WESTFIELD – Opponents of the St. Mary’s High School girls soccer team were often left seeing stars by game’s end this past season, and for good reason.
St. Mary’s junior captain Allie Goodreau’s dizzying breakneck style of play often left the opposition dumbstruck. For that, she was recently voted an All-State selection by the state Soccer Association.
Goodreau is a two-time first team and a one-time second team all-Western Mass striker, who returned from a midseason ACL tear in 2019 to compile 11 goals and eight assists in just seven games this season.
Goodreau accounted for more than half of her team’s total 29 goals, paving the way for a perfect 7-0 record in a COVID-shortened season.
“I realize the season was shortened but we actually played a more difficult schedule,” St. Mary’s girls soccer head coach Patrick Olearcek said, referring to games against teams like Easthampton and Gateway. “Led offensively by Ali, we were able to not only compete but excel.”
Four years ago, St. Mary’s had just one win. In the two seasons that followed, the Saints qualified for the tournament with consecutive 14-win campaigns.
After averaging 30-plus points two years in a row, Goodreau finished with 19 points this past season. She was on a blistering pace in 2019, netting 26 goals and 10 assists in only 10 games last year.
“Allie has been tremendous, the cornerstone (of our team),” coach Olearcek said. “The future is bright because of (her).”
