On a night when South Brunswick High School retired the number of one of the greatest athletes in school history, the football team came up short against their toughest opponent to date.
The Vikings lost at home to undefeated Sayreville Friday night by a score of 28-14 after a hard fought battle. With a 14-7 halftime lead, SBHS let up 21 unanswered points in the 4th quarter in a heartbreaking loss to the 8-0 Bombers. SBHS retired the jersey of former Vikings standout and current Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu at halftime.
Dahrae Ford and T.J. Perkowski both scored for SBHS in the losing effort, as Ford finished with 11 carries for 41 yards and a touchdown. Perkowski added 54 rushing yards and one touchdown for the Vikes.
T.J. Taylor notched 4 receptions for 46 yards for SBHS.
The Vikings will head into the state playoffs with a record of 6-2. The final regular season game will be the annual showdown with 2-7 North Brunswick on Nov. 22.
