Watchung Hills 35 Bridgewater-Raritan 0

WARREN, N.J. - Sept. 16, 2006 - The Watchung Hills Warriors avenged last year's 13-10 defeat last year to the Bridgewater-Raritan Panthers last night with a 5 touchdown performance in their home opener in Warren behind third-year starting Quarterback Joe Giamo, all-County first team Tight End Matt Hunt, and other offensive stars such as RB Rob Ritter and Rob Morrow combined with a punishing bend-but-don't-break defense that for the second week in a row held the opposition scoreless.

Four offensive touchdowns and a defensive interception returned for a touchdown sealed the deal for the Warriors. They scored on every offensive drive save in garbage time and at the end of the first half when Giamo took a knee with seconds left after he interepting a pass in the end zone. The score was 14-0 at halftime.

Much credit must be given to head coach Benedict as well as his decision to bring in Governor Livingston's former long-time head coach this year as his Defensive Co-ordinator, and of course to the boys themselves.

Next up for the Warriors is Phillipsburg, also at home, this Thursday night. Game of the week?

Go Warriors!
