ROSELLE, NJ - The Roselle Rams ended their undefeated football season on Saturday afternoon when they faced the Manasquan Warriors in the NJSIAA Central Jersey, Group 2 semifinals.

The Warriors opened with a scoring drive but the Rams answered back with two touchdowns in a row with one failed 2 point conversion making the score Roselle 13 - Manasquan 14. Manasquan was unable to get a first down but intercepted immediately after turning possession over to Roselle with 6 min. to go in the second quarter. Manasquan answered back with a field goal, leaving the score at halftime Roselle 13 and Manasquan 17.

Late in the third quarter Roselle was able to recover a fumble on their own 17 yard line and scored, making it 21 to 17. However, Manasquan was able to answer back right away in the fourth quarter making it 21 to 24. With 10:03 remaining in the fourth, Roselle tried to run on a 4th and12 but did not make it, turning the ball over to Manasquan on their own 23 yard line.
