Everyone loves a good appetizer! JSZ has a pair of Thanksgiving Eve games to hold you over until the main course on Thursday!

Absegami 42 Oakcrest 14

The Braves jumped on the Falcons from the start, thanks to Jordan Marcucci’s 70-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to open the game. Sophomore QB Ray Weed had a night to remember, rushing for three touchdowns and throwing for two more. Weed’s TD tosses went to Marcucci and Jaden Stanley. Oakcrest QB Angel Casanova rushed for a touchdown and threw a TD pass to Sebastian Terrones in the loss.

Hakim Melvin turned in a great all-around performance, intercepting a pass in the second quarter and icing the game with a touchdown catch in the fourth.
