SPARTA, NJ- The high school girls soccer team put the pressure on early and did not let up until the final horn beating Montville 5-1. The Spartans hosted the Mustangs on Monday playing at field 3 in Station Park as they await the goals to arrive at the new Cassels turf field.
The second and third Sparta goals came as they drew the Montville keeper out of the net. A quick pass to the side and Sparta got the ball between the posts before the goalie could recover.
"I was very proud of the way we played in the game against Montville," Coach Daniel Trappe said. "The girls worked really well together as a team, showed great chemistry on the field and it was great to see multiple players score in the game. This really says a lot about how hard the team works at practice."
The win was a team effort with goals and assists from seven players. Kate Mazzella led with two goals and an assist. Faith Stewart had a goal and an assist. Jessica Schoenfeld and Rebecca Lefkowitz each added a goal. Katie Groome and Alisa Williamson each contributed with an assist.
The goalies split time in new with M DiMarco stopping three Montville shots and Taige Kellenberger denying two. Spartan offense put 10 shots on the Mustang goalie.
On Thursday, the girls go to Greystone-Central Park to play Morristown High School, hoping to build on their 3-0 record.
