No. 2 Don Bosco (N.J.) romps, 42-9 (video)
Don't put Don Bosco Prep in that category.
In what was supposed to be a showdown game in Ramsey, N.J., Don Bosco dominated its rival and fellow perennial power St. Peter's Prep, 42-9.
It's the 19th straight victory for Bosco, its 33rd straight against New Jersey competition.
Its last loss to a Jersey foe came against St. Peter's. According to The Star-Ledger's coverage on its web site, nj.com, star running back Tony Jones made sure that wasn't going to happen again.
After St. Peter's took a 3-0 lead, Jones returned the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for a score.
Jones then added two rushing touchdowns in the second quarter - one a 57-yarder - to help Bosco take a 21-3 halftime lead.
Jones finished the half with 138 yards and two scores. He finished with 186 yards.
"This was definitely a statement game for us," Jones told The Star-Ledger.
The bigger statement may have come on defense. Don Bosco shut down Jones' counterpart, St. Peter's running back Savon Huggins.
Huggins, who two weeks ago rushed for a school-record 312 yards against another Jersey power, St. Joseph of Montvale, couldn't find any running room against Bosco.
He managed just 12 yards on his first 11 carries and finished with just 44 yards and a TD.
Don Bosco quarterback Gary Nova took over in the second half, throwing three TD passes as Bosco rolled.
