Soccer Roundup: Emerson, Waldwick, Park Ridge Girls Win

Article excerpt

EMERSON – Gianna Mancino had her hands full almost the entire second half and made every play.

The sophomore goalie made a majority of her 10 saves after intermission to help Emerson hold on for a 1-0 victory over division rival Midland Park in at Thursday's North 1, Group 1 girls' soccer quarterfinal.

Emerson took a 1-0 lead into intermission after Katelin Quinones scored from 10 yards on a breakaway late in the first half, with the assist going to fellow sophomore Courtney Callagy.

"That's a huge goal for Kate, a huge goal," Emerson coach Matt Lachman said. "She had a lot of chances, and I told her, 'Just keep working, working, working and get the reward,' and she got the reward."

Fourth-seeded Emerson (17-5) and No. 5 Midland Park (15-6) split a pair of regular season battles in the NJIC Patriot Division. Lachman shifted senior and 30-goal scorer Taylor Porcello to defense in the second half. Still, the shots kept coming, but Mancino caught them all.
