NTL GIRLS' SOCCER: WYALUSING HAS A RECORD BREAKING YEAR ON THE PITCH
(2023-11-13)Northern Tier Sports Report
Wyalusing girls’ soccer continued to make history this season, with Olivia Haley being their first 100 goal scorer in program history, along with the team breaking their single season wins record.
“Overall, I think it was a really good year for our soccer program,” said coach Gary Haley. “14 wins is the most wins we have ever had in a season. During the regular season we had big wins against everyone in the league, except league champions, Troy. Making it back to the district playoffs, winning a game, and advancing to the semifinals of the district is also something the girls should be proud of.”
The Rams went 13-5 in the regular season, going 1-1 at the Meadowbrook Tournament to star the year.
They returned home to a get a big 2-0 win over Williamson, then hit the road to beat Loyalsock 3-0.
They battled Troy tough in a 1-0 loss at home, then rattled off six straight wins.
The highlights were a 6-5 win over rival Towanda, a 2-1 win over rival NEB, and a 5-4 victory on a late Saturday night at Millville.
A 4-0 loss to Troy ended the streak, and that was followed by a 1-0 defeat to NEB.
The Rams rebounded with a 6-1 win over NPM, then blanked Athens 3-0 in the match that saw Haley get her 100th goal.
After a 2-0 loss to Sullivan County they ended the season strong with wins over Athens (2-0) and Wellsboro (4-0).
In the first round of districts they got their first playoff win against a non-NTL team, beating Juniata Christian 2-0.
They eventually lost to district runners up, Meadowbrook Christian, 5-2 in the semis.
They’ll say good-bye to three seniors - Haley, Mia Wilcox, and Chloe Kelly - with Haley finishing the year with 37 goals and 10 assists.
That’ll be a tough hole to fill, but they return 18 players including forward Chloe Bennett, keeper Sophia Alvarez, defenders Annamary Slocum and Treanna Nickson, and mid-fielders Vayda Rought, Alysha Botts, Addisyn Bly and Makenzie Kintner, as they continue to work towards a league title.
“They worked hard, and we are getting closer to where we ultimately want to be at the end of the year,” said Haley.
