SPOTSWOOD, NJ - It's been a terrific start to the season for the Spotswood High School girls varsity soccer team. They are 6-1, winning the last six games after losing their season opener. However, while the varsity Chargers have been dominating on the field, so has the junior varsity squad.
The junior varsity girls soccer team is currently undefeated with a 5-0-1 record. They beat Iselin Kennedy in their last outing on Monday, 3-0. Alexa Reilly, Megan McCook and Corrine Rascona each had goals in the victory. Gabby Meola had an assist in the game along with McCook. On Sept. 11, they trounced Carteret's junior varsity team by the lopsided score of 9-0.
Shut outs aren't any thing new for the junior varsity squad. The opposition has yet to score a goal on the team. Hope Kraszewski, the team's netminder, has not given up a goal thus far and has 5.5 shut outs.
Reilly leads the team in goals with seven while Amy Warnebold tops the squad in assists with four. Both girls have seven points on the season.
Another impressive stat for the junior varsity squad is their goal total. They have 29 on the young season. The girls are coached by Meaghan Koppel who is also a gym teacher at the Memorial Middle School.
Both the varsity and junior varsity teams will look to improve on their impressive starts next week when their seasons continue on Monday, September 28 with a home matchup against Middlesex.
