The Scarlet defeated the White 16-10 this afternoon

Though the score wasn't really the point of course. White scored all 10 of its points in the first half with Jabu Lovelace leading the team, and Scarlet scored 10 of its 16 points in the second half with Jabu Lovelace leading that team (and he wasn't the only one changing jerseys). His 54-yard run for a touchdown in the first half was the offensive play of the game, and Jeremy Ito was impressive not only with perfect field goal records for both teams, but also taking over the punting duties from the graduating Hoboken Joe Radigan.

The important points, of course, are that no one was injured (though Kenny Britt took a scary hit right after his first reception of the game), that the weather (after a cold wet spring in New Jersey) was absolutely perfect, and that 11,079 spectators (a record for this scrimmage) had a great time in the Birthplace of College Football watching the game and hanging out with the players taking pictures and getting autographs after the game.

Don't miss it next year.
