Leading the way for New Providence was senior forward Emily Molstad. Molstad scored a game-high three goals, two of them coming in the second half.

“If feels great getting that first win of the season,” Molstad said. “After losing to Ramapo on Wednesday, we really wanted to come today, especially since it was our first conference game to get the W, so it’s a big first win for us.”

In the first two games of the season, Molstad has scored six times, recording two hat tricks.

“I have just been trying to find my shot and take advantage of any opportunity I get,” the senior forward said. “I think today, as a team, we did a good job settling down and taking smart shots. We keep doing, were gonna have more of these 11 goal games.”

In total, the Pioneers had seven different players who scored a goal in the game. Freshman Iris Kaloshi and junior Megan Mahlstadt, each had two goals in the game as well.

With the victory, New Providence improves to 1-1 on the season and will play their first road game of the season against Saddle River High School on Monday. Game time is set for 4:30 p.m.
