NORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - Naji Campbell rushed for three touchdowns and threw for two to lead the North Plainfield football team over Voorhees on Friday night’s Senior Night Homecoming game, 40-16.
“I’m very proud of the way our kids came out and played tonight,” said North Plainfield head coach Jimmy DiPaolo. “We executed well on offense and defense and had a lot of different players step up and make big plays. It’s great to give our seniors a win on Senior Night. Many of them have put in a tremendous amount of time and effort into the program and it was great to see them enjoy the victory on their special night.”
Jah’Quan Allen and Jordan Bird each caught a touchdown pass and Gavin Jones scored the other rushing touchdown.
North Plainfield led from the start. After the first TD’s 2 point conversion was no good, the Canucks bounced right back with an onside kick leading to another quick TD. The 2-point conversion was stopped and the early score was 12-0. North Plainfield never trailed and took a 21-0 lead into the half.
Friday’s game was the last home game this season. The North Plainfield varsity football team has an away non-conference game at Dover on Friday, Oct. 18.
