Mary Star High Girls Soccer Scores Early, Holds On For Victory

After a difficult 2012-2013 season where injuries to key players made things rough, it seems like Mary Star High girls soccer is on its way back to the form that led them to back-to-back Camino Real League championships.

Bolting to a quick 4-0 lead in the first half, the host Stars had to withstand a fiery second effort by Animo Leadership of Inglewood before holding on for a 5-3 nonleague victory in their 2013-2014 home opener. UC Santa Barbara-bound forward Jordyn Alves would score her third goal in two games and add two assists (giving her 3 for the season), while junior midfielder Dori Lindeman would add a pair of goals for Mary Star (2-0 overall).

Goals by the likes of Alves, Lindeman, Anna Stefanou and Alyssa DiMassa in the first 25 minutes would pace Mary Star to a seemingly insurmountable advantage against an Amino Leadership team that had already suffered three shutout losses coming in, but they would break on the board with goals in the 35th and 49th minute.

Now with a close 4-2 lead, Mary Star would power their way to a corner kick situation, where Alves delivered a perfect set-up towards the left corner of the net, where Lindeman used her head to blast the ball into the net for a 5-2 Mary Star edge in the 64th minute. 

Animo Leadership (0-4) would score one more time in the 74th minute, but it wasn't enough. Three of Mary Star's five goals were scored off of Alves' corner kicks.

Mary Star will host in-city neighbor Port Of Los Angeles on Wednesday in an intersectional game.
