14D COURIER-POST, Sunday, November 24, 1985 HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER Top ranked Delran dominates but is loser in state final By EDCUNEO Of the Courier-Post WEST WINDSOR - Delran High School completely dominated the game but had nothing to show for it yesterday. The Bears dropped a frustrating 1-0 decision to Governor Livingston of Berkeley Heights in the state Group 2 girls' soccer final at Mercer County Park. : At the 12:35 mark of the first-period, Jen Balboni won a ball from Lorraine Papi about 25 yards from the goal and banged a shot that hooked inside the right-hand post. Delran keeper Joanne GROUP 2 Sienkiewiczhadnochanceof getting to it. It was ironic in a way. Delran has had a reputation of coming out slowly and giving the other team room in most of its games. But the Bears exhibited some heavy pressure in the first quarter and, with a few breaks, could have easily led 3-0. Kim Corr started things when she nailed a shot just past the post with 55 seconds gone. Jennifer Richter hit a bullet right at the goal minutes later, while Delran had another opportunity when Sharon Brune was planted on the doorstep and had beaten the Livingston keeper when fullback Katie Riley came from nowhere to kick the ball off the line. "They made us play our best," said Delran coach Carol Young, whose team was state co-champion last year with Glen Rock in the now-defunct Group B. "I thought that it was two equal teams out there and that the winner would be the one who got lucky. Unfortunately, it wasn't us." A stiff wind faced Delran in the first and third quarters, but it didn't slow the offensive attack. For the game, Delran outshot Livingston, 30-9. Governor Livingston, 19-1-1 and winner of the Mountain Valley Conference, did the only thing it could do to shut the Delran attack down - pack the middle and deny Jennifer Richter, Delran'sleadingscorer with 28 goals, a shot when she had the ball. Livingston's senior sweeper, Jen Sivers, did a nice job of clearing everything out of the middle and marking anyone that got past the wing fullbacks. Meanwhile, sophomore keeper Julie Riewe was playing the game of her life. Mahwah ends Maple Shade title bid By EDCUNEO . Of the Courier-Post WEST WINDSOR - Mahwah High School scored three goals in the second half to break open a close game as it defeated Maple Shade, 4-0, yesterday in the state Group 1 girls' soccer final at Mercer County Park. The game was relatively pressure-free for Maple Shade, as it came into the match as the Cinderella team of the tournament at 6-5-4. Mahwah entered with an impressive 1 5-3-3 mark. Again Maple Shade was the underdog that nobody expected would win. "There is nothing to be down about," said Maple Shade coach Fred Grande. ; ''We were supposed to do nothing this season and we got here. We expected Mahwah to be tough, just as tough as Bordentown. But we took the attitude that we had nothing to lose." Maple Shade wasn't supposed to beat Bordentown, but it did, 1-0. Again everyone present picked the Wildcats to go down hard at the hands of Mahwah, but Maple Shade gave it everything it had and gave the Thunderbirds a game for almost three quarters. "I said all along that we would be inexperienced," said a solemn Grande. "But no matter what happens, we will always be thel985SouthJerseyGroup 1 champion. Nobody can take that away from us." Mahwah likewise came into the game relatively inexperienced, as Coach Coloie Charles started only two seniors. But the Thunderbirds exhibited a nice passing game and just proved to be too much. If there was one knock against Mahwah coming in, it was that it couldn't finish the play. It looked like that statement would hold true as Maple Shade keeper Maria Bush dodged a couple of bullets early. At the 16:15 mark of the first period, Megan McGovern hit a shot to the near post that looked as if it would give Mahwah a 1-0 lead. But Bush leaped and lunged at the ball, pushing It out of bounds. Debbie DeFault did give the Thunderbirds a 1-0 lead when she took a pass from Kelly Hollywood and drilled it past Bush. After the goal, Maple Shade refused to give up. Denise Jacobs, who had the winning goal against Bordentown, nailed a toe ball minutes later that keeper Beth Topken came up big on when she dove and pushed it out. Two minutes and thirty seconds into the third period, DeFault returned the favor to Hollywood as she put a nice corner kick on Kelly's head for a 2-0 lead. The rest was history. "I felt nervous for a couple of quarters," said Charles. "I didn't know anything about Maple Shade. I knew that they had a .500 record. But .500 or 1.000, they still made it to the finals." Kelly Tremblay, Mahwah's leading scorer and best player scored her 22nd goal of the season off a corner to make it 3-0 with eight minutes left. "We pride ourselves on defense," said Charles, who is in his third season as coach. "If all 1 1 of our players think defense after an offensive surge, it makes us a better club." Kennedy wins Coaches' title H.S. GYMNASTICS GLOUCESTER TWP. - Kennedy High School's girls' soccer team suc-, cessfully defended its crown as it ; defeated Holy Cross, 2-1, in overtime '. yesterday in the South Jersey Soccer Coaches Tournament final at Glouces-, ter Township Tech. Kristen Falborn's goal in the first overtime period proved to be the win-. ning margin. It was Falborn's first goal of the season. x Donna Hartwell scored in the second v period to give Holy Cross a 1-0 lead. Kennedy's Andrea Rubio tied it with two minutes left in regulation with a 25-yard direct kick. "I'm really glad for the girls," said Kennedy coach Debbie Sullivan. "This COACHES TOURNEY is only my first year, but they did a great job. They are a great bunch of girls who have really worked hard." Holy Cross coach Bob Baschoff felt this one slipped out of his hands. "We had just as many opportunities as they did," said Baschoff. "But they seemed to finish them and we didn't." Holy Cross had been a last-minute replacement for Delran, which played in the state final yesterday. Kennedy got into the final by defeating Cherry Hill East, 1-0, in the semifinals. Kennedy finished the season 16-2-1, Holy Cross finished 15-6-2. Shawnee girls capture state title as Way stars FLEMINGTON - Senior Cheri Way's balance beam score of 9.6 clinched a state crown for the Shaw-neee girls' gymnastics squad in the team title championships held yesterday at Hunterdon Central High School.

"Delran was a heckuva ball-club. The sophomores and freshmen that had to play came through even though they were nervous." Delran, 17-1-3 and No. 1 in the Top Ten Poll, didn't go down without a fight. In the second half it didn't allow the Highlanders a single shot, while controlling most of the third period with the wind in its face. The fourth period saw Delran work hard and put on its best offensive showing of the day. Cathy Jefferson, who was all over the field from her midfielder's spot, hit a direct kick from 20 yards out that Riewe fumbled but gathered in as Richter and Jill Deutsch were breathing down her neck. With eight minutes left, Richter got the ball and made a few quick dribbles before letting go a hard shot that just skimmed past the crossbar. A minute later Richter was snakebitten again when she headed a Jeff erson corner of f the crossbar in what was Delran's best opportunity of the day. "Kathy Dane did a great job on marking Richter," said Cerchiaro. "I told the girls that one of the prime objectives was to control Delran's middle, and I thought we did that." Delran, which hadn't lost a game since last year's Coaches Tournament final against Kennedy, seemed shattered by the loss. But Young said they would get over it eventually. "They are the South Jersey Group 2 champs, and that is something they can remember," said Young. "You feel bad taking the spikes off for the last game of the season, win or lose. But how many girls can say that they went to the state finals two years in a row?"
