Girls soccer takes senior night win against Yorktown; top 10 ranking awarded


PMHS girls soccer nabbed a tough 2-0 win over Yorktown on Oct. 10. The senior night victory came in their third to last game of the season.

Pelham scored late in the first half with an outside-of-the-box shot by senior Rebecca Nicholas finding its way into the top left corner. In the second half, senior captain Mia Orlando played a cross to junior Alle Hughes, who was able to slot it in for the second goal. Goalkeeper Kaitlyn Howell, a senior, came up big in the net, saving nine out of 12 shots and securing a shutout against a strong Cornhusker team.

“It was really memorable to win such a competitive game for senior night,” said sophomore centerback Alex Dolen. “We were all so excited to celebrate the seniors one last time.”

Recently, the Pelicans have also taken down Edgemont and Ardsley, putting them on Lohud’s top 10 list after previously not being ranked.

Pelham advanced to the playoffs with a record of 9-4-2. First round they will play Sleepy Hollow at Glover on Saturday.
