The semi-final JV soccer game was held at SAR High School on Wednesday night, May 16. SAR Sting competed against the North Shore Lions for the third time this season, winning both previous games, so they were favored to win. Scoring the first two goals of the night was Zahava Butler with assists from Laura Brandwein. Brandwein played incredible defense, getting many rebounds, and also played amazing offense scoring the most goals for the team. Of course Emily Feit, star player of the team, outplayed her opponents throughout the game with her clever foot work, and managed to score two goals even though she mostly played defense. At the end of the first quarter, SAR was leading 5-0 and they finished the half strong with a score of 6-0. Other goals were scored by Amalia Labinsky-Fleischer and Gabi Mogilner. The Sting team continued to show their agility, speed and talent through the third quarter as they ‘mercied’ the Lions winning 9-0. While it wasn’t the highest scoring game, this was SAR’s first shutout of the season.
As the championship game approaches, it seems that the SAR girls JV soccer team is well prepared to take on their rivals, the Frisch Cougars. With their star goalie, Mogilner, and co-captain Feit, Sting Nation is ready to compete and hopefully bring home the JV girls soccer championship trophy. Let’s go Sting!
