Garnets win N.J. soccer title

Excerpt from Philly.com:

Haddon Heights (19-3-3) struck first in the eighth minute. A booming punt from keeper Jon Weaver and nifty passes from Danny Hovern and Jesse Weick led to an open look for Andrew Hicks in front of the net.

“When I got the ball, I saw the goalie coming toward me and I just laid it around him,” Hicks said. “That completely set the tone. We got a lot of momentum from that goal.”

The next two goals, both in the first half, were products of perfectly placed services.

In the 27th minute, freshman Nick Smith, who arguably has the area’s strongest throw-in, tossed the ball about 40 yards toward the front center of the net, where Kevin Nelan headed it into the goal.

Three minutes later, Vinny Calla touched home a 50-yard free kick from Weaver.

Weaver was particularly brilliant in his final high school game, recording eight saves and embodying the poise his team showed as Harrison tried to turn the game into a street fight in the second half.

Harrison (20-2-2) received a red card after a Haddon Heights player was punched with 29:21 remaining. That style didn’t change much, as the Garnets rode out the final 29-plus minutes, far more focused on the big picture.
