FENTON — Jack Twellman saw the opening and took the shot. And what a shot it
Twellman's 35-yard blast, into the upper-right corner of the net, highlighted a
solid effort as St. Louis University High knocked off CBC 2-0 on Saturday in
the title match of the 53rd annual CYC-Bob Guelker Memorial Soccer Tournament
at Anheuser-Busch Center.
SLUH, ranked fourth among Post-Dispatch large schools, improved to 12-1-1 and
avenged a 3-2 loss to the Cadets in defending their CYC-Guelker title.
Third-ranked CBC is 11-2-1.
Has Twellman ever hit a ball better? "Probably not," he said "I knew I hit it
well, but it's not like I was placing it. ... Coach tells us to aim for the
middle because the ball probably won't end up there anyway.''
The shot came with about 14 minutes to play and was the SLUH senior's second
goal of the match. In the first half, he converted a penalty kick to put the
Junior Billikens on top.
