Week 5 Recap

Burlington City running back Jimmy Browne had a monster week, carrying the ball 30 times for 379 yards and four scores in the Blue Devils’ 44-38 victory over New Egypt. The performance gives Browne 1,131 in just four games, and puts the Blue Devils in firm control in the race for the WJFL Freedom Division title.

Week 5 Preview

Timber Creek QB Devin Leary has already thrown for 1,055 yards and 12 touchdowns this year. Eastern is looking for its first 5-0 start since 2013, when it began the year 6-0 and finished with 10 victories.

Week 4 Recap

Take a peak at South, Group 5 if you want to see the most loaded public school section in New Jersey. As of this week, the top six teams in the section—Millville, Rancocas Valley, Eastern, Howell, Vineland and Lenape—are all undefeated.

Week 4 Predictions

Each of the past three meetings between the long-time rivals has been decided by exactly three points, with Joe’s winning the most recent, 17-14. Bergen Catholic running back Josh McKenzie will be a major test for the stout Green Knights defense that held Delbarton to a goose egg two weeks ago.

Week 3 Recap

Millville defeated a very good St. Augustine Prep squad thanks to a clutch late-game drive by the Thunderbolts. Trailing by 4, and forced to start their possession from their own 8 due to a penalty, they drove down the field and scored on a 10-yard touchdown strike from quarterback E.J. Nichols to running back Clayton Scott. Nichols had a big day, going 14-of-20 for 149 yards and four touchdowns.

Week 3 Preview

Quarterback Matt Lajoie and wide out Jake Topolski form one of the top passing combinations in the WJFL. The Falcons haven’t forgotten last year, when they came into their meeting with Lenape undefeated, only to get drubbed, 20-3.

Week 2 Recap

Seton Hall Prep showed that it is much closer than many might have assumed to being able to compete with the NJSFC’s Big Six, leading in overtime before falling to Paramus Catholic, 33-30. 

Week 2 Predictions

The Lions have a dangerous running back in Connor Welsh, who rushed for 115 yards and three scores in last week’s win over Neptune. RBC’s offense is one of the Shore’s most dangerous, lead by quarterback Steve Lubischer, who threw two touchdowns in the Caseys’ dominant win over Middletown South.

Week 1 Recap

Timber Creek quarterback Devin Leary did exactly what most expect him to do -- play spectacularly -- but it still took a missed field goal by the Crusaders in the waning moments of Friday night’s game for the Chargers to beat Delsea, 39-36. Leary went 17of-26 for 254 yards and two touchdowns, but his production was largely matched by Delsea running back Aidan Borguet, who carried the ball 29 times for 354 yards and three touchdowns.

Week 1 Predictions

Montclair running back Daniel Webb is one of the top returning rushers in New Jersey, having churned out 2,020 yards as a junior. The Mounties blew out the Bulldogs, 42-15, in last year’s opener, but Tech bounced back to go 9-3 and reach the North 1, Group 5 final.

Week Zero Recap

Bergen Catholic quarterback Johnny Langan kicked off the 2017 season with a performance for the ages, going 15-of-23 for 306 yards and five touchdowns in leading BC to a 48-27 win over DePaul. Langan also caught a 55-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Dylan Classi that served as the dagger score early in the fourth.

Week Zero Predictions

The 2017 season is finally upon us, and that’s a good thing. Instead of discussing coaching turnover and playoff proposals, the focus will be on the games. Even though it’s only “Week Zero,” there are plenty of top-quality games on the slate.
