Once again it’s time to release the most important girls lacrosse award this side of the Mississippi.
Lots of fantastic performances this week. As many of you pointed out, it’s not just about goals. A trio of goalies played particularly well. Byram Hills’ K.C. Murray had strong week in net, helping the Bobcats to wins over Ossining and Rye with double-digit saves in each game. Mamaroneck’s Gaby Anselmo has helped turned the Tigers’ season around with her play in net. Scarsdale’s Julia Ross has also continued to be a rock for the Red Raiders in between the pipes.
Other strong performances included Horace Greeley’s Hannah Dunn helping the Quakers to a last second win over Rye, in addition to scoring her 100th goal. North Rockland’s Kaitlyn Rau also registered her 200th goal.
Still, there was one offensive performance that stood out among the rest.
Emily Concialdi, Yorktown—
The Huskers had a murderers row of opponents on the slate last week. With games against Rye, John Jay and Lakeland/Panas over a five day span, Yorktown had no room for error if they hoped to keep their win streak alive. Lucky for the Huskers Concialdi came to play.
The sophomore midfielder opened things up with a hat trick against the reigning Class C sectional champions as she helped Yorktown to a 15-10 win.
Against John Jay, Concialdi would post another hat trick, this one coming in the first half, as she jumped started the Huskers’ offensive against their rivals and biggest competition in Class B.
Her best work came in Yorktown’s 10-9 win against Lakeland/Panas. While Jenna Gammer’s last-second heroics got most of the attention, it was Concialdi who registered five goals in the game.
