Rich Chrampanis and the video cameras of Shore Sports Zone got to seven rainy games in Monmouth and Ocean counties Friday night, starting at Middletown South, where the Eagles hosted Rumson-Fair Haven in a matchup of unbeaten 2016 state champs. 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.
