St. Thomas Aquinas pitches 7th straight shutout; blanks Governor Livingston 59-0 to tie playoff era Middlesex County shutout record

St. Thomas Aquinas pitched another shutout.

The Trojans blanked Governor Livingston in North Edison Friday night 59-0 to improve to 7-0, with every game a shutout.

That’s the most since Piscataway logged seven whitewashes in 2004, a year the Chiefs – with three future NFL Draft picks in Malcolm Jenkins, Kyle Wilson and Anthony Davis – went 12-0 and won the second state title under head coach Dan Higgins.

Aquinas will try to make it a regular season sweep – something no team in Middlesex County has ever done, at least in the modern era – when the Trojans take on 7-1 Delaware Valley next week at home.

One of the leaders Friday night was junior Najee Lovejoy. The defensive back – who also had a touchdown catch playing wide receiver Friday night – recorded six tackles, had an interception and two pass breakups in the win. He also had five punt returns for 118 yards against the Highlanders.
