Anyone who doubted Queens II would be up for grabs in girls soccer need just look at last week's results for proof. The Newtown Pioneers, picked by many as the division favorite, tied Bryant 1-1 on Wednesday and then lost to Forest Hills 2-1 on Friday afternoon at Newtown.
The Forest Hills Rangers, 7-0-2, also beat Arts & Business, 5-1 Monday to take a slight lead in the three-team race between them Newtown and Bryant.
In the win over Newtown, it was the heroics of Stefany Feliciano that paced Forest Hills as she scored twice in the first 20 minutes. The loss drops Newtown to 2-1-1 in the division.
Ana Borges has also been on fire for Forest Hills, netting a hat trick against Arts & Business. She has 20 goals on the season.
"We do have a slight edge now," said Forest Hills head coach Bob Sprance. "It's going to come down to one goal. The games are going to be real close. But it's good that we have the home field."
