The Middle Township High School girls soccer team represented itself well Thursday.
The Lady Panthers couldn’t come up with the victory, but they certainly battled a Millville team that finished 16-3-1 last season to a 2-1 defeat.
Millville scored a goal off a direct kick midway through the first half and then another one minute before halftime after a Middle turnover. Middle got within a goal after the interval on a tally by C.C. DiMauro but couldn’t find an equalizing goal.
Middle (0-1) is next in action Tuesday against defending state champion Ocean City.
