The 2021 boys state finals are here! Well, some of them, at least. Weather wreaked havoc around the state Wednesday night but we have four group championship games from three different host sites. Enjoy the highlights with the JSZ All-Access Pass!

Don Bosco 11 Delbarton 8 | Non-Public A

It may have taken some extra time, but Don Bosco once played very much like the No. 1 team in New Jersey again. Delbarton, the reigning Non-Public A champions, came in playing their best lacrosse of the year and actually lead 6-4 when a 45-minute weather delay hit during halftime. The Ironmen used the extended break to their advantage and rattled off five unanswered goals in the second half to take the lead and never look back. Max Thomas led the way with four goals while Koleton Marquis had three points (two goals, one assist). The win gave Don Bosco its second Non-Public A championship in program history.

Summit 9 Rumson-Fair Haven 6 | Group 2

A battle of undefeated juggernauts took centerstage in the Group 2 state final and did not disappoint. Summit used quick, close shots to build a 5-1 lead on RFH in the first half before a one-hour rain delay paused the action. The Bulldogs rallied to make it a two-goal game in the third quarter, but Summit’s gritty play helped pack on some insurance late. It’s the third straight Group 2 title for the Hilltoppers.

Mountain Lakes 7 Manasquan | Group 1

Defending 2019 Tournament of Champions winners Mountain Lakes (17-1) defeated Manasquan (17-4) to capture their third straight Group 1 title. Manasquan would take a 3-1 lead in the first quarter but Mountain Lakes rallied on scores from Reid Tietjen and Cade Schuckman to eventually take their first lead in the third quarter. Tietjen had two goals while Schuckman gets the hat trick.

Pingry 11 Montclair Kimberly Academy 7 | Non-Public B

Harrison Josloff scored five goals and Tommy Robertozzi added a hat trick to pace the Big Blue to the 6th state championship in school history. The game was delayed three hours by lightning along the Jersey Shore. Pingry busted open a 1-1 game at the end of one quarter with six goals in the second.
