The Pirates were a relatively young team. They weren't particularly big. They were in need of a new identity. They found it on the asphalt surrounding the school's football field. "We wanted to be a team that hustled for all 32 minutes of each game," said senior forward Caitlyn Kollar. "Ever since Day 1 - even before Day 1 - we ran, we did every kind of conditioning for basketball you could think of. We went out to the track, we did cross-fit.

It was a brief, fleeting lapse in a game that Cinnaminson largely controlled throughout. It underscored one of soccer's harsh truths: The team that plays better doesn't always win. "I definitely think we were the better team today," said Cinnaminson coach Jason Meile after his team's 3-1 loss Sunday in the Group 2 boys' soccer state championship at Kean University.
