“ It felt amazing! ” said Tatiana Arias after not only winning the most important game to the Senators but for also being announced MVP. Arias, attending Brien Mcmahon High School, pulled off an amazing performance for the Senators on Friday night on Testa Field as they faced their hometown rival, Norwalk High School.
Arias did attend Brien Mcmahon High school when she was a freshmen , then transferred to Norwalk High School her sophomore year. Entering her Junior year she did come back to Brien Mcmahon but was not able to play the first 8 games for the senators.
“ I was super nervous before the game because I knew I couldn't mess up being goalie, especially against Norwalk High. It was a must win for me because that was my old school.” Nothing got passed Arias on the field, not even the “Bear Pack.” “Mentally I had to get ready for the game. I knew I couldn't let the bear pack effect me or anyone in the stands.” Arias also had a lot of help from her teammates. “They were always supporting me and telling me I was doing a good job. The compliments helped get my confidence up.” The senators won the game with a 3-0 score but the game didn't end there for Arias as she was announced MVP of the Chelsea Cohen award. “I was surprised, I didn't expect to be named MVP but I was happy.” And so were her coaches , “ They told me I did a great job because I did everything they were telling me to do, they were proud.”
Arias celebrated the victory with her teammates and school as they all went onto the field chanting in full pride. “ It's great to be home, I missed it a lot!”
