Class A Central

No. 1 Red Bank Catholic 49, Monmouth 7

The Caseys (8-0, 5-0) won their 32nd straight game against Shore Conference competition, building a 42-0 halftime lead on their way to topping the Falcons (2-6, 1-5).

Junior Mike Cordova had a pair of touchdowns, fullback Frank Olmo added a touchdown run, and sophomore Dylan Murphy and juniors Nick Cella and Jamie Gordinier each had their first varsity touchdowns in the win.

Raritan 23, St. John Vianney 20

The Rockets (3-5, 2-3) gave themselves a chance at a state playoff berth by knocking off the Lancers (3-5, 2-4), as Raritan rallied from an early 14-0 hole and capped the win when junior quarterback Riley Sullivan hit junior Colby Jones with a 2-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-goal with 45 seconds left in the game for a 23-14 lead.

Sullivan threw three touchdown passes in the win, including a 25-yarder to James Wines and a 32-yard scoring pass to Dylan Dewysockie. Tom Pulcine added a 29-yard field goal as time expired in the first half for a 16-14 lead that was set up a 60-yard interception return by linebacker Sean Ennis. Jones also had a blocked field goal with Raritan up by two in the fourth quarter, and the Rockets' defense registered six sacks in the win.

St. John Vianney took a 14-0 lead on a 66-yard touchdown pass by Billy DeMato to wideout Julanee Prince and a 77-yard touchdown run by Matt Falco in the second quarter before Raritan scored 23 unanswered points. Prince also had an 18-yard touchdown catch as time expired for the final margin.

Class A South

Brick Memorial 40, Lacey 7

Senior quarterback Rob Triano ran for two scores and threw three touchdown passes, all in the first half, and senior Mike Basile caught a touchdown pass and had an 11-yard touchdown catch as the Mustangs (6-3, 4-3) cruised past the Lions (5-4, 3-4).

Triano ran for touchdowns of 77 and 9 yards, and threw a 45-yard touchdown pass to Basile, a 23-yard score to Karl Kumm and a 16-yard strike to Zach Tighe as Brick Memorial built a 34-0 halftime lead.

Conor Davies threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Christian Tutela in the loss for Lacey.

Southern 17, Toms River East 14

A 27-yard field goal by senior Rob Yaiser, the first field goal of his career, gave the Rams (4-4, 3-4) a 17-7 third-quarter lead, and they held on to deny the Raiders (2-6, 1-5) a state playoff berth.

Grant Bissey had a 2-yard touchdown run, and back-up quarterback Dan Uccellini, playing in place of injured starter Logan Sheehan, hit Justin Ruppert for a 16-yard touchdown on fourth down with seven seconds left in the first half for a 14-7 Southern lead.

Senior tailback Matt Gudzak had a 28-yard touchdown run and a three-yard touchdown run in the loss for Toms River East.

Class B North

No. 3 Ocean 35, Freehold 19

The Spartans (8-0, 6-0) clinched the outright Class B North title by beating the Colonials (1-7, 1-5), as sophomore Tyler Thompson ran for touchdowns of 76, 5 and 10 yards to help power the win.

Junior quarterback Royal Moore threw a touchdown pass to Zack Godfrey and also caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Kenny Pickett in the win.


Edison 21, Marlboro 0 

Mater Dei Prep 30, Spotswood 24 (OT) 

The Seraphs (5-4) stunned the Chargers (7-2) as junior quarterback Christian Palmer ran for a 16-yard touchdown in overtime to guarantee Mater Dei's first non-losing season since 1999.

A 34-yard touchdown pass by Palmer to freshman Eddie Lewis and a two-point conversion by Tysaun White with 42 seconds left in regulation sent the game into overtime. White also had a touchdown, and Palmer also ran for two scores in the win as Mater Dei finished the regular season 4-0 against nonconference competition. Spotswood had not allowed more than 19 points in a game all season and handed Point Beach (7-1) its only loss.
