BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Gov. Livingston boys’ soccer team fell to Linden Thursday afternoon in a hard-fought offensive battle, 4-3. 

The Highlanders struck first when sophomore Mason Boenning netted a goal in the 18th minute to give Governor Livingston what would be their only lead of the game. Boenning was the entirety of the Highlander offense, scoring all three of Governor Livingston’s goals.

Despite Boenning’s stellar offensive performance, the Tigers were able to notch one more goal than Governor Livingston to come away with the win. Frederick Velez, Brian Orellana, Alex Tarnawski and Brandon Carvalhoso each scored one goal in Linden’s victory.

The Highlanders fought to the finish, continuing to apply offensive pressure until the final seconds of the match. They have continuously come up short throughout the season. Head coach Bruno Somma reflected on the season long struggle.

“We had a lot of enthusiasm coming into the season, considering we advanced to the state semifinals last year,” Somma said, “Unfortunately that did not carry over.”

With this defeat the Highlanders' season comes to a close, finishing with a disappointing record of 2-16-1.
