WARREN, NJ - The Watchung Hills girls soccer team defeated Immaculata 2-1 on Saturday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Somerset County Tournament.
The Warriors will take on Ridge in the quarterfinals away at 2pm next Saturday.
“Anytime you win a tournament game, it’s a good win,” said WHRHS head coach Brian Figueriedo. “Immaculata had a solid plan and executed well, but eventually we were able to break them down and put away a couple chances. We knew it wouldn’t be easy, but we found a way and we’re moving on.”
After a scoreless first half, Jadyn Fleischhacker hit the net off an assist from Emily Morris giving the Warriors a 1-0 lead with 36 minutes left in the game.
Sara Sifert lifted the Warriors to 2-0 off a cross from Fleischhacker.
