New York, N.Y. - The Skyline Conference's 11 head women's soccer coaches have cast their votes on the 2019 edition of the all-conference team.
Junior midfielder Molly Dowd (Bay Shore, N.Y.), freshman defender Taylor Berry (Glen Head, N.Y.) and senior goalkeeper Daniella Ford (Elmont, N.Y.) were each named to the First Team, while sophomore forward Julissa Martinez (Brentwood, N.Y.), senior midfielder Edasia Martinez (Brentwood, N.Y.) and junior midfielder Meagan Murdocco (North Babylon, N.Y.) received Second Team honors. Freshman Gabrielle Cardillo (Levittown, N.Y.) earned a spot on the Skyline Conference All-Sportsmanship team.
Dowd controlled the midfield for the Rams which led the conference in goals against (14) and ranked third for goals scored (55). She also recorded a pair of assists on the year.
Berry anchored an FSC defense which recorded 14 shutouts this season. In 10 Skyline games, the Rams allowed only two goals. Berry scored one goal from her defensive position.
Ford led the Skyline in goals allowed (11), goals against average (.569), save percentage (.863) and shutouts (10). Earlier this season on September 4th, she stopped a career-high 13 shots against Trinity (CT). Ford was tabbed Skyline Conference Defensive Player of the Week twice.
J. Martinez led the team in game-winning goals (4), ranked second in goals scored (9), third for points (21) and sixth in assists (3). In the Skyline, she was second in game-winning scores.
E. Martinez led Farmingdale State in both points (26) and assists (10), was second in game-winners (2) and third in goals scored (8). She registered a pair of hat tricks this season against Maritime (Oct. 28) and in the Skyline Finals versus Manhattanville (Nov. 9). E. Martinez ranked third in the conference in assists and was named Offensive Player of Week once.
Murdocco tallied four goals from her midfield position. She was a major factor in the Rams outscoring their last five opponents (including the playoffs), 31-1.
