SFDS 3rd Grade Girls Win Championship

By Robin Hoffman

The SFDS 3rd grade girls’ soccer team started their weekend with a great start. The team played Anastasia and won 7-0 in their first playoff game. The teams’ scorers were Jenna Hoffman, scoring 4 goals, along with Lisa Pulkoski, Marissa Scotto, and Meredith Edelson. The halfbacks Jessica Boland, Megan LaCognata, Briana Hart, and Catherine Murphy did a great job controlling the middle of the field. Kathleen Quinn, Erin Blum, Lauren Perrone, and Kristen Henschel kept Anastasia’s goalies on their toes.

Our strong defense prevented the ball from ever entering the 18yd box. Megan Rochelle, Emily Santiago, Christina Gallo, Emma Lane, and Jovanice Uriarte did a fine job in the backfield. Our team "wall" Jennie O’Hara and Regina Paskoff did a terrific job not allowing a single goal. Going into the final the following day the girls had a 1-1-1 record against Heart.

As the game progressed it became apparent it was going to be a SFDS victory. After a long hard season the girls were now playing as a team, rather than a group of individual players. Passing and teamwork helped the team win 6-1. Marissa Scotto, Megan LaCognata, Jessica Boland, Lauren Perrone, Lisa Pulkoski, and Kristen Henschel each found the net.

Jenna Hoffman, Erin Blum, Meredith Edelson, and Kathleen Quinn assisted on the goals. The defensive players Megan Rochelle, Emily Santiago, Briana Hart, Christina Gallo, Kristen Henschel, and Emma Lane did a great job pushing Heart out of their defensive area. Goalies Jennie O’Hara, and Catherine Murphy did an excellent job clearing the ball out. Reviewing the game I am not sure who was more excited the coaches, parents or players. Watching the girls on the field and how they moved the soccerball around that day was a sight to see. The girls played an unbelievable game. The coaches and parents are so proud of all of them. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
