The Raiders let their guard down after the goal and Tim Foley scored Colts Neck's first goal 27 seconds after Kansu's goal.

(7) Ocean 1, (10) Manalapan 1 - Ocean advances on penalties, 4-1

Marc Gleason headed in a ball from Luciano Ibarra for the equalizer in the 71st minute and goalkeeper Zach Frabizio saved two Manalapan attempts during the shootout as the Spartans rallied to foil the Braves on penalty kicks.

Ocean moves on to the SCT quarterfinals to face No. 2 Howell, which will be Ocean's first venture into the SCT quarterfinals since winning the tournament in 2018. Tuesday's result also avenges a shootout loss to Manalapan in the 2021 round of 16.

Manalapan jumped on top midway through the first half, when Jon Luz ran on to a well-paced through-ball from Tyler Pylarinos and finished for a 1-0 Braves lead. Pylarinos was also the lone shooter to convert for Manalapan during the round of penalties.

(2) Howell 4, (15) Manasquan 2

Nick Turturro scored two goals and assisted another to spark the Rebels to a win over the Warriors, punching their ticket to a second straight SCT quarterfinal appearance.

Turturro set up the first goal of the game with a cross to the front of the goal, where Kam Brown slid in for the finish in the 15th minute.

Turturro knocked in a right-footed volley off a cross from Tye Maser in the 28th and Tyler Borenstein buried a direct kick to extend the lead to 3-0 in the 33rd.

Within a minute of Borenstein's first goal, Manasquan jumped on the board on a goal by Brandon Kunz. Cristian Gonzalez then tightened things up by nailing a free kick of his own two minutes into the second half.

Turturro stopped the Manasquan momentum in the 72nd, when he scored with his left foot off a cross from John Fiorillo for his second goal of the match.

Howell will host No. 7 Ocean in the SCT quarterfinals on either Friday or Saturday.

(8) Marlboro 0, (9) Long Branch 0 - Marlboro advances on penalties, 3-2

Arnav Bitla saved three shots during the shootout round and the Mustangs prevailed on penalties after a scoreless battle with the Green Wave.

The turning point of the shootout came when Renee Sanchez appeared to convert Long Branch's second attempt to seemingly put the Green Wave ahead, 2-0. The official near the spot, however, ruled that Sanchez came to a full stop on his approach and did not count the conversion. Sanchez re-kicked, tried the same spot, and Bitla beat him to the spot for the save.

Marlboro got three straight conversions from Jake Cagnina, Trevor Barrett and Wyatt Oechsner to set Bitla up for the game-clinching save on Long Branch's fifth and final attempt. After making that first save, Arnav stopped two of the final three Long Branch attempts, with Nick Ribiero and Wyatt Vicente burying their kicks for the Green Wave.

Marlboro will travel to play top-seeded CBA in the SCT quarterfinals on either Friday or Saturday -- a rematch of an opening-day match won by CBA on a goal in the final two minutes.
