Pascack Hills- 4
Pascack Hills (4-3) opened the scoring with a goal by returning 2nd Team All-Bergen junior forward Shannon Goodwin in the 24th minute for a 1-0 lead. Pascack Hills would pad the lead to 2-0 in the 47th minute with the 3rd goal of the season by freshman midfielder Emily Sailer. However, Demarest would even the game at 2 with goals 6:07 apart by sophomores Liz Argenziano and Emily Holzer. Pascack Hills would regain the lead with Goodwin tallying her second goal with 8:52 remaining. However, Goodwin would commit a foul inside the box with 1:44 left in regulation, resulting in a successful penalty kick by Demarest sophomore Victoria Constantine and tying the game at 3.
Senior forward Sofia Abbruzzesi tallied the game-winning goal with 4:40 left in the second overtime to revenge the Pascack Hills’ North 1-2 semifinal loss from last season, defeating Demarest (4-2) by a score of 4-3. Abbruzzesi, who missed much of the last two seasons with injuries, getting a ball down the right sideline was able to turn the corner and dribble past two defenders, ripping a great left footed shot under the crossbar for the golden goal.
