OIB Orthopaedics Shore Conference Soccer Saturday Scoreboard, 10/22/22
Shore Conference Tournament
At Memorial Field, Summerfield Elementary School, Neptune
(1) CBA 2, (2) Howell 1
Juniors Cameron D'Alterio and Lawrence Mancino each scored second-half goals and the Colts survived a late push from the Rebels to win their second straight Shore Conference Tournament championship and 12th in program history.
The two sides made it to halftime without a goal on the scoreboard and CBA was the first to change that. Junior Dylan Millevoi carried the ball toward the right corner flag and veered toward the end-line before blasting a cross in the air. D'Alterio made his run to the back post and headed the ball in for the game's first goal in the 45th minute.
Early in the 61st minute, Howell attempted to clear the ball away from its goal and Mancino was ready for it coming out of the scrum. The junior outside back settled it and ripped a low, left-footed shot off the left post and in from the top of the 18-yard box to extend the CBA lead to 2-0.
Howell got back in the game in the 65th by earning corner kicks on back-to-back plays and turning the second into a goal. Senior Nick Spisak drove the ball on a line and classmate R.J. Eckelman picked it off at the near post and headed it in to cut the Colts lead to 2-1.
CBA's defense clamped down for the final 15 minutes to seal the win -- the 15th in a row for the Colts since dropping an overtime loss to Marlboro on opening day.
(1) Freehold Twp. 1, (6) Howell 0
Junior Hailey Santiago volleyed in a corner kick from classmate Ainsley Moy in the 29th minute and the Patriots held off the Rebels to capture their second straight Shore Conference Tournament championship. Freehold Township is the fourth girls program to repeat as Shore Conference Tournament champion.
Howell kept Freehold Township off the board for the first 28 minutes, with the Patriots missing out on a potential goal by sophomore Gaby Parker that was waved off for offsides.
In the 29th, however, Freehold Township earned a corner kick and Moy served it to the back post. The Howell defense lost track of Santiago, who got off a clean volley for the finish.
Howell applied its heaviest pressure on the Freehold Township goal during the first 10 minutes of the second half, but Patriots sophomore goalkeeper Ashley Moore stood her ground and senior center back Gabby Koluch was quick to shut down the majority of Howell's runs.
Koluch also hit the crossbar twice, which was one of four crossbars hit by the Patriots. Senior Kayla Wong hit the bar on the disallowed Parker goal when Howell goalkeeper Madison Smith parried the shot off the middle of the bar. Moy also hit the crossbar on a 20-yard strike in the 64th minute.
