Irish soccer team is young, but tough
Even top-ranked girls’ soccer teams can get beat if the team’s mind is on another match. Rosemount girls’ soccer team learned that Tuesday, Oct. 6 against Robbinsdale Armstrong in a 3-1 loss.
The match they were waiting for is yearly rival Edina Thursday, Oct. 8. The game ended up a draw, 0-0 in overtime. So the Irish record sits at 11-1-1.
In the Robbinsdale Armstrong game, the Irish scored its only point in the third period with a sister combination. With an assist by freshman Julie Kasten, her senior sister Jeanne scored to tie the match.
But as coach Warren Hartzberg said, the Robbinsdale team kept fighting for a win....
But the season record is a winning one, 11-1-1.
Included in the season wins are a 2-1 victory over Apple Valley and a 3-1 win over Burnsville. Burnsville faced off with Apple Valley shutting the Eagles out 2-0.
A winning team has a goal tender that is effective.
For the Irish, it is freshman Christine Kennedy who has only allowed seven soccer balls to pierce into the net. Four of the games, she has sealed off the net to the opposing team.
The triangle of force comes from the tri-captains Nicole Johnson, Calleen Neary and Jeanne Kasten. Johnson leads the scoring for the team with 24 goals....
Another key player for the team is outside midfield defensive player Kristen Nokelby, an eighth grader who is part of the gifted athlete program.
Success in theatre is goal of Valley Park youth
Radio public service announcements ... acting classes, magic shows, theater productions. These certainly don’t sound like the activities of a typical 12-year-old, but for Allen Manning, a seventh grader at Scott Highlands Middle School, Rosemount, it’s all part of a day’s work.
Manning has been a serious actor since he was five years old. Now, with several major plays under his belt, (two with the Children’s Theatre of Minneapolis), he has high hopes for his future and a career in acting....
Manning began performing magic shows for schools and the community before he could read. His parents, Mike and Juanita Manning, in an effort to provide a creative outlet for their son, enrolled him in an acting class in Aberdeen, S.D., in 1983. According to Manning, “that’s how it all started.” He soon became a staple with the Act 2 Community Theatre in Aberdeen and achieved notoriety as the “play kid” at school.
Upon his family’s relocation to Rosemount two years ago, Manning became equally as involved with his dramatic activities here.
Currently, he is at work on his second performance with the Children’s Theatre of Minneapolis as Henny, a Dutch doll, in the production of “Raggedy Ann and Andy,” which runs through Nov. 7. Simultaneously, he is a member of the cast of Scott Highland’s fall play, “The Competition,” in which he portrays Marvin, a “first-class nerd,” in his words.
