Irvington opened the season with a 2-1 win over visiting Putnam Valley on Oct. 14 before playing to a draw with Briarcliff and then losing at North Salem.

In the win over Putnam Valley, Gabby D’Alessio and Kate Hanna had the goals for the Bulldogs, while Claire Brady and Sammy Schoenfarber had an assist apiece.

In goal, Kayla Mizrachi and Sam Quinio split the game. Mizrachi did not record a save, while Quinio was credited with three, including stopping a penalty stroke.

“Due to Covid, everything seems to be a first — first game of the season was our Senior Day — all the players were wearing Bulldog masks thanks to our booster club — and the kids were playing in a high school game for the first time in seven months,” Irvington head coach Beth Staropoli said. “Needless to say, it was a great day.”

The Bulldogs battled visiting Briarcliff to a scoreless draw on Oct. 17. Mizrachi made two saves for Irvington.

“The team played very well. We just couldn’t put the ball in the cage,” Staropoli said. “Overall, I was pleased, as they are playing hard and continuing to grow.”

The Bulldogs closed out the week with a 2-0 loss at North Salem on Oct. 19. Skylar Bender opened the scoring for the Tigers, who received an insurance tally from Krista DeModna. Mizrachi made a dozen saves in goal for Irvington.

Team records through Oct. 19: Hastings 0-0-0; Irvington 1-1-1
