Haddon Heights wins Group 1 soccer title

Kevin Nelan's blast from 30-yards out was all Haddon Heights would need on Monday afternoon to earn the Garnets first boys' soccer Group 1 title with a 1-0 win over visiting Haddon Township.

The junior attacking midfielder's shot dipped just below the cross bar in the 12th minute.

Senior Jon Weaver posted his 13th shutout with eight saves. He was aided with the strong defensive presence of Kevin Miller, Tommy Stackhouse, Kyle Berner and Dan Roselle.

Last season, Heights fell in the Group 2 Final before moving down to Group 1 this year.
