Nutley Raiders Defeat Livingston Lancers in 2015 Homecoming Football Game


LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Nutley Maroon Raiders defeated the Livingston Lancers 43-22 at the Livingston High School homecoming game on Oct. 16. Ending the traditional LHS Homecoming Spirit Week, the LHS student body held an in-school pep rally in anticipation for the homecoming game, dressing in their class colors and cheering on each of this season’s athletic teams.

During the homecoming game, Livingston Senior Jowan Sandiford recovered a run by Ryan Cardona and scored within the first quarter, which was the only Lancer touchdown until the third quarter. Going into halftime, the Raiders led the Lancers 29-8.

Prior to the traditional cheerleading and marching-band halftime performances, the Big L Club dedicated and presented its 2015 All-Sports Journal to former Livingston Athletics Director Patrick Genova and his wife, Carol. The Lancer cheerleaders dedicated a chant to the longtime Livingston employee who retired after 14 years of service to the public school district.

“This game was important because it was the homecoming game and because the Big L Club dedicated the fall sports journal to Mr. Genova,” said retired Livingston Public Schools teacher and Big L Club member Rich Shue. “We pick somebody each year for it and he did so much for Lancer Athletics.”

The Lancers headed into the second half down by 21 points. The Raiders scored again late in the third quarter, bringing the Nutley lead to 36-8. Livingston Seniors Derrick Hoskins and Kyle Rosenbaum both scored toward the end of the game with kicks by Matt Laken and Ryan Cardona, leaving the final score at 43-22.

The Lancers play Irvington on Oct. 23 on the home turf, where the Livingston Football Parents Association will once again host a drop-off point for donations to the fifth-annual Livingston Coat Drive. According to coat-drive organizer Jeff Friedman, the coat drive has grown in leaps and bounds since the LFPA joined the cause and the LFPA encourages Lancer fans to help them keep the “poor, homeless and disenfranchised” warm.
