push forward, and by the time the eve-
ning unfolded, a 19-9 victory upped
their season record to 2-0.

e game did begin on the Carmel
end, though, and in between three goals
by Caroline Panzirer, the home team
took a 4-3 lead with 14:37 left in the
half. However, Carmel had to wait for
John Jay to score nine more goals before
they saw the net again.

And it really began in the center of
the eld with Mia DiChiara.

“Mia took ownership of the draw. She
did a great job placing it to our play-
ers on the circle,” said Coach Jess Mc-
Donough.

From there, McDonough added, “ e
team capitalized. It was a whole team
e ort.”

e overall results were hard to miss.
Panzirer nished with six goals, Shan-
non Nolan had ve goals and three as-
sists, Mia Puccio chipped in four goals,
and DiChiara added two of her own.
Aidan Summer’s ve saves in goal were
not to be overlooked, either.

Another change in direction on
ursday didn’t turn out so well, and the
Wolves fell 10-7 at Bronxville. So, they
turned back around on Saturday and did
it right with a 12-8 victory at Pelham.

e game began in typical fashion.
Panzirer opened the scoring at 24:20
after Shannon Nolan found the attacker
cutting in front. But neither team was
out of each other’s sight for very long.
Pelham scored at 19:52, and Kate Mer-
cer answered back 45 seconds later.

John Jay put up the next goal when
Georgia Wilmoth found Panzirer for
the second of her six goals, and it was
Pelham who kept the sightline close by
scoring 17 seconds later to make the
score 4-3.

e proximity stayed status quo until
Mia Puccio pounced on a rebound and
found the net with 3:23 left in the half.
Of course, Pelham stayed on point by
scoring with 42 seconds left in the half
and again 90 seconds after intermission.

A double shot by Panzirer at 21:34
and 20:48 gave John Jay another two-
goal edge, but Pelham was soon knock-
ing again. e Pelicans split the dif-
ference at 19:41 and the margin didn’t
budge for a full ve minutes.

Puccio would regain the two-goal
lead with her fourth on the afternoon,
and as it turned out, Pelham’s next goal
at 13:03 ended the cycle. e Wolves
scored four of the next ve, and the 3-1
record the girls headed home with de -
