Haley doing it all for Albright soccer
Lauren Haley’s play with the Albright women’s soccer team has not gone unnoticed.
The 5-foot-8 sophomore forward, a Boyertown Area grad, was named MAC Commonwealth Offensive Player of the Week on Oct. 22. It was her fourth weekly honor and she became the first player in program history to accomplish that feat in one season.
Haley leads the Lions with 25 points on 11 goals and three assists. She’s had four game-winners including the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over Lebanon Valley on Oct. 20 to help her win her latest league honor. The other winners came against Marywood, Hood and Delaware Valley. She scored three goals against both Marywood and Hood.
“Lauren has been amazing this year,” coach Pat Stanco said. “Her hustle and tenacity is what has helped us the most. She does not take any plays off and her work rate makes her the player she is. She has added timely goals again and again and I expect her to score or create chances in every game.”
Albright is 10-3-2 overall and 4-2-1 in league play after a 1-1 tie with Widener in a league game last Wednesday in Chester. Haley had an assist on the Lions goal.
