Murphy Remains Unbeaten, 12-0 Over North Mountain
Murphy improves to 5-0 and is headed to the Public School League Championship with a 12-0 win over North Mountain.

A late interception was called back allowing North to get back into the game but incomplete and dropped passes on consecutive possesions stalled two drives deep into Murphy territory late in the second half.

North Mountain seemed to key on Murphy's two offensive leaders to date (Jose Montes 7 Nic Sotello) and stalled the usually explosive Chargers. But Carlos Rodriguez, a key player/blue chip from last season, stepped up providing a relentless pass rush and another option out of the backfield.

Rodriguez caught 3 passes for 105 yards including a 75 yard reception. He also had 3 sacks and rushed for 40 yards.

Not to be outdone, Sotello had his 4th straight game with a scoring run of 70 yards or more.

Eric Mangum provided most of North Mountain's offense, almost all running the ball with 90 yards on 12 carries. Team-mate Daniel Morales was again unblockable on defense while not allowing a sack on offense. His one armed sack of Montes late in the game sparked North Mountain in the closing minutes but it was too little, too late.

Murphy awaits the winner of Saturday's
