If the school name Millburn (Millburn, N.J.) rings a bell for boys' soccer, perhaps it should. This New Jersey squad has become giant killers in the past five years, and Wednesday the program added yet another victim to an already impressive list.

NorthJersey.com reported on Millburn's latest noteworthy feat, where you will find all of the details.

However, I'll add context to this victory.

In 2007, Millburn opened the season with a 1-0 win over St. Benedict's (Newark, N.J.), marking the Gray Bees' first instate loss since 2003 and only the program's second since 1991. A year later, Millburn burned undefeated and heavily favored Ramapo (Franklin Lakes, N.J.) in the Group 3 state semifinals on its way to a state title.

Granted, the program has undergone a coaching change and none of the varsity players remain from those earlier victories, but once again Millburn is earning the title of "Giant Killer."
