Statistics for 2020: 5 goals

The Cougars’ only loss that fall was a 1-0 game against the undefeated Montclair, who was dead even to the last minutes. The defensive was great all year long, as was the offensive with the way college students Bella Douglas and Sofia Vinasco played in 2020. This autumn, Skipper was third in the team with five goals. “
Molly Brumbach, Montclair, Sr.
Statistics for 2020: 64 saves, 10 shutouts

The talented junior made 64 saves for a defensive that conceded just five goals throughout the year. In some games, Brumbach didn’t have to make too many saves, but the stops she came up with were groundbreaking. The junior had one of her best games of the season in a goalless draw with Scotch Plains-Fanwood. She was also solid with a 1-0 one-two in overtime against Ridgewood in the regional playoffs and made a handful of big saves to secure the shutout.
Katie Aglione, Rumson-Fair Haven, Sr.

Madison Krakower, DePaul Jr.
Statistics for 2020: 16 goals, 10 assists
2020 All-State Biography: “In her first season in high school football, Krakower took on the offensive leadership role for DePaul.

Krakower is part of a bright future at DePaul. “
Mary Cochran, Ramapo, Sr.
Statistics for 2020: 13 goals, 4 assists
2020 All-State Biography: “Cochran was one of the best players in North Jersey this fall, leading Ramapo with 13 goals and four assists. In games where the junior either scored or assisted, Ramapo was perfect. Cochran scored their biggest goal of the season in the opening game when he shot a free kick into the net to give the Raiders a 3-2 win in extra time against rivals Northern Highlands. William and Mary sign Mia Suchora and Pittsburgh sign Haley Schmidt in midfield. Ramapo didn’t play in the postseason, but beat the team that won the tournament in the regular season. “
Cami Silvestro, East, Sr.
Statistics for 2020: 14 goals, 6 assists
2020 All-State Biography: “The Army is setting an intermediate time between striker and midfield this season, but it really didn’t matter where Eastern put them. Silvestro came through in both places as they put together a season of 14 goals and six assists. The junior ended the year scoring goals in 13 of Eastern’s last 14 games. She made a strong stand against Cherokee in the regional semifinals, scored the decisive goal and supported the game winner in double overtime. The only game Silvestro failed to score on the track was a 1-0 extra time win over Bishop Eustace, decided by an own goal. Eastern was perfect this year and its offensive was deadly as Silvestro, Riley Tiernan, Sydney Ritter, Devyn Shapiro and Hayley Marsden were reinforced. “
Klio Kokolis, East, Sr.
Statistics for 2020: 3 goals, 3 assists
2020 All-State Biography: “The East was perfect this fall with a team that had a stable of elite goal scorers and a defense that played light all year round.
