South Jersey Football Games of the Week
Besides the Woodrow Wilson at Shawnee game that we previously previewed, here are some of the other South Jersey football games of the week:
Burlington Township (3-1) at Clearview (3-2), Friday, 7 pm. Clearview is coming off a 14-7 loss to Mainland. The Pioneers other loss was to Kingsway, 14-7 in double overtime in the opener for both teams. Burlington Township bounced back from a 27-6 loss to Moorestown to defeat Delsea, 20-6. Senior running back Rodney Vines Jr. has enjoyed an excellent season. He has rushed for 562 yards (7.9 avg.) and 7 touchdowns. Clearview senior Mike Ancona has rushed for 320 yards (5.2 avg.) and 4 TDs. He has completed 11 of 15 for 250 yards and 4 TDs.
Haddonfield (4-1) at West Deptford (4-0), Friday, 7 pm. This is one of South Jersey’s most intense rivalries. West Deptford had a bye last week. The closest game the Eagles have had has been a 31-14 victory over Paulsboro in the opening game for both teams. Haddonfield is coming off a 43-8 loss to St. Joseph, which snapped the Bulldogs 21-game win streak. QB Jack Narducci completed 10 of 14 for 146 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Haddonfield will be the underdog and stopping West Deptford senior running back Tyshawn Bookman will be the key. West Deptford will have to stop the Haddonfield ground game, keyed by junior Tommy Batson and senior Alex Kadar.
Paulsboro (3-2) at Woodbury (2-1), Saturday, 10:30 am. This is among the top rivalries in South Jersey. Paulsboro has lost to two teams that are major sectional title threats. The Red Raiders opened with a 31-14 loss to West Deptford, one of the main teams in Group 2 and 42-26 to defending South Jersey Group 1 champ Penns Grove. Paulsboro has had injury at the quarterback position and will likely have to rely on a strong ground game. Woodbury is coming off a 33-21 loss to Pennsville. Woodbury senior Andre Parker is among the better quarterbacks in South Jersey.
Salem (3-2) at Glassboro (3-1), Friday, 7 pm.  After losing its first two games of the season to Pleasantville and Cedar Creek, Salem has won three in a row by a combined 122-7 margin. Glassboro has won three in a row since dropping its opener at defending Central Jersey Group 1 champ Willingboro. One player to watch is Glassboro standout sophomore receiver-defensive back Keon Sabb, who has 26 receptions for 327 yards and five TDs. He also is averaging 4.0 tackles per game and has intercepted three passes.
Millville (2-3) at Timber Creek (3-2), Friday, 7 pm. Even though Millville is 2-3, the Thunderbolts are the No. 4 team in the South Group 4 power ratings according to That’s because Millville has played an overly difficult schedule, opening with losses to St. Peter’s Prep, St. Joseph Hammonton and Williamstown, three major state or sectional title contenders. Over the last two weeks Millville has defeated Kingsway, 30-20 and last week Cherokee, 20-14. Timber Creek is coming off a 21-17 loss to Black Horse Pike Regional School District rival Cherokee. The Chargers should be a major factor in South Group 3. Timber Creek sophomore Donovan Leary has completed 62.8 percent of his passes for 1,502 yards and 15 TDs.
