SOCCER: BECKLEY — To knock off defending state champion and perennial West Virginia boys high school soccer power Charleston Catholic in Saturday’s Class AA-A state championship game, it was going to take a monumental effort and perhaps a little luck.
Fairmont Senior got both.
Senior Caleb Anselene poked a loose ball into the net off a corner kick from twin brother Justin Anselene with just more than three minutes to play to provide the difference and the Polar Bears beat the Irish 3-2 to claim their first state title in program history.
The Polar Bears (21-3-1) played with 10 players for the final 23 minutes after junior Aaron Saymansky was issued a red card for shoving Catholic’s Kendy Peyton to the ground. Catholic’s Lucas Gocke was also kicked out of the game with just more than 13 minutes remaining in the second half, but because he was issued two yellow cards as opposed to a straight red card, the Irish did not have to play a man down.
Despite still being a player down, the ejection lit a fire under the Polar Bears that propelled them to a state championship.
“It seemed like right after that we picked our game back up,” Fairmont Senior coach Jim DeNardi said. “We started playing better. We started pushing the defensive back line up and we were getting our offense together again after that stretch of not doing much but clearing the ball out of our end. Once that happened and we started getting our offense back, I thought we had the better opportunities.”
Fairmont Senior opened the scoring in the first half when sophomore Ike Swiger beat Catholic goalkeeper Ethan Malinowski with a shot in the 19th minute. Catholic (19-1-1) responded with a goal from junior Luke McKown two minutes later.
The Polar Bears went back on top late in the half when Caleb Anselene assisted on a goal to Justin Anselene in the 36th minute.
“I thought Fairmont Senior played a good game,” said Catholic assistant coach Sam Fox, standing in for head coach Dom Cipollone, who declined to take part in the postgame interview session. “They possessed the ball well and from our perspective, we never got in front of the game. We were always playing from behind and even when we were a man up, we felt the momentum and felt like we were going to get that next goal, and it just never came.”
Catholic senior Joey Trupo, the Gazette-Mail Kanawha Valley Player of the Year, was held scoreless for a second consecutive game but did have one very good opportunity in the first half on a diving header that was saved by Fairmont Senior’s Childers at point-blank range.
Saturday’s game was Fairmont Senior’s third appearance in a boys' soccer state title game. The Polar Bears lost to Parkersburg 1-0 in 2005 and fell 5-0 against Charleston Catholic in 2013, when the current Polar Bear seniors were freshmen.
For Charleston Catholic, it was the first state championship game loss for the program in six appearances (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014).

Second-round shootout Fairmont Senior defeats Keyser 58-42 in playoffs
BY SEAN MCNAMARA TIMESWESTVIRGINIAN
FAIRMONT— Two teams with vastly different approaches engaged in a shootout Friday night in a ClassAA second-round playoff game at East-West Stadium with Fairmont Senior emerging victorious 58-42 over the Keyser Golden Tornado.
The Polar Bears, coming off a first-round victory over Lincoln, were focused on their aerial attack against the ground-dominated Golden Tornado.
Both squads had success offensively with what they were trying to do, with both teams combining not only for 100 total points, but also 1,057 yards of total offense.
Early on, Keyser’s rushing attack set the pace for the game.
In the first half, the Golden Tornado ran the ball for 305 yards and 27 total points with quarterback Brady Ours rushing for two touchdowns and Deavante Johnson and Colten Rodeheaver scoring once each.
The Polar Bears kept pace with the Golden Tornado in the first half, although they did so through the air.
Senior quarterback Dominic Smith threw the ball 23 times in the first half for 221 yards, connecting on touchdown passes to Michael Toothman, Bryson Gilbert and Nick Davisson.
With Fairmont Senior trailing 27-18 in the final minute of the first half, Keyser drove the ball to the Polar Bears’ 39 yard line and looked to set up a screen pass.
Gilbert, however, read the pass and intercepted it before racing 61 yards for a touchdown.
A missed extra point and three failed two-point conversions were the difference at the half and Keyser carried a 27-24 lead into the locker room.
As the second half began, the Fairmont Senior defense got a few key stops that changed the course of the game.
After the Polar Bears engaged on a long drive that ended with a Gilbert 2-yard touchdown run, they captured their first lead of the game and forced the Golden Tornado to play frombehind, limiting their rushing attack.
Throughout the game on several third downs, the Fairmont Senior pass rush got after Ours, compiling six sacks in the game, with Jake Abbott picking up one and brothers, Darius and Dante Stills, each picking up 2.5.
The Stills brothers and the rest of the Polar Bears combined for 17 tackles for loss over the course of the game.
Keyser did battle to take the lead back after a 26-yard pass from Ours to Johnson, but Fairmont Senior put their foot to the gas and continued to move the ball with ease.
Once Smith completed a 21yard touchdown pass to Michael Nuzum, Fairmont Senior captured the lead 38-34 and never looked back.
Smith completed 27-of-40 passes in the game for a total of 427 yards and threw six touchdowns to five players in the game.
Joseph Leon, Nick Davisson, Gilbert, Nuzum and Toothman all caught touchdown passes in the game, with Davisson and Gilbert breaking 100 yards and Leon coming up just short of the centurymark at 99.
Smith’s big night put him at 3,031 passing yards on the season with 34 touchdown passes, which is believed to be the best performance by any quarterback in school history.
Abbott credited the Polar Bears’ offensive line with a hard-fought game that allowed them to protect Smith in the pocket and allow him to find his receivers.
Gilbert led the way on the ground, rushing for 70 yards on seven carries and scoring three touchdowns on offense to go along with his defensive score.
Coming from behind, the Golden Tornado’s rushing attack, which gained 397 yards in the game, could not keep them in it late.
Keyser picked up one touchdown in the fourth quarter on an Ours run, but it wasn’t enough and the Polar Bears won the game 58-42.
They now advance to play Big 10 rival Bridgeport this Friday at 7:30 on the Indians home turf. I'll post the results on the school website.

Thespians established in Spring, 1929 **FSHS is #2, chapter
"In a small West Virginia town, three educators—Dr. Paul Opp, a professor at Fairmont State College, Harry Leeper, a teacher at East Fairmont High School, and Ernest Bavely, Opp's secretary—begin a series of meetings to discuss the creation of an honorary organization for high school theatre students. In short order they have written a constitution and a member induction ceremony. The organization, which will consist of troupes of students who earn membership by doing good work in their school's theatre program, will be called National Thespians ("Non-secret, non-social"). A charter for Thespian Troupe 1 is issued to Natrona County High School in Casper, Wyoming, where Dr. Earl Blank, who had made the original suggestion for the honorary society to Paul Opp, is a teacher."
June, 1929 By the end of the 1928-29 school year, seventy-one troupes are chartered in twenty-six states.
