Another Doosey as Joes Boots Bergen in 2OTs
As predicted, Week 4 was not the only game vying for GOTY honors. This one boasted an away herculean effort by the Scarlet and Gold, coming back from a 14-0 second quarter deficit to the verge of a big win on an apparent TD run in the second OT, only to be called back by a holding call. BC suffered its first setback of the 2017 season, but in no way was the game anything other than a heroic display of heart and grit.

Game of the Year: Week 4
If you love HS football, this game represented what it's all about. Two undefeated foes battling to be the best the Garden State has to offer. Banged up and bruised, Bergen battled PC's Paladins for four quarters, overcoming a last period, seven-point deficit to win 17-10 on Daniel Kearney's game winning field goal. Andrew Vito and Rhamir Johnson plus a tremendous offensive line performance helped the Crusaders make the drives when needed. Eric Massey forced a fumble, recovered by Aneaes DiCosmo to close out the victory with about 40 seconds remaining. The Shipron Idrizi-led linebacking corp was once again tremendous and applied tremendous pressure to a highly potent Paladin attack. But one of the things that makes 2016 such a remarkable team is the play of its quarterback, Johnny Langan, whose performance demonstrated heart only a champion possesses.
This was certainly the Game of the Year in Week 4. With the schedule BC has, don't be surprised to see a number of other games contend for GOTY status!GAME ARTICLE IN RECORD
