Group 3

St. Rose 6, No. 6 Manasquan 0

Senior Matt Alexis scored off a pass from Matt Dayton for the lone goal of the first half and the Purple Roses (5-1-2) exploded for five goals in the second to hammer the Warriors (5-2) and moved to the brink of securing a spot in the SCT knockout round.

Jack Tiernan scored the first of his two second-half goals in the 44th minute off a pass from Isaiah Taylor to extend the lead to 2-0, followed by goals from Taylor and Aidan Bonczek to break it open.

Tiernan scored off a punt from goalkeeper Jack Harmon to extend the lead to 5-0 and Gavin Fahy capped the scoring.


Group 5

Wall 2, St. John Vianney 1

Bo Pepe scored the equalizer in the 53rd minute and Jake Petillo delivered the game-winner in the 63rd as the Crimson Knights (4-4) rallied to top the Lancers (4-2-1) and move closer to SCT knockout round qualification.
