East Brunswick Boys Soccer Shuts Out South Brunswick, 1-0

October 14, 2013 at 11:11 PM

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – The East Brunswick boys soccer team continued its dominance of Middlesex County on Monday, defeating South Brunswick, 1-0, at Jay Doyle Field.

Bears junior Kevin Walsh scored the game's lone goal in the 24th minute, leading East Brunswick to its 14th victory of the season.

“We knew it would be tough,” Bears head coach Terry McKibbin said. “South Brunswick is in second place in our division. They always come out hard.”

Both sides took their time getting settled into the game, often seeing the ball end up a step or two ahead of where it was targeted.

Just after the midway point of the half, East Brunswick sophomore Keysean Brant-Sharp drove the ball deep into the corner of the field. He then weaved a pass through the South Brunswick defense to Walsh, who ripped the ball into the right corner of the net for his ninth goal of the year.

Despite executing the goal, Walsh said he could have played the ball better from the start.

“I hesitated at first,” he said, “But I was confident in my left foot and put it in the back of the net.”

While Walsh’s tally proved to be the lone goal, the Bears had several chances in the second half to extend their lead.

South Brunswick goalkeeper made six saves in the game, stopping multiple 1-on-1 attempts in the final 40 minutes to keep his team in the game.

McKibbin thinks the team needs to convert on their chances if they are going to accomplish their ultimate goal of a state championship.

“If we’re a little sharper in the offensive zone, we had a few chances on the counter attack to put the game away,” he said. “The final pass isn’t always there. These guys will work on it and it will come.”

Ryan Goydos and Dennis Kotenko split time in net for East Brunswick, each garnishing three saves. 

The Bears return to action on Thursday when they visit conference rival Old Bridge at 4 p.m.
