Boys Soccer – All-Shore Final Vote Winners
The All-Shore Final Voting Period is complete and we have our last four members of the 2018 Boys Soccer All-Shore Team. Below are the players you, the readers, selected from a large pool of players and they join the 41 who were selected by Shore Sports Network. Congratulations to all the nominees on great seasons and, of course, to the winners.
Danny Minze, Middletown South
Middletown South had some memorable moments during the 2018 season, including a five-game winning streak against some stiff competition. Minze played a key role in the winning streak with a goal and assist in a 3-2 win over Middletown North, a golden goal in a 3-2 win over Manalapan and a goal in a 2-0 win over Freehold Township – all within nine days of one another. The junior forward finished the season with six goals and five assists and will be part of a strong Eagles core returning in 2019.
Ryan Brodeur, Point Beach
The striker tandem of Ki Costa and Alex Atno were a driving force for Point Beach’s 14-win season, but the Garnet Gulls had help getting the ball to their high-scoring duo up front. Brodeur served as a steady force in the middle of the field, scoring eight goals and eight assists during a stellar senior campaign. He made his presence felt against Point Beach’s toughest opponents, scoring two goals and an assist against Toms River East, one against Lakewood, an assist vs. Manasquan and a goal in Point Beach’s lone NJSIAA Central Jersey Group I win.
Ron Bantang, Jackson Memorial
Not only was Jackson Memorial’s defense among the top units in the Shore Conference – it was all juniors. Bantang was one of its central defenders and its sweeper, serving as the last line of defense in front of All-Shore goalkeeper Nick Kinzler. Bantang’s only appearance on the scoring sheet this season was for a single assist, but he was a integral a reason as any Jackson Memorial conceded only 14 goals in 19 games. Bantang, Ben Schnaak, Chase Olejarz and Connor Lucas are all set to return as seniors for the Jaguars in the back.
Eric Wnorowski, CBA
Wnorowski got some spot duty as a sophomore backing up Aeden Boriotti and then backed up All-American Shane Keenan last year before getting a shot at the starting gig this year. He came through, allowing 21 goals in 23 games and seven shutouts against one of the state’s toughest schedules. In the 2-1 win over Delbarton in the NJSIAA Non-Public A final, Wnorowski saved five shots, including a six-yard shot to keep the CBA deficit at 1-0 and set up Jack Hempstead and Luke Pascarella for their dramatic goals that ended Delbarton’s 57-game unbeaten streak and delivered CBA is seventh state title.
