Junior Aiden Hicks headed in a free kick by senior Tom Siracusa in the 68th minute and the Falcons (0-6-1, 0-6-1) rallied for a draw against the Bulldogs (2-3-1, 2-2-1) to snap a six-game losing skid to open the season.

Monmouth cut Rumson's lead to 3-2 in the 58th on a goal by junior Ryan Kuldanek off a pass from Ethan Wallace, stopping a string of three unanswered Bulldogs goals after Monmouth opened up the scoring on a finish by senior Bryan Leonard.

Senior Sam Coughlin helped stake Rumson to a 3-1 lead by scoring the equalizer in the first half, then later scoring right after sophomore teammate Alec Pentikis to turn a 1-1 game into a 3-1 Rumson advantage within a minute.

No. 8 Holmdel 2, No. 9 Ocean 0

Junior Brendan Worobel and senior Connor Hinds each buried pinpoint shots and the Hornets (6-0, 5-0) blanked the Spartans (5-1, 4-1) to extend their unbeaten streak to 60 games.

Worobel lined up a shot from the right angle from 16 yards out and drilled a ball the Ocean goalkeeper Francisco Castelo grazed with his fingertips but not enough to keep it out of the far left side netting for the game's first goal in the 16th minute.

Ocean produced multiple dangerous opportunities for an equalizer before halftime but Holmdel escaped and turned in a dominant second half. Hinds provided the insurance goal in the 49th after senior Ben Milstein slid the ball back to him, he created space and ripped a left-footed strike from the edge of the 18-yard box and just inside the top left corner of the goal.
