Shore Conference Tournament Bracket

Opening Round

(19) Marlboro 6, (14) Red Bank 3

Bryan DaSilva erupted for five goals and the Mustangs hammered the Bucs at Count Basie Park to advance to the SCT Round of 16. DaSilva notched a hat trick by halftime and scored three minutes into the second half to give Marlboro a commanding 5-1 lead.

Justin Gilson scored the first of two goals in the 15th minute to open the scoring before DaSilva led a run of five unanswered Mustangs goals. Ben Metzger actually gave Marlboro the lead for good with a goal in the 30th that broke a 1-1 tie.

Sam MacPherson ended the 5-0 run with a goal in the 47th minute before DaSilva capped his big day with his fifth goal in the 57th minute. He came out of the game for good in the 63rd minute, according to coach Dave Santos.

DaSilva is the second Shore Conference player to score five goals in a game this season. Long Branch senior Guilherma DeNovaes scored five goals in a 5-1 opening night win over Rumson-Fair Haven.

Marlboro will travel to No. 3 Toms River North on Saturday for the round of 16. The Mustangs, who have not been in the tournament since 2009, are 13-3 in their last four Shore Conference Tournament appearances, including a championship in 2009 and three straight semifinal appearances from 2007 to 2009.

(16) Ocean 2, (17) Freehold 1 (OT)

Junior Wadneson Alexis scored with a shot from the end-line on the right side of the goal as time expired in the first overtime period and the Spartans beat the Colonials in thrilling fashion to advance to the SCT round of 16 to meet top-seeded Toms River South for the third straight season.

Alexis ran onto a pass from Claudio Martins as the final seconds ticked away and fired a shot from the right-side of the 18-yard box that Freehold goalkeeper Jesus Lopez saved. The ball came right back to Alexis. Who regained his footing long enough to send a falling shot over Flores that glanced the crossbar, hit the inside of the far left post and carry over the line as the clock hit all zeroes.

Lopez saved two quality opportunities by Alexis in the opening three minutes and also made two acrobatic saves to deny junior Marlhens Nasanes in the final six minutes of regulation. Ocean goalkeeper Yanni Kavarakas saved a shot to the near post by Andy Rizo with a diving stop in the 67th minute.

Rizo scored the equalizer in the 44th minute off a well-placed through-ball from senior Anthony Matteo. Rizo outran the last defender to the ball, drew Kavarakas off his line and tapped a shot past him to tie the game at 1.

Ocean took a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute on a penalty kick by Martins. Ian Dwyer beat Lopez to a ball in the box to the left of the goal and Lopez took Dwyer out to set up the penalty.
