The South Brunswick PAL Pee Wee football team continued its winning ways on Sunday, defeating the Manasquan Blue Warriors by a final score of 38-7. It was the Pee Wee's third straight win to start the season.
The Vikings took the opening kickoff on their own 40, and needed only four plays to start the scoring. The 60-yard drive included carries by QB Matthew D'Angilillio and Jahmiq Johnson, and was capped off by a 40-yard run from Jason Briggs.
Manasquan threatened on their first possession of the game, taking the ball down to the Vikings 14-yard line, when Briggs intercepted a pass and returned the ball 90 yards for the game's second touchdown. That was all the scoring the Vikings would need, but the offense went back to work on the next possession.
Michael D'Amato led the way, pounding the ball on the ground behind the blocking of Nick Campigotto, Patrick Rogers, and Kevin Sweeney. QB Luke Johnson capped of the 55-yard drive with an 8-yard bootleg run for the third touchdown of the game.
With less than one minute remaining in the half, Kyle Gruver executed a perfect onside kick and the Vikings recovered the ball at midfield. It took only one play for the Vikings to score when D'Angilillio threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to Jahmiq Johnson to end the first half.
The Vikings added two more second half touchdowns, including an outstanding run from Amori Spence, playing in his first game with the Vikings.
The Vikings defense continued to dominate opponents with Jake Manuel, Freddie Offenburger, Luke Johnson, and Thomas Kushnir leading the way for South Brunswick.
The Vikings play divisional opponent and perennial powerhouse, the Trenton Tornadoes, in next Sunday's game.
