Schmitz Steers Madison to 27-13 Victory over Hackettstown


MADISON, NJ - The blustery drizzle didn't impede the Madison varsity football team from continuing its winning ways on Saturday.

The Dodgers improved their record to 6-1 with a 27-13 victory over Hackettstown at home.

Quarterback AJ Schmitz scored all four touchdowns for Madison, including a pair when the Dodgers shut out their Warren County foes in the second half after going into halftime knotted at 13-13.
