Sixth teen arrested in hazing investigation of Texas HS soccer team

An ongoing investigation of allegations of sexual assault and hazing among members of a Texas high school soccer team continued with the recent arrest of a sixth former team member.
In January, five Forney (Texas) High School athletes – four juveniles and 19-year old Jacob Fischer – were charged and arrested on charges of sexual assault.

On Nov. 29, as inForney.com and other outlets reported, 19-year old former soccer team member Tyler Teer was arrested on hazing charges and was booked and released from the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office.
The misdemeanor count carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA, another Forney soccer player accused Teer of throwing him to the ground and “inserting a finger between” the other student’s buttocks through his practice uniform in January 2017.
In February, sheriff deputies surprised Forney administration with a search warrant and seized evidence.
According to the affidavit, inForney.com reported, a parent initially reached out to school officials in December 2017 via an email to the soccer coach with allegations of sexual assault and rape. The allegations did not get reported to the KCSO until January 2018, per inForney.com.
Per WFAA, the cases against the juveniles have been resolved, with the details not made public.
The sexual assault case against Jacob Fisher still remains pending in Kaufman County’s Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 court, according to online court records obtained by inForney.com.
Authorities told inForney.com that the investigation revealed that many of the perpetrators “had also been victims themselves,” a strong indication that the sexual assaults as hazing had occurred at the school for multiple years.
A source with knowledge of the investigation told WFAA that the investigation into the actions of Forney High employees is still ongoing and “arrests are expected.”

St. Xavier continues aggressive climb in Week 12 Super 25 Boys Soccer Rankings

The Week 12 Super 25 Fall Boys Soccer rankings from USA TODAY High School Sports and United Soccer Coaches is out, and there is a bit of a shakeup at both ends of the poll
FULL RANKINGS: Super 25 Boys Soccer, Week 12
Two weeks ago, Louisville power St. Xavier was sitting at No. 23 in the polls. Now, for the second straight week, the Tigers are taking a seismic jump, this time up seven spots to No. 6, after beating Highlands (Fort Thomas, Ky.), 1-0, to captured the program’s 14th Kentucky state title.
Elsewhere, Cleveland (Rio Rancho, N.M.) is up nine spots to No. 14 this week after beating Mayfield (Las Cruces, N.M.) in double overtime to capture the New Mexico 5A state title.
Arapahoe (Littleton, Colo.) sky-rockets into the poll this week at No. 8, making its season debut after beating Super 25 mainstay Grandview (Boulder, Colo.) for the program’s first state title since 1997. Joining Arapahoe as the new entrants this week are No. 20 Seneca Valley (Harmony, Pa.), No. 21 Air Academy (Colorado Springs, Colo.), No. 22 Medina (Ohio), No. 23 La Salle Academy (Providence, R.I.) and No. 25 Chaminade (Mineola, N.Y.).
St. Benedict’s Prep (Newark, N.J.) remains the No. 1 team in the land, followed by a top five of No. 2 Naperville (Ill.) North, No. 3 Nauset (Eastham, Mass.), No. 4 Martin Luther King (New York, N.Y.) and No. 5 Marquette (Milwaukee) that remains unchanged.

VIDEO: Minn. soccer team wins state title on insane 60-yard, double-OT goal

U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis has seen its share of wild finishes this year, what with the Minnesota Miracle pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs  in January and the Eagles’ Super Bowl XLII win over the Patriots in February.
Now, the shiny new venue has quite the futbol highlight to add to stadium lore. Friday’s Minnesota Class A soccer championship game between The Blake School (Minneapolis) and Bemidji (MInn.) High School was scoreless through 80 minutes of regulation and 10 minutes of overtime.
To start the second OT, Blake sophomore Keegan James elected to boot the ball from centerfield, almost like a football kickoff.
And oh, did it ever work.

WE ARE SPEECHLESS! Keegan James with the unbelievable goal in the kickoff! The Blake Bears are your 2018 State Champs! Tune in SUNDAY on Minnesota Prep Spotlight for game highlights.

You can see James’ ball sail to the top right corner of the net, out of the reach of Bemidji goalkeeper Joe Fletcher.
The players’ reaction was as one would expect, given the play, the circumstances and the stakes.
“It was a feeling like no other,” James told the Bemidji Pioneer. “I was just happy. I was very tired at this point. Honestly, going 10 more minutes would’ve been very, very tough for my body, but I’m just happy we got it done.”
Per the Pioneer, the idea for the long shot came from teammate and senior captain Jake Lundberg, who said he had asked the referee if the play was legal.
“He’s like, ‘Why,’ and I was like, ‘Because we’re going to do that,’” Lundberg said. “And he goes, ‘All right,’ and winks at me. I know Keegan. He has a good shot that I knew would be able to get up and over, so I looked at Keegan and I’m like, ‘You’re shooting it off the kickoff.’ ”
From the middle of the Viking profile at midfield to the back of the net. Just how James, Lundberg and the Blake Bears drew it up. And they have a state title to show for it.
