The Dodgers finally broke through with a goal with three minutes left until the half. Off of a penalty corner, junior Michelle Montagna slammed the ball down the middle of the circle to Tori Ellis.

Ellis, who leads The Star-Ledger’s No. 5 team in the state in goals scored, deflected the ball into the top left corner of the cage, giving Madison a 1-0 lead.

The pair connected on another goal in the second half to seal the Dodgers’ 19th win of the season.

“Madison is a very strong and skilled team,” Summit head coach Jen Schwarzenbak said.  “They stop the ball well and we can learn a lot from them.  We wish them the best of luck in rest of the state tournament.”

The Dodgers will host the winner of St. John Vianney and Bernards for a spot in next week’s group final.
