East Brunswick won their season home opener against Edison with great support from the ‘Bear Den’. Early in the game, Kevin Hemmings threw a 36 yard touchdown pass to Sean O’Sullivan to put East Brunswick up by 7 after the extra point. Edison drove down the field and scored on a 3 yard run by Haaziq Daniels to tie the game, but their happiness was short lived when Brandon Tomori raced 90+ yards on the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown. The Bears went into half time with a 14-7 lead. In the third quarter, Edison scored again on a 16 yard run by Andre Yates, but East Brunswick blocked the extra point which turned out to be the margin of victory.

East Brunswick brunswick played tough against North Brunswick but couldn’t keep up with the North Brunswick Raiders. North Brunswick scored first on a one yard run by Max Emmanuel. The extra point put the Raiders up by 7. East Brunswick responded and moved smartly down the field with several nice passes from Kevin Hemmings to Sean O’Sullivan, Aidan Werder and Sam Walker. Finally what seemed like a third down touchdown by Sam Walker was ruled down at the 1. So Kevin Hemmings ran in a quarterback sneak for the score. Unfortunately for the Bears, a missed extra point was followed up by a 92 yard kick return for a touchdown by Rex Thomas for North Brunswick. The Raiders poured it on then with two more touchdown passes to Joe Castellanos from Kevin Poindexter. At the end of the half the Bears were threatening, but couldn’t quite score. In the third quarter, Sean O’Sullivan scored a touchdown on a 26 yard pass from Kevin Hemmings, but it was too little too late.

East Brunswick High School football team joins in fight against hunger | NJ.com

Last month members of the East Brunswick High School football team ran a successful offense against an opponent bigger than any they might encounter on the field: Hunger.

The summer months are typically a slow time for the Middlesex County Food Outreach Organization Distribution Services and for the second year in a row the football players stepped in to help fill the food void. The players collected 6,000 pounds of food, nearly twice what they collected the year before, by first distributing bags to hold donations to households throughout town and then returning on a designated day to collect them.

"East Brunswick is just a very caring community," said senior Sean O’Sullivan, who helped spearhead the team’s summer food drive. "I think the team was much more on the ball, so everything went more smoothly."

EAST BRUNSWICK — Coming off a shocking 9-0 loss to J.P. Stevens in its last regular-season game and a 24-0 defeat at home to Hunterdon Central in the opening round of the NJSIAA Central Group V playoffs, the Old Bridge High School football team still had something important to play for on Thanksgiving Day.

The Knights were seeking their first Greater Middlesex Conference Red Division title in their 20-year history with a win against East Brunswick in the Battle of Route 18.

Behind 269 yards rushing from its offense and a defense that forced one turnover and recorded four sacks, Old Bridge rolled to a 35-6 win over the Bears in the 20th edition of the Thanksgiving Day rivalry.

East Brunswick had a tough season opener against South Brunswick at home on 9/7/2012.  The weather was good and the “Bears Den” has gotten huge this year which made things fun at the game.  Recovery of an onside kick at the start of the second half was exciting and there were some very nice defensive stands in the second half.
