The Lynx took their first step in their quest for a championship, as they held on for a 27-16 win in the first round of the NAFL playoffs on Saturday night at the Church Street Fields in Williamstown.
Marty Cross, who was one of many Lynx players snubbed this week when the league announced its All-Star roster, had a brilliant game. The veteran quarterback rushed for a score, threw two touchdowns, and hauled in a touchdown reception for South Jersey (10-0), which improved to 10-0 and in the process defeated New Jersey for the third time this season and sixth straight time.
David Goree tossed a touchdown pass to Cross, and later hauled in a beautiful one-handed catch late in the game in the win. After falling behind 8-0 early, South Jersey reeled off 20 straight points to take the lead for good.
