Women’s soccer ended their season Sat., Oct. 20. Coach Diane Pierangeli said they had an unfortunate loss to Marywood University. “This is the first season we haven’t made the play-offs,” Pierangeli said. The league record for women’s soccer this season was 9-7-1, and the final four teams in the league were Misercordia, Gwynedd Mercy, Eastern College and Marywood University.

Pierangeli said that they are looking to rebuild the team because there were several seniors this season. A key player on the team, Senior Captain Jess Stork, was nominated for the PAC all-conference team. Stork said the team was lacking in numbers and had many battles to overcome. “It was a hard season, but I had fun playing with the same girls for four years.” Stork said they relied on a freshman goalie and sweeper back to keep their defense together on the field. Their defense consisted of seniors and freshman. Overall, Stork said that this year’s team was very respectful on and off the field and that the freshmen “proved their leadership.” Stork is looking forward to indoor and outdoor tournaments in the spring. Stork also said the team had good repor, “The girls are very respectful, on and off the field.”

“There is an overall good feeling on the field,” said first-year student, Heather St. Amor. She also said that playing on the college level is very different from when she played in high school. “In high school they had to play you, but here you have to work for your position,” said St. Amor. Her hard work paid off. Coach Pierangeli said that Heather had a great year playing as sweeper back for the team.

Another player Coach Pierangeli mentioned was Jamie Matozzo, a senior captain. Jamie said it was a tough season. “We didn’t make it to playoffs but we all hung in there and fought to the end.Things don’t always go your way but you learn to make the best of it,” Matozzo said. It was a tough season and there were a lot of ups and downs but the girls stuck together and made a strong team for next season.

Coach Pierangeli is looking to rebuild her team next year since there are seniors this year who will be graduating. The team this year, however, did have a lot of first year students in their defense. Some freshmen on the team were Heather St. Amor, Cassy O’Neil, and Mary Mower. Pierangeli is looking forward to a great season next fall.
