After that first goal, the Red Raiders calmed down and communication and the throw-ins improved, Ocean City coach Lisa Cuneo said. The Red Raiders scored five goals in the final 12 minutes of the first half, four of which came from Reimet.

“All these teams that arrive will work. And they’re going to work until they can’t anymore,” Cuneo said. “For us, we kind of have to regroup when it comes to our pre-game warm-ups, and that’s up to me.
“We have to refocus and come out stronger because every team we face is going to be tough on us. … I think we had our chances early on, we just can’t let our frustration get the better of us.
In the 30th minute, Slimmer sent a perfect pass to Reimet to extend the lead to 2-0. In the 33rd minute, Slimmer netted a pass from McKenna Chisholm. Another corner from Slimmer led to Reimet’s third goal to take the lead 4-0.
Reimet scored again in the 40th minute through an assist from Naomi Nnewehi to give the Red Raiders a 5-0 half-time lead.
“It was awesome,” said Slimmer, 17, of Upper Township. “We were getting connections, but nothing seemed to come into the net.”
Slimmer also assisted on Reimet’s fifth goal in the 58th minute to make it 6-0. The two seniors have a strong bond on the pitch, which Slimmer described as “special”. Slimmer also connects well with his younger sister, Joy.
