Boys Soccer – SSN Players of the Week, Oct. 17 to Oct. 23

NRS Player of the week

NRS Shore Sports Network Player of the Week

P.J. Ringel, Marlboro

Already recognized as a divisional player of the week, Ringel continued his scoring tear last week in three big Marlboro wins. He began the week with a hat trick in a 4-1 win over Neptune, then scored two huge goals in a win over nationally ranked CBA. Although he did not score in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Pinelands in the Shore Conference Tournament, Ringel assisted the goal by Brian Dates that proved to be the difference.

For the season, Ringel now has 17 goals for a Marlboro team that is on a Shore-Conference-best 14-game winning streak. Marlboro is one win from matching season-high winning streaks in the conference held by CBA and Point Boro, both of which saw their runs end last week.

A North Honorable Mention: Patrick Kollman, CBA; Adrian Barajas, Freehold Twp.; Ryan Tompkins, Colts Neck; Jon Finocchiaro, Freehold Twp.

Divisional Players of the Week

Class A Central

Anthony Arena, Holmdel

Arena dominated Saturday’s win over Ocean – a resounding 4-1 result in favor of Holmdel. He scored the first goal a little more than five minutes into the game, set up the corner kick that resulted in the second goal and assisted the team’s fourth goal.

A Central Honorable Mention: Leo Nobrega, Holmdel; Jack Murray, Holmdel; Griffin Hayward, Matawan; Peter Amato, Raritan


Class A South

Dan Russo, Jackson Memorial

Russo scored a goal in his team’s 2-0 win over Brick to start the week and scored a go-ahead goal with seven minutes left in Jackson Memorial’s wild, penalty-kick victory over Raritan during Thursday’s SCT opening round.

A South Honorable Mention: Ben Patti, Jackson Memorial; Brad Bischoff, Southern; Joe Weinstein, Jackson Memorial; Brandon Copeland, Toms River North

Class B North

Liam McGregor, Middletown North

After assisting a goal in his team’s 2-0 win over Manasquan on Monday, McGregor stepped up for another assist plus a goal of his own in a 2-0 win over Asbury Park Saturday in the Shore Conference Tournament round of 16.

B North Honorable Mention: Danny Minze, Middletown South; Jordan Ornowski, Ocean; Joel Burgos, Monmouth; Dan Frisch-Harmon, Wall


Class B Central

Ronald JeanVilmar, Asbury Park

Asbury Park wrapped up its first outright Class B Central championship in more than two decades by beating Ranney last Monday. JeanVilmar carried the load, scoring all three goals in the 3-0 Blue Bishops win.

B Central Honorable Mention: Cavialy Romulus, Asbury Park; Eben Landau, Asbury Park; Shown Narcisse, Asbury Park; Ricardo Velasco, Keyport


Class B South

Tyler Haines, Point Boro

Haines was a rock during Point Boro’s 15-game winning streak, which ended Saturday against Freehold Township thanks to a pair of goals he senior keeper had little chance of saving. Earlier in the week, Haines pitched well-earned shutouts against Pinelands to clinch the B South title and against St. Rose to advance out of the SCT first round.

B South Honorable Mention: Liam Kirinovic, Point Boro; Reilly Hunt, Lacey; Jon Michael Pereira, Donovan Catholic; Matt O’Connell, Pinelands
