Aces, Tigers 'friendly' for now

MOUNT CARMEL — It was just a friendly between Mount Carmel and Princeton Tuesday, a pre-season exhibition soccer game designed as a fundraiser for the Golden Aces travel expenses for the season ahead.
Mt. Carmel looked impressive at times in a 4-0 victory before a large crowd at the Wabash Valley College field.
The next time these two rivals meet, in a Big 8 Conference matchup Oct. 1 at WVC, it won’t be so friendly. The game will count in the league standings.
“The main goal isn’t to win games at this stage, but we want the kids to play like that,” said Mount Carmel coach Ed Berberich. “The coaches are trying to see where we’re at. A win or loss won’t necessarily tell you that.”

Quincy bows out in semifinals


LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Mt. Carmel's Pete Condol and the Quincy University men's soccer team saw their season fall short of its ultimate goal, losing to No. 3 Lynn, 4-1, in the NCAA Division II Tournament semifinal on Thursday at Owsley B. Frazier Stadium at Bellarmine University.
The 5th-ranked Hawks (21-2-2) were the first Quincy team to advance to the NCAA DII semifinal.
"It's always disappointing to not advance in the tournament," said third-year Quincy head coach Mike Carpenter. "But I'm also extremely proud. I couldn't be prouder of the way our team played all year and the way they came back two goals down."
The Hawks also set the school record with 21 wins this season and played an exciting brand of offensive and defensive soccer that Quincy fans could latch onto.
"Putting Quincy back on the national map – that's what we can take from it," said Steve McAnany , senior midfielder and captain. "We showed the young guys what it takes to get this far."

Aces beat Princeton on penalty kicks

Monday, the Aces recorded their first league win in the Big 8 finale, beating Princeton on penalty kicks after finishing regulation and overtime in a 1-1 tie.

Mt. Vernon blanks Aces

MT. CARMEL - A rebound off the post in the 30th minute provided Mt. Vernon, Ind. with all the scoring it would need in a 1-0 Big 8 Conference soccer victory over Mt. Carmel Tuesday at Wabash Valley College.
Aces coach Ed Berberich said “neither team was able to get off many shots as this game was played mostly in the midfield area.
“Our defense in the back line, and Alex Stoneberger in goal, were pretty good, but offensively we weren’t very patient with the ball when entering the attacking third, and we made many play-killing decisions, often giving the ball up to Mt. Vernon with careless passes before we were able to get off a shot.”
The Aces did begin to push offensively in the final 10 minutes as they attempted to get the equalizing goal, Berberich said.
Mt. Carmel (1-5-2) played at Mt. Vernon, Ill. Thursday night.
