It's once again time to run the white chalk up the base lines, evenly spread the infield dirt and cut the outfield grass at the Toms River East Little League complex as their annual parade and opening day ceremony take place this Saturday April 1.
The Brick Township High School Green Dragons Football team and their fan base received a huge surprise Monday when they not only won the USA Football 'Football Town Award' but as a result had the chance to meet New York Giants Wide-Receiver Victor Cruz.
What looked to be a defensive showdown heading into the half with a 7-0 Keyport lead, came a back-and-forth third quarter before the Red Raiders went up for good and defeated Point Beach 27-14 in the Central Jersey Groups 1 semifinals which locks up a rematch with Asbury Park in two weeks.
It's not the way they drew up the game-plan heading into the first round of the NJSIAA State Sectional Playoffs in Central Jersey Group IV, but the Brick Township Green Dragons used their potent defense to hold off numerous attempts to rally by 8-seed Neptune Township and win 20-13 Friday night.
Manalapans offense was absolutely ferocious all night long in their 35-0 win over the Class A-North rival Freehold Township Patriots, but it was also 5 sacks recorded by the defense which helped the Braves claim the division crown Friday night.
Backs against the wall, the Southern Regional Rams came rushing out of the gates using the run game to withstand and Lacey Township Lions comeback attempt in the second half to pull off the 25-20 win Friday night.
It was a homecoming game to forget, at least for the host of Friday's nights matchup the Freehold Township Patriots, who suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of the rival Howell Rebels 22-13.
The quest for another run at the postseason is in the hearts and minds of players and coaches across the Shore Conference, and perhaps a change of division is what Lacey Township High School needs to end their drought.
Finding 4 more tallies in the win column last season (4-6) than they did in the one prior (0-10), the Donovan Catholic Griffins seeks next level status and the fight for a Class B-South Championship under new head coach Tom Tarver.
