As Colleen Geyer gets better, so does the play of her Clarkstown South teammates.
Playing the role of central midfielder, the sophomore assisted on both of the Vikings’ goals in a 2-1 win at Pelham on Friday.
“It was a good game for both sides, it was back and forth,” head coach Jordan Turner said. “Pelham played tough the whole way, I just feel fortunate that we converted one more chance than they did.”
On both goals, Geyer brought the ball up and crossed the ball to her wingers. Dara Studnitzer scored Clarkstown South’s first goal, while Kiersten Ahle scored the winner with about nine minutes left in the second half.
“She really controlled the middle of the field today,” Turner said. “She’s become more confident as a player. She can make things happen anywhere on the field.”
Kaylee Levine scored for Pelham, with the assist going to Chandler Solimine.
Clarkstown South (5-9-2) will go into the Class AA sectional tournament as one of the lower-seeded teams. Turner, however, doesn’t think whichever team faces them should take the Vikings lightly.
“I think we’re a better team than our record indicates,” Turner said. “I’m looking forward to making some waves and hopefully upsetting somebody.”
