Pingry 5 Hillsborough 2

Since their opening day loss to Middletown South, Pingry has been red hot. The Big Blue have reeled off three straight wins with at least four goals scored in each contest. Peter Korn, Lachlan Gibson, Joe Faccone, Eric Bush and Jared Kordonsky all lit the lamp in a rematch of last year’s Skyland Conference final.
