Girls Soccer: Tole Sends Verona Onto 6-1 Victory On Senior Night


VERONA, NJ - On a night honoring seniors for their athletic and academic dedication to Verona High School it was a junior who shared in the spotlight helping the Verona Girls Soccer Team to a 6-1 win over Newark East Side.

“It’s great to win on senior night, they did a really great job [as a team]. They are learning to play with each other so it’s really nice I can’t complain,” said Verona Head Coach Kerrin Goosman.

Junior Lara Tole who outworked the Red Raider defense throughout the contest shared the spotlight. Tole notched a season-high five goals in the contest for Verona to ensure that the fans who showed up went home happy. For Tole it’s been a hot streak to say the least as she’s notched seven goals and two assists in her last two games.

For Tole, she unselfishly thanked her teammate Sarah Carlucci for the success she’s been having as of late

“[Carlucci] and I have been playing with each other since we were real little and I guess the through balls where she split the defenders and I was on top so I ran right through it, I feel like those are the balls that have worked the most,” said Tole.

After a rough start where the Red Raiders took an early 1-0 lead in the 17th minute the Verona squad settled in. Senior goaltender Anna Rosinski managed to blank the East Side offense for the remainder of the contest to produce one of her best games of the season with an unofficial eight saves.

“[Rosinski] brings a lot of energy and always gets us going…I guess for her senior night she realized it’s one of her last [games] so she put it all out on the field,” said Tole.

For Verona, the senior night victory is even more special as the team has achieved one of its goals in eclipsing their win total of 2016.  The now 4-8 Lady Hillbillies have produced their first winning streak of the season and will look to make it three in a row with a game against Newark Academy on October 12.

“I feel like the past few games we’ve got together as a team, pass balls, and connect balls to win some games so it felt nice,” said Tole.
