The win moved Wildwood to 5-3. They now have to hope that they've accumulated enough power points to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in school history.

Running back Wes Hills rushed for 234 yards on the ground on only seven carries and scored six touchdowns to lead the Warriors. David Flanders rushed for 46 yards and a touchdown.

But the Warriors' defense was just as dominant, holding Newark Academy to only 2 yards of total offense -- 38 yards passing and -36 yards rushing.
