for a JV Girls coach. If you are interested, or know someone who is, contact 11-year RSCSL veteran Tony “the Godfather of Reno Youth Soccer” Filicchia at tfilicchia@washoeschools.net.


Payment

If you have not paid, don’t forget. You can go to the website www.renoseniorcoedsoccer.com, find me at the fields, or send a check to RSCSL at 5694 Tappan Drive, Reno Nv, 89523. My Sicilian cousins are helping me line the fields….


Après-Soccer

We are a social league. We like to get together after the games (it certainly helps us get over games that maybe got a wee bit chippy). When we are playing at North Valleys, folk gravitate to Archies on North Virginia near UNR, or maybe even next door to the Little Waldorf. Those playing in the south head to Lamppost Pizza near RC Willey. Those playing at Reno High often gather for a post game post mortem at The Truckee River Bar & Grill, a mere stone’s throw from the field. By the second half of the season we are all playing down south, so we all go to Lamppost.

Perfect footie weather, again.


As The League Turns

Go away for a couple of days and the space-time continuum gets out of whack. The next thing you know it is 8pm on Wednesday evening and you have not wrote, let alone sent out the Goalpost. Results were pretty emphatic last week in the sultry heat of a May evening in Northern Nevada. As the collective Pinot Noir brain trust put it, they are now done with “Murderer’s Row” and can get back to competing, maybe even winning some games. As we eagerly await the first big showdown of the season between Cut the Cheese, sorry Cut-to-the-Chase, and the Bee Gees, sorry Bhoys & Ghirls, the Surgical Strikers served notice with a clinical 4 point victory over Le Studs (it is that clean sheet bonus point thing) that is really annoying those purist Scots among us. Meanwhile, OBG are gathering their own momentum, although their most recent victory over Precision does warrant an asterisk and maybe even the odd semi-colon; old, slow, fat goalie subbing for opposition*. Much fancied pre-season favorites, Game of Throw-Ins continue to struggle, although always mentioned yet curiously absent Sir Reginald Bolden believes this coming week will be the turning point for the cellar dwellers. A resurgent and well-attended The Young and the Rest of Us are proving to be the surprise package so far, although they seem incapable of remembering who scored all their goals. Having said that, the Chaingang are having no problem recalling their goal scorers and, for that matter, the opposition’s goals too. Despite netting 7 goals last week the Chaingang still managed to lose by two in a 7-5 defeat to the Central Powers, whom we affectionately refer to as Cut to the Cheese, sorry Chase.

The Forecast

Extensive negotiations with DRI and the powers-to-be successfully staved off the threat of rain last week and I have been assured of a repeat performance this week with invigorating conditions in the ascendancy. So as long as the sprinklers do not come on…




Absence Makes the Goal Difference Go Wander

There were a couple of close ones and a few not so close ones. OBG squeaked a late winner over the Studs as Teddy Ruxspin opened his account for the year reviving Fortress Reno’s reputation and OBG’s dynastic ambitions. Down south a Reggie “always mentioned” Bolden-less Game of Throw-Ins threw in the towel as a rampant Scottish hoard took no prisoners with Laurie McHadwick tallying the first female hat-trick of the season; catapulting herself to the giddy heights of the-soon-to-be published scoring charts. Up at the North Valleys wetland reserve the sprinklers may have been shut down but the goal spigot was turned on. Cut to the Chase put 6 by the reduced ranks of Precision but once again squandered the opportunity to gather the now much cherished bonus clean sheet point. The Strikers are also beginning to get their motor running and are heading for the highway, putting 5 past by Pinot Nomoire (?) whose early season promise has gone, shall we say, a little vinegary. Nonetheless, Noir’s Jason “I Scored a Goal” Cole did just that and checked yet another line item off his bucket list. It was a chip, so Jason reports, Rory would have been proud to finish. A hundred or so yards to the northwest the Chaingang kept breaking rocks and finally broke Mike DellaRocker’s stubborn resistance as Gene “the white-tufted eagle scout” Furr poached yet another soft one to negate another rarity; a Nick “Sportsdome” Barainca header. If Furr keeps this up he will have to come off the endangered goal scorer’s list. All square on NV1-1.

Surgical Strikers 5 v 2 Game of Throw-Ins

Bhoys & Ghirls 5 v 0 The Young and the Rest of Us

Cut to the Chase 5 v 1 Pinot Noir

Precision 3 v 3 Real Studs


The Forecast

Long john temperatures with possible showers, but the fields will likely be drier than last week. Do not make assumptions about the weather and games being called off. Unless winds exceed 100 mph, with temperatures dipping below 0 degrees Fahrenheit and rain falling at less than 1 inch per hour we play!


Slippery When Wet

Games at the North Valleys water park were a wee bit soggy last week as the RSCSL became the Reno Water Polo Association for the night. I have sent some emails and I have been assured that the sprinklers have been turned off. With man-made disasters now averted, hopefully mother-nature will not intervene.


Victory at Sea

Bhoys & Ghirls 5 v 0 The Young and the Rest of Us

Anchored by Nicolas “Cousteau” McColumbant, the Scottish contingent, feeling right at home in the conditions, set about demolishing the upstart Young and the Wettest of Us. New league member Alison Mc Foltz put two away in her North Valleys debut fir the Buoys and Gils, sorry Bhoys and Ghirls as they cruised to a titanic 5-0 victory.


US Diving Team Scores Big

Surgical Strikers 5 v 2 Game of Throw-Ins

On pool number 3, the Surgical Strikers dipped their big toes into pool to find the temperature quite to their liking; finally beginning their season with an aquatic, sorry emphatic, win over the much fancied Game of Throw-Ins who seemed to be sinking at the deep end. Brock “Steve McQueen” Richter opened the scoring with an optimistic, wind-assisted free kick that left Throw-Ins keeper Henry “El Loco” Pieters with that sinking feeling. Reggie “Always Mentioned” Bolden pegged one back cleaning up a well-struck, well-saved penalty when Cesar Sanchez through him a life line. Reggie phoned a friend and “Bob’s your uncle”, the Throw-Ins were back in business momentarily. From then on it was an upstream battle as the Strikers ripped off their water wings, floated like a butterfly and took to water like a bunch, flock, herd, whatever of ducks.


Unchartered Waters

Precision 3 v 3 Real Studs

On the relative dry land of NV1, Precision cruised to a 3-3 tie with the Studs. With keeper Charlie Daniels back from a rendezvous with Satan somewhere in Dixie, Precision took a different tack by not conceding 4 goals and scoring as many as the opposition…. a rock solid recipe for a tie. With the Studs also sailing in the unchartered waters of an unbeaten streak of one they can now dock in the port of the defending champions with an unbeaten run of two!


Family Affairs

OBG Stoners 2 v 4 Chaingang

Still suffering from travel sickness OBG are no road warriors, despite goals from the Duffy dynasty and its adopted son – Santiago “New York, London, Munich, Paris, Stead, Everybody’s Talking about” Esparza. A hat-trick from the Krueger house-hold , and the rarity of a goal from Gene “the white-tufted eagle scout” Furr kept the Chaingang’s title hopes on track after shakey start to the season. But with theDuffy dynasty returning to home pastures at fortress Reno, the season’s plot will surely thicken just like a gravy boat of Bisto.


Is Pinot Noir Maturing Too Fast?

Cut to the Chase 5 v 1 Pinot Noir

Pinot’s Noir fairy tale beginning came to an abrupt halt as they ran into the emerging juggernaut that is Cut-to-the- Cheese, sorry Chase an unholy alliance between Reno’s finest surgeons, Irish rebels and the remnants of the Hapsburg Empire. Only a last minute spot kick from league debutant Jared “Bucket List” Schindler prevented the already controversial, but much valued bonus point going CTTC way. Schindler’s goal also saved the family name, after Ingrid Mary’s “tricycle” kick trickled wide of the

OBG Stoners 0 vs. 1 Pinot Noir

Surgical Strikers 0 vs. 4 Chaingang

Bhoys & Ghirls 4 vs. 1 Precision

Cut-to- the-Chase 2 vs. 1 The Young and the Rest of Us

Real Studs 4 vs. 3 Game of Throw-Ins





Homesick Stoners Uncorked by Vintage Pinot Noir Performance

OBG Stoners 0 vs. 1 Pinot Noir

The Stoners huffed and puffed but they could not blow Pinot Noir’s house down; the wall that Chris “mutton chops” Arbogast built proved a formidable barrier for the defending champs. The Stoners, accustomed to the idyllic environs of Reno High are finding that the extended road trip to the distant valleys of the north is taking its toll on their form. More accurately their lack of form is maybe the surprise of the campaign thus far. But perhaps that is doing Pinot Noir an injustice. Cheered vociferously by what can only be described as the lunatic fringe residing on the touchline Pinot Noir are perhaps surprising themselves as much as other teams. A second victory on the trot secured by Lindsay Parks’ 80th minute effort which spent an apparent eternity tickling the goal line before kissing the inside of the far post and ruffling the Stoners’ egos but barely ruffling the net.

Cut-to the-Chase Prescribe Tough Medicine

Cut-to- the-Chase 2 vs. 1 The Young and the Rest of Us

Amid the pleasant banter between Cut-to-the-Chase and officiating crew a soccer game was being played and questions were being asked. Could the Young and the Rest of Us be the second surprise package of the season? Are they to become the Southampton of the RSCSL? Could they resist the Machiavellian machinations of the local medical community? Would Cut-to-the-Chase be the next to be Dellarockered? The answers are – possibly, no, no and no. However, contrary to most punters who CTTC as clear favorites TYATROU were in the game all the way until the edge of night began to broadcast. Squeaking by with a 2-1 victory CTTC are announcing their title ambitions. Squeaking by with a 2-1 defeat TYATROU are planning on writing more of the script this season. To be continued as the season turns.

Strikers Remain Strikeless, Chaingang Find the Keys

Surgical Strikers 0 vs. 4 Chaingang

With one eye on Vegas the Strikers may have been a wee bit goal shy. Combined with some noteable absences including Shawn “Sportsdome” Stimpson and Kiara “Off-the” Wallstrum, the Strikers failed to set the game on fire and by half time the Chaingang had already put them to bed, tucked them in, read them a story and brought them a cup of cocoa. Scoring as many goals as last week and conceding a lot less than last week was just the formula the ‘Gang needed to get their wobbly start behind them and to prepare them for the coming expedition beyond the Arctic Circle to Eagle Canyon.

In a Land Far, Far Away Stud Subs Rule

Real Studs 4 vs. 3 Game of Throw-Ins

A ding-dong ballet upon the wastelands of the far north between pretenders to the throne was fine fare for all three travelling fans of the Real Studs. They did not leave disappointed, not only because there team won but apparently they were all mightily impressed with the quality of subs brought in to cover a “wounded wegular woster”, as Elmer Fudd might say. Treated to a half-time show provided by a stiff breeze and an aluminum goal no one left complaining. Studs’ keeper Peter “what the hell was that?” Krengel compared his carefully choreographed dance of death to the performances of Keaton (that is Buster not Michael) he remembers fondly as a young boy. I cannot let a week go by without mentioning Reggie “Scenic Route” Bolden, although I should because he was not there… having missed the turn off for Eagle Canyon he was last seen heading north on Pyramid highway hoping to get in line for stand-by tickets to Burning Man. On a serious note, the goals at Eagle Canyon will be anchored down this coming week.





A Star is Born

Bhoys & Ghirls 4 vs. 1 Precision

With Scott “Politically Correct” Andrew sidelined with a hang-nail and Scott the Scot detained in the delivery room a panicked Jim “Mr. Relentless” Wilson was forced into emergency action. Using his influence at RTI he pirated a medivac chopper to whisk Scott the Scot to South Valleys shortly after giving birth to his son; an entrance not seen since James Bond delivered another old queen to the London Olympics. Obviously exhausted, Scott the Scot could only conjure two goals this week but that was precisely enough to thwart a struggling Precision, who have yet to discover a winning formula. Both debut at North Valleys this week? Could that trigger a change in fortunes?

Any Volunteers?

An extra couple of hands this Sunday, May 3rd to help line the field at Reno High would turn a chore into a pleasant stroll with friends. I was planning to be there around 3pm. Drop me an email if you can make it.

There Is No Whining in Soccer – Pinot Noir 4 – 2 Precision

Venturing to the tundra of the far north just south of the Arctic Circle and out of cell phone range, members of Precision and Pinot Noir successfully located the Eagle Canyon fields and even found parking. With Justin Time firmly planted between the sticks and others arriving just in time for kick-off after avoiding a bombardment from hostile local little leaguers (who were actually part of the opening ceremonies) the game actually started. It took a few minutes for the game to ferment as Pinot Noir started out more like a Nouveau Beaujolais with a few fresh grapes just picked from the registration form providing a fresh bouquet of goals, debutants Williams and Lusby (now formerly known as Little & Large and to some older Brits as Toshack & Keegan) stomping over the opposition as if they were table grapes just letting out a little whine. An increasingly well-aged Mike ChamPagni brought some bubble to the affair with a certain “Veuve Cliq-goal” to make it 4 for the Noir. An already injury-ridden Precision fired back with a goal from Mike “it is a wrap” Reynolds, while Armando Palofax actually texted a goal to make it two.


Season 1 (11 or maybe 5) – Game of Throw-Ins 2 – 2 OBG Stoners


Venturing east across the great divide and through the notorious Valley of the Sun one ultimately stumbles upon the great plains known as North Valley Regional Park. Upon these not-so-green and not-so-pleasant fields came plenty of excitement as this season’s plot already unfolded at the pace of an HBO mini-series. Under the guest direction of King Reggie the Razorback, Caitlyn “buy me a vowel” Wrycza staked claim to her throne with two first half goals that left the defending champs a wee bit miffed and their sartorial splendor a little off point. But champions find a way back (unless they are Man City): a late first half goal from Generalisimo Santiago “Stonewall” Esparza paved the way for an early Cinco de Mayo celebration and for new recruit Meghan “McQueen of the Stone Age” Smyth to knot it all up at two apiece, a knot as tight as anything Gordian laced up, leaving all of us eager for another episode. To be continued…


Strikers Get DellaRockered – The Young & the Rest of Us 3 - 0 Surgical Strikers


In the midst of NV1 and NV3 lies NV2. Here in the middle earth of Reno soccer, a tale too amazing to be fiction unfolded. The tattered remains of last year’s Wright Stuff have been transformed into the Young & the Rest of Us. With the vim and vigor of a bathroom cleaner the rejuvenated white stuff performed miraculously, not only winning their opening game but also keeping a cleansheet and securing the first bonus point in RSCSL history. All the painful memories of last season have been bleached into non-existence. Their opponents the Surgical Strikers were left scratching themselves, sorry scratching their heads. Out shooting the TYATROU 37 to 3 the Strikers must simply live up to their name by polishing up their finishing in the fashion of TYATROU’s Jose “Chicharito” Arteaga, who so ably displayed down the other end of the field how it  is done. These are the games of our seasons.


Milligan’s Mulligan – Cut-to-the-Chase 4 – 2 Real Studs


Getting right down to it, Cut-to-the-Chase nailed the Studs with a comfortable win. Notching up goals from all corners of the roster and Europe must be very encouraging for the Machiavellian minds behind this technicolor dark horse of the Reno coed soccer scene. Less encouraging are the aspirations of the goalie come center-forward Mike Milliganese. No longer “the Great Wall of Cork”, Mr. Milliganese has turned his attentions elsewhere i.e. the other end of the field. Though he did manage to find the ol’ onion bag in open play he left the scene of the crime when he blazed a spot-kick some 20 meters wide of the target, protesting that the goalie moved before he had picked his spot. Valiant resistance from the Studs saw them dry-walling the CTTC for long periods and must be surely encouraged by the fact that their heavy artillery, i.e. Ira “Iron” Cross and their national guardian of the galaxy i.e. Kate “plus 8” Heeran have yet to be deployed. Kate is very anxious for a new deployment.

Bhoys & Ghirls Come Out to Play – Bhoys & Ghirls 8 – 4 Chaingang

In the unchartered terrain of South Valleys in April the Bhoys & Ghirls came out to play, netting 8 against the much fancied Chaingang who apparently had misplaced the keys to their shackles. It started as a one-sided affair but as the score line ultimately reveals the “Gang” did eventually find the keys, suggesting that the rematch will be a very different cup-of-tea. Paying full attention to the new goal scoring protocol Scott “Cedric Larson” Morton netted 5 goals, serving notice that he will soon be on paternity leave.

Field Notes


North Valleys on Sky Vista. Go north on 395, turn right at Lemmon Valley exit, then first left on Sky Vista. Fields are about 1 mile on right.


South Valleys on Wedge Parkway.  Field being used is on lower fields closest to Wedge.


Eagle Canyon – take Pyramid north, turn left on Eagle Canyon as if going to Spanish Springs High School. Field is on the left right before Shaw Middle School.  Yes, this is way out there, but we only have three games there; no one will play there more than once.  Just try to avoid the old landmines from WW1. It will take about 15 minutes from Pyramid and McCarran.


Jerseys

If you have a jersey from a previous season – bring it. Give it to me or a captain.


The Forecast

Dry, clear, mid 60’s at kick off. Going will be firm.


Payment

If you have not paid, don’t forget. I am going to try to put in an appearance at every location this week… My Sicilian cousins are helping me line the fields….


Après-Soccer

We are a social league. We like to get together after the games (it certainly helps us get over games that maybe got a wee bit chippy). When we are playing at North Valleys, folk gravitate to Archies on North Virginia near UNR. Those playing in the south head to Lamppost Pizza near RC Willey. By the second half of the season we are all playing down south, so we all go to Lamppost.


I cannot make you have fun, but I want you to have fun. Our league members are a great group; get to know them.  Personally, I am always open to someone buying me a beer.


Keeping Score

A few changes are being made to discourage “running up the score” as a team or individually.


League Standings:

  1. 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, a bonus point will be awarded for a shut out (or as we say in Old Blighty, a cleansheet.)

  2. Any win of more than three goals will be recorded with a maximum 3 goal margin for goal differential purposes.

  3. The first tiebreaker will be head-to-head competition. (Yes, I hear the groans from the commonwealth caucus.)


Individual scorers

    An individual will be credited with up to three goals maximum in a game.
