Delran stuns nation’s top ranked team in 2-1 thriller

Delran 2 Pennington 1

The Bears scored two goals in the final five minutes to knock off the recently named #1 team in the country by USA Today.  Pennington took a 1-0 lead in the 65th minute on a great feed from Jared Panson to Nicolas Herrerias, but Delran rallied.  Goalie Max Pinado stepped outside of the 18 on a punt, giving Delran a free kick and John Strohlein delivered a magnificent strike in the upper 90 to tie the game at one with 5:51 to go in regulation.  A red card to Pennington freshman Mani Diop put the Red Raiders a man down for the final three minutes.  It set the stage for the game winner as Dan Strohlein battled to get a shot off that hit the right post and Chris Hunt buried the rebound for the game winner.  JSZ has the highlights of a thrilling game along with post-game reaction:
