​MONTVILLE, NJ - The Montville girls soccer team lost both of its home matches this week, falling 2-1 to Morris Tech on Monday and 2-0 to Morristown on Wednesday under the lights.

​Morris Tech got the scoring started towards the end of the first half of Monday’s match as Emily Bajek scored from close distance. The Devils would add on another goal early in the second half as Melissa Herforth got an easy goal after a misplay from the Montville goalkeeper. The Mustangs answered with a goal from Bella Vito to make it a one-goal game and kept up the pace in the minutes after, but were unable to get the equalizer.

​The team honored their ten seniors under the lights on Wednesday and featured an emotional moment for Nicole Feaster, a four-year varsity letter winner who has missed the entire 2017 season due to a knee injury. Feaster kicked off the match and was substituted out, coming off the pitch to a standing ovation and sharing a hug with head coach Dana Bertoli.

​“She is one of the best people who’s ever come through this program,” Bertoli said of Feaster. “Just watching her lead from the sidelines and stay a part of this team after the heartbreaking injury she had has been amazing.”

​However, Montville didn’t get off to a good start as they allowed an own goal in the first five minutes of the match. The Mustangs played much better defensively after, which helped them create more scoring chances on offense later on in the match. Their best chance came halfway through the second half when they had two chances to score from close in, but Morristown goalkeeper Sarah Wilson stood tall in net and saved the initial shot, as well as the rebound. The Colonials capitalized with 12:26 left in regulation when Nicole Ferrara headed in a cross from Holly Burns to make it 2-0.

​The Mustangs will close out the regular season with three road matches, the first of which will be on Friday against Parsippany at 4 p.m.
