High School Extra: Deep bench helps Orchard Park girls soccer

With two goals in each half, Orchard Park played an even game en route to a 4-0 win over West Seneca West in ECIC I girls soccer.

Faith Hanlon and Hannah Woodrich each scored twice as the Quakers improved to 7-1-2 overall with Rebecca Roman notching the shutout.

“I think we’re at the time of year when all teams are battling injury and illness, and we’re part of that,” OP coach Mike Graffeo said. “In the last couple of games we’ve had more girls get playing time and they’ve done good things with it. We seem to have developed a deep bench and right now that’s helpful to us. We don’t have to rely on just starters – other girls have gotten involved and given us lots of positive contributions.”
