2018 Girls Soccer All-Stars

Annie Bagnall

School: Holy Redeemer

Class: Junior

Position: Forward

Three-time all-star already scored 100 career goals with one year left to play. She was practically an unstoppable force in WVC Division 2, scoring 36 goals — 10 against GAR, nine Hanover Area, seven Sem, five WA, four Meyers, one Lehman — in 12 league games.

Carly Cavanaugh

School: Holy Redeemer

Class: Junior

Position: Defender

Two-time all-star helped Redeemer go 12-7, securing the Royals’ third winning season in her three years on varsity. Cavanaugh starred on defense, but also showed nice touch with the ball. She scored in a 3-2 win against Dunmore in districts, and had a team-high 13 assists.

Kasey Danko

School: Holy Redeemer

Class: Junior

Position: Forward

Two-time all-star was one of the best at scoring goals. She helped Redeemer start 5-0 in league play, scoring 13 goals in those five games. Danko finished with 20 goals in the WVC, including six multi-goal efforts, each of which resulted in Redeemer wins.

Allyse Filipowich

School: Coughlin

Class: Junior

Position: Midfield

Arguably the Crusaders’ best overall player, Filipowich opened things up and helped standout forwards Esa Mendola and Krystal Haertter light up the scoreboard. In league play, Filipowich was Coughlin’s third-leading scorer (12 goals) and tied for second in assists (five).

Ali Francis

School: Dallas

Class: Junior

Position: Forward

Three-time all-star is on the short list of all-time great scorers at Dallas. She’s been the Mountaineers’ leading scorer three years running. Francis scored 40 goals in 20 league/playoff games, including seven hat tricks for the D2 Class 3A champions.

Melissa Herrera

School: Crestwood

Class: Senior

Position: Forward

Four-time all-star surpassed 100 goals in one of the best careers ever by a Crestwood Comet. Herrera, who will play at East Stroudsburg, was Crestwood’s leader in goals (33) and assists (10) through league play and playoffs. She led Comets to WVC Division 1 title.

Kennadi Josefowicz

School: Valley West

Class: Junior

Position: Forward

Few players were as indispensable to their team as this two-time all-star was to Valley West. The Spartans scored 54 goals in league play and playoffs, 33 of which were scored by Josefowicz. She scored at least five goals in four games in the regular season.

Sarah Krokos

School: Dallas

Class: Junior

Position: Goalkeeper

Krokos helped the Mountaineers go an entire month without allowing a goal from late September through late October, a span over which Dallas went 8-0-1. She was also spectacular in wins in the D2 Class 3A semifinals and finals, allowing only one goal with 21 saves.

Abby Paczewski

School: Lake-Lehman

Class: Junior

Position: Midfield

Paczewski led the conference with 27 assists. She recorded 17 of them in league play, and then added 10 more in a pair of wins in the D2 Class 2A playoffs. She also scored 18 goals and was one of five Black Knights who scored at least 10 goals.

Emily Smith

School: Lake-Lehman

Class: Junior

Position: Forward

Speedy striker scored a team-high 34 goals in league play and the playoffs, including the month of October when she tallied 27 goals and Lehman went 9-0. Smith was Lehman’s No. 1 scorer and No. 2 in assists, finishing with 19 assists.

Katie Starr

School: Berwick

Class: Sophomore

Position: Midfield

Starr began the season as the center-back and then moved to center-mid, where she scored eight goals with seven assists. A versatile player who’s equally skilled on offense and defense, Starr helped the Bulldogs go 11-8 with one of the WVC’s best defenses. Berwick allowed just 1.26 goals per game.

Emma Stroud

School: Lake-Lehman

Class: Sophomore

Position: Goalkeeper

Lake-Lehman allowed only 1.2 goals per game in the regular season, compared to Wyoming Area’s 1.7 and Redeemer’s 2.2 among the top teams in WVC Division 2. That strong defense helped the Black Knights win the division. Stroud had 10 shutouts in 20 games.

Emma Sweitzer

School: Dallas

Class: Junior

Position: Midfield

Two-time all-star keeps improving, as she posted career-highs in goals (17) and assists (12) through league play and playoffs. Sweitzer keyed the Mountaineers’ D2 Class 3A championship run, scoring five goals in three games while also playing strong defense.

Katelyn Whetstone

School: Crestwood

Class: Senior

Position: Defender

Anchored a defense that allowed only 1.4 goals per game. The Comets’ defense was arguably at its best in the D2 Class 3A quarterfinals against Valley West, when Whetstone & Co. kept the 0-0 tie through regulation and overtime. She scored one of the five PKs to help No. 1 Crestwood win.

Carley Yuhas

School: Wyoming Area

Class: Junior

Position: Defender

Center-back shined all season without recording a goal nor an assist. Yuhas made her mark defensively, keying the Warriors, who allowed just 23 goals in 18 games between league play and districts. Helped WA shut down high-scoring Lehman in 1-0 D2 Class 2A title win.
