CRANFORD, NJ – Cranford boys soccer defeated New Providence 2-1, in the Quarterfinal Round of the Union County Tournament, Friday night at Memorial Field.

A little over a minute into the game, Jake Batista found the back of the net, to put Cranford up early.

A key to Cranford's game-plan was to have a strong start, “We came out exactly the way we wanted, we’ve struggled with slow starts and missed scoring opportunities early in games and we have worked on it,” said head coach Greg Campbell.

New Providence tied the score in the second half when Cristiano Hocken scored but Cranford answered back with a goal off the foot of Sam Clark.

“We kept our heads up and rallied back, New Providence has a lot of speed up top but we trust our guys in the back and we felt like we had this,” said Campbell.

In net, Andrew Rojo saved seven and Addison Chang added an assist.

The Cougars will face top-seeded Scotch Plains-Fanwood, Wednesday Oct. 19, in the semi-final round.
