SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – After losing to East Brunswick in double overtime last week, the South Brunswick girls soccer team came back with a 1-0 win against the rival Bears at home on Saturday.

“The team really wanted to beat East Brunswick today especially after losing to them in double overtime a week ago,” South Brunswick senior Samia Baig said after the match. “The intensity of the game was high right from the start and there was no let down until the final whistle. After numerous runs on goal we were finally able to put away a goal off of a free kick. We held them even with their last urge to score and (we) finally beat EB.”

Senior Jules Franco scored in the second half with 12 minutes remaining off of an assist from junior Francesca Dimitrakis to seal the Vikings win.
