STAMFORD — One of the intangibles of Chloe Ortolano’s soccer career is that she always seems to be in the right place at the right time.
That’s exactly where she was Tuesday when Brien McMahon girls soccer teammate Peyton McNamara delivered a corner kick to the far post during their FCIAC contest against Trinity Catholic at Gaglio Field.
Off that corner, Ortolano then did what nobody in the history of Brien McMahon soccer has ever done better.
She scored her school-record 38th career goal to lead the Senators to a 3-0 win, in a game that was called at halftime due to incoming thunderstorms.
“It’s a big deal for me,” Ortolano said. “I’ve always been working since I was younger, playing this sport and when I found out I was close to the record it made me work even harder and it pushed me. It’s a great accomplishment.”
