Friends’ Central girls soccer team wins league opener

The Friends’ Central girls’ soccer team (3-1-2) defeated Friends’ Select 6-0, Tuesday in its league opener in a match that featured multiple goals from Izzy MacFarlane, multiple assists from Jordyn Paszamant, and Julia Navek scoring her first career goal.

“Building off of last year where we lost only one senior – Phebe Guenther – and keeping that progression is key,” said FCS senior Brynne Mennen. “We only lost one senior [to graduation last spring] and I think the early season success we have had definitely gives the underclassmen confidence as the season goes on and it feels great we are playing together as a team and having success.”

Tuesday, the Phoenix got off to a 5-0 halftime lead.

“Our only senior from last year, Phebe [Guenther], taught me how to be positive and how to keep things fun when they needed to be fun and serious when it needed to be serious,” said MacFarlane. “She was a great role model for us.”

The victory capped a three-game win streak in which they have allowed only one goal.

“To see us continue to get better and be able to build on last season means a great deal,” said MacFarlane. ‘Our chemistry and trust on and off the field have played a big role in our success.”

“We are a close group,” added Mennen. “Every year we try to have team breakfasts and team dinners during the pre-season.”
