The Block GameDay Countdown takes us to West Long Branch tonight where the Shore Regional Blue Devils host the Falcons of Monmouth Regional. After losing their opener Shore has won three in a row and in that stretch coach Mark Costantino in his 31st season collected his 200th victory.  Just the ninth coach in Shore Conference history to reach that milestone, “Cos” has guided teams to four NJSIAA sectional titles.

Monmouth won their opener against Red Bank, lost two straight and then knocked off Holmdel last weekend to even their record at 2-2.  Coming off a 6-4 season in 2021 coach Dan Wendel hopes to make it back-to-back winning campaigns for the Falcons.

The game is expected to be one of many in which student sections participate in a “black out” as a tribute to injured St. John Vianney player Aaron Van Trease.

If you're heading to the game then look for the Shore Sports Network SUV near the main 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.
