Welcome to the 2021 edition of the Shore Sports Network’s top plays, highlighting the most dazzling and exciting moments from Shore Conference football action, brought to you by Burger 25 in Toms River. If you've never been to Burger 25, what are you waiting for? Seriously, it's worth the trip no matter where you live at the Jersey Shore.

This week we take a look at the top clips from Week 11, which included the NJSIAA public sectional semifinals, the Non-Public quarterfinals, and the last of the NJSIAA regional crossover games. We can’t be filming every game at once, so if you have a great clip on Hudl, YouTube, Vimeo or some other service where it can be embedded, or if you have the raw video file, feel free to email me a link at bob.badders@townsquaremedia.com or tweet it to me at @Bob_Badders.

Now, let's take a look at some of the best plays from Week 11.

Burger 25 Football Plays of the Week

Steve Meyer

Raritan QB Ben Hutchins

Raritan senior quarterback Ben Hutchins had two huge plays in the Rockerts' heart-stopping 41-34 win over Hillside in the Central Jersey Group 2 semifinals.

 

 

Point Boro QB Charlie Vitale

Point Boro advanced to the South Jersey Group 2 sectional championship game with a 28-7 win over New Providence and Vitale ran for two touchdowns, including this nifty 25-yard, tackle-avoiding run.

 

Marlboro WR Ryan Mendes

The Mustangs defeated Middletown North, 13-10 in a regional crossover game, to finish with a 7-3 record. It is the program's first winning season since 1999 and the program's second-most wins behind the 1994 team that went 10-1 and won a sectional title. Mendes scored Marlboro's first touchdown with a Moss-like effort on a 23-yard pass from A.J. Schwartz.

 

Donovan Catholic WR Kyree Drake

Donovan Catholic's season came to an end via a 35-7 loss to state No. 1 Bergen Catholic in the Non-Public A quarterfinals but Drake was able to come up with this big play in the second quarter, running a slant and taking it all the way to the house for a 48-yard score.

 

Colts Neck WR John Runfolo

It was tough sledding all night for Colts Neck in a 41-14 loss to Winslow in the Central Jersey Group 4 semifinals but this play was a thing of beauty. Quarterback Tommy Fallon scrambles out of the pocket, gets off a throw to the end zone, and Runfolo dives to make the catch in the back of the end zone.
