BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – In their last out of conference game of the year, the Governor Livingston Lady Highlanders defeated Verona 2-0 under the lights at Snyder Field in Berkeley Heights in their final home regular season game of the year.  The Governor Livingston Soccer Program also honored their five seniors.

To defeat Verona, Governor Livingston recognized and shut down Verona’s two leading scorers, Claire Fitzpatrick and Olivia Marino, who have each scored nine goals this season.  Five minutes into the game, freshman Lindsay DiStaso capitalized off a cross from junior Isabella Bjorkeson.  Bjorkeson finished again off of junior captain Lauren Jankowski’s corner kick.

The program came together to honor their five seniors, Jennifer French, Casey Krause, Michelle Reedy, Alyssa Cranston, and Samantha Davey. Coach Michael Roof and the underclassmen on the team thanked the seniors for all they have done for the program during the past four years at Governor Livingston, and wished them the best of luck in future.  Lauren Jankowski described the emotions of the night, stating, “A huge part of the team this year has been the camaraderie, both on and off the field. It’s definitely going to be hard to say goodbye to our seniors.  I have played with some of them for the past three years, and we are really going to miss them next season.”

The seniors shared similar emotions.   “My past three years on varsity have been so much fun," Alyssa Cranston said. "On and off the field, we work hard together and it pays off. I’m going to miss it a lot.”

Now 12-5, Governor Livingston plays Kent Place on Tuesday, which will be their fourth game in six days. On Thursday, they play their last regular season game against Summit, who they have already played twice this year. Having both won and lost to Summit this year, Governor Livingston is aiming for a convincing win.
