The 1-3 Mount Olive Marauders hosted the 3-1 Morris Knolls Golden Eagles in what was to be a battle to edge each other in their division.  Mount Olive fought valiantly but the Golden Eagles came into this game with too much momentum to over come.  Morris Knolls’ runningback Joe Stango found the endzone three times in an offense that outbid the Marauders 54-28.  Here’s how the game played out in photos by Morris Sussex Sports’ own Jamie Conklin.
