Two more sectional championship trophies were up for grabs on Saturday, plus two more Non-Public semifinal games were held. Check back throughout the night for all of the action!
Don Bosco Prep 10 St. Joe’s (Mont.) 8 | Non-Public Group 4 Semifinal
Don Bosco Prep continues to raise eyebrows in North Jersey with their stellar defensive play. The Ironmen have now won five straight games, holding their opponents to 14 points or less in each of those contests. Arsheen Jiles’ 40-yard fumble return touchdown in the second quarter was Don Bosco’s only trip to the end zone. The Ironmen staved off a late two-point conversion inside two minutes to secure the win. Don Bosco Prep will face St. Peter’s Prep in the Non-Public Group 4 state final at MetLife Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 7:05 p.m.
