EDISON — Matt Nader of Bernardsville, a senior at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison, showed a flair for tradition when he set the Wardlaw-Hartridge boys’ soccer record for most career goals on Oct. 19.
Playing in his final Fall Fair and Homecoming Day soccer game on the school’s new artificial turf field, Nader scored two goals in the first half to lead the Rams to a 4-0 victory over Noor Ul-Iman School. Nader’s first score tied the record and his second goal broke the record set by Arturo Martinez in 2011.
Nader now has 55 career goals, which tops the boys’ all-time list but still trails Valentina Margiottiello, who set the Wardlaw-Hartridge girls’ mark and overall school record with 62 goals last fall.
