VERDE PARK BEATS PREMIER, WINS 4TH STRAIGHT TITLE



2013 Verde Park Champs

Verde Park kept it close in the first half, then pulled away in the second in a 20-6 win over Premier.  Premier's Ronnie Loper's 50 yard scoriung run kept it close in the first half.  Premier appeared to make a move in the second half but penalties slowed the effot.  Roper had a big day on the ground but the Titans has a difficult time throwing.

The smaller Verde used a fierce pass rust and their usual big play offense to keep the game in hand.  Their balanced attack, more then 100 yard on the air ground and in the air proved to be the difference maker.  Their last scoring drive alone put the game away as the team mixed the passing and running game in a 70 yard scoring drive.

Verde Park had also won it's last 30 games, unbeated in their last 35.

VERDE BEATS WESTLAND, STREAK INTACT

  

2013 Westland vs Verde I

Sergio Torres, two time player of the year, threw two touchdown passes and intercepted two passes as Verde Park win a defensive duel.

Westland threated several times early the first after a William Brown interception. But the offense stalled at the 2 yard line. Westland made 4 trips to the Verde red-zone only to be turned away, a key point in Verde's win. Alvin Couch and Cresenio Corrales forced another 3 and out by sacking Torres two time in a row. The two combined for 5 sacks. Westland totaled 7.

Verde's Defense was equal to the task with 11 sacks as Angel Sandoval, Isidro Villela and Oscar Nadera sacked Westland quarterbacks 3 times each.

Verde's ground game put up its usual 100 yard performance but was for the most part contained and prevented from the big plays that is a team trademark.

Westland moved the ball well but turnovers proved to be the culprit despite 3 great catches by Trevon Barr. Unfortunately, the Verde pass rush kept Wesland QB's from being able to reach him often.

Yvette Marcias provided most of Verde's yardage by air, fisrt on a 7 yard touchdown pass and again on a 40 yard strike that led to another Verde score and putting the game out of reach

TUESDAY'S GAMES

GIRLS

Westland vs Verde Park:  Both teams beat premier but Verde had the tougher time leading only 4-0 at the half.  Westland had more of a group effort with 5 players scoring, all contributing.  Verde, defending champs, still runs with a small but effective roster.  The winner may the top seed for January's Holiday Tournament.

BOYS

Westland vs Verde Park: Westland lost big to Premier last week and Verde beat Premier.  Westland's in for along night unless they show some improvement on fundamentals.  Verde had a good leade on Premier but hung on for the win. a dozen blown layups didn't help.

 

THURSDAY'S GAMES

GIRLS

Premier vs Westland: Westland won by 12 in their first meeting.  Premier needs this one.

BOYS

 Premier vs Westland: Premier simply out hustled Westland, but the Scorpions have the athletes to prevent this from happening again.  All depends on which Premier team shows up.  Will it be the team that looked like the team to beat opening night, or the one's who lost to THE team to beat Thursday nite, that being Verde Park..

Two plays.  In a game that was mostly a defensive struggle and a test of wills between two ground games, a deep pass into blown coverage and a timely interception that set up another scoring play were all the difference in another championship battle between the leagues most successful football programs.  Late in the first half, Sergio Torres threw a 30 yard pass to the leagues all-time receiver, Jose' Sandoval setting up a 5 yard run by Jonathan Montoya.

Verde Park took advantage of turnovers (4 interceptions, two returned for touchdowns) and miscues in a big win over Westland.  Westland played verde tough last week at home in the ditch but struggled on the road.

FOOTBALL ROUNDUP
2012 Verde vs Westland I
Westland's win at Hamilton may setup a rematch

WESTLAND BEATS HERMOSA, PRESSES VERDE PARK

WESTLAND 26, HERMOSA PARK 0

Coach Diana Martin returns to central Phoenix where her teaching Career began at Hamilton elementary school.  Once a teacher at Success school, she taught (along with Coach Mo and Westland teacher Mr Nay) in the same areas where reletives and freinds of Hermosa/Lindo Park players grew up and went to school.  The same goes for the Verde Players which incuded the bulk of her first students. 

And it was quite the Homecoming.

Westland had it's best scoring output in years in a win vs Hermosa Park at Hamilton School.  The win helped to position the scorpions in the middle of the pack & sets up a possible playoff matchup against Maya.

VERDE PARK 8, WESTLAND 0

Verde Park escapes "The Ditch" with it's three year winning streak alive versus a much improved Westland team.  Teams tend to play Verde park close at home but time and again they seem to come out with wins.  The playoffs & championships will be played at hamilton school this year so this could prove interesting.

MAYA GETS IT TOGETHER IN WIN OVER WESTLAND

MAYA 24, WESTLAND 0

Coach Long, Maya's new football Coach had big shoes to fill and a new philosophy to sell to his players.  Seems like they are buying into it.  At least the defense has.  Westland stopped Maya at home and held them to a tie earlier this season behind two key early interceptions.  Maya returned the favor by returining two pick 6's early in the first half in a win in the ditch, Westland's home field.  A big win for Maya in a shortened season as they face Hermosa in an effort to prep for the playoffs.  Maya also sees Hermosa, but like Maya has done earlier this seaon, they close with games vs Hermosa and Verde.

VERDE STILL UNBEATED, WEARS DOWN MAYA
2012 FB Verde int vs Maya II

VERDE PARK 21, MAYA 0

Maya and Verde Park played to a virtual standoff until the turnover monster undermined Maya's efforts.  A Maya interception during Verde's opening possesion led to a drive that stalled in the red zone.  That was it until the last 4 minutes of the first half.  Verde intercepted a Jaguar pass for a pick 6 and a 7-0 lead at the half.

In the second half another interception led to a Verde drive that ended in a touchdown pass.  From that point on it was all Verde.  Maya was able to move the ball at times but the turnovers took a toll.

THURSDAY'S MATCHUP

MAYA at WESTLAND

These two played earlier this season and tied.  With a busy week ahead (next week Westland plays Hermosa on Tuesday, Verde Thursday) Westland needs a win.  One of the leagues traditional contendersm and loaded with talent, Maya just needs a win period.

THIS WEEK'S MATCHUPS

TUESDAY, 9 OCTOBER

MAYA at WESTLAND

It's rare but Westland's first two games are against the same opponent.  A pissed off Maya team that just let a win at Verde Park slip away with seconds left.   Maya's offense controlled most of the temo and the two quarterback system seems to work for them.  Theay also had a few go getters at wide receiver and a relentless defense. Westland took advantage of tunrovers in a game opening tie the last time these to met.  Not bad as it was on the orad and now they get the Jaguars in "The Ditch".  Westland was patient and took advantage of mistakes when these tow last met.

 

 VERDE PARK at HERMOSA PARK (Art Hamilton School Field Of Dreams)

 Verde's 10 year home winning streak almost came to an end but a timeley interception by last season's player of the year save them from defeat.  Vderde has won the last 3 titles and has been in the last 4.  With the exception of a few players, this looks like a new Verde team, but most of the roster grew up in Coach Crossin's system.  Hermosa showed flashes of promise last year, but that was in basketball.  The should have athletes but not much is known about this team at this time but park director Rob Sells always has talent.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL ROUNDUP



2012 FB Rodney huddle v Maya 1
And the beat goes on....Verde keeps home streak intact

WESTLAND & MAYA TIE

In a well fought battle, turnovers, of course, figured in the out come.  Maya visited the Red Zone multiple times only to be turned away by the Scorpion defense.  Westland's Kyle Jones & Dillon Walker both had timely interseptions.  The pair also hooked up on a scoring pass play.

VERDE PARK OVERCOMES, BEATS MAYA

A 20 yards interception retun with 20 seconds left in the game prevented the unthinkable.  A Verde Park home loss.  Maya appeared to hove the ball well and had the game in hand until the costly turnover.

TEAM HOPE'S GAMES FORFEITED - RULES VIOLATIONS

Team Murphy's unbeated season was stricken fromt he record for using illegal players.  All wins were reversed and the team excluded from post season play.

 After an investigation proved Hope had players who were already on a team roster elsewhere, the decision was made.  Sad was that most of the team played together over the summer and was good enough to contend on it's own merit.

From Ann Meyers, President Of The Mercury!

I recently met legendary basketball player Ann Meyers Drysdale.  Google her & look her up yourself, one of the all time greats and in my opinion, put womens basketball on the forefront in the 70s/80s. 

Anyway, reading below, it looks like our girls have something to look forward to this season & in the future!

Mo, was a pleasure to meet you yesterday at the Rotary Wine Tasting Event.  I’d first like to thank you for the work you do for the young ones in the community.  Listening to all the accomplishments of both the boys and girls, because of their involvement with Field of Dreams, is pretty impressive and heartwarming.  Thank you for all you do Mo, and all the other volunteers that make the Field of Dreams and happiness come through for the children.

I am hoping that Field of Dreams and the Phoenix Mercury can become more involved with each other as the summer approaches.  I’m sure we can bounce ideas off each other and help each other out.  We certainly feel that it would be a terrific fit between the two organizations.  I am more than happy to come out and support what you’re doing Mo, just need to set up some times and dates. 

I know we can make something happen in a positive way for both the Field of Dreams (especially for your young girls) and for the Phoenix Mercury.

Thanks again Mo and it was a pleasure to meet you.  I look forward to working with you and hearing from you in the near future.

 

Annie Meyers Drysdale (Phoenix Mercury)

Tue 1/24/12 6pm PREMIER (G) vs. MAYA (G)

Maya gave Verde park a run for a short period and refused to go away and eventually came away with a win.  Tianda Edison's free throws put the game away in the final seconds.  Premier is improving but scoring seems to be the obvious issue and what better time to change that than tonite.

Tue 1/24/12 7pm VERDE PARK (G) vs. MURPHY-HOPE

Verde is coming off a tough loss and an emotional week, but it's time to bounce back.  And doing that would be against first place Team Hope.  This would be the first time these two have matched up this season.  Hope is unbeaten as no one has come close.  Verde is out to prove last week was a fluke and they are Queens of the Hill.  This should be a good one.

 THURSDAY

BOYS

Thu 1/26/12 6pm Premier JV vs. Maya

With Hermosa out, opportunities abound for Premier's JV team as they move up to varsity B status against rival Maya.  Two week's ago Maya beat Premier's varsity and last week came within a 3 pointer of tying or beating #1 Verde Park.

Thu 1/26/12 7pm Verde Park vs. Premier

Premier has improved weekly.  Two tech's may have cost them two wins but they did get it togethe rin a win over Hermosa in what would eventually be Hermosa's last night in the league.  Josh Reyes, Hickam Lakhdar, KeAndre Williams and Xavier YBarra have been steady players for The Titans.  Verde has been smooth as ever and recently dodged a comback attempt vs Maya.    Coach Rodney Crossin's system of bringing up players through the ranks keep s a steady flow of talent in hand.  The latest leaders included pivot man Brandon beck, Mario Lopez, Jose Fonseca and Serio Torres.  Beck had 13 in last week's win.

HOPE/MURPHY VS PREMIER

Premier had a rough week last week and it wont get easier as the Murphy based Hope Murphy squad led by Coach Simpson is well prepared.  The Lady Doves completed a successful club season just over a month ago and should be well aqaunted with ech other as a team. 

 

THURSDAY

BOYS

HERMOSA PARK VS PREMIER

Both suffered tough losses last weeek as they were leading at critical points and made critical error in the end.  Premier had their game in hand vs Maya, but a technical foul proved costly in a game settled on the free throw line.  Kendae Williams and Andrew Parra carried most of the load for Premier with Josh Reyes and kelvin Anderson providing most of the support.  Hermosa Park took Verde into overtime but fell short against their city rival.  Fast & athletic, Hermosa had a great running game but appreared to run out of gas in the extra period.
