Old Bridge 2 Carteret 0

The first round of the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament saw 15th seed Carteret taking on the second seed Old Bridge. The No. 20 Knights came in with eight straight shutouts. However, the story of the game was Carteret goalkeeper Demaraste Dorvilma who kept Old Bridge scoreless in the first half with her 16 save performance. After a score midway through second half Lauren Corless followed up with an additional score to seal the victory for the Knights. They will take no seventh seed Spotswood in the quarterfinal round of the GMC Tournament. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez the highlights:
