The Saint Anthony’s girls’ varsity soccer team had one thing in mind heading into this season, that is, winning a third straight state championship. They certainly are proving to be a force to be reckoned with. The Friars are 10-0 overall (8-0 in league play) and continue to dominate.
The Friars have been led by forward Sabrina Cristodero and attacking center midfield Francesca Picicci. They have a combined 17 goals with 4 assists. The Friars are just as good on defense as they are up front. Defenders Stephanie Darrell and Katrina Etts have only allowed 3 goals this season. “This team is very solid in every position and is very deep off the bench,” said Coach Alber.
The highlight of the season, and the turning point of the season was when the Friars beat Immaculate Heart Academy 1–0. Coach Alber later stated, “It was my proudest moment as a coach at Saint Anthony’s. They represented the Friars well.”
The Friars have a tough road ahead of them before they “three-peat.” They face Sacred Heart Academy on 10/17 which will decide who finishes atop the standings. No matter who the opponent, the Friars team has the confidence, the intensity, and the skill level to succeed.
