The Community Connection - - SPORTS - By Bill Ar­se­nault For Dig­i­tal First Me­dia

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.
