MADISON, NJ — Madison picked up a 3-1 win against cross-town rival Hanover Park on Tuesday. The Dodgers get an important victory after losing in the county tournament over the weekend.

The Dodgers scored the only first half goal from the leg of Senior Captain Ryan Sullivan. Forward Matthew Warshaw, back from injury, had the assist on the play.

Hanover Park had one of their best chances of the game when their forward got behind the defense but was blocked away by goalkeeper Brendan Armstrong.

“Well Warshaw coming back from injury is big for us. We’re trying to make sure he’s getting minutes, but not overplaying him," Head Coach Erik Studnicky said. “He’s been absent for most of the season and we’re trying to make sure he’s one of the focal points of the team."

Late in the second half, Madison added two goals by midfielder Matt DiGiacomo and Warshaw. Both Sullivan and Warshaw finished with one goal and one assist. Armstrong had some very big saves for the Dodgers and was key for their victory.

“We now have some different pieces of the puzzle and we can give the opposing teams different matchups," Studnicky said. “That will help us get some more goals going further."

The Dodgers will look to keep it going against a tough Morristown-Beard team on Thursday, September 29th at 4:00pm.
