The Jr Mustangs football and cheer programs are also excited about the conferences multi levels of competition so they do not have to turn any interested family away due to limitations imposed by conference rules. In addition the Jr Mustangs liked the regional location of other JSFC members. The Jr Mustangs become the 12th member of the Jr Skyland Conference and the third new member in last three years along with Del Val and North Plainfield.

Congratulations to players, coaches and organizations for the Somerville-Banchburg United Varsity and Hillsboro Jr Raiders JV for their victories on 2014 Championship weekend. All four finals teams played well and left it all on the field on a clear but cold November night with hundreds of family, fiends and fans in attendance.
In the JV game, a back and forth battle all game long, puncuated by big plays and huge defense stops came down to a final goal line stand. Hillsborough stood tough with Ridge attempting several passes into the endzone for the win, and nearly completing the comeback, only to be stopped by a resilient and strong willed Hillsborough defense.
The Varsity game was a hard fought battle of titans that was highly contested early on with Hillsborough flexing their size and power only to be bested by the all-around depth, speed and skills of the Somerville-Branchburg team. Somerville took control of the game late in the second quarter on the strength of an unstoppable offensive and an attacking defense. SBU then shut down their opponent the rest of the way, showing why they deserved to be the #1 Varsity team of the Jr Skyland Football Conference in 2014.
Thank-you to the Somerville-Branchburg United organization for hosting a wonderfully run Championship Saturday.
