Byram Hills coach Mike Martino may be in his first year at the helm of the Bobcats and the team may have lost nine seniors from last year’s roster, but both knew exactly what they were up against Friday night in Cornwall.
After a “sluggish” start, Byram Hills bombarded the reigning state semifinalist with four second-half goals in approximately 15 minutes en route to a 5-1 win.
“We had a nice, long trip up there and the girls came out a little sluggish; then they woke up,” Martino said.
Remi Godner’s header approximately 10 minutes into the half gave the Bobcats (9-1) the lead and Godner her second goal of the day. Nicole Hoffman, Carly Burnett and Jenna Roston added insurance goals about midway through the half.
“(Godner’s goal) really threw gas on the fire; then it was, ‘Bang, bang, bang,’” Martino said. “Godner’s header lifted the team to the next level.”
Martino said the team’s goals are to reach states this year, adding that the Bobcats “definitely want the trip this year.”
