Class A North

No. 1 CBA 3, No. 4 Long Branch 0

Junior Dylan Cupo scored the first two CBA goals and senior Shane Borenius added a third to spark the Colts (6-0, 5-0) to a shutout win over the Green Wave (5-2, 5-2).

Cupo walked into a goal in the 22nd minute off a corner kick by senior Brett Sieg. Senior Graydon Santos deflected Sieg's kick first and Cupo followed right behind with the scoring strike.

Seven minutes earlier, Long Branch goalkeeper Tyler Abbot saved a penalty kick by Sieg to momentarily keep CBA off the boar. CBA goalkeeper Thomas Manners later saved a penalty kick with the score 3-0 in the second half to preserve the shutout for he and first-half starter Michael Jakub.

Long Branch senior Jason Laviola missed just high on a dipping shot from 30 yards out in the 37th minute and the Green Wave controlled the ball for the first five minutes of the first half.

In the seventh minute of the half, however, sophomore Will Thygeson turned the corner on the left side and slid a cross to the middle of the 18-yard box. Cupo was again the beneficiary, ripping a shot to the right side of the goal for a 2-0 CBA lead.

CBA capped the scoring two minutes later when Borenius broke free on the right side and skipped a shot to the far left corner of the goal from 12 yards out.

Rumson-Fair Haven 3, Shore 2

Senior Joe Stypa opened the scoring in the 11th minute and assisted the first of two first-half goals by junior Luke Pentikis as the Bulldogs (4-3-1, 4-2-1) held on to beat the Blue Devils (2-6, 2-6).

Sophomore Antonio Santos set up Stypa's goal before Stypa found Pentikis seven minutes later. Pentikis extended Rumson's lead to 3-0 in the 38th minute with a goal off a pass from senior Evan Quon.

Shore rallied with two goals between the 73rd and 75th minutes, with senior Kevin Silveira scoring off a pass from freshman Maxx Eichenbaum to break up the shutout. Junior Sage Finch then converted a penalty kick in the 75th to pull Shore within a goal.

Senior Parker Nickelsen rolled up a hat trick and the Mariners (8-0, 8-0) stormed past the Indians (3-5, 3-5) to sweep the season series between the two crosstown rivals and remain perfect to start the season.

Senior Jack Montanile assisted Nickelsen's first goal 30 seconds into the match as well as his third goal, which made the score 4-0 in the 46th minute.

Senior Ali Baish scored in the sixth minute off a pass from junior Vinny O'Donnell to make it 2-0 and Nickelsen extended the lead to 3-0 in the 34th off a feed from junior Jake Nagle.

Vitale scored off a feed from Morgan Fahy to open the scoring, then headed in a pass into the box by Patrick O'Hearn to provide St. Rose with a two-goal cushion.
