It was another exciting week on the GMC gridiron. Here are three takeaways from Week 6 in the conference.
• Old Bridge’s fourth-quarter comeback stuns Sayreville: Old Bridge trailed 21-7 against Sayreville after the Bombers ran a fumble back early in the quarter. But Old Bridge scored three straight touchdowns to close the game, including a pair of Artur Sitkowski touchdown passes, to rally and win. Old Bridge had a PAT fail after Jake Esposito scored on a 49-yard pass, leaving the Knights behind, 21-20. But a 40-yard touchdown from Sitkowski to Anthony Imbimbo put the Knights ahead for good, helping them improve to 4-2.
• Colonia rebounds with comeback win over rival Woodbridge: Colonia erased three deficits against Woodbridge on Friday, capped by Solomon Manning’s game-winning 31-yard touchdown catch, to snap Colonia’s two-game losing streak in a 27-26 win. The win helped Colonia keep pace in the White Division race, remaining one game within New Brunswick, and the two teams are set to play on Oct. 30.
• Firgau carries Metuchen: Metuchen secured a key Blue Division win when it handled Middlesex, 40-8, on Saturday. Senior running back Trevor Firgau led the way for the Bulldogs, needing just eight carries to rack up 118 yards and two touchdowns, adding to the five ground scores Metuchen made on the day. Quarterback Jake Lebovits was also efficient in the air, completing 7-of-11 passes for 109 yards and one touchdown.
