In the final minute of the first half, Hailee Reinhardt delivered a perfect ball on the corner kick that was headed home by sophomore Marissa Sciorilli who picked the perfect time to score her first varsity goal. With a 2-0 lead at the half, it looked like it would be a comfortable Crimson Knights victory when Jenna Karabin scored her second goal of the game at the 60-minute mark. But Freehold Township mounted an impressive comeback scoring two goals in the span of two minutes starting with a Jessica Judge free kick that clanked off the post and in the net followed by a Jasmine Colbert goal from close range. Freehold Township got within 3-2 with 12 minutes to go, but seconds after the Patriots flurry, Karabin halted the momentum with a fantastic low shot weaving around two defenders.

Somerville High School Football Preview
Vanderbeek’s senior returning quarterback, Ryan Kovacs, made key adjustments last season as he learned his new no-huddle offense and while senior defensive lineman, Ryan Hrabinski, admits that the fast pace offensive is impressive, he also thinks the Pioneer defense should not be overlooked. This is because Vanderbeek has introduced rugby-style tackling to his team thanks to his five assistant coaches who once attended Rutgers University. With the aid of a young and experienced coaching staff, Somerville is looking to have another strong season. The Pioneers play their first game at home against Cranford, whom they defeated last season 41-17.
