Woodbridge and North Hunterdon were locked in a tussle, and the Barrons had yet to break through.
The Lions – coming into Priscoe Field with a 1-2 mark, but off a win against Scotch Plains – had led the Barrons 7-0 at the half, and brought that lead into the fourth quarter, where they held it past the midway point of the stanza.
But Woodbridge finally broke through with a 27-yard touchdown run by transfer quarterback Matt Stanton. Decision time and head coach Joe LaSala went for the win.
The decision paid off, as Stanton ran in the two-point conversion, and Woodbridge held on for an 8-7 win that kept them undefeated, and the only Big Central team to be 5-0.
