Mount Olive 13 Morristown 7 | Super Football Conference
This clash between the Marauders and Colonials featured a pair of undefeated teams who have played tough defense all season. Mount Olive (4-0), however, made the right adjustments to capture this win. Their defense held Morristown (3-1) to only 43 total yards on 53 plays with zero points. Jekori Zapata and Tyler Cumming accounted for both Mount Olive touchdowns in the win. Jasiah Brown’s 80-yard pick six was the long score for Morristown in the loss.

Sitkowski found Brayden Kelly twice and David Dubas once more as Watchung Hills (4-0) continued their perfect start to the year. The Piscataway transfer has 15 total touchdowns in four games. Morris Knolls (1-2) leaned on special teams and a run-first attack to build an early 14-0 lead and got a boost from Patrick Bershefski’s pick-six just before halftime.
