Athlete of the Week
This week we’re honoring: Alyssa Boyer from the FSK Girls soccer team, and Nick Simoncini from the South Carroll Boys Soccer team, for our athletes of the week.
Alyssa Boyer is a defender on the Key varsity squad. She does not score goals and not too many assists, her job is to shut down the opponent’s attack. Key schedule was pushed to the limits this week due to weather playing 3 games in three nights and Alyssa played almost all 240 min (4 hours) for Key. Vs Winters Mill she had countless tackles and turn overs from Falcon break away runs.
She has had to play both the outside defender position as well as the center back due to other teammates not being available and she excelled in both spots. She is probably one of the fastest players in Carroll county soccer, she can be several yards behind or on the other side of the pitch and run down and tackle strikers denying the shooting opportunities.
Next is Nick, Last week, South Carroll Boys Soccer played 3 straight games (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) they scored a total of 9 goals and Nick scored 4 of them along with 2 assists as a Midfielder. they went 2-1 and out played all 3 opponents.
This Fall has not been the ideal soccer season due to the weather but with Nick’s leadership on and off the field they couldn’t have been prouder of this team
Congratulations to our Athletes of the Week: Alyssa Boyer and Nick Simoncini. Tune in next Wednesday morning at 7:30 and again Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 as we honor Carroll County’s finest high school varsity athletes on WTTR.
