Top 10 Plays of the Week, 10/8/14
Welcome to the latest edition of the Shore Sports Network’s top plays, highlighting the most dazzling and exciting moments from Shore Conference football action.
This week we take a look at the top clips from Week Four, which featured some thrillers between Top 10 teams and more.
Here we go.
10. Calvin Beasty
St. John Vianney junior running back Calvin Beaty is not really someone you want to see coming at you with a full head of steam.
9. Stop right there.
Central quarterback Mike Miserendino was a starting linebacker before he was the quarterback, and he plays like a linebacker at quarterback if this stiff arm against Pinelands is any indication.
8. It's a fugazi.
Donnie Brasco is on while I'm writing this, so I had to go with fugazi. Jimmy Pierce and Justin Ferrara run the fake punt to perfection for Matawan in a win over Monmouth. I also threw in a nice over-the-shoulder grab by Ferrara, who had a big day.
7. Get off my back, already.
Rumson-Fair Haven sophomore quarterback Mike O'Connor shrugs off a defender on his way to a touchdown run. I also threw in his 74-yard scoring run.
6. I love the 80s.
Jackson Memorial opens with Vinny Lee's 80-yard touchdown run, Brick answers with Carmen Sclafani's 87-yard scoring burst, and away we go on the way to a classic.
5. Leaping Lions
It was a big win for Jackson Liberty over Lakewood, and a big reason was wideout Brett Ribellino, who somehow kept his balance on his touchdown catch for the Lions' only touchdown in a 9-8 win. His teammate Mike Stout also went flying for another catch.
4. Glad to be here.
Barnegat's Kyle Morris and Toms River East's Dan Gilligan were the definition of being in the right place at the right time this past weekend. The best is the Brick Memorial sideline after the Gilligan touchdown catch. "Really?!"
3. Scarlet shake and bake
Neptune quarterback Ralph McLean and running back Royal Moore leave defenders frozen in their wake against Red Bank.
2. Berry is sweet.
By now, it's company policy that we include Toms River South senior quarterback Tymere Berry in Top 10 plays every week. Here he is against Lacey.
1. Trick daddy
Besides the fact that it brought the house down at "The Jungle," this Kyle Johnson-to-Aaron Curet reverse pass for a touchdown was fun because I was standing next to Jackson Memorial assistant Mike Smith late in the half when he said, "When need to try some trickeration here." I joked they should go with the double pass where the quarterback throws it behind the line to a receiver, who then chucks it deep. He walked over to the coaches calling plays, and one play later, they hit the reverse pass. Well done by Smith. That's him yelling, "Yeah baby!" after the TD.
