Bears Suffer Road Loss at Edison


EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick High School Bears football team suffered another tough defeat on the road, as the size, speed, and physical play of Edison High School proved too much for the Bears, who lost by a score of 41-0.

It looked during the first couple of offensive drives that the Bears might have an opportunity to exploit the Eagles' secondary, as quarterback Kevin Hemmings completed a couple of long passes to wideout Javon Ganzaroli, but both drives stalled with the Bears being stopped in Eagles territory on fourth down. The game was more or less decided when Eagles quarterback James Waldron started completing passes all over the field, resulting in two long touchdown passes before the first quarter was over. One pass was for 43 yards and the other for 75 yards. 

The second quarter saw the Eagles mount a long, time-consuming drive that ended in a short scoring pass by Waldron. The extra point was missed, and the Bears went into the locker room trailing, 20-0. The Eagles ended any doubt about the outcome when running back Kyle Boyer-Tucker blazed through the Bears defense untouched for a 60 yard scoring run midway through  the third quarter, extending the lead to 27-0.

Despite a strong effort by Bears QB Hemmings, the Bears offense simply has not been able to mount consistent drives on offense in the past couple of games, as a series of miscues and penalties consistently left the offense with 2nd and long and 3rd and long plays throughout the game. The defense, having been left on the field for far too long, simply wore out again, and the Eagles scored twice more in the fourth quarter to close the game out.

The Eagles moved to 4-3 with the victory, while the Bears dropped to 1-6.

The Bears have two games remaining on their schedule.  Next Friday November 8 at Piscataway, and then the Thanksgiving weekend traditional game against Old Bridge, the Battle of Route 18.
