PLAYER OF THE YEAR Amirah Ali, Eastern, forward, jr. As gaudy as her final numbers were, they don't come close to telling the whole story. Thirty-six goals in any division is a rare accomplishment. But scoring 36 goals in the Olympic Conference American Division? "I can't fathom it," Eastern coach Jamie McGroarty said. Ali turned in one of the most memorable seasons in South Jersey history, dominating one of the top divisions in the state. In nearly every game this season, she was swarmed by future college defenders - some high-level Division-1 commits - but she scored in all but four games.

There are some South Jersey soccer diehards who still found the moment - however triumphant it was - just a little unsettling when it hit the ears. Earlier this week, Madison Tiernan, a former Eastern great, headed in the winner in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament for Rutgers. The goal was set up by a sharp, bending corner kick from Kenie Wright. Yes, that Kenie Wright, the former Inquirer first-team All-South Jersey midfielder from Lenape. The thought of Eastern and Lenape girls' soccer joining forces is akin to Spiderman fighting crime with the Green Goblin.

UNION, N.J. - All week, Ryan Logar kept the pressure off his left foot. He was saving it for Sunday, and for the most remarkable goal of his soccer career. All week, Logar made his way through the halls of Washington Township High School on crutches. All week, Logar kept his badly sprained left ankle elevated and wrapped in ice, and told himself that he would be ready for the Group 4 state championship game. "I didn't think he was going to play," Washington Township coach Shane Snyder said, moments before his players dumped a cooler of ice water on him in celebration of the Minutemen's 1-0 victory over West Orange.

THE FRENCH national soccer team sent a bold message to ISIS on Monday. Screw you! On Friday, a match between Germany and France was interrupted at the Stade de France when terrorists detonated explosive vests just outside the stadium as part of the synchronized attacks on Paris. The next day, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks, in which 129 were killed and 350 were wounded. There was talk of canceling future games, but the French team has decided to soldier on. On Tuesday afternoon, it will take on England at London's Wembley Stadium (3 p.m. Fox Sports 1)
