Friday night’s Big Central Game of the Week features the Bound Brook and the Voorhees, in a battle of 1-1 teams.
The Big Central Game of the Week is sponsored locally by RCM Automotive and Hagan-Chamberlain Funeral Home, both in Bound Brook.
The Crusaders are coming off a 29-25 loss at Delaware Valley, a much larger school under normal circumstances. But Bound Brook is more depleted than usual due to COVID forcing some team members not to play our of concern for their family, while others have had to get after-school jobs to support their families.
The Brook is led by junior quarterback Patrick LePoidevin, the son of the new first-year head coach Dave LePoidevin. No stranger to Bound Brook, he’s been their offensive coordinator for the past four years. His boss, Dom Longo, remains on the staff as a special teams coach.
The Vikings, meanwhile, picked up their first win of the season last week with a 44-14 win over Manville Friday night, in which five different players scored.
The teams have had one common opponent so far this season: Delaware Valley. While the Crusaders only lost by four on the road to the Terriers, the Voos lost 24-2 at home to Del Val in Week One.
