Boys Soccer: Livingston Shuts Out North 13th Street Tech in ECT Preliminary Round


LIVINGSTON, NJ — Seven of Livingston’s varsity soccer boys scored a goal in Monday’s preliminary round of the Essex County Tournament (ECT) to shut out North 13th Street Tech, 7-0, on the Lancers’ home turf.

Following a 2-0 victory over West Essex last week, this was the second-consecutive win for the Lancers, bringing them to 3-10 overall.

“Although the team we played today was probably a more inexperienced team than most of the teams we’ve played throughout the season, it was still nice and it gave us an opportunity to work in a game on the things that we’ve been doing in practice,” said head coach Roger Rubinetti, who stated that maintaining the ball is something the Lancers struggled with earlier in the season but showed improvement with on Monday.

The 11th-seeded Lancers outshot their 22nd-seeded opponents, 13-4, with goals from Aria Navi, Jake Goldstein, Joshua Golin, Cooper Grossman, Abe Ramitzki, Brian Kelly and Christopher Werner. Navi led the pack by adding two assists, followed by an assist apiece from Golin and Franco Burga. Elijah Elster successfully kept the ball out of the goal for the Livingston squad.

Livingston now has two days of practice before traveling to Newark East Side (No. 6) on Thursday.

“We played them earlier in the year and we lost, 2-1, even though we held a 1-0 lead—but they scored two goals in the last 15 minutes of the game and came back and D’d us,” said Rubinetti. “It’s a team that we feel we match up with pretty well and if we can go out there and play consistent for 80 minutes, I think we have a good shot at winning the game and moving on.”

Rubinetti said the team is looking to build on its recent improvements moving on in the tournament and is enthusiastic about the challenge despite knowing that the Lancers will often be the underdog.

“We knew early in the year that we were going to be very young, but we can’t use that as an excuse all the time, as I’ve told the kids,” he said. “It takes some time to get used to what we need to do against the competition that we play—we play four teams in the Top 20, so it’s not an easy task.

“Our goal is to see if we can play well for 80 minutes and knock off one of these teams that on paper are the favorite against us. That’s the challenge that we look forward to on a daily basis and then that will measure our growth as we end the season.”
