Middletown South and Toms River North met last October in what was one of the biggest games of the season. Things are quite a bit different this season as the two perennial powers prepare for Friday night’s Jersey Mike’s Game of the Week on 92.7 WOBM and 1160/1310AM.

The visiting Eagles come in with a 2-3 record and a struggling offense that has scored more than 10 points only once this season. However you can be sure legendary coach Steve Antonucci will have Middletown South ready to play as they try and build some late-season momentum behind linebacker Jake Krellin. Toms River North was the shore’s top ranked team last season before losing in the state sectional finals and the Mariners were hit hard by graduation. However nobody expected a 1-5 start which is the record they bring into Friday’s game. Daryn Blackwell and Mickey Maldonado are among North’s top players.

The game will be broadcast live by Matt Harmon, Kevin Williams and Ed Sarluca on 1160 & 1310AM with a live stream on shoresportsnetwork.com beginning at 6:50 pm. Those with smartphones can also download the FREE Shore Sports Network mobile app and listen right on their handheld device.

The game of the week is presented by Jersey Mike’s Subs…be a sub above.
