It’s state championship Sunday at Kean University for Non-Public soccer. JSZ brings you highlights and post-game reaction from four games. CBA 2 Delbarton 1 (2 OT) – Non-Public Boys “A” State Final Luke Pascarella delivered a magical right foot shot from 33-yards out with :19 seconds left in double overtime to give CBA a stunning win over the #1 ranked team in the state. The Green Wave scored four minutes into the championship game courtesy of Brendan McSorley and led 1-0 at the half. The game took a dramatic turn following a double yellow card on Delbarton and the Green Wave played the final 29 minutes a man down.
