"Despite the loss, it was one of the best games the Raiders have played," said Coach Allie Neidig. "To take a team into overtime who had previously beat teams we play by 7 or 8 goals was a huge accomplishment for us. Millburn is a fantastic program in the division above us."

Raiders field hockey will take on Mount St. Mary’s Saturday at 10:00 a.m., when seniors Cassidy Novello and Erin Lay will be recognized at home at Tyson Field.
