Newark Memorial 42, Irvington 0
Newark Memorial moved the ball at will right from the start of the game and set the tone; it just took just three plays to score. The Cougars Mark Morton took the ball 45 yards right up the middle for the first score and the offensive line gave room for their runners throughout the game; Marty Leggett ran for 104 yards and Mark Morton gained 91 yards on 13 carries.Newark's defense put pressure on Irvington's quarterback all night.
Newark's Quarterback Riley Pivin had no problems finding Fred Tidwell open for a 61-yard TD pass and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Robert Ramirez in the third quarter.
It was a good start for Newark; they could be contender for the wide open MVAL race this year.
