According to WCTC’s projections, 19 high school football teams from Middlesex and Somerset Counties have qualified for the NJSIAA playoffs.  That includes Perth Amboy – for the first time ever – and only one top seed, maybe:  Manville, if it wins a coin flip with Burlington City.  The teams – both 7-1 – finished tied in power points, and none of the criteria used to break ties appears to have done so.

The NJSIAA will announce pairings on Sunday.  Assistant Director Jack DuBois says a coin flip, if it’s necessary for Manville, would be held at NJSIAA Headquarters before the pairings are announced, with representatives from both schools to be present via telephone.
