MANASQUAN FALLS TO JACKSON MEMORIAL

Manasquan fell to 1-1 on the season, losing to Jackson Memorial 26-0.

It was a night when even when the Warriors did things right they went wrong against the Jaguars.

Manasquan blocked a pass at the line of scrimmage on the first possession of the game for Jackson Memorial, but instead of an incomplete pass or a Warriors interception the pass deflected into the arms of a Jaguars offensive lineman who fell for a first down.

A little later in the first quarter Manasquan intercepted a pass in its own end zone when the Warriors started to return the interception out of the end zone they were penalized for a block in the back and Jackson Memorial was awarded a safety.

The Jaguars took a 2-0 lead and never looked back.

Manasquan will travel to Point Pleasant Borough on Friday.
