FHS Girls Varsity Soccer Falls To Hunterdon Central, But Not Without A Fight

vs Hunterdon 9-18-1546

Franklin’s Kimmy Chavkin, No. 10, scored the Warriors’ lone goal Sept. 18 in a loss to Hunterdon Central Regional High School.

On paper, the girls varsity soccer match between Franklin High School and Hunterdon Central Regional High School should have resulted in a big win for Hunterdon.

But the Devils – ranked No. 13 in the state – had a devil of a time with the Lady Warriors on Sept. 18, although they did emerge with a 2-1 victory.

That victory was not assured, though, and didn’t come until there was about a minute left in regulation.

The Warriors mounted several attacks in the remaining time, but just could not get the ball in the net.

Hunterdon Central struck first, early in the first half, with Franklin’s Kimmy Chavkin providing the response.

The game remained tied at 1 for the majority of the second half, until what Franklin coach Scott Burd described as a “nice goal on a long diagonal ball” sealed the victory for Hunterdon Central.

The Warriors fall to 4-2 on the season with the loss.

“I think we played well today,” Burd said. “I think defensively we were very well-organized.”

“Playing against a quality team, a well-coached team like Hunterdon Central, you pick your times,” Burd said. “I think we were very organized and in a credit to them, they were able to find a way to win in the final minutes of the game.”

“This team is taking great strides and getting better as a team,” he said.

The Warriors take on North Hunterdon on Sept. 24.
