On October 11, the girls soccer team played Forest Hills High School and won by three points. After losing their last game to High School for Arts and Business, and with only a few games left in the season, the girls needed this win.

With two goals scored by senior captain Olivia McFadden, two goals scored by junior Paula Fraczek, and four saves by sophomore goalie Hallee Pell Brown, the team came ready to win.

In the second minute of the first half, Olivia scored the team’s first goal off an assist from Paula. That was the beginning of a galore of goals for THHS. Later in the game, Olivia returned Paula’s favor, passing the ball to her for the team’s second goal. Paula also scored the third goal for the team off an amazing corner kick that defied physics, soaring past the goalie’s hands and into the goal.

On the defensive side, senior captain Athina Mihaliadis did a good job applying pressure on Forest Hills’ forward junior Juliana Arango, forcing her to take a bad shot, which Hallee then saved. There was one defensive slip up-on a throw ball where a Forest Hills player beat THHS freshman Chelsea Chaug, who has been having a breakthrough rookie season, to the ball and scored Forest Hill’s first point. To close the game, Paula attempted another corner kick and Olivia headed it into the goal, making the final score 4-1 THHS.

With only four games left in the regular season, and ranked 6th in their division, these girls have to defeat some pretty hard competition to earn their spot as the fifth and final team in their division and make it into the playoffs.

Paula said, “Those are going to be really tough games, but as long as we work hard to improve upon the mistakes we’ve made in the past, we can match their level of skill and intensity and give them a run for their money.”
