No. 8 Southern 4, No. 2 Toms River North 3 (OT)

Senior Kevin Kiernan scored the golden goal in the sixth minute of overtime and the Rams (12-1, 12-1) won a wild, back-and-forth classic to hand the Mariners (12-1, 12-1) their first loss and set up a winner-take-all game on Wednesday for the Class A South championship between the division's top two teams.

Kiernan tracked down the ball in the middle of the field, navigated his way to the outer perimeter of the 18-yard box and ripped a left-footed shot going against the flow of the play, tucking it into the left corner of goal for the dramatic game-winner. The senior finished the game with two goals to regain the Shore Conference lead with 20.

Southern led on two other occasions in the game and also trailed by a goal at one point. Senior John Paul Prosperi scored the game's first goal in the 33rd minute off a throw-in by senior Brandon Notte, which was Southern's only shot during the first half and was enough to send the Rams into the intermission with a 1-0 lead.

Toms River North answered with two goals in a span of four minutes, with senior Ali Baish tying the game in the 45th off a pass from junior David Anderson and later heading down a free kick from senior Parker Nickelsen to set up a go-ahead goal by junior A.J. Emnace in the 49th.

Southern got back in the game with a penalty kick exactly 20 minutes into the second half, with Kiernan converting the kick following a foul inside the 18-yard box. Southern then grabbed the lead back on Prosperi's second goal, which he scored off a free kick by Notte despite Mariners keeper Dawson Kaniuk getting his hands on the ball first.

The Mariners leveled the score in the 70th when Nickelsen settled a cross from junior Mattia Assante and knocked it in.

The two teams are not tied in the standings with one game remaining against one another scheduled for Wednesday at Southern.
