Summit 7th-Grade Football Team Beats Sparta, 19-0, Reaches Title Game

The Summit offense racked up 195 yards rushing en route to their 19-0 win over Sparta.  The 7th Grade team, seeking to repeat, moves on to the NJSYFL title clash versus Richmond Boro November 24.

SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Seventh-Grade Football team reached the New Jersey Suburban Youth Football League (NJSYFL) title game for the second consecutive season, beating Sparta, 19-0, at Pope John XXIII Regional High School.  The defending champion Summit team will take on Richmond Boro Nov. 24 at Old Bridge High School in Matawan, as they bid to become back-to-back NJSYFL "Super Bowl" Champions.  Kickoff is set for noon.

In a physical encounter, Summit scored the only points of the first half as Jack Kelly took a reverse around the left side for 38 yards that set up a 3-yard touchdown run by Tyrone Hines.  In the third quarter, Jackson Tyler hit Marshall Wiesner, who out leaped two Sparta defenders in the right corner of the end zone, for a 10-yard touchdown and a 13-0 lead.
Summit's final points came at the beginning of the fourth quarter, when Hines ran through the left side for a 24-yard score. Tyler finished with 93 yards on 15 carries, while Hines ran the ball 14 times for 58 yards and two touchdowns.  Summit finished with 195 yards rushing, and their defensive line harassed Sparta's backs all game.  
George Johnson and Ethan Nankervis applied heavy pressure leading to a Michael Jarmolowich interception, and a 16-yard return deep in Sparta territory.  Another series saw Sparta's quarterback under intense pressure by Peter Nicoletti, Dom Yorio and Nankervis, leading to a Tyler interception and 10-yard return.  Jarmolowich also made a key tackle on a fourth down conversion, one foot shy of a first down at the Summit 30-yard line, Sparta's deepest penetration of the game.  Sean Doherty also had a fumble recovery for Summit, which improved to a perfect 10-0 this season, and has never lost a game as team since their formation in the fifth grade.
