Prior to the wins over the Tigers,
South Brunswick had not opened
the season successfully since the
Friday's game gives the Trojans a
chance to reach a special school
milestone. A West Brunswick win
would be the Trojans KXHh football
victory in the school's history. The
Trojans have compiled a 99-99-1
football record since the school
opened in 1972.
