Meagan Costello, Taylor McNamara and Rachel Huang got the East Brunswick (15-3-1) goals in the opening half to ease the pressure and provide momentum that they hadn’t had much of in first halves this season.

“ Jumping on top quick, which has been something we haven’t done much this season, that in itself gave us the momentum we needed today. That’s how we won the game, absolutely, without a doubt,” East Brunswick head coach Cindi Todoroff said.

Costello got the game’s first goal when she took a penalty corner pass from Leah Zweig and blasted it past South Brunswick goalie Lizzy Ruedemann at the 2:20 mark.

Less than seven minutes later, McNamara took a Costello pass in the middle of the field, turned to her right and shot a low shot past Ruedemann to double the lead.

Huang added an unassisted marker at the 12:51 mark to essentially put the game out of reach heading into halftime, where Todoroff didn’t really think about a potential trip to the conference finals.
