Eighth Grade Summit Football Aims For Perfect Season, Title Win in NJSYFL 'Super Bowl' Nov. 20

Summit defended their 'house' in the conference championship and is now off to face Kenilworth in the NYSYFL 'Super Bowl'.

SUMMIT, NJ - After grinding out a tough 8-6 victory over Bloomfield, the Summit Youth Football Eighth Grade Team is headed back to the New Jersey Suburban Youth Football League (NJSYFL) title game.

In the 'Super Bowl', the Hilltoppers will face a familiar foe -- Kenilworth -- an opponent who will have revenge on their minds. Summit beat the Bears 46-19 in last year's Seventh Grade 'Super Bowl'. Both teams enter the contest undefeated.

Against Bloomfield in the conference championship, Summit found itself behind 6-0 in the second quarter after a yielding a touchdown on a long pass play. It would have been 8-0, but the successful Bengals extra point was wiped off the board due to a illegal formation call, and the next attempt failed, which turned out to be the numeric difference in the game.

Two possessions later, Summit broke through the Bloomfield line and galloped for a 60-yard score, then covered the PAT to take an 8-6 lead.. From there, Summit's defense bent a bit -- but did not break -- and showed their steel by twice stopping Bengals drives inside its own 10-yard line.

The NJSYFL 'Super Bowl' will be played November 20 at Bloomfield's Foley Field, with kick-off set for 2 p.m.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
