Gill St. Bernards 3 Monroe 3 | Boys
A battle between two of New Jersey’s top unbeaten teams did not disappoint Monday night, despite the fact it ended in a draw. Monroe, led by two goals from Christian Bernal, held a 3-0 lead on Gill St. Bernard’s into the second half. Micaah Garnette sparked a stretch of three goals in seven minutes to even things up. However, the match was called in the 94th minute due to darkness.
