EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - It was a rough Thanksgiving game for the East Brunswick Bears as they lose the final game of the season 49-0 to the Old Bridge Knights.

Even though EB couldn’t pull out a victory it was a special last game for the Seniors especially the captains, James Schuld, Jack Solimini, Ryan Crocco, and Christian Tarnofsky. Other Seniors include Danny Homnick, Rey Torres, Josh Safeer, Jacob Bauman, Damien Ruiz, Zahir Jackson, Tommy Iannacchino, Abdullah Mohamed, Mahmoud Sekeen, Dan Maldonado, Ramon Diaz, and Ammar Abbasi.

The Old Bridge Knights torched the Bears with the run game and East Brunswick had no answer for it. In the first quarter, a big run setup the Knights in the red zone. The drive was capped off by rushing touchdown from the quarterback to take an early 7-0.
