In addition to player of the year Allie Wilson, the All-Delco team is composed of:
Kelly Rogers, Haverford: The senior goalkeeper helped the Fords win 11 of their first 12 games and led them to the District One tournament. Rogers allowed just three goals in the first month of the season. As the Fords rattled off an 11-game win streak from Aug. 31 to Oct. 1, Rogers was nearly perfect, allowing just one goal, and that came in one of her best outings of the season, a 12-save performance in a 2-1 win over West Chester Henderson. For the season, Rogers kept 11 clean sheets. She even managed to score a goal, converting the game-winner from the penalty spot in a 2-1 win over Springfield Oct. 15.
Deirdre Bradley, Marple Newtown: The senior midfielder's role changed for the Tigers when teammate Holly Niccolardi was lost to a knee injury the first game of the season. Bradley stepped into Niccolardi's role of midfield general, helping the Tigers gain steam down the stretch with a seven-game winning streak that resulted in its second straight appearance in the District One Class AAA playoffs. Bradley played a key role in the offense, scoring three times — all of those goals coming in Marple wins — and adding nine assists while also helping control play with her aerial ability and touch on the ball.
Laura Slavich, Haverford: Slavich's ability to man the engine room of the midfield was a major reason for the success of the Fords. Often a provider, she turned up the offense as the season wound down and injuries hit the Fords' forward line. She scored in each of her final two games, including the only goal in the Fords' District One Class AAA ouster against West Chester East, to take her total on the season to three goals. She is considering offers to play soccer collegiately.
Haley Warden, Garnet Valley: Warden provided the offensive firepower for a solid Jaguars team looking for an attacking spark. Out of the midfield, she scored a team-high eight goals, including four game-winners. She had the overtime game-winner against West Chester East, a turning point in the season for the Jaguars and the start of a four-game winning streak that led them back to the District One playoffs. Warden, also a lacrosse All-Delco, will play college lacrosse at James Madison.
Sophie Murphy, Strath Haven: The consummate shield for the back four, Murphy was once again the best holding midfielder in Delco. The two-time All-Delco played a big role in the stinginess of a Panthers team that allowed only 11 goals all season. She also provided a bit of offense, scoring twice and providing four assists, none bigger than a feed to fellow All-Delco Kristen Miller for the game-winning goal in the Panthers' overtime triumph over Pennsbury in the District One playbacks. Murphy excelled in the postseason despite breaking her arm at the end of the regular season. She'll continue her soccer career at John Hopkins.
Kristen Miller, Strath Haven: The senior forward/midfielder and two-time All-Delco was the main offensive threat for the Panthers this season. She led the team in scoring with eight goals, including both tallies in the pivotal Central League contest with Haverford that clinched the Panthers at least a share of their third straight Central League title. Miller also had a hand in all three of the Panthers' postseason goals, scoring the overtime winner in the playback first round over Pennsbury, setting up Ami Iannello's double-overtime winner over Unionville in the second round and assisting on Jamie Kenney's goal against Spring-Ford. This year's Central League MVP will continue her soccer career at the University of Pennsylvania.
Meredith Manley, Episcopal Academy: For a team impacted by injuries this season, the senior two-time All-Delco midfielder's presence loomed even larger than usual. She scored 12 goals and added 13 assists from her central midfield spot, becoming one of the main threats for EA in addition to providing stellar two-way play in the center of the pitch. For her efforts, she was named the Inter-Ac player of the year. Manley will play collegiately at Amherst.
Hannah Keating, Agnes Irwin: Keating was one of the leading lights for a stellar sophomore class that led the Owls to contend for the Inter-Ac title and advance to the final of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools tournament. In addition to 17 goals, good for second on the team, Keating led the way with 21 assists, many to classmate All-Delco Kristin Burnetta, including a 4-1 win over Notre Dame Oct. 22 in which Keating set up all four of Burnetta's goals. Keating also provided strong two-way play from her central midfield spot.
Kristin Burnetta, Agnes Irwin: The other half of the Owls sensational sophomore duo, Burnetta was the leading scorer in Delaware County this season with 31 goals. She scored in 17 of the Owls 22 games, including 13 of their first 15, and had 10 multi-goal games, including four hat tricks. She scored five times this season against archrival Episcopal Academy, including two game-winning goals, as the Owls went 3-0 against the Churchwomen. Burnetta also found time to hand out 11 assists.
Julia Kyne, Delco Christian: The junior forward wasn't just one of the most prolific scorers in the county, finding the back of the net 27 times. She got better as the season went on, scoring in each of the Knights' last five games. She provided overtime game-winners against New Hope-Solebury and Cardinal O'Hara and recorded a hat trick in the regular-season finale over Ridley. Kyne scored twice in the District One Class A semifinal win over New Hope-Solebury, and also scored in the final, which the Knights lost to Christopher Dock in overtime. Kyne also provided 10 assists.
Phoebe McClernon, Notre Dame: The sophomore's tally of 30 goals this season isn't bad, considering she plays club soccer as a defender and had limited experience as a forward. The insertion of McClernon at forward this season came by necessity for Notre Dame early in the season; her prolific scoring means she never left. She scored in 18 of Notre Dame's 23 games, notching 10 multi-goal games and three hat tricks, including a four-goal outburst against Springside Chestnut Hill in late October. As a team, Notre Dame scored 92 goals this season en route to the semifinals of the PAISAA tournament. McClernon also chipped in 12 assists.
