Top-seeded East Brunswick, No. 15 in The Star-Ledger Top 20, defeated third-seeded South Brunswick, 2-0, yesterday at Woodbridge High to capture its 13th Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament title since 1985.

The victory marked East Brunswick’s 12th shutout of the season and fourth of the GMCT. The unit, which features seniors Sean Mulhollem, Jesse Stabinsky, Joshua Barkoff and Noah Levine, did not allow a shot from inside the 18-yard box.

"We just wanted it so bad," Barkoff said. "Everyone came out on their A game, and we knew we’d have to play our best to beat the squad that was coming out with their new player. They put up a good fight, but we just kept together, kept our patience and our talking and handled it very well."

Behind those four defenders, junior goalie Dennis Kotenko finished with five saves and completed the GMCT without surrendering a goal.

Midfielder Joey Gudzak scored the game’s first goal in the 14th minute for the only goal East Brunswick needed. At the time, he was wearing No. 40 after blood from a cut on his head stained his usual No. 6 jersey. He finished wearing No. 16 with his head wrapped like a mummy.

With the game tied, 1-1, in the 64th minute, Gudzak found himself with space and the ball 25 yards from the goal. He then took a touch and sharply drove a left-footed shot upper 90.

“I’ve been playing with (Gudzak) my whole life,” defender Jesse Stabinsky said. “He’s unbelievable. He’s a superstar, and he’s been showing the whole division up.”

Gudzak, who has a verbal offer from Monmouth University, scored two goals in a 2-1 victory over Monroe and added the game’s only score when East Brunswick defeated St. Joseph (Met.), 1-0, on Sept. 9.

Those four goals have all come in big moments, and while coach Terry McKibbin expects the trend to continue, he knows he has a roster full of suitable scorers.
