Tommy Savin’s cross into the box was redirected into the goal by a Shore defender for the game-winner and the Rockets (9-2-3, 6-2-3) upended the Blue Devils (6-5-4, 5-3-3) to stay in the race for the Class A Central title. Ryan Goggins scored the first Raritan goal on a pass from Peter Amato.

Class B North
No. 7 Manasquan 2, Long Branch 1
Ryan Flanagan scored two goals in the second half and the Warriors (11-3-1, 10-2-1) rallied from a one-goal deficit to beat the Green Wave (6-9, 5-8) and move within a win of a Class B North championship. Manasquan will play at Middletown North Monday with a chance to win the division outright with a win and earn no worse than a share of the title with a draw.

Middletown North 2, No. 4 Ocean 0
Elliot De La Rosa one-timed a Ryan Harmon cross into the far side netting in the 25th minute and Liam McGregor added another goal in the 51st to spark the Lions (10-3-1, 10-3-0) to a win over the Spartans (11-3, 10-3). McGregor took a pass from De La Rosa on the right side of the 18-yard box, turned past a defender and slipped the ball inside the near post to give Middletown North an insurance goal.
Goalkeeper Scott Weigel made two diving saves as part of a seven-save shutout – one in the first half with the game scoreless and another in the 70th with Middletown North leading 2-0.
Middletown North can win at least a share of the Class B North championship by beating Manasquan at home on Monday and can win the title outright if Wall loses to or ties Long Branch and Ocean loses to or ties Red Bank Catholic.
