SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - The Vikings dominated the Edison Eagles 42-7 to earn its first home win of the season on Friday night.
The Eagles came into South Brunswick simply not ready to play whatsoever.
From start to finish, the Vikings man-handled them in every aspect of the game.
"It was never a football game.  They embarrassed us right from the beginning," Edison head coach Matt Fulham said. "We played nervous and did not execute all around."
The Vikings kicked off the scoring on the very first drive of the game.
Quarterback Josh Liao connected with wide receiver Felix Quinones on a quick slant route.
On what was supposed to be a quick throw and reception, Quinones broke free for a long touchdown to go up 7-0.
On the ensuing Edison drive, South Brunswick's Justin Shorter intercepted a pass over the middle to re-gain possession.
The Vikings drove the ball down the field to gain good field possession and ended up converting again on about a five-yard touchdown run.
South Brunswick wasn't done.
The Vikings added two more touchdown conversions.
Liao connected with Quinones again for a 69-yard reception along with about a 40-yard throw to Shorter.
Edison added a touchdown on a short run, but South Brunswick took a 35-7 lead into the half.
Liao discussed his first half offensive production.
"I mean it's just making the reads, being instinctive and making good throws," Liao said. "We practice all week doing different types of routes, and it's great to see everything work out."
The Vikings came out in the second half and didn't take their foot off the pedal.
They pounded the ball down Edison's throat and it was Quinones, converting again, on a short five-yard run to put the score at 42-7.
Quinones had quite a night racking up three touchdowns.
South Brunswick's offensive output forced the clock to run consistently which ended the game quickly in the second half.
Head coach Joseph Goerge was very pleased with his team's victory after losing the first two home games.
"I wish I could tell you we planned on scoring 42 points tonight," said Goerge. "This was a critical game in our season and for our seniors, they were hungry for a win at home."
After tonight Edison falls to 1-2-1 while South Brunswick improves to 2-2. Both teams will play next Friday, Oct. 14.
