Midd South at Rumson Featured On The Block GameDay Countdown
The Block GameDay Countdown takes us to Rumson Friday night where the surging Bulldogs host Middletown South in a battle of Shore Conference royalty. Rumson(#7) lost its first two games to powerful Toms River North and Donovan Catholic but since they has collected wins over Wall, Manalapan and Southern. The Eagles (#5) are coming off a bye and take a 3-1 record into the American Division contest. They have wins over Long Branch, Manalapan and Wall with their lone loss coming in week three against top-ranked Red Bank Catholic.
Both teams have always been known for their defense and this year is no different. Rumson struggled early but has allowed just 30 points in their last three games and is coming off a shutout. Meanwhile Middletown South has given up just 33 points in their three wins this season.
The game is significant in terms of power points as teams start thinking about the playoffs. The Eagles are ranked first in the South Group 4 United Power Rankings while Rumson is second in South Group 2.
If you are heading to the game then look for the Shore Sports Network SUV near the west entrance and stop by and register to win a $100 “Block Box” of assorted 100% all-natural prime meat and more. It’s all from The Butcher’s Block Butcher & Table in Long Branch which has taken the shore by storm. You can also pick up your copy of the Shore Sports Network 2022 Football Preview which is a great resource to have all season long.
You can sign-up through halftime and then between the 3rd & 4th quarters we will have the PA Announcer read the name of one randomly selected person who will win the $100 “Black Box.” Also follow us on the Shore Sports Network Facebook page as I’ll provide a scene-setter for the big game as well as updates throughout the evening.
At the conclusion of the game we will present The Butcher’s Block MVP award.
