Time to add some hardware to Hunterdon Central's trophy case.
Leading Edge 2020 Jack Aimone (Rutgers) erupted for five goals and an assist and '20 Cory Dobrosky added a goal as the Red Devils upended Westfield, 11-5, in the North Jersey Group 4 championship Saturday.
"He's as talented as they come," HC coach Mike Vergalito said of Aimone to NJ.com's Mike Kinney. "We've been encouraging him to run and move his feet. They (Westfield) chose not to slide, so Jack had some opportunities to try to carry the ball by his man and create something. He might have shown himself as well as everyone else how good he can be."
'19 Jake Engelke had a goal and an assist in the loss, while '19 Matt Angelo (Dickinson) won 10 faceoffs and collected three ground balls for Westfield.
Somerville rode Evan Barr's monster game to a South Jersey Group 2 title.

Moorestown 17, Shawnee 6: '19 Ben Cantwell (UMass) pocketed four goals to pace Moorestown to its third straight South Jersey Group 3 title.
