WARREN, NJ -The Watchung Hills Jr. Midgets defeated the Spring Valley Hornets 22-19 and improved to 5-0 on Sunday. The hard hitting hornets kept the Wolverines off the scoreboard until the fourth quarter when Watchung Hills took over and scored 22 unanswered points to win the game.  
 
The first Wolverine touchdown was set up by a great interception by Sean Dillon.  Connor Cook had a 20 yard run off tackle where he picked up great blocks from Dylan Capparelli and Mikey Fornaro. Andrew Reale then ran in the touchdown from 12 yards out picking up key blocks from Declan Kazan, Christian Rowan and Justin Uberoi.  The Wolverines regained possession of the ball on an on sides kick by Owen Kovacs which was recovered by Cook.  Quarterback Matty Colantuono connected with Patrick Stefurak on 20 yard touchdown.  The third and final touchdown for the Wolverines came after another successful on sides kick by Kovacs  recovered by Reale.  Watchung Hills drove down the field with great runs by Jack Taub and  Reale behind awesome blocks from Captain Anthony Tomaro.  The touchdown came on a 20 yard run by Connor Cook where he got great blocks from Adam Claxton, Charlie Everhard, Chris Hu and George Rooks.
 
 
The Wolverine defense struggled early but settled down after giving up points on 3 big plays.  The defensive line of Adam Claxton, Marc Daas, Matt Drews, Isaiah Parker and George Rooks kept pressure on the elusive hornet quarterback all day.  Claxton, Daas, and Rooks all had tackles for losses.  The linebackers  Cook, Kovacs, Reale, and Taub hit the Hornet running backs hard and kept them out of the end zone in the second half.  The secondary of Matt Colantuono, Joey Denave, Sean Dillon, Mario Martino, and Patrick Stefurak blanketed the Hornet receivers holding them to 2 catches all game.  Colantuono knocked down a key pass late in the game to preserve the win.  The Wolverines go on the road next week to face the Sayreville Leprechauns in Sayreville.
