Unbelievable weather we are having in the month of November which has made sitting out and enjoying the boy’s soccer game extremely easy. On a day when you could go outside in a short sleeve shirt, jeans and comfortable shoes, an exciting game broke out in Cinnaminson when Glassboro visiting the Pirates in a South Jersey Group 2 boy’s soccer game watched the Bulldogs take an early one goal lead into intermission. Cinnaminson turned the game around in the second half scoring four goals only to watch Glassboro rally late in this game. The Pirates would prevail as Cinnaminson would advance to meet Delran in the next round after defeating Glassboro 4-3.
Glassboro showed up with quick a few fans that made the trip to the pleasant city of Cinnaminson. They definitely were heard at the 26:38 mark of the first half when Bill Givens sent a pass toward Mike Turner’s way who deposited the ball into the net. The Pirates would try to respond before the half by keeper Zach Collins was spectacular coming up with two consecutive big time saves against Cinnaminson’s pressure inside the box. Glassboro would keep that one goal advantage through the first half.
When the whistle was blown to start the second half, Cinnaminson didn’t waste anytime tying this game. With just 54 seconds into the half, Mark Gidjunis assisted in Greg Zizik in his goal and the game was knotted at a goal apiece. Gidjunis would score the go ahead goal three minutes later when Dennis Bond assisted in the goal. Two more goals by Dan Korenyi and Adam Kolarvic pushed Cinnaminson lead to 4-1 past the midway point of this game. Glassboro did not give up as Mike Kalapos scored twice to end the Pirates four unanswered goal streak to make a game out of it. The exciting ending ended with Cinnaminson holding on to their one goal advantage.
