Shore Conference Tournament - Semifinals

Updated Bracket

(3) CBA 8, (2) Rumson-Fair Haven 6

Senior attackman Ryan Martin recorded a hat trick, senior midfielder Jack Santos delivered two goals and two assists, and standout junior poles Quinn Kelly and Luke Krebs led a staunch CBA defense as the Colts avenged a regular-season loss and knocked off the three-time defending SCT champion Bulldogs to advance to their first SCT final since 2019.

Trailing 4-3 at halftime, the Colts scored the next five goals to take the lead for good, including a 4-0 run in the third quarter that saw them surge past Rumson. Martin scored off a setup from Santos with 9:24 on the clock in the third, then tallied an unassisted strike to give CBA a 5-4 edge. Senior midfielder Cameron D'Alterio followed with a goal off a dodge from seven yards out, and Martin scored in transition with 2:38 left in the quarter to give the Colts an 8-4 lead heading to the fourth quarter.

Rumson went with a 10-man ride early in the fourth quarter and CBA was able to beat it for a goal when junior midfielder Hunter Kilpatrick grabbed the rebound and scored after the initial shot from Martin went off the post and caromed in front of the crease. Rumson closed the gap to 8-5 on a goal by Grayson Goldin at 7:30 and made it 8-6 on a goal by Leo Passalaqua with 36 seconds left, but CBA was able to hold the lead and clinch the victory.

In addition to Martin's three goals and Santos's four points, D'Alterio finished with two goals, Kilpatrick scored once, Krebs had an assist, and freshman John Little went 10-for-17 at the face-off X. Senior goalie Brandon Desena wasn't tested often but came up with two clutch saves in the fourth quarter to help preserve the lead. Rumson received goals from Jake Cahill, Andry Croddick, defensemen Brody Page and Frank Argilagos, and Goldin and Passalaqua. Freshman goalie Seamus Gorman made five saves.

CBA will face Manasquan in the Shore Conference Tournament championship game at 5 p.m. on Monday, May 20 at Monmouth University.
