After winning a nail biter last week over Monroe Township, the South Brunswick High School football team will stay home Friday for a battle against Old Bridge.
After a dominating week one shutout of East Brunswick (34-0), the Vikings went down to the final play of last week’s game before triumphing over Monroe 35-32. South Brunswick jumped out to a 28-3 lead in the first half before Monroe was able to close the gap.
Down 35-32 in the final minute, Monroe passed up a field goal and elected to go for the win from the 5-yard line. Fortunately for South Brunswick, a quick turn and slip brought the Monroe runner to his knee and the Vikings fans to their feet.
TJ Perkowski powered the Viking offensive attack with two touchdown passes and two touchdown runs. Rutgers bound Vikings star TJ Taylor hauled in both touchdowns receptions.
Amir Johnson helped key the SBHS win with a pair of huge interceptions to set up touchdowns.
Old Bridge comes to South Brunswick with a 1-1 record. The Knights opened the season getting slammed by Sayreville 35-0, but followed that up with a 21-20 upset win over Piscataway.
The action will kickoff at 7 p.m. at South Brunswick High School, 750 Ridge Road in Monmouth Junction.
