Surf Taco Girls Soccer Week 1 Player of the Week

Ranya Senhaji, Monmouth

With six goals and at least one in each of her team's first three games, Senhaji is off to the races in her junior season. Monmouth's attacking midfielder helped carry the Falcons to two wins to open the season by posting a hat trick in a 5-0 win over Ranney and hammered home two more goals in a win over Mater Dei Prep during the first week of the season.

Monmouth took a significant step up in competition on Wednesday of this week, when the Falcons traveled to play a loaded Shore Regional side. While Shore handled the Falcons, 9-2, Senhaji showed she can score against the Shore Conference's best by scoring early in the second half to deny the Blue Devils a shutout.

Senhaji won this week's contest with more than double the vote total of the runner up. With 42 percent of the more than 23,000 votes cast, Senhaji beat out Howell's Julia Caccamo (20 percent) and Brick Memorial's Olivia Carney (18.5) for this the first Player of the Week award of the season.
