PREGAME North Hunterdon is in the all-green with gold trim and numbers; Kingsway is in the white with black kilts and red numerals

PREGAME The teams are warming up under bright blue skies, temperatures around 75 degrees

PREGAME A common opponent for these two sides is The Lawrenceville (N.J.) School. Kingsway beat Lawrenceville 5-0 and North came out a 1-0 victor

PREGAME A huge key for both these teams is their ability to focus on the here and now. Both teams would not be blamed for looking forward to their participation in next weekend’s National High School Invitational, but their coaches will have them focus on the task at hand

PREGAME There have been some significant results on both sides of the ledger, ones which jumble up the rankings like a game of Boggle. This week, the Lions lost to Basking Ridge Ridge (N.J.). Also, Kingsway went up north and beat Non-Public champion Summit Oak Knoll (N.J.)

PREGAME Kingsway, coached by Dana Ott, could be the Group IV team that unseats Eastern in the South Jersey ranks this season. The Dragons are led by forward Isabella Sanchez

PREGAME North is the defending state Group III champions. It is a team that truly found itself last year, winning the treble (county tournament, sectional, and state championship) thanks to Geoffrey Chrisman’s coaching. The Lions are led by senior Lauren Masters, a forward with tremendous skills

PREGAME Kingsway is 3-0 this season; North Hunterdon is 3-1

PREGAME Hello, and welcome to Barchuk Field for this intersectional field hockey game between Clinton North Hunterdon (N.J.) and Woolwich Kingsway (N.J.)
