The girls posted a 10-win campaign for the second year in a row.
While its season may have ended prematurely in the state tournament, when taken as a whole, the Millburn field hockey team had another highly successful season this fall. Under the guidance of head coach Rose Twombly and assistant coach Samantha Wiedmann, Millburn fashioned a 10-9-2 mark, reaching the quarterfinal round of the NJSIAA North Jersey, Section 2, Group 3 tournament where it bowed to Hopewell Valley, 4-0. "I wish we had a better performance against Hopewell Valley, but I'm still pretty pleased with the season we had," said Twombly. "We had a tough schedule, and early on we weren't as focused as we could've been. But we made the necessary adjustments and kept improving." In fact, Millburn, which started the season 3-5-2, closed …

The Millburn girls rout Mt. St. Dominic 8-0 in the final game of the season.
The Millburn field hockey team ended its season on a positive, going on a scoring spree against the winless Mt. St. Dominic girls on a cold, wet and windy Monday evening at Miller Field. Millburn got three goals from Julie Cohen in the first half and rolled to an 8-0 win to end the season. "I'm just so happy that everybody got a chance to participate," said Millburn head coach Rose Twombly. "The whole team, even Fiona [Murphy] got in at goalie and some players got to score some goals that don't normally, especially Jordan [Lee], so it was nice." Within the first 10 minutes of play, Lee and Cohen had already found the back of the net for Millburn and the game was already essentially over because Mt. St. Dominic has scored only two goals …

Top-seeded Hopewell beats the Millers 4-0.
Judy Jansen saw a lot of action in the final game of her career for the Millburn High School field hockey team. "It was probably a little bit too much action," smiled Jansen, a senior co-captain who plays defense for Millburn. Hopewell Valley used a relentless offensive attack to keep Jansen and her defensive teammates very busy all game on Wednesday. Hopewell ultimately emerged with a 4-0 win over Millburn in the quarterfinals of the North 2 Group 3 Tournament. "Hopewell totally outplayed us," Millburn Coach Rose Twombly said. "We didn't play one of our better games. but I'm still very proud of the girls. The girls never gave up." Unfortunately, the Hopewell offensive attack never gave up either. Hopewell had an 18-3 advantage on shots on…

The Millers give up a pair of goals in the second half.

The Millers beat Cranford in the first round of the state sectional tournament.
Apparently 60 minutes isn't enough time to settle a match between the Millburn and Cranford field hockey teams. Their previous meeting ended in a 1-1 tie after two 10-minute overtime periods, but on Thursday, thanks to a timely shot by Sophia Gizzi, the Millers needed slightly under 62 minutes to claim a 1-0 overtime win at Memorial Field in Cranford. "We knew that the team had the potential to do it," said Millburn head coach Rose Twombly. "It was just convincing them to believe in themselves because we know their potential." In the second minute of overtime in the first round of the North II Group 3 state sectional playoffs, Millburn's Meghan Lacy intercepted a Cranford pass and began a four-on-two breakaway. Lacy slapped the ball to the…
