Group 3

Raritan 4, No. 13 Freehold Twp. 1

Pepe scored three minutes into the match on a pass from Ano Azivino and Jon Luz set up the first goal by Pylarinos in the 21st. Pylarinos and Pepe scored a minute apart within the final two minutes of the first half to push the Manalapan lead to 4-0 by the intermission.

Travish Butash pushed the lead to 5-0 in the 45th minute and Dylan Friedman capped the Manalapan scoring in the 70th off a pass from Noah Ottenheimer.

Braves goalkeeper Matteo Paolillo came out of the game with a clean sheet before Nate Stryker got Brick Memorial on the board with a goal in the 75th.

Anthony Cano scored the first and final Monmouth goals and the Falcons (2-4) pulled away for a win over the Huskies (4-3) that sends them through to the SCT knockout stage.

Nico Skeete accounted for the Matawan goal.

Toms River South 4, Henry Hudson 0

Kenny Caruso scored a first-half hat trick and the Indians (2-1-2) rolled to a win over the Admirals (1-6) to clinch a spot in the SCT bracket.

Caden Langen drew a foul inside the 18-yard box to set up a penalty by Caruso that opened the scoring, then assisted Caruso's second goal. Caruso completed the hat trick by finishing a rebound following a free kick by Brody Robillard.

Regular Season


No. 16 Long Branch 2, No. 14 Rumson-Fair Haven 1 (OT)

Senior Wyatt Vicente ripped a cross off a Rumson defender and into the goal during the eighth minute of overtime and the Green Wave (5-2-1) rallied for a thrilling win over the Bulldogs (5-2-1).

Senior Chris Garcia Lopez scored the tying goal in the 79th minute off a pass from junior Anthony Hernandez, then played a key role in the winning sequence. Garcia Lopez settled a long pass from the back and slipped the ball through to Vicente running up the left flank.

With plenty of space to send a cross, Vicente -- who is the cousin of Rumson-Fair Haven head coach Jeff Soares -- hammered a solid cross to the near post that a Rumson defender knocked inside the post while trying to clear it away.

Rumson did not take the 1-0 lead until the 73rd minute, when Luke D'Angelo headed in a long throw.
