There. Did that set the mood for you?

There’s only one week (and like, a handful of games) left in the regular season, and the close of this school year is coming up FAST. That also means there’s only a few editions of Girls Who Run This World left. If you think I’ve forgotten any great performances, email me. I tried to spread the love a little this week, so if you don’t see the usual names, you know why.

In the words of every athlete twitter/status message, ever: “Leggooooooooooooooooooooooooooo….”

Cynthia Del Core, Bay Shore – For as long as I’ve watched her, Del Core has been the type of player who makes those around her better. That sometimes means she has to share the limelight. Not this week. The senior had a career-high eight goals with one assist in a win over Hills and added five goals and three assists in the Marauders’ win over Floyd.

Christina Zolezzi, Lindenrhust – She had four of Lindenhurst’s nine goals against Port Washington but, more importantly, scored the winner off a rebound with 2:39 left in the second OT.

Nicole Levy, East Islip – Levy, why you so good? Sophomore had seven goals and four assists in a win against Connetquot.

Allison Kennedy, North Babylon – She had five goals and an assist over Brentwood and six goals over Commack.

Jessica Mazliah, Sachem North – Four goals, five assists and nine of Sachem North’s 16 points against Riverhead.

Marisa Colacino and the Mount Sinai defense – Well, they came up big, didn’t they? With the perfect season on the line, the Mustang defense held high-octane Babylon to five goals, while Colacino’s forced turnover led to Shayna Pirreca’s winner with eight seconds left in regulation.

Alyssa Pearce, Shoreham-Wading River – I saw this lovely display in person: Pearce scored four straight goals against Garden City to draw the Wildcats to within a goal in the 8-7 loss...which, against Garden City. I cannot stress this enough. She added four goals in the game against Miller Place the game before.

Taylor Mills, Sayville – She had four goals and four assists against Greenport/Southold/Mattituck and added six goals and three assists in a win over Islip.

Alexis Thompson, Huntington – Five goals and six assists in an 18-6 win over Deer Park.

Stefani Vagelatos, Comsewogue – The seniro had six goals and four assists for a career-high 10 points against Glenn and added four goals and four assists against Greenport/Southold/Mattituck.

Carley Seekamp, East Hampton/Bridgehampton/Pierson – She had eight goals and an assists against Bellmport and a three goals and seven assists against Glenn. Extra shoutout to teammate Melanie Mackin, who had a career-high six goals in that game.
