Monmouth Regional Looks to Continue its Success Off Bye Week

With a bye last week, the Monmouth Regional football team can’t wait to get back on the field again.

Running back Ian Fitzgerald had 17 carries for 148 yards and had two receptions for 120 yards from quarterback Ryan Convery, totaling four touchdowns to lift Monmouth to a 28-27 victory over Red Bank Regional in Red Bank on Oct. 13.

Fitzgerald scored twice in the fourth quarter on a 90-yard touchdown pass and a 23-yard TD run to lift Monmouth regional to the win.

By the way, Fitzgerald also completed a pass in his only attempt for 56 yards.

The Falcons (6-1), under first-year head coach Larry Nikola, have won two straight games since its first loss of the season, a 13-3 road setback to Point Pleasant Boro, on Sept. 29.

Monmouth, which is coming off a 2-8 season just a year ago, will visit Rumson-Fair Haven in its final regular-season road game this Friday with first kickoff set for 7 pm, before returning home in its regular-season finale to host Saint John Vianney on Nov. 4 at 2 pm.
