We kick off a new week with some great games all around the state!

Kearny 3 St. Peter’s Prep 2 | Boys

Meet the Kardinals – the newest owners of the longest unbeaten streak in New Jersey high school soccer. Kearny (5-0) extended its unbeaten streak to 23 consecutive games in a hard-fought HCIAL matchup against St. Peters’ Prep (4-2). Johan Baez, Alejandro Alvarado and Benji Silva all scored for Kearny while Alex Cruz made 10 saves in the win.

Mainland 0 Ocean City 0 (2OT) | Girls

The Mustangs and Red Raiders played four times in 2021, splitting 2-2. It looks like there’s no separating these rivals in 2022 either, as they played to a double overtime scoreless draw. Genevieve Morrison was outstanding in net for Mainland (1-3-1), making a number of diving saves. Tori Vliet earned a clean sheet in goal for Ocean City (4-1).
