Manasquan 8 Rumson-Fair Haven 7
The Shore Conference’s top two teams played a fantastic championship game. Manasquan’s Joe Tonkovich scored the game winner just ten seconds after Charlie Curran tied the game at seven for Rumson-Fair Haven. James Pendergist picked up a loose ball after a faceoff and triggered a marvelous passing sequence. Jarrett Birch fed Canyon Birch who passed over to Tankovich who’s backhand from close range proved to be the difference. RFH raced out to a 3-0 lead early, but Manasquan took a 5-4 lead at the half thanks to a Devan Carroll goal with :16 seconds to go in the second. RFH had a 6-5 lead after three quarters before the Warriors scored two straight goals setting the stage for crunch time. Carroll’s third goal of the game made it 7-7. RFH had a chance to force overtime, but Alex Werner’s shot in the final seconds hit the post.
