KENILWORTH, NJ - The Kenilworth Bears Seventh Grade Youth Football Team defeated Chatham 20-0 in the New Jersey Suburban Youth Football League (NJSYFL) semi-final playoff game last Sunday in Cranford.

The Bears entered the game as the number two seed playing number one seed Chatham. Kenilworth scored in the opening quarter on a 33-yard run and took a 6-0 lead after a failed conversion attempt. The Bears added to their lead in the second quarter on a 28-yard run and added the two point conversion to make the score 14-0.

Kenilworth's defense had to rise to the occasion and was able to halt Chatham's offensive drive, to go into halftime up by 14. After a scoreless third quarter, the Bears lead on a one-yard plunge in the fourth quarter to take the lead 20-0 after Chatham denied the extra point attempt. This would be the final score and the Bears record would become 7-3.
