Zaimer Wright has played in two of Sayreville’s first four games this season. He’s missed the last two and is likely a game time decision this week, says his head coach Don Sofilkanich.
But as the No. 7 Bombers proved last week in a 24-12 win over Edison, they still have plenty of talent on the field.
Quarterback Nick Nunez got the ball to eight other players on offense in that game: six rushed it, including him, and four caught passes, with senior Xavian Pena doing both. Shaun Jackson rushed for two touchdowns, and Travis Gaston ran for another. The Bombers even kicked a field goal.
Not only that, but the offense used the entire field. They ran it left, right and up the middle. They went for short and long passes.
All that should make for a good matchup Sunday with second-ranked North Brunswick (3-0) when the Raiders and Bombers (3-1) tussle at 3 pm in the second of two all-Big Central Conference games at the Rumble on the Raritan at Rutgers University’s SHI Stadium in Piscataway. We’ll have coverage of that game on Central Jersey Sports Radio, right after the first game between No. 8 Hillsborough and top-ranked Phillipsburg at noon. Click here to listen.
