North sweeps South in all-star soccer match

CHARLES TOWN — A select group of Marion County soccer players took to the field one last time Sunday as the North-South soccer game officially ended the 2013 season at Washington High School.

The girls’ game saw a lopsided match with the North squad taking home a 6-1 victory.

For Marion County, reigning player of the year Ivey Nucilli netted two goals for the North, while Gabi Mascaro added an assist.

“Although it was freezing this morning, it was great to watch all the seniors get together one last time and have some fun in their last high school soccer match,” said Fairmont Senior coach Ryann Moore, who coached with Bridgeport’s John Reese in the game.

The representatives from the county included Nucilli, Mascaro and Maddie Stevenski from Fairmont Senior, Breanna Wright of East Fairmont and Shelby King of North Marion.

A few of the girls had played together previously and Moore said it was nice for them to receive the chance to finish their careers together.

“Many of the Marion County girls played together on Marion County FC prior to high school so it was a nice reunion for them as well,” said Moore.

As for Moore, she enjoyed the opportunity to coach with Reese, who coached the team’s rival high school.

“It was an honor to get to spend the day coaching such hardworking players and to get to coach with John Reese,” she said. “I even got him to yell, ‘Go Bears.’”

The boys’ team, coached by coach of the year Fred Roman, won by a much closer score of 2-1.

Both goals came from Marion County products, with East Fairmont’s James Bolander and Fairmont Senior’s Ryan Rosier each getting a score. North’s Cody Bland nearly had a goal, missing the Marion County hat trick, or the “Marion trifecta,” as Roman called it.

“That would’ve been something for Marion County to do that,” said Roman. “We were well represented down there. It was a good, friendly game.”

After the North squad went up 2-0, the South came through with a goal, but Roman said the defense stayed strong.

“They scored with about 15 minutes left but the defense prevailed,” he said.

The team consisted of Bolander, Brett Metheny, Ian Hayhurst, Jason Mills and Connor Fitz of East Fairmont, Rosier and Jared Bartrung of Fairmont Senior, and Bland and Dylan Leary of North Marion.

Roman said the experience for him was a good one as coach and described it as “awesome.”

“Coming off the field knowing I had five kids out there and four others from Marion County, that’s all I ever wanted to do,” said Roman. “I want to coach good kids, no matter where they go to school. I told them what an honor and a privilege it was to coach some of the state’s best and that they will always have this experience no matter where they go after high school.”
