Shore Conference Tournament


At Summerfield Elementary School, Neptune

(2) Howell 2, (3) Toms River North 1

Junior Nick Turturro scored a goal in the first half and assisted one in the second before the Howell defense held strong in the final minutes to help the Rebels upend the Mariners and advance to the SCT championship game for the second consecutive season.

Turturro broke a scoreless deadlock in the 23rd minute. He received a pass over the midfield from classmate Tye Maser, carried a defender to the left side of the box, cut the ball back and slipped a right-footed shot to the far lower-right corner of the goal.

The next successful scoring chance came near the end of the end of the 74th minute on a free kick from 23 yards out on the right side. Turturro curled a left-footed shot that a crashing Bryce Ocholla flicked with his head, directing it to the far side netting with 5:57 left.

Toms River North broke up the shutout just 33 seconds after Turturro's second goal. Senior Luke Montanile headed down a corner kick by junior James Homyak and knocked it in to slice the deficit back to one goal.

Toms River North played the last five minutes with 10 men after Turkan Curak picked up his second red card.

(1) CBA 1, (12) Middletown North 0

Christian DeOliveira headed in a ball into the box from fellow defender Sean Galvin in the first half and the Colts defense made it stand up in a win over Middletown North that sends CBA to its third straight SCT final.

Middletown North cleared the ball out of its own box following a CBA corner kick, but Galvin settled it 35 yards away from the goal. After surveying the field, Galvin spotted DeOliveira on the right side of the box and sent a diagonal pass from the air from the opposite side of the field.

DeOliveira lined up a clean header and buried it into the far left corner of the goal.

CBA's defense kept Middletown North quiet all game long, with the Lions' only chance coming in the third minute of the second half. Leading scorer Josiah Stepney got a step on his defender and got off a clean shot from 10 yards away, but his strike skipped wide of the near right post.

Middletown North goalkeeper Landon Terrell kept the CBA lead at 1-0 with four key saves, including one on a breakaway attempt by CBA leading scorer Dylan Millevoi.

For the second straight year, CBA will take on No. 2 Howell in the SCT championship game, which will kick off at 3 p.m. Saturday in Neptune with CBA in search of its third straight championship.
