VIDEO: Somers Emma Schurr and Aly Martone talk following win.
Somers made quite the statement to the rest of Class B on the final day of the regular season.
The fact the Tuskers entered their final game of the regular season undefeated made it clear they were talented, but Somers’ 14-7 win against John Jay, the reigning Class B sectional champions, showed how serious the Tuskers are about winning their first sectional title in program history.
“They played amazing,” Somers coach Jaime Irving said. “Everything they’ve been working towards this entire season, and the team I know they could be, they showed up today. Going into sectionals, I couldn’t have asked for a better game.”
The Tuskers (14-0-1) built a 9-3 lead on John Jay (9-6-1) and never looked back, maintaining at least a five-goal lead en route to the win, which secured the League I-A title outright, Somers’ third-straight league championship.
Nicole DeMase and Livy Rosenzweig each scored four goals to lead the Tuskers. Hanna Bocklet scored three goals for the Indians while teammate Amanda Flayhan added two goals, including her 100th, and an assist.
“It’s definitely been a special season thus far,” said Somers’ Emma Schurr, who scored three goals and was one of five seniors, along with Nicole Emanuele, Tara Schurr, Shannon Coogan and Aly Martone, honored before the game. “Winning the section championship would be the cherry on top.”
Schurr was quick to point out this win won’t mean anything if the two teams cross paths again during sectionals.
“I think they’re definitely going to be a different team (in sectionals),” Schurr said. “We can’t look at the score of this game and be like, ‘Oh, we’re going to kill them if we play them again.’ … They’re going to come back a different team if we see them again.”
