Not only did Mary score the first goal of the game in the fourth minute, she scored the second goal of the game in the fifteenth minute and the last goal of the game in the seventy second minute. Leading the Pirates to a 6-0 win against the Colorado Springs School, these were the first three goals of Mary's high school career. Coming from her only three shots on goal, St. Mary's leading scorer for the game showed poise, flair and skill in her sixth varsity appearance.
Mary not only recorded the assist on the Pirates only goal in the first half, on a spectacular shot from Katie Fowler, but Mary then scored the next goal to open a four goal second half. Her hustle and relentless pressure plus passing and encouragement to her teammates fueled a resounding 5-0 victory for St. Mary's going into Easter break.
Getting the Pirates started on the right foot (pun intended), Mary scored the season's fastest goal 26 seconds into the match. Not to be stopped, she again scored less than two and a half minutes later to put her team up 2-0 less than three minutes in. Her relentless battling on and off the ball, whether up top or in the midfield, led her teammates to a signature home win entering the final week of the regular season.
Mary had a stellar game out of the gate for the Pirates on opening night at the Grace Center. She scored two goals and had two assists to lead St. Mary's in the stats column. However, she earned her accolade when, early in the second half, she finished a Marisa Shigio free kick from 35 yards out with a gorgeous one-touch volley which found the back of the net for her second goal. Her second assist was on the last goal of the game, exhibit letter A in showing her tireless work rate over the course of the game.
