South Jersey Football Games of the Week

South Jersey Football Games of the Week
Besides the Winslow Township vs. Woodrow Wilson game, which is our Game of the Week, here are some of the other key games in Week 3 of the South Jersey football season:
Camden (1-1) at Shawnee (0-2), 6 pm. Shawnee is the three-time defending South Jersey Group 4 champ and has s deceptive record. Both losses were to quality teams by a touchdown. The Renegades lost 34-27 to two-time defending South Jersey Group 3 champ Woodrow Wilson and last week, 20-13 to a vastly improved Washington Township team. (Shawnee did score on the game’s final play to make the final score closer). The Renegades are still looking to get their running game in gear, but Matt Welsey, who threw two touchdown passes against Washington Township, is one of the better quarterbacks in South Jersey. Camden bounced back from an opening 15-12 loss to Winslow Township, to score a convincing 34-7 win over Haddonfield. Jalin Brownlee threw three TD passes, including two to Syracuse commit Duce Chestnut. 
Hammonton (2-0) at St. Augustine (0-1), 6 pm. Both teams have one common opponent – Millville. Hammonton opened with a 27-22 win over the Thunderbolts, while St. Augustine lost last week to Millville, 22-21. Hammonton, the defending Central Jersey Group 4 champ, is coming off 27-6 win over Vineland. Jayden Abrams, among the top running backs in South Jersey, rushed for 175 yards and three touchdowns against Vineland. Leading 21-14, St. Augustine allowed a Millville touchdown and two-point conversion midway though the fourth quarter for the winning points. Junior running back Kanye Udoh, who scored a touchdown against Millville, is a big-play threat for the Hermits.
Penns Grove (1-1) at Delsea (0-1), 7 pm. Delsea has long been one of the top programs in South Jersey. From 2012 to 2017, the Crusaders appeared in six straight South Jersey Group 3 championship games, winning five. Delsea is coming off a 3-6 season and the Crusaders opened with a 15-12 loss to Timber Creek, which remains among the better programs in the area. Penns Grove is a two-time defending South Jersey Group 1 champ. The Red Devils opened with a convincing win over Woodstown, but lost last week to another of the better Group 1 teams around Salem, 35-14. Even this is misleading because the score was tied at 14-14 before Salem scored three touchdowns in the final five minutes. Penn Grove’s Nasir Robinson remains among the better running backs in South Jersey.

Washington Township (1-0) at Kingsway (1-1), 7 pm.
Washington Township surprised Shawnee in its opener 20-13 as Jo’Nathan Silver scored on runs of 42 and 32 yards and Damon Wiseburn kicked field goals of 30 and 32 yards. Coming off consecutive 3-7 seasons, coach Mike Schatzman’s Minutemen seem to be vastly improved. Kingsway opened with a 35-0 win over Highland and then lost last week, 13-6 to Williamstown, among the best teams in South Jersey. Nicholas Tanzolas kicked two field goals of 37 and 28 yards and the score was tied 6-6 at halftime. Williamstown scored the game-winning TD in the third quarter.
