MASON FARR, Senior – Soccer

Farr

• All-State
* Class A South regional all-star
• SMAA all-star, first-team

Farr is the latest in a legacy of unstoppable Falmouth goal scorers, and he helped the Navigators to yet another successful campaign.

Farr played three years of varsity soccer for Falmouth. He was part of the Navigators’ first-ever Class A state championship as a sophomore, and after his junior campaign was limited by COVID, Farr’s senior campaign was his best, as he was a matchup nightmare, winning the ball with abandon and burying it when he got the opportunity. Farr scored 18 goals and added four assists for a squad which won 11 games before being ousted from the playoffs by eventual Class A state champion Marshwood.

Highlights included the first four goals of the season in a 6-0 win at Sanford in the opener, two more goals in a victory over Massabesic, the only goal in a win over Kennebunk, two goals in a victory over Bonny Eagle, a hat trick in a win over Cheverus, three goals and a pair of assists in a victory over Biddeford, two goals in a win over Thornton Academy, and the only goal in a thrilling victory at Scarborough.

While Falmouth’s quest for another Gold Ball fell short, the Navigators scored a lot of goals and created no shortage of excitement and much of that was due to Farr’s heroics.

Coach Dave Halligan’s comment: “Mason was a player that other teams had to account for on the field. He was a threat to score from any position that he was asked to play. His speed and size, along with his skill with the ball, made him one of the top players in the state. He’s a game-changer. He seemed to play his best in the biggest games against the toughest opponents.”

JORDAN WOLF, Senior – Soccer

Wolf

• All-State
* Class A South regional all-star
• SMAA all-star, first-team
• SMAA Defensive Player of the Year
• Captain

Wolf wasn’t just the state’s finest goalkeeper this season – she’ll be remembered as one of the best ever. And when she got an opportunity to contribute on offense, she proved to be a game-changer there as well as she paced Falmouth to its best season in 14 years.

Wolf broke on to the scene as a freshman and was named an honorable mention all-star. As a sophomore, she earned the same designation. After having her junior season shortened by COVID, Wolf took on the responsibility of bringing along a young defense this fall and as the last line of defense, ensured Falmouth would be in every game and win most of them.

Wolf conceded only nine goals in 17 games. She made four saves in a season-opening victory over Sanford, stopped seven shots in a scoreless tie versus Gorham, made five saves in a win over Kennebunk, then made two saves in a shutout win over Bonny Eagle, giving her Falmouth’s career record for shutouts with 25. There would be more to come.

Wolf surrendered her first goal of the season, but stopped 10 shots, including making a dazzling diving save on a penalty kick, to preserve a 2-1 victory at Cheverus, saved 12 shots in a loss to eventual state champion Windham, made seven saves in a win over Thornton Academy, stopped seven shots in a huge win over Scarborough, made four saves in a shutout win over South Portland and saved a pair of shots in a regular season-ending victory over Portland.

Wolf remained stellar in the playoffs, stopping a pair of shots in a preliminary round win over Sanford, helping Falmouth edge Marshwood in the quarterfinals, then shutting out Gorham for 110 minutes in the semifinals before the Rams won on penalty kicks.

Emphasizing just how valuable and multi-faceted she was, Wolf also scored twice and had three assists. She converted a penalty kick against Sanford and had an assist in the win over Scarborough.

Wolf isn’t done turning heads on the pitch. Regardless of what comes next, her legend will live on in Falmouth.

Coach Andrew Pelletier’s comment: “Jordan was a leader on and off the field for us this season, and for the past four years, she has proven to be instrumental to the program’s success. She led by example and demanded the best from herself and her teammates. We don’t mind people shooting from 30 yards out when we have Jordan. Her presence in goal and on free kicks gave our group lifts when we weren’t playing our best. She will go down as one of the top goalkeepers the state has seen in some time.”
