Wall beats Rumson-Fair Haven, Squan falls to RBC


Saturday, Sept. 14

Red Bank Catholic 7, Manasquan 0

The Manasquan football team put together a valiant effort against one of the Shore’s top programs, but the Warriors fell by the score of 7-0 to Red Bank Catholic on Saturday.

Big Blue’s defense was on display all afternoon against the Caseys, holding the visiting team to just one touchdown late in the third quarter.

Manasquan tried desperately to tie the game in the fourth but was unable to sustain drives with any consistency.

Wideout Jack Collins made two spectacular grabs on Saturday, one over the head of a Casey defender and another with his fingertips on the sideline. He should be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses moving forward.

The Warriors will travel to Red Bank Regional this Friday night looking to earn their first win.

Wall 14, Rumson-Fair Haven 3

The Wall football team stamped itself as one of the premier programs in all of the Shore Conference after a 14-3 win over Rumson-Fair Haven on Friday night.

The Knights’ defense was absolutely sensational, holding a high-powered Bulldog offense to just a field goal the entire game.

That field goal came off a possession in which Rumson started inside the Wall red zone, making it all the more impressive. 

Logan Peters connected with Charlie Sasso for the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter and then Peters ended the game with a 28-yard scamper that put the Knights ahead 14-3 with just over two minutes left.

With the win, Wall improved to 2-0, while Rumson dropped to 1-1.
