Jersey Mike’s Team of the Week: St. John Vianney
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 7 is St. John Vianney, which won “The Catholic Clash” over arch-rival Red Bank Catholic, 35-17, to extend its Shore Conference winning streak to 36 games and hand RBC its first loss of the season. Shore Sports Network and Michael Perdichizzi from the Jersey Mike’s location at 251 Main Street were at practice Tuesday evening to present the Lancers and head coach Derek Sininsky with a special game ball and a $500 Jersey Mike’s gift card.
Senior Johnny Buchanan ran for 242 yards and two touchdowns and also made 14 tackles and intercepted a pass to lead St. John Vianney to its third straight win over Red Bank Catholic. Senior Zyaire Sterling ran for 102 yards and two touchdowns and senior quarterback Haaziq Daniels added a 17-yard touchdown run. Senior defensive end Nick Densieski was a pass-rushing force all night with three sacks.
The Lancers, who are ranked No. 2 in the Shore Sports Network Top 10, have not lost to a Shore Conference team since the final game of the 2013 season. They will try to add to their winning streak on Friday night when they host Middletown South (3-3) in a nondivisional game. St. John Vianney is currently averaging 43 points per game and allowing just 9.9 points per game.
