STAFFORD - The Southern Regional Baseball team defeated Jackson Liberty on Thursday in the Ocean County Tournament quarterfinals.  The Rams advance to a semifinal contest on Saturday hosting Manchester, the 10 seed.  

This is a great accomplishment for Coach Keith Cocuzza's squad because the Rams are heading to the Ocean County Tournament semifinals for first time since 1987.

Nolan Watson hit a two-run homer in the first inning and a three-run double in the second to spark the Rams towards the victory.  Senior right-hander Nick Simone pitched a two hit shutout to lead Southern.
