Princeton Boys Soccer Team is State Co-Champion
Princeton finally beat Ramapo's goalie with a brilliantly executed cross and header, and nearly took the lead with a wickedly sinking shot from out front by Scott Bechler. A flagrant push in front of the Ramapo's goal by a defender with two minutes left in the second overtime went unnoticed by the ref, and time ran out with the teams still tied 1-1. Rules preclude a shootout in the state finals. Hats off to coach Wayne Sutcliffe and the extraordinary play of his Group 3 co-champions.
And by the way, could I borrow that mascot this coming summer for my backyard garden?
