Morristown had a dream season last fall highlighted by Morris County Tournament and sectional titles.

The Colonials, whose MCT crown ended a 25-year drought, are on a tear once again in the fall of 2017 and have won their first seven games.

On Monday, Sept. 25, Morristown (7-0) was awarded the No. 1 seed for the MCT and is, no doubt, anxious to tack on another championship.

The second seed went to Randolph, which is 6-0-1. Madison and Jefferson, both 6-1, were the third and fourth seeds, respectively. Rounding out the top 10 are Morristown-Beard (5), Mendham (6), West Morris (7), Chatham (8), Boonton (9) and Pequannock (10).

Seeds were awarded based on winning percentage and not votes by coaches.

Preliminary-round games must be played by Thursday, Sept. 28. First-round games must be completed by Tuesday, Oct. 3. Quarterfinals must be contested on or before Saturday, Oct. 7.

Boonton High School will be the site for the semifinals and final. The semis are slated for Saturday, Oct. 14 at 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. The title game will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m.

Morristown nipped West Morris 1-0 in the 2016 final on a goal by Callie Sundin. The Colonials earned the right to compete for the championship by shocking five-time defending champion Madison in the semifinals.
