2013 Women's Soccer Season Recap

At the end of the 2013 season, Rosemont’s women’s soccer program propelled itself into the conference championship game. That’s quite a statement for a team in only its third year of existence. The Ravens have shown consistent improvement since they first took the field in 2011. In 2011 the team had a 3-11-1 (2-8-1 CSAC) record, followed by a 10-7 (7-4 CSAC) campaign in 2012 that earned them their first postseason appearance in a CSAC Quarterfinal match. This year the team took another large step forward, ending their season with a record of 12-8 and winning the CSAC regular-season championship with a 9-2 record, securing them the #1 seed in the CSAC playoffs.

In the 2013 CSAC Championship tournament the Ravens defeated #4-seeded Centenary in the Semifinal match and hosted an exciting Championship match against #2-seeded Cabrini. Rosemont ultimately lost the final game of the season by a score of 4-3 and were the conference runner-up team for 2013.

The team’s offense was led by three underclassmen this season. Last year’s CSAC Rookie-of-the-Year, sophomore Lauren Whelan continued to find the goal when it counted for her team. Whelan booted 11 goals, five of which were game-winning goals. Whelan set a career-high with seven assists leading to 29 points for the Ravens, second-best for the squad. She led the Ravens in shots (76) and shots on goal (35). Whelan was 2nd in the CSAC in assists, 3rd in shots, points and game-winning goals, and 4th in goals.

Freshman Stephanie Tamburro burst onto the scene in a big way this year for the Ravens. Tamburro led the team with 15 goals (five game-winning goals) and four assists to lead the team in points with 34. Tamburro was 3rd on the Ravens with 53 shots, but 32 of those shots were on goal for a shot-on-goal percentage of .604. Overall she had a shot percentage of .283 to lead the team. Tamburro was 2nd in the CSAC in goals and points and ranked 4th in the conference in game-winning goals.

Freshman Taylor Mohr also turned some heads this year, scoring nine goals with four assists for 22 points. She placed 2nd on the team with total shots (64) and a high shot-on-goal percentage of .531, second best on the team.

Junior Kerry Hars, who had scored two goals in each of her first two seasons scored a career-high five goals and had 12 points for the season.

Sophomore Vicky Kaczynski matched her freshman season in goals scored, bagging another four in 2013. With her two assists she earned 10 points again this year.

The Ravens were also strong on the defensive side of the ball this season, allowing only 26 goals against the 54 goals scored by the offense. Both numbers were records for the young program.

Standout performances on defense and in transition were turned in by junior Courtney Whelan and rookies Allison Myers and Cassidy Steiner.

Other Ravens who played significant roles in the teams’ success this season were Allie Myers, Dani Lelie, Haley Philpott, Jenn South, Gina Ragona, Alyssa Riegel, Alana Howell and Ali Osorio.

The Ravens experienced injuries to their goalkeepers this season. Sophomore Andrea Dossantos was injured in her 5th game, opening up an opportunity for rookie keeper Jenna Kaiser. Kaiser was tremendous in goal for the Ravens, ending the season with a 9-5 record, including six shutouts. Both in wins and shutouts, those numbers are the new records for Rosemont’s women’s soccer program. Kaiser played over 1,241 minutes in goal, ceding a goals-against average of only 1.09. Kaiser ended the season ranked 2nd in the CSAC in goals-against average and shutouts.

When Kaiser was injured late in the season, sophomore Alyssa Riegel stepped forward as Rosemont’s third keeper. Put into a difficult situation against two very tough opponents, Riegel gave up only three goals in 170 minutes in goal, with a goals-against average of only 1.05.

After their successful season the Ravens earned a significant number of All-CSAC recognition.

  • * CSAC Rookie of the Year: Stephanie Tamburro
  • * CSAC Coach of the Year: Aaron Tritch
  • * All-CSAC First Team: Stephanie Tamburro, Courtney Whelan, Lauren Whelan
  • * All-CSAC Honorable Mention Team: Kerry Hars, Taylor Mohr, Cassidy Steiner
  • * CSAC All-Sportsmanship Team: Jenna Kaiser

As a team the Ravens ranked 2nd in the CSAC in shots, shots on goal, goals, assists and points.

The team will miss their one graduating senior, Diana Hamlin who was a spirited player for the program since its inception in 2011, but look forward to next season and another run at the CSAC Championship.
