NEWTON, NJ - Newton's girls soccer team lost to Clifton on Saturday, Sept. 19, making their record 2-3.

“We did not play well at all. We had too many mental mistakes and we were not moving to the ball. Clifton is a very good team but if we played to our potential we would have beat them," said head coach Jake Mull.

Goals were scored by Alyssa Petry with an assist by Mackenzie May and Courtney McHale with an assist by Kayleigh Furth.
