Starting the new season off with a bang, the Strath Haven Varsity Girls Soccer team won an impressive kick-off game against Unionville High School 2-1 last Tuesday evening at Talen Energy Stadium. Junior midfielder Maggie Forbes scored in the first half, and freshman Lily Ostiguy scored the winning goal in the last 45 seconds of the second overtime, eliciting an exciting reaction from the Haven audience members and loud drum cadence from the Strath Haven pep band. Mr. Miraglia, the varsity girls soccer coach, stated in an interview with PA Pep Live that “Unionville’s the most talented technical team I’ve seen in a long, long time.” Similarly, senior goalie Claire Wolgast mentioned that “last year [the team] narrowly beat [Unionville] 1-0, so [they] knew [they] had to put in a good effort on Tuesday.” Wolgast finished with nine saves and stated that the best moment of the game was definitely Ostiguy’s winning shot. Despite the daunting task of playing in the Talen Energy Stadium, the home of Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union, the team played an exciting game and is looking forward to a great season.
