H.S. Football Games of the Week--Part II Here are more of the top South Jersey high school football games this week.

Collingswood (5-1) at Willingboro (5-2), Friday, 7 p.m.
Both of these teams are angling for a South Jersey Group 2 playoff berth. The winner of this game should earn berth, while the loser could also get in. This will be Willingboro's final game before the playoff cutoff, since only a team's first eight games count for playoff consideration. Collingswood has won five in a row since an opening loss to Haddonfield. Willingboro has also won five in a row after last week's 33-0 victory over Bordentown. Junior quarterback Trae Greene has completed 66 for 106 passes for 913 yards and 10 TDs. He has only thrown two interceptions.

Oakcrest (5-1) at Highland (5-1), Friday, 7 p.m.
Oakcrest is angling for a SJ Group 3 playoff berth while Highland is a contender in SJ Group 4. After losing its first game of the season, 26-6 to St. Joseph, Oakcrest beat Lower Cape May, 35-14 last week. Highland has won four in a row since a 28-8 loss to unbeaten Cherry Hill West.

Penns Grove (4-2) at Woodbury (4-2), Saturday, 10:30 a.m.
These are two South Jersey Group 1 contenders. The winner should earn a berth while the losing team could also be a playoff team. Penns Grove junior Samej Moore has rushed for 722 yards (8.1 avg.) and 11 TDs. Woodbury also is a ground-oriented team. The Thundering Herd has won two in a row following last week'd 40-14 win over Lindenwold.

No. 15 Burlington Twp. (6-1) at Pemberton (5-2), Saturday, 11 a.m.
Both figure to be South Jersey Group 3 playoff teams whether they win or lose this game. It's the final game that counts in the playoff seedings for both teams. Pemberton senior Joe Benson has completed 63 of 144 passes for 1,121 yards and 12 TDs. Since a loss to Allentown, the Hornets have won two in a row. Burlington Township has won four in a row since a 20-3 loss to unbeaten Lenape. Township senior Drew Price has rushed for 637 yards (6.1 avg.) and 10 TDs.

No. 16 Delsea (4-3) at Woodrow Wilson (4-2), Saturday, noon

Wilson, which is coming off a 21-14 win over Triton, will face Cumberland (1-5) at the cutoff. Wilson has a balanced rushing attack with four players having rushed for 137 or more yards.
