Wall wins sectional title


The Wall girls soccer team won its second straight sectional title on Thursday, defeating A.L. Johnson 2-0.

The Crimson Knights advance to the Group II semifinal 5 p.m. on Tuesday against Cinnaminson at Hopewell Valley High School.

Wall took the lead in the first half against the Crusaders on a goal by Sarah Gordon before Jenna Karabin knocked in Jaime Iorio corner kick early in the second half to push the advantage to 2-0.

The Crimson Knights dominated the possession and just missed several chances in extending the lead, while limiting Johnson only two shots on goal.

Wall won the Central Jersey Group III title last season and have added the Central Jersey Group II crown this year after going 18 years without a sectional title prior to last season.
