Voltage Disappoints in Their Home Opener


Vermont Voltage News Release, Friday, July 8th, 2015

Manchester, VT Vermont’s Premier Soccer Club, The Vermont Voltage was defeated by Southern Vermont All Stars at home tonight in a match that ended 0-1 in favor of the away team. An exciting encounter that took place at Applejack field in Manchester, VT could have easily gone either way but it was the experience in their lineup that gave Southern VT All Stars an advantage to come out victorious.


After opening the season with 3 road games in Montreal with the record of 1-1-1, Voltage came out with an attacking lineup in a 4-1-4-1 formation and tried to dominate the game through possession, using an extra man in their midfield to get an edge over their opponents. On the other side, Southern VT All Stars played a simpler and direct game, trying to exploit the weaknesses of young home team and not long into the game, it worked out for them. A long ball from defense caught Voltage off guard in a 2 on 2 situation which was executed by Nile Wawlyn to put away team ahead. This moment seemed to get into the heads of Voltage players who were unable to continue to dominate the game. Even though Voltage created couple of chances, Southern VT All Stars had several good opportunities as well, especially through set pieces and rebounds.


Second half started similar, with both times battling in the middle of the field but with the difference on the scoreboard now which has allowed the away team to take their time going forward and play more relaxed game in general. On the other side, the Vermont Voltage started pushing forward more, taking more risk and leaving more space behind their backs. Regardless of couple of shots that were saved by Voltage goalkeeper David Giddings, Voltage looked up to the challenge and earned themselves several free kicks from the dangerous area at the edge of the box. One of those ended up hitting the post, while number of other attempts got stopped by Southern VT All Stars’ goalkeeper and his defenders who were up to the challenge tonight preventing the danger with some quality defending. Voltage kept piling on the pressure as the game approached the end, but none of their attempts made it to the net.



Perhaps this young Voltage squad was unlucky to lose tonight at their home opener in front of their loyal fans but lessons can be learned and now it is to be seen how they respond to it and prepare for the rest of the season. The fans still left the stadium in a good mood as they saw the top quality soccer in Vermont, and hopefully we will see more of the same.

Vermont Voltage Premier Soccer team’s Home Opener


Vermont Voltage News Release, Friday, July 3rd, 2015

July 8th at 6PM Applejack Field in Manchester, VT – Bennington, VT. – The Vermont Voltage has opened their season with 3 away games in Montreal in 3 back-to-back days with a record of 1-1-1. This set of games helped in preparation for their home opener on July 8th at 6PM in Manchester, VT at Applejack Field. This year’s Voltage team is a very young one, if not the youngest ever to represent Voltage with only having 1 player return from last year’s team.


Players from the best collegiate soccer programs from across the country such as Siena College, Mount Mercy University, Illinois Central College, West Virginia Wesleyan College, Southwestern Christian University, Saint Peters University, and University of San Diego; have so far only travelled to play their soccer across the border and it will be very exciting to see them in action at their home ground in Vermont. What this new Voltage team lacks in PDL experience, these young Division 1 athletes and All-Americans will make up in raw talent and determination. Only three games into the season, the Voltage had oscillated with their performance but have showed glimpses of what is very promising and as they spent more time together on the field, they looked more comfortable and convincing. Even though they didn’t get the result they would hope to get, spectators had a chance to enjoy great possession soccer that mimics the top teams around the world and sets foundation for greater future. Head coach Bo Vuckovic said “we have a very young team, but we are looking to compete and represent VT in the best possible way.”


Maybe what the Voltage lacked in the first three games is the support and energy that 2,000 screaming home fans bring to the game. Returning midfielder Mario Maric said “I can’t wait to play our first home game in front of some of the best soccer fans in New England.” So make sure you come out to support Mario and the rest of the Vermont Voltage team on the 8th at 6:00pm at Applejack Field in Manchester and see the best soccer played in the state of Vermont



In contrast to all new Voltage players is an old partnership between the Vermont Voltage and Pepsi Brattleboro, which spells good news for Voltages fans. Pepsi Brattleboro will be giving all fans who attend the Voltage home games a chance to win prizes and enjoy the half time program. This partnership will ensure countless half time promotions, prizes, and give-a-ways at all voltage games



The game on Wednesday night has all the requirements to be a great one. During last season when The Voltage took on South Vermont All Stars, they came out victorious with a comfortable 3-0 win and are hoping to repeat the same. Since Voltage has proved their dominance in this annual rivalry that has continued for 8 years now, it will be interesting to see if young players will respond to these expectations. With this new born rivalry no one can predict what the result of this match will be. It’s a great family fun night and all lovers of the game of soccer should come out and support your Vermont Voltage at their home opener July 8th 6pm Applejack field.

Vermont Voltage face off against rivals GPS Portland Phoenix


Vermont Voltage News Release, Wednesday July 9, 2014

Vermont. – The Vermont Voltage will be up against their biggest rivals in the PDL; GPS Portland Phoenix. The Voltage lost in their last game 1-0 to Seacoast United; the number 1 team in the division. But even through the lost there are many things the Voltage can take away leading in the GPS Portland game. 1st Vermont controlled the entire game even when they were losing; they controlled the pace of the game and kept possession of the ball the whole time. The only goal of the game came out of the run of play for Seacoast. The Voltage will want to play the same way against GPS Portland and convert more of their chances into goals.

Duran Shand again will be very important to the Voltage offence and has found his form as of late; he will just be looking for a few goals to go with his recent good performances. Nate Olukamni has also solidified his place in the Voltage midfield the last couple of games. With players like Adrian Saldana and forward Nick Jackson feeding him balls on the right flank of the field he can’t be stopped. Olukamni uses his blazing fast speed to burst by defenders standing still and cross in balls into the box to our waiting forwards. If the Voltage expect to be successful on Saturday Nate Olukamni will have to continue to own the right side of the field.


Without question fan favorite, Adam Kay put in a man of the match performance last game recording 3 great chances on goal while playing midfield then putting his body on the line to save to sure goals after being switched to centerback in the second half.


GPS Portland Phoenix come into Saturday’s game 6th in the conference with a record of 4-7-0. GPS won 2 of their last 3 games with their last lost coming at the hands of Real Boston. Tulloch McKauley is Portland’s current leading scorer with 3 goals with 10 shots in 296 minutes played. The Adam Butler and the rest of the Voltage defense will look to contain him and the rest of the GPS Portland Phoenix offense.

 

The Vermont Voltage take on GPS Portland Phoenix Saturday July 12th, 2014. The Voltage will be playing home at Collins-Perley Sports Complex, in St. Albans VT, at 7:00pm.

The task of controlling his contribution to the game will fall on Adam butler, Adam Kay, Luka Milicevic, and David Itoafa; the Voltages defenders.

For the Voltage, their attacking form of soccer can result in goals coming from any player on the field. With 4 players tied for scorer on the team and 2 of them being defenders the Voltage attack is just too unpredictable and will ultimately give Seacoast United defenders a hard time.  

The Vermont Voltage is coming off a tough loss against Western Mass last weekend but look to bounce back against the Phantoms and turn their season around. Head Coach Bo Vuckovic said, “This game will be a very exciting one with a great environment. When we play the Phantoms it always a thrilling event because of the passionate rivalry between the two teams.”

Vermont Voltage set for St. Albans’ Home Opener May 31st 7pm.


For Immediate Release: May 29th, 2014

St. Albans, VT. – This will be the 15th year that the Voltage calls St. Albans home. May 2000 was the Vermont Voltage’s very first home opener at St. Albans and it was played against the Westchester Flames who will be the Voltage’s opponent again Saturday May 31st at 7:00p.m.

The Voltage’s start to the season has not been an easy one, finding themselves on the wrong side of unlucky penalty calls. Head coach Bo Vuckovic said “the team has been working hard and has been concentrated all week on this game. Leaders on the team such as Captain Adrian Saldana and right defender Luka Milicevic are excited for the chance to prove them selves in front of a home crowd that have been able to support the Voltage for such a long time.

This year’s Voltage team is a very young one, with only having 2 players return from last year’s team. Players from the best collegiate soccer programs from across the country such as Canisius College, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, Grand Canyon University, Siena College, Southwestern Christian University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Mount Mercy University, and Keene State College; have travelled to play their soccer in Vermont. What this new Voltage team lacks in PDL experience, these young Division 1 athletes and All-Americans will make up in raw talent and determination.

 The Voltages’ opponent for this week’s game is a special one. The Westchester Flames were originally in the Voltages’ division before switching out to a new division. Well now they are back in the PDL Northeast division and are looking to make a name for themselves. However this is a important game for the Vermont Voltage also. They are still looking for that all elusive 1st win of the season.

Because this is the 15th year that the Voltage calls Collins-Perley Sports Complex in St. Albans Home, any youth soccer player that comes to the Vermont Voltage game in their club jersey will be let into the game free of charge!

Vermont Voltage can’t top CFC Azul

For Immediate Release: May 24th, 2014

 Manchester VT- the Voltage fell today to the CFC Azul 2-0. They started off the game quickly holding possession of the ball and controlling the tempo of the game. 23 minutes into the game that would change when Shan Shand would be red carded for some sort of altercation on the field. With 1 less player on the field the Voltage found it hard to continuously control the tempo, however the half would end 0-0.

 The second half began the same as the first half ended, with both CFC Azul and the Voltage fighting for possession in the midfield. In the 69th minute CFC Azul finally reached its reward with Reco McLaren hitting home a low cross into the back of the Voltage net. Minutes later in the 75th, a penalty was given when a Azul player was allegedly pushed in the back while trying to head a cross on target.

 The voltage continued to have their chances but could not convert any into goals.

 The voltage will play their next game at home May 31st, 2014 at 7:00; in Collins Perley Sports Complex against the Westchester Flames.

Vermont Voltage Premier Soccer team’s Home Opener May 24th in Manchester, VT


For Immediate Release:
May 21st, 2014

Bennington, VT. – The Vermont Voltage has been training at Southern Vermont College this week in preparation for their home opener on May 24th in Manchester, VT at Applejack Field. This year marks a very special season for the Voltage; being the first team from Vermont in history to qualify for the U.S. Open Cup. They are also hoping that this season’s successes will qualify them for the Open Cup again next year.

 This year’s Voltage team is a very young one, with only having 2 players return from last year’s team. Players from the best collegiate soccer programs from across the country such as Canisius College, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, Grand Canyon University, Siena College, Southwestern Christian University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Mount Mercy University, and Keene State College; have travelled to play their soccer in Vermont. What this new Voltage team lacks in PDL experience, these young Division 1 athletes and All-Americans will make up in raw talent and determination. Only two games into the season, the Voltage had hoped for a better start, they finished both games on the losing side. However the young players have looked bright during those games, playing great possession soccer almost mimicking the likes of Barcelona and Arsenal. Head coach Bo Vuckovic said “we have a very young team, but we are looking to compete and represent VT in the best possible way.”

 Maybe what the Voltage lacked in the first two games is the support and energy that 1,000 screaming home fans bring to the game. Joint leading scorer Adrian Saldana said “I can’t wait to play our first home game in front of some of the best soccer fans in New England.” So make sure you come out to support Adrian and the rest of the Vermont Voltage team on the 24th at 6:00pm at Applejack Field in Manchester and see the best soccer played in the state of Vermont.

 Arriving with all the new Voltage players is a new partnership between the Vermont Voltage and Carbone Auto, which spells good news for Voltages fans. Carbone Auto will be giving all fans who attend the voltage home games a chance to enter a drawing to win a brand new car at the end of the season. Along with that there will be countless half time promotions, prizes, and give-a-ways at all voltage games.

 The game Saturday night has all the making to be a great one. During last season when The Voltage took on CFC Azul, neither could be bested and the game ended in a draw. This year, both teams will be looking for that all elusive win. With this new born rivalry no one can predict what will the results of this match will be. It’s a great family fun night and all lovers of the game of soccer should come out and support your Vermont Voltage at their home opener May 24th 6pm Applejack field.

Voltage End Their Season in Front of Amazing Crowd

For Immediate Release: August 24th, 2013

Manchester, VT - In front of a packed stadium tonight, Saturday August 24th in Manchester, Vermont, The Vermont Voltage ended their season against the East Coast United Serbs. The Serbs defeated Vermont 2-1, ending the Voltage's unbeaten streak of 11 games. Fans were treated to multiple give-aways throughout the night, courtesy of Pepsi Brattleboro, Greenberg's Beverage, and Mount Anthony Country Club.

The match started slowly, with neither side playing with any real sort of conviction. It wasn't until late in the first half that East Coast United got the go-ahead goal, converting a penalty kick. Vermont was able to rally before the half ended and net a goal of their own, as forward Bozidar Jelovac was put through onto goal via a through pass by player/coach Bo Vuckovic. Jelovac kept a level head and slotted the ball past the keeper.

The whistle indicating half time meant give-aways for Voltage fans as usual. There were plenty of candidates to participate in the half time competition, with Apple Jack field filled with fans of Vermont's Premier Soccer Club.

After the half time festivities, it was time to get back to the soccer. The second half proved to be frustrating for both sides, with each team creating plenty of chances but failing to capitalize on any. With five minutes remaining, the East Coast United Serbs won the ball in the center of the field and counter attacked. A long pass was sent into the danger area in front of the Voltage net and after a few quick passes, the Serbs were able to find the back of the net, winning the match in the process.

Player/Coach Bo Vuckovic stated: "It was a great game. We would have liked to win and continue our unbeaten streak, but they (the East Coast United Serbs) played well and all good things must come to an end. It was a great season; we only lost 5 of our 24 games. All of us at the Voltage would like to thank the fans for making tonight, and every game night, special."

The Voltage were creating chance after chance and it wasn't long until a second goal was netted by Vermont midfielder Chance Bukoski. Bukoski broke free of the opposition's defense and dribbled past the keeper in order to slot the ball home. FC CSMRO made use of their few opportunities and cut the deficit in half before half-time, making the score 2-1 in favor of Vermont.

While the two opposing teams rested, Voltage fans were subject to half time entertainment. On top of plenty of give-aways in honor of New England Federal Credit Union night, half time at the Collins-Perley sports complex featured a dog show put on by Tenneburger Animal Hospital.

The second half of the match proved to be as one-sided as the first, with Vermont dominating possession and moving the ball around the field as they pleased. Voltage midfielder Kyle O'Brien capped off the scoring with a beautiful left-footed volley after spreading the ball wide and making a far post run to get on the end of the resulting cross.

Player/Coach Bo Vuckovic stated: "It was an impressive performance by the guys. They (FC CSMRO) came out strongly and we were simply the better team. Our guest players played extremely well and it was a great rematch."

Voltage Gain Convincing Win Away in New Hampshire

For Immediate Release: June 8th, 2013

Vermont's Premier Soccer Club, The Vermont Voltage played their 3rd away game of the 2013 Premier Development Season tonight, Saturday June 8th to the result of a 2-0 win away from home against the Seacoast United Phantoms. The match started slowly with Seacoast maintaining most of the possession but failing to penetrate an organized Voltage defense. Chances were few and far between up until the 36th minute when, after a spell of possession and good build up play by the Voltage, midfielder Luka Milicevic combined with forward Chance Bukoski for a beautiful give-and-go backheel pass to put Milicevic in front of the opposing net. Milicevic kept calm and slotted the ball past the Phantom's goalkeeper in order to make the score 1-0.

Player-Coach Bo Vuckovic sought to motivate the Voltage at half-time, reinforcing the idea that the team is weakest after scoring and making sure Vermont didn't give up the lead they won in the first half like in previous matches. Knowing his team possesses dangerous attacking intent, Vuckovic focused on getting the most out of his squad's defense in the latter half of the match. The second half started as slowly as the first, with Seacoast edging out the Voltage in terms of possession once again, but failing to do anything productive with the ball. The Voltage struck yet again in the 80th minute when midfielder Lucas Almeida received the ball with a defender on his back, turned smoothly and picked out the right through pass in order to put forward Joaquin Rivas in on net. Rivas knew exactly what to do with the ball and calmly placed it past the Seacoast keeper into the far corner of the goal. After obtaining a buffer of 2 goals, The Voltage squad compacted defensively in order to protect their lead. All in all, a concrete team performance by the Voltage led to the win, with the starting eleven putting in solid, hardworking shifts, Goalkeeper Joseph Vitale keeping a clean sheet, and substitutes Mayowa Tola-Isaac, Darko Nikolic, and Juan Maffey making admirable appearances despite making a late entrance to a high-paced match. Player-Coach Vuckovic stated: "We deserved to take away the 3 points, I'm happy with the team's performance. The team worked hard and had the desire to take home the match."

The next Voltage home match is Saturday June 29th, at 7PM at the Collins-Perley Sports Complex in St. Albans.

Exciting News for Southern Vermont!

For Immediate Release: (January 21st, 2013)

MANCHESTER - An agreement has been reached between the Vermont Voltage Premier Soccer Club and the Town of Manchester for the team to play up to five games at Applejack Field over the next three seasons.

The deal was finalized on Friday, Jan. 11, after months of negotiations dating back to the fall, according to Manchester Town Manager John O'Keefe. The agreement is a one-year contract with two one-year options. After the first season, O'Keefe said either party may notify the other that they do not wish to continue the agreement.

"I'm very happy [to have a] finished agreement with the Town of Manchester," said general manager of the Vermont Voltage Bo Vuckovic. "We already played there the past couple of years [so] It will be a great opportunity to play more games in the summer. We love playing in Manchester and it's a great crowd, great field, good atmosphere for the game, so I'm looking forward [to it]."

Over the past couple of years, the Voltage have played exhibition games on the Fourth of July at Applejack Field. However, Manchester Town Manager John O'Keefe said that because their league has specific rules about locker rooms and other things league games could not take place at Applejack Field. With the addition of the Park House though - which will be completed in February - that has changed.

"Before the park house was built we couldn't have hosted this team," O'Keefe said. "So, [that's] one benefit. It's certainly not the reason we built it, but

it's certainly a great side benefit."

When the Voltage have played exhibition games at Applejack in previous years Vuckovic estimated that they probably drew an attendance of about 1,000 people - something he hopes they can improve upon.

"We are looking to build off that and we're going to start as soon as we finalize our schedule in March," he said. "We're going to start promoting all our games in that area and hopefully we'll get good attendance."

Though their schedule has yet to be finalized, Vuckovic said they will probably try to get teams from Boston or other areas of Massachussetts to play at Applejack.

In a conversation with O'Keefe on Wednesday, he felt the agreement would not only bring more people to the town to watch the games, but that it could be beneficial in other ways as well.

"I think it will be a draw on the cultural side in addition to what we already have because it's more of an active cultural attraction," O'Keefe said. "We've got a lot of cultural amenities here in Manchester, but we really didn't have a team, a professional team, that called Manchester its home. I think it's going to be very good for the town. I think it will bring a certain level of excitement and energy to the town. I think it's good for kids. I think it's good for soccer. So, I think overall it's going to be a big plus."

In addition, both O'Keefe and Vuckovic said they felt some of the high school players would be able to learn some things about the game simply by watching the team in action.

"I think that's one of the major things that is lacking here in the United States. A lot of kids are playing soccer, but they're not watching as much as like kids in Europe," Vuckovic said. "It's very, very important that you have that visual aspect of the game and you can improve a lot just by watching it. Certain stuff you're going to learn, what's happening on the field and how the players act in different positions and what they need to do, you've got to watch and that's lacking. So, I think this will help tremendously."

As part of the agreement, Vuckovic said the club will be holding camps at the Manchester Parks and Rec Department and that all the players will serve as camp instructors.

The Voltage's season - which consists of somewhere between 12 to 15 games - begins in May and goes until late August or early September, Vuckovic said.

The USL was founded in 1986 and is a platform for countless players to reach for their dreams each year. USL is devoted to developing the sport at the grassroots level in every community across the region. Their website is www.USLsoccer.com.

The PDL continues to be a who's who of future domestic and international stars in North America's top developmental league.

This season the Voltage will be playing 5 games at South Burlington High School.

The fury who have been untested this far in the season due to their low amount of games (1) will be coming in with intentions of stealing the 3 points for a win from the Voltage as they recorded a loss in their season opener. They have been one of the top teams in the division and they also have a great youth academy. In last year's 3 meetings there were two ties and one win for Ottawa vs. the Voltage.
Ottawa is so far led by the midfielder Alex Rodriguez who leads the fury with 1 goal, 3 shots in only 62 minutes of play. Rodriguez is closely followed by Christopher Banner, Thomas Beattie and Marcello Castro who all have 2 shots.

The Voltage are still lead by Fabricio Barancoski and Ognjen Perucica who both lead the team with 2 points (one goal each) on the season while Ognjen leads the team with shots (9).

Amir Pasic who minds the net for the Voltage may not be starting in the home opener as he is reported to have a slight groin injury. This will open the window for one of the back-up keepers and has yet to be determined.

The voltage return to South Burlington High School on June 2nd at 7pm to host the Seacoast United Phantoms (3-0-2). The Phantoms are led by Dylan George who has 3 goals on 5 shots and is tied for most fouls with George Delano with 8.

PORTLAND, Me. - Chris Banks scored the game-winner with 12 minutes to play as the CPS Portland Phoenix handed the Vermont Voltage a 2-1 defeat in the season opener for both teams at Deering High School on Saturday night.

Voltage begin 16th season Saturday

For Immediate Release: (May 10, 2012)

The revamped Vermont Voltage begin their 16th season in the United Soccer League's Premier Development League on Saturday when they travel to Portland, Me. to face the MPS Portland Phoenix. Game time is 6 p.m.

The Voltage return just five players from last year's team that went 3-7-5 in the PDL's Eastern Division: Owner Bo Vuckovic, Liam Gilbert, Tomy Szczypiorski, Mark Benson and Mario Maric.

"We a very young team this year," said Vuckovic, who hired a new head coach - Hugh Brown - in the off-season. Brown, the director of the Synergy Football Club in Burlington, is also the director of player personnel.

"Hugh has a ton of experience developing players and with his leadership on the bench and recruiting players, I expect we will field a very competitive team," said Vuckovic.

As always, the early portion of the schedule will be crucial for the Voltage who play eight of their first 10 games on the road.

"We need to find a way to get some points on the road early," said Vuckovic, adding it's hard for the team to enjoy success early in the season because the players are still coming from all around the country and therefore haven't developed a feel for playing alongside each other. Most of the teams Vermont plays against have been practicing together for a few weeks thanks to the proximity of their players. "It's always a challenge early," said Vuckovic.

Vermont's home opener will be May 30 at South Burlington High School. Due to field renovations at the Collins-Perley Sports Complex in St. Albans, Vermont will not play a game in St. Albans until July. The first five home games will be in South Burlington. Vermont also will play games in Manchester and Lyndon this season.

Vermont is playing in an eight-team division this season, up from the five-team division from last year.

The other teams in the division are: MPC Portland Phoenix, Boston Victory, Seacoast United Phantoms, Ottawa Fury, Western Mass Pioneers, CFC Azul and Worcester Hydra.
