Sierra Echevarria’s goal gives North Babylon the win

 

By Owen O’Brien  owen.o'brien@newsday.com

October 4, 2017

It took all of 47 seconds for the North Babylon girls soccer players to reclaim what they felt was rightfully theirs.

“We were just really mad that we lost the lead,” midfielder Sierra Echevarria said. “This was a game we really wanted. We really needed this to push us forward.”

That push started from midfield when the Bulldogs wasted little time after Deer Park tied the score at 1 on Kasey Dorney’s penalty-kick goal with 7:43 remaining in the game.

North Babylon’s Alexa Scaglione led a charge down the field and found Echevarria, who scored the game’s winning goal with 6:56 left in the host Bulldogs’ 2-1 victory over Deer Park in Suffolk IV soccer Wednesday. It was North Babylon’s eighth annual Kicks for Cancer fundraiser game.

“I was very excited,” Echevarria said. “My shots never go in the back of the net, this one did. It felt really good to score in a big game like this.”

North Babylon coach Steve Corrado emphasizes to his team the importance of attacking following a goal.

“We always talk about two minutes after a goal and five minutes left in the half, how it’s the most vulnerable time for a team,” Corrado said. “And we try to turn it up after every goal the next two minutes because teams work their butts off to tie the game and sometimes you have the tendency to get on your heels for a second.”

North Babylon (6-4) kept Deer Park off the scoreboard for most of the game with the strong backline play of Nicola Calabrese, Taylor Calvente, Nia Griffith, Chloe Jean-Charles and Kaila Jean-Charles. Corrado gave Kaila Jean-Charles the responsibility of shadowing Dorney, who has eight goals this season for Deer Park (5-5).

“It means a lot to know that (coach) has my back and he can count on me playing one of the toughest people out there,” Kaila Jean-Charles said. “Moving forward, I know I can handle anyone.”

And any time a play broke through the defense, Aubrey Gunther was there to make highlight saves, finishing with seven stops.

“If it wasn’t for some of those key saves,” Corrado said, “it could have been 2, 3-0 before we had an opportunity to score a goal.”

The Bulldogs’ Samantha Quigley scored the game’s first goal, intercepting a clear attempt with 14:09 remaining.

“It’s always motivating because we’re always honoring someone we care about,” Quigley said. “Then playing a team like that who we have a rivalry with and be able to come out with a win was pretty good, pretty rewarding.”

Dana Scheriff's two goals lead North Babylon to League III victory

September 24, 2014 9:56 PM
By MIKE GAVIN  michael.gavin@newsday.com

The story was posted on www.newsday.com on Sept. 24, 2014

There's a new sheriff in town. Her name is Dana Scheriff.

The North Babylon forward has been laying down the law on offense. With two more goals in a 6-1 girls soccer win over Copiague Wednesday, she increased her season total to 13, which leads Suffolk.

"This year I gained a lot of confidence in my game that I didn't have last year," she said. "I go on the field hoping not to walk off with any regrets."  Not many regrets this year, just a whole lot of goals.

Scheriff, who is adept with both feet and makes quality runs off the ball to put herself in scoring position, has scored in seven of eight games while leading North Babylon (5-1) to the top of League III.

Wednesday, she received a through ball, eluded the goalkeeper and tapped the ball into the net to give North Babylon a 3-0 lead midway through the first half. It was her fifth multigoal game of the season and brought her closer to tripling her total of five goals from last season.

Scheriff's breakout season on the offensive end has been aided by the emergence of sophomore Julia Katsock. Call her the deputy of the midfield.

"Julia has a good eye," Scheriff said. "She knows the speed and ability of the player so where to play the ball."

Katsock, a distributor with speed, has filled the playmaking role that Scheriff played in her first two seasons on varsity.

"I try and distribute evenly and get it to my players," Katsock said. "I know that no matter who I get it to they are all confident with the ball."

That includes forwards Allison Kennedy and Amanda Wroblewski, who have already helped the Bulldogs surpass the 28 goals they scored last season.

Kennedy had a goal and an assist Wednesday. Dominique Melito opened the scoring 1:57 in.

Copiague goalkeeper Maraya Jones played better than the score indicates, often coming off her line to challenge. She made 19 saves, including multiple diving stops. Nicolette Vasseur knocked in a goal for Copiague with 4:51 remaining.

But the Bulldogs' starting defense -- led by captain Angela DiFazio, a goalkeeper who closes down angles well, and her lieutenants in the backfield: Allyson Eifert, Diana Orsini and Alexis Rutha -- had held the Eagles scoreless before taking a seat on the bench.

"We're good at moving the ball around the field," Rutha said. With Scheriff up top, it "takes a lot of pressure off the defense because we know there is someone who can finish it. It's our job to defend our goal and get the ball to her."

In other words, serve and protect.

Colts Storm Back, Fall In OT To North BabylonRowBlessKey

DIX HILLS, New York, September 18

BY: Andrew Wroblewski

Article can be found at www.andrewwroblewski.wordpress.com

After storming back from a 1-0 deficit to take a one-goal lead in the second half, everything looked good for the Half Hollow Hills High School West girls’ varsity soccer team on Sept. 11 against the Bulldogs of North Babylon.

Then the clock read 8 seconds.

At that time, the Colts’ plan for a comeback was foiled by North Babylon’s junior midfielder Dana Scheriff. After winning the ball atop the Colts’ box, the junior snuck past two defenders and chipped Hills West’s goalkeeper Joanna Musacchia to send the game into overtime.

In overtime, Scheriff broke through once again and only to break the Colts’ hearts as another breakaway led the Bulldogs (2-1) to a 3-2 victory over the Colts (2-1) in a League III opener.

“The girls played great; they played together… But unfortunately we came out with the loss,” Colts’ Head Coach Amanda Strack said after the game. “[We] played hard and fought until the end.”

With 5 minutes left to play in the first half, North Babylon senior midfielder Kayla King opened up the scoring by placing a free kick into the top right corner of the net – just out of reach for Musacchia.

The half came to a close shortly after, but then – in the second half – Hills West was able to capitalize on a free kick as senior defender Angelique Chatpar stepped up to the ball with just 13 minutes left to play. Calm, cool and collected, Chatpar drilled a shot low, to the right corner of the net where Bulldogs’ goalkeeper Angela DiFazio was able to get a hand on it, but not quite enough to keep the Colts off of the scoreboard..

With the momentum now on their side, Hills West kept pressuring the Bulldogs and was able to break through again on a set piece, this time when senior Arianna Sabatino used her head to slickly maneuver the ball around DiFazio and into the back of the net.

As time ran down in the half, though, the Bulldogs did some pressuring of their own and the Colts – although seconds from victory – just weren’t able to sustain the defensive effort.

“We dominated, we did,” Strack said. “[But] we’ll get them next time.”

Missed opportunities, Strack added, played a part in the Colts’ downfall.

In the first half, Hills West drew a penalty kick, but junior midfielder Katina Cokinos put the resulting shot just wide of the net.

While the Colts still trailed by one in the second half, Sabatino had a chance to even things up with 26 minutes left to play when a cross came along to her deep in the box near the left goalpost. Sabatino tried to place the ball into the corner of the net – and would have been successful in doing so – but DiFazio foiled her plans by pushing the ball wide of the net.

“We have to work on finishing,” Strack said. “[With] just a little bit more possession [and] keeping our composure, [I think] we’ll be alright.”

Colts’ junior midfielder Katina Cokinos reads the field last Thursday in Hills West’s opening League III match against North Babylon.

Moving forward, the Colts seemed to have less trouble finishing this week when they took on both Riverhead (0-3) and Copiague (0-3) – on Monday and Wednesday respectively – and twice came out with a 7-0 victory.

On Friday, Hills West will play host to Centereach (1-2) at 4 p.m.
