Preseason Thoughts - Central Ohio

Anyone with any thoughts on central Ohio?

All four district winners should be strong again this year - Pick North, Gahanna, Dublin Jerome, Olentangy Liberty. They always reload.

I was interested in seeing how Coffman would bounce back from a down year but I heard their stud Abby Steiner (Kentucky commit) isn't playing HS ball this year.

Talked to a friend who was at the EIS tournament at Spindler last week which had some decent teams - Darby, Thomas Worthington, Canal, New Albany, Grove City. TW will miss having DeLuca (graduated) and may be in for a rebuilding year with a new coach, but still had good results. Heard Grove City's best striker isn't playing either.

Anybody else wanna share their thoughts?

After her ACL tear last year I'm not surprised that she is skipping the HS season. I'll actually be surprised if she plays more than a year at Kentucky. As good of a soccer player she is, she is that much better on the track and is one of the most gifted sprinters to ever come out of Ohio. She is still a long way from reaching her apogee as a sprinter. I would expect her to be running for SEC championships at some point in her collegiate career.

She is a freak athlete, that is for sure. I think she finished 1st in 3 events at the track state champs? I had a girl tell me that Steiner was playing ECNL this fall instead of HS - not that she was taking the whole season off, which is what I would have expected.

Gahanna returns 9 starters from last year's 18-1-2 team. One of the nine is recovering for ACL surgery and might not make it back.

Saw some teams at EIS last weekend and thought Canal looks fast and physical.

Canal should be strong again. They will miss Alyssa Edwards, but have a ton of speed and a loaded sophomore class. There is another Edwards girl who could be even better than her sister. I don't think they will fly under anyone's radar this year.

Gahanna will have another fine year this year.

Any scrimmage updates? Central ohio posters are rare here it seems.

I've seen a few games / teams. I haven't seen any team that is a lock for the final 4 in this region. Teams that defend well and have a good coach can go along way.

Thomas Worthington already lost their new coach, as well. Not sure how that will affect them.

I haven't heard much about Jerome.

What happened with TW coach? Thought they looked alright at EIS, given that they graduated a lot and were up for a rebuilding season.

I've heard Orange is vastly improved this season. Don't know the result but they played Gahanna well in a scrimmage.

Davidson over Olentangy surprises me a little.

Heard Canal had the better of Gahanna in their scrimmage but couldn't convert their chances and got caught twice on counters.

Pick North looks really strong and has a transfer in who is already committed to Tennessee.

I haven't seen any write ups from ThisWeek Sports yet. I hope the writers continue to do that because girls soccer is all I ready care about.

Curious about the TW coach too. I googled his name this morning and nothing online about him leaving.

It was actually Orange 3, Darby 2

He left due to some issue with retirement dollars and there was a negative effect if he coached.

Went to the Dispatch website to look at a few box scores. Clicked through three then blocked unless I subscribe. What a joke.

Anyway.

Westerville North 2 - 0 Grove City
Bradley 4 - 1 Davidson
UA 4 - 0 Thomas Worthington

Central Ohio Upsets/Shocks

So far we've seen several central ohio games that have been closer than they should have been or just flat out upsets.

Thoughts on these games?

Here are my biggest upsets:

Upper Arlington 3, Canal 1 -- I expected a Canal win
Bradley 1, Liberty 0 -- Did anyone see that coming?
Pick North 3, Davidson 2 -- how was this game so close? Esp after Davidson's 4-1 loss to Bradley last week?
Thomas Worthington has 2 losses already - and they aren't close games.
Gahanna 2, Granville 2 -- Gahanna opens with a tie? What?

Would love to hear how some of these games have gone - if anyone has seen them.

Granville at Gahanna one of the worst officiated games I've ever seen. I've seen a lot of games to base that on.

Lots of chaos already. Granville is a good team so I don't think a draw is the worst thing for Gahanna. Definitely surprised by Canal, OL results. TW is in store for a long season it appears.

I agree with all of that. I thought Orange would concede goals but I thought they would put some up themselves. Maybe Jerome is the team to watch.

Granville is an excellent D2 team. Just 326 girls. 9-12, but they excel in all sports. Gahanna is the best team I have seen GHS play this early in the season in several years. Granville has excellent track teams, and many of the soccer girls run track. Gahanna is one of the few teams in recent years that could run with Granville. I have no doubt Gahanna will go far in the post-season tournament. Granville actually led 2-1 until late in the game.
The comment about the officiating was correct. Not-so-good.

new chat board

Please delete if this is not allowed, and it's probably duplicative effort, but I would really like a place that just discusses central ohio as it seems to be more Cincinnati-area on this board.

If you're interested in Central Ohio Girls HS Soccer ONLY -- my new board is OHGirlsHSSoccer.boards.net
