Varsity and FS win big on last league games!
MHS Varsity went into the last league game of the season with a 2-1-4 record so they needed to win the last game of the season against Camarillo in order to advance to CIF playoffs. Camarillo scored first which put a bit of a cloud on the Musketeers chances, but a few minutes before the end of regulation time a great header from Senior Dane Todd put it in the back of the net which took the game into overtime. After a hard fought battle for most of the two overtime periods, it looked like the game was going to end in a tie which would've taken the Musketeers out of the playoffs, but in the final play of the game with 30 seconds left in double overtime Senior David Jimenez took a shot which was deflected off the side bar and finally put in goal by Sophomore Isaac Hurtado right before the final whistle.
The FS team went into the league final game vs. Camarillo with a 5-1-1 record tied with their adversary which had the exact same record so the outcome of this game would determine who was league champions. The first half of the game was somewhat evenly matched with both sides attacking and Camarillo maintaining slightly higher posession. The Musketeers picked up the pace quite a bit in the second half and outpaced Camarillo in all categories including posession, shots on goal, etc. and put 3 in Camarillo's goal. A super save of a PK by keeper Anthony Sassano guaranteed the shutout and final 3-0 win for the league champions with 6-1-1 league and 15-2-1 (W-D-L) overall record!
Camarillo JV scored 3 quick goals against MHS by halftime. But the Musketeers JV held their own throughout the second half and kept the second half scoreless. An excellent PK save by the Musketeers reserve keeper Braden contributed to their moral and had them work extra hard during the second half to keep Camarillo from scoring.
Froshsoph win, JV tie, Varsity tied until last minute vs. Royal!
In the second round of games of MHS vs. Royal, the musketeers fared better this time around. The only loss of the season so far by FS was to Royal. But this time around the Musketeers came back with a vengence and put one in the goal in the first 10 minutes. The rest of the match was a hard fought battle by both teams to change the result but neither side scored again. This leaves MHS FS with a 12-2-1 (W-D-L) record!! JV also came back from a loss first time around against Royal and tied the game 0-0. Varsity was tied until last minute of double overtime but Royal opened up the Musketeers net to a disappointing 0-1 loss while playing a man down for the last 20 minutes. All teams face Oak Park at home on Wednesday February 3rd.
Clean sweep vs. Camarillo!
FS 3-0, JV 2-0, Varsity 2-0! Congrats to all three teams! Defense rules!!
No goals vs. Simi, Camarillo ahead!
An exciting game between the Moorpark Musketeers and a strong Simi side (now 8-2-2) ended in 0-0 tie. With the exception of the goals, this game had a lot to offer though.
There were opportunities on both sides in the first half with the clearest one falling to Moorpark right before half time. Moorpark captain Dane Todd didn't seem to make great contact with the ball when he popped up in front of the Simi goal with just the keeper to beat.
The Musketeers looked improved in the second half and were able to shut out a dangerous looking Pioneer attack with only 10 men for parts of the second half and both 10-minute OT periods. Carson Goodwin received a questionable second yellow for his second foul in an aggressive encounter.
Simi came close to grabbing a winner from a long distance effort that hit the top of the Musketeer crossbar in the first "Golden Goal" OT period. Moorpark again came closest though when the 10-men side got in behind the Simi backline on a counter attack with no time left on the clock. Dane Todd's wide open 1-on-1 with the Simi goalie was the last action of the first OT period. Unfortunately, his low effort had the keeper beat but also went just inches wide. Late in the second OT period the whole Moorpark side of the stadium was screaming for a penalty after David Valencia was fouled on top of the box. Juan Garcia stepped up and hit what seemed like the exact same spot of the crossbar that Simi hit earlier. And so it remained 0-0 and the points were shared on a beautiful foggy night in Moorpark.
Next, MHS will be hosted by Camarillo on Friday night. The Scorpions should be confident after taking a point from Royal after being down 2-0 at halftime on Wednesday night. Should be another exciting night of soccer.
Comment from Coach Nikhil:
"Unfortunately, so far this season in league our home games have been a story of missed opportunities a little bit. Simi had some good chances to score as well, but we feel we had the better looks at crucial times in the game. We're disappointed with the finishing at home so far, but we can definitely build on the team's reaction to the red card as well as the shutout defensively against a very good team."
1-1 After Two. Simi on Wednesday.
The Musketeers Varsity Soccer Boys started their season with mixed results.
In the season opener at home against 4-time-consecutive Coastal Canyon League Champs Royal, an average first half by the hosts was the difference in an exciting encounter in Moorpark. Royal was leading 2-0 at half time before a great second half display by the Musketeers lead to a well deserved 2-2 tie late in the game through goals by Juan Garcia off of a beautiful direct free kick and David Jimenez. Moorpark had another great opportunity to complete the comeback, but Angel Garcia just missed the far corner of the Royal goal by inches after a great combination and through ball by David Jimenez left him 1-on-1 with Royal goalkeeper.
That was punished brutally by Royal. An unsuccessful pass back attempt from a MHS center back to his keeper bounced in front of the lone Royal Forward who reacted well and left Manny Martinez in goal no chance on a wide open 1-on-1. That was the only real goal scoring opportunity for Royal in the second half with just injury time left on the clock.
Comments from first year head coach, Nikhil Erlebach-Chanda:
"A poor first half defensively cost us this game, not the mistake at the end. The second half was great and the boys deserved to go to OT at least, but that's not how this game works. You have to finish what you create, but also defend well against good teams or you can get punished. Royal was efficient with the opportunities we gave them and took advantage like a Championship team does."
On Friday night the Musketeers came back to Moorpark with a convincing 3-0 in the bags. MHS went up 1-0 midway through the first half off of another Juan Garcia free kick, which helped his team settle in away from home. David Valencia made it 2-0 early in the second half with a beautiful low shot in the far corner through traffic. After that the boys played it confidently and Angel Garcia was able to get his first of the season finishing confidently on a 1-on-1 with the OPHS keeper.
Coach Erlebach-Chanda's comments:
"Good win away after a tough late loss in the season opener at home. It was very physical and aggressive towards the end, but I thought the boys did well keeping their cool and getting the job done on both sides of the ball today. I'm especially pleased with the shutout."
The MHS Frosh & JV teams also won their second league games at OPHS 2-1 & 4-0 after coming up short against Royal in their season openers.
On Wednesday night the Musketeers will host Simi Valley HS at 6:45 p.m. The Pioneers also started their season 1-1 with a win against OPHS and a loss to Royal. This should be another close and exciting game.
Frosh will play at 3:30 p.m. and JV at 5:00 p.m..
