|Summit vs Scotch Plains 9/29/2017|
What a wild game, with huge swings of momentum. When the dust settled Summit and Scotch Plains had delivered 1,096 yards of total offence.
The first half was all Summit as the Hilltoppers scored 35 unanswered points. With about four minutes still on the clock, the “mercy rule” came into effect. Resulting in a “running clock.” Summit fans were anticipating that the 2nd half would pass by quickly with the running clock.
However, things turned around completely starting the 2nd half. Summit kicked off and on the 2nd play from scrimmage Scotch Plains nailed a wide open receiver for a 70 yard touchdown. Hilltopper fans missed the running clock but figured the pass was a lucky play. Summit set out to restore order. Summit moved quickly to a first down at the SPF 23 yard line, behind the running of Max Jackson and passes from Schluter to Hayford and Sajer. However, a fumble gave SPF the ball at their 20. On 3rd down another bomb went 85 yards for SPF's 2nd TD. Now things were getting serious. On SPF’s 3rd possession they mounted a 14 play TD drive that started on their 12. Now things were getting serious. Three unanswered TDs made the score 35-20 as the 4th quarter began.
SPF tried an on-side kick, but Summit fell on the ball at the SPF 49 yard line. Two carries by Max Jackson netted 31 yards and a Schluter pass to Sajer put Summit back in the game. After that The Hilltoppers and Scotch Plains alternated scores. SPF scored on another big pass play of 56 yards and Summit answered with 50 yard TD run by Tyler.
