TMP soccer records first mercy rule in program's history

Thomas More Prep-Marian senior defender Alivia Inlow has experienced her fair share of losing.
In her first three years with TMP’s girls’ soccer, the Monarchs were 4-39, suffered twice as many mercy-rule losses than they did wins and scored just 31 goals.

This 2013 season has come as a breath of fresh air for the hardened veteran.

Monday was a perfect example of TMP’s growth when the squad mercy ruled Wichita-Word of Life 10-0 in 56 minutes — the first mercy rule in the program’s history.

It was a perfect milestone to make TMP’s Senior Day even more special, as TMP improved to 4-6 — one victory away from tying the school record for wins. Word of Life dropped to 4-6.

“It’s really cool to watch what it has become,” Inlow said. “My freshman year, we only had two wins, and now we are mercy ruling

TMP soccer only has been around since 2006, but the program seems to finally have hit its stride buoyed by strong freshman and sophomore classes.

TMP not only recorded the program’s first mercy rule, the Monarchs also broke the single-season scoring record of 24 goals in 2008’s 5-9 season. TMP has scored 26 this season.

The success seemingly oozed out of the Monarchs on Monday, as the girls smiled, giggled and let out screams of excitement throughout the match.

“We were just out there to have fun,” said freshman Kelsie DeWitt, who scored a hat trick Monday.
It took 10 minutes to break the deadlock, but after that, the game seemed to snowball in the Monarchs’ favor.

DeWitt scored the opening goal at the start of the 11th minute off a cross from classmate Rachel Hamel.

Hamel added another goal two minutes later after drawing a foul near the corner of Word of Life’s box. Hamel took the free kick and arced it above Word of Life goalkeeper LaShae Rolle.

DeWitt scored the third on a breakaway, shooting it low past the approaching goalkeeper in the 22nd minute.

Sophomore Adrianna Staab crossed the ball to classmate Alyssa Keil, who headed it in for the fourth goal in the 26th minute.

Fewer than two minutes later, Rolle stopped a shot by TMP, but accidentally rolled across the goal line, triggering an own goal.

The Monarchs went up 6-0 in the 37th minute, as Hamel received a cross from freshman Tyra Younie and found the back of the net.

In the second half, TMP kept up its furious attack intent on obtaining the mercy rule.

“We’ve had it done to us, so we really wanted to feel how it was to be on the other side of it and give it to somebody else,” DeWitt said. “It was great.”

Sophomore Laurel Hageman got it started in the second half, crossing the ball into the box in the 47th minute. Keil collected it and kicked it in.

In the 53rd minute, freshman Annaka Applequist got the ball from DeWitt and kicked it between Rolle’s legs to put TMP up 8-0. It was a special goal since it also was Applequist’s 15th birthday.

In the next three minutes, TMP added two more goals — one from DeWitt on an assist from Younie and the final from Staab on an assist from DeWitt to end it.

“I just feel like the new girls coming in have really stepped up and taken on the part of playing have to play a higher caliber,” Inlow said. “I think it’s a completely new team, and they are here to play soccer and go hard.”

TMP will face Class 6A Wichita North at 4 p.m. Thursday at TMP Field.

TMP head coach Darryl Wellbrock said he expects North to be quite the challenge, but the combination of Monday’s joy and

Thursday’s challenge should be the perfect mix to mentally prepare his squad for the 4-1A regional on Monday or Tuesday.

“I hope we go with the mentality and enthusiasm for the first round of regional games that we had here today,” Wellbrock said. “They are very capable of (winning) if they decide to show up.”

A first-round win in the regional would be another first for the program.
