(Continued)

CITY OF TONAWANDA —

Compeau is starting to look for her offense and Schork said it’s coming at an important time for her and the team. The junior forward looks to get others involved and her teammates appreciate it.

But now Compeau has to start to embrace her talent and start looking to score, according to Schork. Judging by the scoring she’s commenced in recent weeks, Schork’s message has been received.

“I play intense and I play to win,” Compeau said. “When I’m out there I don’t think about anything else, just soccer and winning. I tend to pass the ball a lot but I know I have to work on finishing and scoring more goals.”

Schork said Compeau is a student of the game and that she loves to learn. It’s part of the reason she became so good so fast, and why her future is so bright.

“She’s going to come across a lot of opportunities. It’s time for her to shine,” Schork said. “She has to understand that if she wants to play Division I or in college. She has to be sort of selfish and be a little cocky, because she’s such a nice kid and a humble kid, which I love. But now, she has to make her own destiny.
