Jersey Mike’s Game of the Week: Toms River East at Toms River South
Jersey Mike’s has teamed up with the Shore Sports Network to bring you a Game of the Week every Friday night during the fall.
The Game of the Week series continues on Friday night when Toms River East travels across town to Toms River South for a Class A South game kicking off at 7 p.m. at Detwiler Stadium. You can listen to it live on the radio on 1160 a.m. or 1310 a.m. and streaming right here at ShoreSportsNetwork.com.
The Indians, who beat Toms River East 35-0 last year, are coming off a 40-7 win over Donovan Catholic to open the season. They rolled up more than 400 yards on the ground behind star quarterback Tymere Berry, who had 170 yards rushing and three touchdowns, and senior running back Khaleel Greene added a pair of touchdown runs. Ranked No. 6 in the Shore Sports Network Top 10, they feature one of the Shore's most explosive offenses and a defense led by linebacker Quentin DeCarlo and defensive end Jimmy Allen.
Toms River East lost a hard-fought, 21-14 game to division rival Southern in its opener and will look to bounce back with an upset victory against the Indians. In his debut as the Raiders' primary ballcarrier, senior Jeff Wood racked up a career-high 164 yards rushing on 18 carries in the loss to the Rams, so he will be a focus of the Toms River South defense.
Calling the game will be play-by-play broadcaster Matt Harmon, a four-time New Jersey broadcaster of the year, and he is joined in the booth by Kevin Williams, a nine-time New Jersey Sportscaster of the Year and 35-year veteran of covering high school sports. Down on the field is former Shore Conference coach Ed Sarluca, offering his unique perspective of the game from the trenches.
Jersey Mike’s is also sponsoring the Shore Conference Team of the Week on a weekly basis, and the winner will receive free subs after practice that week courtesy of Jersey Mike’s.
