East Orange 30 Clifton 24 (3OT) | North Group 5 Regional Championship
Ahmad Nalls scored a controversial 100-yard touchdown in the third overtime period to give East Orange (13-0) a perfect season. On 4th and goal from the 1-yard line, Clifton QB Kyle Vellis had the ball taken away from him by Nalls who initially thought the play was dead but proceeded to take off the length of the field. The Mustangs felt that Vellis broke the plane prior to the strip. The play went to video replay and was not overturned. The Jaguars got a 4-yard TD pass from Raden Oliver to Joshua Richards with :19 left to force overtime. Oliver and Richards hooked up again in the second overtime before Clifton tied the game at 24 on a 3-yard TD run by Bryan Feliciano.
