East Brunswick Bears won an impressive victory over the Marlboro Mustangs spoiling the homecoming celebration for Marlboro. East Brunswick started the scoring with a 2 yard run by quarterback Kevin Hemmings and an extra point kicked by Alex Boyko. Marlboro answered with a 14 yard pass from Mike Wolff to Dewann McAllister but missed the kick to stay a point behind. Marlboro was then able to take a lead on a Mohammed Omar run but they failed on a two point attempt. East Brunswick pulled back into the lead with an 11 yard Kyle Wiggins run and an extra point to make the score 14-12. Marlboro was driving near the end of the half but on 4th and long, #6 (pictured below) for the Bears intercepted the pass and returned it for about 15 yards.
The second half was all East Brunswick. Lots of big plays on offense and the defense was very stingy as well. Kevin Hemmings threw a long pass to Sean O’Sullivan who evaded tacklers and dashed in for a 55 yard touchdown. Not long later, Kevin Hemmings ran through traffic and just managed to dash past the last defenders to score on a massive 79 yard run. The final score of the game was a short pass to Joe Chetta in the end zone to make the score 35-12. At this point the cheerleaders gave up on doing push-ups and switched to jumping Jacks! East Brunswick was even able to give some backup players a chance.
It was all a really great game and it keeps the Bears playoff hopes alive.
