Monday’s Senior Night contest between Montgomery High School and Hillsborough High School saw Montgomery drop to 2-2 on the season.

Held on May 3 at Dan A. Noonan Field in Hillsborough, Montgomery junior Maddie Hogan scored a team-high two goals, while teammate Toni Chungunov recorded the only Cougars’ goal in the second half.

The only two losses this season for the Cougars have come against Hillsborough, this time by a score of 8-2.

First-year Coach Joe Riccardi has been looking forward “all school year” to being on the field with his Montgomery squad and feels the team has the talent to be competitive in the Skyland Conference this season.

“We have a great group of seniors and a great group of juniors,” Riccardi said. “The sophomores are awesome. I can’t ask for a better group to come into the season with. They’re a great group of kids.”

Both Hillsborough and Montgomery are scheduled to be in action on May 6. Hillsborough will travel to play Phillipsburg High School, while Montgomery is slated to play against Bridgewater-Raritan High School.
