1973 and prior, there were no playoff games as we know of today. State Titles were decided by the NJSIAA Championship Committee. It wasn't until 1974 that the playoff format was developed to decide on the field, a true champion. From 1974 through 1997, there were four teams that qualified for the playoffs. From 1998 to present, the playoff field comprised eight teams.
That’s simply what the Woodbridge and Colts Neck High School football teams were trying to do after both squads surrendered fourth-quarter leads en route to losses earlier in the season.
Saturday, in another close one, Woodbridge applied the hammer to win 21-12 in a Greater Middlesex Conference/Shore Conference crossover at McChesney Stadium. With the victory, the Barrons snapped a 10-game losing streak that started last season.
“Finally,” Woodbridge senior running back Zahneer Shuler said. “Last time we won was week two of last season. So it feels good to finally get a W again. We just came together as a family. … We finally got it together.”
Shuler rushed for 98 yards and scored two touchdowns, while Barrons quarterback Tracy Fudge threw for 157 yards and a 20-yard score to Percy Martin. Quasim Glover added 122 receiving yards for Woodbridge. Colts Neck was led by Abdul Quddus’ 193 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
Defensively, Woodbridge’s Anthony Taveras and Colt Neck’s Carmen Catena each recovered a fumble. Colts Neck linebacker Nick Garguilo added a key sack and a tackle for a loss to help stop a Woodbridge drive in the first quarter.

Perth Amboy (0-2) at Woodbridge (1-2): A vastly improved Woodbridge team rebounded from a 14-7 loss to No. 7 Carteret and a 19-18 setback to No. 9 Bishop Ahr with an impressive 21-12 win over Colts Neck last weekend. With a little more success in the red zone against the Ramblers or being able to convert a field goal attempt in the closing seconds against Bishop Ahr, Woodbridge would be ranked in the Top 10. Quarterback Tracy Fudge (32 of 55 for 327 yards) has provided the Barrons with the passing threat they lacked a year ago. Wideout Quaasim Glover (17 catches, 187 yards) is his favorite target. Nate Lanier (31 carries, 321 yards, 3 TDs) and Zahneer Shuler (17 carries, 121 yards, 2 TDs) pace a balanced running game. Percy Martin (32 tackles), Donavan Brown (29 tackles) and Ryan Alcott (27 tackles) anchor the defense. After enduring an injury-plagued 40-0 season-opening loss to Middletown North, Perth Amboy looked better in a 35-14 setback to No. 5 Colonia last weekend. Quarterback Manny Saucedo, the younger brother of former Panthers star Faustino, completed 10 of 21 passes for 121 yards and a touchdown in defeat.
