After recapturing their mojo with a blowout victory on homecoming weekend last Friday, South Brunswick High School will look to continue their winning ways on the road Friday night.
The 5-1 Vikings will travel to Middletown North High School tonight to take on the 1-4 Lions. SBHS will look for its second straight win after suffering their first loss of the season in a 47-14 loss at Piscataway two weeks ago. The Vikes rebounded at home with a 35-7 win over JP Stevens last Friday.
"This was a challenge game," said South Brunswick Head Coach Joe Goerge. "We had to see how the team would react after last week. Adding to the challenge was the fact JP Stevens scored on its first possession. The guys responded."
After JP Stevens struck first to go up 7-0, the Vikings answered the challenge by not allowing another point the rest of the way. SBHS scored on four of their first five possessions.
TJ Taylor scored two touchdowns on a blocked punt return and 44-yard reception, while TJ Perkowski and Dion Hooper also added touchdowns for the Vikings.
Middletown North has gotten off to a rough start at 1-4. They share one common opponent with SBHS, having lost to Old Bridge 27-6 on Oct. 5. The Vikings defeated Old Bridge 27-21 on Sept. 21.
The action will kickoff at 7 p.m. at Middletown North, located at 63 Tindall Road in Middletown. SBHS will be back home on the 26th to face Sayreville. That night will also feature the retirement of the jersey number formerly worn by current NFL player Mohamed Sanu, who was once a standout at South Brunswick.
