Mahwah High School’s boys varsity soccer team is two games away from clinching the Group 2 State Tournament Championship, and the team seems poised for the challenges that lie ahead.
The T-Birds beat Kittatinny 3-1 in the state quarterfinal game Monday afternoon.
“These kids work hard, and they play soccer year round,” Coach Vince Vespe said. Monday, “they played well, again.”
According to their coach, the team has been playing well together all season. The team of 21 has 16 senior members, and a 17-1 record.
Monday’s game was the second in the state tournament. Mahwah beat Glen Rock 2-1 in the first round game Saturday.
The team will play a semi-final game Thursday.
“We are going into the [semi-finals] confident,” Vespe said. “We feel like we are the best team.”
