Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times
The saga continued for the Governor Livingston Highlanders as they came up short against Roselle, falling 28-18 on October 2 in Roselle. The Highlanders led 15-8 at the half and 18-16 late in the third, but Ram fullback Jamin Walker scored two touchdowns in the fourth to secure the victory.
The Rams scored early in the first quarter after the Highlanders coughed up the ball on the Roselle 48. With 10:42 left in the quarter, quarterback Yusef Mohammad delivered a 48-yard bomb to Derrick Guest. The 2-point conversion jumped the score to 8-0.
Highlander Brian Pritchard recovered a fumble on the Roselle 29. Three consecutive carries by Jeremy Ferguson, put the ball on the Ram three. On fourth and one, Ferguson burst through for the touchdown. Quarterback Rob Findlay hooked up with Tim Marcantonio for the conversion to knot the score.
In the second quarter the Highlanders defensive unit of Tom Robina, Mike Farrell, Chris Pagano, Ed Barrett and company sparkled to halt the Rams. Ferguson and a hungry offensive line blasted their way to the Ram 16, then Findlay, on a keeper, bolted for the touchdown. K. C Miller’s kick was good and with 5:00 left in the half Governor Livingston led 15-8.
Near half-time, Findlay grabbed an interception. A fully charged-up Highlander team came out in the second half halting Roselle’s drive on fine tackles by
Mike Watson and Farrell on the 29. The line opened up a hole for Fred Williams as he blasted to the 50. Once again, Findlay on the keeper moved the ball to the Ram 37. On the next play Pritchard advanced the ball to the 20. Runs by Findlay and Ferguson placed the ball on the nine. Four plays later, Miller booted a 26-yard field goal to boost the lead to 18-8 with 3:58 remaining in the quarter.
The Rams took over the ball on the G. L. 48 as Muhammad and Guest went to work connecting for 24 yards to the G. L. three. Two plays later, Hodge scored from the one. The two-point conversion narrowed the lead to 18-16.
After a Highlander turnover, Muhammad and Guest hooked up again for 52 yards.
Three plays later, Walker on a quick pitch, sprang five yards for the touchdown. Putting the Rams in the lead, 22-18.
The Highlanders launched a counter attack but Ram Rodriquez picked off Findlay’s pass and returned it to the 45. Later, Walker scored on a six-yard run, finalizing the score at 28-18, with just 1:00 remaining.
Ferguson had 16 carries for 68 yards and Pritchard had seven carries for 52 yards. Findlay was 4-for-48 passing while senior Tom Geraghty had two receptions for 32 yards.

Local Area High School Boys Soccer Results
Westfield B Gridders Crush Chatham PAL Team, 27-0
Sheer determination, unfailing focus and strong offensive and defensive performances characterized the Blue Devils almost flawless game as the PAL “B” team stormed Chatham, 27-0. Led by the PAL cheerleaders, a respectable crowd, cheered the Blue Devils victory at Kehler Stadium.
Seven plays into the game, courtesy of gritty maneuvering by Nick DeRosa, Terron Rogers, Pierce Gaynor, Tommy Del Duca and a 38-yard touchdown run by Michael Gorski, Westfield was on the board. Matt Perrelli’s kick was wide; the Blue Devils led 6-0.
Chatham, poised on their own 35 were obliterated by the formidable persons of Darrell Hopkins, Chris Witkowski, Marc Dowling and Perrelli. Westfield took possession. Chatham was helpless as a determined DelDuca sprinted 38 yards
into the endzone. Perrelli’s kick was good as the score rose to 13-0.
Chatham continued to flounder under the punishing defense of Mark Harbaugh, James Hwang, and Tim Dohm. With halftime approaching, Rogers chewed up the field on two successive plays setting the stage for Gaynor’s five-yard run into the endzone. Again, Perrelli’s kick was good. The Blue Devils headed for the locker room with a 20-0 lead.
Chatham stalled again on their own 35 in the third quarter. Two successive pass attempts were broken up by Andrew Shaffer and Dowling.
Mike Diaz, David Cognetti and Tommy Layton pounded out yards for the Blue Devils eventually enabling Layton to break away for the score. Perrelli, on target again, kicked for the PAT and Westfield claimed an impressive 27-0 lead. With the clock ticking, Chatham set up a pass play. Michael Scaliti intercepted as time ran out.

Cruises by Chatham, 13-0
The Westfield Police Athletic League’s “C” football team shutout Chatham 13-0 on October 3 at Kehler Stadium in Westfield. The Westfield defense picked up where they left off with another dominating performance. Tackles by Eric Scrudato, Matthew Ince and Santo Nardi sent an early message that Chatham was in for a long day.
The Blue Devil offense also got off quickly. The offensive line of Anthony Arnold, Zack Deegan, J. T. Sheehan, Sam Crawford and Luke Ricci broke open holes for a 26-yard sweep right by Mike Venezia and a 12-yard sweep left by Sean Ferro on Westfield’s first two plays. On a fourth-and-three, quarterback Mark Boyd kept the ball on an option for a 21-yard gain to the four. Venezia scored on the next play and the extra point was good when Boyd hit
Venezia with a quick pass. Chatham stalled on offense. Richard Delaney, Kyle Zeitounian, Chris Sailors, Sean Sullivan and Thomas Moore did not allow a first down the entire game except for on two penalties. The special teams play was also outstanding led by the punt returns of Derek Anderson.
On the first play of the second half, quarterback Boyd rolled left and fired a pass to Venezia who made a brilliant catch for a 65-yard touchdown.
The defensive play of the game was on Chatham’s final possession. Chatham’s quarterback dropped back to pass and Ryan Torcicollo broke through the line and rushed the throw. Linebacker Robert Cox leaped high in the air and batted the ball down to preserve the shutout.
Head coach Pat Ferro was pleased with the offensive execution but he credited the defense with the victory. Westfield’s next game will be held on Sunday, October 10, at noon at home against Berkeley Heights.
