There was no change in the position of Hillsborough in the unofficial Week 8 UPR standings calculated after Friday night’s games by Central Jersey Sports Radio.
The Raiders – who won at Piscataway 36- Friday night – maintained a 2 UPR, and now have a wide lead over the third place team, but the teams have changed places.
Previous No. 3 Washington Twp. – which plays tomorrow at “C” multiplier St. Joe’s-Hammonton – moved up to second place, while Manalapan – which was second – dropped to fourth with a loss. North Brunswick jumped up four places from seventh to third with a win over multiplier St. Joe’s of Metuchen.
Old Bridge – which had been in sixth – dropped to ninth after a 43-6 win over a weak J.P. Stevens team.
Idle East Brunswick – which plays South Brunswick Saturday – stayed the course in 11th place, while Edison broke its 13th place tie with Egg Harbor, which is behind the, now by 0.8 UPR points. Edison crushed Hunterdon Central Friday night in Flemington 42-7; Egg Harbor won as well.
Outside the bubble, a win by New Brunswick would have done wonders for their playoff hopes. A loss to Sayreville, though, actually moved them up from 18th to 17th, and got them to within 0.8 UPR of 16th place Marlboro, which fell a spot.
South Brunswick got a wee bit closer, and can gain a lot more if they beat East Brunswick (6-1) Saturday afternoon.
