Montgomery 22 North Hunterdon 8

Montgomery put its first tally in the win column Thursday night with a statement victory over a surging North Hunterdon team. The Cougars led 8-0 at the half, but turned the heat up with a memorable second half performance from senior Weber Karsay. Karsay scored a 71-yard touchdown, snagged a key interception and also collected as a timely sack late in the game.
