Yes, I went throwback with the Destiny's Child "Say My Name" for the title. Got a request for another Beyonce-themed subject line on this, so we'll rock with it for another week. As always, suggestions and nominations are welcome. Shoot me an email or tweet at @StephenHaynes4.

And here are the girls who made us, well, write their names.

Nadine Hadnagy, Farmingdale
She had five goals and three assists in a 16-8 win over Port Washington and scored the go-ahead goal in their 14-13 win over Wantagh. “Nay Nay” also had two goals and an assist, and controlled the midfield defensively, in the Dalers’ 10-8 win over Eastport-South Manor in Saturday’s L.I. Challenge tournament.

Holly Logan, Cold Spring Harbor
She scored four goals in each of the Seahawks' three games last week – all wins. Logan also had six ground balls against Locust Valley, won five draw controls against Sacred Heart, and forced four turnovers against Massapequa. Big-time player doing all the little things.

Ashley Appel, Mepham
The senior had a career high eight points with three goals and five assists, and scored the go-ahead goal with 3:25 left in the Pirates' 18-16 win over Freeport last Tuesday.

Linda Marie Attanasio, Garden City
The senior anchors a defensive unit that dominated in the Trojans’ two wins last week. Wilton (Ct.) came in averaging 16.2 goals in its previous four games, but Garden City held them to five. Garden City also held Long Beach to three goals.

Cassie Cesario, Oceanside
The freshman had four goals and two assists, including the winner in sudden-victory triple overtime, for the Sailors in a 16-15 win over Friends Academy. Cesario had also tied it at 14 with two seconds left in regulation. (How's this for a shout-out/name drop: Cassie is the younger sister of U.S. figure skating star Samantha Cesario, whom you can read about HERE.)

Natalie Sulmonte, Island Trees
She continued the score-a-thon with 19 points in two games last week. Sulmonte had eight goals and four assists in the Bulldogs’ 18-12 win over Floral Park on Tuesday, and five goals and two assists in Thursday’s victory over Division.

Danielle Rosmarin, Port Washington
She had 15 points (11 goals) in three games last week. The Vikings, off to a rough start, had a solid rebound week with wins over Plainedge and Locust Valley.  Rosmarin had six points in each of those games.

Cate Soccodato, Our Lady of Mercy
The attack racked up three goals and five assists in a 23-15 win over Holy Trinity. The game was closer than the final score indicates, and Soccodato’s goal broke a tie at 15 with the 8:50 left. She also had five goals and three assists in a win over St. Francis Prep.

Lindsey Hoffman, East Meadow
Yeah, she's on again. Hoffman keeps getting tested and continues to answer the call. She made 17 saves in an 11-8 win over Clarke on Thursday, which gave the Jets (6-1) sole possession of first place in Conference III.
