You can always tell that its football season by the leaves on the trees changing colors and the cooler temperatures bringing out the extra layer of clothing. This was the first day of October representing a full month of the fall season. It was another first for Winslow Township as they were the visiting team for the second week in a row looking for that elusive win. It wasn’t going to be easy against a rejuvenated Mustangs team from Triton looking for their second win of the season. The Eagles would come through big on defense stopping Triton when it counted to pick up the 28-16 decision and their first victory of the season.

Triton would score the first points of the game on a Keith Mathis field goal. The offense was able to move the ball down field, but was unsuccessful several times in this game to score a touchdown when they were deep into Winslow’s territory. The Eagles would be reward for their efforts on defense when Jeremy Miles blocked a punt and then recovered the ball returning it to the house giving Winslow a 7-3 lead. Winslow would build on their lead when Anthony Glaud completed a 60-yard touchdown pass to Todshon Jones. Triton would respond with a score of their own before the break when Matt Colucci finished the Mustangs scoring drive with an 8-yard run.

When the second half began, Winslow went right back to the air completing a 15 yard touchdown reception to Stanley Okoro. Closing the gap again by responding with his second rushing touchdown of the night, Colucci’s 1 yard plunge cut their deficit to 21-16 heading into the final quarter. Jeremy Miles put the game out of reach late in the quarter scoring from 4 yards and Winslow Township was able to celebrate their first victory in three tries.
