Gameday Focus: Week Ten Football Versus Delran


[tinypass_offer text=”Support Local Independent Journalism”]

Coverage tonight features football vs Delran in the season finale for the program and for the fall sports season. Here is our Gameday Focus.

When: Wednesday, November 23 at 7pm

Where: Cinnaminson High School’s George D. Paternoster Memorial Field

Pirates 6-3, 4-0 Liberty

The Pirates come into tonight’s finale with a 6-3 overall mark and a 4-0 mark in the Liberty Division. The Pirates are already guaranteed a share of the division title.

A win tonight would give the Pirates the division title outright. It would also be the first outright title since the 2013 season.

Cinnaminson was eliminated in the first round of the South, Group 2 playoffs by Collingswood 24-22 back on November 11. The Pirates trailed in that game 24-6 early in the third quarter before making a valiant comeback attempt that fell just short.

The loss marked the second of the season for the Pirates to the Panthers, new to the Pirates schedule this year. Collingswood took down Cinnaminson 12-8 earlier in the year, snapping the Pirates five game win streak to begin the campaign.

Cinnaminson will look to do much of the same tonight as they did the last time they played at home following a loss; put up a ton of points.

The Pirates last played at home against Bordentown and came away with a 49-12 win. The 12 points were the first allowed by the Pirates against a division opponent in 2016. Cinnaminson has three shutouts against Liberty teams.

The win over Bordentown followed a 14-6 loss to West Deptford.

Bears 3-6, 1-3 Liberty

Delran comes into today’s contest with a 3-6 overall record and a 1-3 mark in the division.

The Bears slipped into the playoffs, dropping their first round game in the South, Group 2 bracket by a 60-7 score to West Deptford.

Delran began the season 0-4 before winning its next three games to qualify for the postseason despite a 20-14 loss to Holy Cross before the cutoff date.

The Bears lone division win came against Bordentown, 34-14, and it was their first win of the year. Their two other wins came against Burlington City and Deptford.

During their three game win streak the Bears scored 38 or more points in all three games.

Head to Head

The Pirates have dominated this series of late, winning the last five meetings by a combined score of 158-50, including two shutouts.

The Bears have not picked up a win against the Pirates since the 2010 season. That came by an 18-15 score.

Over the last three games alone the Pirates have outscored the Bears 118-16 with those two shutouts.

Last season’s meeting on Thanksgiving Day saw the Pirates take home a 41-16 victory on the road.
