MILLBURN, NJ - The rain was coming down almost all game long, but the sun was shining on the Millburn Girls Soccer team in a rout of Montclair Kimberly Academy (MKA).
The girls won 6-1, as Maggie Speckhart, Carly Bernstein and Mia Dalton each potted a goal. Chloe Zegas also scored, leading the way for all players with two goals. Millburn was also the beneficiary of an own goal from MKA to round out their scoring.
The win pushes Millburn's record to 6-2. Speaking after the game, Millburn Head Coach Michael Hogan said that he felt this win was great for his team's mindset at this point in the year.
"This game was huge for us," Hogan said. "Not only for the fashion [we won in], but we were coming off of two bad results so we needed to get our mindset.
"And the way it was, we had a call go in our favor this game, but I was telling the girls I was happy that they went out with a killer mindset and they put the game away."
Millburn Center Back Hannah Meyerowitz had some
"We've played Kearny for the last two years and beaten them, Meyerowitz said. "So we want to come out strong. We know that Kearny is going to be a tough opponent, so [we] just have to keep our heads straight and just rally play against them."
Next up on the schedule, Millburn faces Kearny in a road matchup on Sept. 28, at Kearny High School. Kickoff time is 1:00 p.m.
