ROSELLE, NJ - Roselle firemen took the win extinguishing the hopes for the Roselle police in the annual “Turkey Bowl” football game fundraiser on Sunday morning by a score of 43 - 22.

Recreation Director Donald Shaw gave the audio play by play for the event, while the Roselle Rams Football team and Cheerleaders, Abraham Clark H.S. Band and Jr. R.O.T.C. and residents cheered on the two teams. 

There was a lot of fun spirited smack talking going on, but when it got down to playing the game, it was the firemen who scored first, and by half-time, Roselle fire continued their lead by a score of 19 - 6.
