South Brunswick head coach John Viotto was impressed with his team’s Week Two defense.
In a 27-0 shutout of Piscataway, the Vikings (1-1) limited the Chiefs – in their first game played in two years – to under 200 yards, and had four takeaways.
It was a turnaround from Week One, when they allowed 56 points to now-No. 1 North Brunswick. Of course, Old Bridge (1-1) – the Vikes’ opponent tonight in the Big Central Game of the Week driven by Mark Montenero and his team at the world-famous Autoland – also had their problem with the Raiders, so maybe all things are equal for this game?
Then again, they will face a well-oiled machine in No. 5 Old Bridge’s vaunted triple-option.

For South Brunswick, it’s their home opener, which also means its the first time fans – besides parents and family – have been able to see their team on their home field.
And that can only be a good thing for the Vikings, who have lost two straight in the series, both at Old Bridge, making this the first home game in the set for third-year head coach John Viotto. Both have been nailbiters: 22-18 last year at Old Bridge, and 36-22 in 2019 at Lombardi Field, the final year of GMC play.
