SSN Surf Taco Week 5 Boys Soccer Player of the Week

Danny Gallagher, Point Boro

Point Boro was inactive for 16 days while taking precautions related to COVID-19 and finally returned to the pitch last Saturday. It was a happy return too, as the Panthers upended Donovan Catholic for their first win of the 2020 season.

With only four seniors on the team, Point Boro is one of the Shore’s younger outfits but it was one of those seniors who led the way in the team's first win of the season. Gallagher assisted the first goal of the game and scored the third before halftime – staking the Panthers to a 3-0 lead that would prove to be exactly what they needed to hold off the Griffins, 3-2.

Gallagher picked up the most recent Player of the Week win with 30 percent of the Week 5 vote, beating out runner-up Long Branch senior Jason Laviola (19 percent), followed closely by Monmouth Regional's Ryan Kuldanek (18 percent) and Neptune's Marvin Muñoz Garcia (17 percent). All Shore Sports Network Boys Soccer Player of the Week winners receive a gift card to Surf Taco.
