After the Galesburg game, the Blue Devils were looking for a consistent 80 minute effort against a quality opponent. They got just that against cross town rival QND. QHS controlled the game from start to finish and received a goal from Devin Watson in each half to earn the win. The Senior Class went 6-0-2 against QND in their career. The shutout with the 11th on the season for the QHS defense. It was also a special night as the Blue Devils raised money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. This was the 4th year in a row QHS has raised money for a charity.
With a chance to wrap up a share of the WB6 title, the Blue Devils had to win and hope Moline could upset UTHS. After an early Blake Wingerter goal, the Blue Devils looked lethargic and just went through the motions. After a spirited half time talk, QHS came out much more focused and it showed. Devin Watson, Hunter Hoschar, and Riley Roth all scored second half goals and Hunter added two assists to seal the win. To make things better, Moline beat UTHS 3-0 to guarantee the Blue Devils a share of the WB6. It was the 24th title in 29 years for the Blue Devils.
In the 3rd place match, QHS took on New Mexico power Sandia Prep. The Red Devils have won 4 straight state titles and are always considered one of the elite programs in the nation. The Blue Devils controlled the majority of the first half but could only capitalize on one Hunter Hoschar goal. The second half saw QHS play in a defensive shell, but the defense stood tall to earn their 9th shutout.
The semi finals of the Gateway saw QHS play against National power St. Thomas Aquinas. Aquinas was ranked as high as #7 in the nation earlier this season and has won 9 of the last 10 Kansas state titles and we knew it would be a tough game. The Blue Devils controlled the first half despite going into the wind. However, the second half belonged to the Saints as they scored twice to seal the victory. Aquinas would go on to win the bracket title.
The Blue Devils opened the 2014 Gateway City Soccer Classic against one of Colorado's elite teams. The game was played in a steady rain and eventually called at the 77:00 minute mark due to lightning. The Blue Devils won a coin flip to move to the winners bracket.
What a difference a week makes. The shots we had against Moline found the back of then net. The shots against UTHS didn't. Soccer is a cruel game in that the team that plays the best doesn't always win. That was the case against the Panthers. The Blue Devils controlled the play, outshot UTHS and had more corners. But in soccer, the only thing that matters is the balls that hit the back of the net and UTHS was able to get one just before half time. UTHS moved to 4-0 in the conference with Moline left to play. In order for the Blue Devils to have a chance to tie for the conference, they need Moline to beat UTHS and the Blue Devils need to win at Galesburg.
Coming off 2 straight losses at home, the last thing many wanted to see was the conference favorite and 12-1 Moline Maroons come to town. Moline is a senior laden team led by the Castillo twins who have been a thorn in the side of the Blue Devils for 4 years. On Monday at practice, the Blue Devils broke down the system and talked about Moline's system. The practice paid off as QHS exploded for 4 first half goals. Blake Wingerter put QHS on the board early in the game and Riley Roth added a goal midway through the half. When it looked like QHS would take a 2-0 lead into the break, Hunter Hoschar scored two goals in the last 45 seconds of the half to pretty much put the game away. The Blue Devils continued to play well in the second half, allowing a penalty kick goal with 10 minutes left in the game. Before the game, the Blue Devils presented a check to Moline Coach Rick Sanchez as part of our ALS challenge. Coach Sanchez's father passed away from ALS. While the two teams are conference rivals, they truly do share a bond and mutual respect for each other.
After a lack luster game vs Jefferson City, the Blue Devils were looking to right the ship. Jacksonville entered the match 8-0 and were as good as advertised. In the first minute alone, QHS had more shots on goal than the entire Jeff City game. The Crimsons took the lead midway through the first half when a flighted ball was jarred loose from Tyler Gert's hands and fell into the net. It was a tough pill to swallow as video showed Tyler was run into on the play. The Blue Devils and Crimsons battled the rest of the game which at times was very physical. The game resulted in QHS getting 4 yellow cards and a red card. Jacksonville scored a goal late to seal the victory. Jacksonville will be a tough team to beat in the Class 2 state tournament as they are big and fast. The loss left the Blue Devils searching for answers.
The day after a long bus ride to the Quad Cities, the Blue Devils finally were able to play on their home turf after a 5 game road streak. Unfortunately, the 3 overtime games and two long bus trips seemed to be too much for QHS to overcome. Jefferson City scored a goal in the second half to earn the win over a very uninspired Blue Devil team.
After a grueling emotional game on Saturday, you knew there would be a letdown. However, nobody expected this. The Blue Devil got on the board early behind a Blake Wingerter goal and led 1-0 at the half. However, Alleman came out inspired and scored to tie it and an own goal gave them a 2-1 lead. hunter Hoschar scored a direct kick only to see Alleman answer. Trainling 3-2 with just over two mintes left, Devin Watson scored on a great flighted ball from Brady Wingerter to tie it up. Brayden Nokes scored the game winning in the first minute of OT to let the Blue Devils escape with the win.
This was a game that a high school player will remember forever. Twoteams ranked in the top 16 in the nation, playing in front of a full house, and an intense student section. The boy's on the field didn't disappoint either. For the 7th time in 8 games, the Blue Devils managed to hold a team scoreless. Unfortunately, QHS couldn't score either. Per Missouri rules, no game can finish in a tie, thus the game went to PK's. Chaminade came out on the winning end 4-3. It was a game we will never forget.
For a soccer enthusiast, this was a game for the ages. The cross town rivals battled for nearly 100 minutes of scoreless soccer. Both teams had scoring chances, with the Blue Devils having a few of the better ones. With 23 seconds left in the 2nd overtime, Bradyn Nokes headed home a Seth Witte corner to send QHS to the golden goal victory. The shutout was the 6th of the season for the Blue Devils GK and defense.
The Rocks entered the game undefeated and were playing at home and looking to make a statement that they belonged among the best of the WB6. However, the Blue Devils had other ideas and it didn't take long for QHS to get on the board. A long throw from Brady Wingerter found Hunter Hoschar inside the 6 yard box. Hoschar flicked the ball on goal and into the for post side netting just 5 minutes into the game. The Blue Devils continued to pepper Rock Island throughout the rainy first half, but were unable to add to their lead. Devin Watson added to the QHS lead in the second half with a rocket from 30 yards out. As it started to rain harder, the Blue Devils increased the pressure. With 25 minutes remaining in the game, the game was stopped due to poor weather and with no relief in sight, the game was determined final. The defense recorded their 5th shutout of the season.
Making their first road trip of the season, QHS knew they would have their hands full. A poor playing surface and an Alton team that had already tied defending state champion and nationally ranked Edwardsville posed a huge challenge. The two teams battled for 100 minutes but in the end, neither team could get one past the GK. QHS outshot Alton 15-8, but only managed to put 2 shots on goal. It was the 4th shutout on the early season for QHS.
Missed opportunitites was the theme for the Blue Devils as they squandered several quality chances throughout the first half. Just before the half, QHS got on the board on a Chris Clay goal off a Riley Roth Assist. The 2nd half started promising as Riley Roth scored within the first minute of the half. Belleville East made it interesting when they scored the first goal of the season against the Blue Devils midway through the half. The game was called at the 68 minute mark due to weather.
Missouri power Rock Bridge was the final game of the Midwest Soccer Classic for the Blue Devils. Rock Bridge has made four straight appearances in the Missouri state final 4. A win and QHS would win the tournament. The first half saw both teams create chances to score, but they only close chance came off the foot of Blake Wingerter who hit the post late in the first half. As with the first game of the season, QHS got on the board early in the second half when Ben Mero scored on a header. Devin Watson and Blake Wingerter were both credited with assists on the play. QHS had several other quality chances, but the Rock Bridge GK was up to the task. Tylet Gerst came up HUGE with a save on a sure goal in the 2nd half giving the Blue Devils their third shutout in as many games and CHAMPIONSHIP of the Midwest Soccer Classic.
The second game of the season was circled as a revenge game for the Blue Devils. Helias beat QHS 3-0 last season and QHS was out to make ammends. Three first half goals allowed 24 Blue Devils to see action in the game. Chris Clay put QHS on the board early on a great slotted ball from Blake Wingerter. Hunter Hoschar scored the first of his two goals on an assist from Kolbe Rodemich and added a PK minutes later. Tyler Gerst and the Blue Devil defense recorded their 2nd shutout of the early season.
The Blue Devils opened the 2014 campaign with a new opponent to the schedule. After a first half of getting use to playing someone besides ourselves, QHS came out stron in the second half and scored early when Blake Wingeter found Bradyn Nokes off a corner kick. The Blue Devil defense did the rest as they limited GBN to few scoring chances. The game saw a 50 minute delay to to storms with just over 13 minutes to play.
