The Jersey Shore Boca men’s open team hopes to capture the New Jersey Amateur Cup tonight as it hosts the German American Kickers in the championship game at 6 p.m. at the Eastern Soccer Complex, Berkeley.

The champion will advance to the United States Adult Soccer Association Regional Tournament this spring for a chance for a berth in the USASA National Cup this summer.

Boca is 4-4-1 overall, including a 5-1 win over the Parsippany Soccer Club in the semifinal round. Boca is fifth among 10 teams in the South Group of the Garden State Soccer League Semi-Pro Elite Division.

Thomas Bannionis, Berkeley, leads Boca in scoring with eight goals. He was named the team’s Most Valuable Player as a forward.

Jamie Nelson, a former Toms River High School North and The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey player, is second with five goals. The team’s player-coaches are Ryan Applegate, formerly of Central Regional, and ex-Toms River East player Christian Treney.

Also making contributions are former Central and Monmouth University player John Carozza, ex-Monsignor Donovan player Mike McCullion, ex-East player Brian Hutterman, former Lacey player Jim Dellapietro, former North player Chris Auriano, ex-St. Raymond’s player Moses Mingle and former East player Eddie Decker.

New additions who have made their presence felt are Justin Fuccello, Brick; Frank Guacdascione, Manchester; and Oren Solon, Berkeley. Other newcomers are ex-Toms River South player Don Gray, former Donovan player Ken Masuhr and former Monmouth players Art Shatterwhite and Kevin Hartwyk.
