Thanksgiving football preview: Egg Harbor Township vs. Mainland Regional

Mainland Regional running back Nicholas Droboniku looks for a hole during a game against St. Joseph.

Why this game is special: These games often produce an unpredictable result. The 2004 and 2006 games went to overtime. Mainland scored in the final minute to win in 2008. Mainland won 13-9 last year. EHT's last victory came in 2009. The winner gets the Kiwanis Trophy.

Egg Harbor Township update: The Eagles come off a 34-6 loss to Cherokee in a consolation game last Friday. EHT running back Matt Clayton has rushed for 721 yards and seven touchdowns and made 46 tackles.

Mainland update: The Mustangs had their best offensive performance of the season last Friday in a 52-6 win over Cherry Hill West. Running back Brett Edmunds ran for three touchdowns.
