Notching their second shutout in the past three games, the girls soccer team defeated Brennan 7-0 Jan. 20. The team now stands at 4-2 (W-L).
Junior forward Kyra Falcone earned a hat trick in the first half and, after scoring her fourth goal two minutes into the second half, she took the majority of the second half off. Scoring her first goals of the season, senior Alex Steinmetz scored in both halves of the game, being assisted on her first by Falcone.
Also, sophomore forward Ashton Woods tallied her first goal of the season and ended the game on a high note scoring in the last minute on a breakaway play.
“I’d like to think that our defense is solid, keeping out goals,” Coach Erik Stolhandske said. “It’s been taking some time to get our midfield and our attack together, but the girls are finally gelling.”
Often found sitting in the background, junior goalie Mary Cardone has rarely seen action at goalie in two out of the last three games, against Brackenridge and Brennan. This is not because she has been benched but that the ball rarely comes her way.
“I get bored all the time, but in the Brackenridge game I actually got to go on the field and scored three goals,” Cardone said. “I just try to stay occupied and talk to the defense and keep them engaged.”
