Girls Soccer: Five players to watch

Bella Sorrentino, Archbishop Carroll: Interesting things are happening at Carroll and while breaking into the Catholic League hierarchy isn’t easy, the Patriots could make noise. Sorrentino scored six goals last year and may increase that number with the general improvement around her.

Jess Shanahan, Episcopal Academy: The La Salle commit scored seven times last season, but the Churchwomen lost plenty of goals to graduation. How the central midfielder steps up to fill that void could determine EA’s success.

Kayla Allen, Penncrest: Impact goalkeepers are few and far between. Allen has that potential for the Lions, and the rebuilt defense in front of her puts a premium on her possible game-changing ability.

Maura Holst, Radnor: The Raiders have a third coach in as many years, but talent is hardly in short supply. Look no further than Holst, who scored nine goals as a sophomore last year.

Maddie Forbes, Strath Haven: Lizzie King got most of the goals and accolades last year. But Forbes is a potent complement to King. A speed demon on the wing, the junior could take the Panthers attack to a new level.
