BUCS TO FACE DAWGS FOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Undefeated Red Bank Regional continued its dream football season Friday night, winning on the road against Ocean Township and advancing to the Central Jersey Group 3 final game, where its opponent will be Rumson-Fair Haven.
Syracuse-bound RBR wide receiver Sadiq Palmer scored all three Bucs touchdowns and had an interception in the 21-14 win. As usual Shore Sports Zone has all the highlights on video.
RBR hasn’t reached the final game since 2003 and hasn’t won a sectional championship since 1975.
Meanwhile, defending state champion Rumson-Fair Haven, playing at home, bested Matawan, 24-13, setting up a Battle of Ridge Road that pits the top-seeded Bulldogs against the third-seeded Bucs in two weeks.
