Boys Soccer – Player of the Week, Postseason Edition

NRS Player of the week

NRS Shore Sports Network Boys Soccer Player of the Week

Carson Greengrove, Rumson-Fair Haven

Before the start of the NJSIAA Tournament, the 2016 Rumson-Fair Haven boys soccer team was going to be remembered for the Bulldogs earning their biggest win in a game that turned out not to count. Instead, it will be remembered for winning the games that count the most. The Bulldogs are going to play for a sectional title on Thursday thanks to road wins over No. 4 seed North Plainfield, No. 5 Spotswood and No. 9 Holmdel.

Greengrove ignited the playoff run with a two-goal performance in a 3-1 win over North Plainfield in the playoff opener, then extended it with the golden goal in a 2-1 win over Spotswood in Thursday’s quarterfinal round.

A Central Honorable Mention: Anthony Arena, Holmdel; Jacob Labinger, Matawan; John Caracappa, St. John Vianney


Divisional Players of the Week

Class A North

P.J. Ringel, Marlboro

Not only has Ringel scored three goals in three state tournament games – including two of Marlboro’s three golden goals – but he has done so while mourning his father, who passed away the day before the team’s state tournament opener on Oct. 31.

A North Honorable Mention: Rocky Garretson, Manalapan; Matt Mawson, CBA; Louis Reale, Colts Neck


Class A South

Dom Pizzi, Toms River South

After saving two huge penalty kicks to deliver his team a shootout win over Long Branch in the Central Jersey Group III opening round, Pizzi pitched a pair of shutouts in Toms River South’s next two games – a 2-0 win over Steinert in the sectional quarterfinals and a 3-0 win over Wall in the semifinals.

A South Honorable Mention: Mitch Reed, Toms River North; Joe Swanton, Toms River North; Tom Ruscitti, Central; Matt Babcock, Toms River South; Tyler Egnatuk, Toms River South


Class B North

Dan Frisch-Harmon, Wall

Frisch-Harmon buried two goals in a 5-0 rout of Hamilton West in the opening round of the Central Jersey III Tournament and followed that up with the deciding goal in a 1-0 win over Moorestown. Frisch-Harmon’s stellar four-year career came to an end Monday when the Crimson Knights fell to Toms River South in the sectional semifinals.

B North Honorable Mention: Stiviny Da Silva, Long Branch; Tom Amato, Ocean; Justin McKenna, Middletown North; Scott Weigel, Middletown North


Class B Central

Fenelson Etienne, Asbury Park

The Blue Bishops faced sudden death elimination in two of their three state playoff games and Etienne delivered a golden goal in both games. He scored the overtime winner in a 1-0 win over Middlesex in the Central Jersey Group I opening round and his second goal of Monday’s win over South River gave the Bishops the win with 5:30 left in the second overtime period.

B Central Honorable Mention: Joey Johnson, Asbury Park; Brendan Hueth, St. Rose; Brendan Wall, Ranney


Class B South

Mason Remondelli, Point Boro

The Panthers endured another heartbreaking postseason loss when they conceded the go-ahead goal in the 76th minute against Haddonfield on Thursday, but the South Jersey Group II tournament was a showcase for Remondelli. The senior captain scored a goal and assisted another in the opening-round, then posted two goals in the quarterfinal win over Collingswood.

B South Honorable Mention: Kieran Sundermann, Pinelands; Denilson Salgado, Pinelands; Matt Kimak, Point Boro
