BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Gov. Livingston boys soccer team defeated Plainfield, 3-1, on Tuesday. The Highlanders have been having  a successful season with a current record of 11-1. 

Oliver Korngor from Plainfield (6-6-2) scored the first goal, and Plainfield held the 1-0 lead at the half.  

"Well, we didn't play well in the first half. You know, we've been down this road before, but we were able to come back, so we didn't panic," said Gov. Livingston Coach Bruno Somma.

Gov. Livingston dominated the second half with Chris Moran, Markos Mavrostomos and Mike McKenna scoring goals.  McKenna had one assist and Tiago Paiva had two assists.

"I knew we were going to come back because we always do.  We knew we were in better condition so scoring that second goal was really a positive. I knew we were going to win," said Mavrostomos.

"We did alright, we started off strong, but the last 20 minutes we let down our guard. I think the other team [Gov. Livingston] played really well and they were very consistent and they never gave up. They won by playing simple and good soccer, so, congratulations to them," said Plainfield head coach Ronald Umana.

Gov. Livingston plays home against Jonathan Dayton on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 4 p.m.
