All-South Jersey Soccer Teams Honored

All-South Jersey Soccer Teams Honored
In the first week of January, the South Jersey Soccer Coaches Association honored the many talented players from the high school season with its all-South Jersey team.
The coaches vote on these teams. In addition to first, second and third teams, there was a player of the year (POY) at each position.
Eastern, which won the South Jersey Group 4 championship, had three such players of the year, forward Riley Tiernan, midfielder Kelli McGroarty and defender Sara Brocious, Eastern, Sr. (POY).
McGroarty, had 40 goals while Tiernan added 33 for the high-scoring Vikings.
Gabe Paz, who led Oakcrest to the Cape Atlantic League championship, heads up the boys’ all-South Jersey team. He led the Falcons with 27 goals and was named the boys POY at forward.
Besides being sectional champions, Delran, St. Augustine and Moorestown Friends were state runners-ups.
In girls’ soccer, Ocean City won the Group 3 state title, the first for the program. Junior Faith Slimmer, a first-team selection at forward, had 35 goals for the Red Raiders.
