South Jersey Football Games of the Week
Besides the Haddonfield at Camden game on Saturday, here are some of the other top South Jersey high school football games this week:
 
Friday
Woodrow Wilson (1-0) at Cherokee (1-0), 6 pm. This is a game featuring defending sectional champions, Woodrow Wilson in SJ Group 3 and Cherokee in Central Jersey Group 5. Wilson opened with a win over another defending sectional champion, Shawnee, 34-27. Junior linebacker Damir McCrary recorded four sacks for Wilson. Cherokee opened with a 42-7 win over Pennsauken as Brandon Boria scored three touchdowns, two on runs and another on a 37-yard pass from Billy Osborn. 
 
St. Augustine (0-0) at Millville (0-1), 6 pm. This will be the opener for St. Augustine, expected to be among the top teams in South Jersey. Millville opened with a 27-22 loss to another top South Jersey team, Hammonton. In that game, Millville got off to a quick start taking a 14-0 lead into the second quarter on a 20-yard TD pass from Nate Robbins to Ti-yon Cephas and LaQuint Allen’s 9-yard run. Hammonton then scored 27 unanswered points. St. Augustine recently added a game at the end of the season on Nov. 25 against Lenape, which should be one of the season’s top matchups. 
 
Williamstown (1-0) at Kingsway (1-0), 7 pm. Both teams opened with impressive shutouts, with Williamstown defeating Timber Creek, 21-0 and Kingsway blanking Highland 35-0. Williamstown is the two-time defending SJ Group 5 champion and has the look of one of the better teams in South Jersey once again. Williamstown should have one of the top defenses in the area, but has explosive personnel on offense. Brody Colbert caught a 14-yard TD pass from Doug Brown. Keon Sabb, a transfer from Glassboro and one of the better juniors in South Jersey, scored on a 3-yard run and Turner Inge added a 2-yard run. If Williamstown scores 21 points, the Braves will likely win a lot of games because the defense is dominating. Kingsway’s Ben Maiers threw for nearly 300 yards and three TDs in the opening win over Highland. 
 
West Deptford (0-1) at Willingboro (0-1), 7 pm. Both teams are looking to bounce back from opening losses after. Each had a great 2019 season, with West Deptford going 9-2 and winning the WJFL Colonial Division and Willingboro going 12-1 and winning the Central Jersey Group 1 title and then beating Penns Grove, 50-14 in the South-Central Group 1 game. West Deptford opened with a 17-16 loss to rival Haddonfield. The Eagles got off to a quick start, taking a 16-3 lead third quarter lead over Haddonfied on a safety, a 32-yard run by quarterback Aaron Graeber and a 27-yard run by J’Covi Williams

Collingswood (1-0) at Haddon Heights (1-0), 11 am. The is a rivalry among Colonial Conference teams. Collingswood opened with a 34-14 win over Sterling, its former Thanksgiving rival. Haddon Heights was an opening 42-0 winner over Gateway as Zyaire Goffney-Fleming scored three TDs, on two runs and a 62-yard punt return. These two teams haven’t played since Nov. 9, 2017 when Collingswood scored a 40-33 win. This could be another high scoring affair.
