Eagles, Rockets send early messages to Shore

At left, South’s Rob Kelly makes the tackle on Long Branch’s Francisco Gomez. With week one in the books, things went pretty much as expected for the local high school football teams. The local squads that expected to challenge for division titles, and perhaps more, were impressive, while the teams with lower expectations struggled a bit. Middletown South wasted little time in proving to be the team to beat. The top-ranked Eagles played host to fourth-ranked Long Branch on South’s new artificial turf field, and quite simply, it was no contest. The Eagles used a punishing ground attack and a stubborn defense to dominate the athletic Green Wave, and send an early message to the state. The final score was 33-6, and the actual game was every bit as lop-sided as that score indicates. As expected, junior tailback Knowshon Moreno was the spark that led the Eagles. Playing for the first time on the surface that replaced the renowned “Swamp” at Middletown South, Moreno looked comfortable with the change as he rushed for 183 yards on 23 carries and three touchdowns. Behind a revamped offensive line, both Moreno and his backfield mate Trent MacCray (62 yards and a touchdown) found all kinds of daylight throughout the game, as did quarterback Dan Stivala, who rushed for 68 yards and a TD. Middletown South was strong from the start, scoring on all but one series in the first half. Moreno set the tone early, racking up 121 yards on just 13 carries, and getting a pair of TDs. By the time Stivala found the end zone from 28 yards out on a bootleg with just over three minutes left in the first half, the lead was 21-0, and South was cruising. The Eagles then recovered an onside kick on the ensuing kick-off, and three plays later, MacCray was in the end zone on a 10-yard scamper, and at 27-0, with the way the Eagle defense was playing, the game was essentially over at the half. Long Branch managed to get its touchdown in the third quarter on a 15-yard TD pass from Maurice Turpin to Thomas Ellis, capping a 67-yard drive, but the Eagles responded with an 11-play, 69-yard drive, which resulted in Moreno’s third TD of the night, this one from two yards out. In what is expected to be another stellar season for the defending Federal Division and CJ Group III champs, Middletown South got off to a brilliant start. They entered the season with the Shore Conference considering them the best team around. Saturday night did nothing to change that belief. Next up is a trip to Red Bank on Saturday for a rematch of last year’s CJ Group III championship game, won by South. In fact, South beat RBR twice last year, handing the Bucs their only losses of the season. Red Bank, which returns several key players, especially at the offensive skill positions, should provide the Eagles with another tough test, in a game that could very well decide the division title. All this, and it’s only week two. Game time is 1 p.m. The Raritan Rockets welcomed back head coach Bob Generelli in impressive fashion, rolling past Freehold Borough, 37-0. This game was actually more competitive than the final score indicates, as Freehold hung tough with the Rockets through much of the first half, before Raritan blew it open in the second stanza. The Rockets jumped ahead on a 13-yard scoring scamper from QB Andrew Mandeville in the first quarter, then made it 9-0 when Chris Carroll and Mike Plagianakos tackled the Freehold QB for a safety. Freehold recovered a fumble late in the second quarter and drove down to the Raritan 16, but the drive stalled on a fumble of their own. Raritan then allowed junior running back Mike Fitzpatrick to do his thing, rushing four times for 40 yards, before finding the end zone from nine yards out. Fitzpatrick finished the game with 107 yards on 18 carries, and added another touchdown, while Mandeville added a pair of TD passes to Jeff Papcun in the second half to close out the scoring. The Rockets will have their home opener on Saturday when rival Matawan comes to town. The Huskies did not play this past weekend, but should present Raritan with a challenge, with a number of key players returning from last year’s squad. Game time is 1 p.m. The Keyport Red Raiders survived a tough game with Monsignor Donovan to get to 1-0, needing some big plays from their defense in the fourth quarter to hold off a resilient Griffins team, 20-12. Keyport jumped ahead 14-0, scoring a touchdown in each of the first two quarters. R.J. Foster got the first TD, scoring from nine yards out to cap a nine-play, 55-yard drive, while Warren Gumbs raced 89 yards for the Red Raiders’ second score. Gumbs scored again with just over four minutes left in the game from two yards out. But it was the Keyport defense that held strong, forcing two interceptions and a three-and-out series on the Griffins’ final three possessions, to put the game away. Keyport will look for a better all-around effort and a second win on Friday when they head down to West Long Branch to take on Shore Regional — a 31-14 loser to Point Beach on Friday. Game time is 7 p.m. The Holmdel Hornets were the only other local team to get a win on opening weekend, as they knocked off neighboring rival St. John Vianney, 41-13. The Holmdel running attack was in full force on Friday, as the Hornets rushed for 314 yards against the SJV defense, led by quarterback Tom Gorski, who found the end zone three times (63, 11 and two yards). The game was close early on, as the teams traded touchdowns in the first quarter — Holmdel on a 63-yard run from Gorski, and Vianney on a 22-yard scamper from Dave Whittaker. But Holmdel responded with another score (Gorski’s second TD) and entered the second quarter 14-7. The Hornets then opened up the second stanza with a 58-yard scoring run from Austin Misiura, and the lead was 21-7. The same play later in the second quarter sprung Misiura for a 36-yard score, and a 28-7 halftime lead. Holmdel added two more scores — a 50-yard run from Joe Musillo and a two-yard plunge from Gorski — for the final tallies and an impressive opening night win. Holmdel will look to go 2-0 on Saturday when they travel to Manchester. Manchester is coming off a tough 14-10 loss to a good Red Bank Catholic team. Game time is 1 p.m. As for Vianney, they’ll look to turn things around on Friday when they head to Manasquan to take on a Warrior squad that suffered a shocking loss to Pinelands on opening night. Game time is 7 p.m. Like the Lancers, Middletown North had a tough opening night loss against Toms River East, though the game was much more competitive than the 32-7 final score indicates. The Lions fell behind 13-0 in the first half, but came out fired up, as evidenced by Nick Dura’s 54-yard kick-off return. After driving into the red zone, Dura found the end zone from four yards out on an option, and it was a 13-7 game. However, it was all TRE from there, as the Raiders seemed to find their rhythm and reeled off the next 19 points in pulling out the win. The Lions will look to get their first win on Friday when they travel to Brick to take on the defending CJ Group IV champion Brick Memorial Mustangs — a 28-0 winner over Southern this past weekend. Game time is 7 p.m. The Mater Dei Seraphs knew they would be over-matched against a bigger, deeper Rumson-Fair Haven squad, and there were no surprises on Saturday. Rumson was clearly the dominant team, and cruised to a 47-0 win, with all 47 points coming in the first half. The Seraphs will be back in action on Friday when they take to the road to face Monsignor Donovan. Game time is 7 p.m. BY DOUG McKENZIE Staff Writer last_img read more

Kevona Davis stars again

first_imgWorld Youth leaders Kevona Davis of Edwin Allen High and Britany Anderson of Vere Technical High School highlighted action on yesterday’s second and final day of competition of the JAAA National Junior Championships inside the National Stadium. Following her personal best and world leading time of 11.24 seconds to win the Under-18 100 metres on Friday’s opening day, Davis improved her time on the world list as she became the country’s fastest-ever female youth athlete in the half-lap event, sprinting to victory in an impressive 22.97 seconds. Anderson, who owns the top four times in the world in the girls’ Under-18 100m hurdles, dipped under 13 seconds to capture the event, but her winning time of 12.94 seconds had a positive wind reading of 2.3 metres per second, just above the allowable 2.0 m.p.s. Manchester High’s Daszay Freeman, 12.98, was second while Holmwood Technical’s Shanette Allison took third in 13.08. Anderson’s Vere Technical teammate, Amoi Brown, got the better of Wolmer’s Girls’ Janeek Brown in the Under-20 event. Amoi won in 13.39 with Janeek second in 13.51 and Gabrielle McDonald, third in 13.58. Both Xavier Nairne (Under-18) and Christopher Taylor (Under-20) scored easy wins in the 200m. Nairne raced to a winning time of 21.17 while it was an easy stroll for Taylor, who clocked 20.77. Rusea’s High’s Brithon Senior took the boys’ Under-18 110m hurdles in 13.69 ahead of Tarjmaar Miller of Jamaica College, second in 13.98. World leader DeJour Russell missed the race as he was down to compete among the seniors. Overseas-based Damion Thomas captured the Under-20 boys’ 110m hurdles in 13.53. Jamaica College’s Philip Lemonious was second in 13.54. – R.G.last_img read more

Friedman a prize-winning economist

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – Milton Friedman was the rare public intellectual whose ideas extended from the ivory tower to seats of power around the world. So it was fitting when the economist, a tireless proponent of free enterprise who died on Thursday, was lauded by former heads of state as well as his academic peers. Friedman, who won a Nobel Prize in 1976, died Thursday at age 94 in San Francisco, said Robert Fanger, a spokesman for the Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation in Indianapolis. His cause of death wasn’t released. Tributes quickly followed from universities, boardrooms and politicians. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’The chair of the Federal Reserve said Friedman “had no peer.” Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger recalled how Friedman influenced him before the one-time bodybuilder and actor became California’s governor. “Milton Friedman revived the economics of liberty when it had been all but forgotten,” said former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. “He was an intellectual freedom fighter. Never was there a less dismal practitioner of a dismal science.” In numerous books, a Newsweek magazine column and a PBS show, Friedman championed individual freedom in economics and politics. The longtime University of Chicago professor pioneered a school of thought that became known as the Chicago school of economics. Friedman’s theory of monetarism, adopted in part by the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations, opposed the traditional Keynesian economics that had dominated U.S. policy since the New Deal. He was a member of Reagan’s Economic Policy Advisory Board. His work in consumption analysis, monetary history and stabilization policy earned him the Nobel Prize in economics in 1976. “He has used a brilliant mind to advance a moral vision – the vision of a society where men and women are free, free to choose, but where government is not as free to override their decisions,” President George W. Bush said in 2002. “That vision has changed America, and it is changing the world.” Friedman favored a policy of steady, moderate growth in the money supply, opposed wage and price controls and criticized the Federal Reserve when it tried to fine-tune the economy. A believer in the principles of 18th century economist Adam Smith, he consistently argued that individual freedom should rule economic policy. Friedman saw his theories attacked by many traditional economists such as Harvard’s John Kenneth Galbraith. “He, more than any other person, has changed the composition and ideology of the economists’ profession,” said Paul Samuelson, a 91-year-old professor emeritus of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who was a contemporary liberal foil to Friedman’s conservatism. In an essay titled “Is Capitalism Humane?” Friedman said that “a set of social institutions that stresses individual responsibility, that treats the individual … as responsible for and to himself, will lead to a higher and more desirable moral climate.” Friedman argued that government should allow the free market to operate to solve inflation and other economic problems. But he also urged adoption of a “negative income tax” in which people who earn less than a certain amount would get money back from national coffers. “Milton was one of the great thinkers and economists of the 20th century, and when I was first exposed to his powerful writings about money, free markets and individual freedom, it was like getting hit by a thunderbolt,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement. Friedman lived to see free market reforms spread in the former communist world and Latin America, but played down his own influence. “I hope what I wrote contributed to that, but it was not the moving force,” Friedman told The New York Sun in March 2006. “People like myself, what we did was keep these ideas open until the time came when they could be accepted.” Born in New York City on July 31, 1912, Friedman began developing his economic theories during the Great Depression when President Franklin D. Roosevelt based his New Deal on the ideas of Britain’s John Maynard Keynes, the most influential economist of the time. Keynes argued that the government should intervene in economic affairs to avoid depressions by increasing spending and controlling interest rates. Friedman graduated from Rutgers University in 1932 and earned his master’s degree the following year at the University of Chicago. After working for the National Resources Commission in Washington from 1935 to 1937, he served on the staff of the National Bureau of Economics Research in New York from 1937 to 1945 and received his doctorate from Columbia University in 1946. After World War II, he taught at the University of Minnesota, then returned to the University of Chicago. He became a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University in 1977.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
