Margaret Creevy, Pinelands
Winners of eight straight, Pinelands had no problems with Lakewood or Brick this week. Creevy scored twice and added two assists to a team effort against Lakewood. She also scored against Brick in another Pinelands win. Pinelands is seeded 12th for the SCT with a home game against Matawan on Tuesday.
Julia DeGeorge, Ocean
Ocean earned wins over Matawan and Point Boro this week and can thank the consistency of freshman Julia DeGeorge for them. Starting off the week hot with a hat trick against Matawan, DeGeorge scored once in a 3-1 loss at SJV and again at Boro.
Julia Eichenbaum, Shore
The senior was the only goal scorer for Shore in a loss to RBC, but was just getting started as Eichenbaum scored three times and assisted another goal in a win over Somerville. Shore won easily, 6-1, and will be the sixth seed in the SCT. They’ll await the winner of Trinity Hall and Brick for their first tournament game.
Cassandra Ferguson, Neptune
Snapping a four-game losing streak with wins over Red Bank Regional and Monmouth this week, Ferguson set the tone for the Fliers by scoring all three of their goals against Red Bank. She added two more in another home win against Monmouth, 3-2.
Julia Gang, Freehold Boro
A perfect week for Freehold Boro sends them into the SCT on a three-game win streak, claiming the 15th seed. Julia Gang provided a spark for them with a hat trick at Long Branch and another goal in a 2-1 win vs. Marlboro.
Reagan Pauwels, Red Bank Catholic
The Caseys had multiple candidates for player of the week, as expected from the third seed in the SCT. Pauwels’ hat trick against Shore gives her the nod as RBC’s nominee, as she also assisted on one of four goals at Holmdel in a 4-3 win.
Emma Ryan, Toms River East
The senior recorded a hat trick in a 6-0 Raiders win over Manchester, also tallying an assist. Ryan followed up this performance with a one goal, two assist outing in another shutout win over Marlboro. TRE is the 18th seed in the upcoming Shore Conference Tournament, beginning play at Freehold Boro on Tuesday.
Ranya Senhaji, Monmouth
Senhaji was the only source of offense for the Falcons this week, pouring in eight goals over three games. Sandwiched between a pair of 3-2 losses at Rumson and Neptune was a Monmouth win vs. Manasquan, where Senhaji was responsible for all four goals in the 4-0 decision.
Heather Van Deventer, Point Boro
Van Deventer started her week with a goal against crosstown rival Point Beach, a 2-1 home win for the Panthers. She then added two goals in a 4-0 win over Manchester.
