Brick Township 24 Ocean Township 12

Brick Township is now 4-1 after a near 300-yard night from Tyler Weisneck. The senior stuck with his season-long tradition of scoring on the first drive and ripped a 50-yard sprint for the opening touchdown, while AJ Grygiel made it an 8-0 game with a two-point conversion.

The Spartans scored on a 38-yard passing play from Tyler Douglas to Craig Flannigan. Ocean couldn’t convert the two-point conversion and trailed 8-6, but eventually stole the lead away from Brick in the second quarter using the same connection, this time for 56 yards.

Justin Kurc gave the Dragons back the lead in the finals seconds on an eight-yard run and the Weisneck two-point conversion put but Brick back ahead 16-12.


In the second half, Weisneck scored his second TD of the night on an 11-yard run and doubled down with his second two-point conversion for the final, 24-12.
