Tonight's breakdown: Ocean City quarterback Chris Curran left last week's game against Hammonton with a knee injury. He will be a game-time decision. If he plays, Millville will have to slow down Ocean City's passing game. If he doesn't, Ocean City will have to figure out how to score on Millville's stingy defense. Look for Millville to control the ball with its running game. Expect the Thunderbolts to be aware of Ocean City linebacker Rob Zauck.
