【N.J】 Times girls soccer notes: huge week coming for final two CVC unbeaten teams – New Jersey News

#Times #girls #soccer #notes #huge #week #coming #final #CVC #unbeaten #teams

And then, there were four.

The list of Times area girls soccer teams with perfect records is small, and it is going to get even smaller this week with some key Colonial Valley Conference contests involving two 5-0 teams: Highstown and Steinert. The Rams have a tough match with Princeton early this week, then will host the Spartans on Saturday in what is shaping up to be the top CVC clash of the season.

The lone other unblemished team right now is Pennington, and the nationally-ranked Red Hawks might stay that way for a while thanks to what might be the best ninth grade class in the country. Oh, and Pennington has a junior forward line of Morgan Kotch (nine goals) and Hailey Adamsky (three goals), with a defense that has shut down the opposition’s attacks. Pennington has outscored its four opponents 15-1 in the first 40 minutes of its four games, but the Red Hawks have also been alright in the second half, with a 10-2 advantage.

The two Skyland Conference teams, Montgomery and South Hunterdon, are still looking for their first wins, while the Burlington County Scholastic League sides are led by New Egypt, the final unbeaten area team.

What will happen this week?



Hightstown 3-0 Lawrence: Rams roll continued into Week 2 with some more impressive wins. Hightstown got three second half goals and is one of two CVC unbeaten teams left.

Allentown 2-1 Princeton: the Redbirds got two second half goals from Bella Conti, including a late winner, to knock off the previously state-ranked Little Tigers. Allentown is now in control of the Valley Division.

Hamilton West 6-4 Nottingham: the Hornets (1-4) got four first half goals from Morgan Bressler then held on late to win their first game of the season.

Pennington 5-0 Lawrenceville: for area teams, the last thing they needed to see was one of the nation’s top ninth grade class coming into Pennington to make this nationally-ranked team even stronger. Mariah Lynch had two goals and was one of four goal-scorers: the Red Hawks (4-0) have already had 10 different players find the net.

Pennington 6-0 Germantown Academy: in a week where PDS scraped by the INTERAC team, the Red Hawks rolled over GA. It was 5-0 at halftime for Pennington, which got goals from five different players including two from the area’s leading scorer, Morgan Kotch.

Hun 7-0 Moorestown Friends: the Raiders had five players score goals, including two from Tessa Falcone and Julia Espinosa.

Princeton (4-1) at Hightstown (5-0), 4 p.m.: massive game for both teams in terms of CVC standings and power points. Princeton already has a loss in the conference, and a second, with Steinert still to play, could see the Group 4 finalists out of the race early.

Peddie (0-1) at Pennington (4-0), 6:30 p.m.: for each game in the area it now becomes, which player from Pennington is going step up and find the net this game? Along with Morgan Kotch, of course.

WW-P North (2-3) at Ewing (1-4), 4 p.m.: how many goals will Aditi Singh score for the Knights? She is currently tied with Charlotte Garcia for the CVC lead (seven), and can pick up a handful more this week.

Steinert (5-0) at Hightstown (5-0), 10 a.m.: CVC game of the year, and Colonial Division game of the year, comes in a massive week for the Rams. Are they for real? We will know very soon.
