South Jersey Football Games of the Week

South Jersey Football Games of the Week
Besides the Salem-Penns Grove game, that is our South Jersey football game of the week, here are the other top South Jersey matchups in the final week before the postseason begins:
 
Williamstown (8-0, 4-0) at St. Augustine (5-3, 2-2), Friday, 6 pm. Williamstown would clinch the outright American Division title with a victory. The Braves are coming off a workmanlike 17-0 win over Shawnee. Williamstown has one of the top defenses in South Jersey, led by lineman Aaron Lewis, who is a Michigan commit. St. Augustine has played much better since several transfers have become eligible after sitting out the mandated 30 days due to NJSIAA transfer rules. Running back Kayne Udoh is one of those transfers, who has rushed for 338 yards (5.8 avg.) and a touchdown in three games. He is a transfer from St. Joseph. Since winning its closest game, a 28-21 triumph over Lenape, Williamstown has outscored teams, 115-7 in the last four games.
 
Camden (6-1, 2-1 WJFL Constitution) at Willingboro (7-1, 3-1), Friday, 7 pm. After an opening loss to Timber Creek, Willingboro has won seven in a row. The Chimeras would clinch at least a tie for the division title with a victory. Leading the way is Temple commit Chris Long, a senior receiver. Camden has won three in a row since an 18-14 loss to Delsea. Panthers junior Jalin Brownee has thrown for 798 yards and eight TDs. Sophomore Nasir Dale has rushed for 837 yards (11.6 avg.) and 9 TDs. This has a chance to be a true offensive showdown.
 
Paulsboro (5-2, 4-0 WJFL Memorial) at Gateway (6-1, 3-0), Friday, 7 pm. Paulsboro would clinch the outright Memorial title with a win, while Gateway, the defending champ, would earn at least a share of the title with a victory. The player to watch is Paulsboro junior Bhayshul Tuten, who has rushed for 761 yards (10.1 avg.) and 15 TDs. He scored five touchdowns in last week’s 41-6 win over Audubon. Gateway beat Paulsboro, 27-20 last year enroute to winning the division title. The Gators have won three in a row since suffering their only loss to Woodstown, 26-22.
 
Moorestown (4-4, 2-2 WJFL Liberty) at Clearview (6-2, 3-1), Friday, 7 pm. Moorestown is currently seeded 15th in South Group 4 according to gridironnewjersey.com. The top 16 teams will qualify for a berth after this week’s games. Clearview is currently seeded 11th. More importantly, this has division ramifications. Clearview is tied for first place in the Liberty with Highland and the Pioneers would clinch at least a share of the division title with a win.
 
Robbinsville (8-0, 4-0 WJFL Classic) at Haddon Township (6-1, 4-0), Saturday, 6 pm. This is such a big game that Haddon Township is renting lights and playing the game on its field. This is essentially a championship game with the winner earning the Classic Division title. Robbinsville, a Group 3 school, has allowed just 49 points this season. Haddon Township has won five in a row since a 42-7 loss to Buena. Haddon Township must contain Robbinsville senior Danny Surtz, who has completed 55.9 percent of his passes for 1,346 yards and 11 TDs. Sophomore Tien Siplin has rushed for 563 yards (5.8 avg.) and 10 TDs.
