MSPSP PREMIER 1 CHAMPIONS!!!
Congratulations to the MESA Blitz 99, MSPSP Premier 1 Champions for the Fall 2015 season!! The team went undefeated this season in the top division of the Michigan State Premier Program U17 girls, finishing with 8 wins and 1 draw, 23 goals forward and only 8 allowed. What an amazing and exciting season, right down to the last moment! Their goal since they began playing in premier at U13 was to advance to Premier 1, the highest division of the Michigan State Premier Program, but winning the division exceeded all expectations. This is the third MSPSP championship for the Blitz and their 9th league win overall. The team also had a tournament win and advanced to the State Cup round of 16 this season, Congratulations Blitz!
U16 MESA BLITZ ADVANCE TO 2015 STATE CUP QUARTER FINALS
The MESA Blitz finished the State Cup preliminary round with a 2-0-1 record. The girls won their first game against Carpathia 2-1 on goals by Jessica Riley(Marissa Woods) and Casey Allessie(Tori Tripp). Next they faced the Gators SC and defeated them 1-0 on a goal by Mackenzie Rappuhn(Casey Allessie). The final game of the preliminary round ended in a 2-2 tie against the MI Jaguars 99 Green MRL team on Sunday September 21st. The only way the Blitz could advance to the next round was a win or a tie in this final game and they definitely came to play! The Blitz took the early lead, scoring off a corner kick in the first half Olivia Kirk(Tori Tripp). Game was 1-0 until the Blitz gave up an unfortunate PK in the box near the end of the first half, to tie the game up. The teams went into halftime with a 1-1 tie, where it remained until midway through the second half when the Jags put a cross in behind the defense and knocked one in. The girls did not let the momentum swing and continued to win the ball in the back and the midfield to create offensive opportunites. That perserverance paid off when center mid Marissa Woods carried one through the midfield and placed a perfect shot just under the cross bar. The keeper got a hand on it, but couldn't keep it clear of the net. The defense was stellar all game and keeper Alyssa Burnash made 11 saves, despite the wet conditions, to keep the Blitz in the game. The Blitz will join 6 MRL teams and one ECNL team in the quarter finals, where they face off against the current number one team in the state. They left it all on the pitch on Sunday, what a great team accomplishment, Awesome Job Blitz!!!!!

Panthers Champs at St. Clair Shores Waterfront Invitational
The MESA Panthers were happy to share in the spotlight of the MESA Soccer Club's resounding success at the St. Clair Shores Waterfront Invitational. The Panthers claimed the U19 Championship by beating the LCSC Meteors MRL team from Livonia, MI 3 goals to 2 to take the prize. The Panthers found themselves down by a goal twice in the match at 1-0 and then in the second half at 2-1. The Panthers fought back to tie it, then took the lead at 3-2 with 10 minutes to go in the game. The Panthers out-possessed and out-shot the Meteors, but the Meteors with limited chances made the most of their opportunities by proficiently scoring 2 goals in just 5 shots. Panther, Alyssa Burke, put the team on her back and carried them to victory. Alyssa scored both of the come from behind tying goals that made the Panthers chance at winning possible. Her play in the game, and over the weekend, was "lights out" fantastic. The winning goal for the Panthers was scored by Katelyn Wilkowski and assisted by Jessie Magalski. The Panthers next challenge will be in Grand Rapids at the highly touted Crew Cup.

Panthers Win KISS Invitational
The MESA Panthers blazed their way through the competition at the KISS College Showcase in Kalamazoo. They were placed in the top division of the tournament against some of the most talented teams in the Midwest. The tournament started with a 2-0 victory over the Chicago Blast from Illinois. Game two saw the Panthers shutout Midwest United from Illinois 3-0. This victory got the team out of the preliminary pool and into the championship round against the other pool winners. This set up the match between the Panthers and last year’s winner at this event, the Windy City Pride 45 out of Chicago. The Pride came into the game ranked 5th in the state of Illinois. Their latest testament to their success was a semi-finalist showing at the WAGS tournament in Maryland, which is a Premier Elite event. The Panthers controlled the field, out-possessing and attacking the Pride from the start. Spectators and coaches witnessed a blistering pace, with dynamic play and great skill from both teams. The Panthers went into halftime with a 1-0 lead and put another one in the net in the second half to make it 2-0. The Pride’s best chance came on a failed free kick that hit the cross-bar, but this would be as close as they would get as the Panther’s limited the Pride’s scoring chances and continued to put offensive pressure throughout the match. Many say it was the most enjoyable and intense game by the Panthers they have seen in a long time.
In the final game, against the Palatine Celtics from Illinois, the Panthers had 5 different scorers out of the 6 goals that were scored. Goals from Leah Johnson, Jessie Malgalski, Katelyn Wilkowski, Allison Cialkoszewski and Alayna Hilgendorf, paved the way to a 6-1 victory and the championship. They also had considerable help from their two guest players, Claire Stoddard and Madeline Maxwell. Their roles solidified the lineup during the long grueling weekend.
The Panthers ended the tournament with an amazing 13 goals for and only 1 goal against for a goal differential of +12 in just 4 games. The offense was dominant and the defense incredible. This was the Panther’s 34th tournament championship and 354th victory.
This was the first tournament with some of the Panther’s new teammates from tryouts and they fit right in and performed exceptionally. Both Alayna Hilgendorf and Katelyn Wilkowski scored timely goals during the weekend. New keeper Kyra Harrison was spectacular in net with 3 shutouts in 4 games. We welcome them all to the Panther family.

MESA BLITZ FINALISTS AT THE CREW CUP & SHOWCASE
The U14 MESA Blitz were finalists May 19th at the Crew Cup & Showcase in Columbus, Ohio. This was their first Elite Showcase Tournament and they exceeded expectations with their performance on the field. All tournament games were full length 70 minute games, which provided the girls the opportunity to showcase one of their greatest skills; those late game goals. The girls went 2-0-1 in the tournament, defeating two Premier teams from Ohio (2-1 against the Crew Juniors Gold and 3-0 against the Lady Warrior White, a Premier 1 team in the Buckeye Premier League). Their only loss (3-2) came against an MRL team, currently ranked #3 in Wisconsin, the SC Waukesha 99 Blue-1 Bulldogs.

MESA Panthers Perfect in Lansing
The girls U17 MESA Panthers recently went undefeated at the Michigan Indoor College Showcase in Lansing. They had convincing victories over Livonia Soccer Club, TNT Dynamite 96 Red and TNT Dynamite 97 Red. The Panthers showcased their skills in front of over 17 different colleges that attended the event. This marks the end of the Panthers 10th season together with their 33rd tournament championship and their 350th win. With this end, it also marks the first time we will have to say goodbye to some of the Panthers due to graduation. Two players, Maddi Carper and Becca Turvene will be moving on to college next year. Maddi will be attending and playing soccer for Northwood University in the fall and Becca will be attending Oakland University. Both players are irreplaceable and will surely be missed; both for what they have contributed on and off the field during their time with the team. We wish them both the best. If you are interested in joining next year's U18 MESA Panthers showcase team, we will be looking for field players and a goalkeeper.
Contact Mark Burke at 810-240-8922 for more information.

MESA PANTHERS UNDEFEATED IN COLLEGE SHOWCASE TOURNAMENTS
Panthers Undefeated in Indy
The Panther were victorious in all three of their games at the Indianapolis College showcase. Their first game was against Midwest United from Illinois, where they took care of business with a 3-0 win. Their second game was against the Hoosiers FC Elite Wolves, who are the current State Cup Semi-finalists and ranked 4th in Indiana. The Panthers fell behind early 1-0, but stormed back with 3 unanswered goals. Their third game was against 7th ranked Panathinaikos from Missouri. The Panthers were down 2-0 shortly into the second half, but once again proved their resilience as they fired off three second half goals to claim victory 3-2. College coaches from Indiana, Ohio and Michigan were there to watch the Panthers over the two day tournament. The Panthers next event will be a showcase in Fort Wayne Indiana.
Panthers Stellar at Michigan FC Fall Showcase
The Panthers vaulted themselves to the top of their division once again. With 3 more victories in as many tries they went undefeated at the Michigan FC Fall College Showcase. Their first game was against a familiar foe the Bloomfield Force. The Panthers shutout the Force with a Friday night 2-0 victory.
In game two the Panthers put on a clinic against a very skilled Rockford team. The Panthers dominated in what many say was their finest performance of the year with a 5-0 whitewashing.
The third game had an international flair to it against an upstart team from Toronto. The Canadians got on the board first putting the Panthers down a goal in the early going. The Panthers fired right back tying the score then pulling ahead for good. The explosiveness of the Panthers were just too much as the final tally ended in a 6-3 score.
Coach Burke loved the girls speed of play and their great execution dazzled the college coaches and observers. With scoring from 6 different Panthers in the games it showed how well rounded the team is with so many having the ability to contribute to the offense. The defense was strong as well giving up just 3 goals the whole tourney. The Panthers ended the event with the highest goal differential of any team with a +10 rating.

Volunteer Coaches Needed!
MESA is a 100% volunteer organization. The number of teams and age divisions we offer each season is entirely based on our volunteer coaching staff. MESA caters to parents that enjoy coaching their child's recreational team, but want to coach in a more competive environment and give their child the opportunity to excel in the sport. If your child is ready to move to the next level, but you want to continue to be involved in coaching, MESA could be your solution. We develop coaches, players and teams in a supportive environment, where the goal is to develop players- not make a profit. Our coaches have advanced from recreational coaches to USSF E and D Licensed coaches, developed Premier, State Cup and MRL teams and many now earn extra income as paid trainers for MESA and other local soccer clubs. The edge our coaches give to the game and their players is their personal investment in the team. If you are interested in becoming a MESA coach, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Brian Riley at (810) 908-1112.
