Watch SSZ Thanksgiving Highlights Show

We’ve got six games of action in our Thanksgiving edition of SSZ football highlights.  Watch two games that went down to the final seconds as well as Middletown North ending a 16 year losing streak to crosstown rival Middletown South

A special thanks to the team at Shore Sports Zone for spending time away from their families so they could bring you another great highlights show.  Here’s what we have on our Thanksgiving highlights:

  • The streak is over.  Middletown North had not topped rival Middletown South since the year 2000. Watch highlights and post-game reaction of the Lions 24-6 win at home over the Eagles
  • Wall made it three straight over Manasquan on Thanksgiving thanks to a 177 yard effort on the ground from Sean Larkin.
  • Long Branch wins the 94th edition of their rivalry game with Red Bank Regional in a 27-0 shutout.  See Keith Cooper dazzle on Thursday morning
  • Raritan scored on offense, defense and special teams in a 44-14 win over Holmdel
  • Lakewood needed a last second touchdown to score a 28-24 win at Toms River South
  • Neptune’s Chase Fairbanks scored on a two point conversion with 1:15 left to give the Scarlet Fliers a 7th straight win over Asbury Park

Coming up this weekend – Thanksgiving Game Ball vote and Plays of the Year!

Game Ball

On Friday morning, we’ll have our final regular season Game Ball vote of the year.  We’ll post nominees from all the great playmakers from Thanksgiving football and keep the polls open until Sunday and the winner receives a Monmouth Building Center Game Ball.  On Monday morning, we will present the Top Plays captured by our cameras in 2016.  The voting goes throughout the week and the winners will earn an invite to the 3rd annual Shore Sports Zone football banquet.  Thanks to everyone for voting all year long.
