While one shouldn’t put too much into the results of a scrimmage, Haddonfield’s girls’ soccer team showed recently against Paul VI that the Bulldogs are likely to enjoy a banner season.
Saying Haddonfield should be strong in girls’ soccer is not exactly going out on a limb. This is one of South Jersey’s top programs, one that went 19-2-2 last season, finishing runnerup to West Deptford in the Colonial Conference Liberty and falling to Middle Township by penalty kicks in the South Jersey Group 2 final.
Actually, the scrimmage confirmed that both Paul VI and Haddonfield should be Top 10 teams. That also is no revelation.
Haddonfield won the scrimmage, 1-0 as Emily Carson tapped in a loose ball. Led by senior midfielders Katie Johnston and Maddie Kiep, Haddonfield has a duo that will control the middle of the field against many teams.
