Delsea, West Deptford grind out a classic
Delsea and West Deptford are two of the most decorated public-school programs in New Jersey and they’ve both done it relying on versions of the Wing-T/Triple Option at a time when many teams are transitioning to spread, no-huddle offenses. Elite backs Aidan Borguet of Delsea (pictured above) and West Deptford’s Kenny Lim combine for over 250 yards on the ground and the teams pass for less than 75 yards in the air in a stellar old-school shootout of traditional powerhouses.

Elizabeth breaks Linden’s spell
Linden made big news last week by upsetting Westfield, 14-7, to snap its state-leading winning streak at 37 games. But the Tigers’ streak-busting days may be over (at least temporarily) when they attempt to put an end to Elizabeth’s modest two-game streak Friday night in Elizabeth. Elizabeth is hot off a 28-14 victory over Union, a team that defeated Linden, 14-7, on opening night. Javon Wactor (pictured above, No. 7) rambled for 252 yards and three touchdowns and QB LeShane Taylor ran for 148 yards and a score to pace a steady ground game for Elizabeth in that victory. The defensive contributions of Jesiah West, Tasim Hicks and Zahir Gordon could be troublesome for star Linden running back BJ George.
