BASKING RIDGE, NJ - The Ridge girls soccer team won one rematch on Monday to set up an even more momentous rematch later this week.

Ridge defeated Watchung Hills, 4-0, in the semifinal round of the NJSIAA Section 2, Group 4 tournament, setting up a fourth meeting of the season with Bridgewater-Raritan, which upset second-seeded Scotch Plains-Fanwood, 2-1, on a last-minute goal in yesterday's other sectional semi.

Undefeated Ridge, winners of 21 in a row this season, bolted out to a 3-0 lead Monday in the first half. Shannon Keefe scored two goals, Julia Lindsey had a goal and an assist and Jane Nishimura scored one for the Red Devils, who also got an assist from Chrissy Weyrauch. Ridge outshot Watchung Hills, 13-2.

Watchung Hills had fallen to Ridge, 2-1, in a regular-season game.

Now Ridge will get ready for another battle with Bridgewater-Raritan. Although Ridge has won all three meetings against the Panthers, the most recent one in the Somerset County Tournament championship game was an overtime epic that was scoreless for 99 minutes before Chrissy Weyrauch stuck her own rebound back in the net for the county title.
