SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Colonia running back Matt Croteau ran for 133 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Patriots to a 35-6 win over Scotch Plains-Fanwood at Tyson Field on Saturday.
Sophomore quarterback Josh Oluremi hit receiver Kenny Shinski on a 50-yard pass scoring strike and also had a 1-yard touchdown run for Colonia, which seemed to move the ball at will during the first half. Meanwhile, the visitors' defense had Raiders quarterback Hayden Widder on the run, resulting in three interceptions for the visitors.
Shawn Martin ruined the Patriots' shutout by scoring on a 2-yard touchdown run for the Raiders.
Scotch Plains-Fanwood ended its first campaign under coach Austin Holman at 4-5, a marked improvement over the past few seasons when the team failed to win a regular season game.
