Spirited Second Half Comeback Lifts Pingry to Somerset County Title

Trailing by four goals at halftime of the Somerset County Tournament championship game, the Big Blue took a collective deep breath. Then, they turned up the pressure.

Pingry (11-3) erased that deficit and climbed out of the hole to rally and win their first SCT title since 2006 with a 10-7 win over Bridgewater-Raritan (12-3). Duke commit Luke Engelke – a FOGO committed to Duke – was arguably the best player on the field. He won 17 of 21 face-offs and gave Pingry a distinct possession advantage late in the game.

Pingry’s Ryan Palmer, committed to Rutgers, led all scorers with four goals in the game.
