Four more wins for Tiger girls soccer http://unioneagle.com/2014/09/four-more-wins-for-tiger-girls-soccer/ http://unioneagle.com/2014/09/four-more-wins-for-tiger-girls-soccer/#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 15:53:01 +0000 http://unioneagle.com/?p=111174 Maggie Peterson burst for the ball on a first-half threat against Zimmerman.

Playing in front of a spirited “Senior Night” crowd  under the lights, Princeton girls soccer downed visiting Zimmerman 1-0 to raise their season record to 9-0.

The Thunder had the early chance when a free kick bounced off the cross bar in the first minute of action. Ashley Schramel, Maggie Peterson and Bridget Walter then turned the tide with shots on the Zimmerman net. At the 12:38 mark, Peterson took advantage of a turnover in the Thunder end and got the ball past the keeper for the lead.

Lydia Arens, Alanna Mattson and Taylor Laabs kept applying pressure by all generating good shots in that half. Right after another Zimmerman free kick went off the cross bar, it looked like Jordan Blomquist knocked in another Tiger goal during a scramble, but it was ruled the Thunder keeper had just enough control to wave off the goal.

• Princeton is tied with St. Michael and Rogers at the top of the Mississippi 8 standings after notching two more conference victories last week. On Sept. 9, Kara Schramel scored off an Erica Schramel corner kick with five minutes to go to defeat host Big Lake 1-0.

Tigers Larkin Walter and Bridget Walter scrap for control in front of the Thunder net in the 1-0 win over Zimmerman Sept. 15.

“Big Lake packed in their defense the entire game– playing eight and nine around the box and making it difficult for us to get any close-range shots,” described Tiger Coach Pat Arens. “Their goalie also had a  great game against us with 20 saves”

On Sept. 11, the Tigers defeated rival Chisago Lakes 3-1. Mattson assisted on Peterson’s opening goal, then Haley Sandin sent a beautiful pass to Laabs who ripped a hard shot into the corner for a 2-0 lead.

“Chisago Lakes answered with a goal in the second half, but we were able to go back up by two when Lydia Arens took a long-range shot that Larkin Walter was able to deflect into the goal,” noted Coach Arens. “Eden Betzler made 12 saves– several being of the outstanding variety, including one right before halftime.”

• The Tigers finished off a long Saturday road trip by knocking off Two Harbors 7-0. Mattson scored twice for PHS, with solo goals added by Laabs, Blomquist, Ash. Schramel, Larkin Walter and K. Schramel.

Mississippi 8 Girls Soccer: Princeton 3-0, 9-0; St. Michael-Alb. 3-0, 7-1; Rogers 3-0, 6-1; Chisago Lakes 2-1, 4-3; Monticello 1-2, 4-3-1; Buffalo 1-2, 2-4-1; North Branch 1-2, 2-5; St. Francis 1-2, 2-6; Big Lake 0-3, 2-5-1; Cambridge-Isanti 0-3, 1-6.

The Tigers nearly tripled up the total yardage output (338 to 118), but three turnovers kept the Hunters in the game.

The win sets up a great matchup at Princeton High this Friday when Chisago Lakes comes to town. The Tigers and Wildcats are out in front in the Mississippi 8 Red Division at 3-0 after C.Lakes knocked off Duluth East 41-0 last week. The ‘Cats are also the defending champs in the division.

At Duluth, Princeton capped off a fast 89-yard possession when Tanner Palmborg scored on a 21-yard run just into the second quarter. An interception on the next PHS series set up an 18-yard TD catch by Denfeld. The Tigers answered back with a 10-yard scoring reception by Palmborg, but Denfeld tied it with 24 seconds left in the half by going 59 yards in three minutes.

Princeton regained the lead for good when a bad snap on Denfeld’s second punt attempt of the second half resulted in a safety. Wyatt Dahlheimer made it 23-14 when he punched it in from three-yards out early in the fourth quarter. Luke Warren picked off a Hunter pass, then the Tigers went 60 yards in four plays, capped by a 5-yard Dylan Aurens’ TD run.

Cody Schuelke rushed 11 times for 98 yards, and Dahlheimer finished with 46 ground yards. Sam Archer tossed for 125 yards, including hooking up with Eric Norman on a 52-yard connection.

Mississippi 8 Football: RED: Princeton 3-0; Chisago Lakes 3-0; Big Lake 1-2; Monticello 1-2; Duluth Denfeld 0-3; North Branch 0-3. BLUE: Cambridge-Isanti 3-0; Rogers 3-0; St. Michael-Alb. 3-0; St. Francis 1-2; Buffalo 0-3; Duluth East 0-3.

Gloege gets call from hometown hall of fame http://unioneagle.com/2014/08/gloege-gets-call-from-hometown-hall-of-fame/ http://unioneagle.com/2014/08/gloege-gets-call-from-hometown-hall-of-fame/#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:53:31 +0000 http://unioneagle.com/?p=110759 From the early years of John Gloege’s 33 years as a teacher and coach in Princeton, a story made the rounds about the time Gloege took the high school basketball team to his hometown of Glenwood for a scrimmage at Christmas break.
As the story goes, Gloege joked with his players that, “No, the G in the middle of the floor doesn’t stand for Gloege.”
It was good for a laugh then, but now the school will be giving him a special honor.
On Sept. 20, Gloege will be inducted into the school’s initial class of its hall of fame.
A 1974 graduate of Glenwood High School (now Minnewaska High School, with Starbuck and Villard included), Gloege still holds the school scoring record in basketball with 1,589 points.

John Gloege

John Gloege

He earned 16 letters there, participating in baseball, track and golf in the spring of his sophomore year.
“I didn’t make many practices that year,” he said.
He was an all-conference performer seven times, three each in basketball and baseball.
Gloege then enrolled at St. Cloud State University, planning to play basketball, but a medical condition kept him from that and he went out for the baseball team. He ended up lettering three times and played on conference championship teams with some players from Princeton.
Then he came to Princeton in the fall of 1979 and taught and coached here until October 2012.
Gloege was head basketball coach for 15 years and had two stints of playing for the town baseball team.
He was the junior varsity baseball coach for 11 years, coached ninth-grade football and middle school volleyball, was head golf coach for about 12 years and has been with the golf program here for about 20 years, where he is now an assistant.
Gloege was also the Legion baseball coach for 19 years, following in the footsteps of the legendary Howard Solheim, and compiled a record of 379-237, as well as a record of 43-12 in playoff games. His teams had unbeaten streaks of 47 and 34 in league games and his teams had a 74-24 record from 1981 through 1983.
In a Union-Eagle story about his retirement from the Legion job, Gloege said he wanted to devote more time to golf. And two years later he won the men’s title at Princeton Golf Club.
Eighteen years ago a player he had coached in basketball and Legion baseball, Brian Dorr, contacted him about refereeing together in basketball.
“I remember him coming to talk about it at the old middle school and we sent out some letters,” Gloege said last week. “We had eight games that first year and it built to 22 and then to 35.”
Gloege has now refereed in many state basketball tournaments, refereed high school football for 18 years, officiated volleyball the past eight years and has umpired slow pitch softball for many years.
Golf has taken over as his biggest passion, and he plays at many courses around Minnesota, as well as taking winter trips to play in warmer climates.
Labeled a perfectionist by many of his former players, and by those with whom he plays golf, he was known as a hard worker in Glenwood as a youth.
Dave Moe, a friend from Glenwood who nominated Gloege for the hall of fame, saw Gloege’s dedication at an early age. Moe, three years older than Gloege, would walk to middle school basketball practice.
“He was in fourth grade and I’d see him out in the driveway shooting baskets,” Moe said. “I was impressed. I can’t imagine how many baskets he shot.”
Bill Neuenfeldt, now of Fort Smith, Arkansas, was Gloege’s catcher on Legion and town team baseball teams and also played against him in college.
“He had what we call stick-to-it-iveness,” Neuenfeldt said last week. “And the guy was as versatile a player as I’ve ever played with. He could play any position.”
Jack Stackpool, a member of the basketball coaches hall of fame in Minnesota, was Gloege’s high school coach.
“When I went from Foley to Glenwood, we started an elementary basketball program and John was in sixth grade,” Stackpool said. “He stood out immediately.
“He was very skillful and very dedicated. He was a gym rat – first on the floor and last off.”
Stackpool noted that there was no three-point rule when Gloege played, saying his point total would have been even higher.
“And what a fine young man he was,” he said. “What a role model for young athletes.”
One basketball season in high school Gloege and future University of Minnesota star and professional player Mark Olberding went at it for the conference scoring title, Gloege barely losing out late in the season.
“He was so competitive … but not in a bad way,” Moe said about Gloege.
Moe and Gloege ended up rooming together in college at St. Cloud State.
“I was kind of like an older brother,” Moe said. “I think his mother liked it that I was his roommate.
“We played a lot of poker and ate a lot of House of Pizza pizza. I think we ate pizza from that place seven straight nights one year.”
Moe will introduce Gloege the night of Sept. 20 at the Lakeside Ballroom in Glenwood.
“It’s something I will be proud to do,” he said.
Gloege said it will be a night to remember.
“It will be wonderful,” he said. “It’s a special place, the place where I grew up and where I watched those good basketball teams of the middle ‘60s play. Those guys were my heroes.
“I’ll feel very honored.”
Having said that, Gloege headed to the golf course in Princeton, pursuing a passion for that sport that has deepened in his retirement years.
By all accounts, he had that same passion for playing and coaching, extending from Glenwood to St. Cloud State to Princeton, a passion that has earned him a place in his hometown’s hall of fame.

Princeton’s 1974 Boys of Summer http://unioneagle.com/2014/08/princetons-1974-boys-of-summer/ http://unioneagle.com/2014/08/princetons-1974-boys-of-summer/#comments Fri, 01 Aug 2014 19:08:44 +0000 http://unioneagle.com/?p=110549 IMG_0556

 

One of the early teams in what some refer to as the “Golden Age of Baseball” in Princeton was the 1974 American Legion baseball team that qualified for the State tournament. Last Friday  night some members of that team gathered for a 40-year reunion in Princeton. In the back  row are Ken ”Buzz” Johnson, Pat Tierney, Pete Steinhagen, Tom Rogde, Dave Mingo and Dan Lofgren. In front are Mark Enger, Craig Remus, Mike Kapsner, John Kapsner and Keith Julson. Others on the team were Steve Bakken, Mike Solheim, Kevin Young, Brad Blankholm, Paul Trunk, Stu Remus and Kevin VanHooser. 

  Back then only one team from District 10 went to State, not four as was the case later. Princeton beat Hopkins for the district title and then beat Moorhead 4-0 in the first game at the State tournament in New Ulm. Princeton then took a 5-0 lead over St. Paul Attucks Brooks on the second day, with MLB Hall of Famer Paul Molitor in the Attucks Brooks lineup. But defensive miscues cost the team in a 7-6 loss to Attucks Brooks, which went on to win the State championship. Twenty minutes after that loss, Princeton had to play Sleepy Eye and lost 2-0, thus being eliminated from the tournament. A number of players from the 1974 team went on to play college baseball– three of them at St. Cloud State where they won two conference championships.

You couldn’t have asked for a better preparatory weekend for this week’s playoff opener when the Princeton American Legion baseball squad won its own invitational tournament with a perfect 3-0 showing. The team’s solid play was capped off in dramatic fashion when Nick Zeroth came home on a suicide squeeze to defeat Rogers in Sunday night’s championship battle at Solheim Veterans Stadium.

Zeroth also got the win on the mound against Rogers who is a Mississippi 8 partner of the Tigers during the high school season.

Princeton opened action with an 8-4 win over Cloquet on a beautiful Friday night for ball. Sam Archer delivered six quality innings, striking out five Lumberjacks while scattering five hits. Tanner Kinney got the save with one strikeout in the seventh.

In Saturday night’s semifinals, Princeton defeated Marshall 8-2 behind six innings from Dalton Mattson. Hallbeck struck out the side in the seventh to pick up the save. Archer had two RBI, and Kinney walked twice and scored two runs in the victory.

 

Sam Archer struck out five Cloquet batters in six quality innings of pitching in the Princeton Invite opener July 18.
