South Jersey Football Games of the Week

 Some South Jersey high school football teams are moving past the midway point of the regular season high school football season. With the season moving quickly, here is a look at this week’s top games.


Winslow Township (3-1) at Camden, (2-2), 6. Winslow Township has won three in a row since opening with a 26-14 loss to Woodbridge. Camden’s two losses are to Salem, 22-20 and to Holy Spirit, 34-8. Spirit is among the top teams in South Jersey. Camden senior Nazir Dale is a potential game-breaker. He has rushed for 275 yards (5.1 avg.) and one touchdown. Junior Hamin Anderson has 15 receptions for 239 yards and two touchdowns. Winslow Township senior quarterback Hamas Duren is having an outstanding season. He has thrown for 871 yards and 13 touchdowns and rushed for 130 yards (9.3 avg.) and two scores.

Haddonfield (2-1) at Willingboro (1-2), 7. After opening with wins over Pleasantville and West Deptford, Haddonfield fell to a quality Woodrow Wilson team, 44-21 last week. This is a key WJFL Colonial game for Hadonfield which is 1-0 in the division with a win over West Deptford. Willingboro lost its only Colonial game to Delran and would realistically have to win to stay in the division hunt.

St. Augustine (3-1) at Millville (3-0), 7. This WJFL American Division matchup is the South Jersey game of the week. Millville had a bye last week following a 49-39 win over a talented Shawnee squad. Senior quarterback Nate Robbins has throws for 716 yards and seven touchdowns for the Thunderbolts. Running back Lequint Allen has rushed for 569 yards (8.2 avg.) and six touchdowns. After losing its opening game to Archbishop Spalding of Maryland, St. Augustine has won three in a row including last week’s impressive 24-7 triumph over St. Joseph.

Audubon (3-0) at Camden Catholic (1-2), 7. This is a key WJFL Constitution game. Audubon owns the longest current win streak in South Jersey, nine games. The Green Wave have beaten two of the expected contenders in the Constitution, Cinnaminson, and last week Haddon Heights. Junior quarterback Scott Lynch has thrown for 495 yards and seven touchdowns. Sophomore Derrick "DJ" Bryant has rushed for 245 yards and six touchdowns. Camden Catholic is 1-2 but has played a tough schedule, with losses to Winslow Township and Pennsauken.


Woodrow Wilson (2-1) at Cedar Creek (4-0), noon. Wilson is coming off an impressive 44-21 victory over Haddonfield. The Tigers lone loss was a 32-30 defeat to Winslow Township. Wilson quarterback Devin Kargman has thrown for 845 yards, eight touchdowns and no interceptions. Kargman will be facing a Cedar Creek defense that has yet to allow a point. The Pirates have outscored teams 185-0. Cedar Creek senior Jojo Bermudez is one of the most electrifying players in the state. He has caught 21 passes for 563 yards (26.8 avg.) and six touchdowns. Quarterback JC Landicini has thrown for 1,018 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Salem (4-0) at Paulsboro (2-1), noon. This is a key WJFL Diamond Division game. Salem opened with a 22-20 win over Camden and since then has three straight shutouts. Paulsboro’s loss was a 6-0 defeat to non-division rival Woodbury, but the Red Raiders had a major 21-20 Diamond Division victory two weeks ago over Penns Grove. Senior Ameer Bateman has rushed for 277 yards (5.4 avg.) and two touchdowns for the Red Raiders.
