Bears Earn First Victory of 2013 Season

September 27, 2013 at 11:53 PM

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick High School Bears rode the running and defense of John Gearhartz, and the stewardship of QB Kevin Hemmings to a hard-fought 14-12 victory over the Raiders of North Brunswick.

Gearhartz ran for 133 yards and a touchdown , and could have had more if not for a couple of holding penalties that negated runs of 51 and 67 yards. Hemmings passed for a key second quarter touchdown, and controlled the ball at key moments that helped the Bears maintain possession during another key second quarter touchdown drive. 

The Bears took a 14-6 lead into the half, and then had to survive a series of penalties and a botched snap on a punt in the third quarter, which lead the Raiders to their second score of the game, cutting the lead to 14-12. The Bears were able to fight off a furious last minute Raiders drive, the game essentially ending when Gearhartz, also playing on defense, intercepted a pass near the Bears' end zone.
