Piscataway had the ball seven times in the first half of their Big Central National Gold Division game against East Brunswick.

They scored eight times.

The Chiefs got seven touchdowns on offense – plus a big punt return for a score – and about the only thing they didn’t get right was a missed extra point on the first TD of the game in a 54-14 win over the Bears as heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio.

James Bodley got the scoring started on a 54-yard touchdown run with 9:36 to go in the first. After a 3-and-out, DeShaun Stephens returned the Bears’ punt 70-yards for a score, then on the next possession, Kiandre Dato-Snead caught a 48-yard touchdown pass to make it 20-0 less than five minutes in.

The Piscataway-East Brunswick game is sponsored by Piscataway Township and Mayor Brian Wahler.

Jahai Johnson kicked in a five-yard TD haul on the next possession, then Dato-Snead ran one in from tne yards out on the next possession from the wildcat formation, Kenley Candil took a run 27-yards to paydirt, and then fullback Horace Thompson got into the act with a 2-yard TD run, making it 48-0 at the half.

With a running clock, EB got two second half TD passes from backup QB Landon Pernell – starter Elan McCrorey hurt his ankle in the middle of the first half. They sandwiched another kick return by Stephens for Piscataway, who brought the kick back 90 yards after that first EB score.

The Chiefs improve to 4-3, while East Brunswick falls to 0-6.
