I think it’s only fitting that the last full week of the regular season was by far the most difficult to pick my Beast of the week.
Ossining’s Molly Malone set a program-record in points, recording her 300th point in a win against Dobbs Ferry. Quite an achievement.
Mahopac’s Kim Harker posted six points in the Indians 12-11 win against Lakeland/Panas, their first since 2009. She posted another six points in a win against Clarkstown South. Harker finished the week off with a three-goal game against White Plains.
Suffern’s Caitlin Leary led the Mounties with six goals against North Rockland, helping them avenge a loss less than a week earlier. Leary would post three more goals, including the game winner, in Suffern’s 12-11 last-second win against Yorktown, the Huskers’ first loss in the section this season.
Still, one proved to be extra special.
Lindsey Repp, Scarsdale—
On paper, it all looked pretty simple for the Raiders at the start of the week. Win two games and the league championship was theirs. In reality, Scarsdale would have to win to games against two very talented teams in Bronxville and Mamaroneck.
Repp, who has been the top playmaker for the Raiders throughout the season, showed no signs of shying away from the spotlight.
On Tuesday the junior midfielder posted six goals and four assists as the Raiders cruised to a 22-9 win over Bronxville.
Saturday would be another difficult test. To a win a league title Scarsdale would need to beat the reigning champions on their home field.
Repp came up big again, scoring four goals as the Raiders came away with a 17-15 win, earning their first league title since 2009.
