|Summit vs Rahway 9/28/2919|
|Summit hosted Rahway in the first real test faced after two easy victories. Summit and Rahway traded their first two possessions without a score. Sadly, Sam Roberts, Summit’s passer, was injured early and did not see anymore action.
On Summit’s 3rd possession the Hilltoppers mounted a 13 play drive, almost exclusively on the ground. The score came on 4 yard pass from Groce to Lucardi. Lucari also ran for the extra point and Summit was ahead 8-0.
Late in the half Rahway scored on a 71 yd pass to tie the game at 8-8. Just before the end of the half Summit turned the ball over on a fumble at the Summit 12. Three Rahway passes failed and they settled for a field goal. The Half ended with Rahway up 11-8.
On Summit’s first possession of the 2nd half Groce connected with Campbell for a 66 yard TD, the kick was blocked, but Summit was back on top 14-11. That was followed by a 24 Field Goal by Froschhauer to grow the lead to 17-11. The Summit fans were enthusiastic.
But that was when the good times ended. Rahway would claim the next four scores to build a 34 -17 lead. Summit had glimmer of hope when Groce connect with Goldblatt who race 83 yard for the TD make the score 34-23. The glimmer of hope was snuffed out when Rahway scored again on a 62 yard run.
Note: Brock Froschauer has become a major force as a kicker. His four towering punts averaged 47.5 yards from the line of scrimmage. Since he is punting from 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage, that is over 60 yards. He also does the kickoffs. He routinely kicked the ball into the end zone, robbing Rahway of any chance of a return
