Division II boys soccer state championship: Revere 2, Columbus Bishop Watterson 0

COLUMBUS: Revere boys soccer coach Sandor Jakab was in the middle of savoring the moment on the pitch when assistant John Rorabaugh came over to chat him up.Rorabaugh gave Jakab a hug and did his best distraction job as a group of Minutemen sophomores proceeded to dump a cold bucket of ice water on their leader on a cool and windy day at Columbus Crew Stadium.It was celebration time for Revere following its 2-0 victory Saturday over Columbus Bishop Watterson in the Division II state championship match. The title is Revere’s first in an OHSAA state team tournament.Sophomore Daniel Branch scored a goal in the fourth minute and senior Nolan Dyko added a goal in the 32nd minute to lead the Minutemen (21-0-2) over the Eagles (18-5-0).“This is beyond belief,” Jakab said following hugs with his wife, Sherri, and their six children. “It has been a lifelong ambition, but it has also been this team’s ambition to bring a state title to this school. Golly, we are a team. How we came together as a team to get this done this year is unbelievable. What a feeling.”

Revere finished as state runner-up in 2011, 2010 and 1995, and was a state semifinalist participant in 2004 and 2000. The Minutemen have a 78-5-4 record since 2010.

“This was obviously emotional and the third time is the charm I guess,” senior goalkeeper Joel Gerberich said. “Being able to go down and turn to [senior] Chase Somple [and share a hug], this has been what we have been working for all year. This was emotional and awesome.”

Revere held an edge in shots on goal (7-1) and corner kicks (2-0).

“We came out and got those two early goals,” Jakab said. “We knew we had the wind at our back. Branch came out strong and hit that one. Dyko put one away. That is energy that we feed off of. We had to go through moments and we got the job done today. That is a very good team that we played against.”

Branch finishes the season with a team-high 19 goals.

“They are a good team, but we were just on fire and we didn’t let up,” Branch said. “They are definitely one of the best teams we have played all season.

“I have been so anxious since the end of last season. This is all I have wanted to do. This means a lot that we came through and we got this win.”

Revere senior Brian Gillette assisted on Dyko’s goal, his 13th this season.

“Thankfully the ball came to me from Brian’s pass,” Dyko said. “He was the garbage man who picked up the loose ball and passed it to me. I was focused enough to put it away. I felt like I was focused for this game and mentally prepared, and same for the whole team. This is a great feeling.”

Gerberich saved one shot and benefited from a solid defensive unit of seniors Brandon Taylor and Andrew Robinson and sophomores Simon Kirkendall and John Sternasty.

Taylor said the perpetrators of dousing Jakab with water were “sophomore hooligans.”

“This feels great,” Taylor said. “It hasn’t really set in yet.”

Dyko and Somple started at midfield with junior Luke Kasson. Branch started at forward with seniors Jordan Marich and Blake Easterling.

“I know it sounds cliché, but it is so indescribable,” Somple said. “The feeling, I still can’t believe it is real. It doesn’t feel like we won. I am sure it will settle in later.”

Revere caps its season with 101 goals scored and 11 goals allowed. The Minutemen shut out 16 opponents this season and Gerberich finishes with 39 shutouts in his career.

“They were smart,” Watterson coach Chad Smith said. “They won the coin toss and they took the wind, which is exactly what we wanted to do. They were more smart in playing direct right at us with the wind. I think the first goal, I saw a little bit of nerves in my boys. I felt like we were not exactly fluid in our movement.

“They are a very well coached team and you could tell they have played here before two years ago. Just the experience of being here and the experience being in this situation, and there are some big boys on that team. If you looked down their sideline you see several large kids on that team. We knew we were in for a battle.”

Revere boys soccer defeats Bay to clinch berth in OHSAA Division II state final (video)

                    By                     Robert Rozboril, Northeast Ohio Media Group                     on  November 06, 2013 10:38 p.m.

BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio – Revere came out aggressive from the start of Wednesday’s boys soccer Division II state semifinal and it paid off as the Minutemen defeated Bay, 4-3, on a rainy night at Brecksville-Broadview Heights.

The Minutemen will face Columbus Bishop Watterson, which beat Indian Hill, 2-1, in overtime, in the Division II state final Saturday at Crew Stadium in Columbus at 3:30 p.m.

“This team has put it together with team chemistry, creating and finishing the opportunities at hand,” said Revere coach Sandor Jakab. “It’s a tremendous group of individuals and we have a lot of ways to do things. We defend well and we’re very dynamic at the attacking end of the field as well.”


Nolan Dyko put Revere on the board first on a header with 19:11 to go in the first half. Brandon Taylor provided the assist. Bay goalie Colin Southerington stepped up into a crowd to try and knock the shot away with his head but the ball skipped off his head and into the goal.

Dyko took an assisting role on Revere’s second goal, just minutes later. He came up near the left post and dished it to Brian Gillette, who netted the Minutemen’s second score.

The game went to halftime with Revere holding onto a 2-0 lead.

Almost 11 minutes into the second half, Southerington made an acrobatic save on a shot by Jordan Marich only to have Gillette score his second goal of the night off the rebound.

Revere got an opportunity for a free kick after Daniel Branch was fouled while driving toward the goal. The kick was no good as it went off the crossbar.

Dillon Gundlach put Bay on the board with a goal with less than 19 minutes left. Just moments later, Revere answered as Gillette netted his third goal of the night. Marich got an assist on the play. Gillette now has 13 goals on the year and seven in postseason play.

“He just comes out every day and works his tail off. He’s probably the hardest working kid we have,” Jakab said about Gillette.

Bay made it exciting in the final minutes. Domenic Ruma scored the second goal for Bay. Matt Comienski added a score on a penalty kick with 17 seconds remaining to bring the Rockets to within one, but it was too little, too late in the end.

“It’s heartbreaking,” said Bay coach Bobby Dougherty, describing the experience of coming so close to a state championship game. “But we’re a little older this year. It’s a thick junior class and we’ve got a couple of seniors in the mix. We’re going to be just as nasty next year and hopefully we can get over that hump.”

While Jakab was excited his team came away with a win and a trip to the state title game, he was less than thrilled that the Rockets were able to score two late goals against his players.

“You can never let up against a team like Bay,” Jakab said. “I was disappointed that we allowed some of the complacency to settle in. With that said, we finished the game.”




Congratulations to Brandon Taylor!!

Defender Brandon Taylor combines ability, composure to help Revere boys soccer earn No. 1 ranking in Division II

Revere senior Brandon Taylor is undecided about his future in college.
He is clear about the present with the Minutemen boys soccer team.
“We want to win the Suburban League outright, which we should do if we finish with a couple of more wins,” Taylor said. “We just take it one game at a time, really. We want to win sectional, district, regional and get to the state championship and win.”
Revere has finished as the Division II state runner-up twice (2010, 2011) during Taylor’s career, and was a district finalist in 2012.
Taylor, in his fourth year as a starter at defender, is hoping this season will end with a state championship trophy. Revere is ranked No. 1 in the Division II state coaches poll and has a 13-0-1 overall record and a 6-0-0 Suburban League mark. The Minutemen have outscored opponents 73-4 and have allowed goals in only two matches this season.
Revere boys soccer coach Sandor Jakab says Taylor, 18, is a key component to the Minutemen’s attack as a tri-captain with senior goalkeeper Joel Gerberich and senior midfielder Chase Somple.
“Brandon is a stable influence to the team,” Jakab said. “He is a composed player who doesn’t get ruffled by situations. He is a player that obviously has the ability to do whatever you would like to be done with the ball. The fact that he has that composure and mental toughness allows him to play. Players often have the ability, but don’t have the mental strength to be able to play under the kind of pressure and adversity that it takes. Brandon is a unique player.”
Taylor’s skill set has caught the attention of colleges, and a scholarship could be in his future.
“I am mostly looking at West Virginia,” Taylor said. “I had a visit there [Sunday] and watched their game [against Akron]. They like me. They want to see me again, and if they like that then I think they will offer me something probably.”
Taylor, who is 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, has a 3.3 grade-point average and earned a 26 on the ACT. Ohio State, Bowling Green and others also have shown interest.
“Brandon is an excellent student academically,” Jakab said. “As far as personality, he is a low-key, quiet person. He does have a sense of humor. He takes a little while to open up, but with that said, he is a great person and well liked by everybody in the school.”
Taylor plans to major in business or accounting in college, but before that he and his teammates have some work to do at the high school level.
“The presence is the leadership,” Jakab said of Taylor. “When he is out there you know that you have a direction with the team and you know that he has the capability to lead a team and takes it where it needs to go. Players feed off of that positive that he brings to the table. The mental strength to deal with situations and the composure he brings forces others to really step up and not let up because you don’t want to let a player like that down. You want to make sure you support him and do everything you can.”
Revere has wins this season over Perrysburg (at Columbus Crew Stadium) and several area teams including rivals Copley and Green. Its draw came against Bay Village Bay.
Taylor said he likes to “keep the ball down, but if I see something open over the top I will go with it.” As a defender, his primary concern is not giving up possession.
Taylor, Gerberich and Somple are key seniors along with Andrew Robinson, Jordan Marich, Nolan Dyko, Blake Easterling and Brian Gillette for the Minutemen.
Junior Luke Kasson is an impact player along with sophomores John Sternasty, Mark Oleson, Daniel Branch and Simon Kirkendall.
“I think this is the strongest team we have had in my four years,” Taylor said.
Revere, which is 68-5-6 since 2010, concludes the regular season with matches at home against Canfield on Saturday and at Wadsworth on Tuesday before starting tournament play.

Girls soccer: Revere 1, CVCA 1

CUYAHOGA FALLS: Revere senior striker Amanda Gallo fully expects to play Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy again in the district tournament.That was the prevailing sentiment after the visiting Minutemen and the Royals played to a 1-1 draw Monday night in a thrilling girls soccer match.The sectional-district brackets are put together Sunday.

Trailing 1-0, Revere equalized with 19:22 left in the game when senior midfielder Maddie Holvey blasted home a shot from 40 yards out. It caught CVCA goalkeeper Lauren Lichty by surprise and slid under the cross bar.

“It picked up our spirits,” said Gallo, now receiving some Division I recruiting interest. “We were like, ‘Yeah, we’ve got this.’ ”

What ensued from that point until the final tick on the clock had every bit the feel of a district championship game.

“All of the momentum switched to their side,” CVCA coach Bob Adamov said. “So, to be able to hold on, I was happy to come out with a tie.”

Revere (8-2-2) was relentless in sustaining its attack, and kept Lichty under siege.

“If we had played with that intensity through the whole game, and no disrespect to CVCA, but I think we would have won,” Revere coach Dave Howson said. “I’m not going to complain, especially going a goal down.”

A shot from freshman Audrey Harding glanced off the crossbar.

A shot from Gallo deflected off the post.

“It was difficult for CVCA to break out of their half,” Howson said. “Most of the action the last 20 minutes was down at their goal, and maybe we have to work at finishing in practice, but I was very pleased with our effort and attitude.”

With less than eight minutes play, five straight corner kicks during a four-minute stretch, kept CVCA flailing to clear the ball.

“We outshot them by a lot,” Gallo said. “But, we couldn’t finish.”

Adamov was especially proud of Lichty’s performance, given she is an emergency substitute with the team’s first two keepers injured.

“She came up to me and said, ‘I’ll do whatever it takes for the team,’ ” Adamov said.

Lichty, a top reserve field player, had virtually no goalkeeping experience when she volunteered to fill the void.

“I played [goalie] a little bit in pee wee league, but that really doesn’t count,” she said.

The Royals (8-3-1) scored at 7:10 of the first half when senior center midfielder Katherine Kouzelos slipped a pass ahead to sophomore wing Kim VanBuskirk, who scored from a tough, right-to-left angle by getting the ball inside the back post.

“Katherine’s been our offensive catalyst for the last two or three years,” Adamov said.

With perennial state power Walsh Jesuit moving up to Division I, the Division II bracket is going to be wide open. CVCA and Revere are pegged among the contenders.

Asked if she thought she’d see Revere again, Kouzelos said, “Yes, definitely. And it’s going to be a really good game.”

The Superintendents of the Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Stow-Munroe Falls and Twinsburg City School Districts will recommend to their Boards of Education that their district accept an invitation to join the newly reconfigured Suburban League effective the 2015-2016 school year.
The four school districts are expecting to have a vote next week to finalize the decision.
The Suburban League also invited Brecksville-Broadview Heights, North Royalton, Aurora, Kent Roosevelt and Barberton so it can form two-eight team divisions of similar enrollment. If approved, Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Stow-Munroe Falls and Twinsburg  will be in the larger school division along with Brecksville-Broadview Heights, North Royalton, Nordonia, and Wadsworth.
Schools invited to compete in the smaller school division are Copley, Cloverleaf, Highland, Tallmadge, Revere, Barberton, Kent Roosevelt and Aurora.
The expanded Suburban League will offer the opportunity for large and small school division cross-over for league and non-league play where appropriate, and a tighter geographic area for play when considering middle of the week contests for many sports and for middle school, freshman and junior varsity competition.
The Superintendents of Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Stow-Munroe Falls and Twinsburg issued a joint statement that says: “The Suburban League Large Division schools have played each other in competition in years past. This move allows us to revive exciting rivalries and build great relationships in this newly expanded league. These relationships will also help foster healthy competition for our students both in the classroom and on the field. The close proximity of these schools will allow our fans, teams and band to cut down on travel time and expenses and is in the best interest of our students.”
