Hillies rallying around two injured teammates

(Continued)

The two siblings played a great deal of soccer together growing up.

“It was corresponding thing,” Hannah said. “He’d play goalie and I’d shoot on him — that kind of deal. And I just feel like I need to keep the Pesci tradition going, I guess (said laughing). I want to make it into college for soccer as well.”

Bryant added about Pesci: “She’s one of our few year-round players. So she’s been playing club soccer, a pretty high level, really all along. So I think it was only a matter of time before that progression really started to translate into a ton of goals. And she ran track last year, which I think helped her speed. She’s pretty much done everything she needed to do to become a more dangerous player.”

Windham is 10-0.

“My forwards sort of get frustrated at times because I have three forwards who I rotate because we have a two-forward formation and I have three who are really talented,” Bryant said. “So only two of them start in any given game. That gets a little frustrating at times but they’ve all been very supportive of each other. And if you look at the statistics and assists Hannah’s gotten on her goals, a ton of them come from the other forwards. So any combination I’ve put out there has worked really well, which is really nice to see.”

Girls Player of the Week

Hannah Pesci scored a remarkable four goals in Windham’s 8-0 victory over Pelham on Saturday.

Pesci has 18 goals on the season, seven more than she had all of last year. She has helped the Jaguars to a 10-0 start.

“I think she’s even a little surprised at how well she’s done so far,” Windham coach Matt Bryant said.
