Jersey Mike’s Team of the Week: Shore Regional
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.
The Team of the Week for Week Eight is Shore Regional, which shut out rival Point Beach 17-0 to clinch at least a tie for its second straight Class B Central title and the 15th division title in its proud history. The Blue Devils were given a special game ball and treated to free Jersey Mike’s subs after practice on Tuesday.
Junior fullback Doug Goldsmith ran for 145 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries and a defense led by senior linebacker James Bedell limited the Garnet Gulls to 133 total yards, including only 54 yards rushing on 33 attempts. Senior Jake Monteiro added a 37-yard field goal, and junior Tyreek McCain also had a 15-yard touchdown run.
The Blue Devils can wrap up the outright division title with a win over Asbury Park this week, which also would clinch them the No. 1 seed in Central Jersey Group I for the second straight year. They will almost certainly see Point Beach, which beat them in last year's Central Jersey Group I final, in the first round in their quest to take home their first state title since 2010.
