Cross Country: SVHS wins boys district race

PERRYVILLE -- St. Vincent won the boys race in Class 2 District 1 to advance as a team to the state meet Saturday in Jefferson City. The girls finished in second place.

Coach Terry Wood provided the details:

"The girls finished second just four points away," he said. "The girls opened the day with a great race. Corin Carroll secured second place with a time of 20:37, Genevieve Lipe finished next at eighth place (21:42). Abby Buchheit was 11th (22:00). Megan Lipe 17th (22:53), Abbey Hotop 22nd (23:40), Courtney Brewer 26th (24:17), and Abigail Schremp 28th (24:32).

"The finishes of the top five were good enough to post a low score of 44 points for St. Vincent girls, yet it was not quite enough to pass Jefferson R7 who secured a lower score of 40. A second place finish still secured their trip to the state meet in Jefferson City," coach Wood said.

"The boys race was vastly different," coach Wood continued. "Joseph Baer was the top runner finishing third (17:24). Teammate Andrew Lipe was close behind with a 17:36, good enough for fifth. Jack Baer cam in next at ninth place (18:13) and Kyle Steinbecker was after him finishing 14th (18:32). Caleb Roth rounded off the scorers for the boys finishing 19th (18:48). Dominic Sauer was just behind Caleb at 21st place (18:51) and Nick Geile finished in 34th place (19:40) to finalize SV's spot in the team standings. St. Vincent would take the team title with a score of 50 points. Saxony Lutheran finished second with a score of 74."

Flaherty still led the Pirate offense with 86 rushing yards. He failed to complete any of his three pass attempts.

The Knights (5-4) took a 23-0 lead into the half.

PHS was hurt by three fumbles, nine penalties and they also gave up a safety.

Logan Thaxton led the defense with six tackles.

Despite the loss it was a good year for the Pirates under first-year head coach Blane Boss.

Their 6-3 record marked the first winning season for PHS since 1998.

The Indians scored on a 58-yard run by Jesse Robinson in the first but trailed 19-7 heading into the second.

Blake Schnurbush returned an interception for 81 yards for a St Vincent score in the second and after Garret Dobbelare's 12-yard touchdown throw to Isaac Ernst the Indians led 20-19.

But the Red Devils owned the lead at the half 25-20.

After a scoreless third period the Indians regained the lead on a 63-yard touchdown throw from Dobbelare to Austin Dauster.

But that would be the final score for the Indians.

Robinson led St. Vincent rushers with 70 yards.

Dobbelare threw for 236 yards in the game and Dauster was his favorite target with seven catches for 131 yards.

Soccer: PHS falls to St. Pius 1-0 in districts

PERRYVILLE – The Perryville High School varsity season ended Tuesday with a 1-0 loss to St. Pius in Districts.

"The guys came into this game playing great ball recently but we didn’t stick to that same type of play the first half. We were still able to hold off Pius and went into halftime 0-0. In the 2nd half the team started to get back on track and played better ball. They created more set plays and more scoring opportunities but Pius packed it in and made it very difficult to get the ball in the net. With four minutes left Pius got a clear shot on goal that bounced down off of the cross bar that was called in just past the line for the winning goal," the team posted to its Facebook page.

"The guys played hard and gave it their all. We appreciate all the hard work they put in throughout the year. They learned a lot this season and we are looking forward to see what they can do next season. We will miss our seniors and wish only the best for them in their future endeavors. Thanks to all those who supported the team and special thanks to the parents for the time they put in for us. Ending record 13-7. Go Pirates!"

PHS (4-1) dominated the first half and took a 41-6 lead into the break.

"You cannot spot a class four team a 40 point lead. We did not come ready to plan and dug ourselves a hole we could not climb out of," said St. Vincent coach Nathan Rowland.

St. Vincents fumbled on their first play from scrimmage and PHS quarterback Bryce Flaherty on the Pirates first play raced 48 yards to give PHS the lead with 11:36 in the first.

The Indians fumbled again on their next possesion and Flaherty made them pay with a 26-yard TD pass to Anthony Gray as PHS took a 14-0 lead with 8:43 in the first.

With 3:58 before the half the Indians recovered a PHS fumble that set up a 5-yard TD pass from sophomore Garrett Dobbelare to Tyler Wibbenmeyer.

PHS responded with two long TD runs before the break. A 54-yard dash by Jerome Simpson and a 45 yard run by Flaherty gave the Pirates a 35 point lead at the break and set up a continuous clock for the second half.

"We had personal fouls, bad snaps all kinds of mistakes that first half, "Rowland said.

The Indians did not quit and challenged the Pirates in the second half.

Dobbelare took St. Vincents on a 54-yard drive to open the third and found freshman Blake Schnurbush on a 3-yard TD pass to cut the PHS lead to 41-13.

rushed for 165 yards on only nine carries. Hunter was also productive with 148 yard on 13 carries. Simpson needed only six carries for 92 yards and Derek Kirn had 91 yards on 11 rushes.

"The battles are won upfront and our line did a good job tonight," Boss said.

"They had size up front. It's just hard to match up against a class four team. They have 22 seniors and we have 3," Rowland said.

"Our offensive line played hard and gave Garrett more time in the second half," he said.

Dobbelare suffered two interceptions but he was 28 of 48 in the game for 353 yards.

Cards ink Stephen Piscotty to multi-year pact

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Monday that they have agreed to terms with outfielder Stephen Piscotty on a six-year contract (2017-2022) that includes a club option for the 2023 season. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Having Stephen Piscotty join a number of our current players who are also under contract into the foreseeable future allows us to continue to maintain the level of consistency that has been so important to our organization’s success," stated Cardinals’ Chairman Bill Dewitt, Jr.

With today’s signing, Piscotty joins eight of his current teammates who are also under contract thru at least the 2020 season - Matt Carpenter, Brett Cecil, Dexter Fowler, Jedd Gyorko, Mike Leake, Carlos Martinez, Yadier Molina and Kolten Wong.

"Stephen is a steady player, who we feel embodies the consistent, hard-working style that will be a constant in our lineup for many years to come," said Cardinals’ Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. "He is always looking to grow and develop his game and has already exhibited the strong traits of a leader."

Piscotty, 26, was drafted by the Cardinals in the supplemental first round (36th player overall) of the 2012 First Year Player Draft out of Stanford University. Since making his Major League debut in July of 2015, Piscotty has compiled a .282 batting mark with 29 home runs and 124 RBI in 217 games.

Piscotty led the team in games played (153), runs scored (86), RBI (85) and game-winning RBI (10) last season while swatting 22 HR’s to go along with his .273 batting mark. For his efforts, Piscotty was selected as the Cardinals nominee for the prestigious Hank Aaron Award that is given annually to the top hitter in each league. Piscotty was also chosen as the Cardinals representative for the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association’s (MLBPAA) "Heart and Hustle" Award in 2016.

Piscotty has been especially tough in the clutch, batting .357 with two outs and runners in scoring position during his career, ranking 3rd in the majors over the past two (2015-16) seasons. Piscotty ranked 2nd in the N.L. last season with a .363 batting mark with runners in scoring position and he led the team with 37 two-out RBI (6th in the N.L.).

Of his 29 career home runs, 10 have either tied the game or given the Cardinals the lead.

Piscotty hit three home runs during the 2015 Division Series, the most ever by a Cardinals rookie in a Division Series, as were his six RBI in a Division Series.

Cardinals and Molina reach agreement

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals reached agreement today with Yadier Molina, considered to be among the greatest players in franchise history, on a three-year (2018-2020) contract extension. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"Yadier Molina has demonstrated for many years his importance to the Cardinals organization and his ability to perform at a consistently high level on some of the games’ biggest stages," stated Cardinals’ Chairman Bill Dewitt, Jr. "We are pleased to announce on this special Opening Day, that Yadier will remain a St. Louis Cardinal for several more years, as he continues to add to his many career accomplishments and his franchise legacy."

Molina, 34, has spent his entire 13-year career (2004-16) with St. Louis after being drafted in the 4th round of the 2000 free-agent draft out of Vega Alta, Puerto Rico. Since debuting with the Cardinals in 2004, Molina has compiled a .285 career batting average with 108 home runs and 703 RBI in 1,611 games played.

Molina has been selected to seven National League All-Star teams (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and has garnered eight Rawlings Gold Glove awards (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and four Rawlings Platinum Glove awards (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015) for defensive excellence.

"It is with great satisfaction that we are able to announce today that Yadier Molina will remain in his proper place as the centerpiece of our team for the next several seasons," said Cardinals’ Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. "His experience, leadership, work ethic and special ability to help bring out the best in those around him are qualities we value greatly, and they will remain important as we seek to win not only now, but also in the coming years, when many of our organization’s top young pitchers begin to emerge at the Major League level."

The two-time World Series Champion (2006, 2011) has appeared in a franchise-record 89 postseason games and owns a team-record 90 career hits in the postseason, including a dramatic two-run homer in the 9th inning of the Cardinals 3-1 National League Championship Series Game 7 win over the New York Mets in 2006 that helped propel the Cardinals to the World Series.

Molina has received votes for the N.L. Most Valuable Player award in five seasons (2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2016), including top-5 finishes in 2012 (4th) and 2013 (3rd). Molina was the recipient of the National League Silver Slugger award in 2013 when he batted a career-best .319 with 12 HR’s and 80 RBI.

Yadier appeared in a career-high 147 games last season, batting a team-best .307 (8th in N.L.), as he became just one of nine catchers in Major League history to have compiled five or more seasons with a .300 or better batting mark - joining Ivan Rodriguez, Mike Piazza, Ted Simmons, Mickey Cochrane, Joe Mauer, Victor Martinez, Thurman Munson and Bill Dickey.

Molina led all MLB catchers in innings caught (1,218.1) last season, his 9th-straight season with over 1,000 innings. He also set single-season bests for games (146), starts (142), total chances (1,175), putouts (1,113) and fielding pct. (.998).

Yadier enters the 2017 season ranked among the majors all-time catching leaders in games caught (1,582), innings caught (13,254.0), putouts (10,470) and total chances (11,377). Molina also ranks among the Cardinals all-time leaders in games played (1,611-10th), hits (1,593-13th), doubles (308-12th), home runs (108-19th) and RBI (703-13th). He is one of just 34 catchers in Major League history to have amassed 1,500 career hits with his 1,593 hits ranking 25th all-time among Major League catchers.

Molina is poised to make his 13th-consecutive Opening Day start later this evening, trailing only Cardinals’ Hall of Famers Stan Musial (18, 1946-63) and Lou Brock (15, 1965-79).

Molina is the younger brother of former Major League catchers Bengie and Jose Molina – the only trio of brothers to have each won a World Series Championship.

Yadier participated in his fourth World Baseball Classic last month, leading the Puerto Rican Team to the tournament’s Championship Game, and he was named to the All-World Baseball Classic Team for the second time in his career (was also selected in 2013).

Entering the 2017 season, Yadier ranks 10th all-time among native Puerto Rican’s in career batting average (.285) and he is one of just 20 players from his homeland to have reached the 1,500 career hit plateau. Yadi currently stands 20th in RBI (703) among his countrymen, just eight RBI back of his brother Bengie (711).

At the completion of this contract in 2020, Yadier would join Hall of Famers Stan Musial (22 years; 1941-63) and Bob Gibson (17 years; 1959-1975) as the lone players to have spent 17 or more seasons solely as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cardinals ink Carlos Martinez to new deal

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced Thursday that they have signed All-Star pitcher Carlos Martinez to a five-year contract (2017-21) that also includes club options for 2022 and 2023. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. With Thursday’s signing, the team and Martinez avoid salary arbitration.

"Carlos has demonstrated that he is ready to take his position among the game’s top pitchers for many years to come, and we are pleased to announce that he will be anchoring our starting rotation into the foreseeable future," stated Cardinals Senior Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak.

Martinez, 25, paced the Cardinals pitching staff in wins (16) and strikeouts (174) last season while making a career-high 31 starts with 195.1 innings pitched. The hard-throwing right-hander, a National League All-Star in 2015, has delivered 30 wins over the past two seasons (2015-16), ranking 5th among Senior Circuit pitchers.

Martinez’ .618 (34-21) career winning pct. ranks 3rd all-time (min. 50 decisions) among Cardinals pitchers age 25 years or younger, trailing only Howie Pollet (.661) and Dizzy Dean (.651).

The Dominican native, who was signed by the Cardinals as a non-drafted free-agent in April of 2010, ranked among N.L. leaders in wins (5th), ERA (3.04, 9th), innings pitched (10th), quality starts (20, 6th) and opponent’s batting average (.233, 12th) in 2016.

Against right-handed batters, Martinez limited the opposition to a league-low .269 slugging mark and a .207 batting average, historical marks in Cardinals single-season history. He allowed a total of just 15 home runs last season (only four against righties) and ranked 4th among N.L. pitchers in HR/9 IP ratio (0.69).

Martinez induced 33 double plays in 2016, ranking 2nd in the majors, while finishing one shy of John Denny’s club single-season record (34 in 1978). In the field, he led Major League pitchers with 25 putouts and at the plate he had a career-high 14 hits (5th among MLB pitchers) and ranked fourth in pitcher’s batting (.237).

The flamboyant Martinez, popular among Cardinals fans both in the States and in his native Dominican Republic, has developed a strong bond with Cardinals Nation through his Tsunami Waves charitable foundation by giving back to those in need both in St. Louis and his home of Puerto Plata.

The Ambush and Comets have met once thus far this season, with the Comets prevailing 8-3 in the November 13 season opener at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena in Independence. The Comets produced a varied offensive attack in that contest, with eight different players, including goalkeeper Stephen Paterson, finding the back of the net.

Before they visit the Family Arena for Saturday’s matinee match, the Comets journey to Florida on Friday night to square off with the Florida Tropics.

Kansas City is led by dangerous forward Leo Gibson. Gibson is tied for fifth in the MASL in points (22), second in assists (13), sixth in average points per game (2.75) and second in game-winning goals (3). Comets goalkeeper Stephen Paterson ranks third in the league in goals against average (3.91), third in save percentage (.754), and is tied for third in wins with five. Paterson has also posted one of the only two shutouts in the league thus far this season.

The Ambush scoring leaders are Corey Adamson, Stefan St. Louis and Richard Schmermund (five goals each). The point leaders are Schmermund and St. Louis (seven each) and the leader in assists is Kentaro Takada with five.

Saturday’s contest also marks the return to St. Louis of Odaine Sinclair, who played the last three seasons with the Ambush and won the 2013-14 MISL Rookie of the Year honor. Sinclair tallied 36 goals and 38 assists in three seasons with the Ambush. He has two goals and one assist in eight games played thus far this season with the Comets.
