WOOD-RIDGE, NJ - Nino Iacovino ran for three first half touchdowns as Wood-Ridge jumped out to a 29-0 halftime lead en route a 37-6 win over Bogota Friday evening at Donna Ricker Field in Wood-Ridge in a NJIC Patriot Division game.
Following scoreless opening drives by both teams, Wood-Ridge quarterback Nino Iacovino broke past the defenders for a long run of 51 yards on a draw. Following the point-after, the Blue Devils were up 7-0 in the first quarter.
Early in the second quarter, the Blue Devils defense got on the board, when Bogota snapped the ball over the head of punter-quarterback Gabriel Nunez and out the back of the end zone for a two-point safety to put Wood-Ridge up 9-0.
Midway through the second quarter, Iacovino scored on a 22-yard quarterback keeper to extend the lead to 16-0 following Reiter’s extra point.
Isaiah Walker ran for a 54-yard touchdown to increase the lead to 23-0 with little over a minute remaining in the first half.
The Blue Devils put the game away in the second quarter, recovering the ensuing onside kick. This would set Iacovino up for his third rushing touchdown, and following a missed extra point, a 29-0 halftime lead.
Taking the ball to start the fourth, Iacovino rolled out to his left and hit Michael Sarlo in the corner of the end zone. The extra point saw a botched direct snap to Sarlo, but Sarlo would account for the mistake, taking it in for two-point conversion. The score would jump to 37-0.
Bogota broke onto the scoreboard with the game’s final score, with running back Janiel Ortega punched it in from 10 yards out following a six-minute drive,
Bogota drops to 0-2 as Wood-Ridge improves to 2-1.
