Pt. Pleasant Boro 32 Willingboro 8 | Group 2 South Final
Call them old-fashioned but the well-oiled machine of Pt. Boro’s (10-1) triple option has been a nightmare for opponents this season. Though Willingboro (8-4) got out to an early one-score lead after a 38-yard run from Bryson Bright, the Panthers stuck to their game plan and dominated the rest of the game. Junior Tyler Gordon scored three times on the night with two rushing touchdowns and an interception returned for a score, while senior quarterback Charlie Vitale threw for one touchdown and ran for another. Running back Jake Croce surpassed the 1000 yard mark on the ground for the season. Pt. Boro advances to play Haddonfield in the regional final.
