Moments following her third shutout consecutively, 4th of the season and 22nd of her career, DiPasquale was chased having a water cooler transported by her peers following No. 6 Paramus’ 2- conquer No. 19 Indian Hillsides.
Better still, and most importantly to DiPasquale, it arrived a large, early-season victory in a game title featuring a couple of North Jersey’s feel-good tales of September with teams already making early-season claims within the Large North Freedom.
Through five games, though, just one team — No. 1 Northern Highlands — finds a method to determine DiPasquale, using the senior keeper becoming the Spartans’ backbone and leader throughout their 4-1 start.
Not because the first half against Highlands — on Sept. 10 (a 4- loss) — has DiPasquale along with a gifted Paramus defense surrendered a score. It’s been roughly 300 minutes of game time, together with a near 100-minute, 1- shutout against Ridgewood in double overtime.
“She’s honestly amazing, ” teammate Kaitlyn Scrivanich stated having a drenched, but all-smiles DiPasquale standing nearby. “She’s the very best keeper to experience with. She saves many of us.Inches
“I do care more the win, ” stated DiPasquale, bound for TCNJ the coming year. “But it's also really rewarding to finally break an archive.Inches
Last week’s double-overtime hero against Ridgewood (single- win), it had been Scrivanich again who provided Paramus having a late go-ahead goal Saturday with 17:36 left within the other half to interrupt a scoreless tie.
Following a couple of near misses within the first half and at the start of the 2nd, Scrivanich — apparently in on every good Paramus scoring chance — shipped a highlight-reel goal within the 63rd minute.
Following a great defensive play from Alyssa Jacob, as well as better lead avoid the left sideline for any sprints Scrivanich, the fast junior forward — DiPasquale known as her “a gazelle” — in some way handled to sneak one out of within the right publish off an almost-impossible position on the shot that ricocheted from the Indian Hillsides keeper’s hands and in to the internet.
Here’s the entire sequence:
There is still try to be achieved, however. Approximately six minutes following Scrivanich’s goal, Indian Hillsides — who already has wins over both Ramapo and Ridgewood this year — had, possibly, its best scoring chance during the day.
The Braves’ Meg Chesney broke free close to the 18 and faced a 1-on-one game against DiPasquale, who arrived on the scene strongly around the play. Playing the position perfectly, DiPasquale athletically swatted hard shot on goal from harm’s method to preserve Paramus’ 1- lead.
“I just reliable my training… making the save, ” DiPasqaule stated, decently downplaying no-doubt save of the overall game.
Three minutes later, Paramus’ Shannon O’Brien provided the Spartans by having an insurance goal, with Scrivanich credited using the assist after you have an impression on your ball prior to being knocked lower right close to the 18. The ball came free and O’Brien, left alone unmarked with simply the keeper to conquer while within the box, was there to transmit it home with 10:15 left.
“We desired to come forth with lots of fire because we understood Indian Hillsides was a hostile team, ” DiPasquale stated. “This one just came lower to that had more fire.”
A fireplace that eventually was released with this water-cooler shower, although not before another essential Spartans victory.
