Welcome to the 2018 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 Jersey Shore Institute of Health and Wellness.
This week we take a look at the top clips from Week 3. 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 email@example.com or tweet it to me at @Bob_Badders.
10. The Streak is Over
Neptune got into the win column for the first time since 2016, snapping a 12-game losing streak with a 20-14 win over Colts Neck. Sophomore quarterback Nino Bua connected with senior wideout Saadiq Armstead for this go-ahead 45-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
9. To the House
Manasquan's Canyon Birch takes this kickoff back 82 yards for a score in the Warriors' 34-13 win over Raritan. He picked up a huge block from Matt Lyons (20) on the play and also used a one-man convoy by James Pendergist (11) on his sprint for six.
8. To the House, part 2
Manalapan junior running back Nico Santorelli had a big game in the Braves' 49-22 win over Freehold Township, including this 89-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
7. Big ups for Burton
Pinelands' Evan Burton has shown he can run over defenders, and apparently, he can jump to make catches over them, too.
6. Close Quarters
Wall's Casey Larkin slips through three tacklers and then stays in bounds down the sideline to take a screen pass 65 yards for a touchdown in a 28-7 win over Lacey.
5. The Bulldog
Rumson's Alex Maldjian is off to a magnificent start this season, pulling off runs like this great 40-yard touchdown on fourth down during a 28-14 win over Brick Memorial.
4. Drivin' 85
St. John Vianney's offense had its best game of the season in a 37-20 win over Middletown North and Chambers went for over 200 yards thanks to this awesome 85-yard touchdown gallop.
3. Mike the Magnet
Brick's ball-hawking senior defensive back Mike McGuigan came away with his third interception of the season by snagging this great diving INT off a tipped pass late in the first half of the Dragons' 34-15 win over Freehold.
2. Eagle Claw
Middletown South was nearly flawless in a 45-0 win over Howell, including this sick one-handed interception by Chris Lotito.
1. Magnificent Malik
Mater Dei junior running back Malik Ingram somehow stays on his feet and then runs over a Shore defender on his way to a dazzling 32-yard touchdown run to help the Seraphs rally for a 36-8 win.
