(4) Rumson-Fair Haven 2, (20) Shore 1

Jackson Hinchcliffe pitched five scoreless innings and Rumson threw out two Shore runners at home plate to help the Bulldogs survive another tight battle with the Class A Central rival Blue Devils.

Rumson took the lead on a sacrifice fly by Reece Moroney in the bottom of the third, set up by a double by Parker Shenman that followed a hit-by-pitch. The Bulldogs added a run in the bottom of the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Brayden Dill after Jack Riva hit a triple to lead off the inning.

In addition to their key extra-base hits, Shenman and Riva each threw out a runner at the plate from the outfield, with Shenman preventing a run in the fourth and Riva in the fifth.

Shore finally broke through with a run in the top of the seventh when T.J. Minner doubled and scored on an RBI infield single by Joe Santi. Matt Bruno closed it out with a big strikeout and a flyout to end the game.

Rumson will host No. 5 Jackson Memorial in Monday's SCT quarterfinal round.

(5) Jackson Memorial 8, (12) Southern 2

Jackson Memorial broke out for five runs in the bottom of the second and senior Nick Mellino highlighted his perfect day at the plate with a two-run homer in the bottom of the third as the Jaguars avenged Friday's extra-inning loss to the Rams in the Ocean County Tournament by eliminating their Class A South foe from the SCT.

The two teams traded sacrifice flies to open the scoring, with Southern's Dom Miranda giving the Rams a 1-0 lead in the top of the first and Brady Wendell tying it in the bottom of the second.

After Wendell's tying sac fly, Julian Caruso gave Jackson Memorial the lead with an RBI double and a two-run error on a groundball hit by Matt Koblos extended the Jaguars lead to 4-1. Charlie Meglio capped the second-inning surge with an RBI double.

Nick Izzo tacked on a run in the bottom of the fifth with a solo home run to make it 8-1.

Jackson will head north to play No. 4 Rumson-Fair Haven in Monday's SCT quarterfinals.

(7) Middletown North 11, (10) Ocean 0 (5 Innings)

Gabe Ahlemeyer pitched a five-inning two-hit shutout with two strikeouts and got plenty of run support as the Lions mauled the Spartans for their seventh straight win and 10th in the last 11 games.

Ahlemeyer also went 1-for-2 with two RBI, while Colby McMahon (3-for-3, two RBI), R.J. Kernan (2-for-2, solo home run, two runs), Zach Hampton (2-for-3, double, two runs, two RBI) and Dylan Briggs (2-for-3, two runs, RBI) starred at the plate for Middletown North.

Middletown North did most of its damage in the fourth, when the Lions authored a seven-run rally. Hampton made it 6-0 with a two-run single, followed by back-to-back RBI singles by Briggs and McMahon. Ahlemeyer capped the inning with a two-run single.

Kernan's homer made it 3-0 in the bottom of the third and Hampton doubled and scored on a single by McMahon later in the frame.

Middletown North will travel to play Red Bank Catholic in Monday's SCT quarterfinal round.


(8) Marlboro 2, (9) Brick Memorial 1 (10 Innings)

Alex D'Ambrosio singled with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th inning to score Mike Diver with the winning run and the Mustangs walked off with an extra-inning win over Brick Memorial to advance to the SCT round of 16 Monday at top-seeded Ranney.

Diver and Paul Santos hit back-to-back one-out singles to jumpstart the rally and Gavin McCarthy was hit by a pitch to load the bases, setting the stage for D'Ambrosio.

Nick Scaff and Diver started the game-tying rally for Marlboro in the bottom of the fifth with one-out singles, setting the table for a run-scoring error on a ground ball hit by Santos.

Brick Memorial jumped in front, 1-0, on a first-inning sacrifice fly by Nick Garbooshian. Nicco Maribo led off the inning with a single and scored after a walk to Brady Leach, followed by a sacrifice bunt by Joe Nolan.

(1) Ranney 11, (16) Matawan 1 (6 Innings)

Glen Cantalupo, Ryan Costello and Jack Tallent each hit a two-run double and the Panthers wore down the Huskies to advance to the SCT quarterfinals Monday against No. 8 Marlboro.

Matawan third baseman Mike DiPietro nearly got starter Brandon Falco out of the second inning unharmed, but his throw pulled first baseman Mark Kovach off the bag after he made a diving stop on a ground ball by Curtis Chropuvka. After a walk to Enrique Beltra, Cantalupo made Matawan pay with a two-run double off the left-field fence.

The Huskies cut into the deficit when Sean Hart led off the fourth with a double off the rightfield fence, moved to third on a groundout by Joey Bodin and scored on a groundout by Bryan McCartin.

Falco was impressive through four innings, but lost the plate in the plate with three walks and left the game with a cut on his pitching hand.

Ranney blew the game open in the bottom of the sixth with an RBI single by A.J. Gracia and two-run doubles by Costello and Tallent. Brett Wehringer ended the game with a sacrifice fly.

(3) Donovan Catholic 5, (14) Manasquan 4 (8 Innings)

Gavin Degnan hit two two-run home runs, including the game-winning shot in the bottom of the eighth inning that sent the Griffins past the Griffins and into the SCT quarterfinals with their 14th straight win.

Degnan crushed a two-run homer in his first at-bat to stake Donovan Catholic to a 2-0 lead and after Anthony Mursko led off the bottom of the eighth with a walk, Degnan connected on his second walk-off home run of the week -- this one sailing over the fence in right-centerfield to end the game with another Griffins celebration. His first winning homer this week came in an Ocean County Tournament quarterfinal win over Central.

Manasquan took its first lead in the top of the eighth on an RBI single by Cullen Condon to score Brett Patten, who singled and stole second to set up the scoring opportunity.

Kevin Prime hit a solo home run in the top of the third to get Manasquan on the board and Jack O'Shea's fly ball dropped in the outfield later in the inning to plate the tying run.

Tyler Levine delivered an RBI single to give Donovan Catholic the lead back in the bottom of the sixth, but the Warriors responded with the tying run in the top of the seventh, which scored when Connor Voelkson was hit with the bases loaded.

(6) CBA 3, (11) Toms River East 2

Hunter Del Guercio hit a game-winning RBI single to rightfield with one out in the bottom of the seventh and the Colts walked off with a win over the Raiders to earn a spot in the SCT quarterfinals on Monday.

Wyatt Hunt started the winning rally with a single to left and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jack Mocik. After an intentional walk and a conventional walk, Del Guercio flipped a 2-1 pitch into right field to plate Hunt with the winning run.

CBA tied the game in the bottom of the sixth on a two-out error -- the second of two errors in the inning that cost Toms River East the lead. The Raiders had grabbed a 2-1 lead in the top of the sixth on a game-tying RBI single by Ryan Ushock, followed by an RBI fielder's choice groundout by Luke Bush.

Will Fahey opened the scoring with an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth inning.
