In the end, a missed point-after-touchdown, lost fumbles and a swarming Eagles defense made the difference in the 14-13 outcome, with the Eagles now 4-0.

Across the river at Count Basie Field, Red Bank Catholic played host to Colonia, and quickly established dominance on a fumble recovery that led to a one-yard TD. Third-string QB Nick Brusca was dominant, posting three running TDs. Final score: 35-0.

As previously reported, the Holmdel v. Red Bank Regional game scheduled for Friday at Little Silver was postponed due to illness on the Holmdel squad.
