In a tight, back-and-forth game with a lot of big plays, Sayreville made one more than Woodbridge, and the Bombers came away with a 22-20 home win Friday night that will likely improve their playoff standing in North Jersey Group 4.
The Barrons got on the board first with a 55-yard touchdown pass from Derek Anderson to AJ Bosch late in the first quarter, and Sayreville looked like it had the equalizer on the first play of the second quarter on a one-yard run by QB Nick Nunez, but the PAT was blocked.
Sayreville would go into halftime with a 13-7 lead on a two-yard run by Zaimer Wright just 43 seconds before intermission.
After trading punts, the Barrons got the lead back with 2:15 to go in the third on a 72-yard run by Bosch. But Sayreville would answer big.
They got a 56-yard touchdown pass from Nunez to Wright just ten seconds into the final period, then with 2:32 to go Aaron Losada got a much-needed three points on a 41-yard field goal in the rain.
It was needed because the Barrons had one more score left in the tank, a quick toss to Izaiah Toliver to make it 22-20. But when they went for the tie with a two-point try, senior defensive back Ky’Von Mitchell intercepted the pass in the end zone to seal the win.
