Girls Soccer: Plum scoring duo a force

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

With the duo of sophomore Ashley Amato and senior Aaliyah Odom, Plum boats one of the top scoring duos in the area. Together Amato and Odom have led the Mustangs to a 7-1 start including a 3-1 mark in Class AAA Section 3. Amato scored her tenth and 11th goal of the season in a 4-0 win over Woodland Hills. While Amato leads the team this season it was Odom who led Plum last year with 16 goals.

"Aaliyah has a lot of speed up top," Plum coach Michael Proviano said. "Ashley plays in the hole right behind her. Ashley is more of a playmaker. She can shoot and score from anywhere inside the 20. Aaliyah is a different player, both have great speed but Aaliyah is a flat-out finisher."
