Watch our preview and then scroll down to watch all seven games from Saturday captured by JSZ cameras.
DePaul 16 St. Peter’s Prep 13
DePaul backup quarterback Johnny Amodeo got the start against St. Peter’s Prep after Ta’Quon Roberson was sidelined with an ankle injury. Against the odds, Amodeo led the Spartans to an upset win against St. Peter’s Prep after nearly a week of double preparation and practice. JSZ’s Jay Cook has the highlights from one of the best stories so far from the 2018 football season:
St. Joe’s (Met.) 27 Westfield 18
After dropping their first game of the season St. Joe’s (Metuchen) made some adjustments on offense moving receiver Michael Cardinalli to quarterback. Since beginning 0-1 the Falcons have won four in a row, their latest victory came against No. 18 Westfield. Following a tie at halftime St. Joe’s was able to pressure the Blue Devil offense and force two interceptions from quarterback Hank Shapiro. Then Cardinalli put up 3 touchdowns in the second half.
