Girls Soccer – Week 7 Surf Taco Player of the Week: Marisa Tava, Toms River North
Surf Taco Week 7 Girls Soccer Player of the Week
Marisa Tava, Toms River North
It has took a total team effort for Toms River North to win the Shore Conference Tournament for the first time since 2012 so it was hard to pick just one Mariner to recognize for the run. Junior Emily Royson moved to center back to solidify the defense, sophomore Alexa Peto came up with a key play in both wins over Shore and Middletown North and Jaszmin Brown scored the game-winner against the Lions on Saturday.
Tava, however, got the nod as the Player of the Week nominee and ultimately the votes to win it. She continued to control the midfield and the attack with Royson moving back and being involved in so many key plays for the Mariners. The senior midfield recorded a goal and an assist both vs. St. John Vianney and Shore in Toms River North’s first two tournament games and beat a host of Middletown North defenders to initiate her team’s first goal on Saturday in the semifinal win over Middletown North.
Tava won this week's award with 43.9 percent of the vote, well ahead of runner-up Emily Clayton of Wall (15 percent).
