SSN Surf Taco Week 2 Boys Soccer Player of the Week

Johnny Hart, Pinelands

Hart’s hot start has helped Pinelands overcome some significant scoring losses to graduation and the last week-plus has provided plenty of examples. The junior midfielder scored two picturesque goals in a 2-0 win over Lacey and was one of five different goal-scorers in a 5-1 win over Jackson Liberty later in the week.

In Pinelands' first game this week, Hart's goal was the difference in a 1-0 win at Point Boro. The junior has scored in each of Pinelands’s first five matches, totaling six goals in those five games.

Hart captured the first Player of the Week award of the 2019 season with 23 percent of the vote, edging Jackson Memoral junior Drew Walenty (19 percent) and Manasquan senior Rich Maloney (18). For winning this week's award, Hart will be awarded a $25 gift card to Surf Taco.
