Summit Youth Football Report: Hilltoppers Win Four of Five, Including Big Win for Undefeated Seventh Graders

Summit Youth Football took home victories in four of five games last weekend, including the Fifth Grade's win over Scotch Plains.
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.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

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 ...
