SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Nadine Rouba, Christina Layden, and Kaleigh Gunsiorowski all sparkled for the Union Catholic girls soccer to spark the surging Vikings to their fourth straight victory, a 2-0 win over Johnson on Tuesday.
The Vikings improved to 5-1-2 with the victory. Johnson fell to 3-5.
Gunsiorowski, a sophomore, gave UC a 1-0 lead three minutes into the game when she converted off a pass from Layden. Then Layden put the game away with a goal off a corner kick by Gunsiorowski with five minutes left in the game. Layden, a senior, now has 11 goals on the season.
Rouba, a junior, made eight saves to pick up her third shutout of the season.
The Vikings will be back in action on Saturday in the first-round of the Union County Tournament when the Vikings host Roselle Catholic at noon.
