Middletown South’s Shore Conference schedule shows no mercy; back-to-back road matchups with Catholic powers is grueling. The Eagles will, after falling to Saint John Vianney last week, make the short trip to Red Bank to take on the RBC Caseys. The Eagles won’t see the 12-0, 2018 RBC squad that c...
