SPRINGFIELD, NJ - After losing its best player to injury last week, the Dayton football team looks to find a way Friday night as it visits Bound Brook for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

Last Saturday, senior quarterback Marvens Lormejuste threw for three touchdowns, junior running back Naseer Page rushed for two TDs, and senior running back Craig McCrae had seven carries for 113 yards and one score to power Roselle to a 61-0 victory over Dayton in its home finale on Mountain Avenue.

Senior Quraan Dixon added two scores for Roselle (5-2), which recorded its third straight shutout.

Senior do-everything Antonio Salcfas left the game in the first quarter last week with a season-ending injury and ended his stellar four-year career with 14 TDs this season.

“Antonio is a four-year letter winner for our team who has supplied major contributions on all sides of the ball. Potentially not having him would be a major blow to the team.  We however from day one have used a next guy up approach,” said Dayton head coach Dominic Cuniglio. “Sophomore Robert Spagnola has been taking snaps at the quarterback position all season long to prepare himself for this situation and will be ready to step in if need be.”

at Bound Brook

Bound Brook (6-1) enters Friday’s matchup on a three-game win streak, including a 41-34 road victory at Brearley last Friday. Junior David LePoidevin had four touchdowns and junior Mason Horsburgh added two scores for Bound Brook, which has not lost since a 14-12 road setback at Belvidere on September 29th.



Dating back to 2006, the Bulldogs are a respectable 5-6 against Bound Brook, but have lost two straight games in the series, including a forfeit last season.  The Bulldogs last win came at home, a 16-7 triumph, in 2014.

“Bound Brook is a very good team.  We have been preparing hard for Bound Brook and have had a few good days of practice. As a coaching staff, we are looking for the team to improve on the mistakes that we have made over the last few weeks,” said Cuniglio. “Cut down on turnovers, missed tackles, and missed assignments are the goals.  We feel as though if we can improve in those areas, the score and game will take care of itself.”

Dayton (1-6), which is 0-4 on the road, will play its final game of the season at South Hunterdon on Friday, November 3rd, also slated for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

2017 Dayton Football Results/Schedule: Sept. 8 – Belvidere, L, 14-17; Sept. 15 at Roselle Park, L, 41-6; Sept. 23 – at Manville, L, 42-6; Sept. 28 – Highland Park, W, 42-14 (Senior Night); Oct. 6 – at Brearley, L, 41-27; Oct. 14 – at Hillside, L, 51-8; Oct. 21 – Roselle, L, 61-0; (home finale); Oct. 27 – at Bound Brook, 7 p.m.; Nov. 3 – at South Hunterdon, 7 p.m.
