WALL — The Wall football team had a tough challenge in its opening game of the season on Friday when the Crimson Knights hosted top ranked Red Bank Catholic.
The Caseys were playing their third game of the season and were in midseason form earning a 25-3 win over Wall.
The Crimson Knights best chance to gain momentum against Red Bank Catholic came early in the second quarter when they drove inside the Casey 5-yard line.
The drive stalled and Wall had to settle for a short field goal, which would be the Crimson Knights only points of the game.
The Caseys led 14-3 at the end of the first half picked up a safety and a touchdown in the second half to pull away from Wall.
The Crimson Knights will travel to Rumson-Fair Haven on Friday to face the Bulldogs who are 0-2 this season after losses to Toms River North and Donovan Catholic.
Boro overwhelms Warriors in second half
The Manasquan football team could not keep pace with Point Pleasant Borough quarterback Matt Oliphant who ran for over 200 yards and scored four touchdowns for the Panthers in a 39-13 win over the Warriors on Friday.
Point Pleasant Borough scored on its opening drive and never trailed against Manasquan.
The Warriors cut the lead to 7-6 on a Brett Patten 1-yard run, but Oliphant would score three touchdowns in the first half, including a 67-yard run up the middle just before halftime to give the Panthers a 20-6 lead.
Manasquan would get a big kickoff return from Marcus Valles and a 38-yard touchdown run from Jhamier Howard early in the third quarter to cut the Point Pleasant Borough lead to 20-13, but that was as close as the Warriors would get in the second half.
Manasquan’s next game will be on Saturday against Raritan at 1 p.m. at Vic Kubu Warrior Field.[more_cs+nw]
