CASEYS SOAR LB AS BULLDOGS FALL TO SJV

In local high school football action Friday night, undefeated Saint John Vianney of Holmdel continued its 2016 juggernaut with a 28-3 win at Rumson-Fair Haven, which fell to 3-2. 

Meanwhile, on the road against Long Branch, Red Bank Catholic went to the air to produce a 35-20 win that improved the Caseys’ record to 4-2. Third-string quarterback Nick Brusca found his groove as a thrower, tossing his first — and second, third and fourth — touchdown passes of his varsity career while racking up 206 air yards.
