A wet Easter weekend was not enough to stop the top lacrosse programs in the Garden State from hitting the field. Stay tuned throughout the night as JSZ brings you highlights from five games across the state!
No. 4 Delbarton 15 No. 8 Summit 5 – Boys
After falling to Seton Hall Prep in a tough loss earlier this month, it seems Delbarton is now back on track. C.J. Kirst and Under Armour All-American Mikey Long put together career games as Delbarton topped the Hilltoppers in a rematch of last season’s Tournament of Champions finale. JSZ’s Jay Cook has the highlights from Morristown:
No. 2 Seton Hall Prep 12 No. 7 Hunterdon Central 4 – Boys
Second ranked Seton Hall Prep remains undefeated in 2019 following an impressive 12-4 win over No. 7 Hunterdon Central. The Pirates trailed for all about two and half minutes in the first quarter before unleashing a stifling offense that would eventually make it 8-3 at halftime. In the second act a change at goalie saw Todd Carolonza end the day with one goal allowed and seven saves. UMass commit Luke Blanc and University of Virginia bound Connell Kumar both found net three times. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez has the highlights:
No. 11 Lenape 12 No. 12 Shawnee 10 – Boys
The Indians raced out to an 8-2 halftime lead, before holding off a furious Renegades rally down the stretch. Mason Bregman and Luke Cole each scored four goals in the win. Bryce Reece added two goals for Lenape. Gavyn Wilson scored four goals for Shawnee in the loss, while Chris Lyons added three. JSZ’s Mike Frankel has the highlights from this Olympic Conference rivalry game:
Rumson-Fair Haven 5 No. 13 Moorestown 4 (2OT) – Boys
Drew Frankel’s low liner shot with 22 seconds to go in double overtime gives Rumson-Fair Haven a big win outside the Shore Conference. The game featured outstanding goaltending by the Quakers Jack Avis and RFH’s Ryan Croddick. Connor McDonough scored in the final minute of regulation for Moorestown to force overtime. Frankel’s game-winner came with RFH a man up. Watch the highlights from a fantastic showdown on the Jersey Shore:
