After a two day delay, the Rumble on the Raritan showcase is back home at SHI Stadium on the campus of Rutgers University. JSZ has highlights from Bernards’ impressive win over division rival Hillside, plus a high-scoring shootout between Northern Highlands and Somerville. Stay tuned for all the action later tonight on Jersey Sports Zone!
Bernards 14 Hillside 7
The last time Bernards defeated Hillside was all the way back in Week Three of the 2016 season. For five years, the Comets have had the Mountaineers’ number. That all changed Sunday afternoon after Bernards produced 199 rushing yards on 55 carries and stifled Hillside late to secure the win. Game MVP honors went to Michael Leanza, who carried the rock 37 times for 150 yards.

Monmouth University commit Enzo Arjona finished with 295 total yards of offense and four touchdowns. Arjona was named the game’s MVP.
