Well, North Park didn't make it. I'm extremely disappointed, but I have no complaints. The Vikings knew what they needed to do, which was to win on Saturday and avoid the bubble, and in spite of dominating the match against Carthage they didn't get it accomplished. It is what it is. NPU's SoS just wasn't high enough to get the Vikings on firm ground for a Pool C.

Farewell, and a big thank-you for both their hard work and for the excellence and enjoyment that they brought to the pitch for Vikings fans, to graduating seniors Ricky Pimentel, Jason Gonzalez, Kyle Robson, Luke Egeler, and Kyle Orr, and to junior Gustav "Big Goose" Leander, who is graduating a year early and probably won't be back next season. As for the rest of the Vikings, I'm sure that the bitter taste left in their mouths from today will spur them on to be that much better next season. NPU's talent level is immense, and great things await the Vikings in 2019 if they're willing to work hard enough to earn it.

Great sportsmanship Greg.  +k

The league office has announced the 2018 All-CCIW team. The Player of the Year award has now been split into offensive and defensive awards (same goes for women's soccer), which I guess makes sense when you consider that the Player of the Week award is already split that way. So congratulations to NPU's sophomore Peder Olsen and senior Ricky Pimentel for winning the first OPOY and DPOY awards that the league has handed out. Congrats as well to freshman Deni Cresto of North Park, who followed Olsen as the second Viking in a row to win the Newcomer of the Year award, and to Olsen, Pimentel, Cresto, and freshman Joachim Hoff for being named to the All-CCIW first team and to fellow Vikings junior Gustav Leander and sophomores Shatil Khoury and Erik Lundeen for being named to the All-CCIW second team.

It's an interesting All-CCIW lineup. Both of Augie's representatives are internationals, as is Carroll's lone rep, so there are eight internationals among the 24 members of the All-CCIW team. Only 11 of the 24 are from Illinois.

Most importantly, only six are seniors (two from Carthage, one apiece from North Park, Wheaton, North Central, and Illinois Wesleyan) -- which means that we can hope for a stronger league next season.

Sweet....thanks for posting it.

Kid clearly was trying to score....wonder if that's something he practiced and how many times in a hundred he could come close to pulling that off.

That is a great goal but even more impressive that the Vikings let them use the facility for High School Soccer State Championships. That is the type of stuff that can help the sport of Soccer grow more than people think even though I know Soccer in Minnesota is big especially with the new MLS team and all but still kudos to the Vikings and Ownership. The Patriots/Krafts would never even think of doing that for Soccer even though they host every single High-School Football Bowl game and televise it.

Two thoughts:  (i) unfortunately, MR is probably correct about the Patriots/Krafts, even though they own the NE Revolution and allow the Academy teams to play in the stadium; and (ii) check out this opening kickoff goal by Will Van Noppen (formerly of LaSalle Academy in Providence) from 2010 while a sophomore at Clark University in Worcester against Wheaton College (Mass.):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ScYl0Bf3S8

I remember that Van Noppen goal making the rounds when it happened. Pretty nuts.

As for the MN state final goal, a few commenters on the page stated that the goal shouldn't have been allowed because two players were in the opposing half when the ball was kicked from the kickoff. A technicality and doesn't take away from the quality of the strike nor do I think it would have made it easier to save, but still, interesting nonetheless.
He's our center half, he's our number four, watch him defend, and we watch him score, he'll pass the ball, calm as you like, he's Virgil van Dijk, he's Virgil van Dijk.

North Central announced today that they have “parted ways” with Coach Klosterman.

That's a shame. Matt Klosterman was a solid and competent coach who took a North Central program that had degenerated into a laughingstock that had gone through four head coaches in seven seasons and had finished 0-20-0 the season before his arrival, and made them competitive, as the Cards appeared in three of the last four CCIW tourneys.

Not quite sure I understand this one, especially with what you’ve noted above.  Stay tuned.  New coach expected by February.

Is it true that the MIAC qualified four teams...while the committee neglected the CCIW?
