NJSIAA Playoff Format
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.

Carteret 14, Woodbridge 7: 
By Greg Tufaro
September 12, 2014

Da’Avian Ellington, a sophomore tailback playing in his first ever varsity football game, raced 32 yards at the beginning of the fourth quarter to snap a 7-7 deadlock.

Ellington, who ended the night rushing 16 times for 101 yards, was forced into the primary running back role when cramps forced senior RaKeem Bennett from the game early in the second half. Bennett had opened the scoring in the first quarter when he took a handoff 63 yards for a touchdown. Carlo Lopez added the first of his two PATs for a 7-0 Carteret lead. The lead was short lived however, as sophomore Keshaun Henry returned the ensuing kickoff 76 yards for a touchdown. Harry Rutkowski added the point after to tie the game.

The game was mostly about defense, and sloppy play, as both teams combined for well over 20 penalties and five turnovers. The Carteret defense harassed and hurried Woodbridge quarterback Tracy Fudge all evening and Nelson Baez, his Carteret counterpart, was equally ineffective.

Carteret’s defense had a goal-line stand early in the first quarter and stopped Woodbridge in its own territory five times in the second half. Carteret, was led defensively by Brandon Gilder, who recorded an interception and a strip and recovery of a fumble. 



Woodbridge (7) at Carteret (14)
By The Star Ledger
on September 12, 2014 10:41 p.m

Da'Avian Ellington ran for 101 yards on 16 carries with one touchdown to lead Carteret over Woodbridge, 14-7, in Carteret.
Ra-Keem Bennett rushed for 93 yards on five carries and added a touchdown as Carteret broke a 7-7 tie in the fourth quarter behind Ellington's 32-yard scamper.


GMC-WHITE DIVISION
​By Braulio Perez
September 01, 2014 4:15 p.m.

Predicted order of finish: 1-St. Joseph; 2-Carteret; 3-South Plainfield; 4-Colonia; 5-Iselin Kennedy; 6-Bishop Ahr; 7-Woodbridge; 8-Perth Amboy; 9-New Brunswick

Best on offense: John Chillemi played on both offense and defense for South Plainfield last season, including wide receiver. The 6-3, 190-pounder caught 28 passes for 426 yards and five touchdowns. Expect those numbers to grow in 2014. A First-Team All-County Selection, Chillemi also recorded over 100 tackles.

Best on defense: Carteret senior Rahkeem Bennett may be a brusing back, but he’ll lay licks on you too. The 5-10, 180-pounder was second on the team with 86 tackles and led the team with four sacks. Bennett added three fumble recoveries.

Others to watch: QB Breein Tyree, St. Joseph; QB Nelson Baez, Carteret; WR Brandon Gilder, Carteret; OT Brandon Williams, Carteret; DL Xavier Wilson, South Plainfield; WR/DB Kyle Dickerson, South Plainfield; LB Soloman Manning, Colonia; RB Sam Pero, Colonia; OL Connor Aston, JFK; WR/DB Terrance Young, JFK; QB David Holder Bishop Ahr; LB Alex Dawes, Bishop Ahr; OL/DL Elon Capers, Woodbridge.
