Welcome to the 2019 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 bob.badders@townsquaremedia.com or tweet it to me at @Bob_Badders.

 

Instant Gratification

Sophomore Matt Dollive got Wall started in style with an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and the Crimson Knights went on to a 41-21 win over Freehold.

 

Finding a way to make a play

Donovan Catholic quarterback Ryan Clark looks like he's about to be sacked by Central's defense but he instead escapes the pocket to find Damian Johnson for a 53-yard gain.

 

Going left...no, wait, right

Neptune's Willie Gross started out running to his left on a jet sweep but with Jackson Liberty's defense bearing down on him he had nowhere to go. Instead, he put on the breaks, went to his right, shook a few defenders and got into the end zone on one of the longest 4-yard touchdowns runs you'll see.

 

Warrior Tricks

Manasquan's offensive playbook is fairly straightforward, but the Warriors have a bag of tricks they like to dive into now and again. When they do, it usually ends up in working, just as it did here on sophomore Robert Pendergist's 64-yard touchdown run on a wide receiver reverse.

 

DOMination

Marlboro senior tight end Dom Palumbo had a monster game in the Mustangs' 24-17 win over Howell with touchdown catches of 78 and 64 yards.

 

Will the Thrill

Jackson Memorial's Will Towns had a huge game in the Jaguars' 28-14 win over Brick with 242 yards rushing and four touchdowns. This play looked dead in the water when Towns and quarterback Lonnie Cebulski bumped into each other in the backfield, but Towns was able to recover, get to the edge and turn on the jets for an 82-yard touchdown run.

 

Right place, right time

Ocean junior Chris Carasia had a night to remember in the Spartans' 47-0 win over Ocean. He intercepted two passes and brought both back for touchdowns, including a school-record 96-yard pick-six. Both times he capitalized on tipped passes by being right where he needed to be.

 

 

Clutch Catches

Toms River North's 22-21 double-overtime victory over Rumson-Fair Haven had numerous twists and turns. Rumson tied the game at 14 with three seconds left in regulation on this great catch by junior wide receiver Patrick Jamin.

 

After Toms River North scored on a great touchdown catch by Ray Carlson, which we'll get to next, the Mariners went for the 2-point conversion and senior Dominick Jacob came down with the catch after it deflected off the hands of a Rumson defender, giving the Mariners the epic victory.

 

Ray of Hope

In his first game playing wide receiver, Toms River North senior Ray Carlson was awesome with five receptions for 166 yards and two touchdowns in a 22-21 double-overtime victory over Rumson-Fair Haven. With the Mariners trailing 21-14 in double overtime. Carlson made this sensational one-handed catch for a 28-yard touchdown run to put the Mariners in position to win the game with a 2-point conversion. Here's a sideline angle form up high and the on-the-field.
