No. 4 Red Bank Catholic 2, No. 7 Manasquan 0

Senior Vincent Bianchi staked RBC to a 1-0 lead with a first-inning sacrifice fly and went on to pitch six scoreless innings to lead the Caseys to a series sweep of the Warriors.

BIanchi faced a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the bottom of the third with Manasquan's two most dangerous hitters due up and struck out both James Harmstead and Alex Galvan back-to-back to end the threat.

Manasquan also loaded the bases in the bottom of the sixth with two out but Bianchi induced a ground out to end the inning, as well as his outing.

Junior Jack Scrivanic tacked on an RBI single to left in the top of the fourth.
