Shore Conference Tournament
(1) CBA 2, (8) Colts Neck 0
Junior Dimitry Corba drilled a low laser inside the far left post in the 62nd minute to break a scoreless tie and the Colts went on to beat the Cougars, advancing to the SCT semifinals for the fourth straight tournament.
Senior Jack D'Eletto added a goal in the 72nd minute off a pass from sophomore Phil Bodenski, who was part of the CBA effort to cover the absence of senior standout Will Thygeson. According to coach Tom Mulligan, Thygeson was unable to go Monday due to a hamstring injury.
CBA will play No. 13 Middletown North in the SCT semifinals Thursday at Memorial Field in Neptune.
(2) Howell 0, (7) Rumson-Fair Haven 0 (Howell advances on penalties, 5-3)
Senior R.J. Eckelman converted the last of five consecutive conversions during the shootout and the Rebels outlasted the Bulldogs to reach the SCT semifinals for the first time since 2010.
Howell senior goalkeeper Charlie Scanlon did not have to save a shot in the round of kicks due to a miss off the crossbar, but he made a huge, leaping save in the 67th minute on a 35-yard missile off the right foot of junior Liam Barnett. Junior Cole Herman picked up the shutout on the other end for Rumson.
The Rebels move on to Thursday's SCT semifinals at Memorial Field in Neptune, where they will take on No. 3 Holmdel with a spot in Saturday's championship game on the line.
(13) Middletown North 2, (12) Long Branch 2 (Midd. North advances on penalties, 5-4)
Sophomore Josiah Stepney scored the equalizer in the 75th minute off a pass from senior C.J. Crolius and the Lions made it count by hitting on five straight penalty kicks -- a recipe that sent Middletown North past the Green Wave and into the SCT semifinals for the first time since 2004.
The two teams traded goals in each half of regulation, with Middletown North senior Mike Colantino answering a Long Branch goal by Chris Garcia Lopez. Long Branch grabbed the lead back on a goal by senior Anthony Vasquez before Stepney eventually leveled the score again.
Middletown North moves on to play CBA in the second game of Thursday's SCT semifinal double-header. CBA won the regular-season meeting, 1-0, at Middletown North.
(3) Holmdel 3, (6) Marlboro 3 (Holmdel advances on penalties, 4-3)
Holmdel senior goalkeeper Ilan Golden saved two shots in a round of penalty kicks and the Hornets survived a second-half comeback by the Mustangs to advance to the SCT semifinals for the third time in the last six seasons and first time since 2018.
Golden saved Marlboro's second attempt of the shootout and after his teammates connected on their first four tries, Golden saved the last attempt by the Mustangs to close out the victory.
Holmdel jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a goal by sophomore Stephan Kapranov and took the lead into halftime. Marlboro struck quickly in the second half with an equalizer by sophomore Trevor Barrett.
In the 50th minute, senior Max Woodward scored the first of two Holmdel goals within a span of two minutes to break the tie. Kapranov then headed home the third Holmdel goal off a set-piece service from senior David Weiner.
With Holmdel looking to cruise into the semifinals, Marlboro momentarily spoiled the Hornets' plans. Junior Matt Ringel camped out on the back post on a corner kick by Barrett and headed in a flick to trim the Mustangs deficit to 3-2 in the 63rd minute.
Just 1:20 after Ringel's goal, junior Ryan Cohen lined up a bouncing ball and skipped a shot into the right side of the frame from 18 yards out to stun Holmdel with the equalizer.
Holmdel moves on to play No. 2 Howell in the SCT semifinals Thursday at Memorial Field in Neptune.
