SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Mandee Mendez scored her 11th goal of the season to lead the Spotswood High School girls varsity soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Middlesex High School. The win was the ninth shutout of the season for Julia Masucci. Masucci made seven saves and has given up just two goals in 11 games for the Chargers. Denise Carroll earned her first point of the season, assisting on Mendez's goal.
Spotswood's overall record improves to 9-0-2 with the win over the Blue Jays. The Chargers remain one of two unbeaten teams in the Greater Middlesex Conference. South River High School has a 9-0 and has only given up two goals as well in 11 games.
