NEWARK, NJ – Just two months after the Livingston girls’ soccer team claimed the North 1, Group 4 sectional final championship, the girls were among the 50 high school athletic programs recognized by the New Jersey Devils for their accomplishments for the fall season. The Livingston Lancers finished the season with a 19-1-1 record and were undefeated in conference play. 

During the first-period intermission of the Devils’ 3-1 defeat to the Los Angeles Kings at the Prudential Center on Tuesday, several teams were featured on the center ice jumbotron. The Devils provided each of the teams with tickets to the game in the lower level.  

“It was really cool to be invited,” said Livingston head coach Paul Raiz, who was joined by 13 of the team’s players, three of his coaches and his two sons. “The tickets were amazing; I was blown away. The Devils have been great and really reached out to the community and have done a lot of great things for us.”

The long-time head coach was equally excited about next season. 

“We got a lot of good underclassmen and a lot of talent on our team,” said Raiz. “We’re going to work hard in the offseason and come hungry to finish what we came close to doing last year with that state group championship, but I think we’ll have a nice season. This season was tremendous and really special, so it’s hard to replicate."

Raiz said he has high hopes and expectations and that the team's goal is always going to be winning championships.
