Just five days after an upset loss in the Central Jersey Group 1 semifinals, Shore Regional ends its season with a 14-7 win over rival Rumson-Fair Haven on Wednesday night.  The Blue Devils are now 3-0 in the Shore’s newest Thanksgiving rivalry.  Watch the highlights and see all the matchups for Thursday

Shore Regional 14 Rumson-Fair Haven 7

Matt Pennell’s 7-yard TD pass to Nick Rew early in the 4th quarter was the difference as Shore Regional made it three straight wins over RFH.  After a scoreless first half, Mark Russo got the Blue Devils on the board in the 3rd quarter with a 7 yard TD run.  Bulldogs starting QB Michael O’Connor played the first half and turned things over to backup Jack Volker in the second.  Volker put together a drive capped off by an Alex Maljian 1-yard score late in the third to draw the game even at 7.  With ten minutes to go in the 4th, Pennell floated a pass to the end zone that was wrestled between Rew and a defender.  The ball fell down and into the waiting arms of Rew on his back in the end zone.  Jack McRae added a late interception to seal the win.  Shore’s season comes to an end, but Rumson is still in the hunt for a fourth straight sectional title when they take on South Plainfield on Saturday, December 3rd at Rutgers at 7:00 p.m.  Watch the highlights and post-game reaction from Shore’s win here:
