Class AAAA Upper State championship

The end of the line for Fort Mill

Fort Mill goes down to the wire but loses a heartbreaker

- bbyers@heraldonline.com

FORT MILL -- “Red card” is probably the last phrase a soccer coach wants to hear.  It means a player is ejected and must sit out the next game unless a review shows it should be overturned. But overtime has to be a close second. That's just what No. 3 Fort Mill and No. 2 Mauldin got on Monday night in their standoff for the Class AAAA girls Upper State championship at Fort Mill.

Mauldin scored in both 10-minute overtimes and came away with a 3-1 comeback win over the Lady Yellow Jackets.“This is a sad way to end our season,” said Sara Borer, a backup forward and the only Fort Mill senior. “The girls have everyone back except for me and should make a run at the state championship next year. I hate I won't be part of it, but I'll be here pulling for them.” For a while it looked like Fort Mill's first-half goal might hold up. The first 40 minutes was a defensive standoff, with shots hard to come by for Fort Mill not quite as hard for Mauldin. The Lady Mavericks spent the majority of the half on Fort Mill's half of the field and fired several shots that lacked enough steam to get past Lady Jackets' goalie Alexis McLaine. At the 21:35 mark, Fort Mill (17-6-1) got the chance it had been waiting for, but Ashton Wolfe was cut off on a breakaway when Mauldin stole the ball. Mauldin (18-2) got off a pair of shots over the next three minutes, but McLaine was in position and made the stops. The silence stopped at the 33:30 mark. Fort Mill all-state player Taylor Parker took an assist from Jessica Tooley and lifted a floater over head of Mauldin goalie Morgan Hert. The ball settled into the right corner of the net, giving the Lady Jackets a 1-0 lead that held up until the half. It was one of three shots on goal all night for the Lady Yellow Jackets. But the half ended tough for Fort Mill.

Parker went down hard near midfield at the 36:32 mark after what appeared to be a shove from behind. She was attended to by Johnson and Fort Mill athletics trainer Ben Merritt. Parker got up on her own, but limped off the field between Johnson and Merritt. She was back when the second half started, but went down on her own less than three minutes in and headed straight to the metal trainers table for attention. She was on and off the field the rest of the game. “It really hurts when your top player gets hurt and is not at 100 percent,” Fort Mill coach Vic Johnson said. “We count heavily on her to control the ball and score. It might have been different if she hadn't got hurt. “But we made around five mistakes in the back and let them score. Five in 100 minutes are not that bad, but against a team like Mauldin, you can't afford any mistakes.”

Mauldin finally struck back with less than 15 minutes to play in regulation. At the 64:42 mark, Lady Mavericks all-stater Sarah Schaidle's shot from right of the goal barely missed the left post. Taylor, who was on the sideline, immediately went back into the game. Just over a minute later, Schaidle scored from in front of the goal and tied the game at 1-1. Neither defense gave the rest of the way, and regulation ended same as the game started — dead even.

Mauldin struck first, getting a goal from Allison Nelson off a direct kick with a minute remaining in the first overtime. Nelson kicked the ball just over McLaine's outstretched hands from 21 yards out. That wasn't the end. With 7:45 left in the second OT, Nelson slid the ball past McLaine again, this time on a penalty kick from inside the box for a 3-1 lead. So it's back to the state championship for Mauldin, to play Wando at Columbia's Memorial Stadium. Wando beat Mauldin in last year's championship game.

“This is so exciting for all of us,” Nelson said. “We were down late, but we knew we could come back and win. We had to get back to the state. “We were pulling for Wando to beat West Ashley tonight. A rematch is all we've talked about all day long.”


First half  FM — Taylor Parker, 33:30, Jessica Tooley assist

Second half M — Sarah Schaidle, 65:43

First overtime  M — Allison Nelson, 89:00, direct kick

Second overtime  M — Nelson, 92:15, penalty kick

Shots on goal — Fort Mill 3, Mauldin 11

Goalies — Fort Mill: Alexis McLaine (8 saves); Mauldin: Morgan Hert (2 saves).

Records: Fort Mill 17-6-1; Mauldin 18-2




Mavs set for state title rematch with Wando
By Bob Castello Staff Writer bcastell@greenvillenews.com • May 20, 2009

Mauldin girls soccer coach Kevin Czar saw this coming.

No, not the Region 2-AAAA championship, though that was in the plan. And not the Upper State title, though that, too, was in the plan.

What Czar saw in his Mavericks was the desire to compete.

“They don't have any back-down in them,” he said. “They definitely don't know how to quit. That's been true all year. They're not satisfied with just doing something average.

“Even before the season they were committed. We have preseason conditioning, and I can't make that mandatory. And it was amazing the turnout you get with these girls, even when it's not mandatory.

They were always showing up and pushing each other. That goes from the young girls all the way up to the senior leadership. I think you can attribute most of it to the senior leadership.”

That attitude was evident Monday night, when Mauldin battled Fort Mill through two overtimes in the Upper State championship match. Senior Allison Nelson scored once in each overtime to give Mauldin a 3-1 victory.

The Mavericks (18-2) will play Wando (21-0-2) in the state championship match Friday at 5 p.m. at Memorial Stadium in Columbia. It will be a rematch of last year's state final, which Wando won 2-1.

“Our first goal was to win the region,” said Czar, whose team did so with a 10-0 league record, including two victories against rival Dorman. “This group of seniors, with Sarah (Schaidle), and Brooke (Nemecek) and Curren (Smith) and them, that was my first group as a coach. That was one thing they said they wanted to do was to win the region. Of course, also on that list at the beginning of the year was to be playing in Columbia on May 22.

“We've gotten back there. Now it's time to go do what we didn't do last year.”
