The opening weekend of the high school football season features some marquee matchups including the annual contest that finds Toms River North visiting Toms River South at venerable Detwiler Stadium.  Not only is this a great rivalry but when played at the home of the “Hitting Indians” it provides one of the truly great settings for a game anywhere in New Jersey.  Of course in the year of COVID, things are very different.

The stadium will appear rather empty with only 500 spectators allowed…most will be parents of players, coaches, cheerleaders, and members of the South marching band as no tickets will be sold.  However, if you want to watch the latest installment of a rivalry that goes back to 1972 you can and it’s free.

The Shore Sports Network with the help of EVideo Productions will stream tonight’s “Jersey Mike’s Game of the Week” on shoresportsnetwork.com and our free app.  Matt Harmon, Kevin Williams, and Ed Sarluca will call the action with pre-game coverage beginning at 6:50.

This is the first of six regular-season games that will be broadcast every Friday night during the football season.  Presented by Jersey Mike’s and Brielle Orthopedics at Rothman, SSN LIVE is also sponsored by the Lester Glenn Auto Group, Atlantic Physical Therapy Center, Surf Taco, and Carl’s Fencing, Decking and Home Improvements.
