Sean Daly still remembers the last time Kingsway was in the South Jersey Coaches Cup semifinals.
Just a sophomore in 2019, Daly watched as Kingsway lost 7-6 on penalties against Moorestown after the game ended in a 1-1 tie after double overtime.
On Wednesday, Daly was a reason why the Dragons are going to the final. Now a senior, Daly scored and assisted a goal as sixth-seeded Kingsway used a dominant second half to defeat seventh-seeded West Deptford 3-0 in Cherry Hill.
Kingsway (14-1-1) scored all three of its goals in the second half and has won seven in a row, posting six consecutive clean sheets, and will face top-seeded Cinnaminson, the No. 15 team in the NJ.com top 20, in the final on Saturday.
Two years ago, we were in the (semifinals) and unfortunately lost in PKs, Daly said, so its a big deal for us, especially since its our senior year. Its our last chance to do something big.
After an evenly matched first half where both teams had chances, the Dragons turned it on in the second period.
Antonio Amoroso opened the scoring in the 54th minute, separating himself from a defender and scoring after a Daly throw in. Things got better from there for Kingsway.
Six minutes later, Ian Noel pounced on a loose ball and doubled his teams advantage with a header after some miscommunication by West Deptfords back line and its goalkeeper.
Daly put the exclamation mark in the 72nd minute, scoring his 11th goal of the season after an interchange of play with senior Patrick Roche, capping off a strong second half performance.
At halftime, we knew we had to get the ball wide, Kingsway coach John Green said. Thats when our best chances were when we got down the sideline. Its a narrow field. (West Deptford) plays very narrow as well. So I thought if we didnt change anything, wed finally get those opportunities.
Added Daly: We just played our game and played our hardest and put (the ball) in the back of the net.
Green acknowledged the current senior class has bonded over the years, especially since the loss to Moorestown on penalties two years ago. That semifinal loss is well behind them.
They have a chance to win a tournament that has eluded Kingsway for years on Saturday before the start of the state tournament on Monday.
This senior class, everyone contributes, Green said. And theyve all made it a special season for themselves and for us.
