The sophomore reached the milestone in the first half of a back-and-forth contest that had neither team take much of an advantage in the terrible conditions. Korpi, who has played on varsity since eighth grade, is the first player in program history to score 100 goals.
“Watching Mackenzie grow as a player is wonderful,” Blind Brook coach Mike Martino said. “The cool and calm she plays with is fantastic.”
Korpi put Blind Brook (3-4-1) up on Rye Neck (1-6-1) for good with three minutes remaining with her fourth goal of the game.
Martino was happy to see his young team come away with a close win. The Trojans entered the game 0-2 in one-goal contests.
“It’s always nice when you pull out the last-minute win,” Martino said. “I think the girls are really starting to get their experience.”
Courtney Shaw finished with five goals for Blind Brook. Ali Kupin and Vanessa Numme each scored a goal apiece. Jasmine Reyes led Rye Neck with four goals.
As for Korpi, the sky is the limit for the youngster, according to Martino.
“Knowing the hard work she puts in, she’ll definitely grow into an even better player,” Martino said. “It’s really exciting to see.”
