Another week in the books means once again it’s time to select the winner of the most prestigious award in all the land.
This week had plenty of candidates. Mamaroneck’s Keira Taussig helped the Tigers to a strong week that could potentially turn around their season. John Jay’s Molly O’Reilly put up monster numbers as the Indians continue to roll. Ossining’s Molly Malone scored her 200th goal en route to the Pride getting a solid win against league-rival Rye. Putnam Valley’s Erin McCrudden posted seven points in their upset over Somers.
But, just like in Highlander…there can only be one.
Julia Massaro, Rye Country Day—
Massaro put together quite the week, helping RCDS to go 3-0. She started things off with an eight-point performance (six goals, two assists) in a 13-9 win over St. Luke’s.
The real #BOTW worthy performance came two days later. Massaro led RCDS with four goals and two assists in a 10-9 win over Sacred Heart (Conn.). Ok, a solid stat line, but nothing to right home about. Here is the catch: The victory was the first time in 13 years the Wildcats have beaten Sacred Heart.
Massaro closed the week out with another eight-point day (five goals, three assists) in RCDS’ 10-7 win over Hopkins.
