Sectional final scores

Posted in Uncategorized by mattmanley on November 13, 2009

For those looking for video highlights tonight and tomorrow morning, I apologize because I screwed up the TRN video. Mr. Doug Higgins was kind enough to give me a DVD of the game, but I’m having trouble with it on my laptop. I’m going to play around with that video, as well as the TRS video, on Saturday ( I know a few people with MACs, which might solve the problem) so check back on Sunday or Monday for the highlights of those games, both of which were instant classics in the realm of the Shore Conference. The game stories will be up as usual because last I checked, my writing is not broken.

TRN 2, Rancocas Valley 1,OT

Rafael Vergara scored in the third minute of overtime to stun Rancocas Valley and give Toms River North its first sectional title since 2005.  Tom Defino sent a through ball to Vergara who beat charging keeper Jake Kapulskey to it and slid it to the open net for the win.

Tyler Higgins scored on a cross from Vergara in the 6th to put North up 1-0. Rancocas tied it on a header off a corner kick in the 63rd.

Delran 1, Raritan 0, Delran wins shootout 5-4

Princeton 2, Freehold 0

TRS 3, Lenape 2, OT

John Nogiewich scored the game-tying goal with eight seconds left in regulation, then scored the game-winner from 14 yards out four minutes into overtime as TR South erased a 2-0 deficit in the final 14 minutes of regulation to capture its first sectional title since 1991. It’s believed its the first sectional title in any boys sport, other than baseball, at Toms River South since that 1991 sectional soccer title. The sectional title was for South Jersey Group III and Friday’s victory marks TR South’s first sectional title in Group IV. All four of the Indians’ wins during the state tournament so far have come after they have trailed in the second half. The first two game-winning goals during the tournament were both in the final 30 seconds and TR South beat TR East with an overtime goal in the 94th minute. South will play TR North for the third time this year for a spot in the state final.
