Toms River East quarterback Mike Goodall could have just run out of bounds at the end of this key 21-yard run, but that's not his style. He finishes the run strong by blasting a Middletown North defender. The Raiders scored a 17-7 win over the Lions in the Central, Group 4 state quarterfinals.
It all went Wall's way in a 49-7 win over Allentown in the Central, Group 3 state quarterfinals, including junior defensive back Casey Larkin being a recipient of a favorable carom off an Allentown receiver for a nice interception.
Mauled by the Jaguars
The Jackson Memorial defense was suffocating in a 20-0 victory over Moorestown in the Central, Group 4 state quarterfinals and even got into the end zone when Wally Doman returned a fumble 64 yards for a touchdown.
Living the dream
Every defensive lineman dreams of the day they pick up a fumble or intercept a pass and return it all the way for a touchdown, and that's exactly what Toms River North's CJ Niedzielski did during the Mariners' 42-17 win over South Brunswick in the Central, Group 5 playoffs. John O'Donnell deflected the pass up into the air and Niedzielski corralled it at the 50-yard line before racing the other way for the touchdown.
'Poni is a horse
Raritan came up just short in a 27-26 loss to Timber Creek in the Central, Group 3 state quarterfinals but senior quarterback Steve Coponi had a big game with 136 yards rushing and three touchdowns, including this 86-yard score.
'Good' to go
Toms River North junior wide receiver Zach Goodale had a huge game in the Mariners' 42-17 win over South Brunswick in the Central, Group 5 state quarterfinals with three catches for 139 yards and two touchdowns. First was an 86-yard touchdown catch and then was a great catch in the back of the end zone.
Ammirati does it all
Holmdel senior running back Tom Ammirati had a hand in all three of the Hornets' touchdowns in a 22-14 win over Red Bank in the South, Group 3 state quarterfinals, including this touchdown pass to Dylan Day on a halfback pass.
