Kaneland soccer finding more net

Three late-season contests provide skill showcase
KANELAND—Knight soccer might be finding a little groove, and not a moment too soon.

With the postseason challenge coming next week in the form of rival Sycamore on Oct. 23, the Knights met three opponents in the form of visiting Rochelle, host Plainfield East and host Yorkville.

After the 4-0 win over the Hubs, and a 3-3 tie against Southwest Prairie Conference foe PE, coupled with the 1-0 victory against the Foxes, the Knights are now 8-5-4 and 5-2-2 in Northern Illinois Big XII action. Kaneland has also won seven of its last nine outings.

Last Thursday’s clash with the Hubs had Kaneland post two goals each in the first and second halves of play. Just 20 seconds into the game, Tyler Siebert scored on an assist from Igancio Toscano, and the Knights followed it up with a Toscano goal with 4:34 left off a Kyle Romas assist. In the second half, goals by Toscano with 9:05 left off a Siebert assist and a goal from Arsim Azemi off an assist from Adhurim Azemi sealed the match’s fate with 3:12 to go.

Against the Bengals, Siebert scored with 10:41 to go off an Ivan Bohorquez assist for the first half goal, but KHS found itself down 2-1 at the break. Playing a man down in the second half, the Knights found a goal at the cleat of Arsim Azemi off an Anthony Parillo assist with 36:46 go go and another successful Azemi-Parillo combo with 4:41 to go for a 3-2 lead before PE tied the game in the last minute.

Facing off against rival Yorkville on Tuesday under the Campbell Field lights, Siebert’s goal in just the fourth minute of the game proved to be the difference, as KHS locked down defensively to pitch a shutout. Parillo provided the assist.

The regular season finale takes place against visiting Sycamore on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 4:30 p.m.

Ups and downs

KANELAND—Coach Scott Parillo’s Soccer team had an up and down week, securing a road win over IMSA 9-1, but falling to conference foe DeKalb in Barbland Tuesday by a score of 3-1.

KHS now sits at 3-3-1, 0-1 in conference play.

Against IMSA, the Knights lit up the scoresheet. Anthony Parillo had two goals and three assists, Drew Franklin had two goals, Angel Escontrias, Ivan Bohorquez and Michael Meisenger each had a goal and an assist, while Adhurim Azemi and Kyle Romas each scored a goal.

Against DeKalb on Tuesday, Ignacio Toscano supplied the lone Knight goal when he scored on a header off an assist from Parillo.

Next up for the Knights is a home match against Morris today, before they travel to Geneva Monday.

2013 Soccer Preview: Seeking return to Sweet 16

Knights soccer wants to play up to last year’s level
KANELAND—It can be disappointing for a high school soccer squad to reach a sectional championship, only to fall short.

That’s just one way to look at it.

A more productive way is looking at how far talent can take you and what it can mean to the program.

Taking that tack, Kaneland High School soccer looks to accomplish big things in 2013 after a first-ever trip to a sectional title match and a 16-4-2 mark in 2012.

“In previous years, there were a lot of close matches we would have lost,” KHS coach Scott Parillo said. “But then we would win 2-1, instead of lose 2-1. East Moline United is 3A now; hopefully we get that far and that’s one less team we’ll have to worry about.”

Parillo’s crew doesn’t look to overstep the season on its way to similar heights.

“Everyone  is going to play at least  two positions.  The depth  is there. It’s  their time  to shine and take full  advantage  of this.” KHS soccer coach Scott Parillo

“Of course we’d love to be Sweet 16 again and hopefully go farther. We graduated nine players and have 11 returning, and that’s a good thing,” Parilllo said.

Knight captains are midfielders junior Ivan Bohorquez, Tyler Siebert (four-year varsity) and Anthony Parillo (four-year varsity).

“Anthony is up for All-American honors and is a preseason All-American and All-State selection. That fact that he’s up for All-American is remarkable, you can’t beat that. But, he wants to have fun. The seniors want to have fun and hope it turns out like last year,” Parillo said. “They’re cautiously optimistic the new guys will gel quickly.”

Outside of the steady middle of the pitch, the Kaneland crew has a new goalkeeper, replacing Marshall Farthing.

“JT Karr was the backup last year, and he’s getting his chance to shine this year. He’s got the most experience; he’s going to be the one and we’ll go from there,” Parillo said.

Jake Bilotta also serves at goal for the Knights. Forwards include Kyle Romas and James Bartholomew, while midfielders include Peter Jefferson, Siebert, Parillo, Adhurim Azemi, Don Seawall, Ignacio Toscano, Arsim Azemi, Drew Franklin, Bohorquez and Michael Meisinger.

Defenders look to be Kolin Limbrick, Ryan Longson, Curtis Thorson, Chris Van Dinther, Matt Vander Sande, Jack Wolf, Esteban Ochoa and Jason Carlquist.

“Everyone is going to play at least two positions. The depth is there. It’s their time to shine and take full advantage of this,” Parillo said.

The Northern Illinois Big XII provides some interesting scenarios for Parillo’s team.

“Yorkville is on the rise, they’re good. Morris is going to surprise some people, and of course DeKalb. Sycamore is one of the great unknowns, and Rochelle is, too,” Parillo said.

Kaneland begins the season on Friday, Aug. 30, in Algonquin Ill., at Jacobs High School.
