After going 4-12 last season, Brewster has emerged as one of the area’s biggest surprises this year.
This week, led by sophomore sensation Lauren Craft, the Bears had a successful week and managed to get themselves into the latest #lohudglax Top 10 Power Rankings.
In three games, the midfielder had 16 goals and won 15 draw controls. She came up biggest in the team’s upset win over Lakeland/Panas on Monday, scoring seven goals and winning seven draw controls. In Friday’s 16-8 win over Briarcliff, Craft led the way with eight goals, to go with four ground balls and two caused turnovers.
Craft, who is committed to Penn State, currently has a team-high 44 goals and 12 games so far this year, while her 12 assists are second-most on the team.
Sam Cozzolino, Ossining: The senior attack scored 26 goals in four games this week, including back-to-back eight-goal efforts against Irvington on Wednesday and Clarkstown South on Thursday.
Raphaella Dasilva, Valhalla: The sophomore has been one of the main catalysts in her team’s seven-game winning streak. On Friday’s 18-15 win over Hastings, she led the way with six goals and three assists. In three games this week, Dasilva had 19 goals, five assists and won over 30 draw controls.
Mackenzie Korpi, Blind Brook: The senior midfielder had quite the day on Thursday against Sleepy Hollow, scoring five goals in a 7-6 win, the first one her 200th career goal and the last one being the game-winner. On the week, she had seven goals in two games.
Tatyana Petteway, Albertus Magnus: The senior goalie played a huge role in her team’s three wins this week. She made 12 saves and gave up four goals on Friday against Tappan Zee, with one save coming off of a free position despite having to start the play from behind the net. On the week, she made 19 saves and gave up 10 goals.
Liz Trojan, Suffern: The senior midfielder had a big day on Saturday, scoring four goals, including the winning goal, in the team’s 8-7 comeback win over St. Anthony’s. The Villanova commit also added an assist.
