Ranked number one in state, the varsity girls’ soccer team ended their regular season with a 5-0 win against St. Paul Academy on Saturday Oct. 9, bringing them into sections with an overall record of 16-0-1.

Junior Aly Hoffman managed to score the first goal of the game with an assist by Jordan Burns. “Scoring the first goal was awesome because it set the tone for the rest of our game,” said Hoffman.

Senior captain Emma Forschler scored one more goal in the first half, allowing the Red Knights to go into the second half with a 2-0 lead. St. Paul Academy attempted to score on BSM’s goalkeeper junior Mikayla Coulombe, but she made two sliding blocks to keep them from scoring.

Senior captain Alex Schissel didn’t think the team was playing their best at the beginning of the game, but at half time they realized what they had to do to play their best. Forschler proved this to be true, scoring yet another goal at the beginning of the second half.

Three seniors scored goals in the second half, boosting the spirits of their teammates. The first two goals were scored by Emma Forschler and Jordan Burns within two minutes of each other. Alex Rothstein added one more point to the Red Knight’s scoreboard, leading them into sections with high hopes.

Although all of the girls deserve credit for the way they played in the last game of their regular season, one player stood out to Schissel. “I think the key player in this game was probably Jordan Burns because she assisted a goal and scored a goal.”

The Red Knights pulled it together as a team in the second half, justifying the fact that they have the ability to do well in sections. “Aly Hoffman definitely made the best play when she sprinted all the way to the side lines to keep the ball in and ended up assisting Emma’s goal,” said Schissel.
