saw two battle-tested seniors account for three scores in the second
quarter on Friday to help the Ramblers take a commanding first half lead
on their way to a 28-7 victory over J.F Kennedy in a Greater Middlesex
Conference White Division showdown.
“I think we needed to throw
the ball,” Carteret coach Matt Yascko said. “It took us a while to get
going there, but the defense presented 10 guys in the line of scrimmage
so we had to throw it, and that opened it up for us.”

the game began with both defenses playing greedy as the game remained
scoreless at the end of the first quarter.
Quartius Byrd scored the games’ first touchdown with an impressive
53-yard run, where he broke three tackles before tip-toeing down the
sideline to give the Ramblers a 7-0 lead with 10:47 remaining in the

threw a seven-yard fade to senior wide receiver Keanu Chapman to put

second receiving touchdown of the game with a 31-yard reception where
Golino placed the ball perfectly in the corner of the end zone to give
the Ramblers a commanding 21-0 lead late in the second quarter.

fullback Dwayne Sharpe, putting Carteret up three scores with only 3:56
left in regulation.
Although the Ramblers won, J.F. Kennedy head
coach Pete Christathakis was proud of the way his team didn’t give up in
the second half.
“I’m definitely proud of our kids for their
composure to finish the game,” Christathakis said. “I think we have
strong leaders who have the desire and the will to win but we just have
to play better football.”
Mustangs senior captain Sean Aston
suffered a high-ankle sprain in the first half and couldn’t finish the
rest of the contest. Without its best offensive and defensive lineman,
J.F. Kennedy was still able to just hold the high-powered Carteret
offense to just one touchdown in the second half.
“I saw two pretty tough football teams in a dog fight,” Christathakis said. “I tip my hat to Carteret.”
