It was a short trip down from Metuchen for the St. Joseph Falcon football team Friday night to play Edison, and the short trip back was a happy one.
Senior Jeremey DeCaro scored three different ways en route to a 35-14 road win at Edison.
DeCaro opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 22-yard touchdown run, followed by a one-yard run by Jason Ridges, Jr., to make it 14-0.
Then, DeCaro picked off a pass in the second quarter and ran it back 64 yards for a score, and hauled in a six-yard touchdown catch from Daniel DeGennaro to make it 28-0.
Edison got one right back on a kickoff return by speedster Ricky Harvey, but that was as close as they would get at 28-7 at the half.
Joe’s got a four-yard touchdown run from Jahcir Styles in the third quarter, and Landen Cruz caught a 19-yard touchdown pass from Landen Cruz in the fourth for the final score.
The Falcons are now 4-2 on the year, while the Eagles drop to 3-4.
