“This is a good group of kids,” assistant coach Alex Alteri said.  “They are able to move the ball well.  They are strong in the back and comfortable with the defense so we can be more confident going forward. They have more speed up front which gives us more weapons.”

Boivona said, “Montville played a great physical game.  We were able to pull it together in the back and score.”

The team’s record stands at 2-0 as they look to host Mount Olive on Wednesday afternoon.
