Football – Week 7 Top 10 Plays of the Week
We’re back with another edition of Shore Sports Network’s Top 10 Plays of the Week, highlighting the most dazzling and exciting moments from Shore Conference football action.
This week we take a look at the top clips from Week 7. We can’t be filming every game at once, so if you have a great clip on YouTube, Vimeo or some other service where it can be embedded, or if you have the raw video file, feel free to email me a link at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet it to me at @Bob_Badders.
Here are some of the best plays from last week.
10. Another Huge Day for Ashante Worthy
Freehold’s quarterback Ashante Worthy had his second 300-yard rushing game and second seven-touchdown game of the season in a 48-32 win over Marlboro. He had six rushing touchdowns, and this 35-yard score is his best.
9. Left…no, right!
I wouldn’t call this a spin move, but Marlboro’s Jonny Helff plants his foot and reverses field to catch the entire Freehold defense off guard for a 43-yard touchdown run.
8. Pirouetting Prato
Great spin move along the sideline by Brick quarterback John Prato for a 18-yard touchdown in the Dragons’ 46-6 wipeout of Lakewood.
7. Fightin’ Fullback
Manalapan fullback Chris Maksimik is a punishing blocker and one of the Braves’ most indispensable players. He makes the most of his carry here by running into the pile, then emerging from the scrum for a 35-yard touchdown run.
6. The Closer
With Keansburg needing a first down to close out a 20-12 win over South River, junior quarterback Danny Vital would not be denied, bulldozing through tacklers and carrying defenders on a run that clinched the Titans’ second win in a row.
5. Extra Effort
Middletown North wide receiver Brendan Kube gets behind the defense on an out-and-up, hauls in the long pass and fights his way across the goal line with a dive for a great 62-yard touchdown catch.
4. Husky Highlight
Matawan’s Jake Burlew makes a great one-handed catch along the sideline to set up a touchdown against Wall.
3. Fast in the Fog
The fog rolled in pretty thick during Southern’s 34-27 win over Brick Memorial. Southern running back John Dolphin is barely visible through the haze, but we promise it’s him pulling off one of the longest runs in the Shore this season on an 89-yard touchdown run.
2. Long Branch’s Matt Clarke has to fight just to bring down this four-yard pass, but then he turns up field and goes all the way for a 64-yard touchdown. He uses a great head-fake juke to leave a defender in the dust, then slips another tackler on his way to the end zone.
1. Toms River North senior wideout Bryce Watts had a monster game with 4 catches for 182 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Mariners’ emphatic 41-21 win over Middletown South. His 4.35 speed was on full display on touchdowns of 45, 71 and 58 yards. The 71-yard touchdown was also a phenomenal throw by senior quarterback Mike Husni. Enjoy all three plays in our No. 1 spot.
