Championship Sunday at Kean University features four exciting soccer matchups to determine who are the garden state’s best Non-Public teams. We have coverage from all four finals on Sunday. Come back throughout the night and enjoy the highlights!
Seton Hall Prep 1 St. Augustine 0 (2OT) | Boys Non-Public A Final
It took 91 minutes and a battle against one of the state’s best defensive squads, but Seton Hall Prep is state champions for the first time in a decade. A 50/50 service into the box was contested by Seton Hall Prep’s Lucas Ross early in the second half – that pass ultimately went through the keeper’s hands into the back of the net.
