2015 Varsity Game Recaps
QHS 1, Libertyville 2
Playing in the last game of the season for all high schools in Illinois is a special feeling and the Blue Devils were able to say they were one of two teams playing in that game. Unfortunately for QHS, Libertyville was our opponent and they were just too good on this night and they showed why they deserved to be the 2015 Illinois Class 3 state champions. Libertyville scored goals in both halves and prevented the Blue Devils from mounting offensive attacks throughout the game. QHS scored a late goal to make it interesting when Christian Blattner hit a rocket shot that was saved and Dalton Gilbert was there to put home the rebound. But it was too little too late and QHS had to settle for a state runner-up finish. It was disappointing to lose, but this team set the bar for future teams to reach and did it with a team first attitude.
QHS 3, Bartlett 2 - 2 OT
In the class 3 state semi-finals, Bartlett was a tough opponent that had tremendous size and athletic ability. These two attributes presented many problems for the Blue Devils, and Bartlett took the lead in the 2nd half on a defensive mistake by QHS. With time winding down and hopes of a state title looking dim, lightning struck with just under 4 minutes remaining when Bradyn Nokes headed in a flighted ball from Chris Clay to tie things up and send the game to OT. In OT, the Blue Devils used Riley Roth goals in each extra period to advance to the state championship game, the first in school history for boys soccer,
QHS 3, Tinley Park Andrew 1
The Blue Devils were riding high into the super sectional, But Andrew and their 6 fan busses had other thoughts as they put QHS down 1-0 just 3 minutes into the game. The Blue Devils didn't panic as they held Andrew without another shot for the first 60 minutes of the game. Riley Roth evened things up with a goal in the first half and QHS put the game away in the second half with goals by Riley Roth and Jaeden Smith. JD Sohn had 3 assists in the game sending the Blue Devils to their first final 4 since 1995.
QHS 3, Normal Community 0
The defending state runner-up was next on the slate for QHS and the Blue Devils were playing without JD Sohn who was given a bogus 2nd yellow card against Edwardsville. QHS wasted little time in jumping on Normal Community as Bradyn Nokes again put QHS on top with a header off a long Chris Clay throw in. Drew Chisholm doubled the lead just before half adn QHS was well on their way to a sectional crown. Dalton Gilbert scored a second half goal and QHS was on to the elite 8 for the first time since 2011. It was the third straight shutout for goalkeeper Eric Lubbert and the QHS defense of Chris Clay, Alec Askey, Riley Cameron, Bradyn Nokes, and Collin Burgtorf.
QHS 1, Edwardsville 0
A familiar foe awaited the Blue Devils, only this time it was in the sectional instead of the regional. On a cold rainy night, scoring opportunities were at a premium and QHS cashed in on their best one of the night when JD Sohn ripped a shot off the crossbar that dropped straight down. Bradyn Nokes was on the doorstep and headed home his 5th goal of the postseason to secure the 1-0 victory.
QHS 4, Collinsville 3 - PK's
In what many media outlets felt was a sectional championship game played as a regional final, QHS and Collinsville didn't disappoint. The game was scoreless through 80 minutes plus 20 minutes of OT to set up a PK shoot-out. Riley Roth, Bradyn Nokes, Chris Clay, and Drew Chisholm all converted their kicks while QHS goalkeeper Eric Lubbert stopped the Kahoks 3rd kicker and the fifth missed wide giving QHS their first regional crown since 2011.
QHS 3, Alton 1
The post season started in unfamiliar territory for QHS. We actually are hosting a regional for the first time in 10 years. It's so nice to not have to get on a bus for a change. We had beaten Alton 3-0 earlier in the year, but knew this game would be different as their best player didn't play in the earlier match up. QHS nearly found themselves in a 2-0 deficit, but a big save by Eric Lubbert and another save by the crossbar kept the score at 0-0. QHS finally was able to crack the scoreboard when Brayden Nokes scored off a nice ball from Chris Clay. Brayden then scored again when he was able to flick home a shot that came from J.D.Sohn. The second half saw Brayden get the hat trick when he scored off a Dalton Gilbert corner kick. Alton scored shortly after to make it interesting, but the defense was up to the challenge the rest of the game. Next up is the Sectional favorite Collinsville Kahoks. We will have our hands full, but we are at home and hope to have a HUGE student section to help us find a way to get a regional championship.
QHS 7, Troy, MO. 0
After losing back to back games for the first time all season, the team took 3 days off from practice and came back to practice with renewed energy. It showed in our last regular season game as the Blue Devils jumped out to a 4-0 lead at the half. Dalton Gilbert and Drew Chisholm scored two goals each and single goals were scored by Riley Roth, Grant Higgins, and Chris Clay. The regular season concluded with QHS having a 14-4-2 record. Not bad for a team everyone other than those associated with QHS soccer thought would be a rebuilding team.
QHS 0, Blue Valley Northwest 4
In a match-up of top 50 ranked teams in the nation, the Blue Devils simply didn't show up to play. BVNW was all over us from the beginning and held a 3-0 lead at the half. The second half saw us play with more energy and passion and it nearly paid off with an early goal. But the ball hit the post and with that, our hopes sort of faded away. Generally we are not a group that makes excuses, but this marked out 7th game in 10 days and ALL were on the road. We were a tired and physically drained team and it showed. That being said, BVNW was the best team we had seen all year. They will be a strong favorite to win the Kansas State title.
QHS 0, QND 1
The Blue Devils felt slighted in the first match-up of the season when lightning shortened the game and QND leading 1-0. Looking to get a little revenge, QHS came out and applied a lot of pressure but seemed a step slow early on. Maybe it was the long road trip the night before or maybe it was the cross town rivalry thing, or maybe just QND was the reason. Whatever the reason, the Blue Devils found themselves with several scoring opportunities that the night before would have been converted. But on this night, the ball didn't find the net. QND score late in the first half to take a 1-0 lead and the second hald saw QHS apply constant pressure but were unable to capitalize. The Blue Devils had a 20-7 advantage in shots and 11-3 advantage in corners, but in soccer the only numbers that matter is what is on the scoreboard and QHS found themselves on the losing end.
QHS 7, U.T.H.S 3
Having already clinched at least a tie for the conference championship, the Blue Devils knew U.T.H.S would come out strong as they too had a chance for a share could they beat QHS. It was senior night for the Panthers as well, so we had our hands full with the pre-season conference favorite. What happened was a showcase on how good of a team the Blue Devils could be. QHS scored 3 first half goals to take a 3-1 lead into the half. 4 unanswered goals to start the second half boosted the lead to 7-1 in a game that nobody expected to be that way. The final score was 7-3 giving QHS their 4th straight conference championship and record 25th overall in 30 years of the WB6
QHS 3, Washburn Rural, KS. 1
Even though the 2 teams are seperated by nearly 300 miles, QHS and Washburn Rural have developed quite a rivalry. We have played 4 times at the gateway classic and almost every year in the Burlington Summer Team Camp. Washburn Rural entered the game undefeated and ranked #1 in the state and #26 in the nation. QHS sruck first when Drew Chisholm scored just 8 minutes into the game on an assist from JD Sohn. Washburn Rural answered back ten minutes later to tie things at 1-1. The Deveils played a lot of defense in the first half with a strong wind into their face, but the 2nd half was a different story. With the wind advantage, QHS was able to pin Washburn Rural into their defensive half for most of the 2nd half. Drew Chisholm scored his 2nd goal of the game and JD Sohn put the game away with just under 10 minutes to play giving QHS their 2nd title at the Gateway City Soccer Classic. Not and easy feat by any means.
QHS 3, Cherry Creek, CO. 2
Playing a team we have played several times over the years, QHS came out flat and found themselves down 2-0 just 7 minutes into the game. Having seen enough, Coach Longo subbed out the entire team and asked the starters to go figure it out. Evidently they did as Jeaden Smith struck for a goal just before the half. Playing into the wind the 2nd half, QHS increased the pressure and scored two times with headers. Riley Roth got the first and Bradyn Nokes finished the scoring with 8 minutes left to send the Blue Devils on to the bracket championship game.
QHS 2, St. James Academy, KS. 0
The opening round of the Gateway City Soccer Classic say the Blue Devils take on one of the top Kansas small schools in St. James Academy. After a scoreless first half, the Blue Devils finally struck when Drew Chisholm sent a ball to Jaeden Smith who struck it one time from 30 yards out. Riley Roth put the game out of reach when he scored a 1v1 on an assist again from Drew.
QHS 5, Moline 4
In 12 years of coaching, I have never been a part of a game like this with so many goals and swings of momentum. The Blue Devils wasted little time in getting on the board when Drew Chisholm scored off a Chris Clay throw and Brayden Nokes flick. However, in a 3 minute span shortly after, Moline scored 3 times and looked to have the upper hand. Fortunately for QHS, Dalton Gilbert made a great move and rocketed a 30 yard upper 90 bomb to cut the deficit to 3-2 just before the half and give the Blue Devils some life. The 2nd half saw QHS score 3 unanswered goals as Brayden Nokes scored off a corner kick and then scored again following up a shot. Dalton Gilbert followed up a flurry of shots as well to give QHS a 5-3 lead. Moline scored with 5 minutes left to make the game interesting, but QHS held on and captured at least a share of the WB6 crown, their 25th in 30 years of the conference. They can win the title outright with a win at UTHS next week. Off we go to the Gateway Classic this weekend.
QHS 2, Jacksonville 1
Playing on back to back nights isn't easy, especially when the second game is on the road. However, QHS played great the first 20 minutes of the game and it resulted in a goal when Dalton Gilbert hit a low liner to the near post that the keeper was able to slow down but not save. Riley Roth pounced on the rebound to give a 1-0 lead. The lead was short lived as QHS gave up a long restart that found the head of Jacksonville's 6'7 defender and we were tied at the half. The game became physical in the second half, resulting in 2 red cards to the Jacksonville coaches and some QHS players having to leave the field with injuries. Fortunately, with just under 20 minutes remaining in regulation, Brayden Nokes was able to head home a Chris Clay restart to allow the Devils to leave town with a win.
QHS 3, Rock Island Alleman 0
It was Senior Night for the Blue Devils and with a lot going on, sometimes it's hard to stay focused. For 77 minutes of the game, Alleman was able to keep QHS off the board. Fortunately for the Blue Devils, it was a 2 minute span in the middle of the first half that made the difference. J.D. Sohn, Riley Roth, and Brett Landwehr all scored goals within 3 minutes of each other to secure the win on this great evening. QHS remains the lone undefeated team in the conference and can capture at least a share of the WB6 crown with a win at Moline next Tuesday.
QHS 0, Jefferson City 0
It was a bizarre night to say the least. From the bus ride, to the JV game, to the bus ride home. For the varsity game, All you really need to know is that QHS committed 15 fouls and Jefferson City 5. The Blue Devils also had a phantom Red card for profanity that both the JC and QHS players say never happened and thus played the last 25 minutes a man down. After all of this, the Blue Devils created numerous scoring chances playing a man down and missed a PK with 5 minutes left. The defense was amazing throughout the game and while we didn't get the win we were looking for, we played with a ton of heart and passion that will benefit us as we progress forward with the 2nd half of the season.
QHS 2, Rock Island 1 OT
Coming in, everyone knew Rock Island would be a team to reckon with and they didn't disappoint. The Rocks jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a 30 yard upper 90 shot. They nearly doubled their lead less than 2 minutes later when they hit the post. Fortunately for the Blue Devils, they were able to weather the storm and tie the game up just before the half when Riley Roth made a 60 yard run to even things up. QHS increased the pressure in the second half and had several scoring chances but Rock Island was able to thwart them all. The game headed to OT, where Riley Roth scored on a PK to end the game and keep QHS perfect in the conference.
QHS 0, QND 1
Coming in with a 9 game unbeaten streak against the cross town rivals is a lot to live up to. The Blue Devils didn't disappoint as they controlled the majority of the play in the first half but were unable to put one in the back of the net. The second half saw QND come out with more energy and it paid off with a goal with just over 26 minutes remaining in the game. Unfortunately for QHS, the official called the teams off the field due to lightning off in the distance right after the goal. After a 90 minute delay, the game was cancelled leaving the Blue Devils feeling frustrated they didn't get the chance to come back. The JV team won 2-0 to improve their record to 5-0.

QHS 3, Galesburg 0
Facing an athletic team that put plenty of players behind the ball made things difficult for the Blue Devils. Galesburg was able to hold QHS scoreless at the half even though the Blue Devils outshot the Streaks by a margain of 13-1. The second half saw QHS get a PK that Riley Roth converted as well as headers from Brayden Nokes and Walker Todd to pick up the conference opening win. Eric Lubbert recorded his second straight shutout and 3rd overall.
QHS 3, Alton 0
Another key sectional opponent game and QHS didn't disappoint. The Blue Devils held Alton to just 1 shot for the game but were up just 1-0 at the half on a Brayden Nokes goal. The second half saw the Blue Devils depth take over as they got two goals from Riley Roth to secure the win. Eric Lubbert recorded his 2nd shutout of the season.
QHS 4, Belleville East 2
The Blue Devils shook off a sluggish defensive first half to score two late goals to pick up a key sectional opponent victory. QHS jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals from Riley Roth and Brett Landwehr. However, a PK and 35 yard shot pulled Belleville East even at the half. QHS picked up the pace in the 2nd half and used late goals from Brayden Nokes and Jaeden Smith to seal the win. The Blue Devils didn't allow a shot in the second half.
QHS 1, Columbia Rock Bridge 1
QHS nearly got what they wanted, but a late goal from Rock Bridge cost the Blue Devils a change to retain the title at the Midwest Soccer Classic. After a scoreless first half, QHS picked up the pressure and finally got on the board when JD Sohn found Riley Roth inside the 12 to take a 1-0 lead. The Blue Devils had a chance to add to the lead late in the game, but a missed PK and two missed golden opportunities proved costly when Rock Bridge tied the game with 5 minutes left in regulation. It was the most complete game the Blue Devils had played on the young season and hope to carry it over to two crucial sectional opponent games this weekend,
QHS 1, LaDue, MO. 2
The Blue Devils found themselves trailing 1-0 at the half after a lackluster effort. Early in the second half, Bradyn Nokes scored off an assist from Chris Clay to get QHS back in the game. However, the lead was short lived as LaDue took advantage of the Blue Devils inability to clear a ball. The loss left QHS needing a shutout win in their next game to place 1st in the Midwest soccer classic.
QHS 6, Jefferson City Helias 1
QHS shoot off a sluggish first half and erupted for 4 second half goals to pick up the win in the first game of the Midwest Soccer Classic. Riley Roth led the way for the Blue Devils scoring 3 goals. Single goals were scored by Walker Todd, Jaeden Smith, and JD Sohn.
QHS 4, Beardstown 0
The Blue Devils opened their 2015 season with a 4-0 hard earned victory over an up and coming Beardstown program. QHS took a 1-0 lead into half-time when Jordan McNay scored from 30 yards out. The second half saw Beardstown miss on two excellend scoring opportunities, one of which was an excellent save by GK Eric Lubbert. J.D. Sohn made it 2-0 with a blast from 25 yards out. Drew Chisholm and Nolan Duttelman rounded out the scoring. All 4 goals were the first varsity career goal for the player. The JV team used a first half goal from Jaeden Smith and 2 second half goals from Evan Wiegand to pick up a season opening 3-1 victory.
