Thursday night in Wayne was a tough test for Pascack Valley as it faced an underrated Wayne Hills team. The Patriots gave the Indians all they could handle, but the Indians prevailed 21-19. The first half was a defensive struggle as neither team could get inside the other’s 20 yard line. That...

Linebacker Rocco Swatek knocked away  a Wayne Hills two-point conversion pass attempt with 20 seconds left in fourth quarter, and the Indians held on for a 21-19 victory Thursday night...

Having been shut out in its last three meetings against Pascack Valley, West Milford was eager to break through on Saturday afternoon. The Highlanders did just that, and quickly, but then PV took over. The Indians overcame an early 7-0 deficit by reeling off five straight touchdowns and cruised...

To Pascack Valley coach Craig Nielsen, the 35-14 loss on Friday night to DePaul was not concerning. Valley had to take their game to the air as DePaul had stopped Pascack Valley’s go- to run game. “They got off the ball better than us,” said Nielsen. Not being in their comfort zone was not...

Execution was the name of the game on Friday night at Pascack Valley. DePaul simply did it better than PV. The Indians faced Kareem Walker, the highly praised running back, and his DePaul teammates.

To coach Craig Nielsen, Friday night's 29-14 PV football win over Montclair was more about execution than it was the game plan. And execute they did. Whether it was Jorge Cortes' 33 carry 200 yard game, or Jack Madden's 7 receptions for 100 yards, the Indians found a way to beat a Montclair team that...
