Goalkeepers shine in 0-0 tie between Crew, Quakes


San Jose goalkeeper and Columbus Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer both made several important saves in preserving a 0-0 tie at Crew Stadium on Saturday night.

There was a crowd of 14,109 in attendance for the exciting game.

Busch, a former Crew player, made six saves and the Earthquakes (5-6-8) saw their winless streak stretch to six games, where they are (0-2-4).

Hesmer collected five saves for the Crew (7-5-7), who in their past seven games have four wins, two losses and a tie.

Hesmer earned his second straight shutout and seventh of the season.

With the tie on Saturday night, the Crew with 28 points, tied New York and Philadelphia for first place in the MLS Eastern Conference.

San Jose was shutout for the fifth time in six games.


* The Crew Juniors Super 20 will be making a return trip to the USL Super 20 League finals with a win in their Midwest Division finale, a 4-1 decision over the Dayton Dutch Lions on July 7.

The Super 20s, coached by Crew technical director Brian Bliss, finished the regular season on top of their division with a record of 8-0-1 and 25 points.

The USL super 20 League Finals will take place July 21-24 in Tampa, Florida. The Crew will be looking to repeat as national champions.

* Andres Mendoza recorded his first MLS assist on Wednesday, June 8, against Real Salt Lake. The milestone was also the team’s 750th all-time. The first ever assist was recovered by Brian McBride in the Crew’s inaugural game at Ohio Stadium on April 14, 1996 against DC United.

* Gahanna Lincoln and Crew Soccer Academy standout Chris Davis traveled with the Crew to Montclair, New Jersey for the MLS Reserve Division match against New York on Monday, May 30. Davis came on as a substitute in the 68th minute, replacing recently signed Home Grown Player Aaron Horton, and proceded to score two goals in the 6-1 game.

The two goals brings Davis’ total to three as he had previously scored the game-winner in the 2-1 Toronto FC match.

* The Crew Juniors U19s, who won last year’s McGuire Cup National Championship, the final step of the 2010 US Youth National Championship Series, were unable to get past the 2011 US Youth Region II finals last June 24-25, despite drawing two games and winning one.

The U19s, coached by Crew technical director Brian Bliss, finished second in their group with five points after drawing the St. Croix Devils in Minnesota 1-1 with a goal by Kofi  Agyapong, beating Illinois 3-2 with goals from Tyler Ranali, William Walker and Alexander Obbey and drawing the Des Moines Menace 1-1 with a goal from Matthew Walker.

Gahanna-Lincoln senior Wil Trapp was named the 2010 high school boys soccer national player of the year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

Trapp led the Lions to 15-0-1 records the past two regular seasons and the 2009 Division I championship when he scored the winning goal in a shootout against Cleveland St. Ignatius.

Trapp has been named first-team All-Ohio the past two seasons and was the Ohio Divison I player of the year this season.

Trapp will be taking his talents to the University of Akron in 2011-2012. He is also a member of the United States under-18 men’s national team.

Massillon Jackson is Too Tall for Gahanna

Gahanna Lincoln’s boys basketball team had no answer for Massillon Jackson’s big men, and fell to the Polar Bears 62-50 in the State Tournament Division I semi-final.  The Lions of Gahanna Lincoln were 26-0 entering the game–one of only two undefeated teams still remaining, with Division II Port Clinton being the other.

Jackson’s Josh Egner and Mark Henniger–6’6″ and 6’7″, respectively–combined for 34 points and 20 rebounds against a Lions starting five that ranged from 5’10″ to 6’4″.  Egner made his presence known in the first quarter, blocking three shots, then became a dunking machine in the third quarter, scoring 11 of his 23 points.

Jackson led 18-9 at the end of the first quarter, but the Lions’ defense forced seven turnovers in the second quarter and trailed only 26-24 at halftime — thanks to 10 second-quarter points by the other “Jackson” in this game, the Lions’ Anthony Jackson.  The Polar Bears had only one field goal in the second quarter, but exploded for five baskets in the first four minutes of the third quarter behind Egner.   They led by as many as 14 midway through the fourth quarter, and cruised to Saturday’s championship match-up with Cincinnati Moeller.

Actually, “cruised” isn’t a fair description, as the Lions forced 23 Polar Bears turnovers in the game.  Anthony Jackson kept the game from being a rout by hitting on five of eight three-pointers, and matched Egner’s 23 points.

The Polar Bears shot 67% from the floor in the second half, and 58% for the game.  The Lions connected on only 32% of their shots, with several rattling out.

Michael Shull added 14 points, and Brad DuPont added 12, along with seven assists, for the winners, who finished with a 37-26 advantage on the boards.
