By Dylan Butler

After Carolyn Durniak scored the tying goal with 12 minutes left, Kristen Hausdorf netted the game-winner with less than two minutes left in the second half for the Cardozo girls’ soccer team, in a wild 5-4 win over rival Townsend Harris at Flushing Meadow Corona Park Friday.

“She was absolutely huge,” Cardozo coach Rich Parascos said of Hausdorf, who scored two goals for the Judges. “She showed the heart of a lion.”

Vivian James had a goal and an assist and Catherine Yim also scored for Cardozo (5-0 Queens A), which led 2-1 at halftime. Maria Paschalidis and Stacey Christoforids scored two goals apiece for Townsend Harris (4-1 Queens A).

“We took terrible penalties in our own box,” Parascos added. “We played undisciplined soccer.”
