Video and statistics by Ryne Olsen - Shore Sports Network contributor
TOMS RIVER - Senior quarterback Tymere Berry and senior running back Khaleel Green capped three years together as a dynamic duo that helped resurrect one of the Shore Conference's oldest and proudest programs by combining for four touchdowns to cap their careers with a win on Thanksgiving.
Berry ran for 140 yards and two touchdowns and Greene also went over the 100-yard mark with 114 yards and two touchdowns to power a 30-26 nondivisional win over Lakewood at Detwiler Stadium in the 95th edition of the Shore's oldest Thanksgiving rivalry.
Berry had touchdown runs of 2 and 8 yards, and Greene scored from 26 and 49 yards on a pair of runs for the Indians (5-5), who rallied from a 14-0 deficit with three unanswered touchdowns. Kicker Matt Shiffer also added a 28-yard field goal that made it 30-20 with 2:12 left in the game.
Temple-bound Lakewood senior quarterback Chapelle Cook was outstanding in defeat for the Piners (4-6), rushing for 179 yards, running for a 3-yard touchdown and a two-point conversion, and throwing a 20-yard touchdown pass to junior Amir Tyler and a 13-yard scoring pass to Jaqel Hunter.
