New Providence runs Barth, runs him again, then runs him some more, en route to 35-13 playoff win over Del Val

Charlie Barth rushed 43 times for a career-high 326 yards en route to a playoff-opening win over Delaware Valley, 35-13 in Alexandria Township, as heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio

In the Big Central Game of the Week driven by Autoland, Barth also scored three touchdowns as the fifth-seed in the South Group 2 section advanced.

The win improves the Pioneers to 8-1, while the Terriers drop to 7-3.

Barth was impressive from the get-go, but not just on offense.

In fact, when Del Val got the ball to start the game and was marching downfield, Barth picked off a Jack Bill pass in the red zone to give his team the ball for the first time, leading to his first score of the game.

And Barth feeds Barth, who was named the Autoland Player of the Game, and will receive a custom football at the end of the year.

Barth accounted for 326 of his team’s 343 rushing yards and 355 yards of total offense.

His three TDs also gave him 70 for his career.

The 35 points also marked the first points New Providence has ever scored against Del Val, which had won the only two prior meetings by virtue of shutouts.

The Pioneers will move on to play top seed Pt. Pleasant Boro on the road next Friday night at 7. The Panthers beat 8th-seed Monmouth 34-14 Friday night at home.

Pioneers spread it around in 40-8 defeat of Bound Brook

Bound Brook had the reputation of a spread offense, but New Providence spread the wealth in a 40-8 home defeat of the Crusaders Friday night.

Four different players scored for the Pioneers in the “Big Central Game of the Week” driven by Autoland, as heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio.

Charlie Barth had two scores for New Providence, while Ben Gullo and Dean Licari each had TDs on the ground, and Licari threw another to Jack Verbaro on second and goal.

Barth was the Autoland “Big Central Player of the Game,” amassing 163 yards on just 12 carries, with touchdown runs of seven and 29 yards. He had nearly half his team’s total rushing yards, as New Providence accumulated 328 yards on the ground.

The Pioneers scored on each of their first five possessions of the game, and held Bound Brook scoreless until Patrick LePoidevin’s one-yard TD run with 4:40 left in the third quarter, cutting it to 32-8, though the Pioneers answered right back.

The win moves New Providence to 2-1 ahead of next week’s big rivalry game against Brearley, which also won Friday night to improve to 4-0.
