FLEMINGTON, NJ – Sparta girls soccer lost their bid for the Hunterdon/Warren/Sussex championship title. In Sparta’s first trip to the tri-county finals in the history of the program, they lost to Hunterdon Central 2-0.
It was a hard fought battle with no score in the first half. Sparta’s freshman keeper Julia Flake stayed strong, as she has all season.
Cayleigh Glew came close with a break away shot and two rebounds in the same exchange. The Hunterdon goalie needed assistance from one of her defensive players to stop Glew.
Glew, a Junior said, “We came out hard. We new that Hunterdon Central was a great team and that we would have to come out fighting and we did. We played a great game and I could not be more proud of this Sparta team."
Sparta now moves on to the first round of the NJSIAA North 1 Group 3 bracket. They will play Leonia on Nov 2 in their home field in Station Park at 2 p.m.
