SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – South Plainfield junior quarterback Patrick Waldrop made a great first impression in his initial varsity start, throwing three touchdown passes and rushing for another to lead the South Plainfield Tigers to a 41-12 thrashing over the Bishop Ahr Trojans of Edison.

South Plainfield controlled the game from start to finish, scoring on their first two offensive plays of the game and forcing five turnovers on defense.

Waldrop got the Tigers offense revved up right from the start of the game. He connected with senior Kyle Dickerson on South Plainfield’s first play from scrimmage for a 50-yard touchdown pass.  After a fumble recovery by South Plainfield’s Jean Sapini, Waldrop once again connected with Dickerson on a 24-yard pass play for a TD that put South Plainfield up 13-0.

Waldrop had this to say about his first start:

South Plainfield increased its lead to 20-0 on a two-yard touchdown run by Dickerson with 2:23 left in the first half.  Dickerson’s touchdown run capped a 13-play, 65-yard drive by the Tigers. It was Dickerson’s third touchdown of the half. During the Tiger touchdown drive, Waldrop connected with Dickerson for a first down on third-and-14, and another first down on fourth-and-12. The Tigers took a 20-0 lead into the half.

The Tigers took the opening kick of the second half, and scored quickly once again. This time it was a short screen in the flat from Waldrop to Tiger running back Jason Lee.  Lee shook off a couple of tacklers and raced 61 yards for the touchdown, increasing South Plainfield’s lead to 27-0.

Bishop Ahr got on the board next when the Trojan’s Timothy Howard returned the ensuing kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown. That put the score at 27-6 Tigers.

Waldrop extended the Tigers’ lead to 34-6 on an 18-yard TD run on a broken play from scrimmage midway through the third quarter. Late scores by Bishop Ahr’s Andrew Brazicki and South Plainfield’s Zaire Cone put the final score at 41-12.

“Patrick did a great job at quarterback tonight," South Plainfiel coach Gary Cassio said. "He allowed us to use all of our weapons and we had a good rotation at the running-back position. We didn’t play a complete game tonight, but we played well.”
