Timber Creek shocks Cumberland in girls' soccer

The NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 girls’ soccer tournament opened with a bang Monday, as No. 15 seed Timber Creek upset second-seeded Cumberland, 1-0.

Amanda Magana knocked home a pass from Olivia McEachern midway through the second half, and Kate DeCaro stopped nine shots to preserve the win for the Chargers (6-12).

Jessica Bramante made four saves for the Colts (12-5-2), who failed to score for just the fourth time this season.

Timber Creek’s next challenge will come Thursday at seventh-seeded Highland, which advanced with a 4-0 conquest of No. 10 seed Lower Cape May.

The Tartans (13-7), who broke the game open in the second half, saw Nicole Bryan, Melissa Blevins, and Michelle Barbone combine for four goals and four assists.
