West Babylon's Alyssa Murray has mastered the gift of giving - assists.

With Murray's seventh of a season-high nine assists Friday in an 18-4 Suffolk Division I win at Floyd, the West Babylon senior became the state leader in career assists with 278. She eclipsed Carolyn Davis, a 2005 graduate of Skaneateles, who had 275.

The goal, which was scored by Samantha Rush (six goals), came 1:13 into the second half.

Murray, who also scored three goals, has a Long Island-high 46 assists through seven games this season for the 7-0 Eagles.

Said Murray: "I always look to pass first. It's a team game, it's not about one person scoring goals."
