ROXBURY - The Roxbury High School football team defeated Morristown tonight in the team's season opener.
The 28-20 win was somewhat historic in that it was Roxbury's 7th consecutive victory over the Colonials. Prior to the victory, six back-to-back wins was the most either team ever managed against the other.
Sticking it out after a brief rain storm - followed by a rainbow - Roxbury fans were treated to a tough battle in the trenches as Roxbury moved the ball forcefully. They cheered as Michael Roumes scored three touchdowns and Kevin Sembrat Jr. made one.
Gaels quarterback Donovan Brady threw for over 100 yards and ran 20 during the contest, bouyed by tough defensive plays by Anthony Perhacs. Other offensive standouts were Connor Mahoney and Evan Vazquez.
