Colbert twins spark Patriots to sectional championship

Freehold Township 2 East Brunswick 1 (OT) – Central Jersey Group 4 Finals

Trailing 1-0 and with the season on the line, the Colbert twins rally Freehold Township into the state semifinals.  East Brunswick took a 1-0 lead on an Alyna Negron goal in the second half.   Bears keeper Lauren Krinsky, a University of Delaware commit, made a number of stellar saves, but the Patriots broke through as Jasmine’s shot off a rebound tied the game with just under three minutes to go.  In overtime it was Jada Colbert playing the role of hero with the golden goal.  JSZ’s Bryan DeNovellis has all the highlights and post-match reaction from an outstanding game at Howell High School:
