Girls Soccer – Week 4 Surf Taco Player of the Week: Aileen Cahill, Pinelands
The Wildcats had another banner week to improve to 7-1-1, this time rolling up decisive wins over Barnegat and Donovan Catholic before knocking off Holmdel. Cahill was a machine, scoring eight of the team’s 16 goals during the week. The junior scored four goals in a 7-0 win over Barnegat, accounted for six of the seven goals vs. Donovan Catholic (two goals and four assists) and scored both goals in a 2-1 win over the Hornets.
With a win over Lakewood during this week, Pinelands clinched no worse than a share of the Class B South division championship and can win it outright with a perfect 7-0 division record by beating Manchester on Tuesday. After scoring two more goals in the win over Lakewood, Cahill now has 15 goals and seven assists for the season.
Cahill won this week's contest with 55 percent of the more than 6,500 votes cast, which beat runner-up Kate MacLeod (21.5 percent) of Rumson by more than 30 percentage points. Senior captain Gabi Triolo of undefeated Middletown North also checked in with a double-figure percentage of the vote, scoring 14.2 percent.
