Claim to fame: Youngstown’s Felder scored her 100th career goal when the GCC beat Steel Valley, 11-0, for their third straight win.

How did it feel to score your 100th goal, and how did the goal develop?

I felt great. I received the ball in half the field and started dribbling forward and tried to pass it to Riley Kerr to make a 1-2 pass, but it was blocked by a defender and bounced back to me and drove towards goal and scored. . I appreciate all the efforts my teammates are putting into helping me get there.

How much momentum do the GCC countries have in the playoffs?

We take one game at a time and learn from each one.

I like to incorporate more recovery into practices.

I went to the WPIAL and PIAA Finals last year. How challenging will it be to return?
