Millville Sends Message, Downs Union at “Battle at the Beach”

The marquis game from a weekend of football at the inaugural “Battle at the Beach” showcase in Ocean City pitted two of New Jersey’s top public school programs – and the top recruits from those respective schools – against one another in a 31-28 thriller just blocks from the Atlantic Ocean.

Syracuse commit LeQuint Allen led Millville with 113 yards and a rushing touchdown but it was freshman Lotzier Brooks stole the show. Only 14 years old and playing in his first varsity game, Brooks scored on a 65-yard kick-off return touchdown and burned the Farmers defense with an 86-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter.

Rutgers commit Davison Igbinosun shined for Union in the loss – he had an interception and his physicality set the tone to a tough, hard-nosed game all night long.
