High School Team Wins Loeffler Indoor Tournament
For the first time in recent memory, a high-school based squad won the annual Loeffler Indoor Tournament.
2014 tri-captain Michael Reid’s strike 1 minute into golden-goal time gave his side the upset victory over a star-studded alumni team, in the finals. Each team scored in the final minute of regular time. The Staples squad was seeded 4th in the 4-team event, while the top-rated alumni side had been undefeated.
The tournament — which raised several hundred dollars for the Albie Loeffler Scholarship Fund — featured a team with 6 Dasbachs: Kurt, his 2 brothers, his son Shane, and 2 nephews.
The winning team included Reid, Diego Alanis, Kenji Goto, Charlie Leonard, Yousef Shahin, Kyle Zajec, and 2013 graduates Noah Bender and Greg Shikowitz.
The silver medalists consisted of Mike Carey ’01, Matt Geringer ’05, James Hickok ’13, Kyle Martino ’99, Chris Meinke ’05, Will Meinke ’13, Igor Pikayzen ’06, Ben Root ’12.
