Mike King’s 13 saves and Troy Carrington’s first-half goal weren’t enough to hold off the Newark Academy Minutemen yesterday at Centennial Field. Tied 1-1 at the half, Newark Academy’s Nicholas Williams had two second-half goals (three on the day) to hand the Hillbillies their seventh loss of the season. The 3-1 defeat puts the Hillbillies record at 5-7.

The girls tennis team swept New Milford 5-0 in the NJSIAA Team Tournament Quarterfinals for North Jersey Section 1, Group 1 yesterday in Verona. Senior Captain Jackie Noyes took her first singles match 6-0, 6-2 over Victoria Astirello. Ciarra Davison won her Singles 2 match 6-0,6-1 and Allie Vaccaro won 6-0,6-1. In doubles play, the Hillbillies teams of Caroline Chivily/Briana Tedesco and Angelica Bryan/Nell Karpinski took home victories. The tennis team’s record is 6-7.

In Hillbilly Country today the girls soccer game has been postponed and the tennis team has an away match at Livingston High School, weather permitting.
