The cold weather did not deter this group of girls to become victorious in our 1st Round of NJSIAA North Jersey Section 2 Group 3 State Tournament game. The pre-game team talk was about start fast and surprise them with how well we can play with and without the ball.
The girls took those words literally and scored inside the first two minutes of the game. Joelle Ma passes the ball down the line to Ashley Thomas. She rounded the goalkeeper and scored from a very tight angle. The momentum swung both ways and each team had chances to put more goals on the scoreboard. In the 23rd minute, Natasha Kim extended our lead with a great finish after beating two defenders and shooting the ball into the top right corner. It was a very tight contest in the 2nd half and we were able to defend very well to keep the score at 2-0 and move onto the next round.
