Sept 23, 2019-- A beautiful Friday night set the scene for what proved to be a thrilling win for the High School North football team Sept. 20.

With hundreds of students, parents, fans, school and district administrators, and board members in attendance, the Mariners defeated Manalapan 42-40 in a game that came down to the final seconds. HSN, which at one point held a 35-20 lead, fended off a furious comeback by Manalapan to escape with the win. TRSTV was on hand to cover the game.

The victory moves High School North football to 3-0 on the young season. The Mariners, ranked no. 3 in the Asbury Park Press's Shore Conference Football Top 10, will travel to Rumson-Fair Haven (ranked no. 4) this Friday Sept. 27.
