u17 update

Post by Geezaldinho on Fri Mar 21, 2008 7:56 pm

the u17 YNT is back in camp again. one small change from the NZ tournament.

This time, Cloee Colohan is listed as a mid. My guess it'll be a defensive mid, but you never know.

Stay tuned...

Post by Geezaldinho on Fri Jul 18, 2008 10:19 pm

The USA team coasted to a 6-0 win today in the concacaf World Cup qualifiers.

Cloee played the entire game again. Local player Courtney Verloo scored 2 and assisted on 2 goals, Kate Bennet from Washington played most of the second half..

I've noticed you noted Kate Bennet a few times? Hmmmm? Is she a possible Pilot recruit? I imagine UW is coveting her and working hard to keep her in WA! I think a good idea would be to just change the "name plate" of the US National U-17 team to Portland Pilots! ....Yah...I like that idea! Very Happy

GO PILOTS!!!

You exagerate. I only mentioned Kate twice (now three times Cool ) and be careful what you wish for - I don't even know how to pronounce Kazbek Tambi.

I just thought I'd list two local players of interest.....

If she's from the area and on a National team, why Wouldn't UP look at her? She's class of 2010, BTW. Topdrawer lists her as a four star recruit, as he does Courtney. There are currently no five star recruits in the NW on his list, which is to be expected. He doesn't get out here much, and seems to have missed some of the local talent altogether.

I miss Topdrawer. He was fun when he showed up last year in response to the "substance abuse proven" thread.

Maybe I'll do it again when he posts his preseason predictions.... Very Happy

Kate Bennett

Post by FANatic on Sat Jul 19, 2008 9:25 pm

Got a moist little tidbit for you to chew on, Phantom. Shocked

Seattle Times Seattle Area Soccer All-Stars 2007

Here's an All-Star team from the Seatlle Times for the greater Seattle area from December of 2007. You'll notice Kate Bennett of Bellevue on the list. She is listed as a sophomore, (class of 2010 as geezer said). However, the other ten All-Stars are all listed as Seniors! Do you think the Pilots are wooing this young phenom? Count on it!!! I mean, like geezer said, why wouldn't they. That, of course, in the end, will be her call. Keep your toes crossed!!! Twisted Evil

By the way, the photo on that page is none other than Ms. Bennett. And the short paragraph about her is very interesting. Just a brief quote, "...most rival coaches game plan around her...". Yeah, I'm sure we'd like to add her to 2010 verbal commits Ellen Parker and Sarah Bridges. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Thanks Fanatic! I was actually "trying" to convey an acknowledgement to Geezer that I had "no doubt" that Kate is on the Pilot's watch list! But obviously, my literal tactic didn't communicate that correctly. Sometimes, the written word isn't interpreted as clearly as the spoken word.

I'll have the wife proof read my stuff next time. I'm always being told that "she doesn't get me" anyway! HA! Shocked
...This may be the my LAST post! It was nice knowing all of you!! pale

USA squeaks by El Salvador

Post by Geezaldinho on Sun Jul 20, 2008 6:43 pm

The score in todays Qualifying match against El Salvador in Trinidad was 9-0.

Really, not a whole lot more needs to be said. They need better competition.

If you must see the gruesome details, it's Here

From geezer's gruesome details link above, there is another link (under related aticles), that gives some post-game quotes. I found one quote fairly interesting (bold's are mine):

U.S. U-17 WNT Captain Cloee Colohan

On her experience in the teams first-ever qualifying tournament:
Its been a really good experience. Being here in Trinidad is so much different that in the U.S. and just playing with the audience and everything is so different. I think it will help us if we get to New Zealand. It will calm us down and now were used to the fans and everything.

On playing on the artificial turf:
Weve been to a few training camps back at home and weve played on the artificial turf for a few months now so were pretty used to the turf and how quickly it moves. Its good. We like it.

On how much she is looking forward to playing against the host country on Tuesday:
I think we are ecstatic. We cant wait. We want to win this whole thing. We want to take home the victory so I think were really excited to play and see what the competition is like.

On trying to follow the footsteps of the U.S. Womens National Team:
Its been awesome. Being here (at this qualifying tournament) you get used to what the older girls do. Some girls dont understand that its really tough. I look up to every girl here and every girl thats on the Olympic team. Its a great experience and hopefully we just keep working for the best. We have to just try our hardest to get (to the full National Team) and, if we dont, just keep working hard.

On being named captain for the match vs. El Salvador:
It felt really great. It was really exciting but also really nervous, being the team captain and trying to take care of everybody. But it was a great experience and Im glad I was able to be the captain.


Sounds like our prize 2009 recruit has her eyes on the prize: (the big girl's team)!!!

Goin' to the Dance

Post by Geezaldinho on Thu Jul 24, 2008 7:18 pm

The US beat Mexico 1-0 in stoppage time in the semi's and will face Costa Rica in the finals of the CONCACAF qualifying tournament for the championship. The top three CONCACAF teams go to the World Cup, so the USA is in!

In an interesting development, Canada lost to Costa Rica 2-0 in a game they played poorly. Among other things, there was apparently a hand ball in the box

Canada now needs to beat Mexico for third place in the tournament to go to New Zealand.

In their previous matches earlier in the Tournament, the US defeated Costa Rica 6-0, and Canada defeated Mexico 4-1.

No reports from USSoccer yet.

Here is the USSoccer report on today's match: USSoccer U-17 WNT vs. MEX

(Sorry, geezer. Thought you might be kind of tired of posting, so I had your back on this one!) drunken

Cloee played the whole game, as usual. Courtney Verloo is sounding very dangerous and this, according to the US coach, was a very impressive Mexican team.

Kathryn (Kate) Bennett, from Bellevue WA, did not play in this match. The US is in the final on Sunday of this qualifying tournament. Very Happy

Its Canada

Post by Geezaldinho on Sun Jul 27, 2008 5:07 pm

Canada defeated Mexico for the last CONCACAF slot in the u17 world cup. They are probably practicing their New Zealand idioms as I write.

no details yet, just a score. It lloks like they will be in group "B" with Germany, Korea, and an African nation to be named.

The US-Costa Rica match is just getting under way. This one is just for seedings.

USA wins CONCACAF qualifiers

Post by Geezaldinho on Sun Jul 27, 2008 5:52 pm

The US beat Costa Rica 4:1 in the finals. This puts them in Group C in the World Cup, grouped with Japan, France, and Paraguay.

Costa Rica will be grouped with Denmark, New Zealand, and Columbia in group A.


The USSoccer report is HERE.

Cloee Colohan, Kate Bennett, and Courtney Verloo all started, Verloo scored, and Cloee came out in the 46th with the score at 4:0.
