Izzy Nazario scored the eventual game-winning goal in Hen Hud’s 3-2 win against visiting Carmel Monday.
The real difference maker for the Sailors didn’t even play in the second half, though, according to Hen Hud coach Paul LaValle.
Senior captain and defender Jackie Tosi, who missed that half after feeling dizzy, according to LaValle, provided the emotional spark for the Sailors to overcome a 1-0 halftime deficit.
“She knows what it takes,” LaValle said of Tosi, who has been on the varsity since her sophomore year. “She’s such a leader.”
Hen Hud scored three straight goals to open the half. Nazario had two, including the decisive goal in the 72nd minute, and Casey Brown added another. The Rams cut the lead to one in the 78th minute.
LaValle was proud his team overcame the early deficit, something the Sailors have struggled to do in the past.
“This is the culture (Tosi) has helped developed,” LaValle said.
