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 5.

10. Air Raiders

Troy Alvarez hits Zack Connallon on a post route and Connallon does the rest on a 73-yard touchdown run during Keyport's thrilling 22-16 win over Asbury Park.


9. Kavon is Gone

St. John Vianney's Kavon Chambers runs into his own lineman in the backfield but is able to recover and sprint for a 70-yard touchdown in a win over Freehold.


8. Gimmee that!

Manchester junior linebacker Chris Grille came up with a game-changing play in the Hawks' 20-10 win over Point Beach when he yanked the ball right from a runner and took it 45 yards the other way for a touchdown.


7. Tip Drill!

There's something to be said for being in the right place at the right time. Monmouth's Sheldon Lariviere certainly was to catch this deflected pass and race 57 yards for a touchdown.


6. Tip Drill! - Part 2

Great awareness by Freehold Township junior Matthew Arway here to track the pass downfield and then make a great catch after a Marlboro defender tried to swat it away. The 20-yard reception set up a Patriots touchdown.


5. Big Red Boom

Ocean quarterback Robbie Nungesser delivered some punishment on this 11-yard touchdown run by trucking a defender on his way to the end zone. Also a nice move to slip a tackle in the backfield.


4. Jack of All Trades

Rumson's Jack Kelly had a big game on defense for the Bulldogs in their 21-16 win over Mater Dei, including this 47-yard interception return for a touchdown after Gordon Forsyth tipped the pass.


3. Big-play Dom

Marlboro senior tight end Dom Palumbo was at it again with another huge play during the Mustangs' 14-12 win over Marlboro, catching a pass and turning it into a 97-yard touchdown run - the longest offensive touchdown in the Shore this season. He also had a 45-yard touchdown catch and played a stout game on defense.


2. Relentless effort

Middletown South's Chris Lotito had a great all-around game against Toms River North including this sensational defensive play to chase down Jarrod Pruitt and strip him from behind to save a touchdown.


1. MVP - The P stands for Pena

Ocean senior Trebor Pena had a ridiculous all-around game in the Spartans wild 42-37 comeback win over Raritan, including this 95-yard touchdown run. Pena ran for 263 yards and three touchdowns, caught four passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns, made 13 tackles, intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble.
