The Green Wave traveled to MetLife stadium to take on Shawnee HS in the 1st ever CJ/ SJ NJSIAA Group 4 Bowl Championship. Shawnee jumped out to a 17-0 lead with 3 mins to go when Long Branch Jermaine Corbett ran for a 6 yard TD just before the half. Long Branch received the ball in the 3 rd quarter and scored again with a Jermaine Corbett 1 yard run to cut Shawnee lead 17-14. The very next kickoff Qua’Zauhn (Juice) Dennis has a awesome hit on the returner making him fumble and Luke Arnold recovered the ball. With all the momentum the Green Wave struck quickly on the next play with Marc Dennis hitting Matt Clarke with the deciding 20 yard TD pass that would the last time any time scored. The Gren Wave defense buckled down and shut out Shawnee offense in the second half led by Luke Arnold, Jason Glasper, Kevin Cerrutti and Devyn Blount. With the win Long Branch final record was 12-1 overall and 4-1 division record. This Gren Wave team set the school record with 12 wins. Congratulations Seniors.
