Boys Lacrosse: Rumson-Fair Haven Earns Top Seed for 2021 Shore Conference Tournament
As expected, Rumson-Fair Haven is the No. 1 seed for the 2021 Boys Lacrosse Shore Conference Tournament.
The Bulldogs are the No. 1 team in the Shore Sports Network Top 10, ranked No. 5 in New Jersey by NJ.com and are one of just a few undefeated teams in New Jersey at 12-0. Rumson's six SCT titles are the most in Shore Conference history and the team will be looking to hoist the trophy for the first time since 2016.
Three-time defending SCT champion Manasquan is the No. 2 seed. The Warriors clinched the second spot with a thrilling 9-8 win over third-seeded Christian Brothers Academy on Monday. Wall, ranked No. 4 in the SSN Top 10, comes in as the fourth seed.
A total of 19 teams automatically qualified for the SCT via having a .500 record or better. Red Bank Catholic and Ocean earned at-large bids because they were in the top 16 as per the LaxNumbers computer ratings. Point Boro (6-5) and Brick (5-5) qualified for the tournament but opted out.
The seeding committee went strictly by the LaxNumbers Shore Conference ratings to seed the tournament. Teams were able to jump the team in front of them based on a head-to-head win, as was the case with Howell and Middletown South, and Barnegat and St. Rose.
All games in all rounds will be contested at the home field of the higher seed.
