Freshman Gemma sparks Hunterdon Central to road win

Freshman Lilliana Gemma netted a pair of goals to give Hunterdon Central a 2-1 road win at Hillsborough.  Gemma connected just five minutes into the game and followed that up with a magnificent right foot strike with 17 minutes left in the contest.  Chelsea Rigby scored late in the game for Hillsborough, who drops to 1-2 on the season.   Hunterdon Central lost their season opener to Ridge in a rematch of last year’s group 4 final. However, the group 4 winners also lost to Ridge in their season opener last season and it was the only game they lost. Nonetheless, the Red Devils were disappointed in the opening effort. Similarly, Hillsborough lost their season opener to power-house Bridgewater-Raritan.   Check out the highlights from Tuesday afternoon:
