FB2013-GlenRidge1The Verona High School Hillbillies were the favorite going into Saturday’s game against Glen Ridge, and they made good on that promise in a big way, defeating the Ridgers 42-13 on Harrell Field.

FB2013-GlenRidge4-IntiliFor much of the afternoon, the game belonged to two players named Matt: Matt Intili, who got Verona on the scoreboard first, and Matt McKeown, who roared down the field for a touchdown at the start of the third quarter. McKeown had 129 yards on nine carries, while Intili piled up 110 yards over 11 attempts.

FB2013-GlenRidge2The Hillbillies’ junior quarterback, Frank Ferrari, played the game that Verona has come to expect of him: A passing and rushing powerhouse that produced three touchdowns and added 170 yards to his tally.
