EWING, NJ –A season of dominance ended in familiar fashion for Eastern’s field hockey team. Applying consistent pressure all game, Eastern concluded a perfect season with Sunday’s 5-2 win over West Essex in the Tournament of Champion final at the College of New Jersey.

Thus the Vikings finished 27-0 in earning their fourth TOC title since the inception of the tournament in 2006.

The Vikings took a 4-1 halftime lead on goals from Kasey Morano, Emma Johansson, Erin Hoag and Karlee Spirit.

Vikings’ freshman Austyn Cuneo increased the lead to 5-1 with 16:29 left in the second half. That was Cuneo’s 69th goal of the season, tying the single-season state mark shared by Eastern Kelsey Mitchell in 2009 and West Essex’s Michelle Vizzuso in 1994.
