MONTCLAIR, NJ - Amanda Romano led Montclair with four goals and two assists to a blowout 18-4 win over Columbia, Tuesday in Montclair.

Montclair, who is now on a impressive twelve-game winning streak, displayed their offensive power that’s been dominating teams all season long early in the match.
 
Senior midfield Lindsey Ewertsen distributed passes efficiently, as the home side got the early lead from a Julia Albert solo goal. The Mounties were quick to pull away on the scoreboard, walking into halftime with a comfortable 9-0 lead.
 
 
In the second half, Montclair came back to bring another win home, using an effective transitioning system where Columbia just found themselves watching Montclair pound goal after goal.
 
“We try to focus on ourselves and what we do well to come out strong” said Montclair coach Ann Jennings.
 
Albert and Courtney Snyder finished the match with hat-tricks, while Ewertsen, Jillian Jennings, and Natalie Rechan added two goals each.
 
Montclair prepares to face West Essex in the Essex County Tournament final Saturday 2PM in Verona, in match that’s been long awaited by the Mounties, who’ve been chasing a spot for silverware since 2009.
 
“We’re excited to see what we could do in the final because it’s the first time we’ve been there in a while” stated Ewertsen, with a smile mirroring the success of the Mounties’ season.
