Goalie Thatcher Ulrich dives on the Hans Broscheit bid for a goal before it reaches the net. Sweeper is Lou Benedictes.

Lucas Brewer heads the ball netward over defender Kevin Nichols and goalie Thatcher Ulrich. It also went over the net.

Sal Monteil's penalty shot eluded Atlantic goalie Jordan Bar, tying the score at 1-1.

Soccer shootout

The Vineyard Football Assn. championship game between Coop deVille and the Atlantic Football Club (AFC) must go into the books as an oddity. No one scored a field goal. Instead there were seven goals on penalty kicks and one own goal.

Each team posted a point in regulation time — a time shortened 15 minutes by the referee for darkness.

The first wind-blown half was scoreless.

Early in the second half, a field-long boot by AFC goalie Jordan Bar was headed by the Coop sweeper Luis “Sal” Montiel, intending to send it to goalie Thatcher Urlich, but instead he put it into the net, an own goal.

Later in the period the referee found a foul in the crowded AFC crease. For a moment no one on either team knew who had been fouled or by whom. It turned out that Nate Thayer had been called for pushing. Sal Montiel was given the honor to take the penalty shot and he made no mistake.

The score was still tied, 1-1, at game’s end.

Ten penalty kicks failed to break the tie as each team buried all five of their shots. In the sudden death over-over time, Coop deVille’s Garry Metters buried their sixth penalty shot. Atlantic’s Hans Broscheit’s bid to equalize was blocked by goalie Urlich. It goes in the official soccer book as a 1-1 tie, won by Coop deVille, 6-5 on penalty kicks.

It had been a grand game between two very different but well-matched teams — a fitting end to the season of summer soccer, exhibiting commendable sportsmanshsip throughout.

Coop deVille captain and sponsor, Pete Berndt, invited the Atlantic players to join him and his team at his restaurant for an after-game party.

Other results

Third and fifth place league honors went to Broadway Screen Printing and M.V. Lath & Plaster by forfeit as neither Sports Haven nor W.R. Russell Painting were able to field a full complement of players.

James Rebello (left) and Amanda Klein (right) were awarded the Richie Madieras scholarships by Sue Madeiras and tournament imprssario Ray Tattersall.

The Wildcats tamed the Conference Table to win the Richie Madeiras Memorial.

Wildcats take the Madeiras

The final games of the Richie Madeiras Memorial softball tournament were played Sunday at Tisbury’s Veterans’ Memorial Park after a rain-caused, week-long delay.

In Sunday’s first game, the MV Hurricanes bowed to the Tradesmen of Falmouth, 5-4. The off-Islanders scored twice in the bottom of the first and twice more in the fourth. The ‘Canes posted single runs in the first and third and two to tie in the fifth. The Tradesmen scored the winning run in the bottom of the sixth.

Next the Tradesmen edged Ken’s Masonry, also of Falmouth. Ken’s jumped to a 5-1 lead in the second and stayed ahead until the bottom of the sixth when the Tradesmen crossed the plate five times to go up 9-8, the final score.

In the third game of the morning the Wildcats edged Conference Table of Falmouth, 9-7. The Cats scratched out six of their nine runs in the fifth and sixth innings.

Then Conference Table clobbered Ken’s Masonry, 19-9. The Masons scored their first run in the fifth inning, already behind 12-0.

All of the above, added to the previous week’s games added up to a final game between the Wildcats and Conference Table.

The finale

The Cats broke on top, 3-0, in the first. Wally Tomkins and Chuck Sullivan walked. Ryan Murtha’s infield hit loaded the bases. Kevin Hatt’s single up the middle drove in two. Darren Welch forced Hatt at second, Murtha taking third. Harry Holmes walked reloading the bases. John Fitzpatrick’s sacrifice fly to left scored Hatt from third. Steve Kelly bounced out, 4-6.

The Conference Table got two back in the second. A Tableman was awarded first base after stumbling over a dog on his way to the bag and eventually scored his team’s first run.

The wild-ones scored single runs in the third and fourth, then the Cats added five two-out runs in the fifth. With two down and no one on base, Jared Stobie dropped a Texas Leaguer into left. Holmes walked. Fitzpatrick’s drive into left scored Stobie. Kelly’s single up the middle drove in Holmes. Joe Fontaine’s line drive to center scored Fitzpatrick. Dave Garvin’s single to center scored Kelly. Mike Sullivan’s single to right scored Fontaine.

The Falmouth team responded with four of their own in the bottom of the inning making it 10-6 after five.

Conference Table made it more interesting with two more after the Wildcats went quietly in the sixth. 10-8.

Both teams added single runs in the seventh inning. With one down, Fitzpatrick lined a single into left, then was forced at second when Kelly hit into a fielder’s choice. Fontaine drew a base on balls. Garvin’s single up the middle scored Kelly.

Final score: Wildcats 11, Conference Table 9.

The Wildcats had gone through the two-day tourney undefeated.

It should be observed that five of the winning Wildcats were borrowed from other MV teams, notably the Brewhas, Batdogs, and Wackas.

Wacka pitcher Joe Fontaine was awarded the team MVP.

Craig Madeiros was named Conference Table MVP.

Proceeds from the tournament went to the Richie Madeiras scholarship fund. Recent recipients of $750 Madeiras scholarships were ‘04 MVRHS graduates Amanda Klein and James Rebello.

No holds barred, Julie O'Connor lets fly in the skillet throw contest at the Fair.
Skillet throw

Seventy-five skillet throwers entered the seventh annual women’s event at the 143rd MV Agricultural Society’s Fair, Sunday, demonstrating a variety of styles, all designed to fling a frying pan as far as Tom Brady can toss a pigskin — or Maggie Jiggs! But probably only those in lot 4 might remember the harridan of Bringing Up Father.

The competitors were divided into four lots according to age: 19-29, 30-45, 46-65, and 65 plus.

The longest heaves were recorded in lot 2, the 30-45 group. Jennifer Gardner scaled the skillet 55 feet, almost a yard farther than Donna Annese, who was second.

Debbie Dudra was tops in the 18-29 age lot with a 45’ 6” effort.

Debbie also won the championship face-off with all lot first place winners with a 42’3” throw.

Best six throws in the several lots were:

Lot 2, 30-45: (1) Jennifer Gardner, 55’0” (2) Donna Annese, 52’3” (3) Debra Kokernack, 45’0” (4) Michele Barry, 42’4” (5) Yolanda Nordstrom, 43’4” (6) Dilly DeBlase, 42’2”.
