Boys Soccer – Week 2 Surf Taco Player of the Week: Isaac Ball, Freehold
There are Shore Conference players with more goals than the three Freehold Boro junior Isaac Ball has scored this season but it would be hard to find a player who has made the most out of his goals more than Ball has.
Over the first two weeks of the season, Ball has proven to be one of the Shore best clutch goal-scorers, with game-winning goals in all three of Freehold Boro’s wins. Last week, the junior forward scored the winning goal with 1:17 left in a 3-2 win over Middletown South and scored the first goal of a 3-0 win over Point Boro.
Ball also assisted a goal by senior Abel Herrera in the come-from-behind win over Middletown South and during the previous week, he scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Wall.
After Toms River East's Dan Bodziak won by a razor-thin margin last week, Ball had a little more breathing room over runner-up Jack Giamanco of Holmdel. Ball collected 47.6 percent of the more than 17,000 votes submitted to beat out the 38.5 percent drawn-in by Giamanco.
