Princeton took a late 2 goal lead and thanks to the heroics of Danielle Losier who ended the day with 5 goals, she tied it up and then helped Notre Dame take the lead in the final minutes to come away with the victory. #8. Allentown 7 Notre Dame 3 The match up between the Colonial Valley’s two Top 20 did not disappoint as the first half of Allentown and Notre Dame was a defensive battle that left us knotted up 1-1 at halftime.

Lancers win Monmouth 7 on 7 Tournament

In the closing seconds with the game tied St. Joseph Prep of Philladelphia transfer CJ Duell hits fellow newcomer Kavon Chambers of Manchester Twp. to help SJV walk away with a 20-14 victory.

LA Rams linebacker gives back at Red Bank Regional
Garrett Sickels returned to his high school alma mater to give the Red Bank Regional defensive line a 30-minute tutorial on technique and what it takes to get to the quarterback. The 2012 RBR graduate was a US Army All-American during his high school days and went on to Penn State where he had 6.5 sacks and 47 tackles in his redshirt junior campaign earning defensive MVP honors in 2016. Sickels chose to enter the 2017 NFL Draft over returning to Happy Valley as a redshirt senior. Many were surprised when the Nittany Lions defensive end was not drafted. What followed was a roller coaster trip on NFL practice squads. After stints with the Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns, Sickels landed on his third practice squad in Los Angeles. Switching from a 4-3 defensive end to an outside linebacker, Sickels was activated for the Rams final regular season game. He was re-signed by Los Angeles for 2018 and enters training camp looking to contribute to the Rams linebacking corps. Thanks to head coach Nick Giglio and Garrett, JSZ gets an inside look of a young NFL player inspiring high school players with great instruction and the mindset it takes to succeed on and off the football field: Thanks to Ryser’s Landscape Supply for sponsoring our Red Bank Regional coverage on Jersey Sports Zone

RBR stuns Long Branch in OT on Thanksgiving Eve
Red Bank Regional 21 Long Branch 20 (OT) Nigel Mitchell had two TD runs including the game-winner in overtime as the Bucs stun the Green Wave in the 95th meeting between the two schools during the Thanksgiving holiday. Makai Mickens had a 21 yard TD run, an interception and a blocked extra point in overtime. Long Branch played from behind the entire game, scoring late in the first half to draw even 7-7 and then scoring with under four minutes to go on a Jermaine Corbett 3 yard TD run to tie the game at 14 and force overtime. The Green Wave got the ball first in OT and La’Qym Morris scored from six yards out, but Mickens was able to block the extra point. It set the stage for Mitchell to cash in from 11 yards out and Chris Maida boot the extra point to seal the upset win. It was sweet redemption for Red Bank Regional who lost two previous overtime games in 2017 including a missed extra point in a heartbreaking loss to Monmouth Regional. Long Branch drops to 8-3 and now puts their focus on a sectional championship game next week with Freehold Boro at Rutgers.
