Zach Sack Attack
Freehold's Zach Neely delivers the boom by coming off the edge unblocked to deliver a crushing sack of St. John Vianney quarterback C.J. Duell. Neely forced and then recovered the fumble, which led to a Freehold touchdown in a 17-12 win.
Manasquan's offensive line opened up a massive hole for running back Canyon Birch, who . handled the rest on a 74-yard touchdown run during a 41-6 win over Colts Neck that clinched the Liberty Division title.
Tricky Panthers, part 1
Point Boro went deep into its playbook against Raritan to produce two touchdowns. The first was this 82-yard pass from running back Christian Aurin to wideout Ryan Visco.
10. More Malik Magic
Mater Dei's Malik Ingram took the Seraphs' first play 78 yards for a touchdown on his way to a huge 185-yard, two-touchdown performance in a 43-0 win over Barnegat that clinched the Patriot Division title.
9. Spin Cycle
Freehold's Matt Krauss spins out of a tackle while jumping over some downed linemen on his way to a 40-yard gain. Krauss had a huge afternoon with 272 yards rushing and two scores in a 17-12 win over St. John Vianney.
8. Schoe off
Manalapan's Josh Schoenhaus came up with a great diving interception during the Braves 42-14 win over Central.
7. Taking him for a ride
Ocean wide receiver Alex Bryant takes the direct snap and rips off a 64-yard touchdown, briefly dragging a Toms River South defender behind him. The Spartans won big, 41-8, for their second victory of the season.
6. Tricky Lions
Middletown North quarterback Sean Glenn lines up wide but eventually gets the ball back before firing a 46-yard touchdown pass to Matt Spencer.
5. What just happened?
I've watched this video multiple times and tried to slow it down to figure out how this ball deflected into the hands of Marlboro's Christian Trombetta. I think it bounced off someone's foot. Either way, Trombetta was in the right place at the right time for a great reception.
4. Flea-flicker fun
The theme of Week 5's top plays is certainly trick plays, so here's another. Red Bank Catholic calls a flea-flicker but quarterback Steve Lubischer has to improvise a bit to make it work, scrambling before finding M.J. Wright for a 41-yard score.
3. Sneaky Seraphs
Yep, another trick play. Mater Dei hit big play after big play against Barnegat, including this reverse toss-back where Rob McCoy hits a wide-open Isaiah Noguera for a 64-yard touchdown.
2. Just like they drew it up
Keansburg quarterback Liam Riecks channeled Aaron Rodgers, Johnn Manziel and Patrick Mahomes on this touchdown to Patrick Edwards, scrambling across the field before finally finding his target.
1. Tricky Panthers, part 2
The Panthers ended up falling to Raritan, 21-20, when their 2-point conversion attempt was stopped, but that doesn't make this play any less incredible. With two seconds left in regulation, Point Boro hit a hook and lateral as Garrett Romer passed to Ryan Visco for a 9-yard gain and Visco flipped it to Kyle Komanitsky, who ran the remaining 11 yards for the touchdown as the clock hit zero.
