MTHS senior could challenge school scoring record

When Tara Davies finished her high school soccer career at Middle Township High School in the fall of 2005 with 104 goals before going on to enjoy a productive career at national Division I power Penn State, there was thought that it might be a long time before another player comes along to challenge that record.

Yet less than a decade later, here we are.

Danielle McCann, about to begin her senior season at Middle, brings 77 career goals into the new season, which for her team is set to begin on Sept. 10 at Vineland.

McCann, Cape May County’s active leading career goal scorer, is a major reason why the Lady Panthers have been one of the top programs in the Cape-Atlantic League in recent seasons. She’s netted 30, 25 and 22 goals, respectively, in each of the last three seasons, helping Middle go a combined 48-12-4 with two CAL National Conference titles, one South Jersey championship and a berth in another sectional title game. Her 30 goals last fall tied the program single-season record, first set by Davies as a junior in 2004.

Morrison said Raffa was traveling to Italy Tuesday evening and was expected to join his team for practice Wednesday afternoon.

Cimberio Varese lost in the semifinal round of Italian Serie A in 2012-13.
