SOMERSET, NJ - The Franklin Warriors dominated Montgomery 42-12 for their first win of the season, at Franklin High School Friday night. 

A win that was sure to be sweet revenge for many of the returning players and fans.

"This game was really personal, so we had the drive to get better, we worked hard every day and made them pay for 48 minutes," wide receiver Clayborne Fields III said.

Fields scored the Warriors first touchdown on a pass from quarterback Antonio Scott in the first quarter, with 8:11 left to play, to give the team a lead it would not relinquish. 

The Warrior offense was powered by Scott's four touchdown passes. Scott hit Fields for two touchdowns and another two went to Tykey Reinberry

Reinberry scored three touchdowns for the night. His first touchdown was a 65-yard catch from Scott and his second was a 68 yarder to end the half 28-6. 

His third touchdown was a back-breaking punt return to start the second half in the third quarter which gave the Warriors a 35-6 lead, that seemed to deflate the hopes of a Montgomery comeback. 

"When I scored I was just thinking about the team and about all of us and how the past few years everybody did not play as a team," Reinberry said. "This year when we all came back together as a senior class we sat down and spoke with one another and said we are going to play together and fight for each other as a team."

Reinberry is also up for athlete of the week for My Central Jersey.

The Warriors played a tight game throughout on the defensive side to help with the win. Early in the third quarter, the defense made two back to back fourth down stops.  

Running back Brandon Myers scored the last touchdown for the Warriors on a one-yard run up the middle late in the fourth quarter to put Montgomery away. With 1:58 left in the fourth quarter Montgomery scored a touchdown on a Ryan Furey pass to Carter McFadden

Last season the Warriors lost on the road to Montgomery 22-21 in a close game and last week they lost to Philipsburg on the road 47-13.

"The difference between this week and last week is the team stuck together, they fought hard head coach, John Paczkowski said. "I told them after the game last week you can learn more from a loss than you can from a win. But it is all contingent on your character, and their character showed through today like a true Franklin Warrior does. Tonight was a great atmosphere, the crowd was very supportive this is a great place to play."

This is coach Paczkowski's first year coaching the Warriors. 

The Warriors will host Westfield who are currently on a 27 game win streak at home Sept. 22, at 7 p.m.
