Group 2: The only game I see being competitive is Holy Cross at Immaculata. St. Joe’s (Hammonton), Holy Spirit, and Hudson Catholic should have no trouble winning this weekend.
Group 3: Red Bank Catholic has a bye as the top seed and they play the winner of Pope John-St. John Vianney. Although Pope John has only one win, they have played a more demanding schedule than Vianney. On the other side of the bracket, Bishop Ahr plays DePaul and I see DePaul winning with a running clock the entire second half. Donovan Catholic goes to Mater Dei, a rematch of a game Mater Dei won, 48-12 two weeks ago.
Group 4: This is a light weekend with two games to qualify for the round of eight. The two games are Notre Dame visiting St. Augustine and Paramus Catholic at Seton Hall Prep. While Notre Dame has a couple of exciting players in twin running backs Cortaz and Coleon Williams. St. Augustine features the receiving talents of Jaylen DeCoteau. The winner plays St. Joe’s (Montvale). Paramus Catholic and Seton Hall Prep met earlier this year with Seton Hall Prep winning, 37-29. The winner of this game will play Bergen Catholic.
