Surf Taco Week 2 Girls Soccer Player of the Week

Taylor Bielan, Fr., Holmdel

Only a freshman, Bielan's first three games at the high school level were against three of the Shore's toughest programs over the last several years - Middletown South, Freehold Township and Shore Regional - and she more than held her own in three Holmdel losses.

Last week, the Hornets hung right with Shore Regional in a big A Central showdown before ultimately falling, 4-3. Bielan proved that she was ready for a big game, scoring two of Holmdel’s three goals in the loss – the first two goals of her high school career.

Bielan also assisted a goal in a 3-1 loss to Middletown South in the season-opener and during the current week, she tallied a goal and an assist in a come-from-behind win over Monmouth Regional.

Bielan won the first Player of the Week poll of 2019 with 37.5 percent of the vote, beating out fellow freshman Gianna Simon of Southern (23 percent). As the readers' choice for Player of the Week, Bielan will receive a $25 gift card to Surf Taco.
