MADISON, NJ — Just one year removed from their State Championship win over Rutherford, the Madison Dodgers will look to go back-to-back after beating the Hanover Park Hornets on Saturday Nov. 19 that punched their ticket to the State Finals.

It’s been a fun but rough ride so far for the Dodgers who have gone 10-0 on the season, but have been plagued by injuries ever since day one. From the countless nights in the weight room, practices after school, and film sessions, the team has really showed their toughness and grit.

“All those long days are really tough sometimes,” Defensive Back Ryan Schmitz said. “But we push each other to be the best of our ability and that’s why I love this team."

Madison will play Lenape Valley in the NJSIAA State finals, a team they beat 45-42 on the first game of the season. Arguably their toughest game of the season, the Dodgers had to comeback and score a touchdown with little time remaining in the fourth quarter to squeak out the win.

After their loss to Madison, the Patriots went on to win nine straight games. Both teams have obviously grown and figured out more about themselves since the first game and expect each team to be at their top level come game day.

“This has always been the goal since day one,” Schmitz said. “Before the season we knew we were capable of getting back here."

The Dodgers will have a week to practice, rest, and get ready for their Friday Night Showdown against the Patriots on December 2nd 5p.m. at MetLife Stadium, Rutherford.
