CedarGrove2013-FerrariVerona High School quarterback Frank Ferrari scored four Hillbilly touchdowns in Saturday’s game against Cedar Grove, but it wasn’t enough to win the Investors Bank trophy. Cedar Grove defeated Verona, 43-26, as quarterback Joe Slattery scored two touchdowns himself and guided his team to four more.CedarGrove2013-Crawford-McKeown

Ferrari had 18 carries for 175 yards, while senior Matt McKeown had 19 carries for 118 yards. Verona got some strong play out of McKeown, including a 50-yard run down the home sideline, but wasn’t able to capitalize on it.CedarGrove2013-Weiss

The Hillbilly defense, including senior Luke Weiss and junior Mike Cifaretto, and sophomore Ryan Symons thwarted several Panther plays, and sophomore Mark snagged a nice interception. Verona, which is now 4-2, hosts Weequahic High School next Saturday, with a 2:30 p.m. start.
