RBR falls to to 0-4 on the season with the loss. Next week's game is on Saturday at home against Neptune at 2:30 p.m.
Fair seas and a following wind nearly carried the Buccaneers to a treasured win Saturday, but the tide turned late in the game, leaving the Red Bank Regional football team high and dry, pillaged by the Ocean Township Spartans, 31-21. Playing at home in Little Silver, the Bucs defense came out strong in the first quarter, shutting down the Spartans' first drive. But after Bucs kick returner Will Noglows took the Spartans' punt to the 15, and a Ross Gisondi pass to junior Dylan DeVita put the team just short of a first down, the Bucs were forced to punt. Xavier Chesnut, Garrett Sickels, Dillon Stambaugh, and the Bucs defense came up big again, and senior Tajhi Tomaino recovered a Spartans fumble at the Buc 15. But again, the Bucs were …

Despite outstanding individual performances, the Buccaneers of Red Bank Regional High School fell short in the Battle of Ridge Road last night, losing 9-3 to a steadier team of Bulldogs from Rumson Fair Haven Regional High School. RBR Coach Nick Giglio said he saw lots of improvement, and in fact the Bulldogs, now 4-0, were heavy favorites. But Giglio felt that an inconsistent offense hurt his team's chances. The Bucs seemed perpetually on the verge of breaking the game wide open, only to lose momentum. The pattern began early, and never let up. In the first quarter, the Bucs defense beat back the Bulldogs' first drive. But a deep Bulldog punt forced the Bucs to begin their possession at their own eight-yard line, with senior Ross …

Red Bank stands at 0-2 after Friday night's 34-28 loss to Wall High School.
Last night's Red Bank Regional-Wall Township football match up under the lights had everything. Wall's stellar runs for an early lead, RBR's gritty, determined comeback, a Bucs touchdown for the tie in the final seconds of the game, and double overtime gave the capacity crowd in Wall an exciting high school football game. For RBR, the only thing missing was the win it badly wanted to jump start the season. When the dust cleared, and the players were pulled off the pile, the Crimson Knights had just barely pushed the ball over the goal line in the second overtime for the win, 34 to 28. It was the first for Knight's coach Nick Gregorio. It was tough going early on for the Bucs, who were down 14-0 at the half. Missing senior standout …

A Bucs fumble on their own five-yard line in the third quarter ended their scoring chances on Saturday.
Red Bank Regional High School's football season opened Saturday with high expectations. Seniors who, as freshmen, went undefeated, led the team onto the field, and the crowd was treated to a beautiful rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" by senior Breyonna Clark. But the game ended on a realistic, if somber, note. Red Bank Catholic won 47-0 and, as RBR Coach Nick Giglio observed afterward, "showed why they are the best team on the Shore." The Bucs played without senior standout Dillon Stambaugh, who likely would have helped contain the score. But at the end of the day, RBR was simply outmatched in this non-conference game. Before a capacity crowd at Red Bank Regional High School, under partly cloudly skies and the …

NJSIAA incorporates the new Group V this season.
The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association released its classifications this week for the upcoming high school football season, following the executive committee's approval to create a Group V designation in the four public school sections in May. Among the classifications are Red Bank Regional and Red Bank Catholic. "This creates a greater opportunity for schools and for student-athletes," Jack DuBois, NJSIAA assistant director who is in charge of football, said following the approval. "It increases the number of teams playing in the playoffs from 128 to 160. At the same time, it eliminates 16 consolation games that schools didn't want to play anyway." The proposal also allows teams with records under .500 to participate in…

Red Bank finishes regular season 5-3, clinching first playoff berth since 2004.
The Red Bank Regional Buccaneers sailed into the playoffs yesterday with a win over the Falcons of Monmouth Regional, 37-7. The Bucs will see post-season action for the first time since 2004, ending their regular season yesterday with a 5-3 record after a romp under clear fall skies in Tinton Falls. "I feel great for the community, and the seniors," said Coach Nick Giglio. "They have fought hard since ther sophomore year, and their leadership has spread throughout the entire team." The Bucs were never seriously threatened by a struggling Monmouth Regional team. In the first half alone, junior Ross Gisondi caught two touchdown passes, senior Nick Patterson caught one, and quarterback Terrance Scanlon rushed for a touchdown. Junior Dillon …

Bucs record now 4-3, a win next week against Monmouth Regional would clinch playoff berth.
The Red Bank Regional football team lost a dramatic game to a tough Barnegat team last night, coming close in the last minute to an upset that would have put them in the playoffs for the first time since 2004. But never fear - a win next week will do the trick. "Win and we're in," said a junior who wished to remain anonymous. "Write it just like that, dad." Under the lights in Barnegat, the Bengals came out strong, scoring on their first drive. By the end of the first quarter, they were up 10-0 after a field goal. In the second quarter, Red Bank struck back with a 31-yard Mike Malley field goal with just over four minutes left in the half. And minutes later, with just five seconds left in the half, the Bucs' Ross Gisondi blocked a Bengals …

Red Bank fights down field to first consecutive victory since 2005, boosts season record to 3-2.
After a scoreless first half, the Red Bank Regional Buccaneers' stellar defense and laser-like offense lit up Raritan's football field Thursday night to defeat the Rockets 14-7 and give the Bucs a winning record of 3-2 midway through the regular season. Coming off a big win last week against Holmdel, Coach Nick Giglio dangled the carrot before the game: not since 2005 had the Bucs won two games in a row. "We had one simple goal of winning two games in a row," he said. "That was the extra incentive our kids played with tonight." The Bucs came close a couple times in the first half, but neither team put a point on the board. Bucs junior Dillon Stambaugh sacked the Hazlet quarterback in the second quarter, which Giglio credited …
