RANDOLPH, NJ - The Gaels traveled to Randolph on Friday to take on their football foes, the Rams, and Stephen Loreng stole the show. The senior scored three touchdowns, one being an 87-yard, record-breaking score, as the Gaels handed Randolph a 42-7 trouncing.

As night fell on a cool Friday, is was the time of year to renew the heavily awaited Roxbury-Randolph rivalry. Randolph also celebrated homecoming, so it was a big game for both squads.

Despite the hype, the game started slow for both teams. It was not until 4:40 were left in the first quarter that senior Grant Dixon was able to scramble out of the pocket and find Loreng wide for the 87-yard touch pitch and catch.

The play was a Roxbury record for longest passing play, beating the previous record of 80 yards set early in the season by the same duo.

From then on out, the game was all Roxbury. The defense of the Gaels stood strong against the Ram offense. Senior Brandon Yaw took care of business up front in the trenches as he disrupted the Randolph backfield.

Both seniors James Roberts and Jack Clevenger each grabbed one interception to give Roxbury the ball back with a short field to play and the offense, with the great field position of turnovers, took advantage. Loreng corralled three touchdown passes over the course of the game.

The Gaels were sitting on a 28-0 lead at the half and nothing stopped them in the second. The team showed no mercy to their cross-town rivals. Roxbury would go on to add two more touchdowns before the game was all over.

When the clock hit zero the scoreboard read Roxbury 42 and Randolph 7 as the Gaels won the rivalry game and can keep their bragging rights until next year. The team’s final regular season game is on Friday, Nov. 6 when it travels to Parsippany Hills to battle with the Vikings.
