SPOTSWOOD, NJ - A missed two-point conversion would be the difference maker in Spotswood High School's varsity football team's homecoming win against Holmdel.
Holmdel would get on the scoreboard first when Aneesh Agrawai threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Steve Wailer in the opening quarter.
Spotswood would tie the game at seven in the second quarter when Marlon Hart caught a 44-yard pass from Shawn O'Connor. Holmdel struck back early in the third quarter on a 10-yard touchdown run by Matt Nuzzi. However, the Monmouth County team would only come away with six points after botching the two-point conversion.
The Chargers answered back with their own third quarter touchdown when O'Connor again connected with Hart on a 39-yard pass. Hart's touchdown would prove to be the game winner.
Ryan Szatkowski kicked both extra points for Spotswood. The second one would turn out to be an important point, giving the Chargers the 14-13 edge in the game.
O'Connor finished the day completing eight of 13 pass attempts for 166-yards, throwing for two touchdowns. Holmdel's Agrawai completed 16 passes on 29 attempts. Agrawai threw for 158-yards and one touchdown.
Spotswood's Joe Hayford rushed for 69-yards on 29 carries while James Liu also rushed for 69-yards on 14 carries.
The win moves Spotswood's overall record to 3-2. They remain undefeated in conference games with a 2-0 record.
Next week, the Chargers travel to South River to take on the rival Rams for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
