NJSIAA Tournament

Opening Round

South Jersey Non-Public A

(9) St. John Vianney 14, (8) Donovan Catholic 0 (6 Innings)

Sophomore Jacob Ramirez hit a three-run home run in the top of the first inning and freshman Rocko Brzezniak and senior Luciano Fabrizzi each went deep during St. John Vianney's eight-run sixth inning that secured a Lancers win over the Griffins.

Brzezniak's two-run home run to center field was his seventh home run of the season. Fabrizzi followed later in the inning with a three-run shot to left that capped a four-hit, four-RBI day for the senior third baseman.

St. John Vianney will travel to play No. 1 seed St. Augustin Friday in the South Non-Public A quarterfinals.
