St. Joe’s (Mont.) 24 DePaul 17
After beginning 2018 1-1 St. Joe’s (Montvale) faced arguably their toughest opponent of the season in just Week 2 when they squared up with DePaul Catholic. The Green Knights got a rematch of last year’s Non Public Group 3 State Final in which they lost 10-7. This time around SJR’s defense was a turnover machine and with Junior quarterback Michael Alaimo under center and a late game interception from Jimmy Ciarlo Jr. they came out victorious against the number three ranked team in the state. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez was there for all the action:
Penns Grove 19 Paulsboro 6
The rematch of the South Jersey Group 1 finals didn’t go as planned for the reigning champions Paulsboro. Penns Grove caused four turnovers and soundly moved the ball all afternoon en route to a 19-6 victory over Paulsboro. SNJ Today’s Mike Frankel has all the highlights:
