NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - New Providence girls lacrosse gave a well-balanced team effort on Monday, as five different Pioneers got in on the goal-scoring in the 15-8 victory over Livingston at their home opener at Lieder Field.

Freshman Kaitlyn Cumiskey led the scoring tallying four goals and one assist, while Sam Scott recorded a team high seven points with three goals and four assists and junior Iris Kaloshi chipped in with three goals and two assists. Also contributing goals were Elena DelDuca (1G, 3A), Kate Marzynski (2G) and Sadie Miller (1G). Sarah Zeto made 10 saves in net.

Both teams came into this game wanting this conference win badly, said New Providence head coach Jennifer Henry. "We have our rivalries with different teams -- seeing it was a conference game there is always a lot of emotion there."

The Pioneers jumped out to a 4-0 lead before Livingston was able to get on the board. The Pioneers continued to dominate scoring five more goals, to claim a 9-2 advantage at the break.
Kate Marzynski opened the second half connecting on a pass from Scott in front of the goal. However, the Lancers held the Pioneers without another goal for over 12 minutes, scoring four goals of their own to cut New Providence's advantage to 10-6.  

Henry saw the need to halt Livingston's momentum and reset the game with a timeout.

"We can't let our defenses down and we need to play the entire game," said Henry. She told her team to come out of the time out as they played in the beginning of the game. "We needed to take our time on attack," said Henry.

After the timeout, New Providence did just that, they controlled the draw and moved the ball with smart passing to score five more goals to take the game.

DelDuca found Cuminskey in the crease to ignite the Pioneer attack that reeled off four goals in a span of three minutes to take back control of the game behind two goals by Cuminskey and Kaloshi and Scott each scored -- taking a 14-6 lead. 

Livingston continued to fight through New Providence's tight defense to add two more goals and cut the Pioneers advantage to 14-8. But the clock was running down, and New Providence was not letting up, fighting for every ground ball to the bitter end. Marzynski  added one more goal with a minute remaining to seal the 15-8 victory. 

New Providence will be back in action when they travel to Pascack with a 4:30 p.m. start on Thursday, April 6.

You Want a Check for How Much!

 My first admissions gig was working for a small liberal arts college with a pretty hefty price tag.  Picture me at a college fair: name tag in place, pile of brochures ready to go.  An eager family would walk up and we’d start a conversation.  One of the first questions I’d get from parents was about cost and the moment that $50,000-plus figure left my mouth I ...
