penalty shot eluded Atlantic goalie Jordan Bar, tying the
score at 1-1.
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
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
Third and fifth place league honors went to Broadway Screen Printing

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 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.
