It was Kennedy's first appearance in the state playoffs in more than 20 years. The Knights are now 4-5 and look to finish with a .500 record with a win over arch-rival Eastside on Thanksgiving. Two years ago, the Ghosts were 4-5 heading into the Turkey Bowl and a Kennedy upset derailed their bid for a .500 record.

In other state playoff action, Ridgewood defeated Passaic Tech 31-18.
