SUMMIT, NJ - Playing from behind for the first time all season, the Seventh Grade Summit Youth Football Team stormed back after allowing an opening touchdown to beat Bloomfield, 38-13, and reach the New Jersey Suburban Youth Football League (NJSYFL) Championship game.

There the Hilltoppers, now 10-0 on the season, will face Kenilworth, who defeated Chatham 20-0 in the other semifinal.
After a scoreless first quarter, Bloomfield scored on a 30-yard run to go on top 7-0. Summit would come right back and never look back.
The Hilltoppers strung together a gritty 65-yard drive, which culminated in a 1-yard plunge and, after a successful two-point conversion, led 8-7.
On the next possession, a Bloomfield fumble and Hilltopper recovery gave Summit a short field. After "pounding the rock" all half, Summit used the aerial route to up their advantage. An 18-yard touchdown pass with a minute left in the second quarter gave the Hilltoppers a 16-7 lead at the break.
A key turning point came in the third quarter, when Summit forced a Bloomfield fumble on their own goal line. Instead of a touchdown that would have greatly narrowed the score line, it was a Hilltopper touchback and, from that play forward, is was all Maroon & White.
The offense scored on its next three possessions, and the defense racked up another turnover and numerous sacks and tackles for loss. Although Bloomfield tacked on a late score on a screen pass, it was way too little, much too late.
The NJSYFL "Super Bowl" will be held November 22 in Springfield, beginning at 12:30 p.m.
