Last week: Standout performers from high school girls soccer for Sept. 12-18

Julia Arbelaez, Somers

The impact sophomore has had a big role in the Tuskers' hot start and added another great week on the pitch individually. She had three goals and an assist in a win over Pearl River, and also chipped in a goal and an assist in a victory over Pelham. She's instrumental in creating opportunities in the attacking third, but also helps relieve the pressure off the midfield.

Grace Burns, Albertus Magnus

She racked up eight goals and four assists as the Falcons stayed undefeated through wins against Hastings and a pair of victories against Dobbs Ferry. Burns scored or assisted in at least three goals in each of those games, including back-to-back hat tricks against the Eagles.

Amalia Cardo, New Rochelle

The Huguenots junior enjoyed a big week, where she played a role in each of New Rochelle's wins over Ursuline, Scarsdale and Mount Vernon, totaling five goals and three assists during the 3-0 stretch.

Gabriella Chioccola, Briarcliff

The high-motor senior captain never missed a minute on the pitch and continues to swarm all over, helping the Bears finish 2-1 in a week that included wins over Bronxville and Westlake, and a loss to Blind Brook. Even in defeat, she played well against the Trojans, logging one assist. She also netted two goals against Bronxville and had a free kick that led to another goal in the win over Westlake.

Allie Cloutman, Irvington

The sophomore defensive midfielder helped the Bulldogs pick up lopsided wins over rivertown rivals Hastings, a 4-0 shutout, and Dobbs Ferry, a 4-1 result. While her defensive presence was important, she also helped pack a punch offensively, chipping in two goals against the Yellow Jackets, then a goal and an assist against the Eagles.

Lyla Keenan, Rye

The sophomore midfielder recently returned from injury and had an immediate impact in the Garnets' wins over Byram Hills and Mamaroneck. She had one goal and one assist against the Bobcats, then finished the week with an assist against the Tigers.

Kayla McGuigan, Sleepy Hollow

She helped the Horsemen bounce back from an early loss to Hen Hud, with victories over John Jay-Cross River and Fox Lane. She dished out an assist in a close 2-1 win over the Wolves, then had a hat trick in their shutout win over the Foxes.

Ananya Venkata Girish, Edgemont

The freshman goalkeeper helped the Panthers go 3-0 for the week, registering shutouts against Peekskill and Byram Hills, and helping Edgemont to victory in a win over Brewster. Her big week was highlighted in a Class B marquee matchup with Byram Hills, where she kept the Bobcats off the board and registered a dozen saves.

Welyn Waterhouse, Hackley

The senior standout played a role in all five of the Hornets goals during their two-game stretch against Sacred Heart-New York City and Poly Prep, and finished with three goals and two assists in another productive week.
