Penalty kicks save Haddon Township boys' soccer

In South Jersey Group 2 boys' soccer Tuesday, Haddon Township goalie Nick Skabla stopped three penalty kicks in the best-of-five tiebreaker to give the visiting Hawks the edge over top-seeded Woodstown.

The teams played to a 2-2 tie through regulation and overtime before Chris Murphy, Joe Bernhardt and Nick DellaValle converted Haddon Township penalty kicks for a 3-1 advantage and a berth in the finals on Friday.

Woodstown got goals from Drew Geiger and Zach Smick, and Murphy and Jay Casey scored in the second half for the fourth-seeded Hawks.
