SFDS Wins Soccer Tournament
By Casey Duffy and
Despite the rain (and snow!) this spring, St. Francis de Sales fourth grade soccer team had a fun and exciting season. The season ended with a final record of four wins and four ties.
The team welcomed back Jillian Moore and also welcomed new members Jessie Urcelay, Victoria Ramos, Alexi Girlando and Kerry Hynes.
St. Francis won the championship against St. Robert Bellarmine with a score of two to one in overtime. There was excellent defense by Katie Lawrence, Chloe Meli, Caitlin O’Rourke, Tara Mullen, Brianne Carroll, Rita Reagan, Jessica Pritchette, and Michelle Cashen in the game held on June 4. The goalies Michelle Kenel, Kerry King and Lauren Spadaro let in only one goal.
The midfielders, Alexi Girlando, Victoria Ramos, Alexa Langweil, and Devin Stathis, kicked every ball that came towards them. Great passes by forwards Jillian Moore, Laura Gilmartin, Casey Duffy, Ashley McNamara and Danielle Geraghty who assisted in two goals scored by Norah Marley.
Other team members who played hard all season are Caitlyn Murtagh, Casey McCormack, Kerry Hynes, Jessica Darcy and Michelle Lavin.
