Marauders sweep Crusaders


© St. Petersburg Times, published January 14, 2001

CLEARWATER -- Clearwater Central Catholic dominated every phase of the game en route to a 5-0 win over Tampa Catholic.

The game was played almost exclusively in the Crusaders' zone as the Marauders outshot the Crusaders 36-1.

So what made the once highly touted rivalry so one-sided Saturday?

"(The Crusaders) are a young team," CCC coach Tom Typrowicz said. "They have good fundamentals, and they pass and make good touches. But I think experience caught up to them. We have a very experienced team."

Defensively, Tampa Catholic (12-3-3) could not stop the Marauders' wingers. On one side, Apryl Wall outran defenders and beat them to the box for open shots.

On the other side, Jessica Hallgren outmaneuvered and outmuscled defenders, creating open shots in the box.

CCC (17-1) scored 11 minutes into the game when Kari Weniger passed to a streaking Wall. Her shot was saved by Ali Doyle, but the ball came loose on the rebound. A scrum in front of the net ensued, and Wall, the smallest player on the field, emerged to put the ball into the net. With less than three minutes remaining in the half, Hallgren left the game after being fouled hard, setting up a free kick 5 yards outside of the box.

Carly Goldich took the kick and led Jasmine Johnson perfectly to the net. Johnson booted it in for her first goal of the season and a 2-0 halftime lead. Four minutes into the second half, Hallgren deked one defender down the right sideline and deked another in the box. She got Doyle to commit then passed to a wide-open Jill Blatti, who put the ball into the net.

Sarah Sheehan assisted Goldich on the fourth goal, and Holly Wernberg set up Liz Simmons for the fifth goal.

"We had an outstanding effort from our defense and forwards," Typrowicz said.

"We had solid defensive pressure on their forwards all game, and we had great hustle all around."
