Mineola rolls over Sewanhaka 6-0

Mineola rolls over Sewanhaka 6-0

The Mineola Lady Mustangs defeated the Sewanhaka Lady Indians 6-0 on Tuesday afternoon led by two goals and an assist by Nicole Genova’s and two goals from 
Allison Mendes. 
Mineola head coach Katherine Bennett said the team played well with everyone contributing. 
“They had a much better field sense and awareness of where their teammates were,” Bennett said. “There were lots of give and goes and passing around to each other. They were gelling better and did really well.”
Sewanhaka head coach Eric Premisler said the girls were fired up before the game but they got off to a slow start.
“We had a tough time putting the ball in the net this season,” Premisler said. “When we fall behind, it’s tough to come back. It’s hard for us to battle back when we get down quickly.”
In the first half, Mineola outshot Sewanhaka by a commanding 12-1 margin and controlled the pace of play. 
Four minutes and 42 seconds into the game, Genova gave Mineola an early 1-0 lead. 
She streaked down the right side of the field, cut inside the box and beat Sewanhaka goalkeeper Paola Aquino for the game’s first goal.
Mendes gave Mineola a 2-0 lead a minute and twenty four seconds later. 
Mendes forced a turnover in Sewanhaka’s end, sprinted to the box and kicked it past Aquino to add to their lead.
With 15:10 left in the first, Christina Cardinal scored on a pass from Emma Feimer to give Mineola a three goal lead. 
At halftime, Mineola led 3-0. 
Eight minutes and twenty five seconds into the second half, Mendes netted her second goal of the game, giving Mineola a four goal cushion.
Two minutes and five seconds later, Genova scored her second goal of the game on a strike from outside the Sewanhaka box to make it a 5-0 game.
With 18:56 left to play in the game, Genova assisted on a goal by Daniela Restrepo to cap off the scoring, giving Mineola a 6-0 lead. 
Mendes said a big factor in her performance was sending the ball across the field and getting the forwards more involved by letting them get the ball to the net.
Genova said it was a big help to have people on the outside cross it in for the goal scorers to finish their chances. 
“I ran around a couple of girls and I got the opportunities,” Genova said. “The girls were spreading out on the field, which gave me enough space in the middle.”
Bennett said Genova and Mendes both took charge of the field and played a great game, as they combined for four goals and an assist. 
“They have some of the best footwork of any of the girls on our team,” Bennett said. “They both have speed and the ability to move around players and put the ball in the seam.”
