As the teams took the field, snow had already started to gather on the turf. The young men dressed in maroon and white uniforms seemed little effected by the conditions. Except for the occasional stamping of cleated shoes on the ground and a man using a folding metal chair to clear the goal and side lines of snow, it was like any other high school football game.
The afternoon started with the presentation of the Morristown senior cheerleaders and football players.
It was West Morris that came out fast scoring a touchdown on their first drive. On just the third play from scrimmage, Jason Mackewicz scored on a 45-yard run. Morristown would come back to score on a 65-yard pass from Brian Billak to Kamau Dumas, knotting up the score at 7-7. But Mackewicz could not be contained and just two minutes later he would score again on a 53-yard run.
In the second quarters, the Wolfpack’s Jon Cicone took the ball for touchdown on a 23 yard run. Joe DeBiasse would add a 52-yard reception to make it 28-7 at the half.
In the fourth quarter, Jon Cicone added a touchdown for the Wolfpack on a 2-yard scamper to the right side. Tyler Amandos capped off the West Morris scoring with a 25-yard touchdown reception to bring the score to 42-7.
With seven minutes left in the game, the clock was allowed to run. The Colonials, led by Brian Billak were not finished. On the last play of the game, Billak connected with Kamau Dumas for a 25-yard touchdown pass as time ran out.
