It’s a busy Sunday around the state and the JSZ team brings you three great games from the Thank You Classic and the Monmouth County Tournament!
Passaic Tech 7 St. Joseph (Met.) 4 | Thank You Classic
All it took was a little bit of Twin Magic for the Bulldogs to upset a Top 20 team in the state. The Gilligan Twins – Johnny and Jace – led the way for Passaic Tech (11-3) in a huge program win over St. Joseph (Met.) (12-3). Johnny tossed a complete game with four strikeouts and also blasted a three-run homer. Jace clobbered a two-run home run in the sixth inning to put the game out of reach.
JSZ’s Jay Cook has the highlights from the Wood-Ridge Athletic Complex:
St. Joseph Academy 11 Haddonfield 1 | Thank You Classic

Mike Cirucci struck out six batters in a complete game win for St. Joseph Academy (10-1). Matt Stamm had the lone RBI of the day in the loss for Haddonfield (5-4).
