West Morris Central’s fall teams have had varied results as of late, but continue to streak toward playoff hopes and keep their respective seasons alive. Let’s take a look at what some of the teams have accomplished recently.
The girls soccer team advanced to the Morris County Tournament semifinals after narrowly defeating Pequannock 2-1 over the weekend in a contest that required two overtime periods. Both goals came from Central’s Sydney Sapir. The team now stands at 11-1-2 on the season.
Despite a painful loss in the Morris County Tournament to Montville, the volleyball team has put together a winning streak of late, beating two highly ranked teams in three days.

The team followed up the big win by avenging its MCT loss to Montville, beating the team in straight sets Monday afternoon.
