Toms River East 8 Jackson Memorial 5 | Ocean County Tournament Final

The Raiders had their rally caps on late as they put together a four run sixth inning to bring home their first OCT championship since 2007. Matt Ferrara gave East the lead with a 2 RBI double then Gavin Toth put things away with a two-run home run. Toth earned the win on the mound for top-seeded Toms River East (15-3), and was named the tournament MVP. Tyler Huzzy roped a 3 RBI double in the loss for third-seeded Jackson Memorial (10-7).

St. Peter’s Prep 4 Union City 3

The Marauders used a sixth-inning rally to spark their seventh-straight win on the diamond. Ryan Miqueli delivered a clutch two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning and then came out of the bullpen in the seventh to preserve the win with a strikeout. St. Peter’s Prep (11-7) is getting hot at just the right time – this victory all but secures the top overall seed for the Marauders in the upcoming Hudson County Tournament. Ray Stein pitched 6.2 innings and struck out 11 to earn the win. Union City (11-6) had RBI singles from Jean Luca Calderon and Guillermo Soto in the fifth inning.
