BASKING RIDGE, NJ - It is yet another pivotal week for the undefeated Ridge girls soccer team, which hosts Watchung Hills in the NJSIAA Section 2, Group 4 semifinals at 2 p.m. Monday afternoon.

The Red Devils (20-0) faced the Warriors (13-5-3) once during the season and came away with a 2-1 victory, but it was the only game all season in which Ridge trailed at any point. Watchung Hills defeated Union in the quarterfinals and Ridge got past North Hunterdon.

While Ridge breezed in its opening round state tournament game, a 10-0 victory over Plainfield in which 10 different players scored goals in the first half, there was nothing easy about Ridge's triumph over North Hunterdon, a game that was replete with bumps and bruises throughout. North Hunterdon also ended a streak of eight consecutive shutouts for Ridge.

Four Ridge players have scored in double figures this season: Chrissy Weyrauch has 14 goals and eight assists, Julia Lindsey has 13 goals and four assists for Ridge, Erin Convery has 10 goals and three assists, and Shannon Keefe has 12 goals and five assists. Brielle Farrell has seven assists and Anna Hess six assists. With Samantha Carney in goal, Ridge has posted 16 shutouts in its 20 games.

Should Ridge prevail over Watchung Hills, the Red Devils would host the sectional final on Thursday against either Scotch Plains-Fanwood or Bridgewater-Raritan. The last time Ridge played SPF was in last year's sectional final, won by SPF in overtime, 1-0. The last time Ridge played Bridgewater was just nine days ago, in a Somerset County Tournament championship game that was also scoreless until OT, when Chrissy Weyrauch won it with a rebound goal in the final minute.
