Bergen Catholic finishes 2021 with a perfect 12-0 record and a New Jersey Non-Public A state championship. Saturday afternoon, the Crusaders, ranked No. 4 in the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football, won the championship by beating arch-rival Don Bosco Prep 28-7 at MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Giants and New Jersey Jets.
DBP, ranked No. 84 nationally at game time, scored first, but after that it was all BC.
