South Jersey’s Football Division Winners
While the playoffs are going on, the regular season means 15 different division champions crowned in the West Jersey Football League among teams from the seven-county South Jersey area.

Here is a look at the divisional champions. The WJFL determined champions by the record and doesn’t use a head-to-head tiebreaker.

WJFL American: Millville won the championship with a 4-1 record. The Thunderbolts lone loss was 21-17 to Lenape, which finished in a three-way tie for second with Cherokee and St. Augustine, all with a 3-2 mark.

WJFL Classic: Florence and Cherry Hill East finished tied for the division with 4-1 records. Florence lost its second game of the season to East, 33-14 but the Cougars lost 41-8 to Palmyra.

WJFL Colonial: Deptford and Gloucester City tied for the title with 3-1 marks. Gloucester’s division loss was a 29-23 defeat to Audubon. Deptford lost at Gloucester, 7-3.

WJFL Constitution: Camden was the champ with a 5-0 record. The Panthers were challenged in just one game, a 7-3 victory over Haddonfield. Currently in second is Haddonfield with a 3-1 mark and the Bulldogs need to beat Haddon (2-2) on Thanksgiving to clinch the outright second-place spot. A Haddon Heights win would clinch both the Garnets and West Deptford a share of second place with Haddonfield.

WJFL Continental: Holy Spirit clinched the title with a 4-0 record while Kingsway finished second at 3-1. The difference was Holy Spirit’s 31-27 win at Kingsway.

WJFL Diamond: Woodstown and Woodbury tied for the title with 3-1 marks in what is one of the top small-school divisions in the state. Woodbury won the head-to-head matchup with a 28-6 win, but the Thundering Herd suffered their lone division loss to Salem, 21-20.

WJFL Freedom: Maple Shade and Cinnaminson tied for the title with 4-1 records. In the head-to-head matchup, Maple Shade beat Cinnaminson, 14-0. The Wildcats suffered their lone division loss to Bordentown, 8-6.

WJFL Horizon: Schalick went 5-0 to win the Division. Gloucester Catholic was second at 4-1. The difference was a 33-26 win by Schalick over the second-place Rams.

WJFL Independence: Delsea was the winner with a 4-0 record. Second place will be decided when St. Joseph visits Winslow Township on Nov. 23. Both teams are 2-1.

WJFL Liberty Pennsauken beat Camden Eastside, 34-6. Camden Eastside went 3-1. Pennsauken’s toughest division game was a 31-28 victory over Willingboro.

WJFL Memorial: Hammonton went 4-0 to win the division. Highland, Rancocas Valley and Timber Creek were all tied for second at 2-2.

WJFL National: Seneca went 5-0 to win the division. Paul VI, which lost to Seneca, 23-7, was second with a 3-2 mark.

WJFL Patriot: Pleasantville was the winner with a 4-0 record. Glassboro was second at 3-1, having lost to Pleasantville, 20-12.
