MORRISTOWN, NJ- The Colonials girls soccer team overcame an early 2-goal deficit with 4 unanswered goals against Montville for a 4-3 victory. Morristown improved to 8-3-4 with Thursday’s win on Senior Day.
“Watching this senior group, seeing them come together from sophomore year till now, and I couldn’t be prouder of their leadership and grit,” said coach Scott Hansen.
After two Montville goals in the opening 10 minutes, Morristown remained composed realizing there was plenty of time left.
“They started off really strong, and our defense shape was stretched out,” said coach Hansen. “We talked about it at halftime, and played a lot better in the 2 nd half.”
Midway through the 1 st half, senior Katie McGuinness drove a ball into the penalty area, that was untouched and bounced into the back of the net for Morristown’s opening goal. McGuinness played a similar ball in just a few minutes later, however she was denied by the crossbar.
Molly Cunningham and the Colonials came out firing in the 2 nd half, as she netted the tying and go-ahead goals moments apart for Morristown.Tara O’Neill, one of many Colonial seniors, managed to find the 4 th Morristown goal of the day, tapping home an Olivia Scott cross.
Morristown will finish their regular season with two road games, Pope John and Morris Hills next week.
