Spotswood edges arch-rival South River behind Lazar, Christian’s two TDs each

After a scoreless first quarter, Spotswood got things going with a bang and never trailed, hanging on for a 28-14 win over arch-rival South River at Chargers Stadium Saturday afternoon.

The win has Spotswood 4-1, their best mark since starting the 2016 season 5-0. They went 6-4 that year under Andy Cammarano, with a first round playoff loss to Delaware Valley.

Anthony Christian got Spotswood on the board first with a 20-yard pick six to put the Chargers up 7-0, but the Rams got the equalizer on a 62-yard touchdown pass from Parker Lane to Joseph Lepore.

Tied entering the second half, Spotswood got the next three scores, and they would need all of them. Christian took one into the end zone from 31 yard out in the third, then in the fourth, Trey Lazar scored on a one-yard run and a 55-yard pass from Christian.

That 28-7 lead helped the Chargers hold off a furious rally from South River, who used two TD passes from Lane to Mikael Jaynes – of 30- and 28-yards – to close to within a touchdown. But they couldn’t get any closer.

South River falls to 2-2.
