In a battle of undefeated U12 Flight 1 teams Hackettstown took down the Florham Park Soccer Rockers 4-2.
For the second season we have now seen a team move fields to get the Rockers on a U9 Field to neutralize the greatest weapon in the MCYSA—THE GIA BOMB!!!!
Coach Kelly clearly did not have his team prepared to start the game and they went down 3-0 in the first ten minutes. The team woke up and Sam Cicerone opened the scoring off a feed from Gracie Kelly. HTOWN then received a penalty kick on a borderline foul to say the least. Keeper Gia Dalessio had zero chance to make the save as the ref used the U9 mark off for the penalty and the score was 4-1. Cicerone and Kelly reversed the roles and Kelly scored off an assist from Cicerone to get the score back to 4-2 going into the half.
The Rockers opened the second half in attack mode and went 12 minutes in the offense zone. A dozen scoring chances were created but the finishing polish wasn’t there and the score ended at 4-2.
Jess Byrne Mia Heinold Ashley Peterson Isabelle Medich Sara Coto Mia Zirpoli Ryan Oleary Sadie O’Donnell and Boppy all contributed for the Rockers.
Rockers back in action Sunday vs Springfield.
