Prior to Cardenas's clincher, Weinstein saved back-to-back attempts by junior Jack Longo and senior Michael Casper, both of which were diving saves to Weinstein's right. Senior Luke Pascarella and junior Brett Sieg each connected to open up CBA's shootout round.
Manasquan jumped on the board first on a 28-yard tracer by senior Tyler Guagenty in the 11th minute.

(4) Freehold Twp. 1, (8) Colts Neck 0 (OT)
Junior Adam Havens scored the golden goal in the fifth minute of overtime and the Patriots (13-5) pulled out a dramatic win over the Cougars (9-4-1) to advance to the SCT championship game Wednesday against Manasquan at Shore Regional High School.
Havens played a ball to the back post and, like so many other passes before it, it came up empty. The ball stayed in bounds and Connor Latona sent it sailing back into the box, where Colts Neck goalkeeper Dylan Jacobs punched it away.
The parry went right to Havens on the left side of the 18-yard box and the junior midfielder hit a shot that glanced off a defender and found its mark.
Havens's shot was just the fifth of the game for Freehold Township, which outshot Colts Neck 5-3 in a defensive struggle.
