Break up the Griffins! Kinmon's gem. MU football!

Yes, that's the same Monsignor Donovan team which lost its first 10 games and has now won three in a row after Thursday's 10-0, one-hit win over Central. Eric Molinuex struck out four while Brandon Youshock, one of the few senior regulars, hit a three-run home run and later a 2-run shot to end the game in the sixth inning. Donovan, buried by injuries early in the year, is now healthy and this week marked the return of No. pitcher Chris Keiper.

St. John Vianney found its hitting shoes again Thursday defeating Matawan 9-3 as Matt Georgiana hit a three-run bomb and Julian Sonnenfeld a solo blast.

CBA rgained control of the A North race, 9-3 over Middletown North as Vin Avella hit a two-run home run and Dave Laufer went the route with four strikeouts.

In case you didn't hear owell junior Craig Kinmon no-hit Freehold Township Thursday, 2-1, shoving the Pats 1.5 games off the CBA's first place.
Hard to believe that Township lineup didn't get a hit but Kinmon (2-3), who has pitched well for the most part this season (except for being shelled by Ocean in his prior start), walked none and Howell played error less ball. With the win Howell (5-7) stayed in the running for an NJSIAA Tournament berth.

Manalapan, which has been sliding lately, is a threat any time St. John's bound B. J. Martin takes the mound. Just ask Ocean which Martin defeated Thursday, 3-2. In a move often used to comply with the NJSIAA 10-inning per week pitching rule, Martin worked the first five innings, skipped the sixth, and returned in the seventh. I guess we can say he gets the win and the save.

It appears there will be a few changes in this week's Press top 10 which comes out Saturday. There will be some shifting around near the top and look for two teams to jump back into the Top 10 and two others to exit.

Regarding Monmouth University football..will have some news later Friday on a former All-Shore running back who plans to transfer into the Hawks' program. Thanks to Scott Stump for the tip.
