No. 6 Old Bridge and No. 2 Hillsborough have a lot at stake when they meet Friday night

Old Bridge senior QB Owen Haughney in a Week 2 game against North Brunswick.

Friday night’s clash at Noonan Field is a big one for a lot of reasons.

Both teams are ranked.

The 6th-ranked Knights have just one loss on the season, while No. 2 Hillsborough is undefeated.

It’s the triple-option with Lawrence Hunter III and Owen Haughney against the one-two punch of Tommy Amankwaa and Tyler Michinard.

It’s also huge for the playoffs.

The Raiders are currently fourth in the South Jersey Group 5 UPR standings, with Old Bridge fifth. And both are still in play for a potential top two finish, which would give them a top seed once the teams are sorted out, and home field through the sectional finals.

But, perhaps after Friday night, only one of those teams will be in play.

Pressure, anyone?

Central Jersey Sports Radio’s Tim Catalfamo will be providing live updates of the contest during the Big Central Game of the Week driven by Autoland, No. 7 Cranford at No. 4 Woodbridge, which begins at 7 pm. He’ll also have postgame reaction on later in the night.
