Strong start for South Side
(Page 2 of 2)
Hoeffner, who registered nine points (five goals, four assists) in a 15-5 victory over visiting Baldwin in the conference opener April 3, is a powerful two-way player who owns one of the strongest shots on the team. She’s scored in each of the first five games and has 10 goals. Serling, who has 12 goals, creates a lot of her own scoring opportunities and is an accurate shooter. Juniors Katie Ford and Allie Ford also work out of the midfield and help lead the team’s transition game by creating takeaways.
On attack, the Lady Cyclones feature juniors Maggie Cifarelli and Briar Rose DeTomasso, and sophomore Tessa Considine. “They work very well together and trust each other,” Healey noted.
Defensively, senior Michaela Beck is the lone returning starter and anchor of a group that includes talented sophomore Anna LePetri. In goal, junior Julie Flanagan and sophomore Alyssa Knab are splitting time.
After reaching the Nassau Class B semifinals a year ago, Healey said finishing atop Conference II is a goal. “We’d like to win the conference and go as far as we can in the playoffs,” she said.
