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!

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 QB Giaimo took a knee with seconds left after he interepted a pass in the end zone. The score was 14-0 at halftime.

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

Most importantly, no discredit should be given to Bridgewater-Raritan. They were able to move the ball well, but were victim to the totally unexpected harsh red-zone defense of Watchung Hills. B-R is a strong team, a large team, and any of their future opponents who take them lightly should not be surprised if they lose. Montgomery for example, who were also shut out last week by the Warriors, managed to score 30 points this week, so a WH/B-R rematch in the playoffs is not out of consideration.

Next up for the Warriors is Phillipsburg, also at home, this Thursday night.

Game of the week?
