Boys Soccer – Week 5 Surf Taco Player of the Week: Joe Weinstein, Manasquan
Week 5 Surf Taco Boys Soccer Player of the Week
Joe Weinstein, Manasquan
Manasquan continues to be one of the Shore’s streakier teams and it's safe to call its current stretch a winning streak.
After losing three in a row to fall to 5-4, the Warriors won three last week to improve to 8-4 and all three wins were shutouts credited to their junior goalkeeper. Manasquan defeated Raritan 2-0, Monmouth 1-0 and Long Branch 1-0, with both the Monmouth and Long Branch wins coming in overtime. On top of working extra time to record two of the shutouts, Weinstein and the defense kept two hot scorers in Raritan's Jake Fortune and Long Branch's Stiviny Silva off the board.
Weinstein transferred in from Jackson Memorial prior to the school year and has settled in nicely, with 12 goals allowed in 12 games and six shutouts.
Manasquan's goalkeeper won a close three-man race to capture the Week 5 Player of the Week with 20.76 percent of the 11,548 votes cast. Manchester's Blake Weiner finished 66 votes short of Weinstein at 20.19 percent and Toms River South's Danny Caruso collected 19.82 percent to come in third. Marlboro's Brandon Grine also racked up 15 percent of the vote and Fortune came in at 14.5.
