GLEN GARDNER, NJ - After falling behind 3-1 at the half to Voorhees with their four-game winning streak on the line, senior Tyler Lawton rallied his team, leading them to a come from behind victory, outscoring the visitors 4-0 in the second half to win 5-3. 

Lawton not only tallied three goals for New Providence, but hit the 100 goal milestone over the course of his career, to go along with 62 assists, showing his versatility.

Lawton, having performed offensively for all four seasons with the team, has embraced more of a leadership role on this year’s team, compared to years past where others took on that role.

“As a senior it is definitely important to me to lead my team and set an example for the younger guys,” said Lawton.  “I know I need to come in to every game focused and give it my all because I have a lot of people watching what I do and following in my footsteps.”

Lawton also credits his coaches’ dedication to preparation, as they have played a huge part in the Pioneer’s strong start.

After the slow start to the season for New Providence, Lawton has been a big contributor towards their turnaround, and will try to continue that trend with the Pioneers looking for their 6th straight win when they take on Vernon on Thursday. 

However, in the long term, Lawton hopes that he can make one final run towards some trophies at the end of the season.

“This year one of our goals is to win the conference,” said Latson.  “Also, ever since I’ve been here, [winning] the section is always in the back of my mind, so that’s another goal for us as well.”

Lawton and the Pioneers continue that push at 5 p.m. Thursday at Lieder Field as they celebrate their seniors.
