Goalkeeper Nick Cerrigone made eight saves in the game to preserve his team’s narrow one goal lead.

Mouskourie’s goal was his fifth of the season while Torter scored his fourth goal of the season.

The win improves West Essex to 9-4-1 overall while East Orange is eliminated from the Essex County Tournament following the loss and is now 8-2-1 overall this year.
