Moorestown’s football team is known for its offense and specifically its passing game, but the Quakers can run. Timber Creek is known for its defense, but it can play some O.
On Friday when Timber Creek visits Moorestown at 7 p.m., it will not only match 2-0 teams, but some of the top collection of individual talent in South Jersey.
Timber Creek linebacker Quanzell Lambert might be the most highly recruited player in the South Jersey senior class.
Teammate Dajaun Drennon, a 6-4, 225-pound defensive end-tight end, will be among the most highly recruited juniors.
Moorestown senior Andrew Lisa threw 24 TD passes last year and four more in last week’s 38-24 win over Seneca. In two games, Lisa has completed 26 of 37 passes for 450 yards and the 4 TD passes.
The Quakers can also run the ball. During an opening 28-12 win over Paul VI, Moorestown scored all four TDs on the ground. So this is a diversified offense.
Moorestown's Delaney Wallace has run for 192 yards (7.39 avg.) and four TDs. Receiver Zac Frantz can also run the ball with 87 yards on 3 carries and a 46-yard TD. Frantz also has eight receptions for 113 yards and a score.
Timber Creek’s defense has yet to allow the point. The Chargers beat Cumberland 19-0, and the only points allowed in last week’s 40-7 win over Delsea came on an interception return for a touchdown.
And while it’s extremely early, this could be a Group 3 playoff preview. Both teams expect to be in the postseason and it wouldn’t be surprising if they meet sometime in the playoffs.
In Week 3, this should certainly have a playoff feel.
