For the past 5 years, the Blue Devils and Edwardsville have met for the regional championship. In each of those years, the winner of that match has gone on to at least the Elite 8. I don't see this year being any different. Unfortunately for QHS, their season comes to an end while many other teams not nearly as good continue to play. Thank you IHSA.
The Blue Devils had more shots, more corners, and more possession than Edwardsville. What they didn't lead in was the score. Edwardsville capitalized on two great chances and QHS couldn't find a way to crack the solid Tigers defense. HUnter Hoschar converted a PK with 15 minutes remaining and Edwardsville survived the last 15 minutes of QHS breathing down their neck to seal the victory.
The Blue Devils finished with a 15-4-4 record which was far better than many people thought was possible and won the Western Big 6 again. This team added to the tradition of Blue Devil soccer and with 16 players returning for 2014, the future looks bright.
For the first time in 10 years, the Blue Devils entered the postseason coming off a loss in their final game of the regular season. Instead of letting the loss get them down, QHS used it as a motivator to pick up the victory in the regional opener. The Blue Devils scored twice in each half, none bigger than the second goal of the coming with just 9 seconds left in the 1st half. QHS got a corner kick with under 30 seconds left and after a scramble in front of the goal, the ball bounced out to Devin Watson who headed it back into trouble where Blake Dittmer flicked it on to an open Hunter Hoschar who put is away. It was a back breaker for Granite City and a HUGE boost for QHS. Blake Wingerter opened the scoring for QHS after 30 minutes of back and forth play. The Blue Devils put the game out of reach early in the second half behind goals from Michael Longo and Aubrey Disseler. QHS will play Edwardsville on Saturday at 4:30 PM at Gordon Moore Park in Alton for the Regional championship.
Losing the final game of the regular season isn't exactly how you want to head into the postseason. However, the good part is, there is another game to redeem yourself. Helias made the most of their offensive chances and took advantage of key miscues to hand the Blue Devils the road defeat. The Crusaders scored 6 minutes into the game and then 30 seconds into the second half to ruin any chances of a QHS comeback. Helias was efficient on defense not letting the Blue Devils get in behind them and when QHS did, they were unable to capitalize. No time to dwell on it as we open up regional play against Granite City on Wednesday at Gordon Moore park in Alton.
For the 3rd straight game, the Blue Devils scored 7 goals and allowed none in picking up their 14th win of the season. Bradyn Nokes put QHS on the board just over 3 minutes into the game with a beautiful shot from 30 yards out. The Blue Devils would tack on 4 more first half goals from Evan Curran, Michael Longo, Blake Wingerter, and Hunter Hoschar for a 5-0 half-time lead. Blake Dittmer converted a PK and Hunter scored again for the final score. Tyler Gerst and the QHS defense recorded their 13th shutout of the year.
Having 3 days without a game was just what the Blue Devils needed for their trip to Columbia, MO. to take on Hickman High. QHS used goals from Aubrey Disseler and Chris Clay to take a 2-0 lead at the half. In the second half, the Wingerter Brothers took over with Brady Scoring when his long throw deflected off a Hickman defender and Blake scored a hat trick. Hunter Hoschar added a second half goal as well. Michael Longo had 3 assists and Riley Roth, JD Sohn, and Bradyn Nokes also had assists. Tyler Gerst and Collin Garner combined for the shutout in goal, the 12th of the season.
Playing their 6th game in 7 days, the Blue devils used the motivation of capturing their 23rd conference championship to cruise to the convincing victory. On the strength of 2 goald each from Blake Dittmer and Michael Longo and single goals from Evan Curran, Hunter Hoschar, and Aubrey Disseler, QHS earned a share of the WB6 title with Moline with a 4-0-1 record in the conference.
The cross town rivalry is always a tough game after the Gateway City Soccer Classic, but this years edition saw the game played on Monday instead of the traditional Tuesday date. The game was very much like the first game as QHS controlled the majority of the possession but settled for a 0-0 half-time score. Again, QHS scored early in the second half on a great Michael Longo goal from Hunter Hoschar. Unlike the first game, the Blue Devils couldn't hang on as QND tied things up late in the game. It was QND's only shot of the 2nd half.
Facing their toughest opponent of the year, the Blue Devils fell in the final game of the Gateway Classic to the #12 ranked team in the nation. St. Dominic scored 10 minutes into the second half on a direct kick from 22 years out. QHS controlled the play the final 15 miuntes of the game but couldn't get on the board.
The Blue Devils face an undefeated team from Rhode Island in the 2nd round of the Gateway Classic and were able to use two Evan Curran goals to pick up the victory. QHS controlled the game from start to finish to pick up their 10th shutout of the season.
QHS opened the Gateway City Soccer Classic against the #3 ranked team in Colorado and came away with a great defensive effort. Grandview was the quickest and biggest team the Blue Devils have faced this year and the defense and goalkeeper Tyler Gerst were up to the challenge. The QHS record for most consecutive games scoring a goal came to a halt at 36 in a row.
The Blue Devils twice rallied from behind to come away with a key conference victory and move into a tie for 1st place with one game remaining. Trailing 1-0, Aubrey Disseler put the Blue Devils on the board on an assist from Evan Curran. Down 2-1 at the half, QHS came out strong and tied things up quickly on a goal from Evan Curran and an assist by Michael Longo. The Blue Devils continued to apply pressure and it paid off when Longo again found an open Blake Dittmer who gave QHS the 3-2 lead. Blake Wingerter sealed the victory with a goal with seven minutes remaining off an Evan Curran Assist. The JV won 2-1 behind goals from Chris Clay and Walker Todd.
After a grueling match with Moline, the Blue Devils found themselves with heavy legs against a quality Jacksonville side. QHS was able to get on the board 14 minutes in when Aubrey Disseler nailed a poorly cleared ball into the upper 90. After the goal, the Blue Devils seemed content to move the ball around and let the defense take care of business. QHS outshot Jacksonville 15-3 and had a 5-1 advantage in corners. Tyler Gerst recorded his 8th shutout of the season including 7 in his last 8 games.
100 Minutes of soccer proved to be a physical and mental test for both teams. But in the end, these two conference rivals proved why they have been at the top of the conference for many years. The Blue Devils jumped on the board first when Blake Wingerter picked up a poor clearance and lofted the ball over the keeper. However, the lead was short lived as Moline scored just 68 seconds later. QHS had several excellent scoring chances throughout the game, but it was one of those nights where we couldn't capitalize. The JV won 2-0 behind goals from Riley Cameron and Brett Landwehr.
The Blue Devils traveled to Jeff City and picked up a hard earned 1-0 victory over a very talented Jays squad. Evan Curran was taken down in the penalty box late in the first half and Hunter Hoschar converted the penalty kick. The victory was the 7th straight overall and 6th consecutive shutout for Tyler Gerst and QHS defenders of Ben Mero, Seth Witte, Bradyn Nokes, Devin Watson, Austin Dannehold, Brady Wingerter, and Chris Clay. The JV battled to a 0-0 tie.
Step two for the conference championship proved to be less of a challenge than step one and a lot less than step three will be on the road next Tuesday in Moline. The Blue Devils scored 5 first half goals and added 3 more in the first 90 seconds of the second half to secure the victory in just 60 minutes of play. Hunter Hoschar led the way scoring 4 goals and Evan Curran had 2 goals and 3 assists on the evening. Michael Longo scored his first goal of the season and also had 3 assists. Brady Wingerter also scored his first varsity goal. Tyler Gerst and the Blue Devil defense limited the Pioneers to just 1 shot on the evening in recording their 5th consecutive shutout.
It was a great night at Flinn Stadium as these cross town rivals raised money for the Great River Honor Flight. Over $5,000 was raised and then the soccer game started. A scoreless first half saw the Blue Devils hit the post once and have a ball cleared off the line, but was scoreless at the half. QHS struck early in the 2nd half when Hunter Hoschar beat his defender and hit a low cross that Blake Dittmer one timed into the corner. The Blue Devill continues to apply pressure but were unable to dent the net. QND had several dangerous throw ins and flighted balls, but the Blue Devil defense was up to the task. Tyler Gerst recorded his 4th straight shutout. The QHS JV won 1-0 behind a Dalton Gilbert goal.
The Blue Devils opened up conference play with a solid 5-0 victory over a talented Rock Island team. QHS struck early, just a minute into the game when Brady Wingerter intercepted a pass on the wing, feeding it to Evan Curran who crossed it over to Blake Wingerter for a one time finish. Hunter Hoschar added a PK midway through the half and Bradyn Nokes put home a ball after a mad scramble in the box for a 3-0 Halftime lead. Hunter struck again in the first minute of the 2nd half when he lofted a ball over the keeper. Blake Dittmer rounded out the scoring with a perfectly placed shot in the upper corner. Tyler Gerst and Eric Lubbert combined for the shutout. The JV won 3-1 behind goals from Matt Tossick, Drew Chisholm, and Walker Todd.
The Blue Devils returned home to play a regional foe and while it wasn't the best performance, it was good enough to pick up the victory. A stingy defense for QHS limited Alton to 1 shot while the offense produced 15 shots. Riley Roth put QHS on the board when his low liner deflected off an Alton defender. The Blue Devils had several chances to add to the lead but were turned away by the keeper or missed on good opportunities. Evan Curran sealed the game late with his first goal of the season. The JV improved to 4-1 with a 1-0 victory. Brett Landwehr scored the goal and Eric Lubbert and Bryce Brooks combined for the shutout.
It was the first road trip of the year for the Devils and they came away with an impressive victory. QHS had several quality chances throughout the game but could only capitalize on one midway through the first half. Blake Dittmer finished off a breakaway on an assist from Aubrey Disseler. The defense was up to the task as well allowing the Lancers just one shot on goal while Tyler Gerst secured the shutout. The JV improved to 3-1 with a 3-0 victory. Matt Tossick scored a pair of goals and Pierre Jacobs also scored.
With both teams showing the affects of playing a second game in less than 3 hours and 100 degree heat, the game was going to be decided by the team that could deal with the elements better.
It took nearly 70 minutes, but the Blue Devils jumped on the board first when Blake Dittmer headed home an Evan Curran corner kick. QHS increased the lead to 2-0 with just under 5 minutes to play when Dittmer fed Hunter Hoschar to make it 2-0. St. Ignatius avoided the shut-out with a goal with just under 4 minutes left to play and applied constant pressure until the end. It was good to win a game over the weekend as this was a very good field of teams. We could have been 3-0 and as easily been 0-3.
Coming off the first loss of the season, the Blue Devils were looking to rebound with an early morning win. Hunter Hoschar put QHS on the board with a great direct shot from 25 yards out. Duchesne was able to get on the board in the last minute of the half with a penalty kick. QHS struck again in the first minute of the second half when the goalkeeper misplayed a Hunter Hoschar shot. Duchesne tied things up at the 13 minute mark with a nice header.
Playing in 100 degree heat is never fun, but losing makes it even worse. In the opening game of the Midwest Soccer Classic, the Blue Devils fell behind early and looked to be righting the ship when LaDue made it 2-0 5 minutes before the half. However, Hunter Hoschar scored just before the half on a Evan Currran assist to give QHS momentum heading into the half. With the wind to our backs and the sun in their eyes, the Blue Devils were looking good until a defensinve lapse and a beautiful shot put LaDue ahead 3-1. Aubrey Disseler score a PK for QHS to cut the deficit to 3-2, but it wasn't enough as QHS fell to 1-1 on the season. Tomorrow is a new day with two tough games against St. Louis Duchesne and Chicago St. Ignatius.
The Blue Devils Opened the 2013 campaign with a 3-0 victory over the visiting Monmouth-Roseville Titans. It took only 24 seconds for QHS to get on the board when Blake Wingerter carried the ball down the right side and hit a charging Hunter Hoschar for a goal from 6 yards out.
It took 28 minutes for the Blue Devils to capitalize again when Hoschar found the back of the net again on assists from Evan Curran and Riley Roth. Just 4 minutes later, Roth scored on a pretty goal set up by Curran and Hoschar.
QHS had several chances to add to the lead in the 2nd half but were unable to capitalize. The Blue Devils outshot the Titans 27-4. Tyler Gerst and Collin Shackleton shared in the shutout in goal.
The JV defeated Macomb in the prelim game 7-0. Scoring goals for QHS were Dalton Gilbert (3), Riley Cameron (2), Drew Chisholm, and Brett Landwehr. Eric Lubbert recorded the shutout in goal.
