Mustang Soccerjocks Upset Top Ranked duPont Manual 2-0 In Semi-Finals Of South Oldham Invitational Tournament

The Brossart Mustang got that definitive big win they have been looking for this season on Thursday night, upsetting the state's top ranked soccer team, the duPont Manual Rams 2-0 in the semi-finals of the South Oldham Invitational Tournament. The Rams are the defending State Runner-ups losing in last year's championship game to Lexington Dunbar.

Jimmy Uebel scored with 7:17 left on the clock, and Troy Cooper (12 saves for the game) blocked the potential tying score. Josh Kidney sealed the deal with 38 seconds left in the game as the Mustangs hand the Rams their first loss of the season after eight consecutive wins over quality Louisville competition.

The whole team played great. They were going after the ball and getting the first touch.

The Mustangs have rebounded from last Saturday's 1-0 loss to St. Henry in the 9th/10th All "A" Classic Regional Finals with a 2-1 shootout victory over Providence, Indiana and the win over duPont Manual. They will face host South Oldham on Saturday night in the tournament's championship game.

DuPont Manual had won this tournament every year since its inception.

Over 200 Mustang Fans Turn Out For Football Team's Coming Out Party

It was one of those events that our fans just naturally turn out for. Be it a Mustang baseball, basketball, or soccer team playing in a Regional Tournament event, supporting a major fund-raiser, or gathering to comfort each other in the case of a death in our family.

Monday's gathering was to witness the "coming out party" of the newest member of the Mustangs' athletic family - our Junior Varsity Football Team.

They weren't disappointed. If you didn't know differently you would think that they were seasoned veterans. At no time while watching this team play did the theme song from the "Bad News Bears" pass through my mind. Our teamwas sharp, disciplined, competitive, professional, good-lookin' and proud. While this team will not be measured by wins and losses, in an interview following the contest, quarterback Andrew Heeg was distressed that his team had lost the game. The coaching staff was cautiously optimistic about our performance, and Rick Woeste, the man who spearheaded the formation of the football project was proud of what he saw.

Brett Moss put the new program in the record books at 5:29pm when he gathered in the Holy Cross kickoff and scampered up field to establish good field position for our first set of downs in the opening seconds in the infancy of our football program. Back-to-back first downs early in the second quarter would set Tony Woeste up to score our program's first touchdown ever and the Mustangs were within two pointsat 8-6. A late first-half Indians touchdown took a bit of wind out of our sails as we found ourselves trailing 16-6 at intermission. Holy Cross capitalized on a Mustangs fumble in the 3rd period, converting the misque into a touchdown, making ita 22-6 ballgame, after which Brossart answered on a breakaway run by Timmy Butts, our school's new sports icon and fan favorite. The PAT (Point/s After Touchdown) failed and the final score ended up 22-12.

The football program won over a lot of new fans today and in my wanderings among our student section I heard a few rumblings of "I'm going to play football next season."

Congratulations to Coach Ollier and his Football Mustangs!

We're Proud Of Our Team!!!

All "A" regional Champs rained out in Richmond

Our All "A" 2006 Regional champion boys golf team traveled to Richmond this past weekend only to play a few holes and then head home after a complete wash out due to thunderstorms and ensuing rains. All 5 players (Niemeyer, Ruberg, Heineke, Heeb, and Hertzenberg) were on the course when the lighting began and the skys blackened. One solid horn sent the entire field heading for the clubhouse, never to return to the course.

The team has played well in the early parts of the season, defeating Campbell County and upsetting Highlands 151-152. The regular season continues this week for the Mustangs.

Mustang Golfers Nip Highland in 151-152 Photo Finish

Over the years the trademark of a Barb Kohls coached Mustangs Golf Team has been their uncanny knack of rising to the occasion and shooting their best golf in big matches.
She has the regional championship trophies to prove it.
Wednesday was no exception as the Mustangs faced the regional favorite Highlands Bluebirds.

Senior Bryan Niemeyer shaved ten strokes off of his performance in the Mustangs' romp over Campbell County back on Monday and shot even par golf with the chips on the table versus the revered Bluebirds on Wednesday. Niemeyer clocked in with 7 pars, 1 birdie, and only 1 bogey for his nine-hole total. The key round of the day might have been shot by Jake Heeb who recorded a two-over 37. Brandon Heineke reported home just one stroke higher at three-over 38, and Sophomore Curtis Ruberg completed the sum total of the scorers of record with a 41. Sophomore Zach Hertzenberg also fired a 41, and Chad Steffen a 45 to round out the Mustangs' overall performance.

The win improves our team's mark to 2 wins and 1 loss as the guys head to Richmond on Saturday to compete for the All "A" State Championship. Tee time at the Big Golf Dance is estimated to be around 12 noon.
Barb's boys will look to pull another rabbit out of their hat on Saturday.
Don't count them out.

Mustang Golfers Earn Trip To Richmond For Inauguaral All "A" State Golf Tournament

By capturing the first ever 8th Region All "A" Classic last week, the Mustangs earn a ticket to the All "A" State Golf Tournament to be played on August 19th at the Arlington Golf Club, in Richmond, Kentucky. Brossart (321) defeated Newport Central Catholic (361), St. Patrick (385), Williamstown (399) and Mt. Olivet Deming (DNF) to claim the title. It was the Junior duo of Brandon Heineke and Curtis Ruberg who carried the day for the Mustangs, posting even par 71 and seven over 78 scores respectively. Heineke was two-over at the turn and then blitzed the back nine, recording a two-under par 33, giving him an even-par 71 for the round, earning him medalist honors. Ruberg struggled on the front nine, finding himself seven-over at the turn, but shot even-par golf on the backside sending him to the clubhouse with a 78. Bryan Niemeyer, the Catholic Cup Champion only a day early, "bounced" off that performance, struggling on the front nine with a 47, but then righting the ship with a 40 on the back nine. Jake Heeb rounded out the Mustang scoring with a 91. As a team the Mustangs shaved two strokes off of their Catholic Cup performance on Monday.

288 Turn Out In Support Of Nathan Seiter Memorial Scholarship Fund

Perfect weather conditions greeted the 288 golfers who played in Saturday's Nathan Seiter Memorial Golf Outing atHickory Sticks Golf Course. Clear, Fast, and 84 degrees was the official log on Saturday's conditions. Everything went off smoothly and the turnover occured about nine minutes sooner than at last year's inaugural effort. Thanks to Matt Lloyd and the Mustangs who contributed to the speedy turnover! Joe Heil and his staff from Barleycorn's did a great job in feeding the golfers and the staff, and Backroads kept the party going into the early morning hours, rockin the night away with such crowd favorites as Love Shack, Walkin on Sunshine, and Crazy For You. The most touching moment of the day came at the very end when a very special encore production by the lead female vocalist and the guitarist Brian Lauer of "What's Goin' On" was dedicated to Nathan Seiter. This was joined in enthusiastically by the handful of remaining revelers, family, and friends. The major raffle prize of $1,000 was won by a friend of Coach Scott Code and the three live auction items sold for premium prices. Thanks to all who helped in any way to make Saturday a reality and a success. If you missed it, you missed out - See You Next Year!

Nathan Seiter was Bishop Brossart's premiere athlete and is the holder of our Mustangs Basketball All-Time Career Leading Scorer Record. He was tragically killed in a automobile accident on November 30th, 2004.
