We kick off the week with a pair of great soccer tournament games, thanks to our incredible sponsors. Enjoy the highlights!

Bishop Eustace 0 (4) Shawnee 0 (2) (PKs) | Girls | South Jersey Coaches Tournament Quarterfinal

After 100 minutes of scoreless soccer the Crusaders came through in the clutch, taking down the Renegades in penalty kicks to reach the semifinals of the SJ Coaches Tournament. Allie Serlenga, Mia Abbey, Olivia Falocco, and Madison Marbach all scored as 13-seed Bishop Eustace went a perfect 4-for-4 in PKs. Nikki Dedes and Julia Tepes scored in the shootout for fifth-seed Shawnee. Bishop Eustace will take on top-seed Eastern in the semifinals later this week in Cherry Hill.

Pennington 1 Notre Dame 0 | Girls | Mercer County Tournament Semifinal

(1) Pennington (13-2-2) defeated (5) Notre Dame (11-3-2) 1-0 to advance to the Mercer County Tournament Final. The Red Raiders went ahead on an early first half goal from sophomore Morgan Kotch to lead 1-0 at halftime. Despite a great day at goal from Rutgers commit Olivia Bodmer, Notre Dame was unable to score in the second half. Bodmer finished the evening with 5 saves. Pennington will face (2) Pennington (16-1-2) in the Championship on 10/28 as the Rd Raiders eye a third consecutive MCT crown. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez has the highlights:
