Undefeated Red Bank Regional won its first postseason football game in years with a 30-0 shutout of South Plainfield at home Friday night. Shore Sports Zone caught all the action on video.
But first up on the SSZ reel: defending state champion Rumson-Fair Haven, playing at home, routed Rahway, 43-6 in Central Jersey Group 3. Bulldogs quarterback Mike O’Connor ran for two touchdowns of 50-plus yards.
Just west on Ridge Road in Little Silver, the RBR Bucs played a methodical game on the ground that saw standout wide receiver Sadiq Palmer score two running TDs and running back Alim Godsey another. Palmer also scooped up a fumble on defense and ran it in for a score. The highlights start at 3:37 on the SSZ reel.
Up next: on Friday night, the Bucs face Ocean Township — which was seeded second in Central Jersey Group 3, despite having lost to to RBR 16-6 in the third game of the season.
The Bulldogs next take on Matawan, at home, and the winner of that game will face the winner of RBR-Ocean for the Group 3 championship. (Video courtesy of Shore Sports Zone)
