No. 7 Holmdel 2, No. 3 Ocean 1

Junior Jaime Palmer and senior Colin Hynes each scored in the first half and the Hornets held off an Ocean push to equalize to score a win over the Spartans.

Palmer gathered the ball off a short throw-in on the left side of the field and struck a bold shot that he tucked into the far right side netting for a 1-0 Holmdel lead in the seventh minute.

In the 30th minute, Hynes made a diagonal run from right to left, took a pass from junior Frankie Busco and slipped another shot that tickled the far-side netting, this time putting Holmdel ahead, 2-0.

Palmer nearly extended the lead to 3-0 early in the second half with a header that sailed just clear of the crossbar.

After dodging a three-goal deficit, Ocean came alive and cut its deficit in half. Sophomore Noor Eraky pounced on an attempted clearance just beyond the top of the 18-yard box and slammed a shot that sneaked inside the left post for Ocean's first and only goal.
