The U10 Old Bridge Rockets won their fifth straight match by defeating the Neptune Aliens 1-0, in a battle for first place Sunday in Neptune. Adam Eyerman provided the lone goal in the 15th minute, while goal tender Alejandro Diaz and fullbacks Jordan Moretti and Christian Llerena anchored the defense. This was the Rockets’ fourth game in seven days. On Monday and Friday, the Rockets swept a home series with the Sayreville Express, 7-1 and 4-2. Five goals from Adam Eyerman, two goals apiece from Richard Loeffler, Shawn Orzechowski, and one from Charles Mantione and Christian Llerena fueled the Rockets’ powerful attack. On Saturday, Richard Loeffler was on fire with three goals and two assists, while Shane Raymond and Shawn Orzechowski both chipped in a goal and an assist in the Rockets’ 5-1 win over the Marlboro Storm White in Marlboro.

Spirited play this week by Sean Safari, Steven Contreras, and Ryan Morelli also powered Old Bridge. The Rockets’ record stands at 7-1-1 for the spring season.

In a hard-fought game, the Old Bridge Warriors soccer team showed what it is made of by winning 2-1 over the Berkeley Fireballs this past Sunday. The Warriors broke their recent scoring drought to bring home the win, while dominating their opponent throughout most of the game. Only a miscue in front of the Warriors’ goal kept the Berkeley team in the game with a goal; otherwise, it was all Warriors.

The defense of Hursh Vasant, Liem Nguyen, Rich Einwechter, Jonathan Breen and David Abrams played an outstanding match, blunting the opponents’ attack and bringing the counterattack. In the midfield, Kevin Reseter, Tony Pahumi and Khaled Issa put together a near-perfect blend of defense and offensive play to keep possession. Midfield wings Mike Joilibois, TJ Glynn and Colton Gerdon virtually owned the touchlines all game and spread the opposing defense across the field. Colton also served as a forward, with Dan Albrecht and Dan DiLeonardo pushing the attack and keeping the opposing defense back in their 18-yard box most of the match. Goalkeeper Philip DiMauro closed down most of the scoring opportunities of Berkeley and came out of the box several times to clear the ball for the defense. Goals were scored by Dan Albrecht and Colton Gerdon with assists coming from Mike Joilibois and Dan Albrecht. Special credit goes to both Khaled, who is playing with a broken hand, and TJ, playing with a hamstring injury. Both players have fought past these injuries all season long.
