The taste of losing its season opener was still present.

State-ranked in the preseason, Kingsway was knocked down to earth pretty quickly by Williamstown. With high expectations and coming off a sectional title, losing two in a row would have been a major hole to dig itself out of - even just two weeks into a new season.

“Now we have some momentum,” senior lineman Carter Williams said.

Playing a more inspired brand of defense, Kingsway proved to be the more physical team Friday night. The Dragons scored two defensive touchdowns in a showdown of Group 5 playoff contenders, defeating Washington Township 24-10 in a West Jersey Football League Continental Division matchup.

Williams got it started with a strip-and-score on the game’s second play, while Luke Van Brill helped seal the outcome with a 26-yard interception return for a score late in the fourth quarter.

“We had a bad game last week and that’s not us. We bounced back tonight and showed everyone who we are,” Williams said. “We were just flying to the ball, making tackles. Last week, we missed a lot of tackles and that hurt us. Tonight was huge for us.

“We worked on tackling all week. We had to be physical.”

Jordan Potts and Roman Kuzmack also had interceptions as Kingsway defeated Washington Township (1-2) for the ninth straight time since 2014. D.J. DiPietro was credited with 23 tackles by the Kingsway staff.

“We were playing passionate tonight; we were playing inspired ball,” Kingsway coach Mark Hendricks said. “The kids wanted to win, especially being in front of a home crowd.

“This is a tough schedule. We have to win those games that are close and we feel we let one get away last week. We kind of left some things out there offensively tonight, but the defense really picked us up. Everybody wants one of those turnover belts.”

Kingsway never trailed, taking a 10-0 lead on Asa Moser’s 35-yard field goal on its first possession and holding a 17-10 advantage at halftime. It’s lone offensive touchdown came when Nate Maiers hit Benny Liles on a 32-yard pass late in the third quarter.

The Minutemen never got into the red zone in the second half.

“We beat ourselves - turnovers, some critical penalties,” Washington Township coach Mike Schatzman said. “You’re not going to win with our schedule. Hopefully we can see them again.”

The Minutemen’s lone touchdown came on a 45-yard pass from Dan Farley to Da’Shawn Long with 23 seconds left in the first half. They were held to 115 yards of total offense in the second half.

“A big part of our team is our defense and last week we were exposed a little bit,” Van Brill said. “It put a chip on our shoulder. We wanted to come back and show how tough we are.

“We were way more physical than them. We needed this win. Last week we were down on ourselves.”

Said Hendricks: “We felt Williamstown out-physicaled led us in a stretch where we needed to have it to win the game. Our guys took a step back and felt they had something to prove this week.”

As far as debuts goes, this one couldn’t have gone better for Washington Township’s field hockey team. The Minutemaids were playing their first game as a member of the Tri-County Conference and opened with a 4-0 win over host Gloucester County Institute of Technology in the opener for both Royal Division teams.

For years, Township had competed in the Olympic Conference American Division. Over that time, the American Division, led by perennial national power Eastern, has been among the best in the state.

The Royal Division is also extremely competitive, where this year, in addition to Washington Township and GCIT, there are Clearview, Williamstown and a Kingsway team that began the year No. 4 in the NJ.com preseason Top 20.

So Township will have its work cut out, but so will the Minutemaids’ opponents.

Coming off a 9-11 season, but with a still relatively young team, Washington Township is looking to improve. The Minutemaids didn’t waste much time hitting the scoreboard in their new league.

Less than three minutes into the game, junior Meghan Sheldrick, who caused a lot of angst for the GCIT defense all game, scored the first goal of the season and the first, obviously as a member of the Tri-County Conference.

“That first goal really gave us a confidence and it was a great way to start the season,” said Sheldrick who scored two on the game.

Not only was this the first game in a new conference, but it was also the varsity head coaching debut for Washington Township’s Ashley Johnson, who was a middle school coach last season and is a former player at West Deptford High.

“This was exciting because we have a lot of new players who actually stepped on the field for the first time as varsity players,” Johnson said. “We think it is coming along nicely for them and we’re growing as a team together.”

One of the people who wasn’t new to varsity action is sophomore Ryli Zee, whose energy is contagious. Her passing ability is exemplary. Zee assisted on the first three Washington Township goals.

“She is a machine, she just has so much energy and she is such a tough girl,” Johnson said. “She will take on anything and won’t back down.”

Township scored twice in the second quarter, the first came when Zee found junior Brooke Alessandrini near the goal. With her back to the goal, Alessandrini spun around and scored from close range.

The third goal came as time expired in the first half, when Sheldrick scored on a scramble in front of the goal.

Down 3-0, GCIT still showed plenty of grit in the second half. The Cheetahs had chances and made some good runs on goal, but just couldn’t finish.

“Overall, I am not disappointed,” said GCIT coach Sarh Ruczynski, who has a very young team, coming off a 12-7 season. “We have some things we have to work on, but we played a much better second half.”

Township’s Ava Porreca finished out the scoring with a fourth quarter goal.

As if the excitement of starting a new season wasn’t enough, The Minutemaids have found motivation in their new Tri-County home.

“Now we are entering a new division,” Sheldrick said. “We want to prove to everybody that we can do well and keep on going,”

Delsea’s dominant performance in its season opener last week was not very surprising.

Deptford, on the other hand, certainly turned some heads with a fantastic effort of its own.

Both programs will look to stay hot against challenging opponents this week, while Woodstown is another team hoping to ride the momentum from a week ago and improve to 2-0.

The South Jersey Times has Week 2 of the local football schedule covered with a closer look at the big matchups and predictions for every game involving an area team from Bill Evans, Kevin Minnick and Matt Cosentino.

Winslow Township at Delsea

Friday, 7 p.m.

Jared Schoppe ran for three touchdowns as Delsea opened the 30th season of coach Sal Marchese’s tenure with a commanding 47-7 win over Delran. The Crusaders built a 40-0 advantage by halftime.

Delsea should be expecting a closer game this week in a West Jersey Football League Independence Division showdown. Winslow is 0-1 after losing to Northern Highlands in the Rumble on the Raritan but is coming off the first sectional title in program history last year.

Senior Jimmy Wilson Jr., a converted wide receiver who is the Eagles’ new starting quarterback, threw for 118 yards and ran for a touchdown in his debut at the position.

These teams have not met since 2013, when Delsea claimed a 35-0 victory.

Evans (14-8 last week, 20-13 season): Delsea 30, Winslow Township 21

Minnick (12-10 last week, 18-15 season): Delsea 28, Winslow Township 20

Cosentino (13-9 last week, 20-13 season): Delsea 30, Winslow Township 21

Paulsboro at Woodstown

Friday, 7 p.m.

Paulsboro ran into a terrific quarterback last week when Haddonfield’s Declan McCarthy accounted for five touchdowns in a 44-26 Bulldawgs’ win. Now the Red Raiders must face a sensational running back in James Hill.

The Woodstown junior set a school record with 312 yards rushing and scored six TDs as the Wolverines opened the season with a 46-19 win over Haddon Heights. He and his teammates will have redemption on their mind after suffering a 35-8 loss at Paulsboro last year.

Kevin Harvey’s head coaching debut did not go as planned but he will have his Red Raiders prepared to bounce back. Rocco Pellegrini connected with Preston Moore for three touchdowns last week.

Evans: Woodstown 30, Paulsboro 26

Minnick: Woodstown 34, Paulsboro 27

Cosentino: Woodstown 24, Paulsboro 21

Audubon at Deptford

Friday, 6 p.m.

Deptford rewarded new coach Pat Landis with a victory in his debut as it knocked off Triton in convincing fashion, 48-18. Quarterback CJ Carter completed 7-of-8 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for a score.

Audubon is coming off a 30-20 loss to Maple Shade. Highly touted quarterback Scott Lynch had touchdowns through the air and on the ground but did throw three interceptions.

Evans: Audubon 35, Deptford 31

Minnick: Deptford 24, Audubon 21

Cosentino: Audubon 27, Deptford 24

Washington Township at Kingsway

Friday, 6 p.m.

Washington Township was the No. 1 seed in South Jersey, Group 5 last year, and Kingsway ended up winning the title. Both expect to be championship contenders this season, so this should be an exciting game.

Kingsway has won nine of the 10 all-time matchups between these teams, including a 21-14 victory last year and a double-overtime thriller the season before. But the Dragons are coming off a disappointing 28-14 loss to Williamstown in their opener and hope to get back on track. Camillo Marusco ran for 74 yards and a touchdown.

The Minutemen rebounded from a 28-21 loss to Toms River North with a 45-12 victory over Eastern last Friday. Quarterback Jared Dzierzgowski ran for two scores and had a pick-six on defense.

Evans: Kingsway 26, Washington Township 21

Minnick: Washington Township 24, Kingsway 21

Cosentino: Washington Township 21, Kingsway 20

Williamstown at Millville

Friday, 6 p.m.

Fresh off a 28-14 upset over Kingsway, Williamstown will seek another statement-making win when it heads to Millville. Quarterback Drew Craig threw for a pair of touchdowns and ran for one to help the Braves even their record at 1-1.

The Thunderbolts are also 1-1 after losing to Irvington last week, 25-17. Jacob Zamot threw for 216 yards and a TD in the loss.

Evans: Millville 35, Williamstown 20

Minnick: Millville 28, Williamstown 14

Cosentino: Millville 31, Williamstown 16

Explosive Florida RB Jashon Benjamin commits to Rutgers football, adds change of pace

Rutgers has added a change of pace to its deep running back room, and is making dent in the Sunshine State.

Jashon Benjamin, a 5-9, 190-pound junior running back from Pahokee, who visited Rutgers in June, committed to Greg Schiano on Wednesday night — just two days after the team added IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) five-star long snapper Jake Eldridge to the fold.

“I love everything about Rutgers,” Benjamin, the three-star running back, said. “They are all about family. The coaches made me feel like I was home when I visited. They treated me like I was a part of the team already.”

Benjamin isn’t the tallest back, but he is explosive and has a thickly built lower half. He runs a 10.7 100-meters, and brings balance and power to the field. He is a threat in space who can also return punts and kicks, and turn short gains into home runs, and he’s tough to tackle.

Benjamin ran before Rutgers coaches during a satellite camp at Florida Atlantic this summer, checking those boxes for the staff.

Now, he’ll spend his next four-to-five years in Piscataway like many Florida players before him have done.

Want to bet on College Football?

Benjamin picked Rutgers over 12 other schools including Purdue, Tulane, Memphis, and a slew of Group of Five schools.

Benjamin is the 19th player, and seventh from Florida, to join Rutgers’ 2023 class, ranked by 48th 247Sports, and 50th by Rivals.com.
