Sabrina Bisante couldn’t have envisioned a better start to her career with the St. Catharines Club Roma Wolves.
The 19-year-old Caledon native has a goal in each of Roma’s first three games as the Wolves are off to a perfect 3-0 start.
“It feels really good,” Bisnate said. “We’re off to a good start but I think we can be even better. I think we could be beating teams by even more than what we are.
Bisante and Sophia Al-Kayed scored Sunday as the Wolves topped ProStars FC 2-0 Sunday. Emma Hendrie earned her second shutout of the season.
“It feels pretty good,” Bisante said. “I scored in the first and second games (too) so hopefully I can keep it up. It’s amazing. My teammates are really good with that and cheering me on so that feels good.”
Roma technical director Davide Massafra loves Bisante’s skill set.
“She’s a 2003 so she’s very young and she’s been an outstanding player,” he said. “Very high expectations for her.”
Bisante, who played last season for Woodbridge in the L1O Women’s Premier Division, was familiar with Massafra as well as women’s lead assistant Lucio Ianiero before joining Roma.
“I knew League 1 and knew some of the girls because I played last year but I didn’t know what calibre the girls were on the team,” Bisante said. “I went to a couple of training sessions and saw they could compete and were some of the same girls that are at Brock so I thought it was a good idea to come here because it would also benefit Brock for next year.”
Bisante, a concurrent education major at Brock, has already taken on a leadership role.
“I’m playing wing but my role is to help out as much as I can and be almost like a mentor for some of them to look up to because there are some even younger players,” she said.
The Wolves are back in action Sunday afternoon at Woodbridge. They have three more road games before their home opener Friday, June 3 at 8:45 p.m. versus Waterloo.
So far, Massafra is more than satisfied with how things are progressing.
“We try our best. Players come here from different pathways but working with the young athletes it’s very easy because they absorb everything we teach them and they’re willing to learn and that makes our job very easy,” he said.
