It will be a challenging game against Donovan, but the girl’s soccer team has played very well together this year and are ready. If they win the matchup against Donovan, then they move on to play #1 seed Freehold Township. An amazing season leads to a great game in the tournament, and it will be very exciting to see if Point Boro girls soccer can pull it off.
