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
