SPOTSWOOD, NJ - After rolling off five straight victories to open the 2016 football season, the Spotswood High School varsity football team's streak was halted on Saturday, October 15 by Point Pleasant Beach High School, 31-12. After a back and forth first half, the Garnet Gulls opened up the game, scoring 14 unanswered points to put the game squarely out of reach for the Chargers.

Spotswood quarterback Nick Mohr started off the scoring for the Chargers with 4:59 remaining in the first quarter on a one-yard scoring run after ten plays took them down the field. Point Pleasant struck back in the second quarter to even the score at seven on a 39-yard touchdown run by Jacob Clement. Ryan Szatkowski would give the Chargers a 10-7 lead on a 35-yard field goal. However, the lead didn't last long. The Gulls' Luke Frauenheim connected with Connor Kells on a 70-yard touchdown pass to take a 14-10 lead with a little more than four minutes remaining in the half. They extended that lead to 17-10 with only four seconds remaining in the half on a Sean Gould field goal.

Spotswood cut the lead to five with a two point safety in the third quarter. The two points would be the remaining ones for the game for the Chargers. Point Pleasant Beach put the game out of reach with a 14-point fourth quarter, stopping the Spotswood's win streak at five.

The loss drops Spotswood's overall record to 5-1 on the season. They remain undefeated in conference play with a 4-0 record. On Saturday, October 22, the Chargers will take on Bishop Ahr High School at the Spotswood High School Stadium. Kickoff is 1 p.m.
