Every week this fall, Jersey Mike’s and Shore Sports Network will be selecting a Team of the Week based on its performance over the past weekend.

Head coach Ed Gurrieri and his Manalapan Braves earned Jersey Mike's Team of the Week honors for Week Six, presented by Jersey Mike's Area Director Chad Tirpack.

The Team of the Week for Week Six is Manalapan, which won its 30th straight game against Shore Conference competition by knocking off Middletown South, 21-3, in a showdown of top-five teams. The Braves beat the Eagles for the fifth straight time to take a big step toward their fifth straight Class A North title.

Manalapan ran its winning streak against Shore Conference competition to 30 games and took a big step toward a fifth straight division title with a win over Middletown South to earn Team of the Week honors.

Senior tailback Imamu Mayfield ran for 131 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries to lead the offense against an Eagles defense that had posted four shutouts in five games entering the game. Senior kicker Mike Caggiano went 3-for-3 on extra points to give him 215 career points, a Shore Conference scoring record for kickers.

Senior linebacker Joe Mendez and senior defensive end Kyle Mullen led a strong defensive effort, which also included a fumble return by senior linebacker Simon Bublis that helped set up a touchdown. The win also set up a huge nondivisional showdown with No. 1 Red Bank Catholic on Friday night, as the Caseys have a 38-game winning streak against the Shore Conference.
