2006 Women's Soccer Season Recap
Nov 13, 2006

The 2006 Farmingdale State women's soccer team finished the year 10-8-2. After falling to Stevens Institute of Technology in the Skyline Semifinals, the Rams received their first-ever bid to the ECAC Metro Tournament as the #2 seed. They faced #3 seed Rutgers-Camden in the semifinal game and posted a 2-1 win to advance to the ECAC Finals. Top-seeded Manhattanville snagged the Championship from Farmingdale with a 2-0 victory, but the team posted the most wins since joining the NCAA six years ago and only allowed 28 goals all season with seven shutout wins.

The Rams received three All-Conference selections this season. Freshman Christina Cascio was named the Skyline Rookie of the Year and First Team All-Skyline after finishing the regular season with a conference leading 16 goals and two assists. Freshman Amanda Biondi was also named First Team All-Skyline. Biondi was capable of anything from her midfield position, either making the plays or assisting them. She finished with three goals and five assists to finish fourth in team scoring. Freshman Kimberly Sontag was named Second Team All-Skyline, holding the fort in goal all season with 103 saves, .811 save percentage and a 1.28 goals against average. Sontag helped the team to a 7-1 month of October, with all wins coming by shutout.

Freshman Renee Schondebare had a great rookie season scoring nine goals, while freshmen Tricia Pickford added some toughness and speed to the midfield line tallying three goals and a team-leading six assists. The team as a whole scored 46 goals this season, upping their total from last year by 13 goals.

The team will only lose one senior in midfielder Jessica Graziano, which should make for another exciting women's soccer season for Head Coach Chris Roche and the Rams in 2007.
