Union wins again, this time downing South Brunswick: Andy Mendlowitz of the Courier News was on hand to see Union QB Andrew Sanborn connect with WR Ahmirr Robinson twice for scores. The Farmers now hold victories over Linden, Phillipsburg and the Vikings this year.

Highland Regional shocks Timber Creek: Josh Friedman of the Courier Post saw Highland Regional score a huge win over Timber Creek. They beat the Chargers, 16-15, for the first time since 2002, with its defense forcing four turnovers. Two of those takeaways were interceptions by defensive end Oyame’ Adoga.

Ramapo rallies to beat River Dell: Quarterback A.J. Wingfield hit wide receiver Isaiah Savitt for a 25-yard touchdown in overtime as Ramapo rallied from a 35-20 deficit to win 42-35. Savitt caught three touchdown passes in the victory, which took place with Greg Mattura of The Record reporting.

DePaul downs St. Peter’s Prep to shake up NJSFC United Red: Mattura had a busy weekend, also watching DePaul’s huge win over St. Peter’s Prep, 16-13. DePaul QB Taquan Roberson was in street clothes, but backup Johnny Amodeo’s third quarter 55-yard touchdown pass to wide out Ronnie Hickman was the play that effectively sealed the game for the Spartans.

Brick Memorial upsets St. John Vianney, 31-21: In one of the Shore Conference’s bigger surprises, the Mustangs overcame a late three-point deficit to go ahead on a 35-yard scoring run by Anthony Albanese. Larissa Forese was on hand for the Ocean Star to document the action.

Willingboro holds off Cinnaminson, 14-12, in a wild one: RB Demie Sumo’s two-point run with just under two minutes to play gave the Chimeras the victory. Mark Trible of the Courier Post saw the exciting final period, in which WR Nasir Murray hauled in an eight-yard touchdown from QB Ah-Shaun Davis to set up the winning conversion.
