CHATHAM, NJ - The sign that Nutley came to play for keeps came early. After scoring two quick touchdowns in the first quarter, the Raiders made an onside kick to regain possession and turned into a third touchdown.

Nutley kept its state playoff hopes alive with a decisive 49-7 win over Chatham on Homecoming at Cougar Field on Saturday.

"They were playing for a playoff berth at 3-3, so it was a big game for them," Chatham coach Jason Izsa said. "We were a little stunned by what they were bringing. They were not going to fool around today and let us stay in the game. They did what they had to do."
