Dominate Middletown 7-0

LAKEWOOD, NJ – The Jersey Shore Boca men’s U23 routed the Middletown Celtic (NJ) 7-0 at the John Patrick Sports Complex Tuesday night in a Mid-Atlantic Summer Showcase League game.

With the win, Boca improves to 3-0-2 and moves into second place in the overall U23 MSSL league standings with 11 points, one point behind league leading Hillsborough SC (4-0-0 and 12 points) while Middletown falls to 1-3-1 and moves down into fifteenth place with 4 points on the season.

Long time Jersey Shore Boca veteran and former Toms River North HS and Ocean County College standout Jason Mancuso erupted for five goals striking in the 18th, 20th, 22nd, 66th and 75th minutes, the first of which came on a converted penalty kick attempt.

Mancuso, who will attend York College of Pennsylvania in September with one year of NCAA eligibility remaining, has now scored ten goals over the last three games for Boca.

Boca also received goals from two other former Mariner standouts, Mark Schmiegel in the 35th minute and Butch Huff in the 58th minute. Schmiegel, a junior at Bucknell University in the fall, also assisted on two goals while Huff, a sophomore at Richard Stockton College, recorded the assist on Schmiegel’s goal.

Boca’s Justin McGrath, a standout senior midfielder and All-American candidate at Seton Hall University also made his presence felt as he returned to Boca’s starting eleven after missing the first two weeks of action and assisted on two of Mancuso’s goals and on Huff’s single strike.

Keeper Brett Axelrod recorded his first shut-out of the season in goal for Boca.

Boca will face Hillsborough in a regular MSSL league game on Sunday, June 24 at 12:00 noon at the Hillsborough Municipal Complex.
