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 Jersey Mike’s Team of the Week for Week Five is Toms River North, which defeated Jackson Memorial 33-23 for a critical Class A South victory. The Mariners and head coach Dave Oizerowitz were presented with a special game ball at practice by Shore Sports Network’s Kevin Williams. The players were also treated to free Jersey Mike’s subs from the Silverton location in Toms River.

Senior running back Asante Moorer had a huge game with 201 yards rushing and three touchdowns, and 81 yards receiving and a touchdown. Quarterback Mike Husni had 217 total yards and two touchdowns and the Mariners' defense came through with some clutch stops to snap a two-game losing streak to the Jaguars.

Toms River North has now won three straight games to improve to 4-1. The game against Jackson Memorial was critical because both teams entered with one Class A South loss, meaning the winner was still in title contention while the loser was almost certainly eliminated from earning the division championship. The Mariners are now tied for second place with Brick Memorial and Toms River South, who are each one game behind undefeated Brick. Toms River North and Brick play on Oct. 30.

Toms River North also moved up on the latest Shore Sports Network Top 10.
