Somers’ unbeaten streak continues with Class AA title win over Greeley

Undefeated Somers Triumphs Over Greeley to Claim Class AA Title

The highly-anticipated matchup between Somers and Greeley ended with a resounding victory for Somers, as they secured the Section 1 Class AA championship with a 3-1 win. The triumph marks Somers’ first sectional title in three years and solidifies their undefeated streak of 20 games.

The game started off strong for Somers, with goals from Tiana Righetti and Annie Maguire in the first half. With a 2-0 lead at halftime, the team was in good spirits and determined to maintain their dominance on the field.

Greeley, however, did not back down and made a strong comeback in the second half, with Sophia Ivanov scoring a goal just one minute after the break. But Somers quickly regained their composure and solidified their lead with a goal from Julia Arbelaez. Adrianna Cooke played a crucial role in the team’s success, assisting on all three of Somers’ goals.

The victory was met with jubilation from the Somers team, who have been working towards this moment for years. “Half of us on this team has been working for this for like four years, and we finally got it done, so it feels great,” said Somers senior Annie Maguire.

This win not only cements Somers’ status as Section 1 champions, but also sets them apart as the sole undefeated team in the section. Looking ahead, the team will face the Section 4 champion in the NYSPHSAA Class AA regional semifinals, aiming to maintain their streak.

The Somers coach, Kelci Hegg, emphasized the team’s determination and their refusal to be distracted by their undefeated streak. “We had a rough loss last year and we felt like we were a team that could’ve gone further,” said Hegg. “This year, we talked about going one step further, playing without fear. Our quote for this sectional run has been not forget everything and run, but forget everything and rise, and they’ve certainly risen to the occasion.”

This resounding victory for Somers is a testament to their skill and teamwork throughout the season. Their relentless attack, solid defense led by goalkeeper Julia Schmidberger, and the supportive energy within the team have propelled them to this remarkable achievement.

Somers’ unbeaten streak and their drive for success make them a force to be reckoned with in the upcoming regional semifinals. As they continue their journey, the team remains focused, inspired, and ready to take on any challenge that comes their way.
