SUMMIT, NJ - Summit Youth Football continued its strong season, winning all but one of their weekend's games, with three of the squads holding their opponents to seven points or less. 

The Fourth Grade team remains undefeated after winning a hard fought battle against Scotch Plains, 12-7. Both teams played very well on defense, with Summit only giving up a lone touchdown to earn the victory.

The Fifth Grade team bounced back from last week’s loss to beat Scotch Plains, 19-6. Again, strong defense and a timely offensive attack put them back in the win column. The Fifth Grade team has the largest number of players of all Summit teams, at 35, and every player gets playing time.

The Sixth Grade team lost to Scotch Plains, 33-0. A handful of plays did not go Summit’s way, combined with a few costly turnovers, put Summit in a tough situation to bounce back from. While the team has yet to win a game, they continue to improve week to week, and the players are getting good experience learning the game of football.

The Seventh Grade team continued its undefeated streak, beating Perth Amboy 30-7. Early on it looked like it would be a back and forth offensive battle but, after scoring its first touchdown, Summit’s defense shut out Perth Amboy. Summit scored all of its points in the first half on four big plays -- three on offense, and one on the defensive side of the ball.

The Eighth Grade team came from behind to beat Scotch Plains 32-18. In a hard fought battle that saw both teams trade touchdowns throughout the game, Summit persevered in the fourth quarter to pull out the win. At 2-2 with four games left in the regular season, Summit is positioned well to potentially see post-season play.

Through the first four games, Summit High School Varsity Head Coach Kevin Kostibos has named the following Seventh and Eighth Grade players as Players of the Week:
 

Seventh Grade - Gary Lewis, Justin Liebhauser, Charles Wattick, Brock Froschauer, Brian Shea.

Eighth Grade - Christopher Waltzinger, Isaiah Golden, Joseph Lusardi, Duke Davison, Justin Luckshire.
 
This week all five Summit teams travel to Cranford to play the Cougars.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
