10/9/15 USA vs Mexico Sat 9:30 pm on Fox Sports 1/HS Sectionals finals Sat/Euro Qualifying/Klopp to LP

Ok so soccer fans – its USA vs MEXICO Sat night, 9:30 on Fox Sports 1 for all the Marbles- I am hoping we have a 50/50 crowd though that is not what usually happens in LA.  But hopefully Sam’s Army and The Outlaws will come thru!!  Winner wins the CONCACAF CUP and advances to the Confederation’s Cup the year before the next World Cup. Win and the loss in the Gold Cup this summer and destruction at the hands of Brazil last month don’t matter. Lose and the leadership of US soccer and Jurgen Klinnsman’s role as Manager of the US team is in question as we head into World Cup Qualifications next month. To say Saturday night’s game is huge is an understatement. Click here to see the Dos a Zero features of the past – I was fortunate enough to have been at 3 of them in Chicago’s Gold Cup win, and Columbus twice.

High School Sectionals are in full throttle with championship games this weekend.  The #1 Ranked in the US and Indiana Carmel High Ladies (14-0-2) hosting Sectionals at CHS Murray Stadium –defeated Westfield 2-0 and will take on #8 Zionsville in the finals on Saturday at 7 pm. We have a ton of former Carmel FC’ers playing so go root them on.  The #6 ranked Carmel High Boys came back to defeat Guerin Catholic 4-2 Wed night and will face the Zionsville boys on Sat afternoon at 2 pm. Again 2 former Carmel FC’ers on the CHS squad.  If anyone wants my Session Ticket – I will be reffing all day Saturday just let me know and I will try to get it to you – save yu the $7.

Finally I know a bunch of Carmel FC and other local teams are headed to Zionsville for Soctoberfest this weekend. Good luck to all! I will have updates to the high school games and some Euro this weekend.  https://theoleballcoach.wordpress.com

Bring Your Own Pumpkin Fall Frolic On Oct 17 and Kristian Nicht Bobblehead Night

You can have your pumpkins and eat them too (well, kind of) on Saturday, October 17, when Indy Eleven will host “Fall Frolic” Night against Minnesota United FC, brought to you by myBMV.com, at Carroll Stadium. There will be plenty of incentive to arrive early, as the first 5,000 fans through the gates at 6:00 p.m. will receive a Kristian Nicht bobblehead courtesy of Central Indiana Honda Dealers!

Fans that bring their own pumpkins for the fun and games in the Fall Frolic edition of the pre-game Honda Fun Zone can walk up to the Carroll Stadium Box Office and get $3 off Endline section tickets (normally $15) and a free slice of pumpkin pie. In addition, Indy Eleven will host a Pumpkin Beer Tasting event ($10 pass, need ticket to the game) leading up to kickoff, featuring 11 spiced brews to sample, and be selling hot apple cider at the concessions.
