Wow! What a tournament. The Radnor Rumble won three games and tied one enroute to the Delco Columbus Day Weekend U-11 National Division title.

In game one, Radnor shutout division opponent, Rosetree, 2-0. The game was tied 0-0 at halftime as both teams could not convert on scoring opportunities. In the second half, a handball in the box earned the Rumble a penalty kick and Jeff Wellenbach's low liner took advantage and gave Radnor a 1-0 lead. Brooks Bentz added an insurance goal on a nice pass from Jon Mahady and Mark Ducceschi. Lou Sanet had seven saves enroute to his second shutout of the season.

Game two goes down in history as the greatest Rumble comeback ever. Trailing 4-0 midway through the first half, the Rumble made a change moving Garrett Fitzgerald from the back line to the front line. Fitzgerald sparked the team with two goals towards the end of the first half cutting the deficit to 4-2. Taylor Sims scored the first goal and Rodrigo Nogales the second.

In the second half, co-player of the game, Steve Mazanek, scored twice to knot the game up at 4-4, the game tieing goal on a beautiful feed from the right side from Bob Fischer. Garrett Fitzgerald put the momentum clearly on the Rumble's side when he scored on a pass from Mark Ducceschi and Mazanek. Final score: Rumble - 5 Springfield - 4 in a game that will be televised all across the township on Channel 16.

Game three was a warmup for the eventual championship contest as the Rumble took on Brandywine. Brooks Bentz and Jeff Wellenbach manned the goals and were lonelier than the Maytag repairman as Radnor notched only a single save all morning enroute to a 6-0 handling of Brandywine. Lou Sanet and Jon Mahady had two goals each in the shutout victory.

Game four was a classic struggle between two outstanding teams. The Rumble had already faced TE earlier this season and had been defeated 3-1 in an early season tournament. But, this time the Rumble was at full strength and had revenge on their minds. Both teams fought each other like two heavyweight champions and the end result was a scoreless tie. Lou Sanet notched the Rumble's third shutout of the four game tournament and was assisted by the strong defense of Ryan Kraus, Charles Smith, Tommy Puckette, Jeff Wellenbach, and Garrett Fitzgerald.

The Rumble is now unbeaten in its last six games and ready to rumble back into Delco league play.

Congratulations Rumble on your first championship of the season!

Harrisburg -- The Radnor Rumble won three games enroute to a berth in the championship game at the Capital Area Soccer Association U-11 tournament held Labor Day Weekend in suburban Harrisburg. The effort earned the Radnor lads a beautiful silver trophy to add to the collection of hardware.

Game one saw the Rumble taking on Lancaster County entry, Manheim. Manheim struck first to take the lead on a shot that inched just inside the near post. The Rumble quickly tied it up on Mark Ducceschi's near impossible angle shot from the right side with Taylor Sims and Craig Weingarten posting assists. Just before the half, Steve Mazanek was the beneficiary of a bad pass by Manheim's defense and Mazanek took advantage with a quick shot into the upper half of the Manheim goal. Radnor led 3-1 in the second half as Ducceschi this time fed a streaking Sims in front of the net. And, the fourth Radnor goal was scored on a booming shot by the tenacious Charles Smith on a feed from Sims. Final score: Radnor -4 Manheim - 2.

Game two saw Radnor taking on the host team from the Central Dauphin school district -- Capital Area. Ducceschi once again opened the scoring on another impossible angle shot on feeds from Garrett Fitzgerald and Brooks Bentz. Bentz scored Radnor's second goal when he picked off a goal kick, saw an opening up the middle, and drove a 40 foot shot past the goalkeeper giving Radnor a 2-nil halftime lead. Radnor would stretch it to 4-0 with goal #3 coming from Ducceschi on feeds from Bob Fischer and goalkeeper Louis Sanet. Bentz fed Fischer for goal #4. After a Capital Area goal, Radnor scored two more as Ducceschi and Drew Mohoric asssisted Sims and Riley Baver and Mazanek assisted Ducceschi. Final score: Radnor - 6 Capital Area - 1.

The semifinal matchup pitted Radnor against an elite team of all-stars, the Avalanche, made up from several towns in the Harrisburg area and coached by a professional Harrisburg Heat and Hershey Wildcats player. Mark Ducceschi was once again the man for Radnor. His goal on a feed from Smith and Tommy Puckette gave Radnor the 1-0 halftime lead. Smith added his second goal of the tournament in the second half to give Radnor a 2-0 lead. The Avalanche broke the shutout on a bad bounce off the pitch that went over the steady and able hands of goalkeeper Louis Sanet. Final score: Radnor -2 Avalanche - 1.

The championship match was a seesaw affair that saw Hempfield take the lead, only to have Radnor tie it back up on Mazanek's goal assisted by Smith. Another Hempfield goal and Hempfield left the stifling turf with a 2-1 halftime lead. Radnor battled back as Garrett Fitzgerald tied it up on an assist from Ducceschi. But, after a third Hempfield goal, the Radnor lads simply ran out of time.

A great effort by the entire team and hats off to the guest players who did a fantastic job. Other strong performances were turned in by goalkeeper Louis Sanet making his first tournament appearance for the Rumble and Ryan Kraus who played a solid left defense all four games.

The Rumble now begins preparations for the regular season Delco League play.

Welcome to an all new feature for the Radnor Rumble -- The Rumble Rumble web site. Check here for all the latest rumbles from the Radnor Rumble U 11 soccer team.

Rumble Set To Make Run at Playoffs
The Radnor Rumble U-12 team is preparing to make a run at the Delco Soccer League playoffs in the 2001 season.

Some tough luck last year saw the Rumble post a disappointing 4-4-2 league record and a 10-8-2 overall log. The Rumble did, however, take a runner-up trophy in the Capital Area Soccer Labor Day tournament and were the champions of the Delco Columbus Day soccer tournament with a 0-0 tie with rival TE in the final contest.

The Rumble continued to hone its skills in the winter season as it competed in the Rocket Sports League and also in several tournaments. It posted a 21-7-4 league record and earned a championship in the first league session and runner up medal in session two.

All members of the 2000 squad are returning plus two new additions. Eric Shaw is a speedy left footed striker acquired as a free agent from the neighboring TE program. Steve Amanullah is a versatile and talented midfielder who just moved to town recently. These two players will surely add more scoring punch and depth to the club.

Shaw is a burner on the left side and Mark Ducceschi has wheels on the right side of the offense. These two speedsters are sure to strike fear in the hearts of opposing defenders. All-around star Jeff Wellenbach is also back. The versatile Wellenbach scored eight goals last fall and hopes to improve on that total this year. Last year's leading scorer, Steve Mazanek is also back and will be counted on for his steady and heady midfield play. Charles Smith anchors a rugged defense that will surely deny many opposing forces.

Also returning is Rodrigo Nogales who spent much of the summer sharpening his skills against high school level competition. Early reports show Nogales as one of the star players in the league.

Lou Sanet is back as goaltender and will try to improve on his 9-4-3 record last year. When not playing defense, Brooks Bentz will back him up in the nets.

The club is coached by Jason Kirkwood and assisted by Dave Sims. Joe Ducceschi is team manager. Bob Bentz is webmaster and scorekeeper.

"The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can't do." - Dennis Waitley
