Madison Dodgers Use Ground Game to Run Tigers Back into the Cage, 48-7

October 6, 2012 at 2:51 AM

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ - “We take pride in our run game,” Coach Kubiak said following Madison’s 5th win of the season over Hackettstown. The victory marked the 29th straight win for the Dodgers, dating back to the 2009 NJSIAA playoffs. The Dodgers used a dominating run in Friday night’s dominating 48-7 win over Hackettstown. The Dodgers rushed for six rushing touchdowns, two of which came from Senior RB/WR Justin Goodwin. Goodwin would give the Dodgers the lead after he took the handoff and took it 60 yards for the game’s first score. He would then cap off Madison’s next scoring drive with a 10 yard run to put the Dodgers up 14-0. The Dodgers and Goodwin would score yet again, this time off of an 18 yard fade pass from Senior QB Carson Lassiter.

The second quarter would see the Dodgers continue to dominate on the ground as they broke off two long runs, the last of which saw Senior RB Shone Register take the handoff and scamper 24 yards into the endzone to make it 28-0 with 10:56 left. The Dodger defense was on top of their game as well, allowing only 93 yards on 31 carries for a paltry three yards per carry. They also forced QB’s Connor Schull and Donte Monaco to a combined 2 for 7 passing, 44 yards, and one interception. Kubiak stressed that, “Our MO is to stop the run and force the other team to be one dimensional.”

The Dodgers would end the half with two more scoring runs from Lassiter who scored from six yards out and then broke off a 65 yard run to extend the Dodger lead to 42-0 as the half ended. Lassiter credited the play of his offensive line saying, “Our line is young and Hackettstown has a good defense, but they handled it really well, and that was the reason behind our success.”

Struggling offensively all day, the Tigers looked to catch the Dodgers off guard as they opened the half with an onside kick attempt. The Dodgers would not be fooled, however, and would score on the ensuing possession as Junior RB Vito Luppino would break off a 33 yard run to extend the lead to 48-0.

Hackettstown had few bright spots on the evening, one of which came when Senior Greg Castillo recovered a fumble in the red zone. Castillo also had 48 yards on two receptions. The Tigers offense would continue to stall as they would not cross into Dodger territory until there was 6:15 left in the game. The Tigers would get their lone score of the game with 3:05 left after Junior RB Joe Puccetti ran it in from 33 yards out.

The Dodgers look to extend their winning streak to 30 games next week when they take on Jefferson Township.
