NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - On a night where seven Lady Pioneer seniors were honored, New Providence was able to pick up their 4th straight victory, which is also seven wins in eight games, as they topped the Academy of the Holy Angels, 12-7.

Danielle Arace, Samantha Carter, Caroline Fairfax, Kate Marzynski, Lauren Pope, Samantha Scott, and Sarah Zeto were the seven seniors who were the center of attention before the 6 p.m. start at Leider Field at New Providence High School as friends and family in the crowd appreciated all they did for the program.

“The seniors have been so great for us the past four years,” said New Providence head coach Jennifer Henry after the game.  “They’ve grown so much since they have been freshman and it’s going to be really hard not having them next year because they bring so much to the team.”

The Lady Pioneers had jumped out to a hot start when they scored two quick goals, but the visitors responded quickly to tie the game ten minutes into the game.

New Providence got ahead soon thereafter, but struggled to create any separation from the Angels, as they lead 7-4 at the half, backed by a strong performance from Sarah Zeto in net, who totaled eight saves, and freshman Kaitlyn Cuminsky, who scored four goals in the game.

“If anything, I think the whole Senior Night nerves might have gotten to some of our players early on,” said Henry, speaking on the slow start.  “We responded really well in the second half when our communication got a lot better and everyone settled in and had some fun and we were able to take over from there.”

Take over the game they did as they were able to balloon their lead to 12-6 in the second half until the Angels were able to tack on a late goal, but the Lady Pioneers prevailed and went on to win the game.

Junior Iris Kaloshi totaled three goals and two assists on the night, freshman Sadie Miller scored two goals and senior Sam Scott tallied a goal and chipped in three assists to lead New Providence offensively.

Moving forward, the Lady Pioneers take on Old Bridge next Tuesday, with face-off scheduled for 4:30 p.m. at Leider Field, leading up to the state playoffs, which Coach Henry is prepping her team for with a particular mentality.

“Going forward, we are just trying to take everything one game at a time.  We are going to see who we are matched up against and see what we need to do to come out on top against that team.”

The state playoff schedule is TBD.
