MORRISTOWN, NJ – The top-seeded Morristown girls lacrosse team’s first Morris County Tournament test was not a very difficult entry exam.
The Colonials pasted sixteenth-seeded Jefferson (7-5) by a 21-5 count in Round of 16 action on Saturday afternoon on the Morristown turf. With the win, Evan Mager’s maroon machine improved its record to 11-2, as the season is just past its midway point. Morristown advances to play Morris Knolls, a winner over Mount Olive in the 8-9 game, in Tuesday afternoon’s quarterfinal round.
Annika Begley led the Morristown barrage with six goals and an assist, while Nicole Ferrara was next with four goals and four assists on the day.
Sarah Grace Plott (three goals), Callie Sundin, and Shelby Clarke—the latter two with a pair of goals each—also registered multi-goal games for the winners, while Sarah Chupak, Logan Heher, Mackenzie Siverson, and Rachel Langenohl also got on the board.
