Over the course of two days, including three on Saturday, there were four New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Championships in action.

The first Championship of the weekend was the women’s soccer championship between the Rowan University Owls and The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) Lions at Rowan University campus in Glassboro, NJ on Friday night. TCNJ took a 1-0 lead into the half after a penalty kick. Sarah Rosenburg scored for Rowan in the 65th minute to tie the game at 1. The goal would be the factor that sent the game into overtime tied at one goal apiece.

Cathryn McCarry scored the winning goal in overtime, and Rowan defeated TCNJ 2-1 to win the New Jersey Athletic Conference women’s soccer title.

On Saturday, there were three NJAC Championships on schedule. Rutgers-Camden and Montclair State University were playing in the NJAC men’s soccer final in Montclair, NJ, Rowan playing TCNJ in the Field Hockey Finals, and Stockton hosting Montclair State University in the Women’s Volleyball Final.

The volleyball final was the first final of the day to get underway a 2 p.m. ET. Stockton went into the game looking for their eighth straight NJAC volleyball title with a win over Montclair State.

The matchup looked one-sided, as Stockton came in with a 19-3 record, while MSU came in with a 19-13 record. The game wound up being that way, as Stockton did in fact win their eighth straight NJAC volleyball title with a 3-0 (25-16, 25-18, 25-1) sweep of the Red Hawks.

The men’s soccer final was second to be played, as the game began at 6 p.m. ET. Neither team scored a goal even after 100 minutes of play. The game was played all the way into double overtime, where the teams had to kick penalty kicks to determine the winner.

Rutgers Camden went on to kick five successful penalty kicks while Montclair State only succeeded on four. Rutgers-Camden avenged their loss to MSU last season to win the 2015 men’s soccer title.

An hour after the men’s soccer final began, the field hockey final began. These two teams met in the women’s soccer final yesterday, a game which Rowan won 2-1 in OT. TCNJ was looking to redeem the OT loss to Rowan in this game. TCNJ held a 2-0 lead over Rowan, and they held off a Rowan comeback rally to win the title by a score of 3-2.
