Spotlight on Eastern lineman Mike Montemurro
Spotlight: Eastern senior Mike MontemurroIt was rainy night game on a muddy field.
It was ideal for Mike Montemurro.
"I love those kinds of games," Montemurro said of Eastern's 14-0 victory over Williamstown in a clash of top-five teams on Friday night. "We just had to grind it out."
Eastern won a taut battle of field position, scoring a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter of the West Jersey Football League American Division clash.
"It showed what kind of team we have," Montemurro said.
The 6-foot-2, 260-pound Montemurro is a two-way tackle for the Vikings.
"He's a warrior," Eastern coach Dan Spittal said.
Montemurro has drawn recruiting interest from New Hampshire and Monmouth. He visited New Hampshire over the weekend and plans to visit Monmouth later this fall.
Montemurro said Eastern is in prime position to drive to the program's first sectional title since 2003.
"We're in the driver's seat," Montemurro said.
