The South Jersey Sports Report 10/18

Another Friday, another night of tremendous offensive showings from South Jersey’s best high school football teams.

Another four games ended with winning teams scoring 42 or more points, including Millville (49-10), St. Augustine Prep (48-7), and Bridgeton (43-0).

The big winner on our airwaves was No. 1 St. Joseph, which remains undefeated on the season with a convincing 42-0 win in Atlantic City.

Also this week:

The Buena Chiefs are 6-0 for the first time since 2008. Find out how they survived an overtime nail-biter against Mainland, and what pitfalls are left on their remaining schedule. (Note: Buena is ranked No. 11 in the Press of Atlantic City’s Elite 11)

Press of A.C. reporter Mike McGarry was at last night’s game in Buena, and tells us what is so special about the football atmosphere there this season. He also tells us which sub-.500 team will make the playoffs next month

St. Augustine Prep features one of South Jersey’s best running backs in Lamont Harris. We spoke with the sensational slasher about the best parts of his game, and which NFL running back he tries to emulate on the field

Another dynamic running back did his damage at the expense of Ocean City. Listen in to hear how Ryquell Armstead has assumed a leadership role in a dangerous Millville attack, plus another Cumberland County team that has the Thunderbolts in their sights
