CLARK, NJ – In their most important game of the season thus far, the Summit Lady Hilltoppers defeated the Oak Knoll Royals 17-7 in the Union County tournament finals on Saturday night at AL Johnson High School to capture the county crown for the third year in a row.
Summit (11-4), ranked 11th in the Star Ledger Top Twenty and the top seed in the UCT, showed why they are the best team in the county by, in many ways, easily handling 10th ranked Oak Knoll. They got a matter of revenge against their cross town rivals after Oak Knoll defeated them 12-10 earlier this year.
Caroline Cordrey, who has been on a tear this year while leading her team with 63 goals, deposited six in for Summit. Kelly Osmulski and Megan Paytas each scored four apiece as they broke open an 11-3 lead by halftime.
Devin Lawler got on the scoreboard twice for Summit and Kate Martino finished with a goal and four assists.
Kady Glynn made 12 saves for Summit against Oak Knoll; her second highest total for a game this season.
Summit will next play Governor Livingston High School in regular season action on Monday, May 14 at 4 p.m. at Summit High School.
Oak Knoll is now 9-7 and will next play host to New Providence High School on Tuesday, May 15 at a time to be announced.
