Bridgeton High School’s explosive offense proved to be too much for Cinnaminson in a South Jersey Group II football quarterfinal game on Friday.
The Bulldogs won 47-26.
Quasheem Taylor scored on runs of 10 and 20 yards. Cappadonna Miller returned a fumble 22 yards for a touchdown to go with an interception and a 47-yard score.
Cinnaminson, the No. 3 seed, scored first on a 35-yard field goal by Mike Jones. Taylor’s first touchdown run followed that to make it 6-3. Bridgeton never trailed from that point on.
The Bulldogs, the sixth seed, advance to face No. 2 seed Woodstown.

S.J. Group IV
(1) Eastern 32, (8) Atlantic City 26
Atlantic City’s upset bid fell just short as the Vikings had a first-and-goal with less than a minute to go, but turned the ball over on downs.
Derrick Osh-shakkur opened the scoring for the Vikings on a 75-yard kickoff return. He also had a 19-yard run in the first quarter.
Tom Flacco had three passing touchdowns and one rushing for top-seeded Eastern, which will host Millville in the semifinal round.
“I’m proud of how the boys played. They had the intensity that they’ve been looking for all season,” said Atlantic City head coach Thomas Kelly. “In reality, if we brought this kind of play all year we would have been in much better standing; but we have to build from this. It’s not the end of the world. We played a very good opponent and we have to tell the guys that.”
