Spotswood Football Defeats Middlesex to Remain Undefeated


SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Spotswood High School took the football field for its first home game of the 2016 season, christening new bleachers. Home and away fans had been sitting in the same bleachers since the school first opened its doors in the late 1970s. With all the scoring done in the first half, the Chargers kept their unbeaten record in tact, beating Middlesex High School, 14-3.

Ryan Szatkowski opened the scoring for Spotswood in the first quarter, catching a 13-yard pass from quarterback, Nick Mohr. He later connected on the extra point to give the Chargers a 7-0 lead. Middlesex cut the lead by three in the second quarter on a 37-yard field goal by Matt Semon. Jack Keenan scored the second TD of the game for Spotswood in the second quarter on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Mohr. Szatkowski also connected on the extra point, giving Spotswood a 14-3 lead. The two TDs would be all the Chargers would need as both teams defenses took over in the second half.

Mohr was 9 for 17 for the afternoon, passing for 157-yards and throwing two touchdown passes. Keenan had 14 carries for 57-yards rushing. He also caught three passes for 46-yards. Szatkowski was the top point earner in the win with nine. The senior also caught four passes for a total of 65-yards.

Spotswood will take its 3-0 record to Dunellen on Friday, September 30 to play under the lights. They will hit the field against Dunellen High School for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
