RANDOLPH — Three years ago, Randolph special teams coach Michael Lyons served up a recruiting pitch that paid dividends for his program much later.
The longtime Rams assistant coach reached out to then-soccer player Aidan Flowers and pleaded with him to join the school’s football program.
“I told him I needed him, and I knew he would do something great at some time and I guess here it is,” Lyons said. “He’s very valuable to us.”
Flowers, whose brother Jacob played for Randolph until he graduated in 2019, gave it a chance and remained with the program. Since the Rams have attempted about two field goals over the past four years, Flowers has mostly resided in the background.
The senior was thrust into the spotlight, nailing a 30-yard field goal as time expired to rally Randolph past Wayne Valley, 31-28, in a North 2, Group 4 semifinal on Friday night. The second-seeded Rams, who hope to capture their first sectional crown since 2010, face top seed North Hunterdon next week.
“My heart was racing but I was ready for the job,” Flowers said. “Kickers don’t always get their due but I got it today.”
The game came down to three plays from three of Randolph’s more unheralded performers. Facing a fourth-and-4 from the Randolph 38, Wayne Valley (10-1) faked a punt. Punter Alex Scheuplein, who also serves as his team’s quarterback, lofted a pass toward Tyler Smith, but Rams defensive back Kaeson McAll swooped in and deflected the ball out of bounds to give Randolph a final chance to win it.
“I knew they were going to fake so I was waiting for the pass to come to me,” McAll said. “We practice it all the time and I was ready. Luckily I did my part.”
Jake Jenisch served as the team’s next savior. The 6-foot-3 receiver, who didn’t have a catch previously in the game, made a leaping 30-yard grab on third-and-10 to put Randolph at the Indians’ 15. His catch set up Flowers’ dramatic game-winning kick.
“I typically like to go for it on fourth down but Aidan practices those kicks all the time,” said Randolph coach Will Nahan, who will be coaching in his first sectional final. “I had no doubt he was going to make that.”
Courtesy of an effective running attack, the Indians mustered a long drive that put them at the Randolph 35 with a third-and-1 situation. But a costly false start pinned them back. Unable to muster enough yards for the first down on a quarterback run, Wayne Valley opted for the fake punt that led to a turnover on downs late in the fourth quarter.
The game was a contrast to the last meeting between the schools, when Randolph built a 23-point halftime lead before holding on for a 40-25 win last year.
There were a flurry of wild plays, a dozen combined penalties, and three lead changes in the first half, as third-seeded Wayne Valley forced two turnovers via interception for a 21-20 halftime lead Friday. The second interception was more damaging as Chris Jun, who was nursing what appeared to be a lower leg injury earlier in the game, showed no signs of the ailment on a diving grab to the Randolph 45.
Jun provided more theatrics on the next play when he caught a pass from Alex Scheuplein in stride and raced toward the left side of the end zone for the touchdown with 3:35 remaining in the first half. Buoyed by a 49-yard reception by Ryan Novak, Randolph responded with a 5-play, 78-yard drive that was capped by a 1-yard touchdown run by Jesse Wilfong. The extra point try was blocked, preserving the Indians one-point lead.
The teams exchanged touchdowns in the second half as Wayne Valley scored on a 6-yard run by Scheuplein with 10:14 left in the third quarter. Stephen Petruzziello, who had 108 rushing yards and a pair of scores, followed with a 14-yard jaunt with 4:53 remaining in the same period.
Randolph advances to play North Hunterdon in the North 2, Group 4 championship game. It is the first trip to the sectional final for the Rams since defeating Montclair, 19-10, in the North 1, Group 4 final in 2010. Ironically, Randolph needed a field goal in the second overtime against North Bergen to escape with a 24-21 victory in the sectional semifinal.
“North Hunterdon is the number one seed for a reason,” said Nahan, whose team has won three straight games. “They’re well coached and I’m sure they have some great players.”
Wayne Valley, the champion of the SFC Patriot White, ends its season-long 10-game winning streak. The Indians dropped their second consecutive game against Randolph in the past two seasons.
There was no bigger play than Flowers’ game-winning field goal with three seconds left to catapult Randolph into the sectional final. Flowers had a kick blocked by Erik Scheuplein earlier in the game but nailed the longer boot to win it.“I move on from my mistakes,” Flowers said. “For the coaches to have the trust in me, I am at a loss for words.”
? The magic number for Wayne Valley was 34. The Indians had registered that amount of points or more in seven of their last eight contests.? The Rams improve their playoff record to 28-21, while Wayne Valley drops to 27-19. Randolph is making its 13th appearance in the sectional title game and aims for its eighth crown.
? Alex Scheuplein had 149 of his 157 passing yards in the first half and piled up 171 rushing yards for Wayne Valley. He finished with a pair of passing touchdowns and two more rushing scores in the loss.? Petruzziello had 108 rushing yards and two touchdowns to pace Randolph.
"I never want to do this. I never want to be in this situation, but I am so excited to get into this championship game.” – Flowers on being called on to attempt the game-winning kick Friday night.
? Randolph (9-1) travels to North Hunterdon (10-1) winner next week.? Wayne Valley's season (10-1) concludes.

RANDOLPH, NJ- The Nov. 21 Randolph Board of Education meeting was the first back since the Nov. 8 election, where three new Board members were chosen, and the Board both welcomed its new members and addressed claims of interference.
Hazel Ball, Sheldon Epstein, and Amanda Adams were chosen to take over the seats held by Tammy Mackay, Jeannie Stifelman and Susan Devito, who all decided not to run again. Epstein is a familiar face to the board, sitting on it between 2013 and 2019, while Adams and Ball are newcomers. The three all received accolades from the Board,
During the meeting’s Public Input, Board of Education candidate Todd Schleifstein took to the podium. Schleifstein congratulated the Board members to be, yet showed some frustration with the process.

According to Schleifstein, he was not able to overcome his opponents’ advantages despite trying his best. He said that, even so, the amount of votes he and his ballot members received disproves the “myth that there are only 10 angry people in all of Randolph who have issues or concerns with the board”.
“I didn’t have a major political party coordinating my campaign. I didn’t have supporters sending threatening communications to my opponents to scare them, or social media posts made about their children. I didn’t have sitting board members phone-banking for me and bad-mouthing my opponents with lies about their integrity and actions”, he said.
Schleifstein added that the town had been turned into a modern-day Tammany Hall, referencing the political machine that ran New York City between the late 1700s and the 1930s which, and said that he has turned over “hundreds of pages of evidence” to the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office to determine charges of extortion and election interference.
During Board Policy and Governance Motions, both MacKay and Giordano spoke about the election. MacKay thanked all the candidates for running and also congratulated the winners, saying, “your fellow residents have put their trust and faith in you to represent their community”, and urged her fellow members to remember that. She added that the residents have the right to speak out and have the Board listen to them, but that the Board is free to disagree on any issue. “No one has the right to demand that the Board listen to them, no matter how frequently, loudly, or passionately you may state your case.”
Giordano said that “we can shop the numbers however we want”, but that “we have elections, people are elected to a board, that board is empowered to make decisions based on the votes of the people”. He commented on the claim of election interference, defining the term as such:
Giordano continued, "And it is not when a community member, be they an elected official, fellow Board member, or otherwise, has an opinion. He called the election “decisive” and said that “there simply aren’t” nefarious activities."

RANDOLPH, NJ- Helene Elbaum has been elected to the Randolph Town Council, taking the seat of the departing Jim Loveys.
A Drew University graduate, Elbaum works for Newmark Real Estate in Cedar Knolls, the largest woman-owned real estate firm in New Jersey. Her family has lived in Randolph for over 40 years. The oldest of four, Elbaum has gone through the Randolph school system and most of her family lives in town.
Elbaum has been on the Economic Development Committee for about ten years and currently serves as its vice president. She is also on the Parks Advisory Committee and the Planning Board and serves as Vice President at the Randolph Area Chamber Of Commerce.

Elbaum is “gung-ho” about bringing businesses into town, and has frequently worked with landlords as a commercial real estate worker. She credits her and the Economic Development Committee’s work with both bringing businesses to town and keeping the town’s vacancy rates low. Elbaum says a lot of new businesses credit their “welcome packet”, which contains proper contacts, paperwork, social media, and advertising outlets to help them learn the ropes of Randolph, with helping them settle in despite potential hardships. She also credits the town spotlights with keeping business owners going through the pandemic.
“It’s been an honor to work with all these Randolph businesses,” said Elbaum, “The Amount of trust that they instill in me to help them succeed in their town…people came from all different areas, and especially during COVID, a lot of them were panicking. A lot of it’s come full circle. I consider them friends and colleagues and a lot of them are mentors, and a lot of them are still in business today!”
Elbaum got her start in town politics through an interesting avenue. She served a former mayor as their commercial real estate broker, and when the mayor, who served on the EDC, encouraged her to get involved, she joined the EDC as an alternate. This led to her joining several different committees, though this is her first time on the Council.
“They’ve asked me for a while, and I decided that now’s the time to roll the dice”, Elbaum said of her candidacy. “I called campaigning, ‘campaigning boot camp’, I learned a lot!”
Elbaum said she’s greatly looking forward to working with the entire council and providing pro-business opportunities and a great community when she takes her chair in January.
“I have a great mentor system, just to be with them is an honor”.

RANDOLPH, NJ—RHS students performed a stunning rendition of “Radium Girls,” adapting the story of girls who worked in radium factories in 1920s New Jersey with performances that ran from Wednesday, Oct. 16 through Friday, Oct. 18 in the high school auditorium.
Junior Carly Ellermeyer starred as Grace Fryer, a young woman who painted radium onto watches before finding out the paint was slowly killing her friends and coworkers who used it—and the watch company was covering it up.
“I loved playing Grace Fryer because of the innocence of her character,” Ellermeyer said. “She was just a girl, my age, when she began to work at the radium factory. This allowed me to explore so many different emotions that she faced.”

The most challenging part of the role was “upholding the historical significance,” Ellermeyer said. “We had to make sure the show was a proper tribute to the women who suffered through these trials.”
Other notable “Radium Girls” included junior Amelia Diaz as Kathryn Schaub and sophomore Pooja Das as Irene Rudolph. Also outstanding in their roles were those on the watch company’s side: sophomore Brendan Angilello as company owner Arthur Roeder, junior Turner Allen as Dr. Von Sochocky, senior Gavin Emdur as Edward Markley and senior Andrew Berkemeyer as Charlie Lee.
Junior Aydan Salim and sophomore Alexa Rowe brought some humor to the production and smiles to the audience in their roles as dramatic journalists documenting the girls’ plight, using archived issues of the high school’s newspaper to great effect as props.
The set, managed by senior Sophia Fliegler and sophomore Carolyn Marconi and put together by the stage crew, certainly helped draw the audience into the story. The closing scenes took place among glow-in-the-dark gravestones, reminiscent of radium’s faint glow that made it so popular in the 1920s.
“I learned a lot about the event taking place in ‘Radium Girls," said senior Gracie Schrader, after attending the show’s closing night. “I liked that they picked a play that took place in our own backyard because we as an audience could find our way in.”
“I hope the audience walks away with the weight of this story as well as an appreciation for the overall talent and hard work of the company,” director Jacob Burlas said. The Drama Club looks forward to this year’s spring musical, “Fiddler on the Roof,” set to stage in March 2023. “We are so excited to dive deep into another area of history and continue bringing theatrical stories to life in a manner that is respectful, insightful, and compelling.”

Portable generators provide power to tools and appliances when you need supplemental electricity and not connected to the power grid. They run on gasoline, diesel, or propane and typically include two electrical outlets. Because their combustion engines emit fumes, portable generators should be kept outdoors during operation, although extension cords can be used to carry the power indoors.
If your fridge is fully stocked, you could lose hundreds of dollars in refrigerated and frozen items if the power stays out more than a few hours. In cold temperatures, a generator can keep your home heated and in warmer temperatures can keep your air conditioning going, as well as hot water heaters and other needed appliances and home systems. Generators are important safety equipment during natural disasters such as hurricanes and snowstorms, or during any power outage.
While a power outage keeps most people in the dark, it can completely strand electric car owners. If you depend on an electric car, having a portable generator will ensure that you can drive to work, go to the grocery store, pick up the babysitter, rush to the emergency room, or travel wherever else you need to go, even during an extended blackout.
Your House uses Well Water
Municipal water systems are pressurized, so water will come out of the faucet whether or not there’s a power outage. Not so for rural dwellers who depend on electric pumps to pump the water out of their wells and into their homes. But if you have a portable generator, you can plug the well pump into it and keep the water flowing during a power outage.
You have a Home Business or Work from Home
When you run a home business or work from home, a simple power outage could mean a complete work shutdown—unless you have a generator. With the growing gig economy, millions of Americans work from home. It's essential for them to have a portable generator on hand to keep the Wi-Fi, PC, printers, and internet running, even in the middle of a widespread power outage.
You rely on an Electrical Medical Device
If you or a family member is dependent on a medical device, such as a heart monitor, an oxygen tank, or a rechargeable power chair, advance planning is vital. When a life is on the line, it's especially important to be prepared. You not only need a portable generator, but you also must have extension cords and the fuel for your generator so you can switch to your alternate power source at a moment’s notice.
