SPARTA, NJ – The Sparta High School girls soccer team had a win against Morris Hills on Friday as they celebrated their seniors. 

The game was at a 0-0 stalemate for the first half.  The only goal of the game came at the start of the second half.  Emily Dilger put a shot on goal that Morris Hills goalie got a glove on.  It was not enough and the ball tipped into the net.

“They were physical but we held our own,” Captain Hailey Mead said. “Emily Dilger brought us together [during halftime] and said we had to play for our seniors.  We all pulled together and played tough for the second half.”
