South Jersey H.S. Football Games of the week

 Most South Jersey high school football teams are playing division games this week and there are several key battles with the division up for grabs. Here are the top games for this weekend.

Friday

Cedar Creek (5-0) at Holy Spirit (3-1), 6. This is a key West Jersey Football League Memorial Division game between two teams that have designs of being the No. 1 team in South Jersey. Cedar Creek was finally scored upon after opening with four shutouts in last week’s 21-8 win over explosive Woodrow |Wilson. Senior quarterback Joseph Landicini has completed 64.6 percent of his passes for 1,225 yards and 13 touchdowns. Senior Jaquan Howard has rushed for 466 yards (9.1 avg.) and 10 touchdowns. Senior Jojo Bermudez has caught 28 passes for 660 yards and 6 touchdowns. Classmate Zachary Ricci has six receptions for 169 yards and 4 touchdowns. In short, this is an explosive team. Holy Spirit has won three in a row since an opening 28-7 loss to Maryland’s DeMatha. Spartans senior quarterback Trevor Cohen has thrown for 688 yards and six touchdowns. Junior Gavin Roman has rushed for 328 yards (5.3 avg.) and 4 touchdowns. Roman also has 10 receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown. Michael Weaver is a good change of pace back for the Spartans. 

Williamstown (3-1) at Shawnee (3-1), 7. Both teams trail St. Augustine by a game in the WJFL American Division, so the loser will be eliminated from realistic contention. Shawnee has won two in a row since a 49-39 American Division loss to Millville. Williamstown’s lone loss was 28-0 to St. Augustine. Both Williamstown and Shawnee should be playoff teams in SJ Group 5 and SJ Group 4 respectively. The key player to watch is Shawnee senior quarterback Matt Welsey, a dual-threat. He has thrown for 744 yards and 6 touchdowns and rushed for 289 yards and 10 touchdowns,

Penns Grove (3-1) at Woodstown (3-1), 7. Woodstown has won three in a row since an opening 6-0 loss to St. Thomas Aquinas. Penns Grove will be the toughest team that Woodstown has faced in this WJFL Diamond Division game. Woodstown is primarily a running team. Sophomore Jame47s Hill has rushed for 476 yards (8.1 avg.) and 4 touchdowns. Senior Austin Leyman has rushed for 257 yards (5.2 avg.) and 3 touchdowns. Penns Grove’s lone loss was a 21-20 Diamond Division defeat to Paulsboro.

Burlington Township (2-1) at Pennsauken (4-0), 7. This will be the first WJFL Liberty Division game for Burlington Township, while Pennsauken is 1-0 in division play. Ejani Shakur is a big-play receiver for Pennsauken. Burlington Township bounced back from a 42-21 loss to Shawnee by defeating Mainland, 43-14 last week. This figures to be a high scoring game. Burlington Township averages 35.6 points while Pennsauken is averaging 33.7 points.
