JSI Week 6 Football Plays of the Week
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 6. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet it to me at @Bob_Badders
10. A Falcon Soars
We start things off with Monmouth Regional wide receiver Dayshawn Porter, who hauls in a bomb from senior quarterback Drew Faccone, shakes free of a tackler and scores a 60-yard touchdown.
9. Tips are appreciated
Barnegat defensive back Sean Madej couldn't bring down the interception initially but was able to tip it forward and run under it for the pick in the Bengals' 28-7 win over Keyport.
8. Flew the Koop
This is a great run by Brick senior Jake Wynkoop. He makes the first tackler miss, cuts it back across the field, slips one more tackle and turns on the jets for a 74-yard touchdown run in the Dragon's 42-14 victory over Lacey.
7. Slant and Gone
It took only one play for Toms River North's offensive to find the end zone on its way to a 42-0 win over rival Toms River South in "The Civil War". Sophomore quarterback Jake Kazanowsky hits Dominick Jacob in stride on a slant and he goes untouched for the 80-yard touchdown.
6. He can throw, too.
In Lacey's game versus Brick, Lions receiver D.J. Pulizzano takes a pass on a quick screen before turning and lofting a 27-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Evans.
5. Laying out, showing out
Brick senior Jimmy Leblo has been one of the most versatile players in the Shore this season, scoring touchdowns passing, rushing, receiving and on defense. During the Dragons' 42-14 win over Lacey he dives to bring in a 23-yard touchdown pass from Anthony Prato.
4. Gucci 'Maine
Long Branch junior Jermaine Corbett is one of the best running backs in the Shore Conference, so when he lines up deep on kickoff returns there's always a chance he can take it to the house. He did exactly that on the opening kickoff against Wall, juking tacklers in the lane, getting to the sideline and breaking one final tackle on his way to an 87-yard touchdown that sparked a 26-0 Long Branch win.
3. Holden On Tight
Ocean stunned Point Boro, 27-21, on a 33-yard touchdown pass from Robbie Nungesser to Holden Lowe with four seconds left in regulation. Nungesser scrambled out of the pocket and found Lowe in the back-right corner of the end zone, and Lowe slid on his knees to make the catch. The play was originally ruled incomplete but the officials, utilizing the NJSIAA's new instant replay system which was available for that game, overturned the call on the field. Here's both the sideline and end zone angles.
2. Defenders of Liberty
Jackson Liberty shocked the Shore Conference with a 14-0 win over previously-undefeated rival Jackson Memorial thanks to a tremendous defensive performance. Shane Simonson had an early interception and 50-yard return that set up the only touchdown the Lions would need, and Joe DeVito added a 93-yard pick-6 later in the first half to send Liberty to its first-ever win over the Jaguars.
1. Stranger Things
This is one of the wildest plays you'll ever see. Trailing 14-6 in the fourth quarter, Colts Neck was punting from its own 25-yard line when the snap went over the head of punter Gianpiero Oriolo. He was able to recover and complete a pass to senior running back Michael Boliver, who rumbled 15 yards ahead. That gain would not have been enough for a first down, so as Marlboro's defenders brought him to the ground he lateraled to junior wide receiver Gabriel Lugo, who sprinted the remaining 60 yards for the improbable touchdown. Plenty of controversy surrounds the play, however, which you can read more about in the game recap (scroll to the bottom). Even so, you have to give it up to Colts Neck's players for pulling out all the stops to keep the play going.
