PISCATAWAY, NJ – The fourth-seeded Piscataway Chiefs advance to the semifinals after defeating the fifth-seeded Sayreville Bombers, 5-2 at home in the quarterfinal round of the Greater Middlesex County girls’ soccer tournament on Tuesday.

Both teams came out strong in the first half, when the Chiefs scored their first four goals and Sayreville their only two points of the game.

Piscataway freshman, Kaitlin Zeeb scored the game’s first point just minutes into the contest. Senior Lela Allen and her younger sister, Jordyn Allen scored within moments of each other later in the first half, followed by Zeeb who again found the net giving her the game-high of two goals.

“Lela and Kaitlin both stood out today, scoring early and frequently in the first half,” said Jen Vroman, the Chiefs’ head coach.

While Piscataway senior Ayana Garvin scored off an assist from Zeeb in the second half to secure the win, Sayreville’s comeback attempt was held to the two back-to-back goals scored by Brianna Barbosa and Nicole Cena at the end of the first as the Chiefs’ defense proved too strong the rest of the game.

“Our back line did a great job keeping the ball out of the net today,” said Vroman who was very excited for the win. “This is the first time we’ve gotten past the quarterfinal round since I’ve been here so I think the girls deserve it, especially the senior class.”

The Chiefs’ next play ninth seeded South Brunswick in the semifinal round on Thursday, a team they beat twice this season.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
