NEWBURGH — On Thursday afternoon, Oct. 16, the Monroe-Woodbury Varsity Girls Soccer team played its last regular season game against the Goldbacks of Newburgh Free Academy.

The game was scheduled as a Crusader home game but was moved to Newburgh's North Campus because of field conditions.

The Crusaders entered the game with a 12-1-1 record and were coming off a 8-0 victory over Middletown on Monday afternoon.

The Crusaders took control of the game from the start. Just 4:06 into the game, Colleen Kinsella scored on a shot from close range after a scramble in front and quick passes form Liz Allen and Kaelyn Salato.

The less than two minutes later Kinsella hooked up with Salato on a long lead pass and she shot it into the Goldbacks net to make the score 2-0.

Twenty seconds later the Crusaders struck again when Josephine Sorce took a run down the side and hit Salato with a beautiful cross and she buried it into the Goldbacks net.

The Goldbacks finally got on the board on a breakaway 6:46 left in the half and the teams went into half time with the Crusaders up 3-1.

In the second half, the Crusaders shut down the Goldbacks attack and the Crusaders went on to 3-1 regular season-ending victory.

The Crusaders' victory brings their season record to 13-1-1.

Their next game will be decided at the OCIAA seeding which will happen later this week.
