  Division II State Championship Game
   Dayton Carroll 3, Richfield Revere 2

Division II State Champion
Dayton Carroll High School


Championship Recap
Senior forward Carl Petkoff’s goal in the 75th minute proved to be the deciding factor as Dayton Carroll (19-2-2) defeated Richfield Revere 3-2 to capture the 2010 Div. II boys state soccer title Friday at Columbus Crew Stadium.

The Patriots took a 1-0 lead into the locker room at halftime, with a goal scored in the 25th minute by sophomore Zach Zwiesler. Another goal by senior Justin Chu in the 55th minute gave Carroll a two-goal lead, one that could not be surmounted by the Minutemen.

Richfield Revere (20-3-0) quickly cut the lead in half with a 57th minute goal by junior Colin Romisher. The comeback was halted as Petkoff’s ultimately game-clinching goal put the Patriots ahead 3-1. Revere did score again off a Ben Deighton penalty kick in the 76th minute, but the Minutemen were unable to muster another goal to tie the game.

Both teams took advantage of their very limited scoring opportunities, as the teams combined for only eight total shots on goal. Carroll had five shots on goal to Revere’s three shots on goal. Carroll tallied one save in the game, while Revere had two.

The victory marks Carroll’s third state title in school history and the second in three years, as the Patriots also finished first in 2008.

Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy


Championship Recap

No. 2 Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy (18-3-1) avenged a state final loss from a year ago to Worthington Christian by downing the seventh-ranked Warriors 3-2 Friday at the 2010 Boys Div. III State Soccer Championships at Crew Stadium in Columbus.

After Worthington Christian (16-5-2) tied the score at two in the 53rd minute with a goal by junior Ben Tjoelker, CVCA senior Evan Crocker took the ensuing kickoff from senior Jack Thompson, spun around a defender and struck the game-winning goal 10 seconds later from about 15 yards out.

Worthington Christian, which opened the scoring with a goal from senior midfielder Trent Smith in the 21st minute, controlled possession and applied constant pressure for much of the game. The Warriors outshot the Royals 20-8, but were held at bay by CVCA sophomore goalkeeper Nick Ciraldo, who recorded 10 saves. The Royals made the most of their scoring opportunities, netting three goals on four shots on goal. CVCA junior forward Sachem Wilson collected a goal, while Thompson pitched in a goal and two assists.
