This was followed by two second-half goals from Trevon Mattson (ROCORI) and Jose Rubio (ROCORI) to win 5-1.

Game two, versus Sartell set the stage for the rest of the day, one cliffhanger after another. The Roosters took the lead at 10 minutes from a goal by Rodriguez. However, with 10 seconds to go in the first half, Sartell scored to tie the game. In the second half, a goal by a Sartell player proved to be the deciding factor, giving Chain of Lakes a 2-1 victory.

Game four, versus St. Cloud Tech was another close game. Rodriguez and Hoekstra each scored to give the team another 2-1 victory.

Chain of Lakes Middle School team

After two tough losses, the Chain of Lakes Middle School soccer team got back on the winning track with a 1-0 victory over Glencoe/Silver Lake Thursday, Sept. 19. GSL dominated the game playing in the Roosters half of the field 90 percent of the time, but all it took was a break-away goal by Diego Kloos (ROCORI) near the end of the first half. That goal, as well as great goal keeping by Jonathan Kloos (ROCORI), Andrew Zwiefel (Paynesville) and Christian Rodriguez (ROCORI) who combined for the shutout.

Chain of Lakes girls’ soccer

Danzl and defense too much for Glencoe Silver Lake varsity

Glencoe Silver Lake varsity girls’ soccer team could not find a way to stop Kally Danzl (ROCORI) as she would get a hat trick in the first half. Danzl’s first goal was assisted by Emily McCoy (home school) who put the ball in a lane that got behind the GSL defense and Danzl was off to the races for her first goal at the 24-minute mark. Nine minutes later, Danzl would have her second goal, this time from an assist from Alexandra Stahlberg (ROCORI). COL kept high pressure in the GSL end, and just before half time, Danzl would intercept a pass, get past the GSL defense, and notch her third goal of the game. Stahlberg would score the loan goal of the second half from 24 yards out. Luca Rosemeier (ROCORI) and Esmae Heveron (ROCORI) would combine for the shutout.
