BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Anthony Goffe had 34 carries for 211 yards and two touchdowns to lead Bridgewater-Raritan over Watchung Hills  in the first round of the North Jersey, Section 2, Group 5 Tournament on Friday night, 41-0.

“It’s not the way we wanted to end the season, we lost to a good football team last night,” said WHRHS head coach Rich Seubert. I’m proud of my team for the way we fought back this year. Starting 0-5 and finding a way to win 4 in a row to make the playoffs is a special season. I’m proud of all the seniors for what they have meant to this program.  We started something special here at WH and we plan to improve on it next year.”

Watchung Hills rallied from an 11-point deficit with three unanswered touchdowns in the second half to defeat Ridge, 31-21, in the regular-season finale for both teams last Friday night to get to the playoffs.

“Congratulations to Coach Seubert, his staff, and all our football Warriors on a terrific season!” said WHRHS Director of Athletics Chris Van Vliet. “Their hard work, commitment, and team unity were evident throughout the season. Making the state playoffs for the first time in several years was special, and the future looks bright for Watchung Hills football. We are excited for what’s to come and wish our seniors well. “

”Nobody is born a warrior.
You choose to be one when you refuse to stay seated.
You choose to be one when you refuse to back down.
You choose to be one when you stand up after getting knocked down.
Thank you Warriors for a season we will never forget.
Be proud, stay strong, and continue to lead with your hearts,” The Watchung Hills TDC posted on Saturday.

Bridgewater-Raritan will go on to face the winner of Piscataway vs Bayonne in the semifinal round scheduled for Nov. 17.
