Hillbillies Topple Secaucus


Share post:

It was Bobby’s game last night.

The Verona High School Hillbillies traveled to Secaucus on Friday for the first game in the North Jersey, Section 2, Group 1 playoffs and Bobby Kaslander brought them home winners. He scored three of Verona’s four touchdowns and nailed all four of the point-after kicks, giving Verona a 28-20 victory over a powerful Secaucus squad.

There were some solid stats all around for Verona, which went into the match-up as the fifth-seeded underdog. Quarterback Matt Rosenfeld completed 12 of 20 passes for 189 yards; 91 of those yards ended in Kaslander’s hands. Rosenfeld also connected with Colin Farawell on a 7-yard touchdown pass. Cooper Neale’s running game tallied 78 yards on 18 carries. Who Verona plays next depends on the outcome of today’s game between Hoboken and New Providence.

Fred Goode captured the game highlights.
