Dayton (1-7), which has now lost four straight games with two straight forfeits, has one game left, at home in its season finale versus South Hunterdon on Friday, Nov. 4 with kickoff slated for 7 p.m.

If played, Dayton will be looking for its first home win in five tries.

Bound Brook, which is in first place in the division, improved to 6-1. Bound Brook’s final regular season game will be at Abraham Clark on Saturday, Nov. 5.

Last Saturday, Dayton forfeited its game at Abraham Clark in Roselle, due according to Springfield's Superintendent of Schools, Michael Davino, "Because of extent of njuries and team's experience, we could not field a team safely."  

Emails Thursday evening to Jonathan Dayton athletic director Lance Jacobs and NJSIAA Assistant Director Jack DuBois, who oversees the state’s football program, were not answered as of press time.
