Boys Soccer – NJSIAA Tournament Preview
As the calendar turns toward November, the NJSIAA Tournament is set to begin, with the first round kicking off with one game on Monday and in full on Tuesday. Thirty-seven of the 46 Shore Conference Tournament teams will be spread out across 10 sections and it is uncommon for the conference to go without at least one sectional champion. At least one Shore team has one a sectional title in each of the past three years and there are a number of candidates to make it four in a row.
While Christian Brothers Academy won its second overall Non-Public A championship and finished No. 1 in N.J. for the second time in six seasons last year, no public school team from the Shore has won an overall group championship since Holmdel won Group III in 2010. The Hornets have been to three championship games since then and Toms River South has been to the last two Group III finals, but no other program has reached a group final and neither the Hornets nor the Indians were able to bring a title home.
That could all change this year, with both Holmdel and Toms River South among the teams that are positioned to challenge for a spot in the group finals on Sunday, Nov. 19. Here is a look at all 10 sections involving Shore Conference teams with a quick dive into how each should fare over the next week or two, broken down into three different previews.
