Toms River South defeated Brick Township 13-9 Friday afternoon at Detwiler Stadium in Toms River.
The Indians were led by a game high six goals from senior Emily Donzanti and three by classmate Jen Toal. Donzanti also added in two assists on the day bringing her point total up to 42 – 7th most in the state.

At the conclusion of play Friday night, Toms River South remains one of only 16 schools in New Jersey that have yet to settle a set-back this season. They join Colts Neck and Point Boro as the undefeated teams remaining in the Shore Conference.
Kyley Toye deposited three goals for the Dragons while Lydia Salsano and Cassidy Brennan each were credited with two.
Brick Township took the lead early on multiple occasions, grabbing 1-0 and 2-1 advantages before Toms River South poured on the goals.
Brennan broke the ice 2:02 into the contest giving Brick the first goal of the game before Toye regained the Brick lead just 14 seconds after Donzanti tied the score for TRS.
Toms River South would then score the next four goals from four different players before Brennan’s second score cut the Brick deficit to 5-3 with 8:18 remaining in the first half.
Donzanti would conclude the scoring with two markers in the final four minutes to account for the 7-3 Indians lead at the break.
TRS wasted no one creating separation on the scoreboard, with Donzanti and Toal each scoring in the first three minutes to increase the lead to six before Rodgers gave South a 10-3 edge – their largest of the day and would prove to be the game-winner.
Brick would snap a 22-minute goal drought with just under 10 minutes left when Toye found the net twice in the span of two minutes surrounding a TRS score from Toal.
Lacey Wernoch and Madison Gibis would find the scoresheet for the Dragons, but it was not enough as the Indians did enough to preserve their sixth victory of the season.
With the win, Toms River South improves to 6-0 on the season and are 4-0 in A-South. They have two of the best goal-scorers in New Jersey in Donzanti (30) and Toal (28) sitting tied for 8th and 11th respectfully.
