The Auburndale Dragons moved into first place, thanks to a convincing 5-2 victory against the Valley Stream Shamrocks at LIJSL headquarters in Plainview, Long Island.
Once again Danielle Magnozzi continued her prolific scoring, netting a brace before the game was 10 minutes old. She added two more goals in the second half to net four goals in a match for a second straight week.
The midfield trio of Deanna Lucci, Katie McPhillips and Gina Giraldi were dominant for the most part, and after Valley Stream sliced its deficit in half, Katie fastened on to a delicate through ball from Gina, to make it 3-1 just before the break.
Ali Crocitto replaced Celeste Trevellini in goal to start the second half. Celeste took over Ali's left fullback position and both girls adapted very well in their new slots. Kristen Pulley worked like a trojan at right fullback, rarely giving the Shamrocks an opportunity and she was aided by the ever reliable Deanna and Sabrina Blaskovic. Erin McKenna worked hard, and Samantha Ubertini never backed off, in a winning cause.
The Dragons face Massapequa Pride twice this weekend in a league tilt Saturday and the Waldbaum's Cup in the semifinals Sunday.
