East Brunswick once again proved they they are the most dominant team in the Greater Middlesex County Conference. Old Bridge put up a great effort and was able to threaten East Brunswick numerous times, especially in the first half. The game was tied at zero well into the second half, but with about 6 minutes left in the game, Sydney Rosa of East Brunswick once again proved that they are the ‘best of the best’ and scored the only goal of the game kicking the ball directly at goalie Nicole Carbone’s legs. The ball bounced off and rolled slowly into the goal just out of reach of the goalie. Old Bridge was not able to mount any serious threat as the enthusiastic Bears didn’t let up a bit and continued to threaten Old Bridge until the game ended.

Congratulations to the whole team: Coach Kevin Brady

GMC TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP – Rescheduled to Sun. Nov 9th at 11AM – at South Brunswick High School

Old Bridge vs. East Brunswick

Each of these teams pulled off upsets in their semifinals matchup to advance for the opportunity to stake a claim as the best team in the GMC. Perennial power East Brunswick is right back to where they’ve been so many times before – the game that decides who has bragging rights in this conference. Considering their 13-6-1 record and victory over the top seed in the tournament, East Brunswick may be the favorite heading into Saturday’s game. Leading the way for East Brunswick as their premier offensive duo is the pair of Sydney Rosa and Carla LaRocca, though a major contribution from Kaitlyn Roughan on a corner kick goal in East Brunswick’s semifinal win over South Brunswick appears to make their offensive attack even more dangerous and dynamic. Katrina Nguyen-Demary is also one of the more underrated players in the GMC, as her dogged approach on the field opens up so much and maintains many offensive opportunities for East Brunswick.

EAST BRUNSWICK – Time was a ticking on the East Brunswick High girls soccer team not just to deliver coach Kevin Brady his 300th win, but to advance in the Greater Middlesex Conference tournament.

But senior forward Sydney Rosa came through with her 17th goal in the 60th minute of the game defending county champs went on to beat Monroe 1-0 at Dolan Field.

The scene thereafter was about celebrating a popular coach, who didn’t talk much about reaching the milestone with his team. He talked to them in the post-game huddle about what they had done well, and what needed to be done better. When one of his players mentioned No. 300 Brady got back to the basics.

via East Brunswick's girls soccer team delivers another milestone for Kevin Brady.

The Knights defeated East Brunswick, 3-1, Thursday on goals from Jasmine Grossman, Samantha Potts and Breanna Jacinto.

After going down 1-0 on a goal from East Brunswick’s Carla LaRocca, Old Bridge was able to score two goals in the span of five minutes. Grossman opened the scoring with a mishit volley that looped over East Brunswick keeper Alex Kalafor. Potts followed that up with a brilliant one-touch chip to beat Kalafor high once again on a nice through ball from Alexis Suarez.

“The ball came to me so I headed it back to Alexis and she played a really good ball above the defender’s head and I ran right onto it and got my first touch right over the goalie,” said Potts.

Jacinto added to the lead early in the second half with another ball up high and over Kalafor. The Knights were able to hold off a bevy of chances from the Bears to secure the win.

A big part of that effort was goalie Nicole Carbone who stopped 12 shots in the victory. She stood up to the barrage of shots and was able to stop the high shot attempts, which was something she was expecting after the first game between the two teams. East Brunswick won that contest 4-0.

“I was definitely expecting that. When we played them the first time, a lot of balls were coming over the top, so I knew I would have to stand a little bit off my line more,” she said .

East Brunswick kept pushing players higher up to try and come back, but its chances weren’t converted. LaRocca almost added a second goal on a tough angle shot and Sydney Rosa was making strong runs into the box.

East Brunswick coach Kevin Brady saw the opportunities as well, but nothing was working for the Bears.

“I thought we did enough to generate a second goal in the first and second half,” said Brady. “Some days it doesn’t bounce for you. It has bounced for us a lot in the past. It didn’t bounce for us today.”

The Bears fell to 8-5. Brady saw the effort and the chances, but will look to improve as the Bears prepare for the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament. He also credited Old Bridge with simply playing a good game.

via Old Bridge scores three straight goals to defeat East Brunswick.
