State Finals

At Shore Regional

Group 4 - Bridgewater-Raritan 8, Southern 6 (FINAL)

Southern drops NJSIAA Group 4 Final to Bridgewater-Raritan

WEST LONG BRANCH – As one of the most successful boys lacrosse programs in Shore Conference history, Southern Regional was seeking an exclamation point to add to the team’s rich history.

The Rams have 10 Class A South division championships, they’ve earned one Shore Conference Tournament title and they’ve amassed four NJSIAA South Group 4 trophies.

But their elusive goal of winning an NJSIAA Group 4 State Title was denied by a tough Bridgewater-Raritan program, which was facing a two-goal deficit late in the third quarter at Robert E. Feeney field at Shore Regional High School.

However, the Panthers rallied and scored four unanswered goals for an 8-6 win over the Rams to snag the Group 4 trophy for bus ride home.

A tough ending for Southern

“We had a couple bad clears in the last five minutes, which really hurt us. That little minute and a half stretch to close the third quarter, up by two goals with a lot of momentum and we let them get two goals in that last minute and a half to get the momentum back,” Southern Regional coach John Pampalone said. “And we started the fourth quarter with a really long possession. And we had some good shots. We couldn’t find the back of the net. And they are a high-powered team and you knew they were going to find the back of the net eventually. We couldn’t match them in the fourth quarter.”

Southern senior attack Jack Kolbe (two goals) and senior attack Ryan Sininsky (three goals, one assist) had accounted for the first three goals of the third quarter. Kolbe registered a successful shot with 8:39 left, which tied the game at 4-4. Sininsky followed with consecutive goals with 5:07 left and with 4:04 remaining in the third quarter.

A rally that led to a championship

But Bridgewater-Raritan started a furious rally, which resulted in a game-breaking, four-goal run.

Panthers junior midfielder Colin Kurdyla (two goals, three assists) started the rally with his goal with 48 seconds left and then junior attack Tommy Tremarco (two goals) got into the action with a goal with 9.8 seconds left. The Panthers had neutralized Southern’s momentum in less than a minute of play.

“I couldn’t be more proud of these guys. Obviously this was a very tough loss for us,” Pampalone said. “Getting this close, I feel like I’ve been saying this for the fourth time, and it is kind of getting hard, we continue to close the gap and get closer and closer and hopefully one of these years we can knock the door down and finally win this thing. But I couldn’t be prouder of the fight and the commitment of these guys this year.”

Senior leadership elevated Southern again

Southern’s senior class brought the program back into the postseason headlines with a 46-13 record over the last four years and with back-to-back NJSIAA South Group 4 titles.

“It is a shame that their (the seniors) careers were cut short by a year. They really brought us back. We were on top and we didn’t fall that far off,” Pampalone said. “We missed a lot of title games…and they really brought us back to playing big games again and to big moments and getting us back to championship (games). I couldn’t say more about them. They will certainly be missed.”
