The West Milford High School girls’ soccer team got back in the win column last week before losing Oct. 2, while the boys team dropped its last two.

Last Wednesday's loss for the Lady Highlanders came against DePaul in Wayne and the final score was 3-0.

The loss followed a 3-0 home win over Fair Lawn last Sept. 26 in which West Milford scored two of its goals in the first half before adding its final score in the second.

Senior Sera Agostinelli scored two of those goals, while junior Julia Bono scored the other.

Seniors Nicole Soreco and Riley McGill each had an assist in the match, while senior goalie Gabrielle Soreco had seven saves.

That gives the Lady Highlanders a record of 5-3-1 after winning their first four games of the season.

The boy’s squad, meanwhile, stayed home to play DePaul on Oct. 2 and lost that match by a score of 6-2.

The Highlanders went down 2-0 early before the Spartans added two more goals in the first half to make it 4-0 at the break.

West Milford was able to get on the scoreboard twice in the second half, but it wasn’t enough.

That loss followed a 2-1 loss to Hawthorne at home the week before in which junior Luke Milko scored the Highlanders’ only goal.

Sophomore Alex Sanchez had the assist.

The boy’s team (3-8) tried to get back on track Oct. 4 when the team was scheduled to play Paterson Charter at home, while the Lady Highlanders will try to do the same on Oct. 7. in a road match against Caldwell.
