Coach's Comments: Alonzo scored two crucial goals for the team during last week’s games against Roy-Hart and Newfane. His goals and outstanding play helped seal the victory in both games. He works tremendously hard on his skills and developed into a tough two-way player that can change the moment of the game at any time!
Coach's Comments: Alex has been the sole goal-scorer this season. Alex is determined every single game to get that ball into the net. His attitude has improved over the past year and it has earned him a spot as a captain. Alex’s athleticism enables him to help the rest of the team with defending while maintaining the ability to run the ball up on offense when the opportunity arises.
Coach's Comments: Tyler has spent the last four weeks becoming the best soccer player that he can be. Tyler does not only rely on his incredible athleticism to get him through the soccer season, but wants to know more about the game and how he can contribute to the success of the team from a soccer standpoint. Tyler has been putting in work outside of practice to fine tune his soccer skills, and his work has really shown through in games. Tyler earned himself a starting position and rarely comes off of the field. His attitude is one for everyone to look up to.
Coach's Comments: Nora Hapeman was a key player in our wins against Barker, Newfane, and RoyHart this week. Nora scored a beautiful side-net goal against Barker and assisted Abigail Scanlan in a goal against RoyHart. Nora plays defensive center-mid and is brilliant at stealing the ball from opponents when they least expect it. She has extremely precise passes and great vision of the field. In practices and in games, there is never a time when she is not working her absolute hardest and that same work ethic is shown in her academics. Nora is always encouraging those around her and doing anything she can to help her team be the best they can be.
Coach's Comments: Alanna placed first in the season opener race against Wilson and Royhart. She ran away from the competition, leading the girls team to a start of 1-1 for the season.
Coach's Comments: Alyson Knaak was a key player in our wins against Barker, Newfane, and RoyHart this week. As an outside defender, Aly makes runs up the line to set teammates up to score and she has two assists this season by doing this. In any game when there is a strong forward on the other team, Aly can stop them from attacking. Aly shows an extremely strong work ethic all year around in soccer, basketball, softball, and in her academics. Aly can play an entire game with no breaks and never seems to tire. Her teammates can always count on her to give 110% and to encourage them in everything they do.
Coach's Comments: Olivia has put together a solid first half of this soccer season. As a midfielder she has gotten better each and every game. She is making better decisions, making faster and more accurate passes, and taking advantage of her scoring opportunities. She stepped up and played well for a game on Varsity against Akron, and then returned to JV and played her best all around game so far against Wilson (which included an important goal on a strong and well placed kick). Great job Olivia!
Coach's Comments: Camryn has had a fantastic season from the striker position. She has been competing relentlessly on every single possession, fighting through injury all season. Most recently she had a HUGE game in an important league contest against Roy Hart. She scored on a shot from about 20 yards out and had a beautiful crossing assist for the only two goals we scored in a tough 2-1 victory. She was the difference maker in that game. “Camryn is exactly the type of person, player, and competitor that any coach loves to have on their team."
Coach's Comments: Sydney Mulka made key saves in our 4-2 win over Newfane and in our 2-1 loss in double overtime against RoyHart. Sydney leads her team from the back with defensive directions and with contagious encouragement. Sydney practices with intensity and precision that is an example of her dedication to her teammates. Sydney demonstrates strong sportsmanship, academic diligence, and a hard work ethic in everything she does.
Coach's Comments: Jamie had her best game of the season against Newfane last week. She has scored several goals this season, but during this game she led with assists. She had the first three assists of the game getting her team off to a great start! Jamie does a lot to lead and get her team going in practice and pre-game. She is definitely the vocal leader on our team, and helps to keep everyone organized and on the same page. Jamie has challenged herself to grow as a leader, taking steps to try to be more positive during tough competition. I believe that her efforts in this area will continue to help her to grow and pay off in a positive way in the future.
Coach's Comments: Jahmeek has just earned his second assist, which is the team high. Jahmeek has been an unstoppable force on the field as a right midfielder. He has also done a wonderful job of taking over the sweeper position when the regular sweeper is injured. Jahmeek is always trying to improve and understand the game better.
Coach's Comments: Reuben placed 1st in the race against Barker and Akron. The last time an Albion runner has placed first against Barker dates back to 2012. He led his team to a victory over Akron and a close lossto Barker.
Coach's Comments: Iris has been the ROCK of our defense over the first three games of our season. She has completely locked down her side of the field, playing with toughness, intelligence and determination. She is our best all-around defender, has a high soccer IQ, and offensively has made accurate passes in important situations.
Coach's Comments: S’koi ran almost a two minute 5k personal best on Saturday. She has improved every race throughout the season. S’koi works hard and has a great attitude everyday and it shows from her great race on Saturday.
Coach's Comments: Abigail showed perseverance by scoring two goals in our game against Akron on Oct. 13 when our team was trying to come back from behind. Abby is passionate about the game, but even more passionate about playing for her teammates. She holds herself to the highest level of play and her teammates know they can always count on her to give 110%. Abby shows this commitment to excellence in both practices and games. She can often be found making her teammates laugh, encouraging them when they are down and giving them directions to help them. Abby currently has four goals and two assists in four games. Abby is a key leader on our team, both in skill and character.
Coach's Comments: Taylor has played great defensively over the last few games. She has made great reads, good decisions with the ball, and displayed growing confidence in games against Akron and Wilson. Opposing offenses have had a tugh time getting by her! She is a big reason why we have held opponents to two goals total over the last two games. Keep up the good work Taylor!
Coach's Comments: Colburn is the voice of the team. He's been absolutely wonderful in being the example of how to conduct oneself on the sideline. He is always cheering his teammates on and is often the most enthusiastic. He is a prime example of having the ¨we not me¨ mentality; Colburn´s spirit will be very hard to replace next year!
Coach's Comments: Brittany Spies-Hunt scored our only goal against Wilson by making a far post run and one-touching the ball into the net. This was a key goal in helping us gain momentum after being down 3-0. Brittany shows a growth mindset by always working to improve and doing that with enthusiasm. She can often be seen helping and encouraging her teammates, during wins, but especially during losses. Brittany leads by example with her work-ethic, determination, and kindness.
Coach's Comments: Claire Squicciarini won the ball repeatedly and set her teammates up to shoot in our 4-2 win over Newfane and in our 2-1 loss in double overtime against RoyHart. Claire plays with a selfless attitude that is demonstrated in the way that she steals the ball from the opponent and passes to teammates. Claire’s favorite thing to do on the soccer field is “assist others” and that is demonstrated both on and off the field. Claire comes to practice with a dedication to supporting her teammates by encouraging them, getting equipment for them, being kind to them, and pushing them on the field with her unwavering effort. Claire demonstrates strong sportsmanship in the face of adversity. She is a leader to her teammates on the field, off the field, and in school.
Coach's Comments: Abby has been dominant in goal over the first two games of our soccer season. She has played every minute and dedicated outstanding toughness, work ethic and determination. She competes at a high level every practice, setting the standard for her team-mates, leading by example every day.
