FAIRMONT — Fairmont Senior’s Ivey Nucilli battled through an ankle injury last week and drove the FSHS girls’ soccer team to the state finals against Bridgeport.

Nucilli originally wasn’t expected to play in the state semifinals game against PikeView.

With under 3:52 left, she found an open space and knocked in a goal for a 2-1 lead to set the final.

Against Bridgeport, Nucilli tallied another goal that tied the game at 1-1 heading into halftime.

The Polar Bears would eventually fall to Bridgeport, 3-2, but finished the season with a record of 15-9-1.

For her efforts, Nucilli is the latest Times West Virginian Multi-Media Good Sports Player of the Week.
