Lady Wolverines Advance to Regional Soccer Final

The Essex County College Lady Wolverines soccer team seeks to defend its Region XIX title this Saturday, October 27. The team advanced to the finals following a 1-0 victory over Harcum College this past Saturday.

Ashari Bowen, off an assist from Shanearay Wilkins, netted the game’s lone goal in the first half. Goalie Nicolette Craig recorded four saves in posting the shutout.

Coach Monique Edouard’s 9-1-1 squad will take on Sussex County Community College at 12 p.m. in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. The Lady Wolverines have a 1-0 victory earlier this season over the Sussex Skylanders.

“It way an amazing victory to bring the team back to the region final,” said Coach Edouard. “It was a collaborative effort from the entire team and I am so proud of them. But we still have a big one coming up this Saturday.  We just need to stay focused.”

Meanwhile, the 9-1 men’s soccer team will take on Harcum College at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow, October 23 in the Region XIX semi-finals. That game is set for 2:30 p.m. at Weequahic Park in Newark. Dr. Richard Esposito’s team won at Harcum, 3-1, earlier this year.

The winner of that game will travel to Conshohocken as well on Saturday for the regional final.
