Shore Conference Tournament

Opening Round

(12) Middletown North 5, (21) Monmouth 0

Ryan Barnao scored two goals and the Lions rolled to a first-round win over the Falcons, earning them a trip to play at No. 5 Southern Wednesday in the round of 16.

Cam DelGrosso scored a goal and chipped in an assist, while Aiden Dinella and Paul Que accounted for the other two Middletown North goals. Josiah Stepney also dished out two assists in the win.

(15) Manasquan 5, (18) Point Boro 1

Brandon Kunz, Cristian Gonzalez and Lucas Farkas each notched a goal and an assist and the Warriors rumbled to a win over the Panthers to advance to the SCT round of 16 Wednesday at No. 2 Howell.

Kunz opened the scoring three minutes into the match off a flick from Griffin Linstra and Farkas made it 2-0 in the 18th off a set-up from Gonzalez. Farkas then found younger brother, Cruz Farkas, in the 26th for a 3-0 lead that Manasquan carried into halftime.

Gonzalez extended the lead to 4-0 in the 46th off a feed from Kunz and Luke Roy made it five unanswered goals when he intercepted a pass in the 52nd and took it all the way in for the finish.

(16) Jackson Memorial 3, (17) Wall 1

Peyton Collimore scored 34 seconds into the match and Shaan Moon scored 3:41 into the second half to break a 1-1 tie and the Jaguars march past the Crimson Knights and into the round of 16 Wednesday at top-seeded CBA.

Collimore opened the scoring by taking a pass from Rob Calamia, dribbling past a defender and burying a shot to the far left corner of the goal.

Wall pulled even in the 25th on a 19-yard free-kick blasted by Bo Pepe and the two teams entered the half tied on the scoreboard and even in the run of play.

Jackson Memorial dominated the second half, starting with the goal by Moon off a feed from John Penswater in the 44th minute. Less than three minutes later, Tyler Korinchak ran down a long pass out of the back by Bryson Petrina, touched the ball past Wall goalkeeper Charles Schirmer, who tripped Korinchak to set up a penalty kick.

Korinchak stepped to the penalty spot and buried the kick for a 3-1 Jackson Memorial lead that Wall did not threaten the rest of the way.

(11) Toms River South 2, (22) Jackson Liberty 0

Kenny Caruso and Brody Robillard combined on a first-half goal and Caden Langan added a goal in the 69th off a pass from Owen Beneciuk, enough to carry the Indians to a shutout win over the Lions that earns them a trip to play St. Rose in Wednesday's SCT round of 16.

Robillard dummied a free kick by Caruso that froze the Jackson Liberty goalkeeper and allowed the ball to skip into the net. Langan then knocked a bouncing ball in for a 2-0 lead and Jackson Liberty failed to convert a penalty kick in the final minute to preserve the Toms River South shutout.

(20) Toms River East 1, (13) Central 1 - TR East advances on penalties, 5-4

Goalkeeper Bobby Calvo made a diving save on a breakaway in the final 10 seconds of overtime, then saved the final two Central attempts during the penalty shootout as the Raiders won a thriller over the Golden Eagles to earn a round-of-16 trip to play No. 4 Colts Neck on Wednesday.

Calvo starred with 12 saves during the 100 minutes on the field -- none bigger than his sprawling stop on a breakaway strike by David Kroon as the final seconds of the second overtime period ticked away.

The one Calvo did not make was with 53 seconds left in regulation, when Landon Kavanaugh ran down a ball blasted out of the back and chipped it over Calvo, into the far left corner of the goal for the equalizer.

Central goalkeeper Zach Polo made the first save of the shootout when he denied Toms River East's third attempt. Central had a chance to advance on its fifth penalty attempt, but Calvo made a diving save to his right to extend the shootout.

Tommy Renkin followed by executing Toms River East's fifth penalty conversion and on the next Central attempt, Calvo again came through with a stop to end the match. Calvo accounted for one of the five Raiders conversions, along with two by Renkin and one each from Luke Bodziak and Jackson Markovitch.

Keith Swistock, Blake Crutchley, Owen Elliot and Jordan Benzon each converted for Central.

Rowen Joice gave Toms River East the lead early in the second half with a 30-yard bomb to the far right corner of the net.

(14) Middletown South 2, (19) Shore 0

Shawn McCann scored two goals in the second half and the Middletown South defense held on as the Eagles topped the Blue Devils to advance to a round-of-16 match Wednesday at No. 3 Toms River North.

McCann led a counter-attack in the 55th minute and centered it to Dylan Sibilia, who swung it along to Luke Strada on the left side of the 18-yard box. Strada unleashed a clean shot that Shore goalkeeper Kevin Barfield parried off the crossbar. McCann crashed the goal and headed the ball back into the net for the game's first goal.

Shore responded with a shot that clanged off the bottom half the crossbar and earned a penalty kick that senior Maxx Eichenbaum missed wide to the right.

After barely dodging the two Shore scoring chances, the Eagles gained some breathing room when McCann won the ball on the left side, attacked up the flank, cut the ball back and ripped a low shot to an exposed far-right side netting in the 70th minute.
