It’s state championship Sunday at Kean University for Non-Public soccer.  JSZ brings you highlights and post-game reaction from four games.

CBA 2 Delbarton 1 (2 OT) – Non-Public Boys “A” State Final

Luke Pascarella delivered a magical right foot shot from 33-yards out with :19 seconds left in double overtime to give CBA a stunning win over the #1 ranked team in the state.  The Green Wave scored four minutes into the championship game courtesy of Brendan McSorley and led 1-0 at the half.  The game took a dramatic turn following a double yellow card on Delbarton and the Green Wave played the final 29 minutes a man down.  The Colts drew even with 5:09 to go thanks to an upper 90 missle from James Hempstead to force overtime.  Pascarella’s golden goal was a thing of beauty as you’ll see in the highlights.  JSZ breaks it all down and talks to Pascarella in a fantastic and poignant interview:
