Undeterred, South Hunterdon hung tough and was able to notch a goal by freshman forward Devon Nini right before the half. The Eagles kept their momentum going in the second half with a goal by center midfielder Lauren Wendborn and two more by Nini for her first career hat trick. Goalkeeper Roxy Kreider finished with 12 saves for South Hunterdon.
