Sun Nov 19th, the Florham Park Landsharks closed out their season with a 2-1 win against the Roxbury Ruckus to finish the season as Flight Champions.
The weather was cold, the wind was howling and the field soft and muddy as the Landsharks faced a Ruckus team with only one loss from a prior shark attack.
Goals were scored by Astrid Youngren and Olivia Franco.
The Youngren goal was set up by a wonderful passing combo going from Parv to Caitlyn in the corner, back to Parv at near post and then to Astrid for the goal. The second goal was scored off a kickoff where Olivia “the tank” Franco took the ball to goal unassisted from midfield.
Playing at forward were Astrid Youngren Parv Chiarella.
Ally Massarano, Ava Adochio, Olivia Franco and Tori Henning played strong at midfield stopper along with Caitlyn Fenyk at a strong midfield position.
Camryn Sward anchored the defense along with a late season adjustment, Avi Tenore joining the defensive side of the field. Avi used her speed and ball handling to really make a difference in the game.
In goal Patsy Shallis was a ball eating landshark coming up with save after save to keep the score in favor of the Landsharks.
Alley Burmeister stayed warm and spent the day with Mickey Mouse!
