Statistically, Delaware Valley and North Plainfield were fairly even at halftime, but even though the Terriers were up just two scores, you got the young men from Frenchtown were in control.
Del Val (2-0) scored three more times in the second half to pull away for what would be a 35-6 road victory over the Canucks, in the Big Central Game of the Week driven by Autoland on Central Jersey Sports Radio Friday night.
It was Del Val’s fourth straight win over North Plainfield.
Junior quarterback Jack Bill threw for 197 yards and two touchdowns, while also running for a 14-yard touchdown. Bill was named the Autoland Big Central Player of the Game, and will receive a custom game ball at the end of the season.
The two TD passes came in the first half, 12 yards to senior Logan Blake, and 21 yards to junior Patrick Garlinghouse out of the backfield.
North Plainfield (1-1) moved the ball with ease on its first possession, but the drive sputtered out after a false start penalty and bad snap forced them into punting territory. And the Del Val defense got stronger as the game went on.
Blake scored two touchdowns on the game, his second coming on a 48-yard pick-six early in the third quarter.
