Enjoy! No. 2 Ridgewood 12 No. 1 Moorestown 8 – Girls The No. 1 and No. 2 Girls Lacrosse teams in the state of New Jersey met on Wednesday night for the first time since the T of C final round last season, in which the Moorestown Quakers came out on top. However, Wednesday night called for a different victor. The Maroons put in eight goals in just the first half, as the Quakers put in just two. Notre Dame commit, Jackie Wolak, was the star for Ridgewood tonight, scoring three goals and two assists. Lafayette commit, Marley Scala, Villanova commit, Keely Bennett, and Lehigh commit, Annie McCarthy, each scored two goals.

No. 4 Ridge 11 Bridgewater-Raritan 2 – Boys A packed crowed gathered in Bridgewater as the Panthers hosted No. 4 Ridge for a Skyland Conference cross division showdown. Both teams came out hitting hard to keep the game scoreless after one quarter. In the second Ridge got to work thanks to goals from Sean Everson and Jake Hoffman. That would prove to be what the Red Devils needed as they would eventually go up 8-1 entering the fourth. Everson finished a pair of scores while Hoffman had four goals on the day.

Frankie Monte, Troy Santise and Ryan Stefanik all scored twice in this game. JSZ’s Jay Cook has the highlights from Montvale: No. 18 Ocean City 11 Mainland 6 – Boys The Red Raiders earned the inside track toward a Cape Atlantic League title with a win over their rivals.
