SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The Dayton football team looks to bounce back in search of its second win of the season as they visit Hillside Saturday afternoon for a 1 p.m. kickoff.

Senior Antonio Salcfas scored all four TDs and threw for a 2-point conversion for Dayton, raising his team-leading TD total to 12.
The Bulldogs will begin a stretch of three of its last four games away from Mountain Avenue as they visit county foe Hillside at Conant Street Park with scheduled first kickoff slated for 1 p.m.
Hillside (3-2) saw its three-game win streak snapped last Friday night, losing at Johnson, 22-13, as sophomore Nahree Biggins and senior quarterback Tajae Irby each had a rushing TD for Hillside in the loss.
Since 2014, Hillside is 2-1 against Dayton including a 47-0 triumph on Oct. 14th last season. Dayton’s lone win was by forfeit in 2015 and Hillside won at home, 12-7, in 2014.
“We're playing hard and had two really good games back-to-back,” said Salcfas. “To come out of the Brearley game with a loss was disappointing, but we're staying positive knowing we have three tough final weeks ahead. The team is still amped and ready to go!”
Dayton is 0-3 on the road this season.
