EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - An early fourth quarter touchdown, and an overall dominant final quarter lifted the South Brunswick High School Vikings to a decisive 21-0 victory over the East Brunswick Bears at Jay Doyle Field on Friday night. 

In a chippy defensive battle marked by three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties on the Vikings, the difference proved to be the Vikings' ability to capitalize in the red zone. On the other hand, the Bears had three chances inside the Viking 20 in the game, and failed to score on any of those possessions.

Bears quarterback James Schuld spent a good deal of the game scrambling away from trouble, as the Bears offensive line struggled to give him time to throw.  The size difference between South Brunswick's defensive line and the Bears offensive line was evident throughout, and by the fourth quarter of this hard fought game, fatigue set in. On the opposite side of the ball, the Bears gamely hung in throughout, but were unable to come up with the key play to cap off long drives.

Bears running back Kyle Wiggins, who came into the game with an assortment of injuries, was held to 16 yards rushing, leaving QB Schuld to pick up much of the slack. Vikings QB Josh Liao was steady throughout, passing for 107 yards and spearheading a solid and consistent Viking offense, despite the defensive war that existed for the first three quarters. Running back Jaylan Lawson had 77 yards on the ground.

With the loss, East Brunswick fell to 1-4 on the season, with a game against Edison (1-3-1) upcoming on Friday night. South Brunswick improved to 4-3, with a game against Sayreville forthcoming.
