I not only got to watch Fox Lane defeat Nyack on Monday, but I also got a bit of a lesson on from Fox Lane coach Bill Broggy on Friedrich Nietzsche. Read on below to find out more.
The latest milestone that was hit: Byram Hills’ Noelle Love scored her 150th goal in the team’s win over Harrison.
NYACK – In the sports world, many coaches espouse on the quotes and ideas of fellow coaches in talking with their teams.
Fox Lane coach Bill Broggy, following his team’s 15-9 win at Nyack on Wednesday, pep-talked his team with the ideas of a different type of figure: Friedrich Nietzsche.
With Broggy being a philosophy teacher and the Foxes now on a three-game winning streak, the team seems to be buying into the German philosopher’s concept of Übermensch — overcoming who they are.
“When you come here in practices and games, you have to overcome who you are,” Broggy said. “We need to do that, we’re still extremely young. I’m just trying to do what I can to get them to think and come together as a team.”
Fox Lane and Nyack were neck-and-neck for most of the first half, until consecutive goals from Lindsay West and Cesily Wheeler in the final 1:35 gave Fox Lane an 8-5 lead going into halftime.
Ten seconds into the second half, Keely Connors gave Fox Lane a four-goal advantage. Nyack, playing with only one sub, kept the game within three, but eventually ran out of gas and were unable to wrestle the ball away from Fox Lane in the final minutes.
“It seems to be a trend in our past couple of games that we come out slow,” Jennifer Farrell, a senior who finished with five goals and an assist, said. “If we had slowed down those fast breaks off the draw, that could have made a difference.”
Nyack, which honored all five of its seniors before the game, saw another senior, Tara Blinn, finish with two goals and an assist.
“All these seniors have done such a good job, from supporting the team when they were younger and moving up through the ranks,” coach Kathryn Perrella said. “I’m going to miss them all.”
For Fox Lane, West finished with three goals and two assists, Connors had four goals and an assist and Catherine Schreiber finished with three goals and two assists.
While Fox Lane got the win, coach Broggy emphasized to his team after the game to play a full 50 minutes, similar to when the Foxes upset Class B power John Jay last week.
The team will take that, along with Nietzsche’s philosophies, into Wednesday’s game against another Class B power, Somers, a team that Fox Lane has lost to in one-goal games twice in a row.
“We really, really want to beat Somers,” West said. “We just have to play the full 50 minutes smart; we all have the intensity and drive to win, we just have to compose ourselves and make the most of every single possession.”
“It should have been ours last year, but we couldn’t pull through,” Connors added. “This time, we’re going to win.”
