Paramus Catholic football

Paramus Catholic, ranked #21 in the latest High School Football America Top 25, beat St. Peter’s Prep 33-28 Friday night at MetLife Stadium to capture the New Jersey Non-Public Group 4 state championship, the school’s first since winning back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013.  It was quite a turnaround for first-year head coach Dan Sabella‘s team.  Last season, Paramus Catholic missed the postseason with a 3-6 record.

The Paladins trailed St. Peter’s 14-7 at the half, but went-on a 26-0 run, which gave PC a 33-14 lead early in the fourth quarter.  SPP battled to within five points, but the Marauders’ touched an onside kick try before the ball traveled ten yards.  Paramus Catholic got the ball and was able to run-out the clock to pick-up the victory.
