BIG RAPIDS — Allie Angell’s sophomore girls soccer season at Crossroads was an impressive one.

She was able to help Crossroads in the scoring area this season. She led the team with 15 goals and three assists. She and Leah Davis led the team in scoring.

“Allie and Leah are a devastating duo,” Crossroads coach Joshua Yurick said. “Higher scoring games offered them hat tricks each and the chance to provide service to teammates so that they could score.”

Angell was a center-mid.

“I use my left foot more than my right,” Angell said. “The left side is normally weaker for other defenders. It’s easier for me to get the left foot shot off.”

The Cougars were able to get some wins this season, with Angell and her teammates focusing on getting better.

Yurick was impressed with Angell’s contributions.

“She was hard-working and dedicated, and has a future leadership role,” Yurick said.

“She’s mostly mid field but a threat from anywhere.”
