Girls soccer first-time goal scorers
It's that time of year where we begin to assemble our annual list of Long Island’s first-time goal scorers in girls varsity soccer.
The list will continue to grow as we update it throughout the season. Coaches, if we are missing one of your goal scorers, e-mail us at Michael.Gavin@newsday.com and Laura.Albanese@newsday.com so we can include them. Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter at @MikeGavin7 and @AlbaneseLaura for all things girls soccer.
Without further ado, here are the girls who found the back of the net for the first of what will hopefully be many goals in their careers…
