MORRISTOWN, NJ – It’s official: Both the boys and girls soccer teams of Morristown High School have qualified for the NJSIAA North 1, Group 4 state tournament.
However, the similarities end there, as each side has a drastically different path ahead of them.
On the boys side, the Colonials earned the No. 2 seed in the section, and will host fellow in-county school Morris Knolls in opening round action on Monday at Greystone Park. Morristown, 13-6-1 on the season, defeated the Golden Eagles, 5-0, on October 7th in Denville. The Colonials are the defending sectional champions in this bracket, and are only seeded behind Kearny.
The girls have a bit of a more difficult task at hand, as the twelfth-seeded Colonials will travel to face 8-time defending Hudson County champions Kearny on Tuesday afternoon. Morristown will need to sneak a goal or two past Kearny’s United States U-17 national team goalie Megan McClelland to have a shot at advancing, and it won’t be an easy task.
