Titan Boys Start Season at 3-1

Titan Boys Start Season at 3-1

Tuesday, March 29, 2011
Even with several new faces joining the varsity program, the Norris boys soccer team have turned in consistent performances while racing to a 3-1 start this season.In their first test as a new-look team, a tough Gretna squad came to town for the season opener. As the Titans worked to find their team chemistry, they gave up two first half goals to the Dragons. Regrouping at half, the Norris boys stepped up their game, but still conceded one more goal to end the match with a 0-3 loss and many lessons learned.There was no time to dwell on the loss, however, as the Titans took to the road the next night to face the Seward Bluejays at windswept Concordia University. Norris turned in a much-improved performance that evening, creating several opportunities on goal in the first half before senior LaRoy Cobb latched onto a well-timed through ball from freshman Ryan Bellinghausen. Cobb fired across the goalkeeper and into the side netting of the far post for a 1-0 halftime lead. Building on that momentum and some excellent possession passing, Cobb turned provider for Bellinghausen in the second half, with the freshman attacker netting his first goal of his Norris career to cap off scoring and a 2-0 win for the Titans. Norris goalkeeper Ramiro Gonzalez recorded his first shutout, with strong defensive play in front of him by senior Jake Garbison, and juniors Zach Tobey and Hunter Boe.Elkhorn South was the next opponent for the boys. With low temperatures and snow in the forecast, the Titans headed off to take on the newest addition to the Eastern Midlands Conference on their home turf. Building on the momentum of their previous win, the Titans displayed impressive passing through the midfield, featuring juniors Josh Kluka, Dillon Neukirch and Seth Nerud, as well as senior Taylor Adams and sophomore Clay Cobb. The breakthrough goal came once again from LaRoy Cobb, with the assist provided by Ryan Bellinghausen.Leading 1-0 at half, the Titans stepped up their efforts during the second segment, creating even more chances on goal. Unable to put another shot in the back of the net, the Titans paid the price when they gave up a goal off of a deflected Elkhorn South free kick with less than two minutes remaining to force overtime. The Titans maintained composure throughout the extra periods and ensuing snow, with junior Josh Kluka putting the game out of reach for the Storm with two long-range efforts that beat the Elkhorn South keeper over the top. LaRoy Cobb had the assist on Kluka's goal in the first overtime period, and goalkeeper Ramiro Gonzalez was the provider on Kluka's second score.The Titans returned home for their fourth match of the season to face another conference opponent, the Nebraska City Pioneers. Freezing temperatures welcomed the teams to Titan Stadium, but the scoring heated up after six minutes when LaRoy Cobb was assisted by Ryan Bellinghausen once again. Josh Kluka put his name on the score sheet as well after Cobb weaved his way through the Nebraska City defense and sent the ball across the penalty box where Kluka slotted it home past the keeper. In the second half, Cobb scored a solo goal, followed by senior Kyle Stolzer's strike after an assist by junior Hunter Boe.The next opponent for the Titans will be conference foe Elkhorn at home on Thursday, followed by a match-up against perennial powerhouse Pius X on Saturday. Come out and support the Titans!
