The 6th ranked Dowling Catholic Maroons traveled north to take on the Ankeny Hawks in their fourth soccer match of the season. Many faithful fans braved a cold and rainy evening to cheer on their Maroons. It was a hard fought battle in challenging weather conditions. Ankeny got on the board first, scoring in the first 8 minutes of the match; this proved to be the lone goal on either side. The Maroons had the advantage in ball possession and had numerous set pieces (10 corner kicks) but they were unable to convert. The match ended 1-0 and the Maroons suffered their first loss of the season. Coach Teeling commented after the game, ‘Ankeny was a good learning experience for our boys. They are a quality conference opponent and will always be a tough matchup. Unfortunately conceding an early goal was the difference. We had several chances to get back in the game but couldn’t capitalize.’
The Maroons played their fifth match Tuesday, April 13th when they traveled to Marshalltown to face the 4-1 Bobcats. It was another cold and windy night on the pitch, fortunately we were spared any rain. The Maroons scored once in the first half with a great shot from Angel Ramirez-Reyes. The score stood at 1-0 for the halftime break. Joe Reed pushed the score to 2-0 early in the second half with an unassisted goal at the 21:18 mark. Enrico Sartori-Fernandes made it a 3-0 match with a goal at the 17:10 mark. The fourth and final goal of the match was unassisted and came off the boot of Quinn Stewart. Maroons won the match 4-0 and traveled home victorious once again. Coach Teeling was ‘more than proud of the response from our boys at Marshalltown. They rose to the occasion and won in a convincing manner at a very challenging venue.’
All the Boys Soccer teams look forward to their first home games of the season on Friday 4/16, when the Maroons host the Des Moines East Scarlets at Dowling Stadium. Join us for an exciting evening of soccer and help cheer on your DCHS Soccer Teams.
The boys played just one meet this past week as their meet against Des Moines North was cancelled. Last Thursday the boys faced a rival Valley team having more depth and Dowling fell 2-9, with the only two wins coming at #1 and #2 singles (Daniel Lu and Aidan Schultheis). Aidan won an exciting and extremely close match by just 2 points in the deciding 10 point tie break.
Congrats to the Maroons for their victory on Thursday evening, DCHS 11, SEP 0!
Good luck to all of our spring sports teams!
