Sienna Boan, Jackson Liberty
The Lions freshman is quickly figuring out the high school game after scoring a pair of goals both against Manchester in a 5-0 win and in a 3-2 loss against a strong Brick side.
Julianna Caccamo, Howell
The Rebels turned in a big week with wins over Marlboro and Brick Memorial and Caccamo carried the goal-scoring effort by collecting seven of Howell’s nine goals in the two wins – including four in the victory over Brick Memorial.
Aileen Cahill, Pinelands
Cahill continues to shine for the Wildcats and her last week was just the latest example. The Wildcats senior notched two hat tricks – one vs. Central and another vs. Point Boro – and threw in an assist in each one.
Abby Cieri, St. John Vianney
The Lancers proved they are for real this past week with wins over three noteworthy programs – Middletown North, Colts Neck and Bridgewater-Raritan. Cieri, Jaime Heuser and Victoria Coppola all had big weeks for SJV and it’s Cieri who gets the nod as the nominee with two assists in the 2-1 win over Middletown North, two goals vs. Colts Neck and one of each in Sunday’s impressive 4-1 win over Bridgewater-Raritan.
Julia Fiorito, Toms River North
The defending Shore Conference Tournament champions rolled through three opponents last week and Fiorito was an offensive force in each win. The senior scored to beat Brick Memorial, 1-0, scored both goals in a 2-0 win over rival Toms River East, and chipped in the third goal in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Watchung Hills.
Neomie Franco, Freehold Boro
Franco scored only one goal this week but it was one of the biggest goals in the young 2019 season. Facing rival Freehold Township in an overtime classic, Franco came through with the golden goal in the second overtime period to help her Colonials stun the Patriots.
Abby Olexa, Toms River South
Olexa came and her team came to play in a 5-1 win over Holmdel last week. The Indians won going away thanks to a huge game by the freshman, who pumped in four goals in the one-sided win.
Bryn Radvanski, Matawan
Radvanski has been one of the driving forces behind Matawan’s strong start and that was on display last week. The senior standout scored both goals in a hard-fought, 2-2 draw vs. Red Bank and poured in ahat trick in a 6-0 rout of Mater Dei.
Hannah Reese, Jackson Memorial
Jackson Memorial’s magical start to 2019 continued last week with three more wins, including a big one over Hunterdon Central to cap the week. Reese was a factor in that one without scoring and in two earlier games in the week, she did plenty of scoring. Reese notched a hat trick in a win over Manasquan and followed that up with a goal in a 2-0 win over Toms River East.
Kayla Wong, Freehold Twp.
Freehold Township’s talented freshman center midfielder made her presence felt during a big week for her team, which encountered mixed results. Wong stepped up with a goal in a 1-1 draw vs. Manalapan and with her team needing a bounceback performance following Friday’s loss to Freehold Boro, Wong delivered a beautiful goal to get the scoring started in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Ridge.
