BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Devil Dogs defeated the Leather Necks, 28–17, Thursday in the 7th Annual Basilone Bowl, held at Basilone Field, in Bridgewater.

The game is played in honor of late Marine John Basilone, a decorated hero of WWII awarded the Medal of Honor and Navy Cross for valor and heroism in the Pacific at Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima, where he was killed.

Senior football players from every school in the county, and Delaware Valley, are chosen to play as part of either the Devil Dogs or the Leather Necks in a final football game near the end of the school year.
