We are at the halfway point of the season and our Lady Falcons are in a three-way battle for the championship. We started off with an exciting 5-4 victory against Anzar during which Cynthia Ortiz-Naranjo '21 scored 4 goals and Celeste McGuire '22 notched the winner with 2 minutes left. A hard earned 1-1 tied with Cynthia again on the mark followed before a 2-0 win against Oakwood, with Celeste and Cynthia bagging a goal each. After an unlucky 1-0 defeat to Marina, York returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory against Trinity with Cynthia netting a hat-trick.
The team is clearly making good progress and are very entertaining to watch. SooYeon Kim '20 has been outstanding in her first season in goal, while the defense is proving to be very strong with Josefina Camacho '20, Sophia Sanico '20, Zibby Lindholm '22 and Heather Galinato '22. Midfield is really connecting with Celeste McGuire '22, Anna Mejia-Contreras '21, Kate Popky '21 and Esmie Ortiz '22. The forward line is looking very clinical with Sarah Stoker '21 and Cynthia Ortiz-Naranjo '21. Our three new freshmen players, Maddie Gill '23, Allison Griffin '23 and Hannah Xu '23, have made their mark and are developing well. And last, but not least, Nora Butler '20 and Camilla Martin '22 have also made very valuable contributions to the team. We hope to finish the season strong, come out and support.
