Allentown 11 Seneca 6 – Boys – South Group 2 Quarterfinal
Fifth seed Allentown advanced to the South Group 2 Semifinals with an 11-6 victory over 13th-seeded Seneca. The Red Birds got some help from Jared Jordan early who had a hat trick in the first period to give them a 7-1 lead. Towards the end of the second and throughout the third quarter, Seneca started mounting a comeback to cut it to just 9-6 heading into the fourth. However Jared Jordan along with Clayton Moench tacked on a pair scores to keep the game out of reach for the Eagles. Moench and Peter Pinto ended the day with hat tricks while Jared Jordan had four goals including his 100th career goal. Allentown will face the winner of #8 Holmdel and #1 Rumson-Fair Haven in the semifinals on 5/22. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez has the highlights:
