Girls’ Soccer Continues Dominance Over Pierson

September 20, 2011

The Rylands sisters converge on a Lady Whaler

The last time our girls soccer team visited Pierson/Bridgehampton’s Mashashimuet Park was 364 days ago.  Behind a hat trick from Michelle Hennessy and a pair of goals and 4 assists from Donna Liotine, the Bears rolled 6-1.  Today’s result was slightly different, but this year’s youthful squad, though greatly altered from last year’s senior laden team, showed that they still have the hearts of champions that have guided this program to 4 consecutive County Championships.

A return to League VIII play was a welcome respite for our girls who played an exceedingly difficult non-league schedule against the likes of Westhampton and Kings Park.  The blue and white lost those games by a combined score of 10-0, results that would fragment lesser teams, but our girls stayed resilient and won out against one of their fiercest Class C rivals.  After a 0-0 first half, it was the vaunted youth of the team that orchestrated the Lady Whalers’ demise.  With 14 minutes gone in the 2nd half, 8th-grader Annie Skorobohaty found freshman Daija Rubino for a goal, the 1st of her career, that supplied all the scoring in a 1-0 win.  From there the defense, led by Madison Rylands, made sure the lead held up.  Mikaela Stiklickas stood tall in goal, making 6 saves to secure her first career shutout.

Notes

The girls are currently ranked #13 on the New York State Sportswriters Association Class C poll.

Box Score

  • Rubino | 1 goal
  • Skorobohaty | 1 assist
  • Stiklickas | 6 saves/1st shutout
