It’s been nearly three years since the Riverview Rams Varsity Girls (6-1) played the Venice Indians (3-4), and by the time the final horn sounded, there was no doubt the two teams were ready to rekindle the rivalry. The Rams jumped out to a quick, 5-0 lead halfway through the first half when Caroline Steinwachs and Susan Lowther each snapped in a couple goals for the Rams, along with another goal by Clara Keyvani, but Venice’s Sophia Santagata quickly contribute an early hat trick (3 goals) to trim the Riverview lead to 8-5 when the first half ended. In the second half, the Indians started to mount a comeback when Senior Gianna Falbo and Santagata each scored three more goals, but it was not enough to close the gap on the Rams lead, as Riverview went on to secure the 13-11 win.
Riverview’s Lowther had another strong game, picking up eight points (2G/6A), 6 draw control wins and 6 groundballs. Senior Clara Keyvani had one of her best games of the season, scoring 4 goals. The freshmen Caroline Steinwachs continued her offensive prowess, finding the back of the net four times. Defensively, Emily Hazlett was instrumental in forcing 3 Venice turnovers and picking up 2 groundballs, as well as a goal. But there was no doubt, without the 11 critical saves by the Rams’ goalie, Mia Rey, this game could have easily had a different outcome.
Venice’s Sophia Santagata led the Indians with 6 goals.
