BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – The Governor Livingston field hockey team defeated Koinonia Academy 3-0 on Senior Night Thursday evening at Snyder Field.

After an uneventful first half, the Highlanders (9-7-1) got on the board less than two minutes into the second half when Marisa Iossa scored. The goal came after a brief battle with the Koinonia goalie right in front of the goal; Iossa was able to finally sneak the ball in.

About halfway through the half, GL had another opportunity to score after a corner when the entire team crashed the net, creating a huge cluster of players from both teams in front of the goal. The Highlanders were unable to score on the play and Koinonia got the ball away, but GL quickly recovered the ball and sent it back towards the goal.

Another mass ensued in front of the goal, but this time the Highlanders were able to capitalize, with Iossa scoring again, this time from the corner.

Five minutes later, Iossa scored her third goal on a breakaway started by Angie Mauriello. Mauriello got the ball at midfield and passed it to Iossa, who then passed it to Audrey Cardone. With Iossa streaking down the field, Cardone sent the ball back to her and Iossa made the goal, completing the hat trick.

The three goals were the most goals the Highlanders scored in a game since winning 3-0 vs. Union at the end of September.

The Governor Livingston field hockey 2017-2018 seniors are: Bridget Colendenski, Marisa Iossa, Kyra Ippolito, Tiffany Luo, Emily Matrone, Angie Mauriello, Aislinn O’Keefe, Katie Quinn, Amanda Azalone, Sara Middlebrook and Nicolette Stallone.

The field hockey team’s next game is Saturday, October 21 vs. Newark Academy at home. Start time is set for 11 a.m.
