 Ocean City senior captain Julie Burnell made 11 saves in posting her third consecutive shutout, and the visiting Red Raiders received balanced scoring to knock off ninth-ranked Egg Harbor Township, 3-0.
Fran Babore, Jillian Baltz and Leia Shutz each had a goal for Ocean City, which improved to 2-0-1. The 3-1 Eagles had won their first three matches by a combined score of 8-0.

A hat trick by Jessica Mann was more than enough for host Mainland (4-1), which peppered Vineland keeper Leanne Metcalf with 29 shots in coasting, 7-0.

Middle Township used goals by Kelsey McCusker and Lauren Perrotta and shutout goaltending by Rebecca Sykes to blank Our Lady of Mercy, 2-0.


 Gateway’s Kersten Spisell tied it with 29 minutes to go in regulation and goalie Peggy Nicole piled up 21 saves, as the host Gators (2-3-1 overall, 2-2-1 conference) played Patriot Division leader Audubon to a 1-1 tie. Apryle Panyi put the Green Wave (4-0-1, 3-0-1) on the board in the first half.

Haddon Heights (3-0-1, 3-0-1) cashed in a pair of corner kicks by Hannah Palese and Joelle Orlando was perfect in the nets to make the Garnets 3-0 winners at Collingswood.

Andrea DiCarlo scored twice and set up one goal to key a second-half uprising that enabled host Woodbury (2-3, 2-2) to put away Lindenwold, 5-0.

Burlington County.

First-half goals by Morgan Doherty, Sami Reader and Colleen Sweeney allowed host Maple Shade (3-1, 3-0) to hold off New Egypt, 3-2, and retain at least a share of the Patriot Division lead.
