held the potent Farmers to just two touchdowns. This season, it was the “Wild Dogs” who rocked the Farmers back on their heels. The “Wild Dogs” held the Farmers to just 14 yards total rushing but did allow 146 yards passing – one a 65yard touchdown pass to Ron Booker in the third quarter.
“It’s amazing,” expressed Ciccotelli of the Raiders’ secondstraight win against Union. “They are a good program. It has been a measuring stick in this county for a long time. And our kids just did not back down. We play hard and we work hard. That is what we have done since the first day of practice.”
In the meantime, the Raiders mixed an influential running game with a devastating passing game to command a 277 lead at the half. Also the Raiders’ kicking game was effective in keeping the Farmers in their “back 40”.
“Our kicking game was good. It came down to blocking and tackling,” added Ciccotelli. “And again, we mixed it up well. We have a package in which we can run and throw. And that makes you (Union) play defense always guessing.”
Senior halfback Clifton Freshwater accounted for two of those touchdowns and reeled off 96 total yards
rushing. Junior quarterback Brian Schiller hit 8for12 passing for 129 yards, including a 47yard TD strike to tight end Andrew Pavoni early in the second quarter. Additionally, Schiller crossed the goal line on the next drive by hooking six yards around the right end.
“We had a great year and everybody played hard,” pointed out Freshwater. “Everybody came together. It was all about teamwork. We had a young team and everybody matured. Last week we lost to West Morris but this showed the character of this team. We came out, we played, we won.” (Veni, vidi, vici)!
Freshwater initiated the scoring with a five yard glide in the first quarter. Midway through the second quarter, Freshwater flowed 52 yards for his second TD to give the Raiders a 270 lead. The Farmers responded with their first score toward the end of the half when Rob Ramirez bashed into the endzone from the one.
The Raiders added their final touchdown when sophomore Kyle Adams returned a punt 41 yards to the endzone in the third quarter.
Cousar, who rushed twice for six yards, also had two completions for 42 yards, Steve Williams had four receptions for 38 yards and Mike Buffardi had one reception for nine yards. The Raiders finished their season with an 83 record while Union finished with a 64 record.

When the seniors finally got possession, they startled the juniors when quarterback Patty Oslislo, operating out of a shotgun offense, faked a handoff and rolled around the right side on twostraight occasions for huge gains. After handoffs to a variety of running backs netted small gains, a gutsy flag grab by junior Stacy Ciarrocca temporarily slowed down the drive, but Oslislo rolled again for 32 yards to the three to end
the quarter. On the first play of the second, Oslislo flowed in for the only score of the half.
“Our strategy was to use a lot of backs to confuse the juniors,” explained senior coach Jim Mitchell during halftime. “Because it is working we will continue using it in the

MEGLAUGHLIN HAD 13 SHUTOUTS, HINDS LED SCORING
Lady Devils’ Defense Played Key Role in Soccer Success
By DAVID B. CORBIN
Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times
Strong defense was key to the Westfield High School girls soccer team’s successful season record of 1463. The Blue Devils outscored opponents, 4517, and were never blown out in any of their losses.
The last line of defense, senior keeper Michelle Meglaughlin, was spectacular. In the 21 games that she participated in, she yielded just 16 goals, recorded 133 saves and had 13 shutouts. Sophomore backup keeper Kelly Schmidt, who played in five games, allowed one goal and had two saves.
“Michelle did a great job. She made some big saves in big games,” pointed out Head Coach Pete Giordano. “Defense kept us close. She kept us in the Cranford game twice.” The secondranked Cranford Cougars edged Westfield twice with 21 scores.
Senior Susan Hinds and sophomore Susan Williams were the Blue Devils’ primary scoring threats. Hinds, who had great breakaway speed, did most of the scoring and netted 15 goals. Williams was second in scoring with seven goals and added five assists.
Senior midfielder Alex Lee, al though playing injured all year, led
the Blue Devils in assists with eight while netting one goal. Always a scoring threat, senior Jenny Korecky drilled in five goals and had three assists while junior Jenny Hayes ripped in two goals and had five assists and sophomore Stacey Spass netted four goals and two assists.
“Stacey, Jen (Korecky), Jenny Hayes and Alex did great in midfield,” said Giordano. “Although she (Alex) wasn’t at the top of her game because of being injured all year.”
Senior Gwyn Lederman, who was injured late in the season, had one goal and provided five assists but,
most importantly, she was instrumental in keeping the ball out of Blue Devil territory and redirecting it to her forwards.
“Gwyn had a lot of skill. She knows the game well,” stated Giordano. “It was too bad that she got hurt.”
Senior Taryn Wyckoff, a four year starter, netted three goals and added an assist.
“I have a lot of respect for her,” commented Giordano feeling nostalgic. “She started for me as a freshman. She worked very hard on and off the field this season. She was a real team leader.”
The Blue Devils totaled 45 goals and 35 assists, but throughout the season they seemed to have difficulties getting some crucial goals.
“Overall, the team did well. We did have scoring opportunities but we didn’t finish,” said Giordano.
Part of offensive difficulties came about due to injuries and thinness in the defense which forced Giordano to play junior scoring threat Morgan Lang back on defense. Lang did, however, contribute one goal and one assist.
Gaining adequate playing time were juniors Dana Passananti, Kristen Pollock and Katie Danskin, who contributed three assists, one goal and one assist, respectively. Sophomore Ashley Kent contributed one assist and fresh man Laura Shelman netted three goals.
Behind the scene this season was senior Elisa Cognetti, who acted as team manager because a knee injury she had last year kept her out all this season.
“She played an important role being there for the girls even though she wasn’t on the field,” explained Giordano. “I just want to thank her for her help. We really missed her.”
Summing up the season, Giordano said, “We had a bunch of girls who did not want to quit. I’m proud of them.”
second half.” When asked about the juniors’ early offensive success, Mitchell answered, “We made a couple of changes defensively (later) and it seemed to confuse them.”
“We have been doing good offensively in the first half,” commented junior coach Jim McKeon. “We just have to block up the line more and run towards the outside. We have some tricks up our sleeve and we will
be ready for the second half.” On the very first play of the second half, Oslislo galloped 70 yards for the TD and a rout seemed imminent. But no concessions were made, the changes were made in the juniors’ defense and the seniors were stymied for the remainder of the game.
But the juniors were not to be counted out. In the fourth quarter, Lang and Dowling kept chipping off the yardage until the ball rested on the 20. From there, Dowling rolled right and in for the score.
Time was running out but very slowly. The juniors continued chipping away until the ball rested on the 35 with :50 left in regulation. A few plays elapsed and the juniors crept to the 25. When was it going to end? A screen pass over the middle to Hayes netted 22 yards and the ball rested on the three. As time ran out, Lang looped right and was knocked outofbounds as she “dimpled” the endzone. Overtime was needed!
Each team got four plays in overtime to score but neither defense would yield.
