We’ve got two great games from New Jersey girls high school soccer thanks to our great partners. The OceanFirst Bank Game of the Week features Holmdel and Red Bank Catholic in a top-10 showdown from the Shore Conference plus we’ve got Hopewell Valley and Steinert girls battling in Mercer County
Holmdel 1 Red Bank Catholic 0 | Girls
Taylor Bielan’s goal in the 61st minute off a midfield feed from Izzy Dematos was the only goal of the game to give Holmdel the Shore Conference’s “A” Central division title. The Hornets (11-0-1) ranked #3 in the state made their case for the top seed in the upcoming Shore Conference Tournament along with current #1 ranked Freehold Township. JSZ’s Rich Chrampanis has the highlights and post-match reaction from Roggy Field in Holmdel:
Jersey Sports Zone is excited to partner with Ocean First Bank to bring you a Game of the Week in both boys and girls sports all year long. Each week, we’ll pick a boys and girls game in different sports involving teams located near Ocean First Bank locations and provide highlights and post-game reaction to showcase great action from around the state. Thanks to Ocean First Bank for shining the spotlight on great high school athletes from their hometowns!
Hopewell Valley 1 Steinert 1 | Girls
The much anticipated Colonial Valley Conference Girls Soccer matchup between Hopewell Valley (10-1-2) and Steinert (10-1-1) ended in a 1-1 tie. Mia Garafolo scored the game’s first goal with eight minutes left in the first half to give Steinert a 1-0 lead at the break. Freshman Charlotte Barnes answered back for Hopewell in the opening 12 minutes of the second with a goal to tie the game at 1-1. The match would stay knotted until the end of regulation and after 100 minutes a winner still could not be determined. The matchup is a possible preview for the upcoming Mercer County Tournament. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez has the highlights from Pennington:
