South Jersey Soccer Coaches Association names the best of the best

The South Jersey Soccer Coaches Association honored its All-South Jersey boys’ and girls’ teams last week. It was evident how much talent there is, not just in the senior class, but also the underclassmen. 

The coaches vote for first, second and third-team all-South Jersey. 

For instance the boys’ forward player of the year was Delran sophomore Drew Roskos, who helped lead the Bears to the state Group 2 championship.

Roskos had 33 goals and two assists. He was at his best in the postseason. During Delran’s six playoff games, he totaled 12 goals and two assists.

Roskos scored at least one goal in each playoff game, including the lone score in a 1-0 South Jersey Group 2 semifinal win over Cinnaminson, which was ranked among the top teams in South Jersey.

Roskos had three hat tricks in the tournament, including a three-goal effort in a 6-2 win over Rumson- Fair Haven in a state Group 2 semifinal.

He also scored the game’s first goal in Delran’s 2-1 win over Ramsey in the state Group 2 championship.

Washington Township senior Matt Liss was named the midfielder of the year. Liss had eight goals and nine assists for a Washington Township team that went 14-4-1 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Coaches Tournament and the South Jersey Group 4 tourney.

The defender of the year was Schalick senior Juni Smith. He had 18 goals and four assists. Smith also played up top, but he was such a threat scoring while also playing in the back. Plus he was the key to a strong Schalick defense that recorded 13 shutouts. 

The goalkeeper of the year was Clearview senior Jamel Yasin, who led the Pioneers to a 14-5-4 record. Clearview advanced to the quarterfinals of the South Jersey Group 4 and South Jersey Coaches Tournaments. 

He made 101 saves and recorded 12 shutouts.

The girls’ forward of the year was Ocean City senior Summer Reimet, who was a scoring machine.

Reimet, who will continue her education and soccer career at Monmouth, had 62 goals and nine assists. She helped lead the Red Raiders to the South Jersey Coaches Tournament title, a tourney that features the best teams in South Jersey. 

Reimet finished with 131 goals and 22 assists in her career.

The midfielder of the year was Shawnee senior Nikki Dedes, who helped lead the Renegades to 14-4-5 record and a second place finish in the Olympic Conference American Division and to the quarterfinal round of the Coaches Tournament and South Jersey Group 4 tourney.

She produced 21 goals and seven assists.

In two state tournament games, she had five goals and one assist.

The defender of the year was Cinnaminson’s Carly Yeager. This season Yeager had three goals and five assists for a Cinnaminson team that advanced to the South Jersey Group 2 final before losing to Haddonfield. She keyed a defense that recorded 11 shutouts.

The goalkeeper of the year was Eastern senior Alex Clark, who led the Vikings to the Olympic Conference American Division title. 

Eastern (18-3-1) advanced to the semifinals of the Coaches Tournament and quarterfinal of the South Jersey Group 4 tourney. The Vikings recorded 10 shutouts.
